Need for Speed Underground 2 -also known as NFS- is a sequel of the popular street car racing game from the same franchise.
The most remarkable difference, compared to the previous edition, Need for Speed Underground, is the possibility of highly personalizing the car as you prefer without having to download patches.
As we already said, this game consists in street car racing . The action of the PC video game is set in the fictitious city of Bayview, which has five different neighborhoods.
Gameplay of NFS Underground 2
The key of the free trial of Need for Speed Underground 2 is to complete every race arriving in the first position. In order to achieve that, you will have to beat all your opponents who drive around the streets of this big metropolis.
This time, the PC game comes with different upgrades which improve graphics and sound effects and integrate new game modes, among others.
As we already mentioned, this edition includes some improvements. For example, it gives you more tuning options and control over your vehicle. This way, you can customize the interior and the exterior of the car with a great level of detail.
Besides, it offers eight competition modes and there are three game modes. In relation to the graphics, this sequel has improved them. However, they are still a bit weak and look a bit pixelated.

Need for Speed: Underground 2 is a car racing game that lets you customize your chosen racing machine and upgrade it as your career progresses. I’ve been playing NFS Underground 2 and it really is an upgraded version of the original NFS Underground. You’ll encounter several types of races, which include a standard circuit race, a sprint race, drag racing, drifting and the Underground Racing League.
Need for Speed Underground lets users customize their vehicles prior to racing, and more options will be unlocked as the player’s career progresses. You’ll be able to modify your racing machine’s wheels, side skirts, spoilers, roof scoops, doors and so much more. There are 3 gaming modes and you can play head on with other human players in multiplayer mode. Game play is truly exciting though you may notice that graphics in newer software are better. The game’s heads up display (HUD) show indicator panels for odometers, nitro boost and location on the racing map. Of course the general objective of this game is to drive faster than any of your opponents.
Overall, Need for Speed: Underground 2 is a perfect software for those interested in the Need for Speed gaming experience.
- Improved gaming features in sound and graphics
- Game has three modes and eight competition modes
- Racing enthusiasts can look around for more advanced racing games features

The action takes place in the fictional Olympic City, where the player must gain his respect and be the best by...well...winning races and be more notorious. The game features many game race mods, such as Knock-Out, Circuit, Sprint, Drag, and Drift. All race types have a different style of racing, especially Drag and Drift, which require the player to push his skills to his limits in certain events if he wants to win. The Career also features a top 10 ranking with the best racers in the town, magazines which can be unlocked by the player by his progress in career, but also for doing certain things. Career also features an option to choose your race difficulty, which everyone has it's own cash reward depending the difficulty you chose. Parts for both visual and performance, and even cars, are unlocked by completing regular events, while is also featured a tournament mod with more stages, in which the player unlocks performance upgrades. The gameplay is great and fun, but also can draw bit of criticism because of the car's handling, which after becoming tuned, the handling is a bit too responsive, and can make you easily crash. Also the city isn't really small so a Free Roam mode is more than welcome, and the gameplay is very linear and many races are repetitive. The visuals aren't bad at all, but certainly could've been better, most of the map props are looking good, while some don't, for instance the traffic cars, which have a terrible amount of detail.
- Great fun for both beginners and pros
- Ability to customize many parts of the vehicles
- Graphics are a bit outdated
- EA stopped providing game support

This is a racing game under the need for speed games created by Electronic arts. Every need for speed game is a good creation for the gamers to enjoy because of the thrill and adrenaline involved. Need for speed underground 2 clearly achieves that through its gameplay. It is the eighth game under need for speed and is available in various platforms like Ps2, Xbox and windows just to mention but a few. It has nice graphics.
The main agenda in this game is street racing where the setup of the races is in “Bay view’’ which is a city in the game with areas such as Coal harbor and Beacon hill. The gamer is guided through the game by a voice, with a lot of features such as customization of cars for the street races. Actually you can customize almost everything that is customizable on an actual car which makes it great and fun. The new features like introduction of SUV vehicles and the explore mode of driving where you ride around the city without any objective makes it even more enjoyable to the gamer.
The races are provided as Drag, drift, Sprint, and circuit which have different race objectives. There are various cars to choose from. The fun part of this game is the career mode which is based on a storyline where the main task at hand for the gamer is to get his role back as the best street racer in Bay view which is not an easy task because the racer has to win many races to get to the top. The soundtracks on the game are good and it has a multi-player option online on some of the platforms like the Ps2 and Xbox. Generally it is a good game.
- There are various cars to choose from.
- The soundtracks on the game are good.
- It can be annoying due to repetition.
