Enter the world of urban street racing and high performance tuner cars with the latest title in the hit Need for Speed series: Need for Speed Underground. Take on today’s most popular tuner cars from Mitsubishi Motors, Subaru, Toyota and many more, building the ultimate street machine by earning cash to pay for custom body kits and a host of licensed car performance mods. But just creating a custom street racing machine will not get you to the top; it takes a certain amount of attitude and razor sharp driving skills to compete in the tough world of urban racing.

4 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I love the game overall, but it has some downfalls. First, it's NOT a simulation game, ala Gran Tourismo. It's an arcade game with some cleanly but simply done simulation aspects added in (gladly so, mind you). Most of the race modes are a lot of fun, but the traffic is extremely frustrating (they'll pull out in front of you when there's no chance whatsoever to maneuver, especially in the drag racing portions) and some maps take many tries to finally pass, through no fault of your own. Otherwise an extremely enjoyable game, which is well worth the menial cost! I strongly encourage it for the money! Beautiful graphics and so-so online play as well!

5 out of 5 eggsthe best

Comments: this game is bomb. graphics and game play is way better than ps2 and gamecube. when i played this game for ps2, i never wanted to play this game again until my friend told me it's better for pc so i tried and it is. if you have the best graphic card out there then this game will be even better cause you can turn all the details on without slowing down the game. it's a recommended racing game. thanks to newegg it's really cheap and shipps really fast.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: I highly recommend you build yourself a nice PC in order to enjoy this game and the quality of fun and addiction combined. It caused my buddy his job cuz he got a little addicted but I guess that is what happens if you do not focuss on RL things before gaming. This game is fun and playing online is a BLAST.Once you beat the game once you have access to all the cool parts and what not but the car you beat the game with will remain as an original and you will not be able to modify it any more. I like this game a lot =)

5 out of 5 eggsA Semi-Original NFS Title

Comments: If you’re into modding for cars you’ll love this game, and even if you aren’t into modding cars, the various race modes will provide a welcome breath of fresh air - as (thankfully) the only thing this NFS retains is its name.

I have to say that I was extremely disappointed by the releases after the original NFS (back when they used the Car & Driver name). It seems they all turned into arcade hits and while I could have forgiven the very unrealistic driving physics, these games didn’t even bother with physics (the “floating car” and “drive a space ship” syndromes). To make matters worse, the NFS name had gotten into a rut.

It’s with this apprehension that I approached NFSU, thinking - “uh oh, another graphically over-hyped boring rendition of NFS.” To my surprise (and delight) I was proven wrong! This game takes the “police chase” model that the previous titles were (in)famous for and eliminates it - a good thing to be sure!

It goes even further by introducing circuit racing on the streets with REAL street cars, not expensive exotics (though the Nissan Skyline is borderline). My first car was a VW Golf GTI and it was actually slow to accelerate, had little options in terms of visual upgrades, and was for all intended purposes a GTI; this is a good thing! After a while and a lot of races I began to unlock performance upgrades that turned that stock GTI into something that could really race.

The races aren’t limited to the “default” circuit type races either. They have drag mode, which emphasizes shifting at the proper RPM to gain maximum acceleration. There’s the rally-based drift mode, where style points are what wins you the race, and sprints that allow to run a course similar to circuit but without the laps and filled with enough changes to keep you guessing.

The greatest addition/change to the game however has to be the customization features. From custom headlights and taillights to spoilers and hoods; from custom paints (and types of paint) to vinyl - you literally customize all the cars to look entirely different. EA claims there are something like 7 million different combinations, and while I obviously haven’t tested them all, I can tell you that since I’ve had this game from November I’ve yet to see one car that is custom modded like another (unless it was done on purpose).

Overall I’d highly recommend this game! Whether you are a racing fan (not a hard-core sim, but no question the variety screams fun), a custom mod fan, or even someone who likes games based on progression/character development I would suggest you take a look at the game. In fact, download the demo and see for yourself. I was doubtful at first - that is until I downloaded the demo and was immediately hooked; I’m sure you will be too.

5 out of 5 eggsigotaNFS

Comments: buy this game it's amazing the computer version beats the H.E. DoubleHockeySticks out of the PS2 version. It seems to run quicker and smother and much better graphics on the PC. For fans of NFS and Gran Turismo, only thing is no cops (a plus in this version trust me) and until GT4 this game owns the modding car genre of racing games...
