5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun November 28, 2004
By AK
Platform for Display:PC
I don't know what it is about EA Games or whoever writes the Need for Speed series. Others have said that every other Need for Speed release is great and the other half stinks. Anyway, the last Need for Speed Underground (1) was a big disappointment, too much bling, bling, "you go girl" stuff, in addition to the software creators locking you out of tracks and cars until you complete certain tracks, very annoying... Once again, this game is a major improvement to the first of this series. Obviously the creators have listened and have opened up most of the cars and tracks and allow you to just cruise the city in whatever car you want. You can also upgrade the cars with mods to see if they help the performance. The graphics are excellent but at 1600 x 1200, they start to slow down my 3.06 GHZ, ATI 9800pro system. I find the graphics totally acceptable at 1280 x 1024 with max details. I really enjoy the game and find the physics to be very good. I'd say tat they could work on the feedback in the force feedback steering wheels to be more representative of oversteer/understeer, etc. I'd have to say that this game is an equal to Porsche Unlimited and I'm happy I bought it..

4.0 out of 5 stars Best race game ever December 30, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off, the PC version with a decent system simply blows XBox and PS2 away, there simply is no comparism in graphics and gameplay.

Second, I see alot of posts talking about this game in the early stages (Miata, Supra, Hyundai etc). This game has to be PLAYED to be appreciated. Ive played it for weeks, have unlocked ALL parts, ALL cars, and am only about 60% completed with the game, and thats playing every day, and winning very well. The top end cars (Skyline, 350z, WRX, Mustang GT) are absolutely exhilerating. The gameplay makes every car stand out in different ways. Have a front wheel drive car? Its going to COMPLETELY handle different than a rear wheel drive counterpart. Have great handling but no power? You will own on tight courses. Etc etc. Again Ive been playing this for about 3 weeks and its still my favorite game and Ive unlocked all parts and cars.

Its nice that you can customize the looks (or even add different spinner or hydraulics) to your car in a million ways (literally) but the real shine of this game is the racing. Its awesome, its a challenge, and ITS REPLAYABLE (umm I have only picked about 8 cars throughout the game and there are like 30 to choose from)

Stop reading these silly pros n cons, if you have a PC with decent vid card (high end ATI or NVidia), you will no way be dissapointed and you will put the Xbox and PS2 versions to shame.

Truly a superb game if you like racing. BUY IT

5.0 out of 5 stars EVERYTHING a sequel should be. November 21, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
One of the FEW games actually worth the money.

I have been following the NFS series since "Need for Speed" hit the PC oh-so many long years ago. So I've seen MORE than enough racing games. The good, and the bad. Right now, you're looking at the best.

EA took a lot of criticism for straying from the exotic muscle car genre they created... but now that we're up to the sequel of one the most succesful racing games ever published, it's safe to say they they made a good move. To say the least. THIS is what "Need for Speed" has become.

There's not a whole lot to say that hasn't already been said by so many people... if you've made it this far, then you already know that. And, I agree with them all. If you're looking for an unreal racing game, this is it.

It's been my experience that one of the better changes made from the first Underground is the ability to choose for yourself what event you want to race... they're not picked FOR you. As you drive around Bayview, you can pick and choose your event, and if you don't like drifting for example, then you don't have to drift.

Other new additions are the "Outrun" mode where while driving in free roam mode to say, an event, you come upon other racers who will challenge you to an "outrun" race immediately on the fly, where you're thrust into a quick race against that other racer... the first to lose the other person by 500 feet wins. DEFINITELY breaks up those long drives from one side of Bayview to the other.

Numerous exterior (carbon fiber mirrors, and spinners) and INTERIOR (custom instrument panels and trunk audio layouts) have been added.

As for graphics, and sound, everyone else has already praised them enough...

4.0 out of 5 stars For better and for worse March 6, 2005
Platform for Display:PC
I must admit, I'm quite fond of both the NFS:U games and the second in the series proves a worthy if somewhat fluffy sucessor.

The basic formula is unchanged: you buy, trick-out and race high performance cars through the moonlit streets of a thriving metropolis. The most notable difference in NFSU:2 is the wide-open city that spraws beneath your wheels. Some have said this aspect serves to distract from the flow of the game, but for the most part, I find it to be a welcome and generally enjoyable addition. To me, the racing engine in this game is nice enough to make cross-town trips less of a chore; not to mention the scenery is pretty nice.

Another flaw (though it depends how you look at it) in the new design is that rather than having tracks built to look like a city (as in NFS:U1) you have a city with built-in tracks. Most oof the races in the game will put you in a closed-off section of the city. While this is nice for continuity, the "real-life" streets of Bayview are at times somewhat less enjoyable to race on that the specifically-designed city tracks of the original game. The excess of sharp corners and the like are a contrast to the more race-friendly tracks of NFS:U1.

This brings us to the next aspect, the cars. NFSU:2 features a metric buttload of machines for your tuning enjoyment, including most of the cars that were in the original. I've found that the "power bar" rating system is somewhat misleading, and recomend that you test out cars in Quick Race to really get a feel for their performance. The rating system seems to be pretty static in nature, not accounting for a car's weight and size. The physics engine in the game, however, does. Meaning cars with identical ratings may often perform entirely diffrent from one another.
