5.0 out of 5 stars Ridiculously fun... November 19, 2003
By A Customer
This game is a great balance of fun and realism. Not as realistic as some of the other games, but just a really ridiculous amount of fun. The game modes are great (Drag, Circuit, Sprint, and Drift) and make for a good amount of variety. The graphics are fantastic, the audio is great (not enough blowoff valve noise, unfortunately), and the music is always good. The tracks are huge, have all kinds of shortcuts and opportunities for extra style points. The sense of speed is absolutely incredible, and pushing the NOS button is just too sweet. There's over 100 'missions', which makes the game appropriately long.
There's a few downsides, but none of them is overwhelming. If you don't have a high-res cable, the graphics suffer quite a bit, and gameplay suffers from fuzzy graphics turnout. The music *sometimes* feels a bit repetitive, but there's a lot of tracks, so it's not a terrible thing. I'm not huge on the trigger accelerators (prefer the buttons for acceleration) but it's also not a big deal. The steering can suddenly feel twitchy, but I suppose that happens when you're pushing 150mph. I really, really wish there was a 'wander' mode where you could wander the streets and pick a fight (see Tokyo Extreme Racer Zero).
Finally, my biggest compliment and my biggest beef with this game stem from the same thing: the VW Golf GTi. I think this is the only game that includes this amazing car (a good thing) but the research is horrible (a really bad thing.) Whoever did the research for the game intended for it to be a VW Golf (not a GTi), and the stats reflect that. Luckily, you can beef up the car to its rightful place (in front of all the other cars), so it's all good.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible! Endless Fun. November 27, 2003
By A Customer
Verified Purchase
I've played a lot of racing games - including many earlier releases in the 'Need for Speed' line - and "Underground" is one of the best. Compared to another decent racer, Breakout 2, NFS Underground is way more challenging and less cartoonish. I finished Breakout 2 in a couple of days, and never returned to it again. I've been playing NFS Underground for nearly the same amount of time, and I've barely scratched the surface. According to the level counter, I still have another 100 challenges to go before finishing.
Graphically, the game is very rich -- I happen to have a digital TV with component video cables hooked up to my GameCube and the details are so sharp they're almost distracting. In first-person view (car on screen), the frame rate is noticeably lower than playing at road-level (without the car). In this mode, the game is very intense, with a very high level of realism when you hit high speeds.
On top of that, NFS Underground isn't just running around a track. It takes place late at night in an urban setting, with lots of shortcuts, construction sites to blaze through, and even a partially-open bridge to jump over. The maps are very challenging, but a blast.
And then of course there is the car customization. I've never been into "skinning" a car in other games, but something about NFS Underground makes you want to deck out your ride with all kinds of decals, funky paint, tinted windows, wheels, under-carriage neon, and all the rest. It's actually fun, and very easy to apply.
In all, the game is a blast, and a very good value considering how many levels / challenges there are. Replay value is sky high. If you like racing games, you have to get it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Only one Complaint February 5, 2004
By FeniX
NFS- Underground is an awesome game. The track selection could have been slightly more even ie. same amount of rap/edm/rock/punk
but thats ok.. they all jam.. and you can cut off the ones you dont like..
My main gripe with the game.. NFS.. Why isnt there an indash view like on most racing games.. I mean.. the cars handle right.. well concidering that its a game.. so why not feel like you are really in the car... the bumper view really sucks. because it gives you a floating perspective.. and the off tail camera is so fake feeling.. oh well.. my Miata is hopped up.. Its all good..

4.0 out of 5 stars (8.0 out of 10) fun, but flawed. December 3, 2003
Okay, so everyone is nuts about this game. and when i finally played it, i understood why. the cutomization options are such a fun gimmick- i had a lot of fun turning an ugly yellow VW GTI into a drag racing monster with beautifully tinted windows, custom decals, and rims of my choosing. It's what everyone wants when they play a racing game- the ability to craft a car that suits their taste, right down to the type of exhaust. And i have no problem with the fact that this feature was implemented. i think it was a good idea. The problem I have is with the way that it was implemented.
Why am i still unlocking decals and vinyl at level 100? who cares that i finally unlocked the nitrous express decal; dont i deserve more than that at level 100? and why dont i get the wide body kit until the 3rd to last race? great! i can throw this wide body kit on my car, which does absolutely nothing for performance, so that i look good for the final competition.
Money is never a problem in this game. You always have more than enough to unlock anything you want, because you get money after every race. So, a better way to do this would have been to make everything availible from the start of the game, with higher prices on the performance parts and consistent lower prices on the things you dont need (like decals and vinyl). That way, the player can see what they could potentially be unlocking and work for it, instead of just having it blindly handed to them when they can most definately afford it. But because of the way the customization system was implemented, theres really no point in having money in this game.
My other complaint is with the AI. its not like you're actually racing to gain distance on other cars, ever.
