Rated 9 out of 10 by ggsrox One of the best NFS games
This is by far the best NFS game in the whole series. You can customize almost every aspect of the cars, there are dozens of tracks, and it also includes challenge that gets greater as you progress through the game. I also like how they included SUVs in this edition of NFS. It is the only NFS game that has done that and I'm upset that they didn't do it again because I think it would be really fun to drive a Hummer on NFS: ProStreet or NFS: Undercover. The only thing I don't like about this game is that there is no cops. I think that a big part of NFS games is running away from the cops. However, they did put in something called an outrun, which is kinda like running away from the cops (the "going as fast as you can" part of it), but it will never replace running away from the cops and I'm kinda happy that they took outrun out. In short, I would recommend this game to any NFS addict or anyone that loves customizing cars and roaming the streets freely. Again, this is the best NFS game of the whole series.

The way you can customize these cars is amazing.Just about every color ever, and cool decals/designs for it too,as well as tuning and putting better parts in after you win races and get the money for em.You can even get spinners for the rims and change their color and rim color too and spoilers,change head/tail light design,Put decals(company's names),on top of front/rear windshields as well,Even put a glow color under the car(It all happens at night anyways)you can tint the windsheilds too!also there is attachments to the front/rear bumpers and sides of the car.I got the Miata,It is awesome looking now!!!You have the option of even being able to install a device that can make your car bounce up and down.The races themselves are hard at first,but really fun!!!Once you've started upgrading you car parts on your car,you really start having fun.The GPS is great and helps you keep from getting lost,and Rachel(Brooke Burke)is soooo hot!!!! I love this game!!!!!
Rated 10 out of 10 by DragonMachine the peak of nfs history
this was the first need for speed game Ive ever played. and i have to say, it is the best. i cant even begin to describe the vehicle customization. its absolutely off the charts! the most Ive ever seen in a street racing game. it was a tough game too. defiantly delivered the challenge. at the time, the graphics and animations were spectacular creating a vibrant open world game with miles of exploration and a terrific nfs sound track.the vehicle variety is vast with modern day tuners along with some suv's and even a mustang. the driving was very realistic for a street racing game which gave you the feel of real street racing. the nfs series has been declining in delivering worthy nfs games. most wanted was the last good nfs game. carbon was mediocre, pro street wasn't very good, undercover was bad, and i haven't tried the new shift. but apparently its good. but if there is one need for speed game that all racing fans need to play, it would be UNDERGROUND 2!
Rated 10 out of 10 by jbourne Even better than the first NFSU game
NFSU2 is even better than the original. There are far more cars to choose from and even a few SUVs that can be hard to control around the sharp corners. Perhaps the biggest improvement from the first game is the massive free roam environment. Being able to drive around the entire city is awesome and the city looks amazing no matter which neighborhood you're driving in. The career mode is much easier than Need For Speed Underground. The problem is that the career mode has way more races and sometimes getting to events can be a drag having to drive from one side of the city to another. The car customization is incredible. Not only can you customize the exterior of the car but also the inside. The trunk can hold Amps, small TV screens, bottles of NOS and even speakers. The doors can also be customized to open up like an exotic sports car. This game is better than the first NFSU game because it has free roam, more in-depth car customization and a better and wider selection of cars. This game will be fun for anyone who likes street racing and fast cars.

This game is totally great! I love how you get to customize the doors, trunk, and hood. This game is awesome! You should get this game if you love cars. The trunk is my favorite because you can put in T.V.s and speakers and other things too. It's cool how you can change the head lights too. This game is amazing. The bad thing is that you can't free roam in 2 player mode, but you can make multiple profiles and in splitscreen you can use the cars from different profiles even if you on a different one. Me and my brother really enjoy this game. I wish they had made other Need For Speed games with door, and trunk customizations in other games. The hydrolics are very cool as well. Its fun how you can jump. That would be funny if you could jump on to cars. I hope you enjoy this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by beingme123me Great Game!!
Ok. So I was looking for a game where there was free rome and also racing. I was looking for a game like this because I am excited to get a license and this game gives me plenty of practice. The graphics are great and the songs are mostly hardcore rock and softcore rock, but every once in a while you hear some rap songs. You can customize the car and that isn't even the best part!!! You can also have more than one car. I think the limit is like 5 to 6 cars. I have both games: Need for speed: Underground 1 & 2 and the second is better by far. If you are anything like me and like to rome around cities with no limitations, then you should really get this game!!
Rated 9 out of 10 by DCSchark Entertaining and Awesome
All I have to say is this. (1) Graphics are awesome, and the rain is almost realistic. (2) The cars all sound different, but the soundtrack is sort of lame. (3) If you own a steering wheel peripheral, your in for a real treat! (4) I've played this for a couple of months since I bought it, and I've finally beat it! [I played about 3-4 hours every weekend.] (5) Finally, once you've beaten the game, it starts to get real boring because you can't do anything in career mode. :( But, that's one of the major setbacks to this wonderful game. Buy it if you want it. 8)
Rated 10 out of 10 by BigG13 Best of its genre
Need for speed: underground 2 is truely the best racing game of its time and a true shame the underground series ended here. The gameplay is good and you are never bored with them game. The lasting appeal is superb spending hour racing, tuning, and just driving around the well graphically built city. The sound track is set up of a perfectly disigned selection of rock, and rap such as snoop dog and skindred. Perfect game for any gamer......

Need for Speed Underground 2 continues the story from the original in a new city with new antagonists.
Underground 2 gives you 4 times as much customization ability than the original, including vertical doors, rear subs, LCD's, more rims, more bumpers, skirts, and spoilers, headlights, paints, and ALOT more! Take on the streets of Bayview with a new feel to the street racing feel. High recommendation!
Rated 10 out of 10 by republic Best racing game ever
This game is pure awesome! The sound is great and so is the gameplay. But the best thing is the graphics. Now you're most likely sayin right now, its a ps2 game you noob go and get a 360. First of all i am not a noob i can pwn anyone in MW2 and i don't own it, but anyway, this game looks like it could be on a next generation console. Great game, became a greatest hit. GET THIS GAME
