NEED FOR SPEED UNDERGROUND 2 _______________________________________________________ Need for Speed underground 2 is everything I expected it to be. I loved it from the moment I started. It is simply amazing. Ratings: Graphics- 10 out of 10 The graphics in NFSU 2 are breathtaking. The car images, racing, and surroundings provide more than enough to please even the pickiest gamers. I love the effects of breaking through the city using nitrous. It is awesome. The car options and even original street cars look good. Sound- 10 out of 10 Fat Joe on the soundtrack, along with snoop dogg, makes the sound really good. The engines sound better than any other racing title out. The nitrous explodes you into an awesome world of rich sound. Setup- 10 out 10 The setup is so easy, it's like having a road map for your game. There is a lot of features, but they are all so easy to access. From options, to career to quick race and customize, there is no way you can get lost in features. Controls- 10 out of 10 Is there anything I can say? Another 10. The controls are easy to learn at default level and you customize them to your own liking. The car movements are smooth and also customizable. Gameplay- 10 of 10 The gameplay is excellent. It provides new races, such as downhill drift, which is drift combined with sprints, a new explore feature allowing you to roam around the city, searching for races. There is also shops you must find and explore. You can find so many new races. The racing is intense and really fun. Also provided is a Showcase feature allowing you to show off your car to put on the cover of magazines and DVDs. If you don't like exploring, NFSU 2 has an alternative. The World Map allows you to play like Underground 1. I could go on and on about the gameplay, but I won't Oh, Yeah, you can also challenge others to outrun races in which you cna steal there money but outrunning them in your car. Overall- 10 out of 10 One thing: This game rocks. I loved it. The new races, selection of cars, including GTO and Mustang GT, plus, my favorite, Nissan Skyline. The new races and explore mode provide exciting gameplay options and the game even includes a demo of Burnout 3, which I should have a preview soon. I tell you, if GT4 is as good as supposed, it will have extreme competition. I recommend this game at all costs. I enjoyed it more than San Andreas and HalfLife 2 put together. It's that good.
