Pimp YOUR ride
26 December 2006 | by saxon-7See all my reviews

Starting up from where Underground left, you arrive in Bayview and must once again start from scratch by pimping and enhancing your ride and rise through the ranks.

This game is not very different from NfS:Underground (nor should it be) except that it's a new town and you have more cars and visuals to choose from (to be expected) and a few new types of races (street X and a new Drift variant). The graphics and sounds has of cause improved but in the game play and last ability categories it hasn't change much.

In fact there isn't much different between Underground and Underground 2, Underground 2 misses the exactly same things as Underground, mainly that you can't damage the car in anyway, but this is a general thing for NfS games up to this point (bar Porsche).

The difficulty levels also lacks some sense, easy and medium is almost too easy and hard is indeed HARD, I found myself unable to beat the opponents in one of the URL races even with a maxed out car at that given point in the game (granted it's wasn't the fastest car money can buy in the game nor had i fiddled with with it, but still I should be able to at least hang on to them). While you can pimp the car with many visuals, I find the selection of Roof Scoops and Side Mirrors lacking (maybe it's just me but I don't like the overall look of the cars with practically all of the options).

This is a good game but lacks that little thing that makes it great, a 7 out of 10.
