One of the most popular Pc racing game franchises of all time, the Need for Speed series indeed is a class apart from the other Pc games. The mere mention of the NFS series brings a smile to the faces of the avid gamer. In the world of burning rubber, drifting tires, and crazy racing, the hardcore gamer finds its true calling. Each level intensifies the fun. Further, it can be played across different platforms making it an exciting challenge. Let’s delve a bit deeper into the eighth game of the NFS series i.e. Need for Speed: Underground.
Unlike other racing games, this franchise was quick to come up with new installments of the game. Electronic Arts dropped its iconic Need for Speed: Underground in late 2003. The very next it was followed by Need for Speed: Underground 2. This sequel expands the storyline initiated by its predecessor. Electronic Arts adds a slew of upgrades in the new version. A wide array of maps to choose from, extensive customization of the cars, and several cool add-ons, make the game even more interesting.
As the title suggests, the game is not simply about mindless racing through the city and the suburbs. Its narrative revolves around the unnamed player and his encounter with different street gangs. These are no ordinary run-of-the-mill gang, but a synchronized group of professionals engaged in illegal racing all around the neighboring cities. Our protagonist must defeat the gang members posing as car racers and become the best racer in the whole region of Bayview by eventually defeating the gang leader in a final race. An interesting plot adds to the thrill of the game and does not let it go all mechanical.
The game provides different modes of racing. Among the prominent modes are circuit, sprint race, and drifting. Unlike the previous installments of the series, the races in this game are time-bound. Other than the original modes, we also have new additions like Underground Racing League and Street X. Outruns and Special Events further keeps the intensity high.
In terms of vehicles, similar to its predecessor, this game too provides a variety of cars to choose from. The gamers also get to drive SUVs. Customizations are available but they cost extra cash. The players must earn the in-game bonus and also unlock achievements. Thus Need for Speed: Underground 2 justifies its legacy and further makes the franchise more iconic. Hardcore racing gamers will love the intense experience of zooming through the Underground, collecting the bonuses, and defeating their opponents.
