The racing is excellent. The cars handle very good.
The best of the Need for Speed game so far. The free roam is awesome, menus are very easy to use.
This game will be challening if you never played any N. F. S. games before. I have had a couple of freeze-up during play, nothing major just frustrating having to reset the consule.
Here is a tip: If you have a save on your memory card for N.F.S. underground 2 you will get 10,000 extra cash when you buy your first car.

Need for Speed underground 2 (review)

Need for speed underground 2 is one of the best racing games for the playstation 2. This game features something that was never used in previous titles, that is the "world" feature. I enjoyed this game as I drifted around all the tight corners, barely missing the cars. Even though i have a bias towards 1st person shooter games i really enjoy racing games too! This version of need for speed incorporates one of the best engines for real world driving. I read in a previous review that the steering in this game was terrible. And with that I ask, how you ever tried to steer at 120 + miles per hour? That, if anything, increases the realistic effect of this game. Also this game is long and challenging, which makes it fun to play. Also more mods such as "lambo doors" (my favorite) and a System in tha trunk. Accessories in this game have increased also. The only thing that i didn't like about it was (dare I say it) the SUV's. Wow....The handling on these are just terrible, along with the speed. I know the concept of it is great, but they could of done a little better in making them more fun. Don't get me wrong, i have a Caddy, but all I use it for would be looks. Also the way that you mod your car has changed for the worse. In underground 1 the car wasn't on a gigantic turn table. But other that those cons listed above, this game rocks. Rent it and see for yourself. (game rate 8 = very good)

Unlike most racers, this one is fun single player for hours on end. With more customizing options, I spent a 1/3 of my play time trickin' out my ride. And the races themselves are set at the perfect difficulty levels...not too easy, not too hard. The controls are user friendly and the graphics are astounding. Do yourself a favor though: turn off the music and through in your music into your stereo.
