Need for Speed Underground 2 is a rare example of an EA update which offers a lot more then its predecessor. The new race types are a lot of fun, and while the free-roaming 'sandbox' approach might be an unwelcome change for some it's not too painful to get adjusted to. Underneath all the posing and strutting, (which I found to become quickly intoxicating) there's a very competent and enjoyable racer eager to be recognised and respected. Online again online play is hampered by EA's cumbersome proprietary system and again, unless you have top quality cars in the single player career there's not much enjoyment to be had. Even so this pure arcade racer will provide the kind of thrills and spills that fans of the genre are looking for.You can read the full review here and don't forget to view our game profile.
