The Need For Speed series
The first Need For Speed game was released in 1995, but it had its real success with the second game released in 1997. After these two games there were several others, which served to spread and spread the series among the players.

A 350Z ready to obey you
That's right, the car you can use in this game show is a beautiful Nissan 350Z. The car already comes tuned (modified visually) and is equipped with a super engine so you leave the enemies eating dust. It should be noted that due to the restrictions imposed in this version, there is no way you can change anything in the visual or equip the car with new components.
Explore the city
The great novelty that was implemented in this game was the mode of exploration. Also known as Free Roaming, this mode allows the player to use his car to go anywhere in the city, make runs with cars that are circling nearby, and go directly to the places where the races start.
In the Need For Speed Underground 2 demo you find few cars to challenge, and only two types of racing: circuit and drift. In circuit mode you face three opponents and can use the nitro of your car to. While in drift mode you should use your car's brake to make multiple skidding and accumulating points.
Good quality graphics
Need For Speed Underground 2 is a game that requires a reasonable video card and a good amount of memory. A modest video card is very important to get the best graphics, because the game shows effects that had not before in games of the same genre.
The tracks, cars, reflexes, rain effects, light effects, shadows, distortion presented while speeding up your car, and many other details cause the game graphic to impress players fascinated by speed.
During the few tracks offered in the Need For Speed Underground 2 demo, you can only use the Nissan 350Z. However, so you do not mind the green look of the car, you can go to the car shop and choose three versions (Gray, Red and Yellow) of the powerful. Already in the original game there are several cars of brands like: Honda, Mazda, Toyota and many others.
Music and gameplay
The songs in this game have been very well chosen - some of them even created especially for the game - and are perfect for engaging the player in the most amazing races. A good gameplay complete Need For Speed Underground 2 and makes the player easily adapt to the game. In addition to the various details already mentioned, the game still has a crowd during the races which vibrates when the game starts.
Our opinion about Need For Speed Underground 2
Bringing good graphics, a great soundtrack, and a super car, the Need For Speed Underground 2 demo raises in very little detail and hits almost everything. Obviously the restrictions imposed in this version are understandable if observed the purposes of a demonstration, and as the game was made for disclosure only there is no way to complain about missing details.
Need For Speed Underground 2 was one of the best racing games ever released. Despite the long time spent and several other games released that surpass the game in graphic and details, there is no forgetting one of the primordial games of the genre. It is rare to find anyone who cuts the tracks and the poisoned cars and has not played this game, but if you are one of the few who did not like this game, it is worth a test with this demonstration.
