Editors' Review

Download.com Staff Feb 27, 2009
While most fans with the need for speed will have moved on to the second version of this popular game, this demo still has a bit of gas left in it. Need For Speed Underground puts you behind the wheel of a slick Nissan cruising the gritty streets and challenging other gear heads to race to earn cash. There are plenty of fins and decals to keep any car enthusiast thrilled, and at least 10 different street environments to choose from. Although it may be illegal when you're behind a real wheel, do wear some headphones or hit the mute button quick before you hit the accelerator pedal. The soundtrack--a short selection of popular electronic songs--plays an endless loop that either will get you pumped up or pissed off. Overall, this is a classic racing game that is both challenging and exciting.

Enter the world of urban street racing and high performance tuner cars with the latest title in the hit Need for Speed series. Take on today s most popular tuner cars from Mitsubishi, Subaru, Toyota, and many more, building the ultimate street machine by earning cash to pay for custom body kits and a host of licensed performance mods.

A number of diverse events set in gritty, nighttime environments make up the heart of street competition. Players become complete street racers by perfecting skills in each event by nailing the perfect shift in drag racing and by putting their street cred on the line, racing through the city streets at all hours of the night.
