    well maybe you can finish it in one night, but the thing about racing games, I think, is that every time you race its a little different. I think so, but meh.

    I got through about race 60-something in a good 10-12 straight hours of playing, but by that time I was beat and couldn't take anymore... I finished it in about 3-4 days because I was kinda burned out after playing it so much the first night... I do, however, agree that all the tracks look too much the same.. I also have an issue with the fact that brand names make jack for difference in the game; they only unlock stickers. Whoopity-doo. Also, performance mods come in "kits", which I'm not a big fan of either. It's a great game overall, but it could have been better. I don't think it quite lived up to the hype, to be perfectly honest.

    i have Need for speed underground and i think it is a gret game. Perfect for people who like to tweak up their cars like what i hope to do when i finally get one :). The graphics are pretty good except its just unfortunate for the graphics on the menu screen, because of the low screen resolution. But all in all, it is a really good game in my opinion. When actually racing, the graphics are great and i like the water effects from the puddles :D

    There is just one big downside to the game though i thought. Its unfortunate that they didnt have an inside view of the car with the steering wheel and stuff whilst racing. I thought that would be an amazing touch to the game, playing as if your inside your modded car :)

    Theres my say about the game :p

    Alex :cool:

    Yea, I was going to say something about that. All of the older Need For Speed's had an inside view of the car, this one dosent. That is pretty stupid, I liked that fact of being inside that car!

    We love Need For Speed Underground it is a fantasic game my only complaint is they did not use anykind of anti-cheating software for the on-line mode which sucks just too easy to use the 200mph reset and crap from the trainers. But other than that its great !!!


    ps: One night no way I don't think so... :)

    They've had something like 3 patches out now... however, EA never seems to provide releaes notes with their patches so nobody has any clue what their patches fix... I've noticed the same thing with Madden 2004... I think that's pretty lame :(
