Need for Speed 2: Worthwhile

Strengths: Bottom line: simply fun to play; sound effects; extensive car customization; graphics

Weakness: Load time; limited to night driving; unrealistic damage from accidents.

I base many of my ratings on "value." In this case, I paid $5 for this game and, with this in mind, judge it to be in the 4 out of 5 stars range. However, clearly not a $20+ game. This explains my "worthwhile" comment in the title. Bottom line: great game for the right price. If you're looking for an arcade racing game, give it a try. If you want a more traditional racing game, look at the NASCAR...

This is a great game for those...

Strengths: Great gameplay. Easy mode is actually easy. Plays on low end video cards (ie, gforce 4 mx 440.)

Weakness: None

This is a great game for those that like Fast and the Furious style movies. It mostly focus's on normal compact cars (civic, focus, wrx, etc) although it does have some decent cars (mustang etc.) I'm not sure why they refuse to honor the Camaro by including it, perhaps GM refuses to let them?

Need for Speed Underground 2 - Best Game Ever

Strengths: Excellent graphics, awesome gameplay, nice storyline, long length of gameplay in career mode, freedom in gameplay.

Weakness: Needs a powerful computer to run, very compute intensive. Online gameplay could be better.

This game is possibly the best game ever. I love it. The gameplay is awesome, there is so much freedom in how you can customize the cars, and there are even gameplay modes where you can just drive around and not have to do anything and have complete freedom of the map.

Awesome Game

Strengths: Great maps, awesome cars, good multiplayer, works great with controllers such as the logitech rumblepad series.

Weakness: One feature that could be added would be to allow the use fo the logitech rumblepad as a mouse.

I love this game, career mode is good and you can really make your car look awesome with all the money you earn from races to buy new parts for your car! I highly recommed this game if you like racing games. Runs very smoothly on my system (Athlon 3400+, 1gb ram, Radeon 9500 Pro)
