Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 info:-
Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 is an arcade-style racing game that improves upon the original with more race modes and competitive drifting. NFSU2 has big shoes to fill, and it does so admirably, with vastly improved graphics, new gameplay modes, and an improved interface.
The demo also pushes beyond the scope of the original, offering a “free roam” mode to explore the cityscape and challenge competitors at will, two types of “quick races” on two different tracks, and the ability to race other drivers online.
The graphics are the most obvious improvement. We only can describe them as truly awesome, even on lower settings. Lights on the bridge sparkle in the night sky and mannequins in store windows catch your eye as you blaze past.
Little things, such as pumping your hydraulics and bouncing down the avenue, make the experience even more fun. Racing is arcade style (it’s awfully hard to destroy your car) and easy to learn, yet power drifting is an acquired skill that keeps the learning curve gradual, but long.
The only knocks on this top-notch driving game are the ubiquitous product placements, high system requirements, Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 and large download size. Considering the depth and quality of Need for Speed Underground 2, though, most gamers can forgive those details.
Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 Gameplay:-
In addition to the racing modes included in the previous Underground game (Circuit, Sprint, Drag and Drift races), four new variations of races have been provided in Underground 2. One racing mode was dropped, this being the Knockout competitions. Still, a Lap Knockout option is available when racing Circuit in non-career races.
Underground 2 is unique among the games in the Need for Speed series in that it requires a player to drive to a certain place in the city in order to begin a race (other games allow the player to select a race from a menu). Most races are marked on the in-game radar, but some are hidden and the player must search for them, should he/she decide to play them.
Once any stage is completed, all of the race location icons for that stage are removed from the map and a new set of race location icons are placed on the map for the next stage. While in the garage, there is a “World Map” feature that includes a menu of races for all prior stages, Need for Speed Underground 2 2004.
with the menu noting which races have been completed or not completed, and the player can select any race from any prior stage to run from the menu. After completing stage 2 through stage 5 (stage 5 is the last stage of career mode), there will always be 8 sponsor races that will not be.
completed, since a player has to choose a single sponsor per stage and can only run 3 out of 11 unique sponsor races, leaving 8 sponsor races not completed at the end of each stage. These can only be run using World Map.
Due to a game bug (at least on the PC version), if running a non completed race from the World Map, no credit (cash or rep) will be awarded unless the player uses restart at least one time during the race. Please See More Information……….
Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 Plot:-
The story begins after the player has beaten Eddie’s street gang – “The Eastsiders” in Olympic City. The player is now revered as the best street racer in Olympic City. The player is called after the final race by a bald man with an “invitation” to join his team.
The mysterious bald man on the video screen tells the player that he “is not taking no for an answer.” In defiance, the player abruptly hangs up the call. One night, the player is called by his friend, Samantha whilst en route to a celebration party, who informs him that the party is really kicking and the people want to see him at the party.
An unidentified black Hummer H2 waits in a dark underpass for the player. The call is suddenly interrupted by a dazzling light from the Hummer’s headlights, which blind the player while instantaneously ramming his blue Nissan Skyline GT-R in an effort to wreck it.
A man with a scythe tattoo on his hand rolls down his window following the collision and calls to confirm, Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 that he “took care of a problem.”
Six months later the player boards a plane to Bayview with a good luck note from Samantha that also refers to her friend, Rachel Teller (Brooke Burke) as well as a car key. The player arrives in Bayview to find Rachel’s green Nissan 350Z waiting for him outside in airport terminal parking.
The player competes in a few races using Rachel’s car before handing it over to her. The player buys his first car using the money provided by the insurance on his totaled Skyline.
The player soon gains fame by winning races and encounters Caleb Reece (David Palffy), who is the leader of “The Wraiths” and turns out to be the driver of the mysterious Hummer that wrecked the player’s car in the first place.
Need for Speed Underground 2 2004 Customization:-
Customization in Underground 2 was significantly expanded compared to previous iterations from the series. Visual customization has expanded with the ability to customize the car’s front and rear bumpers, side skirts, spoiler, hood, exhaust tips, doors, roof scoop, wheels (including the ability to put on spinners), headlights and taillights, side mirrors and paint.
Vinyl and decals can also be added, as well as car stereos (speakers, amplifiers & subwoofers), hydraulics, nitrous bottles and under glow neon. Most visual modifications to the car have no actual effect on vehicle performance.
The sound systems, for example, could be put in the trunk of cars but served no purpose other than visual cues. Hydraulics can be used in combination with nitrous at the start of a race which can cause a car to do a wheelie and for some cars to get a better launch.
