Hello there, hope you all are doing fine.
Today, it’s all about gaming, and I’ve selected one of my favorite games ever and still play it till this day.
During 2004, EA released one of the most epic racing game ever made: the almighty Need For Speed Underground 2.
After the events of the first Underground, you arrive at Bayview, one of the most iconic Need For Speed cities, and find a Rachel’s 350z waiting for you outside the airport. You’re asked to complete some random challenges in order to get the hang of controlling the driving. Then you meet Rachel Teller, played by Brooke Burke, after a brief discussion and picking up your own brand new car from the lot, you get to race through the city during some circuit, drift, street x, drag, sprint and some underground tournament getting notorious and wining cash$$$ to customize your rides at the unlocked custom shops around the city.
Speaking of customization, the very most funny part of the game, you can pick up bumpers, side skirt, rimes, wings, change the set of lights, change the hood, add some roof scopes, neon, some advanced audio system, spinners and you could even add suicide doors (*q*) . You could also tune up the performance of the car: we’re talking about some ECU, brand new transmission, some direct port shot of Nitro (*o*), bigger turbos and so on… Truly, never had the chance to play a game with such level of customization. (still haven’t played the last Need For Speed 😦 )
Oh wait, a game about cars and still didn’t talked about those sweets on four wheels: there is a large set of cars to play and customize:
- Some JDM (Evo9, AE86, Civic, GT-R34, Supra, Eclipse…;
- A couple of Muscles: a Mustang and a Pontiac GTO (good never been a fan of those big Muscles);
- 3 SUV: a H2, an Escalade and a Navigator the useless cars you use once and then forget about their existence;
- And 3 European cars: 206, A3, MK4.
While racing, you can listen to beautiful tracks selected by EA;
There’s the games intro
Piece of advice: while customizing cars, NEVER GO FULL RICER it’s baaaaaaad!
