The point at which Need For Speed spiraled downhill.

Indeed although I did enjoy driving a stock Dodge Neon (i'm wierd I know) but hated the street racing thing. if they had continued the hot pursuit vibe through this it could have been 10x better.

Not really, even though i'm a classic NFS fan i have 2 say that underground was the better if-not the best NFS games of one of NFS franchises. In my opinion i say NFS went downhill after Underground 2 or Most Wanted.

Carbon Was Still Good, It Was Pro Street (Which I Do Find A Good Game) That Killed NFS Because Rules And On Track Racing Isn't What Anyone Wanted, We All Love Wieving Through Traffic With Police On Our Tails. They Took That Away In NFSPS And Thats When It Spiraled Downhill

Underground was good, because it was a different point of view of the NFS saga, Underground 2...well, i can understand it, Underground was an sucess and they made a second title.

Most Wanted started to be a litte boring (but it´s the best NFS-Tuning game in my opinion), Carbon was too much, Pro Street was an experiment, and with Undercover, they finally ruined the whole thing.

I still long for the glory days of Hot Pursuit, which isn't going to happen if they are going into the track racing simulation genre.

Luckily subsequent NFS games have reaquired actual sports cars, rather than the (mainly) commuters seen here, but the "riceboy" element has remained...every subsequent game has had that moment where it dawns on you that you're putting vinyl graphics, 20" wheels, and a bodykit on an Aston Martin.

This game was alright. Not as good as the sequel, although that doesn't mean Underground 2 was great. It was more about illegal races with imports. I prefer a GTO over a Scion any day.

First Good NFS Game - If you don't like go play pile of crap old shit NFS1 in your crappy arcade

NFS HP and it's derivants suck.
Underground is great, U2 is excelent, MW is a bit boring, Carbon is great, Pro Street is too boring, Undercover is good and Shift is excelent and i love it. Bye

I hope you feel better after claiming that the best NFS games ever made are rubbish and the tuning saga is the best...honestly, i can´t take you seriously.

But you´re alone. At least, you could have some respect for everybody else´s taste. All that hatred isn´t welcome here.

Old games are a bit boring, i edited my comment but still think it's too offensive. NFS HP2 is not that bad, at least is fun, but i like freedom! In NFSU and U2 you don't have the cop trying to catch you, it's cool but then it gets boring. In Carbon the cops allways seem to be the same and same again. You need to be escaping... But in Undercover you can be the cop. I respect everybody's taste, but i need to have my own tastes. Im not alone, look at Takumi, he says started like NFS since Underground. My Undercover doesn't work anymore, i got pissed off because the roads disappear and you need to stop and wait for the road to load or the game breaks.

For lovers of supercars i recommend NFS HP. And now study time so wait for my replies. Oh, and no replies like "Don't read her's comments" becaus if people doesn't interest my comments then they don't read them.

Yup, it was ported into Arcade, but EA didn`t made it as separate game.

People shouldn't complain about NFS Underground not being "a real need for speed game". Just look at the box art, "need for speed" is in tiny letters and UNDERGROUND is the real deal. It's supposed to be like they are taking a break from the old exotic cars and landscapes thing to make a game about tuner culture and city races.
Then they tried to tie both worlds up with MW and Carbon (and I respect this one because the crew races were a cool new idea and the tuning was really extensive but not mandatory).
But after that, EA just didn't have a clue on what to do with the series so they just tried to start making a new NFS each year, with short single player campaigns and no replay value. This resulted in them cutting off features like quick race, cockpit view and replays, probably in order to release the game faster and make people finish it quickly and want to buy the next one.

They either don't know you can't make a legendary game in just one year, or they just don't want to and don't care...

Money, you know. Today's developers won't care whether they made good game or not as long as they get their $$$s they deserve. Same goes to Japanese game developers.

This game is brilliant. I completed every race (hardest one is a "Straight Up" or #63) with a Peugeot 206 on hard level. The other races are piece of cake. Just focus on the game, drive and change gears carefully, don't hurry, and you will win.

You could have AT LEAST left these intro cars. They are models not used in the game. I think your all giving a lot too much hate on intro cars.

Added Eddie's Skyline from quick race. I don't know if it will get accepted because I gave NFS Wiki a taste of their own medicine and stole one of their pictures. It's the thought that counts. :D

Okay, Should we classify every single track as a different one under the Tracks section? There's about 40-ish different ones. And technically Olympic City is only the setting of normal races. :p

sajmon14 PL (234)

2016-05-06 13:24

no, here its listed properly as one city. We should just list the main tracks(locations), not every single race

It's hard to emulate a PS2 game properly so it's better to get someone who has the PC version and he will get the better pics.

Oh god the game runs at about 15-20 FPS during races. X|

Rear shots are FINALLY on all stock cars in the game.

Rear shots for traffic are coming in a few.

I also added the Mystikal Celica, Petey Pablo Eclipse, and Lostprophets R34.

The other bonus cars I normally wouldn't play through the game just to get, But I'm going to LP this on my YouTube, so they'll be added... eventually knowing how I work.

I also want an opinion on if the RX-7 and Impreza shots should be replaced. They use aftermarket wheels.

The Nissan Skyline "lost prophets" is mispelled ;) Did NFSU2 really miss the Skyline. (I have both on PC)
Also in these "street-racing" iteration, I remember changing speeds was mandatory and having traffic was a real challenge one had to take account of. Not the today's useless "figurant" traffic
