Need For Speed Underground

i just played the full version.

sigh...no dashboard again. WHY???? its truly a fun element to the game. i know there's bumper cam, but i wanna see the dashboard! gives me a good feeling of position.

however, so far, the underground career mode is very fun..

This should be in the "games" section...

But for some reason, they've dropped the "dashboard" view since "Hot Pursuit 2", except for a bonus Ferrari race in Championship mode when you race in the 550 Barchetta and F50...Dunno why, but I don't mind it, although it would still be cool to have the mode back...

And I wanna play that game, but havn't yet...

lol to think about it, nfs porsche was the only version based on realism. it kind of failed though, because 250mph there feels like 70 mph in underground. My favorite is still nfs 3. aww those were the days. you can honk ur opponents making them crash, lol. oh, and who can forget empire city, or the clk-gtr

Developers can get the cars bodies to look so nice and shinny but spend ZERO attention on a cars interior. Inner beauty is over half of the car. People spend more time in their cars than outside looking at them. I want dashboard with authentic gauges and steering wheel.

And if its the customizable type of game than customizable gauges and a customizable wheel.

Hood view in Rally Sport Challenge was very nice. but no driver seat view.

It looks like utter crap, all the cars look like there out of Two Dumn Two Stupid... ..or was it Fast and Furious?

Anyway, I dont like cars that have more spoilers than the owners braincells.

I don't care for the amount of rice in the game; If the gameplay is good, I'm in...

Besides, Tokyo Extreme Racer 3 (Or 01, depending on what devolper you're looking at) > Need For Speed: Underground...

If it doesn't at least have a Corvette in it, then they can keep that shit. I'm not going to play a street racing game that doesn't have some good American steel in it.

Even though the game is new on the PC, I'm sure in due time that one of the big download sites or fan sites will feature newer cars, muscle cars, and a dashboard mod. Usually the dashboard mod replaces bumper cam in some weird fashion and there you have it...inner beauty!

But, I only played the demo of it, wasn't too impressed, I wanted to run over the pedestrians. I think I'll keep Midnight Club 2.

I played the demo of it and I dont like the 2fast2furious camera angle when you jump an opening bridge. I dont like the fact that EA stills ideas from movies and messes up the game play by suddenly changing camera angles to show you something "Cinematic" and screwing up your racing flow.

I also severly dislike ea's arcadey sytle of game play in ALL of their games. Which is why i buy sega titles (sega is also more xbox friendly)

actually you can disable the thrill cam. I liked all the need for speeds, up until porsche unleashed (maybe not high stakes). EA has always put good background music into the NFS series suitable for racing. The only two complaints i have about underground is the fact that there's no dashboard view, and the other is the lack of creativity and variety of maps. I know its UNDERGROUND STREET RACING, but COME ON, 2fast2furious had day racing! sheesh

All of the underground street races I've been to have taken place at night. Cars look cooler at night cuz you cant notice the nasty ass paint jobs or dings from when they hit other cars . Plus the neon lights dont work to well in the day.

I like the game a lot, but I dont care for the rice.
I just slap it on till I get high enough and then take all the CRAP off, to leave a nice looking car in the end, and a fast one at that.
Well off to play this game. heh.

Yeah, when you're in the "Underground" and racing like that, you're not gonna have the money for a Ferrari. No one is really gonna mod those cars.

Displacement is the size of an engine in cubic inches/centimeters or liters, measured by the bore and stroke per cylinder...

But as for this misspell, I dunno...Game developer stupid in the spelling department during the making of the game?

I started a NFS thread? Wow. Well rented it for xbox. Was very disapointed. Not my type of racer in most all aspects but my friend loves it. He likes the miata and the skyline.

Had frame rate issues on the XBox. Probably has the same issues on the GC and PS2 i dunno.

A car's a car...It has performance potential, you can mod it, whether or not you're rich or poor, Civic Si or 360 Modena Stradale...

If you're poor, why do you own a car? How are you gonna pay for insurance, get gas, pay off bills, etc.? Why don't you get a job then?

If you're poor, ask those questions before you put mods on your car...

What's your ethnicity? You might want to consult the Japanese D1 about your new drift record and tell them the Japanese aren't the only ones that can drift good...

Oh wait...You're playing a game...

They have Acuras in Japan too. Its just a different image of Honda. Dodge Neons are known for their customizeablitity. I just wish that they were better represented in games. Along with dependability/reliability of a car and after market accessories

As far as my prior knowledge goes, Acura is a North America-only division, as the up-scale luxury brand of Honda. But whatever's an Acura here is still a Honda in Japan, and everywhere else.
