    If you can get by the issues caused by the limitations of the GBA, Need For Speed: Underground offers a solid racing experience for any GBA owner and features more replayability than its direct competition, thanks to the highly customisable cars and varied races.

    The absense of a course map compounds the problem. [Mar 2004, p.120]

    Contains an impressive amount of depth, although graphical issues are severe enough to subtract from the overall experience. [Summer 2004, p.37]

Only it's musics are great, the others are nearly crap. Not bad (but not good) graphics, no physics, **** cars, bad controlling, almost always the same "tracks", no cops (why is it underground, hmm?), very irritating traffic, bad and cheating AI. This is the NFS:U. Full Review »

    This game started out great but gradually got repetitive and slightly annoying. The graphics are good but sometimes you cant see the cars This game started out great but gradually got repetitive and slightly annoying. The graphics are good but sometimes you cant see the cars ahead of you and that really does suck when your winning a race and you hit something you couldnt see until the last minute. Music is the one of the best for GBA but the screaching of the tires sucks. Its an okay game cuz of customizations, get it used. Full Review »
