  1. A fantastic driving game. It has style, variety and a solid ride with hours of action driving like a freaking maniac on the streets of Bay View.

    An impressive, and more importantly, fun game that overcomes its faults with depth, breadth, and variety.
  3. 90
    The world is elaborate, the sense of speed is dizzying, and the customization could cost you a job or a girlfriend. But you'll still have Brooke to keep you company.
  4. For an arcade game, it's even surprisingly playable with a steering wheel, with near misses causing no small amount of amateurish flinching. If you can't afford to attach largely pointless gadgets to your otherwise moribund vehicle, this is the next best thing. [PC Zone]
  5. The courses in this game are just as much the stars as the cars. The dazzling downtown locations are massive, dominated by skyscrapers whose light bathes the streets in a radiant glow.
  6. 80
    Naturally the pimping side of things have been expanded to a maddeningly complete degree.
  7. Not as much much fun as EA's other recent speed merchant "Burnout 3," but if getting under the hood to tinker with motors is your thing, this could be the one for you.

    Great game, had everything a gamer would expect and more.

Had hundreds of hours on my crappy Celeron M laptop with this game at 20 FPS back in the day. I personally don't really fancy the police chases, so this game was perfect for me. Expand

    Seriously, I don't understand how some people think. How can you compare NFSU2 with any other so called ''racing Seriously, I don't understand how some people think. How can you compare NFSU2 with any other so called ''racing game''. First I dont't even think Burnout should be called a racing game, cause all the game is about is crash you car to the fullest. This game otherwise is terribly good game, just the feel of driving illegal street racing makes you play it more. Good music, damn good graphics for a game made 2004 and the best underground racing game to this day. Prostreet and Carbon was a disapointment but this classic brings you hope back that EA will ''probably'' make an new and better NFS than ever. Expand

    Overall an incredibly solid title. The combination of the number and types of races, mixed with the number and types of cars makes for one Overall an incredibly solid title. The combination of the number and types of races, mixed with the number and types of cars makes for one very replayable game. The races are challenging, the rewards aer generally good, and there's no feeling like unlocking your favorite car, then driving it out onto the track. Expand

    I'm disappointed that you can't choose the difficulty level anymore before each race. Because the drag races can be realy difficult I'm disappointed that you can't choose the difficulty level anymore before each race. Because the drag races can be realy difficult and the cirquit races too easy. The sound and the graphics are very good and I like this game a lot better then part one. Expand
