Need For Speed: Underground is the seventh game in the long running Need For Speed racing series. Underground revolves around illegal nighttime streetracing with heavily modified import cars and has been greatly influenced by the movie "The Fast And The Furious" and its sequel.. Players get the chance to build their own racing machine almost from ground up, with hundreds or real licensed parts and lots of licensed cars, including the Mazda RX-7 and the Nissan Skyline GT-R. The game also features over 100 single player races and a hiphop/hardrock soundtrack including artists such as Mystikal, Rob Zombie and The Crystal Method.

The Press Says
There are currently no topics for this game.
EA astonished the entire gaming world by supporting online gameplay in the Windows version of Need for Speed Underground
NFSU, but leaving out LAN play. Often, games only get LAN play because developers don't want to deal with latency issues and different networks. EA on the other hand, developed a "Cross Platform Online Gaming" feature, which allows gamers to compete online on different platforms (e.g. PS2 vs PC), but there's a catch: no LAN play on PC. This means that players have go through an external network connection just to join a server sitting right next to them.
Soon after the game's release,a tool making LAN play possible appeared on various fansites. It also features an option to play over the Internet without using EA's server.
As of 13th January 2006, The EA servers for the game are no longer in service. Of course this does not effect peer-to-peer games. The PS2 servers were closed on 1st November 2007.
