Electronic Arts hat es auch tatsächlich geschafft, alle Features der Konsolenversion auf das Modul zu packen. Kleine Probleme gibt es nur bei der Grafik. Die zwar super aus, hat aber erhebliche Probleme, flüssig und fehlerlos zu laufen, Diese Mängel sind zwar nicht Spielspaß tötend, wirken sich aber negativ auf die Wertung aus.

Yet another elaborate current generation console design has been given the greenlight for a handheld version. Need for Speed: Underground is one of those rare titles that not only attempts some technical marvel on the Game Boy Advance hardware, it also features an incredibly playable design that actually feels like the console design. The GBA version defintely has more pros than cons in its production, only really lacking in the features department. But this element definitely shouldn't keep you from giving this fast 'n furious racer a spin on the handheld.

NFSU is definitely a game to consider. My suggestion: hold off on a purchase until NFSU 2 for the GBA is released next month.

Street racing is very different from and, in many ways, more exciting than traditional automobile racing. Competitions take place out on the regular streets and freeways of the city, as opposed to the relatively safe confines of a closed professional course. Instead of cups and medals, prize winnings are paid out in cash, which many participants use to trick out their cars with fancy paint jobs and slick body kits--even when performance upgrades, such as turbo kits and exhaust systems, make the most sense. In street racing, your car's appearance is just as important as winning the race. Need for Speed Underground brings this fast and furious world of street racing on to the Game Boy Advance with mostly positive results. Apart from the graphics, everything from the console versions of the game has made it on to the GBA cartridge.

In Need for Speed: Underground habt ihr die Möglichkeit, die Reifen quietschen zu lassen. Diverse Spielmodi, viele Tuningmöglichkeiten, zahlreiche Boliden, abwechslungsreiche Strecken und cooler Hip-Hop-Sound sorgen für viel Rennspielspaß. Wer bis zu drei Freunde zur Hand hat, kann sich auch rasante Mehrspieler-Duelle liefern. Einziger Wermutstropfen ist die zwar flüssige, aber mitunter pixelige Grafik, die oftmals die Orientierung erschwert. Hat man sich daran gewöhnt, steht einem ungetrübten Rennspielvergnügen aber nichts mehr im Weg.

Je sais bien qu'il en faut pour tout le monde mais j'ai du mal à croire que vous prendrez réellement du plaisir avec ce NFSU limité, répétitif et vite ennuyeux. Cependant, si vous êtes un fondu du genre, vous pourrez peut-être trouver votre bonheur le temps de quelques parties entre amis mais sorti de là, comme c'est lassant !
Need for Speed: Underground är bilspelet som helt och hållet bygger på ett modernt visuellt uttryck och en hård attityd. Den hårda attityden har man i viss mån lyckats överföra till det bärbara formatet - det här torde vara det första Game Boy Advance-spelet med hip hop-musik. Då är det värre ställt med det visuella. Det är omöjligt att på den relativt klena Game Boy Advance återskapa de regnvåta, neonupplysta vägarna som vi njutit av i spelets förlagor på PlayStation2, Xbox och Gamecuve. Och eftersom själva racingen i sig är relativt underordnad den grafiska stilen i det här spelet så blir man kvar med en högst oimponerande titel.
