Electronic Arts took its inspiration from street racing films like, for example, the second title in the “The Fast and the Furious” series, 2 Fast 2 Furious (2F2F), that was launched the same year as the video game. Thus, in Need for Speed Underground they decided to present a plot to accompany the illegal races.
On the other hand, to take part in the races it offers the player a full array of high range cars, with the added possibility to tune them up in the garage. What's more, the changes won't only affect the car's aesthetic, they will also have direct influence on its performance.
If you need to quench your thirst of driving and living the passion behind car tuning, download Need for Speed Underground.
