All in all, I'd say this is a pretty good game.

I played NFSU1 and the demo version of NFSU2 when it came out and now I've been playing the real version and I have a couple of points to make: First off, I think NFS1 had better graphics on the whole, they were a lot smoother (I've been running both games at maximum graphical settings and I had to readjust NFSU2 down a little bit in order to get a decent frame rate) - now don't get me wrong, NFS2's graphics are beautiful, but when it really comes down to it, NFS1's are way smoother - a couple of examples: the speedometers in regular play and in drag seemed to have been an afterthought when the game was made - too jittery and very hard to judge when shifting, especially in drag. The road surface is another - extremely pixleated - looks like your looking at walls in the original Doom = ) Is it just me, but when game developers try to make the graphics better for a sequal, they manage to screw them up somehow, there are some exceptional sequals that the graphics got major overhauls and they look great, just not here : ( And moving to a stroryboard type story to move the action along, I dunno, I was hoping to see Brook in all her stunning glory, not some 2D drawn image! On to brighter things! The sound is truly amazing! I was immediatly taken by the roar of the Pontiac GTO! The sounds are awsome! Did I mention the sounds are GREAT!! The free roaming mode is also well done. It truly gives you the chance to really feel like you're in the actual game inside a make believe city and not just selecting from a list of a series of races and then beating the pants off someone! Congrats to the developers for making my gaming experience immersive : ) Oh, yeah, and the sounds are SUPERB! lol BTW, incase anyone is wondering about my computer specs in relation to my rants on the graphics, see below - as you will see, I have a pretty powerful system: Intel P4 3.0Ghz Prescott Abit IC7-G Mobo 1024MB Corsair 3200 TwinX Hyper Pro Memory CL2 BFG 6800GT OC 256MB 120GB Seagate SATA 7200 8MB SB Audigy 2 xGamer Samsung SyncMaster 712T 17" LCD
