Design the car of your dreams before hitting the city streets to race other drivers.

Need For Speed Underground isn't the typical racing game. Take to the streets in Olympic City, completing challenges and racing against other drivers who have cars with a design similar to yours. The game begins in your garage where you will look through numerous vehicles that include Honda, Toyota and Nissan.

In order to earn money to upgrade your car, you have to complete challenges, such as drag racing or drifting. When you have enough money saved, you can add components to your car to make it faster or to make it handle better on curves. There are three new ways to play that have been added to this version. You are now able to drag race against another car to see who can get the best time, drift around curves, or sprint from one location to another before you run out of time.

Some of the aspects of the game include the realistic appearances of the cars and some of the most popular modifications that drivers can make to a vehicle, such as spoilers, tint for the windows and new rims. There are also several options when it comes to upgrading the engine of the car so that it's faster. New races have been added to Need For Speed Underground, and you'll also meet new opponents. As you increase your reputation among other drivers, you have the opportunity to earn more money, which allows you to make your car better. Once you conquer certain courses, you unlock more quests to complete, which offer higher rewards.
