Need For SpeeD

Home  \  Asian Imports  \  Need For SpeeD

Im a video game fanatic, I have an x-box. I am currently on house arrest so I play a lot. For all the need for speed underground fans, the makers have just released info on need for speed underground 2! click here (http://gamesdomain.yahoo.com/preview/28568) for more info. You guys even like the 1rst onE. :ticking: The only thing I didnt like was the selection of cars> There were allright cars but they needed more. They made a drifting game with no S14 .wtf. And no 3000gt or 300zx, but supra and skyline...... They swear like its the fastest car in the world, its the last car you get, The rx-7 smokes the skyline and you get that waaay before a skyline but w/e . I'd like to see a sh!t load of cars in the second one like 3kGT, Z32, r33, r32, civic hatch (new and old), G2 teggy :mrgreen: , trueno┬┐, any other year supra, mr2.... you get the picture pretty much any car thats worth modding. agree?
:ticking:

Yeah, i liked the first game. But they made the game feel too "street-racy." Completely trashed the reality of racing. And soo much ricing in that game. And alot of it was inaccurate, a skyline drifting?!!?!?! But the second ones looks more promising, the Evo is finally included, and its not just included looks like it's their flagship car for this game. And the drifting is way more accurate now. Instead of a parking lot its in actual courses.

Ya the 1rst one was too ricey, and how come when you get weight reduction its 3 different choices of the same damn thing.... sparco?? LoL, the first one was a bit rushed, not every street race is riced out with altezza's and 5ft. whale tales, All opponents in the game had vinyls n sheet, there was no sleepers. And the graphics werent that great. I sure hope that 2 is better. better as in more complex.

the music ownd though. i only got amused by the game by modifying the looks of the cars and seeing how bad i could flip the car in the drag races.

i call Underground NFS's way of selling out 2F2F style. ive played ALL of their games and let me tell ya, Underground just isnt their style. its so much different from all their other games that it really ruined my respect for those guys. the game itself is fun for a while, but yea, it lacks realism.

i had read about the second version a few months back, and i hope those guys get their act together.

but i sure hope they bring even better music cuz the first one did a great job at amusing me :D

the only thing i liked about the game was the drifting... apart from that, it wassnt to much of a hoot... ITS SO RICY!!!

Supposedly in 2 you dont have to do races that you dont want to like stupid ass elimination races, so you just go around and drag the whole game, or drift. I thought there should be drift racing unstead of drifting in a parking lot by yourself. :laughing:

I bought NFSU and i enjoyed it for awhile, till, after i beat the game twice. it's effects are good, but im proly not gonna buy NFSU 2, im buyin SRS (street racin syndicate) it was a turnoff, when i heard that it was gonna be more arcade-like, instead of real :ohcrap: like; in an interview with the developer or somethin like dat :screwy: he said that if u drive and get style points during the race, u get more NOS during the race. What is that kawazy bastard thinkning??? :tard: Im savin and gettin SRS cuz NFSU 2 doesn't look like the game i wanted

posted by  allroundcarguy2

isnt SRS that new game made by the same guys from tokyo extreme racer?

I rented it and i didnt think much of it (Dodge neon :screwy: ) i think GT4 is going to be a lot better :thumbs:

Ummm, yeah, i have a god damn GameCube now, so im screwd in the racing sim dept. :banghead: All that's left is Mario and his bro Luigi, and there's no way in hell im springing for that crap :smoke:

im so glad i have a ps2 and an xbox to keep myself entertained :D

I'm, obviously, a HUGE gaming fan (look at my name). But I never picked up NFSU, due to the fact that it's an EA game. And, up until now, i refuses to support them (now i do because they support Xbox Live). I'm now looking for NFSU for cheap, like $25, but the car selection sucks. There needs to be a game with 4th and 5th generation preludes!!!!!!!!! No love for the prelude, but Civic is in every game, i don't get it! Anyways, i can tell you anything about any street racing game coming out for Xbox, just ask. As for what i'm personally looking forward to:

-Forza Motorsport - Build up a car and race it, but very realistic.
-Street Racing Syndicate - looks amazing.
-NFSU 2 - heard it might include a prelude.
-Midnight Club 3 - not much has surfaced, but it sounds good from the little info that's out.
-Fast and Furious - Not to sure about this one, but i'm keeping my eye on it.

NFSU was way too easy. Especially the drifting option. I went online for drifting, and i owned everyone. Apparently everyone was trying it only with the E-brake. I beat NFSU in one day, got all the wide-body kits for my skyline as well :D I played it again, and beat it with my Civic, hahahahah.

I don't mean to insult your intelligence, but if u take a look at July (maybe) Motor Trend, u'll see a pic of a RWD 4 door Skyline drifting. :screwy: I juss wanna point that out cuz, u said it was inaccurate. Sure, silvias and toyota AE86s look more at home than a skyline, in my :2cents: opinion, but, then again, it's what i think. However, i completely agree with you on that "trashed the reality of racing" remark, and also, I never thought any Honda Civic would put a fully modded-out skyline on the trailer, and same with the lancer es. This was :screwy: really screwed up, and seeing a Hyaundai blowing a 350Z off the highway is retarted. My brotha beat the whole thing with a goddamn civic, and beating a supra with a civic, isn't exactly wat i call "racing sim." :banghead:

posted by  allroundcarguy2

about the 4-door skyline, that model does not come with an AWD feature. also, the 2-door version is called the GTS-T which is also just RWD. its true that the r-32's n 34's can be turned into rwd only with taking out a fuse, n the r-33 with removing the front driveshaft, but nowhere in the game u see a feature of "turn off the attesa system". do u? :P

You can always download more cars off the internet if you have the game for PC

daaaam SRS still aint out.... sheesh , any info on SRS?

Try TOCA for Xbox... my friend cant stop talking about the game... its a sim game... so you can blow up trannies (look out 3kgts) and tires and all... and its only $30 :D cant beat that...

wtf is TOCA?

posted by  Inygknok

TOCA - Race Driver 2 from Codemasters.... for PS2 and Xbox

http://www.ebgames.com/ebx/product/241495.asp

posted by  SunDown13X VR4

I played alot of TOCA. This is coming from someone who LOVES racing games. I didn't enjoy it that much. Sure it had realistic damage modeling, real cars, simulated handling etc but it was just no fun when the sense of speed sucked. You never felt like you were going the speed it said you were going (100 MPH feels like 60 or 70 MPH). All the cars feel very "floaty", like they're all the same weight. Graphically the game is a masterpiece. The damage looks amazing and the car models are photo realistic. But there are several flaws, for this certain track you can only use this car or only 2 cars for this class etc. I want to be able to race my Skyline on a rally course, or vice versa with my Rally edition evo. (The rally racing aspect of the game was quite amazing i might add). For $30 bucks, or cheaper if you find it used, TOCA is a great game. It even sports online, just be aware of the flaws it has. It's still a good spin from the bunch of Arcade racers (Project gotham 2 anyone? (which was amazing but an arcade game none-the-less)) out on both XBOX and PS2. My score 7.5/10

As for 'Street Racing Syndicate' You can check out some previews at:

http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/driving/streetracingsyndicate/previews.html

By the way, this game comes out August 31st and it looks amazing. Alot of great and innovative features look like they're gonna make this a stellar game (Racing online for pink slips anyone??? :hi: )

Anyone need to know anything else? I'm your man. Hope this helped yall! :mrgreen:

Yeah, you can turn pretty much any AWD car into a RWD and drift it. I've seen it done to many of STi's.

You people seem to be expecting to much from such a game thats only meant to live up to an expectation of the movies that proceeded it. They will never be 100% realistic, because even if they were people would still bitch. Sure the game is a crazily off key, but its meant to be fun. Not to be 100% accurate, thats why its a video game. If you want realism get your ass behind the wheel of a real car, don't expect it from a game meant to be fun.

I don't see anything wrong with the game, its ricey, but thats the point. Its meant to be as flashy as possible. The car selection could be bigger, but they give you what they give you. The real racing game coming out is the the Gran Turismo. Screw underground, I'll be at BestBuy buying Gran Turismo the day it drops. :)

if gran turismo made a street racing mod id buy me a ps2 right now. :mrgreen:

Wrap ur neurons around this people. Gran Turismo 4, with Arcade, Professional, and Underground modes. You have ur standard arcade, professional with that TOCA stuff where everything can break down, get rid of those damn cars that dont make sense. A chrysler? wtf? i love GT3 because of the realism of the cars and the speed feel. But lets face it people. This is how u beat GT3... Buy the miata. Race till u have 60000. Buy the R-34 vtec j-specII skyline. win and save till ur fast enough to race (and win) the lil tournaments. Win a tournament with the GT1 road car and get that car. The tournament is only 5 races. Then once u have the GT1 u have it made. Everything else is super easy. Thats why NFSU is fun. Its difficult, well not THAT hard but way harder then GT3. @ least on hard mode it is. So you add the underground mode. So there are cars you can hit which makes it more difficult. The turns are sharper. feels like ur going to fast to see which way to turn. BUT u can still use cars like the AWD Mitsu. GTO Race. (fastest 400yd dash) 9.5sumthin, the Toyota GT1 race car (best non-F1 car), and the Zonda race (gr8 car to own in real life) on these winding street roads that would be super.

and i dont know if GT3 has an online mode...but if so then imma instigate by saying that i am the GT3 king!!!!! if u think ur better then i will go out and buy an online package just to race and beat u than post all over this forum about how i made u my bit** muahhahahahahahahahahahahahahah!!!! oh yeah NFSU as well i will beat u!!!!

posted by  VMJYogi

opps i meant r34 skyline v-specII, and i also meant mitsu. FTO LM race car

posted by  VMJYogi

Yogi, u have a very boring approach to games...... i actually tune and use every single car i get. also, no, gt3 doesnt have an online package, and in the game there are tournaments where u HAVE to use other cars. evos, type-rs, italian cars only, theres even an endurance race using only normal miata's.


im taking some cars and seeing how fast i can make them go, oh, and i think i can beat u with my altezza LM car.

but my approach to the game is just see wat i can get the cars to do. build them for krazy top speeds n still make them useable on endurance races (Supra TT is by far the fastest top speed car i have, but holy shit, that thing doesnt know how to stick to the ground).

my FD3S can do 230's tops and 10.2's in the quarter mile, and its still actually usable in the endurance races. theres also my vertigo which wears down tires a bit fast but its still manageable.

oh, and my roadster beast, my audi tt. so slow that i can actually kick everyones asses :D. go superior handling!

I know what you mean. where was the honda NSX.. and if they where gonna make drift why allow cars that anit FR drive on there :orglaugh: . there is no 3000GT.. also since when has anyone made a peugeot 206 GTI reach over 200 mph :laughing: its a bit far fetched

posted by  Lukaz

just wanted to point out that I got TOCA yesterday.. since my friend kept telling me to get it and well.... dont like it... :D I'll stick with Project G2. the game doesnt have a sence of speed! every car do seems to float... and well... yo hit something head on and the back gets damage !?! I'm sure it gets fun... but I cheated and used the codes to unlock all the cars and they all feel the same... overall it gets 5/10 from me... graphics are cool... sound its cool, story is cool... gameplay sucks! :2cents:

posted by  SunDown13X VR4

Is project gotham any good. In the first one is was cool but you couldnt mod any cars and the sense of speed sucked. 140 felt like i was going 45 on an express way. Any ways, CANT WAIT FOR SRS!

nice use of caps. it was very noticable. i went to namco.com right away

:confused: :confused: :confused: :confused: ... ummmmm, thanks?

the 2nd one is sooo much better... so far its my 2nd favorite racing game ever... GT3 being number 1... GT2 being number 3 and Need 4 Speed H.P.2 was great (ps2) cuz the xbox version sucked! (graphics were better on xbox but the ps2 version was more detail...) but I rather get my games on the X anyday of the week :D
