Need for Speed Underground 2 on the Nintendo DS doesn't match the experience that's been created on the console; instead, the developers built off the foundation it created for the Game Boy Advance version last year. Naturally, it's a better game than the GBA edition simply because the DS hardware is much better suited for the fast-paced environments. Pocketeers, at the very least, show that they've at least got a grasp on the dual-screen's 3D capabilities, even if the system itself isn't nearly on the same level as current generation consoles.
That said, the expectations are a little higher for a DS racer, and while this game is a solid effort, it feels like it plays it safe by never exceeding what's expected out of a portable racing game. The variety of racing options, the wireless multiplayer, and the art customizing features are a good start; it's certainly a satisfying racing experience, but there are gaps in its production. As fun as it is, it just feels like there should be more to the package.
