Need for Speed: Underground 2 (NFSU2 or NFSUG2) is a cross-platform racing video game published and developed by Electronic Arts. Released in 2004, it is the direct sequel to Need for Speed: Underground, and is the eighth installment in the Need for Speed series.

The game is based around tuning cars for street races, resuming the Need for Speed: Underground storyline. Need for Speed: Underground 2 provides several new features, such as a broader customization, new methods of selecting races, the "explore" mode (free driving). Underground 2 also introduces several SUVs, which could be customized as extensively as other Underground 2 vehicles and used to race against other SUV racers.

Emulation Information


Need for Speed: Underground 2 has a native 16:9 display option, but it requires enabling it in its internal options and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio graphics setting to "Force 16:9". Using the widescreen hack with this title is not recommended.


VP6 Videos

Need for Speed: Underground 2 uses the VP6 video codec, common in Electronic Arts' titles, causing its videos to have vertical line artifacts and other glitches on NVIDIA graphics cards. The Software Render will display VP6 video correctly, but is typically too slow. VP6 rendering also reacts poorly to the Force Texture Filtering enhancements (and Anisotropic Filtering on NVIDIA), causing further scrambling.

Template:SNitrous IndicatorTemplate:/s

Nitrous indicator sometimes shows that you have no nitro left. Fixed sometime before 4.0-5238.

Template:SNo Car ReflectionsTemplate:/s

All reflectivity on the cars is broken. See issue 8072. Fixed by 4.0-5225.


No configuration changes are known to affect compatibility for this title.

This title has been tested on the environments listed below:

Test Entries
Revision OS Version CPU GPU Result Tester
3.0-692 Windows 7 Intel Core i5-2500K @ 4.5GHz AMD Radeon HD 6850 Perfect: FPS sometimes drops below 30 when there are a lot of vehicles on screen. Resolution:1680x1050, Aspect Ratio:Stretch, Internal Res:Auto, AF:16x Zheka
4.0-5238 Ubuntu 14.10 Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.3GHz NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Playable. Gameplay is perfect at 85-100% speed. HLE accurate, car lighting reflections work, and the nitrous meter is fixed, but cutscenes are garbled. Entering tuning at the garage, my car somehow fell off of the dyno and was hanging off the side of it but after entering a test race and coming back it fixed itself; also there's minor texturing issues, most noticeable around foliage or the letters when naming your profile. While actually racing though these problems are either not present or barely noticeable. Xerxes
