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.
This game has 16:9 display capability, but requires setting the game to "Widescreen" mode in the game's internal options, and setting Dolphin's Aspect Ratio to "Force 16:9". Using the widescreen hack is not recommended, as it will cause graphical glitches.
Nitrous indicator sometimes shows that you have no nitro left. Fixed sometime before.

|Windows 7 x64||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|
|Linux 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|
