NFS Underground 2 TrailerThe onlinemagazine Gamespot published a trailer of Need for Speed Underground 2. You can view it there by streaming, or you can download it from here:

Update: I am very sorry, but as it seems the new trailer in our movie section just begins as the one at Gamespot, but it's a bit different movie. I couldn't save the movies from Gamespot yet, and streaming just won't really work...

NFS U2: Interviews @ Gamespy Saturday, 02.10.2004
NFSU2The onlinemagazine Gamespy made an interview with Justin Wiebe, the Associate Producer of Need for Speed Underground 2, and Brooke Burke, the model which will play the character Rachel in the game.

GameSpy: Can you explain how you've altered the "style points" system and how that will affect a player's NOS (nitrous oxide) allotment?

Wiebe: The new nitrous system we call "Race Breaker" is designed to create an equal balanced playing field for the various types of drivers that play racing games. Through our market research, we discovered three very distinct types of drivers. First, the technical drivers will essentially brake before a corner, accelerate through the apex of the turn, getting the most amount of speed around every corner and consequently achieving great lap times. Second, there are the kamikaze drivers that use anything and everything to help them round a corner, typically using walls, trees, even other cars to their advantage. These types of drivers will rarely let their foot off the gas. Finally, there are the bad drivers. They simply can't drive and, well, we can't really help them out too much.

As for the first two styles, we found it was a bit of a problem trying to even the A.I. so that both racer types would have a challenging and enjoyable experience, thus the Race Breaker was born. The Race Breaker is designed to award players that drive with style in races. Players that power slide through a corner rather than taking a more technical approach will be awarded with extra Nitrous, helping them catch back up to the other racers. The style points will always favor the more stylish driver, but even technical drivers will receive some rewards as they beat lap times, gain positions in the race or avoid accidents. The more nitrous a player accumulates the faster it is and longer it lasts, this feature adds an entirely new strategy to when and where players use their nitrous in a race because, as the name suggests, it really can make or break a race.

NFS U: How -2- Drift Friday, 01.10.2004
NFS UndergroundMachineGR and CBulletGR made a new movie, with the name 'How -2- Drift', which should teach you the drifting in Need for Speed Underground. It is the second part of the "How to Drift" video, we posted about some time ago here.
Now there are two versions of different quality (51 MB and 152 MB). Although the file is quite big, it's really worth a download if you want to improve your drifting:
