Need For Speed Underground 2 has 18 players, and many fans still want a remake
It is an inexplicable tragedy that Need For Speed Underground2 has not been remastered. Although Electronic Arts is often only too happy with our cash, the golden opportunity to remake one of the most beloved video games of all time remains untapped.
EA does remasters. In 2021, the Mass Effect trilogies were given a fresh coat of paint and smart gameplay tweaks. A number of Need For Speed games have been remastered, including 2010’s Hot Pursuit.
18 years after the original game’s launch, why are fans stillclamouring to see a remaster? Are you referring to the game’s stunning soundtrack, beautiful world and smooth controls? Yes, it is all of these things.
18 years later, enthusiasts are still creating remakes and imagining how Underground 2 would look on a new-generation console. They are still making petitions and fighting for EA’s attention.
I mean, could Need For Speed Underground2be made in the same style as Tony Hawk’s Pro Skate 1 + 2. Remastered? You can keep everything that made the original so popular, but you can add modern bells to make it feel new and shiny. It’s so easy… Doesn’t it?
While I am writing these words, a quick Google search reveals dozens of petitions and social media campaigns. Some petitions are decades old and have only a handful of signatures. Some are much more recent and have gained sufficient traction to attract thousands of supporters. These petitions and campaigns won’t make any difference in the grand scheme. They rarely succeed. It’s amazing to see the effect Need For Speed Underground2 still has on a generation.
