Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this E-rated game is geared toward a teen and adult audience, not young kids. The game highlights street racing, which is illegal and very dangerous. You'll also find subtle advertisements throughout the game, from car manufacturers such a Nissan and Hummer to billboards that highlight some of the largest automobile companies in the world. Like the game's predecessor, half-dressed women, including former E! "Wild On" host Brooke Burke, appear throughout the game.
Is It Any Good?
While the entertainment value of the game is very high, the game is more suitable for older kids than the elementary school set. The game glamorizes the underground world of street racing. Zipping through city streets in the middle of the night as half-dressed models cheer you on may not be a message you want your 6-year-old getting.
Overall, the game provides an adrenaline rush and can be entertaining. If you know your kid is mature enough to separate the game from reality, Need for Speed Underground 2 would be a nice addition to any game collection. However, you may want to proceed with caution for the youngest members of your household.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
