For many of us Need for Speed: Underground 2 is a title to which we return, if only in memory. The game, which launched almost 17 years ago, was a great installment of the Need for Speed series and an excellent racing game. Now, a possible remake of the sequel to the best-selling Need for Speed: Underground has lived to see a fan-made trailer.
Talented creators from Russia
The creators of the trailer are a team known on YouTube as OdonataCinema. Russian graphic designers have displayed a high level of their skills and their work is impressive.
In the trailer, the authors recreated the intro from the original game, in which the main character are greeted at the airport by Rachel Teller. The three-minute fan-made trailer features illegal racing in fast, customized cars through the streets of Bayview. The end of the clip is reminiscent of the ending of Fast and Furious 7, and the characters in the fan-made trailer, like Dominic Toretto and Brian O'Conner, are off to their respective cities after racing together.
In the clip we see the green Nissan 350Z from the original and other famous cars from the other installments - Need for Speed: Underground and Need for Speed: Most Wanted. While watching the trailer you can enjoy a remix of the iconic song by The Doors, Riders on the Storm, which was featured in the original soundtrack of Need for Speed: Underground 2 as one of the menu pieces.
