HonestGamers have posted their review of Need for Speed Underground: Rivals, giving it a 6 out of 10.
"Need for Speed Underground: Rivals will have its fans, that much is sure. And while Ridge Racers is most certainly the better game, Rivals offers a deeper experience, even though much of the package seems flawed and generic. What it lacks is character, what it needs is class. And try as you might, overlooking its faults in favor of simply having a really good time slowly begins to be that much harder to do. The soundtrack carries the usual number of forgettable hard rock tunes, the occasional classic serving only to spice things up. Have I told you yet? I'm sure you've seen it all before. If you're looking for a racer come launch day then you could do a lot worse than this, that you could also do better however might be cause for concern. Buyer beware, or save yourself the money and play the original instead. The choice is up to you..."
