Eurogamer has posted their review of Need For Speed Underground: Rivals, giving it a 6 out of 10.
"Strip the game of its modes, however, place it next to Ridge Racer for a one-lap test drive and it soon becomes clear that Namco's effort gets the fundamentals almost perfectly right, while Rivals just doesn't feel as comfortable or as satisfying. Even WipEout Pure, an entirely different game at heart, gets those basics down better. For the record, I still can't drive real cars. I never sat behind the wheel of a car again (cough except for that one time in America cough) and my father never spoke to me about further lessons after that initial attempt. Still, when it comes to the PSP, I know exactly what route I'd prefer to take: I'll stick to the ridges, and leave the underground to its fans."
