My info

Cool fast racing tunes, which somtimes come to techno style, sometimes you'll see hard guitar feel inside them. Especially tracks 18 and 19 are really very well done! [8/10]

  • "need4speed2 soundtrack" (by Ace, 1 Apr 2004) [8/10]
    It has a very cool, techno, trance feel to some of the tracks, & also a hard edged, metal feel to others. I particularly like the track that incorporates vocals into the music.
    The transitions from track to track seem to have a predesigned rythym to them.

    Absolutely the best video race game soundtrack I've experienced.

  • "Speed ya up!" (by Darth Nefelim, 8 Sep 2004) [7/10]
    Extremely worthy soundtrack for such a puny game. All tracks are different and non-boring, some of them are really great.

  • "How a soundtrack can improve a game" (by hinse, 21 Jul 2008) [9/10]
    Without this soundtrack NFSII would have been a poor game, for sure. The background music really carries the game and the diversity within the tracks make them not boring. I can recommend this soundtrack, that has actually the official title "Excessive Speed", to every visitor. Go find a copy!
