Need for Speed II © 1997 Electronic Arts.

No matter what kind of car you drive, the allure of the ultimate car remains. Something better... faster... sexier. A dream machine. The problem is, only a handful of us will ever get to look at one of these supercars in person, let alone take it out for a spin Need for Speed II puts you behind the wheel of not one but eight supercars.

Utilising powerful 3-D technology, NFS II blazes new trails in authenticity, depth and unadulterated driving passion. This is one simulation that feels like the real thing. Except for the smell of new leather
