There used to be a racing game from EA Games called as Need For Speed: Underground 2, now this isn't that game but has that same essence of that game. You can say that you'll feel like that but has something different than being the same as Underground 2. So, this game Street Racing Syndicate is available on Steam, and its well not free-to-play and its from the developers at KISS ltd as on steam. Its a pretty old game though...
Street Racing Syndicate a.k.a SRS:
SRS is the racing game on Steam which is quite bit of street racing as the name itself suggests but has something more to it, at the time of its release this game had licensed real car names and parts for those cars which are of real names as well. Those days such type of games with real world names and stuff like that usually got to people like a charm and used to be the real deal. Well, we're talking about those days in 2005 where there used to be Need For Speed games and all those classics...
That's how the game interface looks like incase you're wondering. It sure does look something like the underground 2 but if you observe keenly you'll notice that it not that similar to that game, it just feels like that its similar but it has something different though, well for obvious reasons.
And yep, this game has ladies in it, well at all times you'll find wamen here and there with some crazy looking outfits, well now you may find such a game look obsolete but at that time this game was probably a good looking game then.

Here are some of the screen shots of the game while in-game...
Pretty decent racing game that has some plus points including the street races and the feel of the real racing game. Well don't compare this game with the modern racing games as they will definitely outrun this game for sure, bare in mind that this game is from 2005 just like the Need For Speed Underground 2... So this game falls into one of those classic game where you just play for the feel of the game rather than just for the sake of graphics or gameplay or anything else that matters...
