  1. A competent and accessible racer to DS owners. Gamers looking for a more customization-heavy or in-depth racing experience should look elsewhere. However, those that want a portable title that delivers some arcade-centric racing action on the go should give the title a try.
  2. A sporty hatchback rather than an exotic supercar but worth taking for a spin. [Jan 2009, p.85]
  3. The racing is competent, the game modes are plentiful and it's an impressive technical achievement, but that doesn't make it a fun game to play.
  4. Need For Speed Undercover on the DS is a fairly basic affair. It plays well, has no real technical flaws worth mentioning and has a sturdy base to it. It is graphically sound but dull and repetitive. Overall, it is very basic and does not provide any real thrills. For an exciting and in-depth game, look elsewhere.
  5. Courses are angular and riddled with pop-up, and the impression of speed is created by what looks like dandruff flying off your car's roof. [Feb 2009, p.76]
  6. Need for Speed Undercover should be a thrilling no-holds-barred ride but the wheels fall off early on.
  7. Need for Speed Uninspired would be a better name for this mediocre racer.
