    Need for Speed: Undercover is a nice racing game. It isn't the best in the NFS series but it isn't the worst. The plot is interesting because rather play as a wannabe street racer, but (as the video game title suggests) as a cop.

It isn't the best in the NFS series but it isn't the worst. The plot is interesting because rather play as a wannabe street racer, but (as the video game title suggests) as a cop. There is a nice selection of cars such as the mighty Bugatti Veyron and a nice selection of challenges such as police pursuits and bringing certain cars to your hideout for money. The graphics are nice and the car models look lovely but the game can feel too easy at times and the game feels like it was rushed in development. Some textures can take longer to load that it can slow the game down and some pop in occurs as well in the game. The gameplay is however, good. Resembles the likes of past NFS titles like Most Wanted and Carbon. Need for Speed: Undercover isn't as bad as everyone say's it is. It's a nice NFS for any NFS fan. Expand

    This game was awesome just loading it up. It had great graphics and effects, and setting up the plot with a police chase was cool. My only problem with it was the twitchy camera at intense parts of the gameplay. But besides that this is game I could see myself playing it in the next year or so. The best new feature this year is the driving engine. In Most Wanted and Carbon, accelerating This game was awesome just loading it up.

But besides that this is game I could see myself playing it in the next year or so. The best new feature this year is the driving engine. In Most Wanted and Carbon, accelerating your car from a low speed felt like scraping a shovel across concrete. With undercover, they fixed that and made the physics so much better that it actually feels like your driving in a car chase thriller movie like Transporter or the Fast and the Furious. Burnout Paradise is a great game too... for car crashes, and Midnight Club: LA is great... for fast paced races, but Undercover has that feeling that your actually driving a high-powered beast and not some crazily over-exagerated space ship on wheels. Overall , Undercover is a great reminder of what a good racing game should be. Undercover has more driving passion. Expand

    It's clear that the Need For Speed series is in need of a GPS unit so it can get back on track.
  2. The game modes are not particularly intense, and the vehicles, although very detailed, fail to offer the feeling from the best of the series.

    Need for Speed Undercover is a poor game with a ton of problems, both technically and in terms of design. The open world design is completely lost as you can't actually drive to any event, many races are closed off which means no cross traffic, and it's incredibly easy.
