Need for Speed: Undercover

Need for Speed: Undercover is a racing video game that was developed by Canada’s EA Black Box and published by California’s Electronic Arts. It is the 12th installment of the Need for Speed series and was released in November 2008. This game is also available for the Sony Playstation 2, the Sony Playstation 3, the Xbox 360, the Nintendo DS, the PSP, the iPod Touch, the iPhone, and the N-Gage 2.0.

Plot

Need for Speed: Undercover is set in a fictional city referred to as the “Tri-City.” This city is composed of four boroughs called Palm Harbor, Port Cresent, Gold Coast Mountains, and Sunset Hills. Within the city, players control the character of an undercover police officer who is tasked to go into the city’s criminal underground with the ultimate goal of taking down an international crime smuggling syndicate of street racers and car thieves. While in pursuit of this goal, the player has to complete a variety of dangerous tasks and complete races. Some of the tasks include stealing cop cars and racing criminals in order to help cops capture them.

Map

The game features an open-world map to Tri-City which consists of more than one hundred miles of roadways and a large highway system.

Race Types

The four available race types in Need for Speed: Undercover are Circuit, Sprint, Highway Battle, and Cops & Robbers. In Circuit races, players and opponents repeatedly race around a specific route while Sprint races have a specified finishing point. Highway Battle involves racing in a busy highway where cop trouble is sure to come. Cops & Robbers, which is played online, allows users to choose between playing the role of a robber who is tasked to pick up and drop off a package at certain points in the city or the cop who is trying to stop the robber.

System Requirements

Need for Speed: Undercover can run on Windows XP and Windows Vista. It requires at least a 2.8 GHz Intel Pentium 4 processor, a DirectX-compliant video card with PixelShader 2.0, a DirectX-compatible sound card, 5.5 gigabytes of free hard disc space, and 1 gigabyte of RAM.
