This game was so disappointing !!! EA, Shame on You !

Summary: This is the first review I have written for a video Game. I really wanted to like this game, but it was a total disappointment ! I have alot of experience playing video games, my favs are all the Sims games. I like car racing games so I thought that this would be fun. I bought it as a download from the EA store.I have downloaded many a Sims game to my computer without a problem. This game was a total nightmare.
Summary: Microsoft Windows 7 compatability web site says that Underground is compatable... NOT SO! It will run, but you have no control and the graphics look like 1990. I have a monster system with Nvidia 1Gb card and a Gigabyte X58A-UD7 motherboard... Intel i7 2.8Ghz, 12Gb RAM and it still sucks.
Summary: If it plays on your machine, then it's a good deal. Like others have mentioned, the game freezes up right after the intro to a white screen of nothing. I've got Vista w/ 4gb ram, tried uninstalling/reinstalling, DirectX diagnostics, all the latest drivers, unplugging my keyboard, nothing helps. I'd return it to EA, but they'd just send me another coaster.
Summary: This Game does not run on my machine, even though it meets and exceeds all the requirements posted on the EA site. This is the support ticket response from EA: After reviewing your dxdiag I gained that your machine has got windows vista 64 bit as an operating system. For this I want to address you that EA games are not at all compatible on 64 bit operating system .
Summary: This by far is the worst NFS ever, game play is nothing new, its just like the previous NFS only with chase mod and a bit more damage, game play is very bad, graphics is not as expected, and the game has many problems, dont by this game and wast your money! this is no racing game its a circus!! game making is going down!
Summary: I think for those who care, this game should not to be sell anymore. The game have smart way off teaching youths to steal, to destroy community and last but not least to put them self in later high risk situation. I have destroy my copy of this game.
Summary: Even with the large amount of folks who are unable to play the game, EA still hasn't bothered with patching it to a usable level. I'm sure they are just too busy cranking out some other unfinished products to get onto the shelves in the hopes that customers will just forget about this little travesty. My problems with Need for Speed Undercover are numerous. Just to get the game to not crash during startup, I have to unplug several unrelated USB devices.
Summary: I believe I've played every Need for Speed Electronic Arts has made, and I would have to say this is the most disappointing. 1. The cars don't feel right. In Most Wanted, you felt like you were driving a solid car. But in the game, you somehow feel like you're piloting a soggy balloon that can't reach escape velocity. 2. The cutscenes and overall plot is filled with such juvenile piffle that you want to hide under the table.
Atari 2600 Pole Position is more fun and better graphics!

Summary: What a piece of garbage! This thing barely runs at all, the most clippiest piece of junk ever dumped out of EA. The graphics stink, NFS:Underground runs just fine on my rig, I can play most MMORPGS at full maxed out graphics capabilities, but I can't get even a decent frame rate without clips at even 640X480 on a P4with 2GBs and a ATI 9800 with all settings at minimum on this garbage.
Summary: Here's a good one -- if you have a Saitek Eclipse USB keyboard, or several other brands of USB keyboards, but not quite all, the game will crash at the load screen every single time you try to play. Brilliant! A USB keyboard -- Yeah, such a revolutionary piece of PC gear these days, right? Lol Per the usual EA support policy: no acknowledgement, no patch, no help. Avoid this game! Better yet, avoid EA!!!
