Summary: Okay I know I should have expected the game to be what it is but with the need for speed name i expected something more. The story line is straight out of a movie and should have had the movie name on the cover instead of need for speed as it is pretty much the same story line and the same cheap crumby cars.
Summary: I remember when this game first came out a few years ago. I wanted it for my PS3, but after the many many bad reviews I saw, I decided to wait until they patched the game. Around four years later, I decided to finally give it a go and paid $10 to download it from Steam. I can't even begin to describe how happy I am I didn't blow $60 on this game, but I'm a little said I spent $10.
Summary: I bought a brand new laptop with a 2.2 GHZ Intel core 2 duo T6600, 4 GB RAM, and an Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics card. I had no racing games, so I bought NFS Undercover. With every graphics option at minimum/off, it's still a bit glitchy during anything more than cruising in low traffic. By then the graphics are falling to average for a PS2, so it kinda sucks for me. It looks pretty good with everything turned up, but becomes unplayable with my laptop.
Summary: There is a reason EA is not providing a demo of the game. The game play is awful, not the same open world feel as in Most Wanted. The driving makes it seem like the player is driving a Zip Zap. Story line is interesting. EA Online Cops and Robbers is nothing like Midtown Madness 2's Cops and Robbers. The game recognizes the Xbox 360 Controller but provides no force feedback.

Summary: I bought the game about a week ago. Now that I've clocked it, here's what
I think. Pros:
HUGE map – good for free roaming
Many cars to choose from
Variety of race types/modes
Graphics – if your computer can run it (which mine can't) Cons:
Physics – it is truly awful
Cops – they can be irritating
New menu system – annoying and rather inconvenient As a whole, it is a fun game, but it'll get boring very quickly.
Summary: I'm a need for speed fan and i'm terribly disappointed at the last few games
(carbon, pro street & undercover). Need for speed seems to have fallen down
the roads because the game is terrible now. The story is alright i guess but the AI is so stupid they follow a fixed
track i think, they don't try to bump you or anything.
Summary: 2 things I didn't write about in the previous review: the story, and
online. The cutscenes in the game does make you feel like you're watching a movie. It
is really that good. Also, the ending has a very interesting twist that may
surprise. Online in this game is very fun. Although finding a game online maybe
difficult at times, once you find one though, it is very rewarding.
Summary: Take a well known franchise with a few good and excellent games (underground
2, most wanted etc). And slap on a bs hollywood story.
mmm fun. – not. As stated before the ai is built off the “cheat the buggery out of the
game” rather then having a good drag out battle. Test this for yourselves get
a trainer for infinte nos , and then watch as the ai sails past you no mater
what your doing.
