7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: One of the biggest racing franchises to ever grace our consoles is back and hopefully back with a vengeance.  Need For Speed Undercover, developed by Blackbox, has taken the circuit racing out of the series and gone back to its roots as a sandbox racer to try and conquer all. Well there is very good news and some bad news to this title.

Need for Speed: Undercover Review

VideoGamer.com
7 April 2009
  • Excerpt: Need for Speed has never looked likely to win a game of the year award, but for a long time it's been a fairly dependable series. You could more or less bank on EA delivering a fun arcade racer that didn't take itself too seriously, and because of this it's won a huge number of fans. Need for Speed ProStreet threw a spanner into the works with its drastic change of style from open-world arcade racer to closed circuit sim, but we thought Undercover was going to set things...

Need for Speed Undercover

Game Boyz
2 February 2009
  • Excerpt: Racing games have never been my forte; however they remain a genre I have enjoyed since my early days of gaming. Grand Prix for the Atari 2600 is where it all started and more recently I have become hooked on games such Forza 2 for the Xbox 360 and Motorstorm for the PS3. The Need for Speed franchise has also been enjoyable over the years, but to be honest I have not enjoyed a NFS game since Most Wanted for the Xbox 360.

Review : Need for Speed : Undercover for Xbox 360

8Bitjoystick.com
27 January 2009
  • Conclusion: The first score is a 70 percent that is a C- and is one point above a D+. However if the forthcoming patch delivers rock solid frame rates than I am willing to bump the score up to a 90. It is that big of a deal when you are talking about a racing game. I am pulling for Black Box and I hope they can pull through and make this game deliver!!!!

Need For Speed: Undercover Review

Xbox Evolved
4 January 2009
  • Summary: Despite its flaws, Undercover still manages to be an enjoyable game. More importantly, it shows promise for future games in the franchise. If EA can manage to iron out the bugs, get rid of the bad and solidify the good then maybe in a few more games we can finally see a rock solid NFS game. If you were turned off by Midnight Club before of its steep learning curve, Undercover might be up your alley.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: I have been a fan of the Need for Speed series for many years. In fact, seeing the Need for Speed Undercover box on my desk made me reminiscent of the days when I would play Need for Speed Porsche 2000. Yet, after spending some time with NFSU, it made me wonder if the developers even bothered testing the game before letting it loose upon the world… Developed by EA Black Box, Need for Speed Undercover has been released on every platform imaginable, including the iPhone.

Need for Speed: Undercover

Cheat Happens
16 December 2008
  • Excerpt: In recent years, the Need For Speed series has been going through what you could call an identity crisis. The last few titles have been a mix of track style and open world gameplay, incredibly cheesy cut scenes and action sequences that would even make the Die Hard movies blush. Need for Speed Undercover plays as if someone took all of these ingredients and smashed them together into one game.

Need for Speed: Undercover

ActionTrip
12 December 2008
  • Conclusion: Now, the game does bring back a bit of the old NFS spark thanks to the inclusion of cops and certain events. You are also able to play online against other players in a rather cool and entertaining team-based Cops and Robbers mode. Regardless, EA rushed this one out the door and they did a lousy job of hiding it. Consequently, the market gets a mundane, technically flawed racing game deprived of any appealing facets.
  • Pros: It retains some of the old NFS goodness for a while;
  • Cons: Unchallenging, a worse racing experience than Pro Street.
