  • 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

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.

  • Excerpt: Grave performance issues, a bland narrative, and a condescending level of difficulty burn through most of Need for Speed Undercover's potential for fun.

  • Excerpt: It’s not just that Need for Speed Undercover is a bad game; it’s that it’s a bad game with an incredibly erratic engine. The flaws, problems and issues that exist in NFS Undercover are virtually inexcusable for a popular franchise from such an affluent publisher.

Need For Speed Undercover

spillarkivet.no
15 January 2009
  • Conclusion: «Need For Speed Undercover» føles ut som et hasteprosjekt, og at førsteprioritet var å nå julehandelen fremfor å levere et kvalitetesprodukt. Det er virkelig synd å se på hvordan Need For Speed-serien har utviklet seg. Det som en gang var en fantastisk spillserie har nå blitt en famlende serie med halvferdige spill. EA burde nå gå i seg selv for å finne ut hvilken vei de vil gå. Slik det er i dag forsøker de halvveis på nye ting ved hvert spill.
  • Pros: Mye action, Mange «drømmebiler», Mange oppdrag
  • Cons: Spillet hakker altfor ofte, Kjedelig og uinspirerende historie, Altfor lite variasjon i oppdragene

  • Conclusion: Need for speed Undercover se positionne dans la stricte lignée de ses prédécesseurs. EA peine à innover et à relancer la saga. On prend les ingrédients qui ont fait le succès de la série et on recommence. Du coup la sensation de déjà joué est omniprésente. Le jeu se rapproche des Most Wanted et Underground qui avaient à l’époque propulsé les ventes de la licence. La liste de défauts graphiques vient assombrir encore un peu plus le tableau.
  • Pros: Prise en main immédiate, Des poursuites captivantes, Nombre d'épreuves important
  • Cons: Sensation de déjà joué, Scénario basique, Graphismes bâclés, Trafic inexistant, Courses trop faciles

Need for Speed Undercover

Gameplayer
24 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Need for Speed: Undercover fyller inget hål i racegenren. Med nyss släppta Midnight Club: Los Angeles som största konkurrent har Undercover ingenting att sätta emot. Dessutom finns förra årets inkarnation av Need for Speed-serien till lågpris, och den delen är bra mycket bättre. Med stel bilfysik, på tok för lätta motståndare och en död stad kommer man inte långt. Vad som hände under produktionen av Undercover är en gåta.
  • Pros: Mycket styling, bilutbudet och det Capture the Flag-liknande onlineläget Cops and Robbers är ganska kul.
  • Cons: Bilduppdateringen, Tri-City, den lätta svårighetsgraden och inramningen i stort.
