Need for Speed Undercover

The Gamers Temple
18 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Need for Speed Undercover is all about two things: racing and cop chases. Yes, there's a story in the game and it's told through live action cutscenes. And yes, you earn rep and cash, tune cars, and build a collection of fast, real-world cars. However, everything about the game is designed to keep you racing as much as possible. Whether or not that's a good thing depends a bit on how you like your street racing games...

  • 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.

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

GameSpot
19 November 2008
  • Summary: For the most part, the reaction to the last few Need for Speed games was the same: "Why aren't they more like Need for Speed Most Wanted?" "Where are the cheesy cutscenes and the over-the-top cop chases?" It seems as if EA heard those cries, because for better or for worse, Need for Speed Undercover feels like Most Wanted. In Undercover you play the role of...wait for it...an undercover officer.
  • Pros: Plenty of cop chases, Instantly join races with press of a button, Isn't long before you're driving a cool car
  • Cons: Lots of quirks and nagging gameplay issues, Emulates Most Wanted, but doesn't necessarily improve upon it, Story isn't much to get excited about, Frame rate isn't great
