Summary: Picked up this game thinking that it would be a great NFS title, and being a long time fan of the series, I was expecting more. Starting out the difficulty of the races are fine, but once you begin to move up the ladder the cars become drastically faster than yours and, even though you need money to buy new parts, the races become almost impossible to win.
Summary: I got this game thinking that I would really save me money from buying most wanted but the cars are not as good upgrades are pointless and drifting just be carful or it can mess you up during a race. So if you want a good need for speed get Most wanted for sure (2012 version).
Summary: I consider myself a rather big gamer in all genres of games. Racing games are my favorite, but it's tough to find decent racing games. Need For Speed has done well, such as Most Wanted which has made my top two favorite racing games ever made. But on Undercover, they have really dropped the ball. First off, the ranking system is irrelevant.
Summary: While the gameplay and graffics are like an old friend to NFS players, the racing events are WAY too easy. In the past, the NFS games have incorperated spike strips in the persuit modes that pretty much meant that if you hit them, you were busted (max speed about 35 mph). In NFS Undercover, you can hit as many spikestrips as you want and still get away 90% of the time (max speed about 120 mph).
Summary: OH YEAH, NFS UNDERCOVER! Yes, that's exactly what they did... went undercover and tried to steal the driving style of midnight club 2. I hate that game so of course i hate undercover. First, the driving is pitiful on this game. I don't want to drift while accelerating out of a turn. (majority of cars do that at a point). There also seems to be a lot of frame rate issues especially when being chased by cops.
Very Disappointing... Strike 2... Very Honest... 3-4 out of 10

Summary: I'll be honest. This is strike 2 for Need for speed. This game was not very good at all compared to what I think were the best games for racing which was NFS 2 and NFS Most Wanted. NFS Undercover started out with a good storyline but when I started to drive the Nissan 240SX my expectations went out the window. The controls you can pick from are different from I am used to. You can change them but there isn't a good setup for the controller if you want to manually shift.
Summary: I had high hopes for this one... very high. But the moment I drove the 240SX... all my hopes for a good game went down the drain. The game did have a good idea and seemed to be heading in the right direction but compared to the mighty Most Wanted series it failed to deliver. Graphics were sloppy, car handling was a horrible, the city felt more small than big and the racing was okay. As for the difficulty, too easy and the sad part is that you cant change it.
