Rated 10 out of 10 by StarvingMuslim WOW!
I've played the whole Need For Speed Underground series since its first release, and I must say this is the funnest one yet. The graphics are just amazing, the cars gleam and look so beautiful. The sound for each car is different, and the handling is the better than all the others. I really enjoyed Pro Street and this is such an improvement from that one. The story is great so far, they do a really good job of making you connect with the game. The races go so fast you feel like your really going 180 mph. So far I've heard the 360 owners have had ugly graphics with this game. But on PS3 I'm sure they look astounding. The game is presented in 720p which is nice for some of us who can't afford a 1080 so you know you're not missing anything. Hands down my favorite racing game I've ever played. The only complaint I do have is to please bring back the Underground 2 customization. Even Pro Street had a better selection of custom parts. But its a racing game...so I'll let it slide.
Rated 2 out of 10 by dontwasteyourmoney Well online mode is atleast alot of fun...
Ok, anyone who says this game is good on the PS3 is kidding themselves. If you like bugs, zero challenge, bad controls, and a pretty much unsatisfying story mode this game is for you! This game is a total mess. EA put in no effort to make sure this game was debugged before distribution. The bugs will make you think your PS3 needs service. Aside from the horrid frame rate which kills the eyes,where is the challenge? There is none! Which pretty much leaves this game to fall back on its online play which is very good but still leaves this game feeling like its tank is running on empty. The AI is seriously mentally handicapped... what good are cop chases if you never get caught!... Right? The only reason you may loose a race is because of the frame rate. I feel bad for anyone who actually shelled out cash on this game... if your gonna try it please for the love of god RENT IT! My Positive Notes: Sounds are A+, Vehicles are aplenty, and Online is always fun.
Rated 1 out of 10 by jhicks0506 Game has horrible graphics
This game sucks! It is always freezing on me. About 25% of the truns you go around, the background/cars/road/buildings havent even been downloaded yet, so all you see is a bright white light. And, even when everything is downloaded, 100% of the time, everything on the screen is a yellow tint. Damage is very unrealistic. Cops are too easy to outrun. Races are very easy. I win every race easily by 20 sec. And, if you get in a pursuit and get busted, if you dont have the money to pay the fine, you cant get your car back, no matter how much you spent on the car. I put 350,000 into a car, got impounded, and couldnt get it back. Had to start all over. You can even lose it your first time if you dont have the money for the fine. Even if you do have the money to pay the fine, once you get busted 3 times with a car, it gets impounded and you cant get it back. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Rated 2 out of 10 by danneh HORRIBLE GAME
the game its self isnt that bad but it has major bugs which surprisingly after 4 years still havent been fixed sometimes when you change cars you spawn in the floor, sometimes cars spawn randomly in front of you that is at times rare but does happen, on top of that if you dont have enough money and get busted by the cops you lose whatever car you have at the time and you need to buy it all over again including the part, it WOULD be nice if there was a section where you buy cars to reclaim impounded ones for a fee of course but nope there isnt anything there really isnt much to the story need and you can definately forget about multiplayer on this game its a total joke unless you feel like playing 3 gametypes with 1-4 other people 5 other people would be a pure luck i havent played a need for speed game since underground 2 and i think undercover has killed N4S for me especially if its as lame as undercover turned out to be
Rated 5 out of 10 by stupidfast creepa Not as good as advertised
The game had some good things about it but more negative aspects of it. Firstly i would have to say is the game is only challenging if every race you drive backwards, in which some cases you will still win. The next thing i noticed was the car choices, there are a solid amount of cars but it takes forever to unlock the better cars, but it doesn't really matter because you can beat lambos and mclarens with a mazda so its not a big deal. I think they had a good idea with the storyline but its way to short and kinda missing some excitement. To be real i think the game is average at best and previous need for speed games were a lot better. I have also played the new midnight club which i think is a lot better game. The graphics are not as good but the storyline is fun and you actually have to be watching the tv to win a race. So if you like easy games and terrible acting jobs in the storyline then this is the game for you.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Macguy1294 Why is this game so under rated?
This is a great racing game I only saw a few flaws with this game. The amount of cars you get is amazing a ton of cars,however there is not so much of customization in this game which is flaw but its ok. The graphics are amazing.This game on the other hand is very easy and has a chessey storyline,its like watching a soap opera in my opinion,but who cares about the story line in racing games. Pro's: Has amazing graphics awesome amount of cars controls are easy to get used to Con's: easy game to beat literary I got to 77 percent in just a couple days Very poor amount of customizing your cars Game is too easy So overall I give this game an 8 because it has some flaws but its still a good racing game overall,and if you like getting away from the cops this is a little to easy for you then,go for most wanted,but if you like to drive around getting into races and getting away from the cops this a good game for you.
Rated 6 out of 10 by FTW50 Not good enough.....
Though the only NFS I have played are carbon and prostreet, and now this. Well, when I first played this I was like ok this is kinda fun but way too easy at the beginning. I didn't like the starting car you got (nissan 240) since that was the one in prostreet and I didn't like it. After I got a car from a pink slip race I was like sweet but I didn't like how unreal it is. It went from almost real (prostreet) to what the hell wrong. I got a lotus and went 100 mph and a 90 degree corner and all I did was let go of gas. Plus after I played an hour I got 22% done. Customization is not that great and the car variety is pretty nice. They got some newer cars like the R8 and the Koenigsegg, but those are a few of them. Something new was how you take out people by hitting their car. All in all this isn't a game you should buy for the full price maybe when it goes cheaper or on sale or whatever since I borrowed it.
Rated 7 out of 10 by buildanarkbobby12 Not great but ooookay
Need for Speed is an okay game for people who don't like a challenge. the races are sooooooooo easy i could beat them with my eyes closed. they made this game while making pro street so i wasn't suprised to hear that it wasn't great because lets face it, pro street was a disgrace. and if your someone who likes to just drive around and get chased by cops don't get your hopes up. The police are RETARDED I'm not kidding. you can out run them with even the crappiest cars. the graphics were superb but that dosen't make up for the horrible competition. the sound was amazing. it made you feel like you were there driving. Undercover was okay but nfs carbon and the fames underground titles were much better. the whole point of nfs was to be able to build your car up on the streets and then race opponents, thier focusing way to much on the racing and not enough about stuff like custimization and challenge. if you like to drive around running away from police that will never catch you then buy the game, but to all of you that are the old nfs fans get midnight club LA its better.
Rated 10 out of 10 by lilbeast Good Game
NFS has ups and downs and undercover happens to be one of their good games. Underground and carbon were good games but prostreet wasn't so they got back into the street racing type. The graphics are amazing for the cars the people and the accidents. It was a little short but the outline of the story was good. The racing is awesome because its more then just sprints and circuits, you can race 1 on 1 in highway battles and you have jobs to do like steal cars and cant damage the car too much. The cop chases are awesome because the cops are a little smarter and their aren't many easy ways to get away besides taking them all out. The races are good because the more you win the better your driver gets. There is auto help because if you let off the gas your guy brakes and makes really good turns no matter how fast you go which is good so you dont lose speed. The online is fun too.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DirtTrackRacer Good, but not great
This game is good. There are some areas where it does need a lot of improvement, but lets start off with the good stuff about the game. The thing i love the most is the sound of the cars. They sound just like the real cars sound of that model. That means a lot to me because i love cars and it makes the game better. The graphics are good. The game has a lot of detail, like on the cars. It also offers a wide variety of vehicles such as Dodges, Fords, Chevies, and for those people who like imports it has Mitsubishi and a lot more, but that is the only one i can think of off hand. The major thing that disappointed me was the vehicle customization. It is horrible compared to Underground and Underground 2. It only offers a small variety of parts. The game is also really short. This game is second on my list for street racing games or on-road racing games. There is one game above this one and that is GRID. That game is amazing so if you liked this game also think about buying GRID. If you are disappointed in this game i can guarantee you won't be disappointed if you buy GRID. That game is the best but this is second.
