Need for Speed Undercover
i love this game
i like racing games because you can tunning your own car and beacuse the police is chaicing you every where you go
I like it a lot
I like this game a lot. It's a very good racing game. I'm annoyed that people said they wanted to see free roam and police chases in the next game and when EA gives them that they get mad? Anyway on to my opinion of the game. I felt the game was very good. the police chases are harder than the ones in both carbon and most wanted. I greatly liked the storyline and the twists in the game. The graphics were extremely good in my opinion. The only thing i noticed was in the later stages of the game while i was doing an excess of 200 MP/H was that the frames would slow down quite a bit. I liked the car selection i'm glad to see they had some of the old muscle cars like the camaro as well as some newer cars like the corvette Z06. I was however, GREATLY displeased that on xbox live I believe you couldn't create your own game. Other than live and the frame issue i strongly recommend this game to NFS fans. I hope that people will try to respect the fact that they got there cop chases and free roam back.
I have the NEED FOR SPEED
I was really unsure about Undercover when I got it. The critics say it was horrible, and lots of people think its not that good. I loved it! Yes, I have to admit, that there was glitches and everything, but the level of fun was amazing! The cops were challenging, and it just felt like Most Wanted and Carbon. The storyline is kind of odd, but you just have to deal with it, its not SO bad, but sometimes it is stupid. You're an undercover cop. You street race with the bad guys (drug smugglers, murderers) and eventually you are going to have to 'take them down'. See, the other cops don't know that you are undercover, so you can still get chased by the cops and all that. This game has a hint of realism that Carbon didn't have, and if you haven't played a NFS game, this game will be great equally. Please, whoever you are, get this game!
Not bad.. Not bad at all...
Well, like many of you, I've been playing the NFS series all the way since Hot Pursuit. I'm not sure why so many people didn't like Pro Street, I personally thought it was a nice change from the whole street racing scene. But back to the topic at hand, Need For Speed Undercover. First of all, if you have a Playstation 2 or Wii, don't even waste your time with this game.. I'm not sure what was going through the minds of EA when they made this game for PS2 and Wii... It's as if you're playing a totally different game.. And by that I mean it's like playing Driver with a different story line.. Not that driver was a bad game for it's time, but I think you all get the point I'm trying to make. But for Xbox 360 and PS3 this game is incredible. One of the best racing games (NFS or not) I've ever played hands down. But as I said before, DO NOT make the same mistake I did and buy this game for PS2 or Wii. If you want to play this game go out and buy a 360 just for this game... It's totally worth it in my opinion.
This game was a very enjoyable game for me. First off, I am not new to the NFS series. I have played Most Wanted, Carbon, and even Prostreet. All where very excellent games and this is the best. This game is pretty similar to Most Wanted and that was a great game. Cop chases are great if not better. AI is just as good as any other racing game out there. The cars are so incredibly fast and cool. Although, the down sides are that when you are going extremely fast (over 200) the screen will get a bit blurry and when you get a sun glare it is really hard to see. This game is one of the best racing games out there for the Xbox 360. Another downside was that it was a very fast pace game, I did finish it very quickly. I did finish it in about 14 hours or so of game time, but it was all worth it. I love it all, especially the cars, cops, bosses, and I always have and always will, the free roam. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of racing. It is a really good game.
The closest you will ever get to the greatness of NFS Hot Pursuit 2...
This game takes everything from most wanted and gives it a new handling system (known as the heroic driving engine), better graphics and a WAAAY better storyline in my opinion. This was going to be the last need for speed game that I was going to buy if it was terrible but it turned out WAAAY better than I thought it would. As you can see, I have been playing NFS all the way back to Hot Pursuit 2- and yes I even bought the dreaded ProStreet. But I didn't give up and I got what I've been waiting for. This game incorporates a lot of the key elements that I loved from hot pursuit 2 and threw them together with a story. It's all about outrunning the cops all over again-it will never get old in my eyes. You are an undercover cop with the intention of street racing to infiltrate and take down a BIG drug operation. Trust no one, outrun everyone. Yes, you see that in the trailer but all of those laws apply. Many missions will keep you at the edge of your seat, whether you must deliver a package on time or steal a car and return it to a garage/safe house. The game is really challenging too-the feds are really aggressive and are packing something uber powerful under their hoods with the intent of taking you down. Even the AI in regular racing events will rub with you a little bit. Graphics are really similar to ProStreet (the only thing that I couldn't complain about in that game) but sometimes are overdone by excessive lighting. The heroic driving engine is really helpful and can get you out of sticky situations quick with a J-Turn. You'll even use the speed-breaker in this game a lot more than you did in most wanted. Customization is a bit limited compared to NFS Carbon and the car selection seems a bit limited. Cars sound exactly the way they should if you were driving it and different camera views really let this area shine. Overall, this game is what I was hoping EA to come out with and I'll enjoy it forever just like NFS Hot Pursuit 2. If EA can ever top that game, they've done something monumental. DEFINITELY A BUY FOR ALL RACING FANS ALIKE!
I got this game yesterday and I LOVE IT! I haven't played a decent game in a while it seems. I'm sick of all the darn shooters! With NFS undercover you get pretty much all you want in a racing game. I mean it's no Forza MS, but come on this is NFS. The graphics are great, nothing to brag about but nothing to complain about. I love the sound and music, it goes so well together it keeps your heart pumping through every race. I mean I'm sitting at the edge of my seat for the most part. Awesome storyline, i think the least cheesy of them all so far. They added a take down mode where it's like a destruction derby. Your objective is to destroy the target vehicle which if you ask me is freakin sweet! Yeah, I've noticed a little choppiness when there are like 8 cars on screen and lights all over the place but that's expected... it's an XBOX not a super computer you spent $6k on. All in all I would definitely recommend this game to others. If you're too scared to spend the money then rent it. It's still super fun.
Not for the true NFS fans
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). In other versions of NFS you could expect to restart most persuit missions several times to finish them off without being busted. In NFS Undercover I got busted twice in the entire carreer in it's hardest difficulty setting. The car selection (like the graffics) are old school to anyone who has played NFS games like Most Wanted. Yes, you can add spoilers, hoods, etc. but even that selection has not much changed in several versions of NFS. Overall, I beleive if you are a NFS fan, this one will turn your admiration for the game to disgust with it's unchallenging missions and total lack of risk (I.E. the spikestrips)
Not great and not terrible
This game has some ups and downs, the career and racing was a blast. the vehicle selection was alright but most were just the same old cars from other NFS, but there was some new cars like the 2008 ShelbyGT500KR and the Porsche 911 GT3. And now the bad, the cars are way overpriced, like 80k for a plain old 2006 Mustang GT? please, the parts were also overpriced, the customization was alright but not great. Graphics were awesome even for my 360. Cop chases were too easy, all you have to do is get beside a persuit breaker and drive into it when there is a ton of cars and they will all get disabled, the map was a lot of fun with many roads to explore, the career was easy but fun. But if your a true NFS fan then i suggest you try to avoid this one, too many stupid things in it, they rushed this one in my opinion ah well, its your choice if you want to try it out.
wht i think of the game so far and wht i hope comes out of it.
ok so i went too need for speed's website and watched the trailer i pretty much figured out where the title comes from, your an undercover street racer where u take one diffrenet challenges meeting new rival and getting inside too take them out, but it most likely will turnout too be u betray the cops and help the street racers get away like mea in most wanted help u get away from cross. but from wht i have seen over all i hope its better then prostreet tht game was so bad, i really would like too see more body kits instead of the same old sculpting kits and the single wide body kit, i want customization too be endless and really show u detail of all the parts installed under the hood, but yea this game from the teaser looks like it will be a lot better, lets hope EA does not disappoint again because i am a major fan of all the need for speeds and prostreet was very disappointing, so lets hope need for speed undercover has something new too offer.
