NFS Undercover «Overview»

The first Need for Speed game was released for the 3DO in 1994 and for PlayStation in 1996. Since then, EA has introduced many new twists and turns in its NFS franchise to please racing games fans. While the latest Need for Speed: Shift promises to be more like a conventional simulation racing, previous NFS games had been completely off-the-track, going as far as playing cops and robbers. Need for Speed Undercover for PS2 is one such game replete with car chases and damage runs.

Gameplay (4 out of 5)

Need for Speed Undercover for PS2 covers all aspects of open-ended street racing games. However there’s a nice little story involved to engage racing game fans. The game puts you into the shoes of an undercover cop who is assigned to bust up a local crime syndicate in the fictional Tri-City. The only way to take down these local thugs is to challenge them into street racing. As you slowly gain confidence among the gang members, you have access to more cars and challenges, which in turn helps you to track down deeper.

The story in Need for Speed Undercover progresses when you win a race. You also have the chance to upgrade your car with each successful win. There are several cars in NFS Undercover ranging from Ford Mustang GT and Porsche 911 Turbo to Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX MR. There are few cop cars, but sadly they cannot be upgraded. Nevertheless, the roster of upgradable speedies for the PS2 platform is exhaustive.

The key feature in Need for Speed Undercover is the diverse racing modes. You can go for a speedy car race smashing up other cars and obstacles coming your way or indulge in cop chases. Due to the open-endedness of Undercover, you can take shortcuts or trick cops and rivals into booby traps. All you have to do is look into the map and jump to the nearest race with the push of your PS2 controller’s button. The more races you win, the greater your stats. This enables you to buy and upgrade your cars.

Street racing games in NFS Undercover are easy compared to cop chases. You will easily complete them by the second try. Cop chases can get you into trouble, particularly when four or five cars try to take you to the corner. The cop chases are difficult, but most enjoyable moments of the game.

Graphics and Sounds (4 out of 5)

Need for Speed Undercover for PS2 platform has good graphics. The car models are beautifully rendered and look beautiful when the sunshine gets reflected off their sheen. The environment is gorgeous. I bet you will just wander off with your Porsche doing nothing but gaping at the beautiful sky and city skyscrapers. The sexy cut-scenes featuring the gorgeous Maggie Q will certainly add more excitement to the overall gameplay experience.

The audio in Undercover is vintage NFS replete with sounds of squeals, screeches, scratches and whizzes. It can really give you the thrills and chills of a street racing game. The soundtrack is awesome as suits the intensity of the game.

Overall

Need for Speed: Undercover is a perfect street racing title complete with daring car chases and varied race modes. The cut-scenes and soundtrack certainly makes Undercover a perfect Hollywood style action game with a racing theme.

Expert reviews and ratings

Overall, Need for Speed: Undercover is a decent game but it is disappointingly similar to its predecessors. It doesn’t try to break the mold, opting to trim things by focusing on racing rather than plot. The story’s pacing and mixture of.

There are a few series that need no introduction and Need for Speed is one of them. The legendary franchise has sold more than a gazillion copies and is often considered among the best racing games in the history of gaming. But to be honest, I.

Let’s get this out of the way first: Yes, it’s worse than ProStreet. There are three types of people who will want to play this game: NFS fans, driving fans, and people who are just looking to get into the franchise. Of the above, I feel sorry.

This latest incarnation of Need for Speed harks back to Need for Speed: Most Wanted, as its replete with cop chases and outlandish races. You play an undercover agent who must infiltrate a gang of street racers to bust their smuggling activities -.

Ya can’t really hate it, but it’s hard to really love.

No. No. They were chasing, YOU, pal. After a frantic three seconds, I smashed into the median barrier and was taken down by some rather hands-on SWAT members. That was the intro — getting my arse handed to me in two pieces. The prologue is short and.

This latest in EA’s undying street racing series teaches us that there’s nothing that can’t be solved by high-speed racing. This is a crass game – which would be fine if it would admit it. It shares much with EA’s other.

For the most part, the reaction to the last few Need for Speed games was the same: «Why arent 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.

Need for Speed returns to its roots with hokey cutscenes, wild cop chases, and solid racing action.

With high hopes from the previous Need for Speed (NFS) game, Prostreet, I was looking forward to reviewing the newest installment of the series. I was expecting EA to continue in much of the same fashion as before; track racing, with a more realistic.

Black Box and EA are back at it with yet another edition of Need for Speed (NFS). This time, we’re going Undercover to unravel the mysterious link between street racing toughs and arms dealers. Undercover tries to get back to the days of NFS: Most.

Nachdem Need for Speed: Pro Street einen vergleichsweise untypischen NfS-Stil hatte, ist EA mit Need for Speed: Undercover wieder mit Action zum Underground-Stil auf normalen Straßen zurückgekehrt. Wie bei Need for Speed: Most Wanted gibt es.

Was ist mit der „Need for Speed“-Serie nur los? Sie hat ihren Zenit schon lange überschritten? Sollte EA wirklich überlegen die Serie einzustellen? „Undercover“ kann auf keinem Gebiet mit Top-Rennspielen wie „Race.

Reviews Need For Speed Undercover Review

Founder & Website Editor

Release Date: 18/11/2008

Every year when we see the regular raft of EA franchises making their annual appearance and of course no Christmas charts would ever be complete without the inclusion of a Need For Speed title. Entitled Need For Speed Underground, you take the role of an undercover cop working his way into the street syndicates of the “Tri-city”, not the most original concept but is the constant reuse of “The Fast and the Furious” storyline its undoing?

You begin the game in a top of the range Audi sports car only to have that taken away, you’re then forced to watch one many poorly executed film clips which see you start with a lower range car, winning street races, adding performance upgrades and getting yourself noticed by the said syndicates, all feeling very déja-vu.

So you win races, win time trials, evade the ever more vicious cops and dig yourself deeper into the underground racing scene until you don’t know whose side you’re on. All of this split up with a range of dreadful filmed intros and acting that wouldn’t be out of place on a 15-year-old Sega CD title. On a project with this much budget and by the worlds richest gaming publisher you simply expected better.

But enough of the story, we just want to race and dodge some cops so the first thing that gives any concern would be the handling, which is certainly among the worst of any version. The steering response feeling like you’re driving a unicycle rather than a 400bhp 4 wheel drive sports car. They feel like toy cars at best, that doesn’t mean arcade handling shouldn’t be simple but whenever you drive a car in a 3D environment it should work by a basic philosophy so you really feel in control, you know when to brake, when the car will slide, when the car will grip.

That feedback simply doesn’t feel consistent, the whole execution having a feeling of being poorly tested and unimportant, so, on the whole, you just turn in, let off the power and it should all take care of itself. Of course, if you are exceptionally rubbish at racing games EA has provided the opportunity to purchase additional car improvements with Microsoft points, so for just 300 points you can feel like a winner, this is a novel use of the points system but not necessarily a positive one.

Environments though vast in scale are again simply poor versions of those seen in NFS Most Wanted, but this time appearing drab, lacking in creativity and lifeless, to feature racing in one form of lighting is simply lazy, to virtually copy an older title in the series is without recourse. This is a real aspect of design where the time of day could have affected many aspects of atmosphere and game-play requirements, again the lack of room for imagination never ceases to amaze me or is that disappoint?

Graphically the initial screenshots of the title were very promising, visually capturing a look similar to the aforementioned and excellent NFS Most Wanted, with a 3-year-old graphics engine being solid, surely building on that would make this a very polished experience? Unfortunately, the graphics are among the worst of any version; the title is well below average in every aspect of its realisation and a terrible disappointment to fans of the genre and of the series.

We have to kick off by mentioning the dreadful frame-rate often falling well below 20fps, to an extent that driving becomes more of a “hope for the best” experience rather than a skillful one. The situation deteriorates as more powerful cars are unlocked, this is all most apparent in the bumper cam view, again disappointing but all the more so by a publisher that also brought us the visually astounding Burnout Paradise, EA know better.

Another appalling example of how poorly this game runs is “pop-up”, yes this was an aspect of gaming we felt had long since passed but alas NFS Undercover suffers here too. Tress and buildings popping in to view on many freeways but the most notable instance being the traffic ahead, this involves black blobs appearing all over the road while racing at high speed; a tragic display of some of the worst graphical issues seen in years.

A photo mode is included and your pictures can be uploaded to EA’s official community website, but this is one of the most limited photo modes you will ever see. The camera axis is attached to the centre of the car, you can never get the angle you want, and if the road is narrow it forces the camera in awkward positions. It offers nothing in the way of after-effects seen in a wide range of titles and gives the impression of a last-minute add-on rather than a well-engineered asset to the game.

Online options are basic but functional with a range of scoreboards though this could have been better managed with a listing displaying the range of courses to make it easier to navigate and with no aggregate scoreboard there’s little impetus to really attack every track in the game. Online racing is good fun with a range of modes but cars do have a tendency to fall off the road, if you do lose some control from any contact it’s almost impossible to regain that control and this brings us back to the overall handing issues. It’s good to see EA getting involved from a community standpoint but we’ll have to wait and see how they intend to support the title over the year ahead.

Electronic Arts have long been blamed for rushing out poorly made titles and using their marketing power to generate sales, as a company they’ve worked very hard in recent times to change this image and prove they do care about the games they produce and are willing to take risks on innovation. In this regard NFS Underground is a significant setback for both EA and the Need For Speed brand, EA clearly have some of the best developers in the world but this title looks and plays worse than the 3 year old NFS Most Wanted and to all intense purposes this is the same game with different presentation and a lower quality finish.

On the whole NFS Underground is below par and disappointing, the potential was here for something special but unfortunately, it fails in every regard. If you don’t own NFS Most Wanted you’re probably much better off going for that title and saving the rest of your money for something much more deserving.
