Need For Speed: Undercover
A HIGHLY anticipated title by me and a lot of other Gamers around the world.
This latest installment in the NFS series had the mammoth task of wiping out the prejudice and impudence created by its predecessor Need for Speed Prostreet.
Taking into consideration that the last title brought nothing but abuses from everyone EA decided to take the action back to the streets and give the players what they expect from NFS.
I dont know how this story ends but being an undercover cop infiltrating street racing gangs is quite a bit of fun. Considering the amazing improvements in graphics and effects in this game there is great pleasure to be sought in just driving around in the car of ur dreams even though it may just be in the virtual world. There are however, certain points at which we can see or atleast it seems like the cars in front of u is floating in the air.
The Cop chases are back and somehow seem simpler than ever I dont no if it me or has the AI gotten a lot dumber than NFS:Most Wanted. In any case u still have the usual cost to state, Cop car knockout and Escape from the cop game modes that are fun at certain points but still seem a bit toooo easy for my liking. There is a lack of the free roam challenges that made driving around town way more fun in NFS:Underground those have been replaced by these new game modes called Highway Battles that require u to either get a lead of 1000+ feet or keep the lead for 60+ seconds.
The usual game modes include Circuit, Sprint & Checkpoint. I dont understand why cant EA just Keep the Drags and Drifts im sure a lot of ppl will agree that those were the most fun races specially the drifting style that was implemented in NFS: Carbon.
Well all in all its a pretty fun game and if ur a car enthusiast by all means go get this coz itll keep u occupied. If u want to get over Prostreet i would advise u to get Carbon coz its way more fun and tougher even. But still its NFS and its always fun. :>
As a Gamer i give it a 5.5 coz of repetitive gameplay.
