You never thought it would turn out like this - an all-out chase where you're the hunted. And the hunter. Now you must get behind the wheel and risk everything to infiltrate a ruthless international crime syndicate and take them down. The man you're after is a maniac behind the wheel, and he's driving like his life depends on escape, which maybe it does. He's the one with all the answers you need, you will track him down. Needless to say, that fleet of police cruisers in your rearview mirror won't make things any easier. It will take all of your experience - and every ounce of skill - to outrun the law, take down the enemy, and unlock the truth that puts an end to this chase once and for all.

Go Deep Undercover: Race into an action-packed story of pursuit and betrayal. Take on jobs and compete in races to prove yourself as you infiltrate and take down an international crime syndicate.

Highway Battle: Fight off the cops and others as you take down your prey in high-speed, high stake multi-car chases. New and vastly improved A.I. mechanics mean more aggressive and intelligent cops focused on taking you out fast and by any means necessary.

    Own the Open World: Tear across the massive highway system and discover the open world of the Gulf Coast Tri-Cities area, with three unique cities connected by an extensive highway system.

      Heroic Driving Engine: An all-new game engine lets you pull off amazing moves for the ultimate driving edge.

      well what can i say? a great game to play , after playing for a good few hours i realised that this game was alot more fun than pro street. i didnt like pro street at all to be honest , having to go round circuits was pretty boring.
      undercover starts by putting you in a police chase , you being the escaping driver , this is similar to NFS carbon , this game feels alot like carbon in the way of free roam and handling of the cars.

      the controlls are simple to get used to and the handling of the cars is gread , FWD cars really feel like FWD cars , the same for RWD cars, the graphics are fantastic , detailing the car spectacularly .The sounds of the cars are jaw dropping , i litteraly sat there for 30 mins reving the engine of my simple nissan 240sx , it sounds awesome. and when you acqure upgrades for performance of the car , the engine sound changes slightly to give that power-feel
      there is also damage which is nice, it looks realistic too , one race i hit some traffic and my bonet was dented and when i hit over 100 mph the bonnet flew off behind me! which was pretty cool. to sum up the good points i would say this game is highly addictive and the selection of cars is real good .

      now for the bad points , there isnt that many really , one major point is lagg, sometimes whilst racing you might experience a little bit of lagg/slow screen rate. this is a little annoying at times but dosent spoil the gameplay that much. another downside is the actual speed of the cars, it might just be the first few cars but i was doing about 140mph which felt like 14mph, but again this might be because it was the first car i started with , the city itself seems a bit quiet , theres not alot of trafic really and theres not alot going on there , the last 2 bad points i would have to make are the fact that this game dosent have multi-player offline mode or a mode where you can simply 'do-up' a car when ever you want, you have to go into career mode and do one up which costs alot of money.

      so overall i would reccomend this game to anyone who is a fan of the series or to anyone who likes modifying cars. i personally think NFS underground 2 for the PS2 is still the best , the customisation on that game and the activities you could do make that game the best for me , if your reading this EA , if you would make the next NFS game similar to underground 2 , i would bow at your feet .

       Could be better, could be worse...

      I couldn't wait for this game to come out, and I received it a day before it was actually released. I was a bit anxious after reading reviews, but I think they were bit harsh.

      First off, the graphics are pretty impressive, the city and the cars look great. However, some of this is ruined by the lag the game suffers, which isnt really acceptable for a ps3 game. Despite this, it doesn't seem to ruin the game as much as some people make it out. It's more annoying than anything.

      The cars list is fantastic, bringing back cars from Carbon such as the Porsche Carrera GT, Mercedes SLR Mclaren, Aston Martin DB9 and the Lamborghini Gallardo LP560. Also there are some great new additions such as the Bugatti Veyron, Mclaren F1, Porsche GT3RS and the Audi R8. They also have got rid of the really rubbish, slow cars (such as the Honda Civic and Toyota Corolla) so that there are fairly decent cars to start with.

      The customisation of the cars is similar to ProStreet, but I think it has improved slightly. The body kits are great, and tuning your car is fun.

      The gameplay itself I feel is a big disappointment. The handling is so arcadey. you can take almost any turn without needing to brake. Also, the acceleration of the cars is really unrealistic. You can drive a Nissan 240sx and still outaccelerate the top cars at the start line. This I feel is a step back, because what I liked about ProStreet as the official acceleration, so the speed was very realistic. Another thing is that the cars dont reach the speeds they would in real life. I souped up a Bugatti Veyron as much as I could, and it only reached 250mph, less than it would at stock level in real life. Now some people may like this idea, but I think it ruins the gameplay.

      The storyline is pretty naff, nothing compared to that of Most Wanted. Basically you are a cop pretending to be a street racer and you make friends with other racers and then take them down. The game itself doesn't compare to Most Wanted in this aspect, which is another disappointment.

      Online play is a bit limited, you can do circuits, sprints, or cops and robbers, which is a game where you take turn to be a cop then a robber and try to either collect money or bust the robbers. It does get repetitive after a while, and isn't the best.

      The difficulty as you may know already is terribly easy. I got over halfway through the game without even upgrading my car once. Only then did I upgrade to make my car better to drive. I haven't totally finished the game yet, but I'm not far off. Also the length of the career is pretty short, I remember playing Most Wanted for weeks on end, getting frustrated by losing races continuously. But with Undercover, it just doesn't happen.

      One last thing, the fact that you can just jump to an event isn't such a bad thing. I don't know why everyone is making such a big issue about it. Doesn't anyone remember you could do the same in Carbon and Most Wanted? It's not new...

      The fact that there is no offline 2 player is a bad idea, because NFS has done it for years, and they just seem to have taken out a perfectly good part of the game. It's happened a lot with racing games recently, and I can't see why...

      I know there are a lot of bad points about the game, but in honesty it's not too bad. It's still fun to play and to customise the cars. It just isn't as good as expected. Lets hope next year's will be more like the amazing Most Wanted, and less arcadey.

      If you are a NFS fan, you probably will still love it, but don't expect it to be as good as Most Wanted, which i still feel is the best NFS yet. A reasonable game, nothing more, nothing less.

       One of the biggest let downs' of the year

      I don't think the creaters actually played the game when they finished it, the steering of the car is absolutly terrible. The graphics are no way near as good as nfs most wanted/carbon and thats on a older console. The free roam is a complete waste of time because you can't drive to the race or to shops you either click on map or push down to jump to the nearest race.the game is easy and short, being playing it for 4 hours and i'am 46% game progress. Overall the game is a big let down, i think they should have concentrated on making the game play better instead of the fancy acting

       The best need for speed game
