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 .
