Om dette spillet

Jag eller bli jaget.
Du trodde aldri at det skulle ende slik – i en heseblesende jakt der du er den det jaktes på. Og jegeren. Nå må du komme deg bak rattet og risikere alt for å infiltrere et skruppelløst internasjonalt forbrytersyndikat og få dem arrestert. Mannen du er på jakt etter, er en villmann bak rattet, og han kjører som om livet sto på spill hvis han ikke slipper unna, og det er kanskje tilfellet. Han er mannen som har alle svarene du trenger. Du er nødt til å finne ham. Selvfølgelig gjør ikke den lange rekken av politibiler i bakspeilet ditt oppgaven enklere. Du trenger all erfaringen din og alle evnene du har for å slippe unna lovens lange arm, bli kvitt fienden og finne sannheten som kan stoppe denne jakten, én gang for alle.
  • Gå dypt i skjul – Kast deg inn i en actionfylt historie om jakt og svik. Ta jobber og konkurrer i kappløp for å vise hva du duger til, mens du infiltrerer og tar knekken på et internasjonalt forbrytersyndikat.
  • Kamp på motorveien – Kom deg unna politiet og andre mens du meier ned byttet ditt i kappløp i høy hastighet med flere biler der mye står på spill. Ny og svært forbedret kunstig intelligensmekanikk gjør politiet mer aggressive og intelligente og mer fokuserte på å ta knekken på deg raskt og til enhver pris.
  • Vær sjef i en åpen verden – Fyk gjennom det omfattende motorveisystemet, og opplev det åpne Tri-Cities-området på Gulf Coast, der tre unike byer er koblet sammen via et vidstrakt motorveisystem.
  • Kraftig kjøremotor – En helt ny spillmotor gir deg mulighet til å gjennomføre fantastiske nye manøvrer som gir deg det ultimate overtaket på veibanen.

Where do I start with this.

Need for Speed Undercover has been bashed, beaten & overall just despised by the entire Need for Speed community, often described as "one of the absolute worst Need for Speed games ever made". But, judging you see that giant blue thumbs up, you obviously can tell that I don't think that way.

Now, those of you who really hate long reviews (because there's gonna be quite a lengthy one ahead), here's a short pros-n'-cons review to not waste your time:

Pros:
+Can run on a toaster
+Great soundtrack
+Huge car selection
+Easy-to-follow story
+Simple controls that are even very playable on a keyboard
+Visuals are passable
+Gameplay is rather fun

Cons:
-Story is inconsistent and highly forgettable
-Visual glitches regarding the sky & the sun (sun flies from one part of the screen to the other while the sky spins in a nauseating fashion)
-Horrible racer & cop AI
-No "Perfect Start" (a prominent feature in Most Wanted, Carbon & World)
-Steam Overlay (unfortunately) does not work with Undercover, due to EA not patching out the old, outdated Steam Overlay DLLs in the game's files

Do I recommend?
If you just want a racing game where you could really care less for story & want one that can run on your toaster computer, then yes, NFS Undercover should fill that niche for you quite nicely & I recommend the game for the price it's asking.

Now then, short review done. Let's get on with the long review!

The Story & The Characters:
I'm not gonna bother with a brief synopsis of the story, since that's what the store page basically tells you. But what I will give will be my thoughts on the story. So. I think the story in Undercover is garbage. It's very sloppily put together. Some characters come & go without a proper explanation, some characters are given NO INTRODUCTION and just sort of...appear, other characters for some reason or another just swap roles mid-story, eh, you get the point. I get that it's to be expected that a racing game will have a terrible story, but back when this game was announced & being promoted like the next best thing, it tried to take itself seriously, with all the trailers & promotional videos. So, yes, the story is trash, introduces characters & gets rid of characters periodically & tries to take itself way too seriously, which is why I don't like it & find it very forgettable. It shouldn't take you more than 10 hours to beat the entire story, I, for one, beat the single player campaign in around 8 hours & now am doing my second runthrough on the Steam version of this game, just for the sake of adding in more gameplay hours.

The Visuals & Audio:
Before I move on to the meat of the review, being the gameplay, I wanna briefly go over the game's visuals. They look...passable. Now, I've had the pleasure of experiencing this game both in 1080p Ultra Settings & 360p Very Low Settings, and generally - I am impressed with the framerate. The game (for the most part) is very consistent with the framerate on newer hardware & back when my good PC was still alive & played this game for the 8 hours it took to complete the single player campaign, the framerate was crazy-stable at 60 FPS, with sometimes dropping below when there were too many cops at once, which is understandable. As for the visuals themselves, everything in the game world, including the road you drive on & the water beyond the shores looks "alright" at best. Yes, Black Box has done MUCH better in terms of visuals in Carbon & even Most Wanted, but I don't think the game looks ugly by any means, but certainly doesn't live up to the 2008 year it came out on. And the audio? The car sounds are remarkably pleasant to listen to, giving off the feeling that the car you drive FEELS like an actual car and not a freaking go-kart. The soundtrack is picked rather well & there are a handful of songs I don't like, sure, I like most of the soundtrack.

The Gameplay:
And now, we move on to the meat of the review - the gameplay. Need for Speed Undercover's gameplay tries to emulate the critically-acclaimed gameplay of Most Wanted & Carbon while trying to introduce enough new things to stand on its own. First of all - the controls are great. Every car feels very responsive & turning even with the slowest of muscle cars while using a keyboard, not a controller or wheel, felt super reliable & the car showed no signs of delayed turns or any kind of ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t some racing games usually have, which is great, as great control is what makes the game great. There are, however, a few things I really don't like about the gameplay. Gone from Most Wanted & Carbon are perfect starts, which require to get your speedometer stick on a certain part of the actual speedometer when it changes color to give your car a bit of a necessary boost when you start, unless you want to drag on for about 30 seconds, trying to catch up to your opponents. Thankfully though, Undercover's AI is built around the lack of perfect start, so it's not like they'll speed up instantly, no, they'll generally start out at pretty much the same pace as you do. NFS Undercover has a multitude of game modes, with a few brand new game modes, never-before-seen in any previous Need for Speed game, or even any sub-sequent games - Jobs & Highway Battles. Briefly about the other game modes - they're standard fare what you'd find in other Need for Speed games - you got Circuit, Sprint, Checkpoint, Outrun (making a return from Underground 2) & Police Events. About those "exclusive" game modes, as it were. First - Jobs. Jobs are essentially your character stealing a car & then driving said car to a drop-off point, meanwhile cops are after your ♥♥♥ and your goal is to escape the cops & get to the drop off point. This game mode doesn't have a time limit of any sorts, so you can breathe in relief, however - some jobs do have damage meters, which are rather easy to deplete. Highway Battles are sort of glorified high-speed canyon events from Need for Speed Carbon, just with ♥♥♥♥-tons of traffic & only 1 stage. The goal in Highway Battle is to get ahead of your opponent & lead by 300 m (or 1000 ft if you're using the Imperial system) whilist trying to not wreck your car with the insane amounts of traffic around you. These 2 exclusive game modes are generally executed very well, with the opponent AI sometimes being crafty enough to try and block your path by purposefully pushing traffic cars into you & they take advantage of every opportunity to overtake you and make your day horrible, should you ♥♥♥♥ up midway in the race. Making a return from Need for Speed ProStreet is domination, but this time - instead of completing an entire area to "dominate", dominations are handed out if you can manage to beat the developer time for each race in the game, not counting Jobs. Early game, beating the developer "domination" time is quite easy, but later down the road - it gets more & more difficult. For Customization - if you've played ProStreet & seen that game's insanely expansive customization system, then Undercover will bring nothing new and you can jump straight in. But for the new guys? I'll throw it out there right now - customizing your car (other than its performance) does nothing and won't give you any benefits like in ProStreet. They're just there if you want your car to look nicer, but be warned - if you will ever decide to play online (which will happen only if you have someone who plays this game after 7 years), your vinyls that you apply to your car will not be shown. Why? Who the hell knows, but they disabled it. I haven't spent much time in the customization menu myself, so I really can't comment on anything here.

It does what any good arcade racing game does best. Amazing picture perfect graphics which take very little power to run, has free roam and a ton of awesome cars to choose from. The story mode is just what you need it to be,crazy chases, wrecks or just good old racing with long tracks spanning miles on end. The physics aren't as realistic but this is an arcade game, a great one at that.

There's a good bit of variety and a fair story to go along withe driving, even if it is a bit short. You can choose to drive from race to race, which I find one of the best aspects of these games.

Graphics are smooth and, because of its age, it will probably work on even cheap modern hardware.
