Om detta spel

Jaga eller bli jagad.
Du trodde aldrig det skulle bli så här – en högoktanig jakt där du är den som jagas, och samtidigt jägaren. Nu måste du sätta dig bakom ratten och riskera allt för att infiltrera och krossa en hänsynslös internationell brottskartell. Mannen du jagar är en riktig fartdåre och han kör som hans liv hänger på om han lyckas fly, vilket det kanske gör. Han sitter inne med alla svar du behöver och du måste spåra upp honom, men alla polisbilarna som du ser i backspegeln lär inte göra det här enklare. Det här kommer kräva allt du har av erfarenhet, och varje uns av färdighet, för att undkomma lagens långa arm, oskadliggöra fienden och avslöja sanningen som kan avsluta den här jakten en gång för alla.
  • Jobba under täckmantel – Gasa rakt in i en actionladdad historia av jakt och svek. Ta på dig uppdrag och tävla i race för att bevisa vad du kan när du infiltrerar och krossar en internationell brottskartell.
  • Tävla på motorvägen – Håll undan både polisen och andra när du jagar ifatt din måltavla i snabba biljakter med höga insatser. Ny och klart förbättrad AI-mekanik ger en mer aggressiv och intelligent polisstyrka som är inställd på att få tag i dig snabbt och med alla medel.
  • Susa fram i en öppen värld – Vråla fram på det enorma vägnätet och upptäck den öppna världen i Gulf Coast-området där tre unika städer är sammanlänkade genom ett omfattande vägnät.
  • En motor värd en hjälte – Med en helt ny spelmotor kan du göra otroliga nya trick och din körning får en extra skjuts.

Great game! Graphics are amazing for the time it was made, and cars are much easier to get than NFS Carbon. I beat the game in less than 30 hours, and it was great every step of the way. The cutscenes are terrific, gameplay is amazing, everything is perfect. The car customization is one of the best I have ever seen! Would recommend. 10/10 Rating.

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:

+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

-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 ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ 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.

One of my childhood games. Looks ugly, but the gameplay... An awesome nfs, probably one of the last good one. Other than The Run. If you like car games, please give this a try, ignore the visuals.

It has plot and this is what I like in NFS games.
Also it has sensitive control if compare with latest NFS games.
One thing you should know - you should follow story and complete story tasks first.
If you will finish all available tasks and after that will follow the story you will have to repeat races and tasks you have finished again.
