i found this game a little hard to actually judge and rate.
over all the game play was solid and has fairly good re-playability giving other modes besides career such as the challenges and multiplayer with up to 4 players. having ability to choose your difficulty level & wide range of controler options were a big plus. mainly who doesn't love out running the cops & some street racing. thats what these need for speed games are all about! so who cares how realistic the cars handle. This is an arcade game not a sim!
one thing i'd suggest to those thinking about this game is do not listen to those that are comparing this need for speed with prostreet! your comparing apples to oranges they were made by a totally different development teams & anyone that s been playing these games knows that EA always had two separate need for speed teams. thats why every other need for speed game is different in design style. A fan could tell this was the the team that did most wanted. Which it was :)
now a couple things that were keeping this game from being a runaway hit i thought was foremost I think they forget to use shaders on the car in the wii version. The weird thing about this i noticed the cars did look much better when you painted & started customizing the body. but honestly still not as good as the pc or others. I would not go as far as saying its sub ps2 its not that bad honestly.
Also the issue with the on coming traffic appearing to close is annoying but it not as bad as with other platforms where that issue if far worse. wii version its tolerable.I am however disappointed that there was no online multiplayer like with all the rest of the platforms and curious as to why it was left out?
the game was definitively designed for the pc tho with the 360 prob being the closest.its weird that this game varies so greatly from one platform to the next? most of the time they are basically the same
overall its a fun game to rent & play & buy if your a fan of the series
NFS Undercover, is a great rental game. It has some interesting features & modes beyond the previous NFS games i have played. I miss the ability to use the wiimote as a gas pedal, there is something imprecise about no gas or full throttle. I thought the graphics were not as good as they could have been & seemed choppy.
