This game brings back some of the good qualities of the most wanted and the carbon need for speeds. This game has many fast and exciting cars that suit the games story. I have always wanted to see the cars like the skyline and many others that would make the game more exciting. I would really recommend this game to all of the people that like racing games. This game is really fun and exciting and considering the changes they made to the persuit chases, races and cars it makes it really fun to play. If you want to see a cars list before playing that would be ok because all the new cars that were put into the game really make it fun. But other than that i would really recommend this game to all racing/ persuit gamers

The game has good graphics, but occasionally the game turns all black for a few seconds after using NOS. The game has a lot more activities than the previous game like, Highway Battles, Escape the Cops, Outrun, and Jobs. The game has a very good selection of cars to choose from. I found the game fun but their are a few things I don't like. First is that in the begging you are just given a car. Its not like NFS: Carbon where you choose your type of car, you just are given a pretty bad car. Also the handling is really bad on the first car but it is better on the rest. Second is that you can't drive to the many races you have to choose them from your GPS or push down on the D-pad to go to the closest race.The third thing is that there are a lot of stupid and pointless cut scenes. For example: the cut scene comes up and you boss says "I'm Watching you" then its over and you already knew from the important cut scenes she's watching you. All in all the game is very good and i recommend you give it a try, and just for the people that thinks this game is worse than Midnight Club you are stupid. Midnight club has awful graphics and steering, what's the point of playing a racing game with bad steering and horrible graphics.There isn't one.
I fully recommend Need For Speed: Undercover

I recently read the IGN review of this game, which pretty much hits the nail on the head. Let me give you a quick rundown.

Story is awful, doesn't make sense, and is lame. The cut scenes/acting literally serves no importance. "Looks like we need to keep on with the mission. We will nail them soon" pretty much is every scene. There is absolutely no reason to explore the open world. Want to get to a race? Oh, just push down on the dpad and you're there. You can literally complete the whole game by racing, pushing down on dpad to go to next race, race again, push down on dpad again to next race, etc.

Oh, and the difficulty. IGN obviously didn't play the whole game, because it is true the first 2 hours are easy, but then the difficulty skyrockets to absurdity. The AI is perfect, never misses a corner, and even when they do, they'll catch up in no time. Also, your car seems to weigh nothing, while the AI are driving bulldozers. I restarted races more times than I can count.

The game's only highlight is the sense of speed. That's it. Customization is laughable, story is nonexistent, difficulty is ridiculous, and game is just plain awful. Do yourself a favor and play Midnight Club LA.
