EA brings the "heroic driving experience" to its popular Need For Speed franchise in Need for Speed: Undercover. Using the physics system form their ProStreet title, drivers can now pull off stunt-driver quality moves like bootlegger turns using throttle, gear shift, brakes and emergency brakes in combination. The in-game camera will pull back during these maneuvers to provide a cinematic view of the action for better situational awareness.

Set in the stunningly-rendered Tri-City Bay you are an undercover cop tasked by a government agency to go deep undercover in the local underground racing scene in order to bring down a crime syndicate – one leader at a time. Tri-City Bay is a huge open city featuring ports, downtown, residential and industrial areas and mountain roads among other environments. All of these are linked by a massive highway system with realistic traffic models – you can chase down your quarry at high speed, but you can also evade a foe by causing a big rig to jackknife across the highway as you continue your race onto a high school football field and through a mansion's marbled driveway.

Of course, such behavior attracts the attention of the local authorities and cinematic police chases have returned to the franchise. Your evasion skills will be put to the test as you try and elude the police helicopter. There is also plenty of racing action throughout the area to accompany the missions with the opportunity to earn cash to modify and upgrade the performance of your rides. The auto sculpting feature returns and the accidental body work that will occur in collisions will progressively deform the vehicles. Buckle up!

You never thought it would turn out like this—an all-out chase where you're the hunted. And the hunter.

Now you must get behind the wheel and risk everything to infiltrate a ruthless international crime syndicate and take them down.

The man you're after is a maniac behind the wheel, and he's driving like his life depends on escape, which maybe it does.

He's the one with all the answers you need, you will track him down.

Needless to say, that fleet of police cruisers in your rearview mirror won't make things any easier.

It will take all of your experience—and every ounce of skill—to outrun the law, take down the enemy, and unlock the truth that puts an end to this chase once and for all.

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible game

Pros: Its a racing game.

Cons: Runs horrible. Choppy, horrible FPS, and just flat out sucks. The way the game starts out it leaves you confused with the story line.

Other Thoughts: This was my first ever NFS game. I never got it because it looked like it was for people not looking for a simulator.

1 out of 5 eggsI do not recommend this game

Pros: The game has some cool cars and a much bigger map than previous Need for Speed games.

Cons: The wait time before the race is long, the game freezes so you have to reboote the PS3.

Other Thoughts: I think I will keep playing Need for Speed Most Wanted on my computer.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible gameplay.

Pros: Great 5.1 sound effects and decent music (even for video game music). Police chases are back! And that's about it.

Cons: Gameplay, framerate, etc. is absolute rubbish. It's choppy, it speeds up and slows down, and sometimes grinds to a halt. It plays like a low-spec'ed PC with all the settings cranked up. Poorly programmed. Hopefully there will be a patch or something released but I doubt it.

Other Thoughts: NFS Carbon and Pro Street both play flawlessly on my PS3. As does Burnout Paradise, Gran Turismo, Dirt, etc.

4 out of 5 eggsNot great, but not an epic failure like Pro street was

Pros: I like the outrun type races and the damage to state/ cop takeout races. nice graphics.

Cons: The traffic is very buggy, they will swerve or slam on the breaks every once and a while for no reason, I've even seen a few cars just flip up into the air like they slammed into a barrier, but there was nothing around. The handling is sloppy on most of the cars I've had, when you turn the rear end swings out from under you like they use rear wheel steering. EA didn't implement Trophies, but put in their own "achievements"

Other Thoughts: Not what I'd call a great game but still good, definitely a turn in the right direction for the series.
Kind of a mix between watching a movie and playing a video game at times.
EA seems a little too preoccupied with making money, like if you don't have the in-game money to buy a part, you can buy it through the PS store.
Newegg and ups get a negative rating on this one! newegg took 3 and a half days to get this shipped, ups took 5 days instead of 3 to get it here, and the driver was late delivering it, which normally wouldn't have been a big deal but it was supposed to be delivered the day before thanksgiving so i ended up having to wait 2 weeks after the release date to play this game, had I known I'd have driven an hour and picked it up at gamestop.

4 out of 5 eggsPretty good!

Pros: Great graphics, fast install/load times, smooth controls. You can morph all the body upgrades you buy. It reminds a lot of Most Wanted which i also liked.

Cons: The fps drops every once in awhile, but only for a second. Some of the shadows move as you drive by and stop if you stop driving. In my opinion its a little easy

Other Thoughts: 1up to Newegg! Got the game cheaper than anywhere else and it shipped free!

5 out of 5 eggsFinally, NFS is good again!

Pros: Street racing is back! This is the best thing about NFS!

The 'story mode' of the game is great, as it lets you build your racer up, giving you 'rep' for doing the usual stuff, new cars, new stuff. I LOVE this version of the game. THANK YOU EA!

Cons: $30 more for the PS3 version. Standard, but definitely a con!

Other Thoughts: I've been a NFS fan for years, starting with the Hot Pursuit title, and I LOVE the street racing aspect of this game. I've picked them up religiously for years, and missed the action in the last one. Finally, it's back, and that's just GREAT!
