What's New in Version 1.2.0
** Need For Speed™ Undercover now supports OS 3.0 **
I know that this game wasn't so hot on the other systems (PC, Xbox 360) and stuff. Hey, but the iphone version is majorly hot stuff. Look at the screenshots, you can freaking see logos on cars!!! The grahics are mind blowing for a hand held device. I would say this is proof that a iphone and ipod touch can be used for serious gaming. Look out PSP and DS. Whom ever said As*-fault 4 had amazing graphics must look stupid. Anyways, to accompany that the game play is also amazing and awesome. Before I was always neverous about buying racing games so many of them (Ferrair GT, Fastlane) it was more of a battle to keep the car on the road, as you kissed wall after wall. The controls on this game put me in heaven, it was so easy, so much fun to drive, (not teeth grindingly painful) and there were cool little features like slowing down time to make a last mintue dodge. It was so simple, it allowed you to focus on better parts of the game such as racing, traffic, and cops, oh Yeah! There is some hot cutscences to, with hot girls encouraging you to keep racing, as if you needed encouragement. The levels got challenging and the game, never let up it was a thrill ride. However I finished it in two days and now I wish there was a mutiplayer or more levels. Maybe for an update. This game is shot is worth 7 bucks, best game I bought for the iphone, (lots say that) but really, don't be a chump buy it you can not be disapointed.
Needs more control of the car!!
The only complaint that I have about this game is its lack of control, the autoaccelerate function is the worst idea I've ever heard of in a racing game, control your car by tilting it's not bad but there should be an alternative. And driving is not that realistic. I have a mechanic car (love it) and although I'm not asking for a clutch (A quite hard task in a racing game, most people would hate it) I do ask for control over the car, mechanic transmision would be cool but at least breaking, accelerating and more than one steering option are the necesary things for a good racing game on iphone or touch. I've played several NFS since NFS2 years ago (cool games all), and this is THE BAD one EA games have done better games that's why I've given them 3 stars, good graphics though.
pd for ea games (would they ever read this? :S): mechanical transmision is possible if steering is done by tilting, shifting gears on one side and accelerating and breaking on the other side :D. That would make me happy and I guess a bunch of racing games' players.
The game is perfect, the flaws are in the most important part, the interaction with the player, more control options would make this game a hit.
Need For Speed Undercover v. 1.2.0. Review
Need for Speed Undercover is definitely one of the best racers on the app store. The graphics would be gorgeous. but they do not currently support Retina Display (a must for fellow 4th gen. owners.) The controls are perfect, and I would go so far as to say all other racers should have the same. There are no on screen buttons, only a handful of easy to remember swipe motions. However, what really puts this game ahead of the competition is that there is actually an intellible story to follow, with races logically connected with acted cutscenes. furthermore, even after the story ends, there is an unlockable "drift" mode that will keep you occupied for awhile. To make a good game better, I have never experienced it crash on me while playing.
Verdict: Need for Speed Undercover is definitely worth the price of a McDonalds meal, as the fact that there is a story mode vaults it past the competition. If there is one main con, it would have to be the lack of Retina Display graphics. Coming from someone who owns more than 200 games, this is worth the price of admission.
