J-2 ES (1039)

2008-11-21 21:10

It´s a disappointment. A cruel disappointment.

It´s all the same...UN, UN2, MW, PS, Carbon, Undercover...

Bad optimized, bugs filled, boring, SO, so arcadish...

It´s a shame BMW and Porsche until now signed exclusivity forms with EA, they wasted their models.

Worse, you can believe me, i have played all the NFS ever made, and this is one of the worst.

After trying to make something "different" with PS, now they recycled MW with new cars, new city and better graphics, it´s doens´t have any originallity at all.

When i played this game the other night on my Xbox (only rented thankfully) and to say this honestly I felt sickened that a company like EA can produce something so bad and get away with it. I felt like vomiting so i returned it and played Pro Street again much better.

CrazyCars EN (13)

2008-11-27 19:40

So, have EA stuffed it again or have they re-lighted the Need for Speed name after a trio of below-par games?

When i get my PS3, i have no interest of spending a penny of my hard earned cash on this :/

J-2 ES (1039)

2008-11-27 22:17

NFS is stucked since Underground.

They should remake NFS V: Porsche Unleashed, the best NFS in my oppinion, in fact, i still play it, 8 years after its release...

Undercover, in the other way, is now erased from my PC, i played for a while, i made the pics for this page, and...gone.

It´s a waste of good graphics and good cars, that´s for sure.

Well i don't like this game at all, even though i'm a classic NFS fan i have 2 say that Underground 1 was the better if-not the best NFS games of one of NFS franchises. In my opinion i say NFS went downhill after Underground 2 or Most Wanted.

Star Wars Fanatic EN (494)

Despite the negative reception towards Undercover, EA have announced that a further three Need For Speed titles are to be released this year - Need For Speed: Shift for the current generation platforms, Need For Speed: Nitro for DS and Wii and Need For Speed: World Online for PC.

2009-04-02 05:20

Mind your distance when doing the missions involving defeating the cops (cop takeout, escape, etc.), especially if you're low on cash, because in level 12 and higher, they can really be vicious. Twice they took away my BMW M3 (although both tines i got it back), plus they almost got my S5. If you're inevitably gonna be captured, or if they trap you, the only way to save your cash and car if if you shut off the game before you press "accept".

I made the mistake of buying this for the Wii, which is an even worse version than the next gen consoles.

I've nearly completed the game 100% and still no sign of the GT-R, 370Z, Evo X, Mégane Coupé, and a few others. I've not seen the police GT-R in the game, either.

Yes, I liked it when I first got it for christmas last year. I liked the action driving experience and good graphics. . I liked and still like the car list which included the Bugatti Veyron and the at the time newly released Renault Megane Coupe. But time passed and I played other games and when I got back to it I found it to be a lifeless, drab experience. I recently started a new game on this and I haven't played it since.
It also only gets good after about 50% completion of the game. I got many Glitches before and after I completed the game. My favorite one was where the whole world dissappeared after unpausing the game and my car started falling at 700 kmh! This game got real boring and glitchy and I thus Abandoned it.

Its very strange, NFS undercover its so bad in PS3/ X360 but is very good on PS2 :??: The driving sensation is similar to NFS carbon and Pro Street did'nt based from Burnout Paradise like THE Ps3 / x360 version.

Well there is also some kind of 911 GT3 but might be a racing version since it had racing wheels, I would need to import the model again and check. The developers planned more cars like Buick GNX but if you open the files of it then you get a 60's Camaro actually

EA doesnt do games, they only publish. Their subsidiaries and sub-companies are the developers.

But EA only gave Black Box one year to do this game. So they couldn't put everything in.

And on this page, developer should be changed to EA Black Box.

AutoTracker US (59)

2015-11-26 00:31

I don't like it as well. It's a bit too hard since you have to find shops to unlock performance upgrades, and the physics are atrocious. It seems like you bounce off everything, such as AI cars, traffic cars, etc. And the AI rubber banding system catches them up very quickly. I'm stuck on the early stages of the game with an Escort, doing everything I can, but nothing works.

Tuppence870 UK (68)

2015-11-26 00:56

Honestly one of my least favourite games of all time. Buggy as hell, empty open world, awful AI, awful music, awful physics and no attempt at realistically representing car performance. Every race could be won by just not crashing, but one accident and you'd have no chance, unless of course your car falls through the world or the console freezes up, which was often the case.

Burn Rubber US (347)

2015-11-26 01:10

@Tuppence870

My thoughts exactly. Physics were the worst ever. Traffic was ripped from Burnout Paradise, story had TOO MANY PLOT HOLES, Cars aren't even that great, Soundtrack sucked ass (not right for racing), It was so bad. (Sorry Racediver43) But I thought it was a Most Wanted wannabe, It was a poorly done Most Wanted. (But MW/Carbon has bad driving too) all n all, 0/10

2015-11-26 01:30

Automotive Gaming IT (32)

2015-11-26 02:50

Regarding physics, this game has the best ones between:
- Most Wanted 2005
- Carbon
- Pro Street
- Undercover
MW 2005 ones are the worst.
About AI, Undercover rubberband is very frustrating, even for a skilled player.

AutoTracker US (59)

2015-11-26 02:55

I actually don't mind Carbon and ProStreet's physics, since on Carbon there is more room for error and the rubber banding isn't as great. On ProStreet it's basically the same as well as the events being very easy on that game (at least in my opinion). I don't really know about MW2005's physics, since I don't remember playing it much.

I always thought the PS2 version was the best version of this game because it was just like MW 2005 and Carbon, had a mode where you can play as the police and get Credits for raming racers off the road, the car list from Carbon with 1 or 2 new cars and even has Rockport (well a modified version of Rockport with half the map being new and split up)

Well they would've been fitting, but this game is more about flying down the highway at 150+ MPH with a car you bothered to spend the time working on.

And one thing I didn't like was that the cars didn't have varied customization options. In Need for Speed: Most Wanted, cars had lots of body kits to choose from. Need for Speed: Carbon had fun mix and matching body kits.

What I liked about this game:


-Tri-City Bay


What I hated about this game:


-The bad car list
-The eye-soaring graphics
-The fact that the big city is empty. VERY EMPTY.
-I don't like it how Black Box used Burnout Paradise traffic cars. They should've used Carbon's traffic cars and make them more detailed.
-The police are too hostile. In NFSMW, as far as I remember, the cops wouldn't care if you drove slow in front of them.

-The car list isn't actually half bad considering most games now... MC:LA's car list WAS going to be good, but it was pretty bad to be honest.
-I personally don't care for graphics, and focus more on gameplay, but, this could be something under the fault of EA. You never know.
-They don't add pedestrians to NFS games, but I will say, the least they could've done is added parked cars.
-I don't think it was Black Box's choice to do so. EA might've shoved it down their throats, knowing a lot of people talk about bad game-making experiences with them. If you want to see them, and part of Rockport, might I recommend the PS2 version.
-IF your car is brand new, just like in MW, I don't think they care. If you have any wanted level, it's chase on sight. They've done that since MW, too.

The only bad thing about this game was the difficulty level. You were starting with some old Nissan and yet it could outrun the newer/better cars.

This whole GAME was bad IMHO. Well, The Burnout traffic was cool.

The best version is probably the PS2 version. Good car physics, good car list, good traffic, etc.

I'd have to disagree. The PS2 version is nothing more than another Most Wanted or Carbon.

A few exclusive cars is the only thing the PS2 has over other platforms. I mean, The cars drive even shittier on the PS2 version. That's not saying much though. All versions of this game have bad driving physics. If for some reason you wanted to go back to Rockport and have weird looking traffic I guess you'd want the PS2 port...

My review on the PC version:


Cars:


Cars are really well-modeled. The way the cars drive is okay, but the sense of speed is boring once you reach your top speed. You can't make your car go any faster with nitrous when you're at full speed.


Music:


The most fitting racing music was the D&B songs. I like Underworld's menu songs. The rap song by Tyga wasn't fitting but it was a good song of him. Both Spanish songs (Piedras vs. Tanques and God Damn) didn't fit for racing.


City:


Biggest city in the NFS series! That's awesome! Newer NFS games cannot even be bigger than Tri-City Bay! The lowdown was that the traffic was lifted from Burnout Paradise.


Events and Jobs:


Some events were easy-peasy and some had an annoying rubberbanding Porsche. The jobs, well, some were a little too Crash Time-esque. I would never install the latest patch, there is no crack and I heard all AI will rubberband you.


The verdict:


I give the PC release of NFSUC a 6/10. When good employees of Black Box left (It's true, that did happen. Check some Black Box employees' (like Russell Rice's) LinkedIn profiles.), NFS started to go downhill, but NFSUC was not a bad title.

Dodge Viper R/T and Murcielago Roadster from cutscenes are missing. Sorry I don't have the pictures.
