Need for Speed: The Run


The setup for The Run was practically pre-written; take Cannonball Run...and that's pretty much it. Visually, it's standard, while the audio is somewhere in between - the soundtrack is used well, but the voiceovers are some of the worst of the year.

Think of the trainer as your mechanic for your copy of the Run, even if the game itself doesn't let you change much.

Need For Speed: The Run


A coast-to-coast racing game takes too many shortcuts.

The Run operates with a surprising amount of swagger, as if it’s a better game than the miserly experience it actually is. While racing around San Francisco early in the game, an alarmingly large font instructs players “GET TO LAS VEGAS!” It’s hard not...

Review: Need for Speed The Run is Quick Time Uneventful


Black Box takes the Need for Speed series back to its roots for an occasionally thrilling race across the USA.

A skintight-jumpsuit-clad Catherine Bach hoists open the door of a white Lamborghini Countach, pastes the number "155" over the speed limit sign, and then turns to offer a cheeky wave to the pursuing highway patrolman before slinking back into her...

Need for Speed Undercover


The series remains in cruise control. The Need for speed series has had a rocky road recently. It seems that ever since the introduction (and a bit before) the release...

Nice selection of cars ; Very well paced ; Cop chase mode is back in full effect

Serious frame rate issues ; Story loses steam quickly ; All cars handle similarly

Need For Speed Undercover (Wii) Review


Can this game entice newcomers to enjoy the speed, or should it just remain undercover?

Need for Speed Undercover


Recent Need for Speed titles have left a bad taste in the mouth for a lot of fans of the series. Whilst Electronic Art's other franchise Burnout has gone from strength to strength, Need for Speed has been in need for a make over. Thankfully I can say...

Need for Speed Undercover


You, a largely unidentified Caucasian male, work for an investigative agency that needs a “deniable asset”: That's essentially somebody that the agency can send deep undercover with no ties to the agency itself. If the asset – that's you – is...

Undercover doesn’t cover any new ground, and the campy cutscenes – which are a better motivator than earning higher-tier vehicles – lose sight of the game’s pace car. The police chases are knowingly the high point, but even those grow subdued through...

Need for Speed Undercover


A ND4SPD best left 4 dead

Nice arcade racing mechanics ; Looks pretty in a Michael Bay way ; Stacks on the challenges

Dumb, lazy story ; Time-wasting "free roaming ; Just not exciting

Really, Undercover is exactly what anyone who’s watched from afar would guess that a Need for Speed game is like. It’s repetitive, it’s forgettable, it’s cynical and sweet Jeebus it’s dumb. It’s also kinda fun – but when GRID’s still flexing its manly...

Need for Speed Undercover (Xbox 360)


Who on earth is this terrible game supposed to be for? The target audience certainly isn't gamers with next-generation systems whose frame of reference will be titles like Burnout Paradise, MotorStorm and the superlative Midnight Club: Los Angeles....

This review is based on a retail copy of the game provided by the publisher.

Need for Speed: Undercover


Let's not beat around the bush, the Need For Speed franchise has been on a steady decline for some time now with each title since Most Wanted falling away in to oblivion. Fair enough, Carbon wasn't a bad game, but ProStreet sure was; what were EA...

Undercover is definitely a step in the right direction and if it wasn't for the horrible design issues (buggy GPS, frame rate issues and dodgy AI), the game would be scoring closer to the 80's. It's ultimately these design issues that spoil what is a...

Product Specifications

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.
