A HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT FOR NFS FANS
I am a fan of Need for Speed series and I have been loving this game since Most Wanted and Carbon.. I didn't really like it when ProStreet came out and I got even more disappointed with Undercover. First, I didn't believe why people have been badmouthing this game and I gave it a try, which I eventually would regret.
Okay, so I have been playing all my games on my PS3 smoothly, with beautiful graphics, and glorious sound. One thing I really hate about this game is its bugs and glitches. The game is very laggy at times when you play it, very often that it starts to annoy you and you wouldn't blame the PS3 of course. And it is not because of the disc, cos I am buying it brand new. Then at times during racing, the scenery in front of you will be a clear sky like when you are going to go down a hill, NOT. It is actually a graphical glitch! makes me really wonder why this can happen at this game using PS3. It's embarrassing playing this game on PS3! So first you think you are going downhill, when seconds later the road suddenly pops out and it's a sharp turn that you will not be able to make unless using the speed-braker.
Then I can't tolerate how the visual performance and quality using PS3 and HDTV is so mediocre! And it is really slow in loading the game. Everytime you enter an event or trying to access your car, tuning your engine, and any other activities, you are going to face the very slow loading screen that's annoy me so much that most of the time I can't really get myself play this game cos of its slow load. Can you imagine how dreadful it is to tune and test drive your car if the game has to load so slow after we make some minor adjustment?
For me, for my fellow EA and NFS lovers, avoid this version, like how we have avoided ProStreet. Let's just hope that EA and Blackbox can do better with the next version, SHIFT.Read full review
