EA released Need For Speed: Undercover on all major platforms last week, and here's the beginning of the game in video form. As a developer, you have a big amount of money, (semi-)celebrities lined up and a cool idea - what do you do? You ruin the game by sinking the framerate. Because even though this is the fourth NFS game in this generation, they still managed to mess up one of the most vital things for a racer.
It's worth pointing out that I played the Xbox 360 version, and surprise - the Playstation 3 version supposedly performs even worse.
The police is highly involved in this game. With that, you have an open city to drive around in filled with events. Though when you race, the free roaming is gone and you have barriers on the track, practically making it just like any other street racer out there. Not to mention that the traffic drives through these barriers like they don't exist.
Now and then you see video sequences, performed by actors. It's often a bit cheesy and they sometime use confusing camera angles (you'll see some constant zooming in the video here).
The multiplayer adds a bit of fun to it all though, with the cops & robbers mode. Overall there are many licensed vehicles and big areas to race around in, but the technical aspect just drags it all down. Enjoy the First 10 Minutes of the game below, where I take on two races and have some fun with the police.
The duel mode in Quake Champions is like.. King of Fighters. (2 Hours ago)
Going to pick up Puyo Puyo Tetris and Binding of Isaac next. Then Mario Kart. Maybe Splatoon 2. (9 Hours ago)
Yeah, I'll be bolloxed if I'm hunting for 800 koroks or whatever it is. At least the shrines offer a decentish reward. (10 Hours ago)
I doubt I'll try to 100% Zelda, but I can already tell that it's a very big game. (11 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: One for my desk and one for my livingroom. It would also be convenient to have a portable dongle. Part of the beauty of the device is portability. (11 Hours ago)
Doing it that way before going to Ganon should take you in the region of about 100 hours, minimum. I only just finished the game 3 days ago. Nearly 8 weeks of hammering the game. (12 Hours ago)
@GriftGFX:Zelda will keep you occupied for a brave while. If, you're like myself, you'll want to take in everything Hyrule has to offer by exploring everything (12 Hours ago)
