IGN writes: "Need for Speed Undercover is a great-looking racer that I think a lot of iPhone-playing speedsters will enjoy. Like Gameloft's Assassin's Creed, it really does raise the bar for what is possible on the platform. This is a console game on an iPhone. However, there is no multiplayer in Need for Speed Undercover, which doesn't necessarily bother me in this case, but I think that game would benefit from some global ranking system or a way to show off, such as the YouTube video uploads in Fast & Furious. The lack of control calibration is also too bad, especially since the drift controls are not always easy to engage. Priced at $9.99, I can recommend Need for Speed Undercover primarily for hardcore racing game fans".
