Need for Speed: Undercover is the twelfth installment in the series of racing games from Electronic Arts. It was developed by the Canadian branch of the company, and breaks up with the idea of legal track racing, which was presented to the customers in ProStreet, and moves back to the underworld. This product is the first title in the series which appeared not only on personal computers and consoles, but also on iPhones.
Rather than throw players right in the vortex of the struggle for the title of king of street racing, the developers put special emphasis on the story with the aim to introduce the customers to the world of drivers who are struggling in the competition on the edge of the law. The story of Undercover is told by means of cutscenes with real actors. Among the cast we can find Christina Milian, a singer who portrays the beautiful Carmen.
The developers from the Vancouver studio also made sure that players have an adequate number of well-known brands of cars designed for driving with deadly speed and susceptible to tuning - both optical and mechanical. Need for Speed: Undercover traditionally offers improved graphic design and a rich soundtrack created by the participation of artists from around the world.
