I can't even begin to describe how happy I am I didn't blow $60 on this game, but I'm a little said I spent $10.
Need for Speed: Undercover is an arcade-style racing game that takes place in the fictious tri-city. Bascially, the entire map is of three different cities linked by a massive highway system. The story involves you, the driver, being undercover in order to dismantle an illegal crime syndicate. And that's where the fun ends. Yes, before it even starts.
For one, the game just looks awful. As I ran the game on high, the street constantly looks like it rained five minutes before the race even began. This, along with many many aspects of the game, gets old very quickly. Another thing I don't like is the glaring sun. The game looks as if it takes place at either an hour or so after sunrise, or sunset. Never midday, a time point where you don't have to worry about the sun making it almost impossible to not only see where you're going right in front of you, but to also see where you're going on the mini-map. Because of it's light-blue shade, anytime the sun in the game is anywhere near your screen, you're not going to be able to see it.
The acting is another abysmal part of the game. It's disappointing that the only thing I actually look forward to in cutscenes is to see how attractive Maggie Q looks, because I can always see that for free on the internet.Read more ›
This is a well known scheme based on a custom-made augmented version of SecuROM 7+, used for over a year now (from BioShock to Mass Effect, Dead Space and Red Alert 3) and it has been proven to offer overall...zero protection from piracy. But, of course, fighting piracy was never amongst its aims.
SecuROM is NOT a Digital Rights Management system but rather a spyware subroutine that unavoidably comes bundled with most major game releases. It borrows into the Root of our systems, masking itself from the System Manager and refuses to be removed - even after one completely uninstalls the game it came with. SecuROM is indeed used as a cloaked dataminer, gathering information on the system and its user's activities and sending them to its mothership. It is the method the industry's behemoths chose to pave the way for their coveted Pay-per-Play future.
Turning our own PCs into their...insatiable coiners is what the gaming executives are having wet dreams about. Games that we will have to keep paying for again and again.
And that is where the idea of Limited Activations comes ins: not only it nullifies the value of a game once bought, killing the second-hand market overnight, but it also familiarizes gamers to the idea of having to buy the same game over and over in order to keep playing it.
NEED FOR SPEED was a series I loved in the past and would love to keep playing in the future once the DRM idiocies get resolved. But not at this price.
Some people are indifferent to these issues - and I respect that.Read more ›
