Need for Speed Undercover finally races past the finish line as Xbox Live Deal of the Week

Need for Speed: Undercover

It’s a great week for Windows Phone gamers. Not only do we get a terrific new release, but the Deal of the Week is a game that’s never been on sale before. Need for Speed: Undercover, a launch title from Electronic Arts is finally on sale for $2.99, down from $4.99.

Now, I wasn’t much impressed with the more recent NFS title, Hot Pursuit – see my review. But Undercover isn’t bogged down with endless grinding or absurd difficulty. It’s just fast racing in beautiful licensed cars, as you’d expect from the series. Just look at our review; it’s pretty glowing.

On top of the smooth tilt controls and solid 3D graphics, the game boasts one other fine quality: easy Achievements. Just note that the Achievements require a Wi-Fi connection to unlock, as was the case with a few early Xbox Live releases.

What do you guys think – is Need for Speed: Undercover the best car-racing game on Windows Phone, or has the recently-released Asphalt 5 taken the mantle? Me, I can’t get too much of a good thing, so more racers are always welcome.

Need for Speed: Undercover is on sale for $2.99/ €2.99 for one week only. Pick it up here on the Marketplace, gearheads.

This NFS is far superior to the second one. Worth it.

sholokov says:

Whoever wanted to buy this NFS would have already bought it. I guess this Deal is only good for people buying phones now.

Gemini Ace says:

I've had my phone since day 1 and have been waiting on a deal on this game specifically. 

Stimolo says:

I have my phone for more than a year now and bought it, simply because I had more than enough games to play and because it is worth the price now.

sam_1204 says:

The more racing type premium games the better.! But I'm wondering when will we WP users be able to play games like Tekken and Street Fighter style of games on our phones.?

when wp8 come out...those are the type of games I've been salivating for

sam_1204 says:

I think that would be great.!! But I hope WP7 users would still be able to play those and not just WP8 users if ever.

Are those games any good on touch screen devices ?!
I had to buy an arcade stick for my 360, since the game pad felt unnatural, let alone no buttons at all.

sam_1204 says:

To me it's alright, I had Street Fighter for iPhone(an iPhone user before WP) and lots of people purchased it from the App Store. I can still do combos and special attacks on it using the touchscreen controls (though admittedly physical device controls are still better) but for the whole experience - not bad at all imo.

TechAbstract says:

Yes Street Fighter IV on iPhone has very good graphics and controls.

Have to try it, though those quarter circles should be awkward.

aeronaught says:

If I see one more bad pun as a title...

djctz says:

Loved it! Its worth $4.99 so $2.99 is a great deal!

EvilT1 says:

not one single up date since release. i hate EAgames

carlosrdd says:

Downloaded the trail does this game not have voice over ? It's looks like it does but I can't hear anything.

nrask7 says:

Just bought it...

Luke Spook says:

just went to buy this game and it's priced back at £3.99? Doesn't the deal of the week last for  well... a week? :/
