Need for Speed: Undercover – Internet’s screenies populating
Everyone and their mother is aware that Need for Speed: Â Undercover is coming soon to the iPhone platform and that release is ~about~ a month away. Â It looks fab and knowing EA – their flagship racer will not be put too early to the App Store and in no way will they let it fall behind the competition. Â It will be the new Messiah App for the iPhone – or it will be the last straw. Â There is much hope riding on this app that has until now been the recipient of a mishmash of reviews that are not inspiring the greatest of confidence in fans for the iPhone version. Â
From early screenies and videos that have littered the internet, Undercover is easily the best looking iPhone App to date. Â I’m betting EA’s assets that it will also be the best engineered racing app even well past release. Â However, controls, physics and presentation subsets like graphics do not make a great game. Â The iPhone is not a workhorse or vacuum cleaner like the XBOX 360 nor the efficient and beautiful moneypit like the PS3. Â It is a well-designed portable with class and I hope that the lackluster level design of the console versions will be rethought and tooled for the iPhone. Perhaps that is what months-long wait has been about. Â Thanks to Appbank for the screenies.
