    Demo played extremely smooth. Couple things are lame but the graphics looked good. Likes: Capability to Explore, plenty of weapons cache
    Dislikes: Massive Rush of Dead Zombies.. Poof appear out of nowhere. Can't seem to carry more then 1 anything.

    Taz, zombie hordes appear when you shoot on of the fat ones, or set off a car alarm of whatever.

    Boomer
    The fat, slow Boomer vomits a thick bile with two side effects: It blinds Survivors, and it attracts hordes of Infected. When Boomers are killed, they explode, showering bile on anyone nearby. Get close to Survivors when attacking. Even if you miss, they might not.

    As I recall, there was a point in the game's development where once you died, you would spawn as one of the 4 different uber-zombies and then could go after your former partners. Nothing I have seen in recent reviews mentions this, though, so I don't know if that is still part of the game, or if even playing as a zombie is either. If anyone has more info on this, please post!

    Need for Speed Undercover Races Into Stores

    REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – November 18, 2008 – Black Box, a studio of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS), announced that Need for Speed™ Undercover is available at retailers today in North America and on November 21 in Europe. Need for Speed Undercover is an action-packed game whose story of pursuit and betrayal takes players back to the series’ roots with break-neck cop chases, spectacular highway battles and an expansive open-world.



    Need for Speed Undercover features stunning Hollywood-style live-action in-game movies in which the player is recruited by Federal Agent Chase Linh, played by Maggie Q (Mission Impossible III and Live Free or Die Hard), to go deep undercover in order to infiltrate and takedown a ruthless international crime syndicate. Posing as a wheelman, the player will be required to prove themselves by completing jobs, racing through speedways, dodging cops and chasing rivals.



    Need for Speed Undercover also features its signature real-world damage and car customization for over 55 of the hottest licensed vehicles including the Mercedes-Benz SL65 AMG, Audi R8, Porsche 911 GT2 and the all-new unreleased 2009 Nissan 370Z.


    The all-new Heroic Driving Engine delivers an unprecedented level of control allowing the player to execute incredible high-performance moves at 180 mph. The player will need to master the Heroic Driving Engine in order to evade the cops and take out opponents while navigating over 100 miles of open roads, including an expansive highway system. These causeways are the setting for the high-speed, high-stake chase sequences that will push the player to the limit. An enhanced new A.I. mechanic delivers a realistic high-energy action driving experience with ultra-aggressive and intelligent cops using actual high-speed pursuit techniques to take the player

    That actually sounds kinda of interesting. I suppose it depends on how well it was done. What's the hardware requirements?

    Well the cars drive great and there are plenty of different kinds of races. The Menu's are a bit lame. On first start up it takes you right to your car driving. Click ESC. to bring up Menu's and set Options. Even getting around in the Menu's are a bit tricky at first. Graphics are Pretty good just have to play more to get hang of whats going on. There is no Safe House like in Most Wanted.. There is a Garage, I suppose after you win some and earn some money it becomes available..

    OK all to explore more..

    Initial thoughts: I'm not impressed with graphics or drivability. It might just take some getting used to or tweaking, but I was really hoping for a slightly prettier Most Wanted with newer cars and better AI, doesn't look like its happening tho. I just unlocked the first set of upgrades and I'm driving the Lotus Elise. Going to bed now. Another 12 hour work day ahead of me :rolleyes:
