Need for Speed Undercover is one of EA Mobile's best racers. The variety of events and the constantly escalating challenge kept me coming back to it. As mentioned, I was repeatedly reminded of other racing games, but that didn’t detract from my experience. The game runs smoothly (solid 3D) and controls well with the exception of the Speedbreaker/drift button issue. I have not played the console game so I cannot make any sort of comparison (but it looks like our Chris Roper didn't think much of it), but if you like racing games, you now have three very good options for your mobile: NFS, Asphalt, and Fast and Furious. That in itself is pretty cool.
