When we announced the availability of Need for Speed Undercover for BlackBerry 10 I did a little fist pump in my head. Yes, weird I may be but I was super excited. And although the game has been around for ages on the BlackBerry PlayBook and other operating systems it really is a great addition to BlackBerry World arsenal of games and I'm sure it will rocket to the top of the charts.

If driving games are your thing then you will want to part with your cash for this one. The game looks absolutely stunning on the BlackBerry Z10's display and having such an awesome game with you at all times is one of the things that makes a smartphone great in my opinion.

Priced at $2.99/£2.00 Need for Speed Undercover offers great value for money. Yes, it's a shame it isn't free like it was on the PlayBook but you can't have everything.

  • All new quick race mode: Want to take a break from the story? Try Quick Race mode and race any of the 20 cars from the Tri City area before you unlock them. Step outside your career and instantly race any unlocked track.
  • 8 Challenging race modes: Power through Head-to-Head Action, Highway Battle, Cop Takeout, and more. Race undercover in 24 covert missions.
  • 3 Unique Environments: Push your car to the limit as you burn through exhilarating cityscapes, snaking countrysides, and gritty seaside docks.  
  • Customize your vehicle: Trick out your ride with aftermarket spoilers, multiple wheel options, body kits, and cool paint schemes.  
  • Incredible racing visuals: Sweeping camera angles and gnarly car crash sound effects heighten your driving experience.  
  • Earn performance upgrades: Punch it with extras like Boost, Speed, Acceleration, and Handling.

QuIcKsIlV3r

how about deleting "woo first" and putting "very nice game..good graphics.." instead of woo first....

avatsaev

^how not to be a faggot

QuIcKsIlV3r

ugh... why all the stupidity of "woo first" or "1st" or whatever? I thought the crackberry nation was better than posting up "First"

My faith in humanity is dwindling fast...

Come on, have some fun and live a little.

not a fan of having to buy this since I have the playbook version which is free...

aloofkid

James are the features listed in this post are the same with the PlayBook?

QuIcKsIlV3r

no, you can't play quick race mode on the PB version

mscloutier

Quick race mode is a feature on the PlayBook.

It's a good game but I'm not gonna pay to play it on a smaller screen. I'm fine with the playbook version :) asphalt 7 on the other hand is worth the purchase!

I must be the only one who hates driving games. Last good one was f-zero for the super Nintendo.

Both the N64 Fzero and the GameCube ones were great. The GameCube one is slick as anything, and a lot more polished, sega did such a great job with FZERO-X it is a shame it was on such an unpopular system.

Although it's a shame it isn't free you PlayBook owners must remember that BlackBerry Z10 owners will already out number PB ones so chances are this will do well.

Plus it is a great game.

thats why they should do what other devs do allow people that already own it on a BBID to have a free download to it on z10 fine to charge for it nothing against it. I just feel its better that for some who have at least downloaded it and played it to get it for free :P.

SEAWARRIOR

i agree w/ nameless,,, if you already have it on 1 (one) device, you should be able to download/play it on all on that platform,,, i.e. playbook>BB,,, aphone>atab,etc...

It's partly paying for it on a smaller screen, yes, but it's also paying for it on a more comfortable controller interface. To me it's worth it because it's a more comfortable control set than the playbook especially with an HDMI cable for a big screen.

I know I can accomplish the same thing with my playbook but the z10 is a better controller form-factor. Now if only we had a wireless HDMI dongle to make it even more comfortable.

Crazy reading about those who cannot part a couple of dollars to purchase this game.

I purchased it because its a great game on the Playbook, it was FREE, I would of paid for it but I feel as though I was given a full trial period, as my way of saying thanks, I've purchased it for the Z10.

Hopefully if others like me make it worth while for EA, they will bring more titles to the Z10, such as Need for Speed, Most Wanted, which has FAR better graphics than Undercover (Android game), and I know the Z10 can handle the performance after playing Asphalt 7 (which by the way for you tight s*its, it costs money, you know... the thing that goes to pay wages for developers and designers to create these apps)

it's a fun game. worth the 3 bucks.

That was a promotion for the PlayBook. Likely the game is a little more robust with 2GB of RAM.

Not working on fido/rogers... installation error.

We can't always get everything free! :D
So pay up and enjoy!

This game looks so dark. Are all the locations this dark? The scene behind the phone in the picture above the article looks a lot lighter.

Removed from BB World for Z10- If you bought it, hope you had it backed up or it's gone forever. - Yeah Blackberry?

andalex

I agree. I upgraded my Z10 with new OS 10.1 and I was unable to reload this game, which I purchased in March. It does not appear in My Blackberry World either. I was able to reload/reinstall all my other apps, except this one....

Any idea what happened?

EA pulled the app without notice and without offering refunds. Contact BB. There is a thread about it in the forums with the link.

Again CB moderators - could you please reach out to EA for comment or apology?
