Wow-wee!!! I was shopping (with my mum) at Merry Hill the other day and she let me go off on my own for half an hour - i was so thrilled 'coz it mean't i could do whatever i want. So i went to HMV and had a look at what they had on their demo pods. Oh. My. GOD!!!!!!!
That's right, they had the new Need For Speed: Undercover game, it was amazing!!!!!! What i couldn't understand though, was the fact that no-one else was playing either of the X-Box's set up with this amazing game - come on people, it's the brand new game in the world's best racing game franchise!!!!! Anyway, i played on it for ages, it's fantastic!!!!!!!!!!!
The first thing i noticed was the amazing graphics; the whole game world was so unique and amazing and i've never seen any game with these sorts of street racing ever before!!!!!! Well, except for Midnight Club 3.
And Burnout Paradise.
And Fast And The Furious.
And every other Need For Speed game from the last 6 years - but this was even cooler than all of those put together times 1 million-squillion, seriously!!!!!!!!
And i loved all the cars, they were amazing!!!!!!! They had every car i've ever dreamed of wanting when i can afford one, like the WV Golf and some Nis-suns and everything - most of these cars were in the last Need For Speed game, and the one before that, and the one before that, but when you pay £40 for a game no-one likes changes and surprises, do they? That's why i ask for every Need For Speed game every year for Christmas, 'coz i know what i'm getting - brilliant!!!!!!
Another amazing thing about Need For Speed: Underground was the difficulty. I'm amazing at games but this made me look even more amazing 'coz the difficulty level was really low and i could beat all the opponents on every track first time!!!! As well as this, the game makes it easier for me still by not having much traffic on the roads too. That's amazing, it was so stupid to have civilian cars on a public road in a game anyway!!!! EA have done an amazing job this year - at least it means i can finish the game as fast as possible and see the ending as soon as possible, brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!
The final thing i noticed about the game was the stuttering the game developers had managed to fit into the game - if you play using the chase cam (no-one likes the camera when you can't see the car, it makes the game too hard and unrealistic!!!!!) the frame rate drops, making everything stutter and stuff - how cool is that?!?!?!?!?!? It must've taken them aaaaaaaaaaages to come up with that idea and i can't believe no-one else has tried it before - wow-wee!!!!!!
So anyway, i'm definitely gonna ask Father Christmas for Need For Speed: Underground this year, it's the best game i've played all year and i'm sure it'll get reviewed really highly and get 10/10 and stuff!!!!!
I just hope i'm allowed it 'coz i was late back meeting my mum and now i'm grounded for a week.....

D'oh - just noticed the smiley on the title, made from the '8' and the ')' used for the date, as well as the site link is corrupted due to the ')' at the end of it - i would be eternally grateful if an admin could fix those for me! Comment edited by Mark Radon on 12/1/2008
Need for speed underground .gif" border=0 alt="">. I think that guy meant about undercover, but typod. BTW I don't think this is good to be in articles, this is more like forum post... Comment edited by NeoMonkey on 12/2/2008
Yeah he did mean Undercover - good spot! Why can't it go in the article section - it's an article! It's supposed to be a light-hearted article for the yule-tide season, poking fun at the 'casual gamer' who buys the same franchise year after year (in this case, Need For Speed), regardless of quality or reviews.
And it was influenced by someone i work with who shall remain nameless! It's not written about him but he did inspire me to write it Comment edited by Mark Radon on 12/2/2008
