Trailer for racing video game Need for Speed: Undercover, starring Asian American actress Maggie Q. She will feature in the game as an inspector who helps the player (an undercover police officer) in various tasks. To be released in November 2008 by Electronic Arts.
Undercover is the 12th instalment of Need for Speed, a popular racing video game series which dates back to 1994. While most of the games in the franchise include police pursuits in some form, this new release seems to take it to another level by using it as a main plot.
I’ve only played High Stakes (1999) out of the series, which was decent. I’m not a huge fan of the genre though; what piqued my interest back then was that the cars were modelled after actual cars, which was kinda cool. The setting has become a norm for racing games these days.
