Default The Better Game?

Thinking of buying a new game tomorrow not sure about what though, Chrome looked good in the demo and I feel like a good fps as well as a multiplayer. Then again I really want to get need for speed underground, anyone played both and can offer their opinions? BTW I played the nfs demo and thought it was great, also I have no car games and think this would be great to add to my collection

Any experiences like I said would be appreciated.

hm, Chrome is really not the best FPS out there, in fact it's pretty average.

If you like racegames, NFS:UG is certainly a nice game to have for PC. Very arcadish but fun and the underground mode takes a long time to play through.

If you prefer a FPS, try Chaser. Not the best FPS but for sure much better than Chrome.

Broken Sword 3 is a wonderful option if you like adventure games, this one being in complete 3D or try the new horror masterpiece Silent Hill 3 if you like to be scared.

Get NFSU. You wont regret it. I've been playing it alot lately so i could fully upgrade my customized car and take it online. My hands already hurt from doing the drifting challenges. I really liked this game and since you liked the demo you'll definitely enjoy the full game.

They are both pretty mediocre imho, you could do a lot better with your money. Max Payne 2 and Call of Duty spring to mind.

I'm super picky aobut games lately and Call of Duty is flat out a blast to play IMO. Some liken it to a shooting gallery although I think the AI is pretty impressive so far. You can always bump up the difficulty level as well.

Unfortunately both lack replayability. Both are great single player games, but are annoying short. CoD's MP is severely lacking as well. If he wants a game that won't end up just taking space on his drive, I'd suggest NFS:U out of those mentioned.

Do you have to be a big racing buff to like/get into NFS:U?
