Need for Speed is available on the iPhone

Mobile phones gaming website Pocket Gamer has given an excellent rating to the latest instalment in the Need for Speed series, which is available on Apple's iPhone.

Need For Speed Undercover, which puts the player in the role of an undercover cop busting criminals, was given an eight out of ten rating by the website.

Tracy Erikson, who wrote the review, described how the concept of driving around cracking down on crime "is pretty cool".

On top of this, he praised the game's handling, which requires the user to tilt the iPhone handset to steer the car.

He added that the street races, head to head challenges and individual take-downs offer plenty of gripping game-play potential for mobile phone gaming fans.

Erikson claimed: "It's not about the decals or neon lighting or the long legs and miniskirt sitting on the passenger seat. Any serious racer knows it's what's under your hood that counts."

This game, designed by Electronic Arts, apparently packs plenty of punch into a small mobile phone-sized parcel.
