One that got away: NFS Undercover (WP)

Have you ever had one of those easy achievement games for one reason or another, you never got to finish. The one game that continues to haunt your completion list, every time you look at it.

Enter Need for Speed: Undercover for the Windows Phone.

I originally bought the game on my Windows 7 phone, while it was on sale. I was even more excited because it was supposedly easy. So after the install, I booted it up, ran through tutorial, and popped my first achievement.

"Cool" I probably said to myself. Ill save this game for a rainy day (or maybe when EMT got close to me).

So it was stowed away, and a series of unfortunate events will keep it in limbo.

I upgraded my phone to the Nokia 920 that has Windows Phone 8 OS on it, which isnt compatible with NFS Undercover.

"No problem, you still have you Windows 7 phone" you may be saying, which I admit, I do, but with a very busted screen.  No more than a week after getting my new phone, my old I917,  met the cold hard concrete surface in my in laws house, shattering my rainy day hopes of completing this game, and all the others for that matter.

I lost a bunch of money when I upgraded because a lot of titles aren't compatible with Windows 8 phone, nor will they ever be.

Everytime I check my TA easy achievement list, Undercover laughs at me, always to be incomplete, and always to be the one that got away.
