Difference between NFS Shift and Undercover? Which is better?

I don't really want two NFS titles but what are the differences between the two and which one would you recommend? I want to only buy one since I missed the 99cent sale

Please explain

I have both and i just seem to enjoy undercover more. Undercover is more street racing and Shift is a simulation. Undercover is far more easier to play and control though and can be beat relatively quick while Shift takes a bit more time. Id still get undercover though

In short, NFSU = arcade racing, NFSS = sim racing.

Most people who have both games prefer NFSU, way more fun.

ps: This has been asked so many times. In fact, there was a thread just like this a couple of days ago.

Or you can check out the EA sale thread, heaps of answers there.

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

In shift you only race,
