Need for Speed: Pro Street
Don't be to quick to judge
When I went to get this game I knew well it wouldn't be a free roam and it would try to grasp a more realistic feel to racing as opposed to NFSU2. When I first began playing it I didn't like it. I was accustomed to the fast paced crash your enemies into the wall type racing. But once I gave a second look, I was more then happy with this game. The car's customization is fantastic, it's not all preset like NFSU2 and you need to have some creativity to customize but really I found myself spending hours to get it just perfect. On the racing itself, the most important part of this game. The racing is incredibly realistic and I found myself changing my style of racing just so I wouldn't have to spend money on all the repairs. I will admit though. You need to get the faster cars from the garage, you can't sit back with your first car and try to bring it all home with that. overall I'd say this game is great considering I stilll go back to it and play. I think ProStreet has made me a much better racer overall.
This game is Awesome
I first bought this game for PS2 and i thought it wasnt that great, but when i got my PS3 i decided to give it another try, and im glad i did. ive been playing need for speed since underground and this game is just as good as them all even without having free roam. you have grip races, drift races, drag races, speed challenges, and wheelie comps, which is real easy if you have the right car, i mean it doesnt get any better than this. customization is on the next level you decide the size and effect of every piece, vinyl, decal that goes on your car, and you can also tune your engine specs, gear ratios, suspension, what ever you can think of doing you can probbaly do. the story line is fairly long i guess i just got it 4 days ago and probably play 3 or four hours a day and have only got 30 percent complete so it can keep u entertained, and it probably has replay value because everytime you can just use diff cars. go get it once you get into it you will like it
I bought this game a couple of days back, thinking i would actually enjoy this game since im a NFS fan. I was playing this game and the cars steer very horrible, i dont know what EA was trying to prove but i miss the old NFS games with fast paced and better steering, dont get me wrong the cars on this game are sweet. The only thing I hate about this game is the track, its basically the same levels and a few dirt places and highways somewhat. But I was very dissapointed in this game, the details on the cars looks sweet, and the music is pretty cool for while. But i think i wasted my money on this game and i was happy to buy it thinking "Oh man, im going to enjoy this 24/7" i was wrong, but if you like games like this then its for you, i seen the bad ratings on this game, and they dont look so good. I wouldn't blame half the NFS fans out there that are not going to like SHIFT probably, but i hope EA improves the next one like this. But if you want this game, try it out you may like it.
Not the best Need for Speed game in the series
When I got this game, I thought I would see what I saw in Underground 2, Most Wanted, and Carbon, but I was wrong. There is no more free drive, no more cops, and it's almost a whole new racing game. After a while it seems to be very repetitive in career mode, except the game gets more challenging as you progress in the game. I liked that it had all my favorite cars, and the ability to tune your own cars. I think it would be better to just have single races and not just the theme of having "race days". Need for Speed should've stuck with the gameplay of Carbon and the games before. I mostly miss the cops, and the drifting isn't the same either. However, there are 2 new racing modes introduced: high speed challenge and a wheelie challenge. I thought the high speed challenge was pretty fun, especially when you careen over a ditch and flip 19x or hit a pole and stop on a dime at 200 mph (good times). Hopefully, the next game, Need for Speed Undercover, will have corrected the mistakes.
One Of The Best Racing Games Available...
When I first got this game years ago when it came out, I was expecting another great NFS open world game & that is NOT what I got. HOWEVER, I was in no way shape or form disappointed with the game. The game takes a crack at a more realistic racing scene. It's still Street Racing & you can still tune up & pimp your ride, but the races take place on a "Closed Course" Your ultimate goal is to become Street King.---- Graphics in this game were actually very good in my opinion. Nice crisp lines & textures, you can tell the Art Team took they're time.--------- Audio is also very well done. Probably THE BEST sounding racing game on the market, then again I haven't played Forza 4 yet, so that is to be seen, or heard ...---------------- Lasting Appeal is pretty high with this game. I have beaten it several times, taken it back to GameStop & traded it in for something else & I ALWAYS end up buying it back because it's just that fun.----------------- In a nut shell, I would highly recommend this game for anyone who loves racing, be it street, or professional.
Great Ideas. Bad Execution.
I got bored with GT5 and bought this. I have played some of the NFS series before and always like the overall ideas of the games, but it always falls short in the gameplay department for me.
The stage setups, customizations, maps, car selections are all very good. It is a very solid game with a lot of content. Where it starts to fail is around 60% progress. When you start to get the faster, more hp cars you will see that the cars handle like crude. At high speeds you can't turn and any little bump will send your car flying. Upgrading a slow car to it's maximum will also result in the same thing. Making finishing the game annoying, not hard. The races are all still the same types. It becomes a high speed race with little control and little mistakes will cost you big. No fun there.
I gave up on the game about there, 60%. You give too much effort for little rewards. The game becomes frustrating and not fun.
this game is great for everyone and is really beast. the customization on the cars is unbelievable and they have some really sweet cars (corvettes, lambos, and paganis). i havent figured out the online yet, but the career is awesome!!!
well the game is pretty sweet. i have to admit that the game has some very good graphics.i love this game. if u like racing this is the game for u.hope i helped
Worst need for speed yet
I haven't really liked need for speed games except for carbon. I think This need for speed is the worst one yet . I always liked need for speed games because they were street racing games, however this one is more of a track game. I like free roam in racing games but this one doesn't have that feature. I also like dodging in and out of traffic and you can't in this game because you only race with opponents and no civilians. This game is a little to realistic also because after every race you have to repair your car unless you drive like perfectly. I might not like this game only because I like street racing games. This game is like Juice 2 Hot Import Nights because it is on tracks. If you like track games I guess this game would be good. So I think this game was horrible compared to the other NFS games.
Not your typical NFS...
To begin, this is not the typical Need for Speed game that I have come to know and love. That being said, outside of die-hard NFS fans that were upset that EA decided to take a new approach for this one, it's hard to really say that Pro Street is not an excellent game. The change to realistic racing on closed circuit tracks is different for the NFS series, but this game was well designed as looking at is as an individual game instead of the next game of a series really allows you to see how great it really is.The graphics and sound for the game are very well done, which is not surprising. The realistic damage effect looks good and although it takes some getting used to to not just go crashing into your opponents or the walls (you have to pay to repair your car) this makes the racing more realistic because you must learn to control your driving instead of just mashing the accelerator. There are a good number of vehicles available for the game and it is designed so that you must have a different car for every division of race (grip, drift, speed, drag) so you are forced to experiment with more than one vehicle. Vehicle customization is very good as well with more than enough options for changing the appearance of your car.The tracks were well designed and are amazing to look at. Racing can get repetitive later in career mode because of having to drive at the same circuits over and over again, but the difficulty level of your opponents makes being familiar with a track a necessity to succeed near the end of career mode. Overall, NFS Pro Street is a very solid game when looked at on its own. It does fail to fall into the category of most typical NFS games which obviously turned some people off from it, however as a racing game, there is no denying that it is an excellent game. I would recommend it from anyone who is a fan of NFS games to those that are more simulation style (Gran Turismo or Forza) fans because it covers both concepts well.
