Need for Speed: Pro Street
Need for Speed Pro Street was very boring.Other than the crashes,its not worth your time.The gameplay was average at best,the graphics were good,the sound was annoying,the lasting appeal is sorta there.That is,if you actually would want to play it a second time.I also thought the controls were just plain AWFUL.There isnt much of a career mode,and the sad excuse of one,makes no sense.Need for Speed ps was a very dissapointing game.I thought this game had alot of potential but it just never showed up in the gameplay.I mean from the gameplay,to the controls,and to the box art.It was Either boring or awful.I think this is the worst Need for Speed game ive evered played.If I did it over,we probably never would have bought this game.The only reason we did buy it is because our dad wanted it.So overall,I think Need for Speed Pro Street is still worth a 5 out of a 10 because of the first couple times you play it and the extremely funny crashes.But if I went any lower,I would slap myself.Just average.If that.
What were they thinking!!!
This game is bad and I’ll say one of the worst need for speed titles I ever played. The only thing that's good is the choice of cars, the graphics, and the new crash feature. Also this game is super boring and when they announce the game last year I was really excited because I thought there taking street racing to a higher level. Then when I rented the game it got to be the biggest disappointments. I hope this year's nfs will be going back to street racing. Oh yeah the worst there is about this game is no cops....yeah I'm dead serious, no joke. Most wanted and carbon where the 2 best titles for the need for speed franchise. My favorite nfs games are most wanted and carbon because in most wanted they combined street racing with police chases. In carbon they give you teams, choose 3 types of cars (tuner, exotic, muscle), and you can conquer cities. So buy most wanted or carbon if you like need for speed.
This game is a very good racing game for the Wii and its unique steering controls. The track graphics are great, the courses are fun, and the cars are awesome, considering they have new European cars such as the Pagani Zonda F but keep the American muscle classics. What I like about this game more than I do in Forza Motorsports 3, which is not a very good game, is that the tracks are wide enough to pass without going on the grass. All racing games these days seem to only have one wide tracks, which ruins the gameplay. This does not do this, however. What is cool is that there is one pro street king that you must beat, and after that, you can try to beat the street kings of various types of races, including regular race, drag race, drift race, and top speed race. The drag races are okay, the drift races are decent, the regular races are fun, and the top speed races are amazing. You race with about seven other cars on a very wide and banked course to see who finishes. I think that this is the best part of the game. Also, for each race, there are, for the most part, seven competitors, which makes the races challenging and fun. In newer games, there are only four cars on the track racing (not all games, but most), which makes it uneventful. I have played several racing games through the years and besides Nascar and Mario Kart, this is the best game
well i told my dad i wanted a racing game so he said okay i'll take you to Gamestop. so we got there and there was a whole bunch of racing games so i picked up need for speed pro street, and at first i thought it would be bad. but then i asked if i could test plat it on the wii they have there. and they said sure. so i played it and realized, IT'S FRIGGIN AWSOME. so there's my review.
Strayed from the moneymaking series we all know
My first Wii and NFS game. Think about that and you'll understand why I wanted it so badly. It still has racked up the most played hours on my Wii. Now I like the great graphics, nice selection of cars (of which I only find 5 or 6 great though), and introduction/bringing back of drag racing, but it really lacked in certain areas. Where was the open-world racing and cops that made me love the series? They were in Carbon and Undercover (I would say Nitro and Hot Pursuit but the arcade style cops SUCK VERY VERY BADLY), just out of reach. Carbon would have the most played hours if it hadn't had so many scratches that the Wii couldn't read it...
This is a fantastic game. I love Pro Street because the game has a great car selection, the races are fun, the customization is great, and the game play is awesome, and the soundtrack rocks. All I can say is Pro Street is amazing!
A bit long, but worth it.
This was my first purchased Wii game, and, according to the Nintendo Channel, this is my most played game both in terms of time and number of times played. I was hooked from the start, mainly because of the fact that it had upgrades. I've always been an upgrade game fan, so this was no different. My only issue with this game, like many critics, was the absence of cops, but I won't factor that into my review, seeing as how cops were never intended to be part of the game. After a while, I found four cars I could always use for total domination, even on the King assist level, so aside from one racing organization's events, the game was actually a bit too easy. Some races, especially the later Grip races, are just unnecessarily long. If you look through my wins/number of races numbers, you'd see that most losses are actually me just totaling my car, especially in Speed races, where I like to try to crash other people's cars. The lack of an online mode never really meant anything to me until after Prostreet's servers were shut down. So either way, if you get the game now (I highly recommend it), you're not missing out on anything.
It's okay, but not okay
There are tons of things I can say about this game that could help your decision with the game, or hurt your decision. But all I'm going to do is just going to list out the pros and cons to influence your decision. Pros: The track graphics are amazing. The street details are really starting to develop for the wii. The only thing I'll point out, is that at the Tokyo Dockyard, some of the boats make the backdrop look terrible. But other than that, the features are great. And I really like some of the cars in the game. Like the Pagani ZondaF is a car that hasn't been seen in most NFS games except for the new NFS games, like Shift. Cons: Even though the game has a good upside, the game really has the biggest flaws that take away from it. For example, when you crash, all you see is black marks that show up on your car and cracked windows. Also, again, no wi-fi connection. Plus, all those other "race kings" or whatever, has teammates and you don't. And also, you can't free ride on the game. The WHOLE game is racing. Nothing else. You notice, racing games like MX vs ATV that all you do is race and freestyle but you still get a free ride feature. And when you beat the game, there's NOTHING you can do. You can't go back and re-race all boss races or anything. Overall: The game is okay, the gameplay is great, its just the graphics and visuality of the game that takes it away and the afterplay that take it away.
I'm not one of those people who writes like a 5 page report on games and stuff but i will say that i loved this game and would recommend it to anyone who likes racing games. I have it and one other the main reasons that i bought it is that you hold the controller on its side instead of using the nun-chuck to drive like in NFS:Carbon
The first and second were the best . They had neon lights hydraulics and everything. Most wanted was great but it lacked custimization. Carbon fixed that but it was not a good story line. Prostreet is like a completely new need for speed . Imiss the old ones.
