Rated 7 out of 10 by ProNothingFailEverything Could be better...
I pick up this game thinking it was worth a try, even after reading all of the bad reviews. The vehicle choices were excellent. Some of the best cars ever where in here, the "Hemi Cuda" and "Ford Shelby"! what other game has that. The vehicle Customization was decent, not great, it used the system almost like midnight club LA. just not as well. Then there is the fine tuning of the car. if you know what you can tweak on a real car then you know how to use that, i messed with it and made my car harder to steer. the overall challenge was not that great. after turning the help off and making the difficulty King, Then the game became harder. the tracks after some time there not all that different and kinda boring. The circuit racers are boring, the drift is really easy, the speed races are some what different there point to point races at 200mph. The best mode is the drag racing Very realistic and very fun. Overall a great simulator, not a great racing game. rent before buying, or get it used
Rated 10 out of 10 by ultimate-saiyan-maboo-booconjorbis Whoo-hooo!!!!
It is fun, the cars are great, the customization is fantastic... i love it... now the downside: RYO!! i really dont like how all rival driver in NFS games are total jerks!!! they need to make a rival who is a little nicer. Ok somore on the downside... making money to buy cars, u have to te every race befor u can buy a new car and customize it and u have to get three cars buy the second section... im sorry but isnt that a little demanding? okay so Some of the cars are hard to visually customize because of the vinyls being at the bottom of the car making it difficult to see how it looks on the car... the aerodynamics should change with every body kit part the the wind touches... and what is the point of the racing seats? okay so that's the negative the positive is this... the cheats... they save u a lot of time getting money... and the racing itself is perfect the only part i don't like is that they start behind everyone else so u have to dodge them just to get into the lead with a nice car.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Poetic Skillz Let me tell you what's good about this game
First off, many gamers have given this game negative feedback, which is understandable. But let me tell you what factors actually make this a fun game to play with a friend. First., not many racers these days come with the split-screen option, and second and my favorite is the crash cam! If you love seeing car wrecks and are just an all around action junkie, you'll take some joy from this game. Not to mention when on splt-screen you still get to see this action cam when you crash... That's the funniest part in this game, when you have a friend over, drinking or whatever, and you hit the nevada highway going 200 mph competing. Your buddy comes along side and you push his car off the road and you get to see the fruits of your evil driving! Also, the graphics aren't really bad in this game, they actually shine pretty good compared to some of the others in it's genre. The customization is still really good, and like I said the social factor of this game is what really makes it shine!
Rated 0 out of 10 by nyro519 well EA i think you guys are getting better
man i just seen the trailer for this game on the 360 marketplace and let me tell you this(it looks really sweet). i think that EA is getting better in making those games. their games have come a long way from those train wreaks they called underground part 1 and 2. i am not really a big racing fan(i actually prefer anything over racing because its just not as good as shooters or not my style. once i first played most wanted i made me quickly change my mind.in underground one the gameplay was so boring and slow and part 2 was only made to compete with midnight 3 dub edition i mean come on who puts trucks in their street racing games. most wanted was way better with a good story line and good graphics and gameplay(except on psp where the cops are too fast and invincible). i cant really talk about carbon because i havent bought it yet but all my friends said it was good and from what i seen it is good. this game looks even better with ralistic damage and graphics.
Rated 5 out of 10 ProStreet? Or NoStreet?
Ok first of all the name "prostreet" kinda makes the game sound like a street racing game but it's not, that's why they should have named it "NoStreet". Anyways when I bought this game I was very excited about playing it because I'm a fan of need for speed and have every nfs game ever made (including those old retro ones). So when I played it I was truly amazed! 0.0 for 20 minutes..... after the first couple of races the game just gets old. It just feels like you're playing for nothing; it has no fun in it. This game has awesome graphics and sounds and cool customization features (I actually made the bmw m3 GTR from nfsmw from scratch in prostreet). The soundtrack is ok, I only liked about 5 songs. But over all I didn't like this game. I never played it for 4 months since I bought it. So I'd just say buy it for a collection if you like nfs or just don't even bother. Wait till a new need for speed; I'm sure they will improve. Or just rent it to get a feel of it.
Rated 9 out of 10 by I St0le urSOCKS Come on
Okay I think people are not giving this game enough credit. A racing game is about racing and this game gives that to you. This game does have a damage system which turns a lot of people off. However it makes it more real and gives an added expense to the game so when you finally get all that money and have nothing to use it on. There you go. Also the car selection is huge nothing is better then using a comaro and jumping to a gallardo, and having them race on the same level. I like the different types of racing being able to go from a normal race to a drag race and see you 10 second car go, or jumping to a drift and watching your car slide threw turns. This games car customizing allows you to paint your car so no two will ever be alike. You can put simple stripes or cover it from nose to tail in decals and advertisements. So overall I think many people have not looked at the brighter picture and that this game is a lot better then what people are saying. Give it a real try and enjoy it for the racing not the damage you take.
Rated 0 out of 10 by justblack Sucks 4 u
i'm already playing the game and it kicks ass. if u didnt preorder u dont get the game until 11/15. fortunately i was the first person to receive the game in NC. u start off the game as ryan cooper and u drive a 240 sx s13. u race in batttle machine and get either a civic hatchback or a cobalt ss (both pretuned). i chose the cobalt and use it for drag. the drag racing is the best ever in the series and the customization is everything i have ever wanted and then some. i completely rebuilt the s13 and tuned the suspension myself(my best talent). the cobalt is a beast on the drag track and the lowest time was 18.23 runnin 290 bhp. im typing this at work so i had to stop playin but if dont have this game and you were a fan before carbon let u down then u really need this game. and even if your not a fan yet and just want to get in on the racing action you will be glad u did.
Rated 1 out of 10 by Top notch king Need for speed prostreet
This game really sucked big time. I'm a huge fan of need for speed games but after this game i was completely done with it. I've owned every need for speed game from need for speed, Need for speed hotpursuit and undergrounds most wanted and carbon, but this one blew big time. Why even call it prostreet? This game should have been called blow hard street. I was expecting the usual story line and cars but this was just boring; no cops no story line and the fix car thing was totally lame and the crash system. To me this game was a waste of money and I advise no one to buy it. This game's graphics were alright but the certain car for a certain race was just lame. I wanted to use all my cars for every race, but i couldn't. That was a big disappointment to me. I hope undercover doesn't blow as much as this because if it does, i'm done with need for speed for good.
Rated 5 out of 10 by Game Game 34 You call this a racing game...
First i bought this game becuse i like need for speed and i did hear that it was fantastic when i played it it was the worst racing game ever when you turn they brake for you and then if you get stuck in one race and you dont have nitro you are stuck there so you have to then restart the whole game the sound was not that good the vehicle custamation was okay but not as good as nfs carbon the vehicals sucked and then those races when you have to verse really hard guys they were almost impassibl the tracks were almost the same most of then were just turned around the challenge is farly easy until a boss battle and there cars are tremendeusoly fast so then you think ohhh i have to make my car faster but you cant becuse you barly have any money so you have to restart which is anoying so if you love racing games heres some advice DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!
Rated 1 out of 10 by Topgun145 The worst game ever build in game history
I was so stupid to pay *** + tax for this game, this is one of the worst game I ever play. Do not buy this game even for a dollar. I played lot of NFS games they were all good. I was very impress with NFS Carbon. But this is a total lost. If this is the standard NFS going to follow then God bless then. What I don't understand that how come they can come up with this kind a bad game. On top that they sell game for *** which is a total crap. If you did not but this game yet don't even think about buying even use, like I said before its a total lost. One more game like this and I am out of NFS forever. No story line, Bad control, graphic sucks big time, cars sucks. So everything about this game is bad. NFS staff need to sit down for a while and come up with something nice instead of keep releasing bad game one after another.
