Need for Speed ProStreet
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
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.
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!
I just bought this game b/c I loved a couple of the other Need For Speed games. I had seen the bad reviews, but I figured at this low of a price I would take a chance. I'm not sure what game the people were playing when they gave bad reviews, the Pro Street game I played was a VERY SOLID GAME! The graphics are astounding on this game. The sound is very good as well. The controls are spot on and it has a pretty deep online mode to it. Most of all, it is fun to play. The only bad thing i've seen about this game is that there are so many billboards with ads on them that it begins to get on your nerves a little bit. This is not one of those games that will change your life forever. When it comes to racing though, it is one of the better games I have played. I would have payed a lot more $ for the game and still been happy!
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.
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.
This is the Need For Speed I want.
Need For Speed has taken street racing to a new level. Now, its different. Street racing on closed tracks. Crowds screaming for you, the announcer cheering you on. Everything is going your way, and then suddenly, you just lost. Your car flew out, and was totaled. That's what just happened. Everything can change in an instant, but that's real. That is what really happens. This game bring the realism to the Need For Speed series that has never been there. In this game, there is drag races, drifting, and different types of basic races. (class-racing, time-attack) Need For Speed is the same, just without the cops. This is a great follow up for Most Wanted and Carbon, and is great to lead up to Undercover. A little realism, that still feels like Need For Speed. Great. But don't expect a simulation racing game. This is NOT a game like Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport. This is a Need For Speed game, I repeat, this is a NEED For Speed game. You still feel like you need to beat the cops, even though their isn't any cops. You need to win, and each racer is like a cop, trying to get past you, or catch up to you. Damage is bad. You will most likely get some damage, and YOU have to pay for it. Right out of your earnings. This is a Need For Speed game. The type I want. Its not to realistic, and it feels like the street racing side of the series. Great.
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.
On the right track!
I will have to give EA credit with making a unique racing experience with Pro street! I actually like this game and for the price you will get your moneys worth! Make a name for your self and eventually racing the best is what its all about! Its nice going from track to track trying to break records in Drifting , Dragging, and Speed and time trials and Sector shootouts are probably my favorite. This is one game that you dont need a racing wheel to get the hang of the controls. All in all you cant lose with Need for Speed Pro Street...
Good Racing Game
This is a pretty good racing game considering it was made in 2009. Sound is okay graphics pretty good and a lot of fun race types. Some of those include, Drag, grip, and multiclass grip. This is also a realistic game too, your car gets damaged and you have to pay for the repairs.
All in all a really good fun game. Check it out.
