  1. The effort put into the depth of control of this game is very apparent. Each of the four modes of racing controls in subtly different ways, and racing aficionados will definitely be able to tell the difference.

    But it's that wholly rebuilt, almost-a-sim physics engine that propels ProStreet to such heights. Tossing these weighty sedans and exotics around, knowing you're connected to the road by just four distinct contact points, then late braking into a turn and riding the very limits of adhesion through it, is ungodly fun -- and darned challenging.
  3. As a stand-alone racer, a competent console conversion; maybe a bit repetitive in the long run, but still a fair effort from EA.
  4. ProStreet is a solid racing game, but it has some performance issues and is missing most of what made the previous games in the series interesting.
  5. Customization and realistic damage represent modest signs of progress and they make the gameplay interesting for a while. These additions, as I'm sure most of you will agree, fail to compensate for all those things that made ProStreet's predecessors shine - free-roam driving, outracing the cops, story-driven gameplay and so on.
  6. ProStreet isn't a bad game, it simply doesn't hold a candle to its competition, and Need for Speed fans will be left wondering where all the fun has gone from the illegal, turned legal, street racing series.
  7. By taking out the two aspects of the series that made it stand out from the slew of other racing games on the market, Need For Speed ProStreet ends up as an exercise in mediocrity and offers nothing new or remarkable.

    I really enjoyed it actually. The physics are definitely much improved, and the removal of rubber-band AI is a godsend. The graphics andI really enjoyed it actually. The physics are definitely much improved, and the removal of rubber-band AI is a godsend. The graphics and damage modelling are beautiful, but above all the game drives really well, especially when turning off all the driving helps. That said, the drift and drag modes are trivially easy and quickly get boring, especially with all the cinematics surrounding them that cannot be skipped over. The high speed races don't add very much either except for a wonderful sense of speed, but the basic track races are actually well done and tweaking the chassi is actually usefully implemented even though it's nowhere near as realistic as more serious racers. The "story" adds nothing, so in this respect there is less value than in Most Wanted for instance. Expand

    Awesome rendered graphics, A great physics W/Damage addition BUT.... the real kicker here is that they have introduced a politicall correct Awesome rendered graphics, A great physics W/Damage addition BUT.... the real kicker here is that they have introduced a politicall correct attitude IN the game and condone "real" street racing. They make the game a "legal race" game instead. I say screw that. NFS is all about being in the REAL STREET. I don't mind a disclaimer at the beginning of the game like they have done in the past, but basing the entire game on it is absolutly intolerable. 2 points for the graphics and physics. Oh one more thing. The cut scenes have people on the sidelines cheering you on and they look like they are rendered on a 1997 PC graphic platform. Expand
