  1. The one thing that stands out about Need for Speed ProStreet is that it just doesn't feel like Need for Speed. By taking it out of the city and stealing elements from simulation racers, it loses its distinctive identity that fans have loved over the years.
  2. It was always going to be a struggle, but EA didn’t help itself with poor controls, a visually horrendous game and the need for a more varied and challenging racing game.
  3. Not having any online play also hinders this title, but it most likely wouldn't have helped much considering all of its other issues. If you are looking for a great and enjoyable racing experience, you should definitely look elsewhere.
  4. Compared to previous Need for Speeds, this lacks enjoyment. [Jan 2008, p.76]
  5. ProStreet is a solid racing game, but it's missing most of what made the previous games in the series interesting.
  6. It tries to cover all the bases and provide street, simulation and racing experiences and consequently does not master any of these disciplines.
  7. ProStreet has a tiring, monotonous start that could turn off even the most loyal Need for Speed fanatic. But if have the need to stick around, the race events do speed up to a better, more enjoyable pace. Eventually.
  8. 62
    It could have still been a decent game had the cars driven well, but unfortunately their performance is shoddy. Car lovers will find something to like here due to the customization options, but Need for Speed has certainly seen better days.
  9. Illegal street racing makes for a fun game. Auto testing on a runway doesn't. [Christmas 2007, p.96]
  10. But in the grand scheme of things, the series is really showing its age on the older, outdated hardware.
  11. 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.

    I love the graphics and gameplay (that are very good for Playstation 2), but after an hour playing this is unbeareble. I simply give up after few races because it is very repetitive. Full Review »
