  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.

    The best Need for Speed game in years. [Issue#161, p.86]
  3. 80
    While definitely not as intensive as to replace Forza or Gran Turismo, ProStreet takes the Need for Speed engine and shows that it is a solid competitor against even more traditional racing titles.
  4. We welcome with open arms the change of attitude and approach of this new Need for Speed. But we frown upon some of the problems that were left unsolved, like the structure of the career mode but mainly on the handling of the cars. But for those who turned their backs on the previous games, it’s a good place to return to this franchise. [Dec 2007]
  5. Overall if you prefer your racers arcade style rather then simulations you might well get along much better with Need For Speed Pro Street, and once you forgive the odd behaviour of the car handling you can get along with the game fairly well.
  6. 68
    A disappointing effort in a franchise that has generally been rather solid. It sort of feels like EA is starting over again, leaving the open-world aspects to other games like its own Burnout Paradise, but is seems like Black Box didn't know what to do with what was left.
  7. The entire development team seems to have just tried too hard to make a decent title, and changed key areas of their previous titles which simply shouldn’t have been changed. Sadly, this Need for Speed title is the first one for a long time that needs to be left on the shelf.

It has great variety and polish in its deep selection of tracks, races, and car physics, and it will truly challenge the gamer or the first time not by giving you relentless AI, but by making yo hardly decide between racing like a pro and winning races cleanly, or pushing things to the limit by crashing into others and fighting for first. It's an excellent design choice that will effect your emotions for your ride and forever in itself change the way you play a racing game. If you don't enjoy this (and if you hate this much change in your video games) the online will drown you with affective variety, from uploading your gameplay photos to the game's website, to sharing your customized car blueprints and race day championships. This is one of the few racing games that has it all, and will most likely please everyone. Expand

I missed a garage where you can view your antire car collection at once. I think the Kings, or the games bosses poses limited or no difficulty at all. It took me a while to figure out how to use my own cars in multiplayer which was really irritating. The bocklet is very thin and will not answer many questions you might have. Expand

    My first NFS title was Hot Pursuit, back in school days, and that made me fall in love with the franchise. There were many ups and downs My first NFS title was Hot Pursuit, back in school days, and that made me fall in love with the franchise. There were many ups and downs along the way, but Pro-Street has by far been my biggest disaapointment and a total heartbreaker. Looks like, in his zeal to think out of the box, the creatives went overboard. The lighting, the environs, the physics, though quiet new, somehow falied to provide the rush of the game. At the end, the whole reality that was brought in didnt really let me live the game. If I wanted too much of reality and physics, i'd just go and buy a GT or McRae title. My Rating of 5 goes totally to the technical enhancements to the game, and no more. Which so totally saddens me because this is a title i have skipped school to play. Thankfully EA also released the Burnout Paradise, so that I can hit other cars and drown my sorrows of NFS into that. Expand
