  1. Out on the track, you'll race primarily in two modes--Grip and Drag races. Both styles give you an excellent hands-on feel that brings home the sense of speed and real-world challenge. [Holiday 2007, p.85]
  2. The more you enjoy your cars, the more you'll get out of it. [Jan 2008, p.36]
  3. It’s a game that may well appeal to a broader demographic, but also one that may leave its existing fans somewhat out in the cold. There really needed to be more innovation and less reworking of old ideas if Pro Street was ever going to live up to the (not insurmountable) hype.

    Need for Speed ProStreet is 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.
  5. The different disciplines may work in the real world, but not so much as Need for Speed ProStreet presents it in video game form. While racing game fans will find a decent NFS game behind the hip-hop facade, most people shouldn't bother with it.
  6. 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.
  7. While there may be some hardcore gamers that will enjoy the many, many hours of repetitive racing, most players will only look forward to throwing this one out the window rather than deal with the archaic controls and numerous problems.
