  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.

    I had so much hope for this game, with all the great reviews and user comments posted everywhere not only in Metacritic. But despite my waiting for almost three months to make sure a patch and all the bugs were ironed out, Im so disappointed upon getting this game. First, the auto internet updating procedure upon installation sucks! What if you only have a dial-up connection? 2K, consider not everyone has good internet connection! Also, upon finishing the very,very long installation time which took almost the entire day, I had an adventure just running the darn thing!! It's so unpredictable if it will run or not, despite being qualified to run the game in my system. 2K, no matter how good the game is, it's all out the window if it won't run!!! And you charge $50 for this crap? Shame on you!! You wasted many days in my life trying to get the thing to work on my PC, and until now, it still does not work!! I may just throw the DVD in the garbage bin where it belongs. Last 2K game I bought was Civilization 4, which was excellent.. but then this? Very, very, disappointing. Expand

    I love playing this game with my WiiMote. It may not be the best NFS game but thus far I'm having a lot more fun. I do miss free roaming and police chases however. Expand

    excellent control system that uses the WiiMote to a great effect, if you like your cars you will definately enjoy this game. The "professional" reviews here are unduly harsh in my book. Worth a try for sure. Expand

    Great graphics for the wii. I thought the controls where a lot better than Carbon. Disappointed that there was no online mode, even though I've heard that the 360's online mode was bad. The game seems very long and I've ran about 30 races and I am only 4% done. The problem with the game is its not challenging, out of the 30 races I ran, I've won 28 of them and the two that I lost where because of user error in the drag mode. The announcer was really annoying but I just turned him down in the options and its fine now. The advertisement is a bit much but everyone is in it for the money, right? Overall: not an amazing game, but a good racing game. Expand
