  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.

    We kid you not, ProStreet is arguably the best driving game yet...A game of extraordinary brilliance.[Issue 26, p.82]
  3. When it comes down to it, Need for Speed Pro Street is a racing game that’s focus is entirely on one thing: racing. There are no cute little stories or “other” things to do.
  4. 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.
  5. Need for Speed has gone legit, and in doing so has lost most of its excitement.

    The realistic physics and driving model works very well, but the setting and structure of the racing events ultimately brings it down.
  7. NFS Prostreet is a highly polished title, but completely absent of entertainment value.

I've re-played this game numerous times just to choose different cars to see if i can win with them. And the drag racing alone is worth its weight in gold! Where else can u drag a stock car and upgrade it and see your times get better and better? I love GRID and Forza 2 in one way and ProStreet in another. Its different than straight circut racing type, the best racing game i own!!! Expand

ProStreet is NFS all grown up. The racing and physics modeling is more sophisticated, the user modifications are more meaningful, and the online componant is profound. The over-the-top announcers and the slightly sluggish feel of the early low powered cars are the only blemishes I notice in this game. This is the NFS game I've been waiting for since my first love, NFS:HS Expand

    Fantastic game, If you like more a real SIM and you are less interested in a mindless arcade clearly ProStreet is the best NFS to date. ThereFantastic game, If you like more a real SIM and you are less interested in a mindless arcade clearly ProStreet is the best NFS to date. There is not space for arcade, is like Forza MS, a real driving simulator. In ProStreet you cant turn a 30Mph curve if you go above 50Mph... and If you go at 70 or above be sure you will exit the circuit or crash against the wall... If you like SIM this is the best NFS to date. Expand

    For starters, users shouldn't be punishing EA Nation for making a game that isn't an exact replica of another underground game. I personallyFor starters, users shouldn't be punishing EA Nation for making a game that isn't an exact replica of another underground game. I personally have never played underground or most wanted before, but what I have heard, EA has copied GTAs idea of cop chases and turned it into a game focused on racing. Now that they finally have come out with a game focused on racing with no police chases, it's nice to play NFS ProStreet and have fun racing. I didn't max out my rating because there are a few basic errors that EA Nation made when making this game. One of those errors was forgetting to include an ACTUAL replay of the race one completes. This feature would be a neat add on for those that like the element of a trashed car crashing through the sky at different speed rates. A replay would have also been nice for configuring one's own cars that are beat by others. What I mean by this is that a user can watch a replay to see what the difference is between his or her own car and the A.I (or Xbox Live Player) and find out what the difference is between the two of them. Secondly, EA Nation should have considered adding in 6 A.I drivers to the split screen feature. This would have been nice because instead of you versus your friend ONLY, one also has 6 other A.I drivers to worry about. Third, EA Nation chose some of the worst Kings I had to ever face off in a video game. Maybe edit or in the future, make the Grip King drive an Evolution Ten or a Subaru. Either make the Drag King (or should I say queen for those who have played the game) better at what she does or give her a supra. The Speed King should definitely have a Lamborghini. The Drift King should be getting at least Four Thousand Points. This last one is more or less a complaint basically saying drift is one of the few modes that users have absolutely no trouble with, so to fix this, A.I drivers should be earning way more points than they already are. As for the Showdown King Ryo, more drift points, that's it. Fourth, WAY more cars should have been added into the game. Also cars that needed downloads in order to be accessed should not have been for free. The idea that one gets a Koeniggsegg at the beginning of the campaign because it was 0 dollars means that user is losing no time soon. Fifth, EA Nation should have kept online up until twenty twenty, so at least three-fourths the users that have tried NFS ProStreet had a chance to try the online feature, me being one of them. These are minor errors that I over-stretched big time, but if these errors were fixed or originally not an issue this would be the best game on my list beating CoD to the punch. Expand

The controls are a little slow, and the great feeling you get when you race along the road at high speeds isn't really there. I can't completely bash this game though, the cars are great and the environment is pretty interesting also. Overall this game deserves about a 6, in my opinion. Expand

If it was just crap graphics (forza 2) it could be forgiven. If it were just the poor framerate, I guess I could overlook it - if the gameplay was any good. But it's not. It's a dull racer that *might* have looked good on the xbox, but that looks really sad here on the 360. I think that NFS is suffering an identity crisis: it isn't an arcade racer, and it surely isn't a sim. The environments are jaggy and terrible looking... I am sorry, I have nothing positive to say about this title. I wish I did, as I just forked over $60 to EA. It's just a forgettable title amongst giants. Buy PGR4 and hope for something better to come along. One more thing: don't buy it unless you are on live. Many cars cannot be purchased unless you have MS points. And I wiish I was on live, b/c then I might have had a chance to demo this piece of garbage. Expand
