  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 outstanding online gameplay is just one item on a long list of reasons to play ProStreet. The great visuals, solid racing mechanics, lengthy career mode and customization options help make this one of the most deep and enjoyable racing titles around.
  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. The decision to move away from what has made the series so great and toward the simulation style is a questionable one. Fans of the series will be upset with the omission of the cop chases, illegal racing, and overall shady mood.
  5. Need for Speed has gone legit, and in doing so has lost most of its excitement.
  6. 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.
  7. A disappointment when you look at it against the last two games in the series. The elimination of an open world environment and police chases takes any adrenaline rush that was in the last couple games and puts you in decidedly static game mechanics.

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

    This game is terrible. If it was just crap graphics (forza 2) it could be forgiven. If it were just the poor framerate, I guess I could This game is terrible. 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
