2.0 out of 5 stars Please avoid this NFS instalment 18 Nov. 2007
By Ben
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Having loved NFS Most Wanted only to be disappointed by Carbon, I was hoping ProStreet would re-engage me. Sadly things have just deteriorated further. Although currently unreleased here, ProStreet is out in the USA and I've managed to get hold of a copy. Graphically, the game is stunning on maximum detail. The selection of cars and their customisation options are also hard to fault. However, ProStreet is ruined by the vehicle handling. EA have attempted to make this more realistic compared to Most Wanted or Carbon, but their efforts have failed dismally. The result is no matter what racing disciple or car, you feel as though you're driving a 20 ton barge through river of treacle. I have played many driving games, and know what to expect from ultra-realistic simulations through to arcade smash-ups. ProStreet manages to avoid either category and provide a simply awful compromise. Whether using my Logitech Momo wheel, or Sidewinder pad - the driving agony remains, and does so in any difficulty setting. I don't know how these terrible handling physics managed to make it to the retail game, but someone at EA needs to be fired. The internet is littered with similarly negative reviews and you can experience the awfulness for yourself by downloading the demo. Even as a NFS enthusiast and racing game addict, i just can't recommend ProStreet.

1.0 out of 5 stars Pretty tiresome, repetitive and inconsistent 23 Jun. 2008
By Michael Sutherland VINE VOICE
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game as a huge fan of Need for Speed: Carbon, but was very disappointed. Although the game runs fine on my old single core 3.2Ghz, 3Gb RAM, Radeon 1650, and looks nice, the storyline is less than waferthin and it's not alway very clear what you're supposed to be doing. The upgrading procedure for your car isn't always obvious - in Carbon, you knew when you started to get beaten in races that you had to upgrade or buy a new car, but in Pro Street, it doesn't seem that intuitive.

It's a nice touch that the visual modifications are free, but you have to unlock the highest grade parts which you need to really beat the game, and you can't always guarantee that you'll unlock them because of the random rewards system at the end of each race. The point system used for scoring is also frustrating - you can come first in each race on a race day, but still not dominate it to get the higher rewards, which seems counter-intuitive.

The cars handle ok, and they do seem to respond differently depending on the upgrades you get. The drag racing is a nice touch, and the speed challenge where you try to get through the race and maintain as high a speed as possible over a long period of time, is particularly nerve-wracking.

The race order is a bit annoying as well - in the middle, you seem to have to repeat races. At the end, you also have to do three race days of the same race in order to challenge the 'king' of that kind of race. I do like a good race, but doing three drifts per race, for example, six races per race day, three race days and then nine to challenge the drift king is really monotonous - that's over fifty drift races in a row to beat him.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 22 Nov. 2007
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I've always been an avid NFS fan, and have owned all of them from when they began. Most Wanted was, in my opinion, the best one, Carbon was above average, but I think EA have made a serious error in this one.

When the intro screen came in and said "Lets keep racing off the streets", I thought, I wonder if they'll employ that in the game... and indeed they did. There is no street racing, you are constantly confined to boring and monotonous tournament race days which become repetitive after a couple of hours. The racing is solid, realistic, but unexciting.

The essence of NFS has been sapped out of this game, no police chases, no street racing. On the good side, the game looks good (even though the environments you race in are VERY limited), there are alot of cars which look fantastic, and what you can do to them is endless, with very accurate optional upgrades. But that's about it.

This game shows how much potential disappointment can exist in the genre. The cover looks great, the adverts looked amazing and made you want to go and buy it, but the outcome is shocking. For someone who has made racing games for years, I would expect more than this. Don't buy it, you'll be disappointed.

Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
Oh dear. What a disappointment.

I've been a fan of the Need For Speed franchise since the Commodore Amiga days, and have been looking forward to this title for absolutely ages, hoping they would have learned their lessons from previous releases (which I studiously avoided buying).

It's a pretty game, there's no denying that, and I did get about 8 hours of enjoyment out of it before becoming increasingly frustrated at how good it COULD have been compared to how poor it actually is.

First of all, there's no replay feature. I'll say that again. There is no replay feature.

Think about that.

Here's a game that's all about doing crazy things in cars, and you can't even go back and watch yourself doing those crazy things! At first glance that might seem to be a fairly small thing to overlook, but it's actually an absolutely enormous oversight.

I was playing F1 driving games 10 years ago that had not just an instant replay, but replay from multiple camera angles and even a "crash cam" so you could watch other people wiping out after the fact!

It's such a basic feature that it never occured to me that it might be missing, and there's absolutely no reason why it should be missing. It's a massive backward step.

Then there's the user interface.

Different screens use a different, but equally unintuitive, combination of mouse and keystrokes to navigate through the various menus and options. It was obviously cobbled together by a bunch of engineers working in isolation with no proper integration management.

Then you get to drive, and, yes, as always with "go fast and try not to crash" games that really is fun. There's a real sensation of speed and I love the sounds too.

The worst of all NFS and I played all before this one. Boring, boring and you drive only on tracks. So I have no idea why someone would call it pro street. Waste of time.
