4.0 out of 5 stars Not like the old Nfs's but excellent in its own right, 9 July 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Need for Speed: ProStreet (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Purhcased this game a couple of weeks ago, and would recommend it to anyone new to the nfs franchise. If you are already an nfs fan, I would say play it with an open mind - it's nothing like the usual need for speed, but is a great game in it's own right.
Ok so there are no cops - but there were no cops in the original need for speed underground 1. There is no traffic, and no fmv.
There is a story in the career mode, although its the usual nfs basic one - ie race up through the ranks, improve your car then have a shot at the kingpin racer. There are different racing modes like time attack (4 cars on track, get the fastest lap) drift, grip, drag and sector racing( get fastest speed at various points on the track) Enough for any kean racing fan.
As I said, its nothing like the original nfs's. Its kind of like Codemaster's Grid - not too serious, not too arcadey.
I would say give the game a chance and at the prices it is going for on Amazon, well, what ya waiting for?
Also, if you own both a PS3 and Xbox, I would say the acceleration controls are better on the 360 (compared to the demo I played on a PS3)
