Need for Speed: ProStreet User Reviews

9.6

More than 'just a game'

The good:

  • Graphics.
  • Overall customizable features.
  • Difficulty.
  • Surroundings.
  • Gameplay.

The bad:

  • Music.
  • Controls.

Summary:

Need For Speed: ProStreet, is one of the best, and one of the hardest games I've played in a while. There are obviously many ups and downs about the game itself.

Gameplay:
Need For Speed: ProStreet, gameplay wise, has a lot to bring to the table. A lot has been expected of this game, and it pretty much gave the fans what they wanted. With things from realistic-looking cars, to beautiful surroundings, this game really gives you lots of eye-candy to indulge yourself in. The cars themselves were actuality scanned. That was vital to giving a good look to the cars, and making them pretty much rea...

Not the Zonda...anything but the Zonda!

The good:

- New game engine
- Cars make a return from older titles (Acura, Honda)
- Awesome Graphics
- Finally Some Damage
- Revamped visual styling and career map

The bad:

- Cheating (more on this later)
- can get repetitive after a while
- Speed challenge (more on this later, too)
- The story
- The down-loadable demo (complete misrepresentation)

Summary:

Personally, I think the story was complete garbage. I assume this is only because the game is no longer associated with street racing. All for a good reason, but drained the game of some of it's familiarity with earlier NFS titles. This time around, your player has a name, Ryan Cooper. He has a background in street racing, but has brought his skills to legal road racing to see how he fairs. After a main event that kicks off his racing "career", Ryo Watanabe, the biggest name in racing, completely disses you for no reason. So it's basically your mission throughout the game to catch up to, an...

Need for Speed Prostreet: The definition of meh.

The good:

Engine sounds are still big beefy roars
Cool box-art
The name Need for speed Prostreet is an anagram of Deed Reefers

The bad:

Car models
Car physics
Controls are somewhat awkward and clunky
So many freaking advertisements!
The back of the box has some of the biggest lies ever written.
Over hyped.

Summary:

Firstly I would like to say right off the bat, that this is indeed one of the worst racing games ever made. But before I point out all the flaws I'd like to say that the cars in the game still have great engine sounds.. But that?s where the all the goodness stops sadly.
Need for speed Pro Street tries (and fails miserably) To use the remote in a fun and intuitive manner that will draw you into an amazing world of gorgeous cars and high stakes races.. This is not the case at all.
The remote is turned sideways and the 1 and 2 buttons are used to Brake and accelerate respectively. While this ...

Excellent!

The good:

  • Cool game modes
  • Sophisticated modifications
  • Realistic
  • Excellent special effects
  • Very high speeds

    The bad:

  • At first, it's not user-friendly
  • No more police, traffic or free roam
  • Visual damage does not exist in the PS2 version

    Summary:

    I don't care what everyone else says, this game rocks! Anyone who says this game is disappointing is because they were expecting the old, city based races. In this game, the races are controlled, like the URL in NFS: Underground 2. Unlike NFS: Underground 2 and NFS: Carbon, it is always daytime so you can see where the heck you're going. This game is a cross-breed between the previous Need For Speed games and Gran Turismo. It still has the Need For Speed feel though.

    There are some new and enhanced game modes about. Drag racing is much more sophisticated. First you have to heat your tires to...
