Need for Speed ProStreet Review
26 October 2008
Excerpt: Need for Speed ProStreet is one of the more bizarre high profile releases of the year. Given the Need for Speed series' history as an action packed, police chase filled, illegal street racing spectacular, EA's decision to focus on legal street racing in semi-realistic handling cars is hard to...
Conclusion: EA have promised to return to the street-race style that fans were used to in the next instalment but will re-visit the track racing every other year. Whether we’ll get bored of this style and the un-consistency remains to be seen, but for now EA have created a fairly substantial Wii racer.
Excerpt: Though you probably haven't polished off 2005's Need for Speed: Most Wanted , and likely haven't even purchased a copy of 2006's Need for Speed: Carbon yet, EA wants to cram yet another Need for Speed game down your cramhole.
Excerpt: Last year's Need for Speed: Carbon took the series out of the sunlight and back underneath the bed covers. The underground night setting returned in full force for Carbon, much to the disappointment of those who found Most Wanted such a delight to play, as it featured a large emphasis on cops, and...
Summary: It’s only March and already we’ve had some blockbuster releases this year. The hardest decision has in fact been which of these amazing titles to purchase; God of War III, Final Fantasy XIII and BioShock 2 to name a few.
Pros: Excellent multiplayer, Even more destruction, Excellent alternative to Call of Duty or Halo
Cons: Short single player campaign, Easy single player campaign
Excerpt: Need for Speed goes legal… I have always been a fan of the Need for Speed franchise and so when I heard a new game was coming out I was naturally pleased, and couldn’t wait to get my grimey hands on a copy. I rushed out on release date, and managed to get a copy to my delight.
Pros: Good graphics, Realistic damage, Good online gameplay
Excerpt: They may not have been to everyone’s taste, but I for one loved where the Need for Speed series was going in its last two efforts. The races were exciting, escaping the police was fun, and the overarching story was perfectly acceptable for a racer.
