Need for Speed: ProStreet
7 November 2008
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. It isn’t perfect however which is reflected by our score, but it is a positive step in the right direction for the future of racers on the Wii and one we look forward too!
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 believe.
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. The once vaunted racing series currently suffers from a chronic case of Didn't the Last One Come Out Last Month Syndrome. DTLOCOLM -- which is also sometimes also referred to as Madden-ification -- is a disorder that affects many games each year.
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 maintained the tuner aspect of the game.
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. Well just to complicate matters, I’m going to throw the recently released Battlefield: Bad Company 2 into the mix.
Pros: Excellent multiplayer, Even more destruction, Excellent alternative to Call of Duty or Halo
Cons: Short single player campaign, Easy single player campaign
Summary: Compete at the highest level of street racing with Need for Speedâ„¢ ProStreet. Itâ€™s no longer good enough to simply rule your local neighbourhood you need to dominate on a global stage. Build the ultimate battle machine, take it to multi-disciplinary showdowns and pit your skills and reputation against the worldâ€™s best street racers. This is your chance to prove that you have what it takes to be crowned the next street king.
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. I got home and slapped it on, and all of a sudden my happiness turn into a somewhat sceptical view on the whole affair.
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. To make things even better finding out who both Josie Maran and Emmanuelle Vaugier were, and then promptly Google searching them were also top notch experiences in their own right.
