Summary: This Game is fun when you're not waiting for it to load/save. It seems like forever. My next gripe is the soundtrack. There's only a few terrible songs that get old FAST. I hate the locked cars. If I have the money, let me buy it! Leave the drifting out next time. It's cool in real-life (not THAT cool), but weak in video games. Maybe, I just don't get the concept or the appeal to drift "racing." I was pleasantly surprised with the track variation. I'm glad I rented it.
Summary: Need for speed has been dependable for a long long time. Sure it was generic and we got one every year. This time, it took a big U turn. Every thing we liked in the past games are gone. Just after 15 min the game get so boring you will never touch the controller again. Probably it is a Wii port up. Cars looks good. Environment all look like a Wii/PS2 game. Stay with Carbon for now.
Summary: 4 races into this game and I was bored, I did not feel like playing it anymore. Free roam is missing where I could have gone an be lawless for a bit until I felt like playing again. Customization is great best of the series to me but that's the only good thing it has going for it.
Summary: The game itself is not that bad. Problem is that EA is delivering a beta and claiming its a finished game. First time I put the disc on my ps3, I had to download a 730 MB update. Yes, that's right: 730mb. Even after the update, the game is still too buggy, I never saw anything like this on a videogame and i've been playing since the NES days. During the race, sometimes the game stutters, and its easy to lose control if you're in a tight turn.
Summary: The races themselves were good, but the game is very buggy. Up until the point were I encountered this: Whenever getting enough points in races so that a raceday is won: The game freezes and has to be restarted. So I was not able to win anymore racedays and advance in the game. This was very frustrating and amonst other bugs I would not recommend anyone to play this game and put your time and effort into it.
Summary: I purchased this game for my 13 year old son with his new PS3 because he loves some of the NFS series. It definitely wasn't worth the $60 we paid for it. This was the only game he was really disappointed with. He loves Guitar Hero 3, has beat Ratchet & Clank Future Tools of Destruction, and continues to enjoy Tony Hawk's Proving Ground. He said the graphics for ProStreet were good, but otherwise hasn't wanted to play it.
Summary: Instead of improving on a great formula, EA decided to go in a whole new direction by making the latest Need For Speed politically correct. Gone are the races through the city streets and the chases by the police. Instead, what EA has given us is an uninspired track racing game with a racing announcer whose voice and repetitiveness begins to grate on one's nerve like fingernails on a chalkboard.
Excerpt: When your hear need for speed you know that you are getting a good game with ultimate driving gaming experience. Well this edition has not in my opinion lived up to expectations. Although EA releasing their 11th edition so they tried to make it a bit different and my eyes changed too much as they were probably thinking how can they improve their game so they could not and changed it alogether.
Excerpt: What happened to Need for Speed. This game definetly isn't like any others, Pro Street is the equivalent of Gran Turismo 4 made awful. In other words, there is no free roaming, the tracks are limited and the gameplay is very hard to get to grips with. So the career, I though the layout was ok. However, not anything special. To complete the career you need to complete several "Race Days" which involve several different events.
