Need for Speed: ProStreet

Need for Speed: ProStreet is the 11th release in the series of Need for Speed games. Like the rest of the games in the series, Need for Speed: ProStreet is a racing computer game that was developed by the Canada-based developer Electronic Arts. It was released on November 13, 2007.

Plot

A former street racer named Ryan Cooper is the main character in the game. Cooper finds himself back in the racing scene when, after entering a challenge, was mocked by Ryo Watanabe, a racer known as the Showdown King. Cooper feels the need to prove himself and ultimately become the Street King, the king of all racing crews. For this reason, players must go through a series of challenges against racers from different racing crews. They must work their way up and beat the kings of the crews for speed, grip, drift, and drag racing. In the end, players must compete against Ryo Watanabe. Should players beat all kings including the Showdown King, they will succeed to become the Street King.

Cars

Need for Speed: ProStreet’s Wii version offer a total of 46 playable cars. Unlike the PC version for which there is a Collector’s Edition and Booster Pack available, the Wii version does not have add-ons to increase the number of playable cars.

Customization

Players of Need for Speed: ProStreet has a variety of options when it comes to car customization. Choices include a wide range of paint colors, vinyls, and decals as well as roof scoops, spoilers, mufflers, body kits, hoods, and rims. The modifications that players make on their cars affect performance.

Review Summary

The ProStreet game is an interesting ride for car racing fans. Though as described by a certain reviewer that it’s missing something interesting, ProStreet is still a solid racing game to many. As reviewed and tried by many, the nicest thing or the most exciting thing in ProStreet is its solid, albeit unspectacular racing. Day-to-day races are based on different events. It’s also based on the legal street racing career of Ryan Cooper. A certain player loved the way that the car damages look and that to him made the whole ride fun. While a whole lot of dislikes for ProStreet include the fact that there are too many ads, the speakers/announcers in the game are so loud and the races tend to seem boring after a while as one cannot differentiate the rides from the other rides. It is also missing things or activities that were available in the previous series released. A certain reviewer quoted that the new direction of the series fails to live up to the level of the previous games. Also known as an uninspired game, ProStreet might be suitable for players who have not had a decent racing experience or in other words, those who are not good at it might go for this solid yet simple game. Need for Speed has always had a reputation of being the most successful racing game around though their ProStreet might or could be their simplest release.
