Unfortunately the end result is a chore to even play through, and your hardcore racing fiends will have a hard time finding anything to keep their interest here.
However, with all of the glam and style of the console Pro Street titles muted down for the PSP release, something is definitely lost in translation. PSP Pro Street feels like the neglected child of the family, with a bland menu design, sub par music selection, and some downgraded vehicle options that just leave everything feeling incredibly bland. For instance, you can't even manipulate on car decals, only window stickers, paint color and tint. The options you do have are pretty limited, and the car selection is mediocre. Also, you start off with two vehicles only, and are forced to buy just one to use."
