The latest chapter in the Need For Speed franchise trades in the high speed chases, midnight races, and adrenaline-soaked sense of adventure of past titles for legally sanctioned events and high noon showdowns.
NFS: ProStreet looks like a good direction for the series and a serious improvement over the now dated fast and furious underground racing.
This title getting a 4.5/5? I refuse to believe it. Even after playing the demo, it's the exact same nonsense EA has been pumping out for years.
The best Need for Speed game to date is Most Wanted (X360). Hands down.
Either way, I'll wait for IGN & GameSpot reviews. Because I'm in denial.
Well, GamePro isn't the best review source out there. They gave Boogie (Another EA game) 4.5/5!!!!
Could EA's $$$ be involved? j/k
i disagree ye nfsmw was a great game but i have played the demo of this one too and thought it was pretty good ;)
I agree most wanted is the best in the series however i found the PC version the best. This is 5th on my November games to get list but am waitin to hear more about it before i pick it up.
I hated Most Wanted and Carbon. They had so many graphic bugs (including slowdowns) that you got no sense of speed. The races felt fixed, as if it was pure luck if you ended up winning or not.
I found the NFS: Pro Street demo to be much different. Much better sense of speed, the desert racing is insane. And the cars control much better, more responsive. Also, good thing they got rid of all the gimmicky special tricks like slo-mo braking etc. I'm looking forward to playing this game.
EA starting to make AAA games??? nooooo
well i thought Skate was awesome
ye skate is pretty good too of what ive played(got the demo on ps3) much better than tony hawks proving ground
played the demo on xbox live and it really disappointed me.
And it was enough to notice this game is crap...well, at least it definitely isn't worthy of a 4.5/5, not even close.
I'm guessing a 3/5 would fit it much better...
Try playing it before you start talking crap.
Im not getting this game no matter how great the scores are...this franchise is suffering from an identity crisis..I bet the next chapter is probably gonna be about crashing...ala burnout...i'll wait for Burnout..and Midnight Club.....besides Motorstorm is quite fun..!!!
But the NFS golden era has passed and looks like its never coming back im talking about the PSX days.
the last fun NFS game was Hot Pursuit on PS2 after that its been more of the same, the only good thing about the games are the soundtracks.
I agree NFS: Hot Pusuit was the last great game in the franchise...
yup need for speed hot pursuit was the best
and i like nfs better than all the racing games I'll be picking this up
I'm actually waiting for Burnout Paradise, NFS died to me and each time I think they'll redeem themselves nope!!
I would be touching this game after the demo.
Graphics were great, but it felt like more of the same. Had some glitchy physics too. I was flying down the road over a gentle hill, and for no reason (without my car ever leaving the ground) my ride started flipping end over end....
Best smoke ever IMO though.
those 2 was the best. prostreet I will not be buying for no reason.
like most of you said nfs has died out same ol same ol crap. what EA need to do is re-make high stakes and hot pursuit and call them high stakes 2 and hot pursuit 3 and I would give prostreets 1/5 score
"Play magazine" in the U.K. gave it 6/10, EA$$$ lol.
"The Need for Speed ProStreet preview in the November issue of Play was mistakenly scored as a review. The actual review will appear in our December issue, with a positive score, on sale Nov. 20. Please accept my apologies for the mix up." - the staff at Play Magazine
The actual score they are giving it is going to be pretty good apparently.
