Default Need for Speed: ProStreet

Has anyone else played this game. So far, it's been mediocre to me. And this is coming from someone who has played the franchise religiously since the very first NFS.

Discuss, gentlemen.

Never played it but I really don't like EA anyways. The poeple at wiki say "all racing in ProStreet take place solely on closed tracks"

I like the series too and was looking at this game, but when I read user reveiws that's the exact same complaint that came up -- More of a racing sim than the previous versions.

lol it sucks the graphics of the cars are really really good same with the audio but the handling is off way off u turn right with the keyboard and it spins out if u hold too long , even with the wheel and pedals it pretty crappy at handing. Thought it would be more like need for speed underground. whick sill rules

Just tried the demo. Is it just me, or even a pebble on the road can cause the car to flip over?

The Underground series was enjoyable for a while on the PS2

ProStreet is the worst piece of crap NFS has produced yet.

It's more of a racing sim.They have tried to impliment more the notion of physics which was absent in the previous series.I'm a fan of racing sims and of NFS so I do like this game except for some exceptions.first of all, the stuttering, the game stutters yeah, but I'm used to it.

also at 200mph expect a car to be unstable. It's like the old porsche 911's .
