Default Pro Street; Anyone get it?...

Like it? Hate it?

Tell me more...

Also; is it a XP game? Or a vista game?...Does it support DX10 - 64bit? Or is it only DX9...aka XP game?

Thanks!

Demo was crap as predicted. I used to look forward to each game in this series, but that stopped after one rice cooker borefest after another.

the reviews have all been somewhat lame, and all pretty much confirm that the games reversion from busy city scape tracks to some of the plainest racing tracks I have seen in a needforspeed is a buzkill.

NFS has gone downhill since MW. I don't expect Pro Street to be any better than that.

+1. ...after trying the demo, didn't know if it was me (using a XB360 controller) or the game....because the driving was just bad....and that's not good in a diving game

ign gave it rather poor review. 6.8.

but yeah, since most wanted, nfs went downhill. last thing i heard from my friend before he left EA was that they're going to reboot nfs by going back to root with next game. we'll see.

Going back to the root of NFS? You mean basically, Gran Tourismo, cause that is really the root of NFS.

I certainly hope not, they just need to learn what works and stick with those good qualities, just add more cool stuff to what works.

.
what is wrong with that? you preffer discusting looking colorful rice mobiles, that handle like a freaking boat on wheels. Don't even get me started on the commentary. why does EA and now Groove? (people behind Juiced) think that we need some ****ing jackass commenting every few minutes. There is no options to even shut it off.

Handling in Carbon was bad, and now in ProStreet handling is horrible. In one race there is horrible oversteer, in next you get understreer. Oh and in some races a nice combination of both.

Most important aspect of racing game is handling. You either can have Simulation, Arcade or some combination of both. EA invented a new method called "We will piss off everone under the sun"

Racing game with out good handling is useless.

MW, gave me a hope that maybe they could turn this series around, but then they ****ed everything up again with Carbon. ProStreet is a new low.
