once you get used to it the driveing is not that bad ,It seems to be better in the retail version then it was with the demo version ,or it could just be me ,I have gotten used to it.

I dont think its all that bad,all the driveraids needs to be turned off as the stability control adds huge understeer.This is very much like the GT series on the ps/ps2 where those are on by default.

My input - and i play real race sim games like GTR2, Rfactor, etc with a steering wheel

hey i bought teh game, i used to love the nfs games, then i bought underground when it came out becuase "hey this is new style of gaming"... yet it got borring, and i love import cars.. but then they started killing it wiht over the edge acting and too much negative street racer influence, i dont know any people like that in real life that would be soo crazy for street racing.. so they lost me after that... same goes for all those street racer games, i see my little cousins playing those and i just hope they dont get influenced and think street racing is all about neon lights and body kits lol...

I had a friend who is 27 and go buy the game for ps3 before he even got a ps3 just becuase it looks tight..

but pro street isnt too bad.. i like to see cars i can relate to, i hate all the wannabe commentary.. but turn down all the traction controls/abs and it feels pretty decent.. still not a sim..

I hate how this game has a story line, your a caucasian guy named cooper.. soo annoying i think this game was targeted market of a certin ethnic.. they should just leave it out.. So i just hate the stereotype street racer image that need for speed and fast and furious have created on youth today..

i bought the game through EA store so i downloaded it,.. today i got an email for a free wrx sti in the game haha... i jus gotta play it to get my moneys worth out of it..

Finished the game. It makes less and less sense towards the end. There are 5 "kings" right? Drift King, Drag King, Grip King, Speed King and Showdown King. Now, showdown king is supposed to be the best of all these "kings", so why was i able to defeat him before i beat the other kings? I hadn't even attempted to defeat the other kings, and he challenged me to a series of races where my 915 bhp Lamborghini, 1048 bhp WRX and 132 bhp Sprinter (AE86 corolla - drift car) made short work of his Lancer Evo X.

Decent game, poorly planned ending.

Buy them all. EA needs your support to make more of the same.

I don't like how the game is put together ,you can tell it a port ,but are far as handling .with my MOMO it handles very good ,not as bad as everone is saying or I am just used to bad driving games .But it handles just as good as TDU .Plus the game play is great no pauses or crashing and it looks great at 1920x1200 FSAA 4x and 16x aniso.

The Driveing is great in this game ,I don't see how anyone can say it bad ,I have good control of my car ,it is a lot better then the last two or three NFS games,They could have added so more places in it to race ,it seem like ever race is the same place.

Most wanted sucked just like prostreet does.

The last really good NFS game was porsche unleashed. After that, they seemingly ignored any type of car physics, realistic sounds and interesting tracks. Yeah they've gotten better looking as the newer games come out but the fun factor is gone and they've dumbed down the car physics so much it does't even feel like a car any more.

I'm a hard core gran tourismo player so I've been spoiled by good racing games with good physics and sound. Heck, even fortza MS on 360 is SO much better than NFS. Same with gotham racing... It's like EA doesn't relize it's making a game with cars in it or something.. or they don't care.

Like they say you either Hate it or like it ,Need for Speed P.U. is on of my favorites and this come close to it as far as handling and tunning.I have really enjoyed this game ,still playing ,Need for speed carbon I played it for about a hour and have not played it since ,I may go back and see if it was as bad as I thought it was.When TDU came out I played it a long time .but I like fun raceing games ,I hate the ones where you got to go around the track 50 times ,it might be more realistic ,but I perfer a arcade game style.

Let me know if you guys find any fixes for the stuttering, got 169.09 in XP for this game. Stuttering like a mofo, Vsync-on makes it even worse.

EA knows about it, all over their boards. (thank god they don't erase)

Hopefully a patch soon, from both Nvid and EA.
