Another NFS ProStreet dev diary

Another NFS ProStreet dev diary

Electronic Arts released yet another developer diary of Need For Speed ProStreet, but after all why complain about it when it's still quite an interesting watch?

Best smoke effects yet? I think so.

Damage technology looks pretty impressive too, lets hope they put the same effort in to the gameplay.

I think this game is absolutely awesome! What are you guys on about?! Playing the demo has me hooked.

I love how FINALLY after literally 10 years of effing bull**** that the damage physics has been brought back, takes me back to the days of Toca World Touring and Destruction Derby.

This is real damage aswell not that other game which names forgets me, the one where you get points for smashing public cars n such.

Anyway i love the game, most definetly going to pick it up.

Smoke looks brilliant, but PGR4 does everything else better.

The game is BAD. I expect to see scores in the 7s, nothing more.

Graphics look OK, smoke looks way too damn fake (nice effect, bad implementation). But those are graphics, the physics are just AWFUL and so is the sound and what have you. The speed challenge or whatever they want to call it in this game is relatively fun the first time through, but the other kind of race? Whoa, that's the definition of boring right there.

Having said that, part of the reason for the boredom is how easy it is. Why even bother giving "aids" when the highest difficulty of driving is so damn easy?!

After High Stakes, the Need for Speed franchise went in a downward slope. Now they are way down there, and at this age, unless EA takes serious measures, there's no way they'll get it back up.

COD4 smoke
COD4 is old right? COD4 isnt even out in the UK yet and you just said you have seen better smoke in old games? Smoke in racing games is completely different to smoke in an fps!

    Moonwalker Tried out FM7 demo, FH3, Recore and man....what a difference. SDR looks dull in comparison now, jeez. In terms of colours for starters, sky and sun in FM7 and FH3 looks lovely, vivid. (2 Hours ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Good lord, i just truly witnessed HDR. And now i see what all the hype is about. Xbox One S let's you enable/disable HDR on the fly and you can easily notice the differences then. (2 Hours ago)
