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!

About the game


What's up?
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the arcade shadow dancer is also nice, built on the same gameplay foundations as arcade shinobi, but a bit weaker level design. i also love rolling thunder 1&2, which are also very similar (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i played a bit of shinobi and kunoichi on ps2, but they are really just shinobi in name. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth game gear shinobi is more like the arcade version than the mega drive ones. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I'd love some kind of real Sega revival. (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I like a bunch of Shinobi games. Even the Game Gear had great Shinobi games. Also the PS2 Shinobi was too quickly forgotten. (2 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth my fav Sega game is Shinobi (original arcade). I still play it now and then. I think they have other, more recognizable and iconic characters/brands, but for me those games don't hold up as well today (2 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Wasn't really bashing it anyway. I love a lot of Sega stuff, and I think Shenmue is okay. Maybe a bit overrated is all. (2 Hours ago)
