NFS Pro Street: Grip Racing

NFS Pro Street: Grip Racing

Electronic Arts keeps trying to hype us about Need For Speed ProStreet, and amazingly enough it's actually working for me. It's the first time in years I'm actually eager to play a game from the NFS series.

This looks cool. I thought the first one for the 360 was fun, so maybe I'll pick this up.

I never knew David Tennant made video games... You learn something new everyday =)

Other than that, looks like a good game. I'll probably just get it when it's like £10 or something (I'm a cheapskate, hoora)

Thanks, saw this a while ago, it also peaked my interest in this game!

The smoke is cool. However where it's small puffs, it looks rather a lot like you're dropping balls of cotton wool wherever you go.

The smoke is awesome, and technically amazing, but I agree, it looks too light and fluffy.

Where as old game smoke looked like 'video game smoke' very obviously fake, this looks like CG smoke, something you'd see in a pixar film or something.

It's what I was thinking. If you try and make something totally realistic, you have to do it right. I find although the smoke is awesome and a total step forwards on everything else, it looks more fake because of it.

Whereas floaty roundish balls of translucent smoke in Forza end up lookin better.

It's like the faces in Mass Effect, awsome, but they look weird and not quite human.

Still, I'm excited about a NFS game coming out, for the first time since NFS 3 on the PS 1!

About the game


What's up?
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker And just like that Telltale is no more. They are closing their doors. [url] (2 minutes ago)

    GriftGFX But sure people are more likely to act out in private. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX There's a lot less on the line playing online. Tokido finishing second at Evo has to hurt more than losing to someone online. (4 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth i think it's mostly online gaming people get insulting. easier to be rude from your own bedroom. I rarely see any inappropriate behaviour during live events like EVO (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And there's a lot of good. For a head-to-head competition scene, there's a lot of respect on hand. And bad apples aside, it's a pretty welcoming community (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I won't say that the FGC doesn't deserve the negative attention it gets, but I think it's a shame that it overshadows all of the good. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @Melmoth: That's the thing I don't want taken away from this. The vast majority of top players are good sports. (4 Hours ago)
