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

  • Loakum
    Loakum @droezelke: Wolfenstein 2 is on my list of games to play. Just now I'm playing Resident Evil 7, I had since launch. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz The game is very tightly designed to the point of choking itself, like, is there any real good reason why I can't mount a Sawtooth beyond the game's strict graphics budget? (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz I was expecting something memorable but instead I got a badly beaten Thunderjaw with a smattering of red paint. Disappointed. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz One particular instance I remember was Redmaw, they bang on about this deadly Thunderjaw for a good portion of the side quest. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Because beyond fighting robots the game feels very flat. The world looks amazing but it's like an art gallery, nice to look at and only nice to look at. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz HZD is a competent foundation for what could be a great series. If the games scope of good design can branch out from robot death matches then we should be in for a treat. (1 Hour ago)

    AndreasZ94 @MrWhite: What? That's when game actually gets really good. I have some issues with the game myself but i think its a great game overall especially for a first entry (2 Hours ago)
