Well today I picked up Need for Speed: Pro Street for 360. It seemed like a good idea at the time anyway, well I put the game in and the intro video played which I might add was pretty awesome. The cut scene's are just as good as the actual game play IMO. When I was practicing for my first real race I was just running into stuff, who wouldn't, and then I realized that there was this awesome jump ,dirt hill off the course, where I could get some air. Well seeing as my car was F'ed up the A from me being a dumb explicit I started to gain speed to this so called "Jump" and then my hood just flew off my car like WHOOSH! I sat there like ZOMG DOPE!, of course i was still driving to the jump. As i watched the hood fly off my POS car I then hit the jump around 84MPH which set me flying into the air and into the ground like a sack of dead babies. "TOTALED" came up on my screen and i said that was awesome, to bad I don't have theater mode...The physics of the damage done to the car are nice. When you happen to be going over, God knows how fast, the body kit start to shake and wobble like plastic which is quite impressive for NF.
Well for the beginning first race like all NFS's you get some random "donkey" *caughasscaugh* car they think you should start off with, just this time it was a Nissan 240sx. You then race and win, of course because all of you should be pro race car drivers right? Anyway after that you end up going to this event called Battle Machine where there are four (4) events. Two of them being Drag races, Time Attack and Grip.
Get the Best time then the other Asian drivers, because we all know them Asians can't drive worth shit.
Race like your a black man being chased by the cops but with more control than a Buick on 24" rims.
Get to the finish line before the other SoB does. Three (3) Tries to get top time.
Those happen to be the only four (4) events that I have played but like all NFS, SPOILER! you race cars around. Anyway the Drag Racing has improved from the last few NFS games. When you pull up the Announcer begins to talk about...Then you end up having to warm up your tires which helps gripage on the track. You have to use your acceleration trigger aka RT to follow this bar that moves back and forth...sorta to get your burn out up. They give you about 60 seconds to do this. After you have phailed horribly you wait for the secksay lady to start the race. You shift and go fast to win the race! yaay.
Now onto the Car selection, Tuning, other Bull Sh*t. First off don't buy the car packages off the market place on XBL, you can earn them by going through the game supposedly.
Choosing a car:
It was kind of depressing seeing as some of your beloved drifting cars are not allowed to drift! WTF! Subaru WRX STi being one (1) of them. Also if you buy the market place car bundles you can buy them for nothing! but you also sell them for nothing, so you can't "Farm for gold...Lightning Bolt!". The cars do look pretty though.
Upgrades and Customization:
Seeing as this is more realistic than other NFS games you get to customize just about damn near everything! what? wanna fight about it? Anyway, You can customize your body kits and other aerodynamics for the best performance it can have. Wind Tunnel you say? Yes, there is one! You can put your car into a wind tunnel and try and set up four (4) zones for your front bumper and two (2) zones for just about everything else to improve your cars performance on the track.
The upgrades for your car can either be paid for by ca$h you earn through the game or you can use your Microsoft points to buy them. Which is a unique feature for a game. Although the downfall for that is having that twelve (12) year old kid having his parents buy him Microsoft points just to show off and be a tard. Also to say explicit words he just learned that day, like beeeeep, beep, beeeep, and of course beeeeeeeeeeep.
There is also a quick upgrade system that you can use to purchase two (2) packages. Power and Traction packages should speak for themselves but I will fill you in. Power will upgrade all the stuff that will improve your top speed and acceleration. Traction package will tune your brakes, suspension, and tires for epic win! It is meant for the people who don't want to spend that much time into actually tuning there beast of a car.
The vinyl and paint in the game are like any other game but the paint has a few more options. I think Iridescent, Pearlescent, Chrome, and Candy paint make your car look extra clean.
Altogether this game would be a recommend for people who enjoy racing games. It brings some decent graphics to the table and also some new features to play around with. The game like all racing games still have some faults but shouldn't keep you from picking up this title.
