R35 is brutal. :D Ans if the game takes real life stats into account, it should be like 8 secs faster stock.

but it doesn't take real-life stats into account...

ANYWAY, I'm overloaded with cars, and am going to buy a Murcielago soon.

SO, which one to sell?
Grip-R35, EvoX, 911 Turbo, M3 (kreiger)
Drift-RX-7 (kimura), RX-8
Speed-Viper, R34
Drag-Mustang (monroe), Chevelle SS, Supra, Corvette Z06.

So, I am to sell at least 2 cars sometime soon; my ideas are RX-8 and Mustang plus maybe the M3

Get GRID. It's not overly technical, but it's includes a wide variety of adrenaline pumping racing... and is actually very involving. (A challenge unlike NFS)

I am a GT nut, but I don't bother with prologue really... nothing vastly different to the predecessor yet, and the final game loses it's wow factor because you've already gotten used to the graphics... while waiting for GT3 -> GT4 was wild when I started it up for the first time when I got it because it was such an improvement.

The Core 2 Duo is enough to handle processing requirements... how much RAM and what GFX does it have?

Ok, 1gb is ok too... what GFX card? nvidia 8500 should cope on low, and I think ATI x2400

The Pro Street really a bad project for EA. I like the feeling of NFSMW, and NFS undercover is the type I like.With the long highway to run, not like NFSPS got the direct road and always play in a bad environment. Without cloudy day, rainy , overbright ,...
Hope NFSUC will have the weather such like that.
Hopefully ! :)

Sooo, I actually thought of getting ProStreet (yes, after a year), despite all the negative reviews, only to keep me preoccupied until Undercover comes out. I must say that even though the handling is totally different (I almost failed to finish my first race), after a few races I got the hang of it and it's actually not a bad game. I can see why the closed circuit racing and the poor handling will turn off some people but considering I haven't played an NFS game in over a year, my craving for racing was too huge to ignore.

I'm running the game on my new laptop at a resolution of 1024x768 with maximum car detail and smoke on and low world detail. Runs smoothly and nicely (between 30 and 45 fps) despite my underpowered video card. This is definitely a keeper until Undercover comes out at least.

Agree with that entire comment. I guess people are that familiar to street racing that they'll think it's the end of the world if there ever was a legal street racing NFS game.

IMO the Extender Bundles have kept me coming back and prevented me from leaving it on the shelf. Bugatti Veyron for Speed FTW!

OK well I havn't been on here in a long time, nor have I had a computer that could run anything (the last nfs i could play was most wanted). But I just got a brand new laptop that can play anything and I really don't feel like reading all 500 posts on here so could someone tell me: Is Pro-Street worth the money?

Definitely not if you're a sim person, cause a sim this definitely ain't, no matter what EA say. The tuning is wrong, the bodykits are ugly as shiznit, and you can actually run faster times with stock suspension in a Chevy Camaro...

But, if you don't care about any of that, get it. Just look out for Rudy Chen and you'll be fine :wink:

Rudy Chen... #-o

Anyhow, I just noticed one small thing about Prostreet-All muscles handle like sail-barges, even when you've got all the suspension upgrades. WTF!!! I would think that a Camaro, with stage 3 suspension, would handle better than a 180sx with stock???

Actually it's a matter of tuning; some muscle cars, when properly tuned, go from super-heavy-and-understeery to oversteer-y (not a great change but it makes them usable with if you have a wheel).

I'd say rent it first. Some think it sucks, but others (like me) think it's decent and will last you until Undercover. If you like it, you buy it. If you don't, move on with life.

Well, if you want to be a part of the showroom, try it out and that, but GRID is more fun.

would this game be worth it to go pick it up in the used bin for $20? I skipped this game because it wasn't that promising.

You'll certainly get $20 worth of entertainment value from it. Go for it.

I agree. I'd never thought I'd be saying this, but IGN showed a little common sense when they reviewed it. A 6.8? Considering the fact that ProStreet is a track racing game without Free Roam, Cops, and the usual stuff, I expected it to be bashed from start to finish.

$20 is fair for it. I think you'll get enjoyment out of it, play online, and the drag, speed, drift and circuit offer decent variety.

I agree also. Assuming it was $50 when it first came out, $50 is a bit steep. Get it used, saves you money. If I hadn't bought Carbon, I could afford half of Undercover's price. :( But IGN's review of THAT game and Sonic Unleashed IMO seemed unprofessional and also gave me the impression that they had Rockstar's (Midnight Club) yardstick wedged up their @$$. I'll continue reserving judgment until I own the game on PC.
