Well, it’s been a while since a Need for Speed game looked great. Most Wanted was alright, but Carbon was a complete disaster and the two Underground games were clever but shallow.
ProStreet, name aside, is going to be brilliant. Gone are the nasty nighttime-only city-based events and in their place are the shiniest US courses yet, some pulled direct from the official American Formula Drift championship series, meaning tracks from New Jersey, Seatle and California, all bathed in glorious sunshine.
There’s no cheesy story this time – ProStreet simply requires you to beat a leaderboard of racers in a variety of event types such as Speed Racing (open highways), Grip Racing (circuits), Drift Racing and (yay) the return of one-on-one Drag Racing.
