ok well i finished the demo....
not EXTREMELY undergroundish :D
ok so..let's see
graphics 9/10
don't see any HDR (correct me if i'm wrong), damage model looks great but it won't blow you off your seat. smoke is indeed very nice, cars are well modeled, steady frame rate, shadows look a bit wierd but i can live with that. basically looks like an enhanced MW engine
sound 10/10
game sounds great, music (the one in the demo) seams cool too (no more damn Retards Attempting Poetry)
gameplay 9.9/10
it's there but not quite... i don't know to tell you exactly what i didn't like.... car physics are ok but not really NFSish driving line is dumb and you lose if u follow it (not allways the BEST line given), the demo features a grip race which is a normal 2 lap circuit race with a dumb name and a speed challenge which is exactly as the MW speed challenge (same goal) on a desert high-way
for the grip race u have the new nissan skyline or whatever it's called and for the speed one u have an m3 (cooler than the damn nissan)
overall 9/10 i will buy it for sure.

BTW play on KING difficulty cuz otherwise it's just a waste of time...
EDIT: don't crash too much in the speed challenge cuz ur car gets totaled (just did it)

Sinister
10-23-2007, 09:50 AM
yup.. everyone will crash in the speed challenge lots.

i just did once again, launched, major air time, and landed and rolled about 12 times.
i was in the lead too :(

the demo has alot of the feel the pre-beta had when I played it at the last community day in august.

a little shorter track, but still great to play..

for anyone else.. if you test it, you'll buy it.

no.

demo only includes two races, with a Bmw E3 and Nissan Proto on the autobahn and nevada tracks.

as well, the damage is a little stronger now, you have a bit more leeway in what you can do before getting light damage..

Pro Street looks nice, drives good, damage is visually overrated and physically underrated, I beated the 2 races in King difficulty in the first try, so I guess it's gonna be a quite easy game. Certainly it's not a remake from the Underground game engine (U, U2, MW and Carbon were the same game, with lots of patches!:D) It's totally a different game and in the first feel and look, it could take the Need for Speed name back to it's real meaning... At least, looks like EA is trying to do so... wich I suppouse are good news.

Sinister
10-23-2007, 11:12 PM
I'll let you in on a little secret.. the game was Toned WAY down for the demo, to please all demo-ers.
the game itself shouldnt be as easy.

from our contact -

I agree that the demo was a little on the easy side, but I've been told that it was designed with the assists turned up a bit which should explain that.

That's good! I hope that those electronic controls can be turned off!!

Both cars in the demo (M3 and GTR) look great and feel nice! The M3 is great, also the GTR... well, in the game, actually, is an ugly car...

Sinister
10-24-2007, 09:47 AM
yeah, you can turn all assists off in the full game, which will make it more challenging for most players.


as for the M3 and GTR, i Wont be using them in the FullGame either.

10-24-2007, 01:55 PM
I read over at the death-box 360 forums that there is some serious frame rate spikes and drops in the demo. Anybody concur?

Hopefully the PC version demo will respond to a more powerfull platform, even though the game was probably programmed for the 360 first and formost.

That's great news, the demo actually looked reasonably difficult even with the assists (ABS TC SC) turned on :) Maybe the game without the assists will be even more realistic than I could have possibly hoped for :wink3: Thanks for keeping us updated guys.

Downloaded the demo when it first came out. And it was way better than I exspected it to be. Nice to see they got that stupid auto brake out. (you know where you BARELY press on the gas and your tires spin constantly). The BMW looks cool but to many stickers. The GT-R proto looks kind of gay, but it does have a nice sound to it. I think this NFS is what i been looking for all along, some racing for once.

The only info missing from EAs release schedule was that the moderator posting it said he would update the demo info as the time drew nearer. Well, the xbox demo came out already and still no updated info is posted at the official forum as promised.

So all I can "assume" is that things are on track because the xbox demo was released exactly as planned.

Anyway it sounds and looks like the game is more like NFS1 &2 than anything else. It will be nice to play it on the PC with a real wheel too. Only PS3 owners will have a decent wheel usable on the console platform.

Absolutely! Start talkin' any time. You see that's the problem. Mum seems to be the word around here. Is someone trying to crush all enthusiasm for the demo or game?

So is the new info for Nov 2nd posted above on the NFS site correct? That info was not there on Sunday evening.

SLP Firehawk,
I did check it out as soon as I read your post. Thank you very much for the heads up. I also read that same revolving time line twice all the way through Sunday night just to make sure I didn't miss anything, and the PC demo info was not there. Just as there is no info on the PS3 demo there now, but will be added in between eventually.

But "the feeling" I get here at NFS CARS is that our mods have some sort of inside track or are chummy with the official EA team. So I ask them if this new date of Friday the 2nd is for sure. Unfortunately, another "feeling" I also get around here is "shut up and stop asking".

no, you get, wait until we hear for sure. And one of us will announce it.

here's the official word i got was

In regards to the other demos, PC should be up around the last week of Oct/First week of Nov. and PS3 should hit somewhere close to the game's launch date.


so We will tell you when we know, ok. :)

Shazee083- you have earned yourself a ban for that comment. Enjoy "your" house for the duration of it.

NFS Pro Street Demo and new video are both out NOW on the Playstation Network.
It's 907mb. Downloading now.

Looks like Sony got their engines in high gear and pulled this one off even before the PC demo. It's not even listed on the official PS site yet. So if you don't have the x360 and do have the PS3 you are in luck.

Looks like I have a better inside track for news than the mods here eh? Remember, you heard it here first LOL.

Yea, weird. The PS3 demo is out 10 days before the PC demo is scheduled to come out....and there was no warning of the PS3 demo coming out, it just appeared. Whatever. I guess all of us PC users will just have to wait another 10 days or so...

The PS3 demo is not so good visually. The frames are very jittery, even crawling along at 10mph. The sceenery textures seem to be simplified also. Not buying that version for sure.

Don't know where the 10 days until PC demo idea came from.

And as far as the remarks about "being a man" and "not having a life" go; I don't waste time on people that can only think to resort to such childish hostility.

@OZ, your first remark dirrected toward me was so erroneous and off based I just ignored you altogether and figured you were having a bad day. This comment however classifies you as completely ignorant. If you impute wrong motives onto someone else (which you did), it is you not they that need to appoligize. If all you can do on a topic is hurl defamitory remarks against people then I think you need to take some time out for some retrospect.

@Lambolover, Do you know where your "you have no life" ramark came from? The TIMELINE on the NFS PS site says Nov 2. If you had read just a few post up you would have known that and not made that uninformed comment. That's all I'm trying to say.

So BOT, has anyone beside me tried the PS3 demo? The actual game looks like a winner...on some other platform though.

LamboLuver
11-02-2007, 03:09 PM
Oh crap. I read that completely wrong. I saw on the timeline the date 2.11.2007, and I read it as the 11th of the month (completely ignoring the 2). I know it didn't make any sense but I didn't check my source when I was questioned about it again after I had posted it. I am sorry for me being ignorant. Please forgive me. I will shutup for now.

The Pro Street PC demo is up now on EA's public server, but it is going very slowly. My download is showing 5 hours, so I will probably cancel and wait for fileplanet or something.

I'm probably not supposed to post the link to it here.....it's too slow anyway.
i just found and ftp, but not much faster. Head over to the EA forum if you just gotta do it.

It will probably be available at gaming websites shortly. It's 795mb.

With what periphial do you control the car with on Wii?

I finally got a good file download from filefront. The game looks awsome with all the options on high and in 22" widescreen native resolution.

It also supports steering wheels and the control and FF are really good. Very good control interface with the car. No strange response curves in the steering. If there were, there is no option to change it.

Deffinite advantage in the speed race with the wheel over a game pad. Much easier to pass AI and to pick your line.

It was up in the air as to which version of ProStreet I was going to buy. It's PC version for sure now.
