Need for Speed: ProStreet Discussion
The appeal of the true NFS games was that you could get a chance to know what real supercars are like without selling your soul. Then Fast and the Furious started the Underground craze. The appeal was now that you could take normal (on the most part) cars and modify them beyond what would be possible in real life. They tried SUV's but that flopped. The addition of muscle cars was a huge hit in Carbon. Now why not just join all those?
Take the exotics of the true NFS games and don't make any fake stupid looking body kits for them, just stop mods at paint colour and rims. Then take the tuners and add the modifications from Underground 2. Finally, the muscle cars, with their shaker hoods and wheelie bars. Now you have something for everyone; Exotics, Tuners, and Muscle.
I think the tracks also need reworking. The tracks from the true NFS games were very well made. They were all unique and fun to race on. Free roam might be cool but it doesn't make the game better, there's nothing useful involved with the free roam. EA really needs to make things more interesting, the races in Pro Street offer no danger besides some damage to your car. The illegal racing games had no danger whatsoever as the cars were indestructible and the racing was much too easy. They need to make tracks like they used to and for once give us a real challenge.
As far as pursuits go, maybe bring back the original hot pursuit style where you could also be a cop.
The problem that EA has is they try too hard to impress. Don't just cram features into the game (SUVs, 10 star rating), make them fit into the story so they are actually worthwhile additions to the game.
Over-exaggeration. SUVs were clearly an after-thought in NFSU2, whereas legal street racing clearly has some meaning to it, and it has appealed to some. SUVs were a bad idea through and through, and as a result nobody could really give a damn about them.
@SS89: I'm with ya. That should be the foundations of which all NFS games in the future are based on. I did mention a compromise, IIRC.
