What Gamespot Users have to say about Need for Speed: Porsche Unleashed

  • User Rating 8.7

    The car dynamics in this highly enjoyable game would feel completely different from the other NFS.

    Rated on May 09, 2007 by sharier

    In this fifth NFS installment, EA goes after a single brand of cars- Porche. Okay I will perhaps never get to drive a Porche in real life-- so its an extra incentive for me to try it out in the PC. Y...

    Need for speed porsche is one of the best racing games out there!

    Rated on August 28, 2009 by DennisMenace

    Need for speed porsche was different to every other need for speed, in the respect that you raced on closed roads instead of oncoming traffic, and for only the second time in the whole series, you rac...

    I was about to leave the Driving genre, but this game stopped me from doing so.

    Rated on December 27, 2004 by TheDarthvader

    How often do we see a good driving game come around? The Answer is: very few. All the driving games that I have played, none of them even compare to this one. First of all, this game masters in the m...

    I am a Porsche fan, and this was one game i was ever so happy to have, and yet i still play this game to this day. It is amazing!, the graphics are so far past the time that this game was made and yet...

    Gamespot should have given this game a better score

    Rated on May 08, 2008 by godofhell2

    Positive - Superb career mode - Over 50 Porsche cars - Awesome soundtrack - Ai can be tough sometimes Negative - Even on the open route, the game isn't so big - Frame rate struggles some time...

    Just a bad tie-in for 1 brand of car and offers little variety doing so...

    Rated on February 18, 2006 by THE_DRUGGIE

    Everyone should know what the Need for Speed series is, but some of you might not have heard of this game, and by not knowing what it is, I guess you were better off. Still, this installment in the NF...

    a somewhat weak game

    Rated on August 02, 2007 by ILOVETHEENOT

    this game is rather weak because the crashes aren't very realistic, the cars don't feel like their going very fast, the steering isn't easy to use... 9 times out of 10 your going to be crashing into v...

    Very sloppy, and unfinished describes this game. This is one game that should have spent more time in development.

    Rated on November 22, 2007 by GamersAbyss

    Most Need For Speed games are either insanely fun, medicore, or poor. Ths game fits into none of these categorys and falls into nearly ambysal. The PS1 is capable of delivering better visuals then t...
