If they can accurately map major roads and also include an "Explore mode" with no restrictions, like in GTA you can go almost anywhere, it would be great.
Would love to have a streets of Delhi also and then drive by home!

Doesnt look like Mumbai at all...
Where is the traffic? Where is the huge amount of public crossing the roads??
And most important where are the Pot Holes??


It would be really great if some one makes a game not about racing in Mumbai But driving in Mumbai, something like that Hard Truck games!

I love the other games though yodhas wanted theme type. All the color and those astras from our mythology will sell really well. Coming to think of it we have real "Mortal Combat" type stuff in Indian Mythology.

By the way do you guys think the Streets of Mumbai game is based on the same engine as the NFS Underground? I mean instead reprogramming the entire game from scratch they probably used the same landscaping engine etc.?

There are a couple of friends of me who are working there. last i heard form them was that the NHC was being made and Swift. Whatever this turns out to be but i will check it out for sure

The most interesting thing is that they can't make 100 replica of the real world models due to copyright stuff. So custom made parts etc should be there.

I would love to get a copy of this game. Any idea on release and availability? I am crazy about NFS and own or played most of the versions like Underground, Most wanted, Hot pursuit. Yet to lay my hands on Pro Street, Heard its reallly good.

Looks pretty promising! Like akshay said, some more bad roads would make it more realistic

Looking forward to its release!
