Ryan Cooper. Don%26rsquo;t worry if you%26rsquo;ve already forgotten the name since you%26rsquo;ll be hearing ita few timesin Need for Speed ProStreet. It%26rsquo;s the moniker of your driver in Career mode. He%26rsquo;s not the most charismatic character. In fact, he%26rsquo;s practically mute - and you only ever see him with his helmet on - but that doesn%26rsquo;t stop the commentators banging on about him. %26ldquo;It%26rsquo;s Ryan Cooper about to light this race up,%26rdquo; praises one MC. %26ldquo;If it%26rsquo;s too hot in the kitchen get out of Ryan Cooper%26rsquo;s car,%26rdquo; another remarks, nonsensically. By the time we%26rsquo;d finished our first few races, the name %26lsquo;Ryan Cooper%26rsquo; was the equivalent of scraping nails down a chalkboard to a Mika song. Thankfully, this is one small annoyance in an otherwise solid racing game, which marks a welcome return to form for the faltering series.
