Pro Street is more about track days, so no free roam. Just laps around circuits and it seems to be more orientated towards people who are into street racing but not the realism of games such as Forza or Gran Turismo. On the upside, you do get a feel as though you're more in control of your car, and there's loads of extras to keep you playing. Plus, there's no cops around, so no annoyingly difficult chases that go on for hours and you still end up getting caught.
Most Wanted is the best of all the NFS games, in my opinion. With it, you get exactly what Need For Speed is about - street racing. Think of it as Underground / U2 but better, as a sequel should be. The main upshots are you can have fun trying to reach top speeds of different rides and how they handle in free roam if you get bored, which in turn makes your races easier, as you get used to your ride and its limits, and outrunning the cops time and time again. The downside is, obviously, less realism.
It depends which kind of racing you like. Circuits/tracks, or proper street racing. I'd go for Most Wanted, as if you're looking for a realistic racing game, Gran Turismo or Forza/Project Gotham Racing are the ones to go for.
