Rated 10 out of 10 by cmsdude10 Best Street Racing Game
This game had a lot of potential. The graphics and interface were amazing. It was also one of the first games to actually dominate the street racing world. As far as I know there is no other racing game that can compare. The car customization was impressive because of the fact that you could do a feature called Autosculpt, which is when you could design the frame of the cars in any perspective you wanted. The racing is fantastic because you could never run out of races. You could be racing all day with friends and you still would never finish all of them. They give such a variety of tracks and customization. Being able to put vinyls on the car was awesome because you could make your car look so unique and show it off to people online. The cars sound great and the way you can customize the cars performance was sweet too. Pretty much if you are looking for a game that has every little thing about underground street racing and custom cars and all, this is by far the game you must get to satisfy your need for speed.
Rated 9 out of 10 by ImMoRtaL I love this game
I played all NFS games made up til now, This game is really nice, esp the drifting part, its not realistic but its made from tokyo drift. its pretty challenging too. If you want a challenge and movie like drifting then get it. Other then drifting, its really easy. All tracks take 1-2 times to beat (except the last boss). Drifting takes a long time but its fun. The game is not that long overall. Controls are really easy and simple (since its a car game, it doesnt have a lot of controls). Its like most wanted, but with better tracks and cool drifting (its still street racing unlike the new NFS, i hate proper track race so i will never buy it). graphis are pretty cool, with cracks and stuff on road, unlike some games, they try to make it perfect which isnt possible in real life. lots of vehicals, with lots of customization part, the game has specially made challenge series, which will consume a lot of time to finish. You can play online and with your friends, 2 player screen is pretty nice too. Overall I would suggest that you buy the game
Rated 8 out of 10 by Mr Jaquel not the best Need for Speed
This is an ok game. If you like Need for Speed games, then you will probably like it. This game is so short! I mean Need for Speed Most Wanted is longer and has better cars, this game basically just has nice cars, that's the only thing I like about this game. It has a big challenge in some areas. Controls are easy to learn, graphics are good, interface ok, sound great, track variety bad because there is only like 3 different types, vehicle customization is great and variety is pretty good. But this isn't the best Need for Speed game, I would say. The only good thing about this game is the cars, because there are Lamborghinis, Mercedes SLR McLaren, Ford GT, Carrera GT, Audi Le Mans Quattro and more! I would recommend this to people who like easy racing games that may take a week to beat or so. But, I would rent if I were you!
Rated 8 out of 10 by AC3Assassin NFS The Best!
Need For Speed Has Always Been My Favorite Racing Company And I love All of The games They Come Out With, Thinkinh About Getting NFS Most Wanted Some Time Soon (The One Releasing October 30th) NFS The Run Was Alright But I Knew They Could Have Done Lots Better. The Original NFS Underground Games Are So Far My Favorite, The Cars The Racing Maps The Modes, It Was All Fun. Carbon I Liked The Free Roam Idea, I Wish They Had Put That Idea Into The Run. The Original Most Wanted Was Pretty Fun But It Was Not My Favorite. Most All Of My NFS Games Were Either On The PS2 Or GameCubeBut Carbon Was On The PS3. The Boss Races On Carbon Were Pretty Easy. I Favored Getting All Of The Other Racers Cars And Driving Around In Them XD. NFS Carbon Overall is A Great Game And I Wasn't Disappointed. :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by buggyman2233 Awesome game MUST play
this game is awesome i loved it i had it for the ps2 and am probably going to buy it for ps3 because i love it so much. it has amazing graphics and i love the music on it. its a hard game impossible for me if i start with the exotic section. i cannot for the life of me win 1 drifting race but i love all the cars and customization and i like that you have to drive to the car dealership to buy a car in a showroom i love the storyline and i also love the different waves of cops i used to go to the highest city and get as may cops as i can and just destroy them and i love the rhinos you get :) over all awesome game for NFS grew up on them and i just love it awesome job:)
Rated 10 out of 10 by ronniedonnie719 THE Best NFS Games Created, Ever.
Need for Speed Carbon is the greatest NFS game ever created! Carbon features auto sculpt which allows you to customize your car with much more freedom. The array and division of cars is like no other. Career mode is the best career created by EA. During career, you will encounter various challenges, such as taking control of territory, winning pink-slips to Boss Cars, Cost to State, New levels of Police Notoriety, and much more. Play this Need for Speed and you will know what "Need for Speed" means! Trust me, this is coming from a guy who has been playing Need for Speed since since the PSone days!
Rated 9 out of 10 by CoLD Great game for NFS and racing game fans.
I first bought NFS: Carbon for ps2... at least i know it was a long time ago... and i loved it. You can choose out of 3 types of vehicles and start on your career and win all kinds of races. I loved this game so much that i bought it for ps3 since i missed it and couldn't play the ps3 verson on my ps3. I beat the game several times and its a lot of fun for casual to hardcore gamers. Some of the last races can be a great challenge and is really rewarding when you win. Customization for the cars are awesome too. You can add pretty much anything. Its a great buy, in my opinion. :)
Rated 10 out of 10 by aaronart 3...2...1...GO, Get This Game!
I LOVE this game. The creating is good, but how fast the cars went, handled and accelerated didn't seem very truthful, The sound was great and the music was good and very suspenseful the story was pretty dumb you return from the city in Most Wanted and you have to work your way back up, what I most like about this game is the the roam free feature and running away from the cops, but the worst thing about this game is that it doesn't have trophies I KNOW I had that same look on my face!
Rated 6 out of 10 by THEGAMER423 Not as Great as NASCAR: Unleashed
This game is decent, I will give Need for Speed: Carbon that. The problems with this game are is that is is just every single other racing game, there is just NOTHING special to it! It has all the same generic, cool cars and the same generic, urban race tracks. This game is like all others and I would highly recommend you to turn, run and never look back at this game ever again. I'm not trying to be a negative Nelly on this game but it has left me no choice!
Rated 7 out of 10 by lanetrain37 This is not a challenge
