Need for Speed: Carbon
Thi is the best nfs game ever!!!!!!!!!!. If you don't have this game you are missing out.
Totally awesome game! With 2 player gameplay, realistic graphics, and an awesome career mode, this game is totally rockin'! The cars are downright cool! With all those vehicle customizations, you can have your ultimate dream car! Also, the police are finally back! After several NFS games with no police pursuits, I was relieved when I got this game. They are so cool! You're rippin' police vehicles to shreds and escaping at extreme speeds! Awesome! As for multiplayer, there is so many tracks to choose from (even though they're all in one city)! And everything is at night. Its sort of like Midnight Club where stakes are high and tension is even higher! I also liked the Canyon Duel option where you can go against a friend or CPU at Carbon Canyon where a wrong turn could bring death (literally! You can fall right off the track!). The movie clips are so real, they looked like they were preformed by real actors (even though they are anyway)! If you want a cool, realistic racing game, NFS Carbon is totally for you!
Get it for sure.
One word: amazing. this is definitely my favorite game for the wii. everything about it is spectacular. Story mode is amazing, its long, challenging, the storyline is great, you can customize everything about your car even the way it handles. there is a good variety of cars, besides no ferraris. dont know whats up with that. For the wii the graphics definitely get an A+ in my book. The sound is good. The controls are super easy to get used to and i love them. You have to work to unlock cars, and even after you beat the final bosses you arent done until youve beaten every race. Free roam is awesome and the cops get tougher the more pursuits you get in. You can win bosses cars which is really cool. I could go on forever and i cant think of one negative thing to say. if you ever want a wii game, this is the one to buy!
I got this game about a week ago. It's probably one of the best games I've ever played for the Wii, to be honest. The gameplay is great. Escaping from the cops is extremely fun and I'm glad they brought that back for this game.
The cars are fun to drive. There are three different classes of cars; Exotic (Alfa, Mercedes Benz, etc.) Muscle (Dodge, Chevy, Ford, etc.) and Tuner (Mazda, Mitsubishi, etc.) Exotic cars have super high top speeds, the Muscle cars have fast acceleration, and the Tuner cars have great turning ability The steering with the remote is a little tricky at first, but when you get used to it, it's fun and easy to use.
The customization is awesome, you can pick just about any color for your car(s) and you can change the look of almost anything on the car. The autosculpt feature is totally awesome. There's just something about taking an average Mazda and turning it into a supercharged beast of a car!
I also like the idea of the storyline. It's clever and keeps you interested. It's also long enough to keep you playing for a long time, which I like. The cutscenes have amazing graphics, and the characters look extremely lifelike. There's also some unexpected humor in the story, which I like.
The gameplay graphics are great for a Wii game. The frame rate seems to be pretty high. It never gets slow unless something totally insane is happening on screen (i.e. 10 police cars blowing apart at once while you turn 90 degrees at 120 mph, blowing through a gas station.) Also, I really like how the cars take damage realistically. They get scratched up during driving like a real car would... if anyone was dumb enough to actually go and drive like this in real life.
Finally, the sound is great. The music is good and hasn't irritated me so far. The sounds of high-speed racing are fantastic and really gets you into the game.
All in all, I would recommend this game to just about anyone who is at least remotely a hardcore gamer. It is flat out awesome!
solid racer for the wii
This is a solid arcade style racer for the Wii. Not as demanding as the simulations racers but not as kiddy as most of the other racers for the wii. Lots of unlockables, replayability, customization. There have been some comments about the controls but I didn't have any problems as there are several different control schemes to choose from. I used the nunchuck/wii-mote combo. All around a good arcade style racing game.
10's across the board!!
When I picked up NFS Prostreet on the Wii as my first NFS game, I knew I had found a series I could play over and over. So I picked up Carbon and was incredibly happy. It had cops (my favorite part), it had great cars, it had an awesome overall theme, and it is the best NFS game in the series, and I've played most of them. Unfortunately, I bought it used in 2008 and the CD failed to read after just a year of play. Since then I have always asked to see the condition of the disc BEFORE taking it home. NFS Carbon is my favorite game of all time!! Oh and in my recommendations, you will see the 2010 version of Hot Pursuit. My warning to all: THE WII VERSION IS A BITTER DISAPPOINTMENT!!
It's pretty cool, you can't really go wrong with this game. I'm really upset about the fact that literally out of the following systems; PC, Mac, PS3, Xbox 360, and Wii, Wii is the only one that doesn't support online gameplay, and is also the only system that doesn't have a collectors edition (not that this isn't always the case....). That means a lot of the cars aren't unlockable, a couple you can play in Challenge Series like the Lexus IS. Other than that, the game is awesome and the storyline doesn't put you to sleep. A couple awesome features are the Autosculpt mode, where you get to really go into another dimension into car customization, and Canyon Duels, they're pretty annoying, but once you get past that and get used to the feel, they're pretty cool. And most of all, the reason I got this game, Free Roam. It is upsetting how few racing games offer free roam, especially for my gaming "systems" (Mac, DS, Wii, iPhone) but this is one of the few...Maybe the only...Free Roam game for the Wii. -_- if you haven't already... GET THIS GAME!!!!
Epic racing game for everyone to play!
This is an awsome game that everyone who likes racing games should buy. If you like racing with a high speed action and cops with good cars then get this game!
Best wii racing game i love this game soooo much you have to play this game you can unlock the bmw m3 gtr from need for speed most wanted GET THIS GAME
Solid racing game...
The Good: This game just rocks. I love the graphics, customizing options, and loads of cars to pic from. The sound tracks are very slick and sound effects are good as well. I like having the partner/helper in racing with team effort. It adds a cool dynamic to the game in that you can have a drafter, blocker or a scout. I personally on use the blocker as its just fun to watch him spin their car into a wall. The drafters give you extra boost in passing. The scout find short cuts to help in winning the race. I like the fact that the police are there to either get after you to add another difficulty to a race. I have lost just because I had to many cops on me. The two player is very cool. My son being six... actually can drive and use the controls very well and we race each other. I like how the cars handle and the fact you can use the Wii wheel. The Bad: The drifting controls are just messed up. By this I mean it will take some time to get used to the sensitivity of it. Hint: You can hold the controller parallel to the ground and just tilt left or right to get a more balance feel. The down hill canyon races where you can run off the track sucks! If you drive to close it actually seems to affect the car as it shifts out for a dramatic viewpoint and sucks you off the road and over the cliff. Just not cool. Its the more frustrating than drifting by far. You cant turn that camera feature off either. The Conclusion: The overall package is just levels above anything out there on the Wii. The game offer career mode, quick race, and challenge series for different types of playing. Its setup is nice and pretty simple to use. The customization features are just awesome.
