Need For Speed: Carbon
we need more games like this
First of all i would like to say we need more games like this street racing and car customization. All the racing game that have came out are like nascar racing or something there not good at all there car customization is horrible. The car selection for this game is out of this world because it has from exotic to muscle you can customize your car like crazy because you can go from choosing your rides height to the many vinyls.The game itself is realy good because your fighting for territory so its kind of a war game.The difficulty is excellent, espesialy in the canyon when you face the boss of each territory.But the games music selection sucks! But thats not important in a racing game, but Need For Speed Undergroud had the best music selection with stuff like T.I., Lil John And The Street Boys. So I would definitely reccomend this game for anyone who is looking for a chalenging racing game.
Carbon > Almost any other NFS
I have to say, Need for Speed: Carbon has to be one of the top 3 Need for Speed games of all time. Or top 5, to alot of other people. It's a classic. It gives you hours of enjoyment, and I mean hours. It may be a little out of date, but hey, that doesn't mean anything! It's still crazy fun. Carbon can get very frustrating, though... But it's challenge for me! Just...the whole game is fun by itself. Cruising around, customizing a ton of cars, racing, 2 player battles, reward cards, evading the cops, etc..etc... You get what I mean, right? Plus, Need for Speed: Carbon got it's own Arcade machine! It's in alot of arcade places, now. It proves how good of a game it is. ;) Also, online mode is pretty fun. Overall, I recommend the Xbox 360 version of Carbon. I have Carbon for the PS2, PS3, and have played it several times on my 360. All I gotta do is buy it for my 360. It just feels better on the 360, for me. So if you don't have this game, go out and spoil yourself! :D Have fun!
The Need for Speed is Here!
I remember when I used to play Need for Speed Most Wanted with my friend at his house. We were little at the time, and we knew no better then to crash into cars and get chased by cops. Those were some good times, and the good time may continue with Need for Speed Carbon. The graphics in this game are very good, but nothing too impressive. The gameplay has a lot of speed (Well, it's the Need for Speed series!) Controlling your car is very nice. They had to make sure that turning was easy if you go insanely fast during the races, and they succeeded in that. The game consists of a free-roam town, kind of like Grand Theft Auto, but you are trapped in a car the entire game. You can pause the game and go to your map, and through there you can go to races and challenges to take over zones and soon dominate the entire city. All the street races are excellent, and the drifting events are actually fun once you get used to them. The only type of races that bother me are the canyon races. They just are not very fun. But thankfully there are only about 6 or so of them in the game. The carreer mode is decently long and very enjoyable to play. The story is alright, but full of cocky characters. Now no Need for Speed game is complete without the cops (besides NFS Shift, which rocked, and NFS Pro Street, which wasn't that great). The cop chases are intense. You don't run into the cops a lot during the races, but if you feel like causing havoc in free-roam, you are sure to get into a chase. The game also has an online mode. It's simple, but fun. Not much to say about the online, it is simple online fun. PROS: Great carreer mode, epic races, fun cop chases, leangthy story, good car customization, fun online. CONS: Bad canyon races, would have been nice to see more track variety. Need for Speed Carbon is an intense racing game. So come on, (I know this is corny, but...) Get the Need for Speed!!!
One of the last great NFS
This game is very good and I have had the orginal PS2 and Collectors Edition PS2 version and even had it for PS3 too. I played it since it first came out in ''06 and by far it is 10 times better than The Run. Even though it doesn't have a Bugatti Veyron in it it still has great cars From the Porsche Carrera GT to the Chevy Corvette Z06 and supercars that aren't even being made any more like the Ponitac GTO, Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren, Lamborghini Muricelago, and the Dodge Viper. If your looking for a cheap $20 game this is worth it and if you have a 360 you can unlock most of the cars before you even start the game with the amont of DLC it has. The only downside is that they don't include the 1992 Nissan 240 SX S13, or the 2007 Jaguar XKR.
very fun NFS experience!!!
need for speed:carbon is an amazing NFS game. it has so many races, and infinite customization of your car. this is all about winning, taking over you rivals' turf, and going to the canyon to beat them and gain their turf, also evading the cops every chance you get. overall great NFS experience.
Need for Speed Carbon has varierty of cars but the game itself is not very challenging. Good Game though! It also has the dodge charger. The game is also similar to their last game Most Wanted. The game combines the best parts of the the past need for speed series game into to one. The setting is also very unique. The game is based on a city near a mountain where driving on the edge of the cliff is very important. One of the features I enjoyed was the chose of cars at the beginning. You are allowed to chose from three different cars. One of the cars is a exotic, one of them is a muscle, and one of them is a regular tuner. The game also allows the player to unlock one new item (car, part, player card) per won race. The player also has the chose of choosing his or her racing partner. The layer can choose from three racing partner. Overall the game is just another NFS game but for the price it is still worth paying for!!
When i originally played this game I was blown away! And even now a days i still think it's pretty amazing, especially because the graphics can still compete with many of todays games :D Play this game and there is no doubt you will like it.
This game has its ups and downs, but overall, i really like it. I was glad to find out that it let me customize my car, because for me, that is a must. The only thing i don't like is that the bosses are nearly IMPOSSIBLE to beat. So if you're looking for a challenge so hard that you'll tear your hair out, get this game... I;m just kidding this game's ok.
great game to own
this game is a must have if your into racing games.i have nfs carbon for the 360 and it is great,great cars,awesome customazation,intense sound,just perfect,as for graphics,this game is from 2006 and it can still compete with some of the games of today
Drift away from classic racing...
I got this game and thought "I wonder what it's like". Well, I'll tell you that if you like street racing I think you'll like this game. First of all, you race against other opponents in the downtown areas of Palmont City, unlocking cars and car parts as you go. Once you have enough you can go and add it to your career car or one of your "my cars" cars. That means nitrous, customizable rear and front bumpers, tailpipes, colors and more. Then you can take your car out for a free roam, show it off to (and crash into) innocent traffic cars, and run away from the police. Watch out, because getting busted too many times means losing your car. Eventually you will beat the majority of the4 races in n area, and the boss of that area will see you as a threat. When this happens you will be challenged to a race in the city. If and when you beat that race you will move on to an intense canyon duel. In these races you will be either trying to pass or stay as close to as possible, the boss. When you pass the finish line without getting too ffar behind, it is your turn to lead the race. This time you will try to stay ahead of and pull away from the boss enemy. If he does a better job of tailgaiting you than you do of him then you will lose the race before the finish line comes. However, the opposite is true if you finish in time and you will unlock something (usually a car) for career mode as well as something for quick race mode. There are several different types of races. Whether you are in career mode or quick race mode you are able to play in canyon duels, canyon sprint races, city sprint races, circuit races, and drift events, where you get points by drifting around corners on a track. The game is fun, creative and lets you do pretty much anything you could do in real life in these situations. If you think you will like it, you probably will. Now race to get it!
