Need for Speed: Carbon
Good Racing game
This game is not as good as Most Wanted but it is still a very good racing game. The car selection is better than ever. There are muscle cars, exotics and tuners which will keep everyone happy. The career mode is a bit confusing as far as the storyline but the racing is great and having a crew member to help you win races is pretty awesome. The city in this game looks the best with a downtown area complete with skyscrapers and a beautiful section of city with casinos that resemble Las Vegas. The street layout is not as cool and can be very forgettable. I had to keep looking at the map to get to places so the city isn't as memorable as NFS Underground 2 or NFS Most Wanted. The one thing that get annoying is having to upgrade cars during career because you have to have a fast car by the end game to keep up with the exotic sports cars. The canyon races are confusing at first but then you realize that you accumulate points by staying directly behind the lead car and once that is over then you are in front and the other car takes away your points by being right behind you. All of this goes on while trying not to fall off the edge of the cliff. The drifting is back in this game. There are cops in this game but they don't play as big a role as they did in Most Wanted. To be honest you can finish the career mode without that much cop interaction. This is definitely a game that NFS fans will like.
