Summary: So I have need for speed Carbon for the Xbox and Wii. This version for the Nintendo DS is nothing like the versions of the game on the actual big consoles. Controls are difficult and hard to get used to the game is extremely boring and you play for about 10 min. and nothing happens. I played for about 20 min. and had to put it down because it was not fun at all. And I have not played since.
Summary: Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City finds the latest edition in EA's long running street racing series getting shrunk down for the DS. Now, before you go thinking this game will be a terrible translation (much like Burnout Legends was a while back, and Need for Speed: Most Wanted on the DS anyway), think again.
Summary: There are so many times that racing games have either made it for gamers, or just crashed within the sounds of the dust. That has been the case previous for games like Mario Kart: Super Circuit for the Game Boy Advance, and Sonic Drift 2 from Sega's Game Gear days. That same thing could also be said for the Need For Speed series. Although it has exceled on the home consoles like the PS2, and Xbox, it hasn't had its fair share on the handhelds like the Nintendo DS.
Summary: I once played this video game after intravenously injecting cocaine without injecting heroin afterwards. As you can imagine, the crash, or the comedown was devastating. Racing through the streets, feeling the upsurge, the rush, but when the crash came, driving down these streets, simulated video game style became dingy, depressing, full of fear. But that was years ago. How can one not remember a video game after something like that?
