Need for Speed Carbon

Gameguru Mania
8 May 2007
  • Excerpt: Need for Speed: Carbon is the latest installment in the Need for Speed series. Despite it using the same engine like the previous game, Need for Speed: Carbon has a very different look from Need for Speed: Most Wanted, which took place in a nicely varied city. Now, Need for Speed: Carbon takes the action to the canyons; as the game's motto declares "What starts in the city, ends in the canyon!

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: Time flew by while I played Carbon and before I knew it I was nearly done with it. It seemed so much bigger than it actually was. The racing is solid, especially the drifting, where you can see yourself improve every time you play. The new canyon duel is an interesting riff on traditional racing, but it's hardly worth buying the game all over again if you've played previous incarnations. Carbon is vapid, but fun. Just know what you're getting into.

  • Conclusion: But this is the NFS franchise, and in my opinion it'll only return to its glory days when the physics engine is made more realistic and when the millions of dollars spent on hiring models and actors to appear in worthless productions to further the story are cut from the game. They are cancerous growths, in good need of some radiation therapy. Still, it's a fun game with some nice innovations that almost hits the target dead centre. Maybe next time...

Need for Speed: Carbon review

  • Conclusion: The game does press forward, and should please fans of the series, but while it is a fun racing game, the enjoyable predecessor is now available for cheaper, and may be worth picking up instead.

Need for Speed Carbon PC Review

DarkZero
1 December 2006
  • Excerpt: Like many other EA titles, the Need for Speed franchise goes through a fresh incarnation each year. But is this next instalment worth your hard-earned (or possibly laundered) money? With this review concentrating on the PC version (the PS2 review can also be found here and, unlike some websites, is actually different!) the answer would seemingly be that, yes, if you like your arcade racers this is worth a go.

Need for Speed Carbon PS2 Review

DarkZero
27 November 2006
  • Excerpt: Another Christmas, and yet another NFS game rolls onto the shelves. But can it possibly still have all of the rapid goodness that you remember from the old days? In short, yes. But, when it comes to the question of is it any different, you might find EA um-ing and ah-ing. First off, you get the usual intro warning all you fast and furious wannabes that when the game turns off, so does your invincibility.

Need for Speed: Carbon

PC GURU
9 June 2007
  • Excerpt: A Need for Speed sorozatot a cég kanadai óriásstúdióján belül a Black Box nevű csapat készíti 2002 és a Hot Pursuit 2 óta – és ahogy az eladási sikerek mutatják (sokmilliós bestseller minden epizód), valószínűleg az idők végezetéig minden év végén elő fognak állni egy-egy új résszel…
  • Pros: + minden szebb és jobb, + az új funkciók remekül sikerültek
  • Cons: - nehézség továbbra sem állítható, - belső nézet hiánya
