Summary: Carbon is THE BEST of the NFS games we've played so far! The canyon racing is challenging, and it's cool to watch your car go flying off a cliff when you hit the flimsy guardrail. You get to win some cool cars, too.
Summary: When I initially installed this game in Windows 7 I was only able to get it to run in Windows 98 compatibility mode... However once the "New Need for Speed Carbon Collector's Edition Patch (1.4)" was installed from [...] the game ran perfectly without compatibility mode. This game also has very low system requirements to run smoothly, however to run at a higher resolution (above 1280x1024) or even widescreen you do have to use a third-party utility to patch the game.
