Need For Speed: Carbon

Strategy Informer
2 January 2008
  • Conclusion: The Need For Speed series is hardly regarded as the most innovative in the racing genre, but it’s hard not to feel a little disappointed by Carbon’s unwillingness to push any boundaries, especially after the jump for the franchise that Most Wanted represented. It’s undoubtedly fun, but it’s debatable whether it’s worth a purchase, especially if you already own its predecessor.

  • Excerpt: The sign of an effective series or franchise, in the gaming industry is the ability to evolve. To continue to do what you do well, while adding new elements, eliminating those that don’t work, and always polishing what remains.

  • 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.

Need for Speed Carbon

Defunct Games

  • Summary: Overall I felt this game was a step backward in the series. Fans of the 2 year old Underground game will love this one, while fans of Most Wanted may want to sit this one out. I prefer Most Wanted to this game, just because it seemed to be more of a challenge and I was more excited to play. This product was submitted by the publisher for review. As a rule, Defunct Games does not review games we spent money on. However, that does not always apply to classic/retro games.

  • Summary: Most Wanted still graces our 360 and PS2 on a regular basis as it is such a great game and with the exception of one or two racing titles released in the last 12 months it is the best racing sim out there, until now! Need For Speed Carbon is the next installment in the Need For Speed franchise and it's set to blow everyone away!

  • Conclusion: Auch hier setzte man auf bereits bewährte Dinge; Speicherbatterie und die Unterstützung mehrerer Sprachen gehören eigentlich fast schon zur Grundausstattung eines jeden Titels für den Gameboy Advance. Die Streckenauswahl fiel eher dürftig aus und auch den Tuningladen kennt man nach kurzer Zeit in- und auswendig.

  • Excerpt: Cítíte to? Ten zápach benzínu a spálených pneumatik? To neznamená nic jiného, než že závodní série Need for Speed se dočkala svého již desátého pokračování, nyní s názvem Need for Speed: Carbon. Nejnovější díl je opět plný tuningu, krásných drahých automobilů a honiček s policií, přináší však i několik novinek a zcela nový příběh.

  • Summary: větší obrázek Zdroj: Aktuálně.cz 00:00 | 13.11.2006 | Tomáš Richter Jedna z nejúspěšnějších závodních sérií Need for Speed se dočkala dalšího pokračování v podobě odnože Carbon. V poslední době se stává značka Need for Speed doslova dojnou krávou molochu EA, podobně jako tomu je v případě sportovních titulů. Stín kontroverzní politiky zahalil i studio Black Box, jež každoročně vydává nové díly nejpopulárnější závodní série.
  • Pros: Velké množství vozidel, revoluční technologie Autosculpt, Duel v kaňonech, poutavý příběh, perfektní filmečky.
  • Cons: Málo novinek, nízká herní doba, opakující se závody, nepříliš inovativní grafické zpracování, špatná viditelnost v horách.
