Summary: Carbon is a mish-mash of Underground 2 and Most Wanted, yet doesn't surpass either of them in terms of gameplay. Long gone are the fun police chases of Most Wanted: now the chases are dull and unbearingly long.
Summary: Maybe EA called this 'Carbon' because it's very much a carbon copy of Underground 2... only it's not a good copy at all. They were on to something with Most Wanted, but for some odd reason decided to ditch it in favor of regressing 5 years. Here's hoping next year will bring a worthy NFS sequel.
Summary: At first I was hyped up about this game, but after playing it for a week, it just was not fun anymore. First off the graphics of this game when racing look too cartoonish, like racing in a cartoon race. There's also no drag races in this game, you can't have a NFS game without no drag, wake up.
Great Idea And Game Setup... But Bad Quality Control

Summary: I have been waiting for this game ever since "Need For Speed: Most Wanted" came out... And after an hour or so playing it, I ran into a HUGE problem. And I have been wanting this game since I first heard about it because of a)all the cllasic musclecars including HEMI Cudas and Challengers and...
Another rushed release from an obviously too large development team

Summary: I am a huge raciong game fan it is my only leisure pursuit on a PC. I am disappointed that EA Sports have been domineered by their success, and that corporate pressure fueled by market accomplishment has taken the zest out of its releases.
Summary: the best game in the series is most wanted and underground 2. carbon promises so much but fails to deliver. the police chases in most wanted are amazing in carbon they have no real relevance to your career in fact you can complete with out doing a single bounty run.
Summary: Put it next to underground 1/2 and most wanted its utter rubbish. The drift mode is spectacularly bad, even getting the steering slightly wrong ends the drift, its damn near impossible to link a set of drifts together.
Summary: Auch ich habe mich - wie viele - sehr auf das neuestes NFS-Spiel gefreut. Schnell kam das Gefühl auf, daß die Streckenführung aus den Teilen 2 und 3 genommen wurde. Die Verfolgungsjagden haben nicht den geringsten Reiz.
Summary: Ich komme mal nur zur Collector's Edition und spare mir die Kommentare zum Spiel an sich: Ich habe mir die CE bestellt, weil sie noch mehr Autos bietet und ich ein Muscle-Car-Narr bin. Die Bonus-DVD war mir egal, und die geringe Erwartungshaltung wurde auch erfüllt.
