  • Summary: Need for speed carbon is pretty good for some racers. the races are good the police pursuit are quick and cool, but i wish there were more bosses(like one boss for each car types and tier), keep the money prizes the same(every time you win a race with any amout of the cash prize like 5,000, 10,000, 20,000, 25,000, or even 50,000 , the cash prize for winning again you only get 500,witch make it hard to earn more money to pay for parts and cars), get dauruis car in career...

  • Summary: This is one of the best Need for Speed games that I have ever played. If you are ready for easy controls and challenging gameplay. The only thing that is challenging is the boss races and canyon duels. If you could get one tip from me. I would say have a nice nitrous kit ready to go.

  • Summary: Well if you have owned NFSMW, and your great at evading and "playing" with cops, then this is the game for you! It does have so much content, but because it's done at night, unlike most wanted ,there are no ugly buildings and roads, and the graphics are sharper and clearer. And the cops have a BRIAN! They drive well in this game, and NFSMW was to easy for me even Heat Level Zone 5! This is a good game!
  • Pros: Amazing visuals, Engaging story, Tight controls
  • Cons: Not enough content, Terrible multiplayer

Great game! Canyon part is incredible.

  • Summary: Yet another success for EA and Need for Speed. The cars are excellent and the races are amazing. The cop chases fall a bit short compared to Most Wanted. On the other hand, the canyon races are outstanding. I didn't give it 5 stars because the extra dvd really falls short. I expected detailed information on the cars, but it didn't fullfill my expectations. However, that didn't affect the gaming experience.

Dont like

  • Summary: This was my first Need for Speed game i was exitcted to i played it. The controls are bad for me really when you turn it really goes off balance and the cars go slow when you start it off. The grapchis are awesome for PS2 its amazing i must admit that. The crews part is good to but gets boring after a while. They have so many Maps you and your friend could play o wait...You cant play in some maps with your friend. Cop chases are really great in the game.

OK

  • Summary: It was an OK game. I thought it would be a little better, after seeing most wanted, but it wasn't. The main thing was it was just too short. After I beat Darius, and the game said "Congrats, you have just beaten NFS Carbon," I was like, that's it? All in all, it's just ok. The other 3 bosses were really easy, Wolf was the easiest, I beat him in the race with 25 seconds to spare. In the Canyon Duel, I passed him at the way beggining.

Almost Wanted

TheDawg , GameStop

  • Summary: After playing NFS Most Wanted, I figured I should try out another game in the Need For Speed series. I loved the cop chases, I loved the racing, and I loved customizing cars. When I bought NFS Carbon, all I wanted was a clone of Most Wanted and I would be happy. I was also interested by the canyon racing.

The Hero Returns Home

Tommy Nunez "Dark-O", Amazon
10 November 2006
  • Summary: EA has been quit busy with these Need For Speeds Games. Our hero who just happened to escape from Rockport City. Away from Lt. Cross who decides to leave Rockport to get back at our hero. Once again the BMW M3 GTR which was ruined in the first 5 mins of Most Wanted because of Razor now it's Lt. Cross who decides to wreck it in the first 2 mins of the game. Overall I'm about 30% into the game and I can say that the game has it's ups and and downs.
