  • Summary: Overall for its price you can't really go wrong, it offers a fair amount of good gameplay with plenty of tricks and is better than its Xbox competitor Splashdown. The addition of online play also adds to the longevity of the game. Unfortunately the fact that it's a budget title does mean it's limited in areas. If your looking for a filler until your next full price purchase then Carve is probably your best option.

  • Conclusion: ...Because as much as you can poke holes in this game, the challenging career mode and the highly playable multiplayer (including excellent Xbox Live support) mean that at its low price Carve is an excellent racing alternative for those who've driven PGR2 into the ground, or perhaps just need a change of surface. If you have Xbox Live then pound for pound this is one of the most accomplished, funnest and wettest games you'll buy this year.
  • Pros: Lovely, varied water effects., Good split screen and Xbox Live modes., Carve is nice and cheap, so you don't have to, goodbye to much cash., Does everything that the more famous Jet Ski racers did, but does it online too.
  • Cons: There's nothing particularly groundbreaking here and it's unlikely to hold your attention for long., Tricking is vital to success, and will be a turn-off to some racers., Without wanting to, any spirits, Carve isn't the, game in the world and won't make much of a, in the charts.

  • Conclusion: 17 /20 Forza Motorsport 3 profite des bases fort solides de son prédécesseur pour nous offrir une simulation qui peut faire office de référence sur console. Les développeurs ont recalibré le gameplay, ils l’ont amélioré et ils ont ajouté tout un tas de petites améliorations et autres nouveautés qui font que le soft est suffisamment accessible pour combler les néophytes et suffisamment complet pour satisfaire les habitués.
  • Pros: Contenu conséquent, Marge de progression appréciable, Interface classe, Multijoueur solide, Gameplay équilibré, Prise en main excellente au pad et volant, Modélisations des véhicules, Souci du détail sur les circuits, Le rembobinage facultatif, Gestion des dégâts sur la physique, Nombreux réglages, Accessibles pour tous, Jeu en écran splitté…
  • Cons: Mais pas optimal, Chargements longuets, Vue cockpit moyenne, Manque de vie général, Ni météo, ni course de nuit, Gestion des collisions pas toujours au top, Quelques petits soucis graphiques

  • Conclusion: 14 /20 Carve n’est probablement pas le tueur de Wave Race mais il arrivera très certainement à convaincre les amateurs du genre avec ses nombreuses possibilités et ses circuits toujours plus fous. Un jeu qui, malgré des petites erreurs de parcours s'en sort bien. Fun, bien réalisé, long, jouable en ligne et, cerise sur le gâteau, vendu à la somme de 45 euros environ ce qui est tout à son avantage… Que demander de plus sinon une éventuelle suite ?
  • Cons: Trop d’effets visuels !, Parfois brouillon, Manque de joueurs online
