Summary: This game is not as good as Most Wanted but it is still a very good racing game. The car selection is better than ever. There are muscle cars, exotics and tuners which will keep everyone happy. The career mode is a bit confusing as far as the storyline but the racing is great and having a crew member to help you win races is pretty awesome.
Excerpt: "Need for Speed Carbon is an action filled street racing game and is a lot of fun to play. In my opinion it is not the best in this genre but it is a good game and well worth playing.

Need for Speed: Carbon (Xbox): Second next-gen Need for Speed
30 June 2008
Summary: Need for Speed Carbon is the second of the series on the Xbox 360 and using next gen graphics.

The graphics haven't improved a huge amount since Most Wanted but still look smoother, especially when racing.
Pros: Good customisation, many cars and improved graphics

Excerpt: "Well when I heard this was coming out I was really exited as I had been reading up on how this was going to be a great game with over 5 million different ways to modify your cars and so forth. So once it came out to buy I rushed myself down to toys-r-us and purchased it for £39.99 and what a waste of £39.99 that was as I was sorely disappointed. Well to start with I purchased it on the Sunday night and by the Tuesday I had completed it fully ...
