Editors' review

Though the graphics look better than ever, Need for Speed Carbon seems like a throwback to the early days of the series, when we spent most of our time outracing cops in the desert. The racing action is as fast and furious as ever, and this edition incorporates both city and canyon racing for a variety of thrills and spills. The download is large and the installation lengthy, but the provided content offers an excellent trial of the full version. Customize one of three cars--Chevy Camaro SS, Lamborghini Gallardo, or Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX, in Muscle, Tuner, and Exotic classes, respectively--with the AutoSculpt feature, then take to the city streets with two races to claim territories as your own and unlock a two-car duel along the canyon.

After a brief disclaimer from digitized model Emmanuelle Vaugier and a reminder to always wear your seatbelt, you're transported to the car-selection screen, where you pick your weapon, tweak it as you see fit, then take it into battle. The Circuit Race pits you and three teammates against four of the Scorpions. If anyone on your team finishes first, you win. The Drift Race forces you into many tight curves that require drifting. The more curves you drift through, the more points you earn. The last, unlockable race along the canyon starts in medias res, as you must follow a Scorpion car tightly, then lose him when you take the lead. There's not enough here to keep anyone driving forever, but there's still plenty of fun to be had with this well-produced demo.

    "The download contains a Trojan!"

    May 19, 2012   |   By Mort-Nathan

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    Full Game Pros:

    + Fresh and interesting plot;
    + Very sophisticated environment;
    + Good graphical level;
    + Improved AI;
    + More fun then ever before.

    Cons

    Full Game Cons:

    - Game-play can get a little annoying;
    - Crew driving (my personal opinion);
    - Too short (can be completed within 8-10 hours [a non-demo version])

    Summary

    Have given poor rating due to the lossy demo. THIS IS A VERY NICE GAME, THOUGH.

    "Not as good as NFS Most Wanted"

    November 23, 2010   |   By takumi152

    Version: Not Found

    Pros

    I think adding Muscle cars, drift race and canyon race is good.

    Cons

    Circuit race is could be more harder. But drift race and canyon race is could be more easier. I think some peoples are cannot beat them. If you are going to buy it, you should buy NFS Most Wanted.
