Need for Speed Carbon (PlayStation 2)

 

Even though the wingman mechanics and canyon races don't quite pan out, it's still a stylish and enjoyable street racer.

Need for Speed: Carbon Review for the PS2

 

Yugo to be kidding me.

Lots of real cars

Poor graphics; No online modes; Annoying wingmen; Too easy

All the next gen racing games I’ve been playing have finally gotten to me. Project Gotham Racing 3, Need for Speed: Most Wanted, Riiiiiige Racer, and Test Drive Unlimited apparently drove their way into my brain and set the parking brake because a few...

EA is betting that a few new twists will send gamers hurtling down Carbon Canyon -- in a good way.

Need for Speed: Most Wanted

 

The long-running Need for Speed series races into new territory with this cross-platform, cross-generational release. Most Wanted is built upon many of the fan-favorite features and modes from previous games in the series, including a forgiving yet credib

Another Christmas, and yet another NFS game rolls onto the shelves. But can it possibly still have all of the rapid goodness that you remember from the old days? In short, yes. But, when it comes to the question of is it any different, you might find...

Need for Speed Carbon

 

It would be really easy to start this review off with a moan about things like how you can tell it must be Christmas soon because this year's versions of all the EA franchises are hitting the shelves, how Need For Speed (NFS) Carbon is just another...

Going back to my original point at the start of this review, it would be easy to bash NFS Carbon as being just another update released for the Christmas rush, but to give it it's due it's a more than decent street racer with a few new ideas packaged...

Need For Speed Carbon for PS2 Review - Regardless of that feeling of déjà vu, Carbon is another solid racer from EA, and the Auto-Sculpt feature is absolutely fantastic.
