Need for Speed Carbon


Need For Speed Carbon is basically a port of the Xbox version of the game. Obviously, it plays a whole lot different due to the Wii's control scheme. If you're a fan of the Need for Speed series, you may have been hoping for something completely...

Although Need for Speed Carbon on the Wii is essentially a quick port of the Xbox version, the unique control system makes it its own game. The controls are new and innovative, but to a large percentage of racing fans they won't seem to fit. There is a...

Need for Speed Carbon


Continuing the urban street theme of Need for Speed Most Wanted, NFS: Carbon is a moderately similar follow-up to last year's cross-console title; yet the story behind NFS: Carbon makes me long for the cinematic masterpiece that is The Fast and the...

Overall:I'm sad to say the story within Need for Speed: Carbon just isn't as pleasurable as last year's NFS: Most Wanted nor did the game adapt well on the Wii. While the sheer amount of content vastly outweighs Most Wanted, finishing the game requires...

Need for Speed Carbon


Does motion control act as a Nitrous boost or a flat tire for this popular series?

Lots of content to tool around with -- race types, square miles, etc.; audio is excellent, especially radio chatter

Can only be considered a major failure, control-wise; worst version of the game

Need for Speed Carbon


When a sequel's not a sequel, the streets have no name, and the sun never shines - thank goodness...

Tons of control options ; Wide selection of sweet rides ; Scads of customization options

Not too much new stuff ; Repetitive wingman chatter ; No multiplayer

Need for Speed: Carbon Review


EA takes to the canyons for inspiration in this year's Need for Speed...

In many ways Need for Speed: Carbon feels like a novelty addition to the series; it's fun in the way that we've come to expect from Need for Speed, but it's long-term appeal is seriously questionable. New concepts such as Crews and Territories meet...

Need for Speed Carbon - Review


Need for Speed Carbon (NFSC) brings the street racing series to the Wii for the first time. Now when you bring a game to the Wii it's hard not to try and take advantage of the game's motion-sensing controllers even when the game is a port from other...

Need For Speed Carbon will make you miss the days of the gamepad.

Need for Speed Carbon


Racing on the Wii is as easy as turning your Wii-Mote sideways.

Alas, in this first generation of Wii games, there is no online game play for any of the games, this includes NFS Carbon. This is the biggest crutch that Nintendo needs to get off as online now a days is vital to the video game industry. This being...

Need for Speed: Carbon


Need for Speed: Carbon is ready to take you to the heart of underground racing. Set in the outskirts of the city, you begin by declaring a class allegiance, picking your crew, and finally, deciding which of the 50 tunable cars you want to make your own. S

Need For Speed: Carbon


This game is urban, very urban. Being from the harsh streets of Sussex we're not accustomed to people who have 'game', are called 'Razor' and wear more 'bling' than a well stocked English gift shop. The arrival of this game was greeted with a great...

If you enjoy the Need for Speed series then go out and get it on the XBOX, 360, PS2 or GameCube. This game does not work on Wii. The gameplay is flawed, the controls are often impossible and the whole game suffers from some major compatibility issues....

Need For Speed Carbon Review for Wii


Need For Speed Carbon for Wii Review - If you've been following the series up to this point, and were a fan of last year's Most Wanted, Carbon should be right up your alley, but the Wii version shouldn't be the version you play.
