4.0 out of 5 stars Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City........ May 9, 2007
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Edition:Greatest Hits
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Need for Speed Carbon: Own the City, like NFS Most Wanted 5-1-0 before it, is a totally different game than its' console counterparts. While it is the first portable NFS game to feature a sprawling city to roam around in when you feel like it(something NFS fans, including me, have been griping about since the first NFS game for the PSP) and the gist of the game is still the same, it takes place in a different city and the story is different(the way it's told is also different--instead of FMV in CGI environments, you have comic-book style art story sequences with voice work). In this game, you're in Coast City. During a street race that you and your brother, Mick, were competing in, something happens. The accident leaves you laid up in the hospital with some nasty amnesia and your brother dead. You find out what happend was no accident and you set out on the streets to find out who is responsible. Let me tell you, the city in this portable version is just as big as the one in the console version and, in some respects, alot better a city to race in. I mean, the city just drips with personality. Your main objective in the game is to take on rival crews around the city with your own crew. If you win a certain number of events, you'll get to race the crew boss. If you beat the crew boss, you'll take control of that district plus unlock new cars and upgrades for purchase.

The only thing I seen wrong with the game is that, sometimes, the frame rate gets somewhat choppy when you're racing at higher speeds(course, that's understandable with as much detail as this game possesses).

Overall, Need for Speed Carbon:Own the City is a solid game that does things somewhat better than the console games and is different enough from those games to warrant a purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Racing Action January 11, 2007
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Edition:Greatest Hits
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
A great game for the PSP - lots of fun and reasonably challenging. The graphics are impressive as is the sound quality. The selection of cars is OK (a few more top end vehicles would be nice). The cars are easy to control and respond realistically. The increased difficulty as the game progresses make it quite challenging. Need for Speed Carbon is a cool game!

5.0 out of 5 stars NFS Carbon PSP July 24, 2010
By Dee
Platform for Display:Sony PSP| Edition:Greatest Hits|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Need For Speed Carbon for the PSP has a different story line and different cars than the PS3 version. Some nice features of the PSP version as compared to the PS3 version are:
- Doesn't force you into Muscle, Exotic, or Tuner classes.
- Muscle cars don't have exaggerated rough handling.
- You can swap between D-pad and analog stick for steering, without having to use controller options.
- Police and enemy vehicles have health bars.
- Can use 2 of 5 wingmen instead of 1 of 3 during races.
- Wingmen can be upgraded through use (three levels)
I've had a lot of fun with it. The gameplay, tracks, controls, sound, music, and graphics are great.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not So Fast Or Furious January 26, 2007
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Edition:Greatest Hits
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
There are so many racing games that have really thrived on the speed, and the grace that drives so many video game owners wild. That has been said numerous times on handhelds. The speed of Mario Kart DS on the Nintendo DS was one of the most enjoyable, and exciting racers that showed to be fun and entertaining. That hasn't been said very well with Need For Speed on the handhelds. Although it shined brightly on the Playstation 2, it hasn't shown its success very well on the PSP. The last edition Need For Speed Most Wanted 5-1-0 was an absolute dissapointment for gamers who wanted a whole lot more than what they had bargained for. Now with another speed out for the PSP, will it finally show its backbone?

Need For Speed Carbon: Own The City tries to actually bring out again what had made the racing franchise its best speed yet. This game, you can choose from 25 vehicles ranging from exoticas like the Lambourghini Miercialgo, and muscle cars like the Dodge Charger. the gameplay is simple, as you race your way throughout the city, trying to be the best of the best, as you and your crew race through several races here, mostly circuits, rather than more appealing races like its PS2 and PS3 counterparts. The graphics are fairly drawn, but the gameplay in itself is still not as exciting as before. another disadvantage, is that you absolutely don't have as much of the thrill of the chase against the police in this version, as you had with Need For Speed Most Wanted did, which also leaves some fans of the series in the dust.

With all the game tries bringing out, Need For Speed Carbon: Own The City isn't really a must buy for the Sony PSP.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best in the series so far!!! July 7, 2009
Platform for Display:Sony PSP|Edition:Greatest Hits
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the only Need For Speed game for my PSP, and it sure rocks!! Here is a list of my NFS games from earliest to latest: NFS 3: Hot Pursuit (PC), NFS Porsche Unleashed (PC, GBA), NFS Hot Pursuit 2 (PC), NFS Underground (PC, GBA), NFS Underground 2 (GBA), NFS Most Wanted (GBA), this product (NFS Carbon OTC (PSP), NFS Prostreet (DS), and NFS Undercover (DS). This has got to be one of, if not my favorite.
My Ratings:
Detail: 12/10, Graphics: 13/10, Fun: 9.5/10, Overall: 11.4/10.
This game is awesome for anyone who has a PSP with ver. 2.71 or later (won't play if you have ver. 2.70 or earlier). Please buy it! You'll love it!!!

This was a good game. The graphics could be a little better. The cars kinda acted like hot wheels or go carts at some points.

I have a PSP 2000 and my brother in law can't put it down when playing this game. This is one of the reasons why the PSP makes sense to alot of gamers.
