What happens in the canyon, stays in the canyon
What starts in the city is settled in the canyons as Need for Speed: Carbon weaves a story line that players won't soon forget in locales that are as detailed as they are deadly. You and your crew must race in an all-out war for the city, risking everything to take over your rivals' neighborhoods one block at a time. Boldly expanding on the key features that have made the Need for Speed franchise a hit for more than a decade, Need for Speed: Carbon turns up the excitement and intensity by introducing all-new canyon racing. As the police turn up the heat, the battle ultimately shifts to Carbon Canyon, where territories and reputations can be lost on every perilous curve. With multiplayer racing and the most detailed Wii graphics and car customization tools ever, Need for Speed: Carbon is the ultimate next generation racing game.

Need for Speed: Carbon on the Nintendo Wii introduces the world to a whole new way to play Need for Speed. Offering the classic Need for Speed controls and immersive gameplay experience, with the addition of the Wii's unique controller scheme takes NFS Carbon gameplay to levels previously not possible. A simple yet intuitive control scheme using the Wii controllers, the player will instantly recognize and feel the physics differences between the extensive list of Muscle, Exotic, and Tuner cars, as they use their crew to win Canyon races, customize their cars using Autosculpt technology, and battle to take control of the streets of Palmont. A streamlined focus on game physics has resulted in a truly authentic racing experience, as each of the game's three distinct car classes have been designed to maximize differentiation and enhance performance.

Over 50 rides to drive and customize
Carbon offers more than 50 custom rides in three distinct classes: Tuner, Exotic, and Muscle -- each with unique attributes. Muscle are best on straightaways, of which there are precious few in Palmont. Need for Speed: Carbon gives you the power to design and tweak your car in every way - including over 300 different parts - using the ground-breaking new Autosculpt technology. As with other racing games you hold either end of the Wii Controller and tilt it to steer your car. If you'd rather not take the motion-control plunge EA thoughtfully provides five different steering configurations, including using the Nunchuk's analog stick. Our advice is to forget about old school -- the Wii Remote is the way to go. How did we ever enjoy racing games before it was invented?

Birds of a fuel-injected feather
New to Need for Speed in this generation are the three kinds of wingmen (and yes, that's what the game calls them). Scouts search for shortcuts. Blockers create distractions and slow rivals. Drafters give you a second of speed boost for every second you can stay behind them. All three also give you moral support via wireless communications. Scouts are most useful the first few times you run a course. Drafters are of limited use on Palmont's twisting thoroughfares. Practically indespensible are Blockers, who are always willing to lay their precious paint jobs on the line so you can cross the finish line first. Now that's true friendship.

In total, Need for Speed: Carbon takes racing on the Wii to the next generation, and never looks back. With extensive customization, multiplayer options, revolutionary control, and an intriguing story, owners of the Wii may not be able to put this title down for a long, long time.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Racing Title for the Wii June 20, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Yes it will take you a while to get used to the controls, but once you do, it is a very fun game. There are many racing modes and the story is not half bad (for a racing game); it gives you an incentive to come back and play time after time. Tuning the car is easy and fun to do. There is a lot more depth here as compared to "Excite Truck", which is fun in its own, but not deep at all. Although all of the racing takes place during night time, the graphics is one of the best on the Wii. I recommend at least a rental for all racing fans out there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance..the fun ramps up as you play July 8, 2007
By P. Webb
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Initially I was not really feeling this game at all, the graphics are nice for the Wii and the Wii specific control seems too simple at first, but after some time put in I ilke this NFS best of all. Terrific and fun car controls are all you need to put this into the realm of an adrenaline rush classic like F-Zero GX. The controls also probably make this the most accesible NFS title yet once you practice them for a small amount and upgrade your cars HANDLING ability, the interface using the Nunchuck is a little convuluted and confusing, as are the menus but then it wouldn't be an EA game without them would it. Overall worth it if you wanna go FAST on your Wii- think excite truck with more realism and SPEED

4.0 out of 5 stars Wii Ride December 13, 2006
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii| Edition:Standard|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The Nintendo Wii has definitely been one of the hottest toys this holiday season. Although the game system has been hot, many of the titles for the system, have also been issued for Nintendo's other console, the Gamecube. That has been the case with Legend Of Zelda: Twiglight Princess, Happy Feet, and recently, Need For Speed as well. Since its made its debut years ago, Need For Speed has definitely been recognized as one of the most popular racing franchises ever. The games have all done mostly well for the PS2, Xbox 360, and the home computers as well. Now that it has made its debut on the Wii, can it deliver as well?

Need For Speed Carbon for the Nintendo Wii, challenges drivers to face off in over 70 different races ranging from sprints, circuits, and the new canyon duels, where you go head to head against the vulgar street racer Darius, and his crew of speed demons. In the game, you and your crew have to battle your way to the top, as well as the thrills of the cahse against the police. The game also features automobiles ranging from classic muscle cars like the Dodge Charger, ans classic speed racers like the Chevrolet Corvette, the infamous Dodge Viper, and the Mclaren racers too. The game also features a challenge mode, where you are given the chance to prove you are more than just a winner in career mode. The graphics really handle well for the Wii and give out a better sense of gameplay. Although the graphics and the sound handle well, there are a few disadvantages to the game. The main disadvantage is the control. It takes awhile to get used to, considering the motion movement in the Wii controller, as you use it as if it is a steering wheel. The other disadvantage is the pursuits against the police in the career mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent game. April 2, 2007
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Thats the bottom line, Need for Speed carbon is an extremely intense, challenging, and immersing game for the wii. At first, the controls seem very sloppy and difficult to maneuver but after just a race or two you really master it to the point where you can drive with excellent precision and ease (Its important to skip the muscle car class and focus on cars with higher handling points).

I couldn't imagine playing this game on anything other than the wii console simply because using the wiimote as your steering wheel really gets you into the game. The challenge to the races are very balanced although the boss races require you to drive with near perfection although you always can win after a few tries.

Overal a terrific, fun, and challenging game that I recomend for every wii owner. Its just a well done game that you will really get into and enjoy.

By bandit
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Edition:Standard
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game throughout had its very easy parts (most of the races when you first start are pretty easy, to get you into the game) and very difficult parts (such as beating a lamborghini murcielago through a canyon run with a dodge charger). Whenever I sat down to play this game, I would always find myself in front of the TV for hours at a time - it was great fun. A couple of annoyances I experienced were how fast and agile the police were; they always are a little bit faster than any car you have. I wished this was a bit more realistic. However, this is not to say that police pursuits and ramming through roadblocks aren't part of the game's fun.
If you are an explosive and anger-prone individual, this game will surely expose your ferocity a few times; I know it did with me. (Such as when you hit a stop sign, it remains stuck in front of your car, and you can only go 50 mph right when are about to win a tough race. Also when you completely flob the last turn before you are about to win a tough race and you have done everything else perfectly before that moment).
I think it's kind of rediculous that they didn't implement a multiplayer format (it says it's 1-player only on the back of the cover), because I believe other platform versions of the game have multiplayer or at least xbox has online xbox live play.
The reward cards (Accessories for your car or cars themselves that you win for performing certain feats during gameplay) are supposed to have challenging feats. And yes, some of them are extreme challenges, but some of the them are just kind of stupid and they appear to not have much thought in them (such as "fill your garage with nothing but tuner cars, fill your garage with nothing but exotic cars").
I highly recommend using a nunchuck with this game.
