I've been a fan of need for speed titles for a long time, in fact I think I have purchased every one of them with the exception of porsche unleashed. I found need for speed carbon to be a great game, especially because of the variety of awesome cars and the adittion of MUSCLE CARS. Under this category you find classics such as the Shelby Mustang GT500 and some new cars like the Dodge Challenger Concept. NFS Carbon looks like a NFS underground 3 with pursuits. Although cops don't play a mayor role, it's still fun to mess around with them once in a while(If you don't look for cops you'll run into them like about 6 or 7 times in the whole career mode, which I think sucks).

One thing I found disappointing was the extremely short career mode. If you are familiar with previous NFS games, you should get around career mode in about 8 hours. I started playing a Saturday morning and on Sunday afternoon I had already completed 100% career. Once career mode is completed, the only thing left to do is complete challenges to unlock aditional cars and parts for your cars. Challenges include completing races under a limit of time or engaging pursuits that last at least the target time provided.

About the races, they're pretty much like Most wanted or Need for Speed Underground, but without traffic and there are no drag races(yes, very dissapointing!). A new feature has been added: Crew members. Although I admit it was a nice idea, the game would probably have been better without them. Many players may find crew members frustrating since they sometimes hit the brakes in front of you and make you crash. Crew members can also win races for you. There are 3 types of crew members: scout, drafter and blocker(you may only choose one of them in a race).

There is so much going on with Microsoft these days. Although so much more emphasis right now is on the Xbox 360, that doesn't mean there are still original Xbox fanatics who are waiting to see what develops for the original system. Racing games have had that understanding as well. With EA's success of the Need For Speed franchise, they've continued to keep the ball rolling for the next great acheivement in being the fastest and the most furious. The previous chapter, Most Wanted really thrived for all gamers, and it delivered so much potent excitement from the thrills of the blacklist 15, to battling yourr way against the police. Now, a new chapter has risen, but can it deliver?

Need For Speed Carbon for the Xbox, is a wild and outrageous race game, where you and your crew have to manuver your way to the top against underground racers, and the opportunity to defeat Darius and his crew of vulgar street racers. You also have a crew of scouts which help you find shortcuts, blockers who are heavy hitters that slam into ooponents, and drafters which help you boost your speed in fast and tough races. The game also features exciting tracks from circuits, the new canyon duels, a game of street chicken, as well as the return of drift races from the Underground 2 era. You also have numerous cars to deal to unlock in the career mode and challenge mode from classic muscle cars like the Dodge Charger concept, tuners like the Mazda RX-7 and Toyota Supra, and Mclarens, and exoticas like the fierce Porsche Carerra. The graphics for the game really deliver as well as mostly the gameplay from each thrilling track throughout the city.

Nevertheless, like many racing games there are a few disadvantages. One of the main problems with Need For Speed Carbon is the chase against the cops.

Gameplay: 8.4

Every car handles differently, every course is linked together in one massive world, and the controls will take you back to the days of arcade racers like Daytona USA. (Actual arcade racers - the ones with $5,000 cabinets all arcade owners dreaded purchasing.) The customization features are a little shallow, and the game is a little easy. Okay, a lot easy. But you'll love the ride while it lasts, and you're going to want to play through this racer more than once.

Graphics: 8

The cars look amazing. Every part of them is packed with realistic detail. Even the interiors are noticeably accurate. The cars reflect the city lights quite beautifully, and will do so differently depending on the type of finish that's been applied (chrome, matte, etc.).

Carbon's environments aren't nearly as memorable. The backgrounds aren't that far beyond what was possible with the old Xbox. Also, the cars, as gorgeous as they are, cannot be damaged. They can crash repeatedly, and abolish generic police vehicles. But your vehicles - which are from licensed manufacturers - are as protected as those in Gran Turismo, save for a few scratches every now and then (that magically disappear after every race).

I know that this is what most, not all, automakers want. But if some manufacturers are on board and others are not, maybe it's the supportive companies you should be focusing on - to give the gamer the most intense experience possible.

Sound: 7.9

Hurray for the return of full-motion video! First you get to see the actors, who look toward the camera when talking to the player's character as if you were actually in the story. The actors also appear in polygon form, with extreme realism to boot.
