This game is ok but the graphics are bad, the racing can get boring and all you do is go round the same places every time. I would recommend it to people 10 and under.

It's a brilliant game. There are lot sof levels so you don't finish it really quick. It's very well set out and a definite buy.

  Quality for the PSP

| | See all DaveCUFC's reviews (28)

In my opinion, this is one of the best car racing games around for PSP. It is completely different to the likes of Ridge Racer but manages to pull it off.

Need For Speed: Carbon is based around your crew and the qualities they have can be very helpful. Some reviews say the game doesn't have a long enough playing life but even after you defeat and win back all of the areas, there are still cars to be unlocked and upgraded at the garage.

Recommended buy especially as it's only £14.99!

  Not The Best For NFS

| | See all sakte2hell's reviews (2)

I am used to the NFS:Carbon on the PS2 console and thinking this was going to be the same was a big mistake its a good game with decent graphics but if you want a good racing game with drifting! Juiced2:HIN is a better buy (even though it costs loads more !)

  Good But Repetetive, Repetetive, Repetetive

| | See all MaTrIx86's reviews (9)

At First this game delivers everything it promises nice cars, races a decent storyline the ability to "pimp" your car out. It really is 5 star class for the first 3 - 6 hours then after that everything just becomes repetetive all the driving missions are basically the same and just become are chore rather than enjoyable.

Good at first but loses its appeal fast. Its a dust collector in my cupboard now, i wouldnt recommend buying this.

great game, flawless graphics that match the ps2 graphics. lengthy story. meets the need for speed. would reccomend it.

  Good but needs better cars

| | See all lilbrunty's reviews (3)

I think that this game is great and well worth the money but the cars arent tradiotional need for speed cars they are more like sports cars and you cant really make them look good. also the own the city mode is quite short and u will find yourself completing it quite quickly.

  a good racing game

Need for speed carbon is a good game but all good games
could be vastly improved.Carbon is a brilliant game for all car game fanatics, although if you dont like racing games you might not enjoy it .This game could be improved in that there wasnt so much to do after you have completed all the races,because you have to complete the races then you have to collect all the crates then buy all the cars and then do all the bonus missions.but i still recomend it to racing fanatics.

  No Canyon Duels for PSP or DS :(

| | See all Bashimitsu's reviews (61)

I've always enjoyed playing Need for Speed games because as rule whilst they're rarely brilliant, they're always reliably decent enough. Sure the cut scenes and plot are as offensively 'Street' as has become the norm for the series but if you can forgive it that then you'll find a fairly competent racer to have some fun with on your PSP.
One word of warning, though, if you're familiar with this games big brother on the home consoles and have enjoyed the Canyon Duels then you'll be disappointed as they are omitted from both this and the DS version (I guess that's why they added 'Own the City' to the title).
Shame really because the tension and excitement present in those races are really what made Carbon a better than average game.
