The battle for the city is won in the canyon as Need for Speed: Carbon immerses you in the world's most dangerous and adrenaline-filled form of street racing.

For the first time in a Need for Speed game, build a crew and race in an all-out war for your city against rival crews and opposing car classes. You'll risk everything to take over rival neighborhoods one street at a time.

Each crew member has unique skills that you trigger during races to give you the winning edge over opponents. Call on a Blocker to create a distraction and slow down other racers or a Scout to lead you to shortcuts on the track.

As the police turn up the heat and force the races to the outskirts of the city, the battle ultimately shifts to Carbon Canyon, where territories and reputations can be lost on every perilous curve.

Use your creativity to design your crew's cars with the revolutionary new Autoscuplt car customization tool that gives you the power to turn every vehicle into the car you've always wanted.

Represent your car class, your crew, and your streets in Need for Speed Carbon, the next revolution in racing games.

Survive the Canyon: Leave the streets to battle rival bosses in the canyons outside the urban center. All-new Canyon Duel and Drift race modes are the ultimate test of skill and nerve, where one wrong turn could cost you more than the race.

The City Is Yours for the Taking: Race for control of the city block-by-block by taking down rival crews on their turf, then defeat their crew leaders in life-or-death races in Carbon Canyon.

    Customize Your Dream Car: The revolutionary new Autosculpt car customization tool gives you the power to design and morph your car in every way imaginable.

      Represent a Class: Affiliate with the Tuner, American Muscle, or Exotic car classes and prove once and for all who makes the best set of wheels. A new physics model makes each car handle and drive differently.

        Build Your Crew: Strategically choose your crew members and use their skills on the road and in your garage to help you win races and customize your cars. Designate any member of your crew as a wingman and trigger his special skill to knock out your rivals.

        As somebody who had until recently, let the NFS hype pass them by, I decided that I would finally try the series out with the launch release for the Wii.

        Upon starting the game, the very first thing that I noticed were the controls. First impressions were poor. The controls were unbelievably akward, but as time passed, I did find that I did get used to the controls. Whilst they aren't perfect, they certainly aren't bad, and definetley not as bad as many reviews have made them out to be.

        As for the racing, well at first, it was good fun. For somebody who's main racing game experience has been from games such as Mario Kart and F-Zero, racing around the city was a novelty, but this novelty soon wore off. What struck me was how quickly the courses became repetitive and uninspired. Most have the same feel to them, and this soon becomes tiresome. What was more worrying, was that in a game called Need For Speed, the racing seemed anything but fast. In fact, it feels rather pedestrian. Add to this a terrible story, and you have a rather dissapointing game here.

        With all the hype surrounding this series, I have completley failed to see what all the fuss is about. It comes across all arrogant, but for no reason, it's not fast, it's not exciting, and the fun is short lived. If you want a good racer, get Excite Trucks instead.

         Not brilliant

        Need for speed games normally are very good with lots of action and hours of gameplay, I thought this game got very boring after playing it for a while.
        Its not great but if you could crash cars off the road like burnout, the game would be a lot more exiting.

         Excellent racing game

        I never got into racing games. But upon picking this up, I really enjoy them. I am nearly at the end of the game, and I would like to go through this game again after completing. It has great multiplayer. Controls are excellent - I use sideways remote, then pop into a steering shell. Love the graphics too. And there are lots of unlocks to achieve. Class.

         Hottest Game Of All Need For Speed Games A1

        | | See all curiousgeorge's reviews (1)

        I have to say this game is slightly better than most wanted, it has a touch of added class to the game, the feel with wheel if standing or sitting at least 2 metres away works perfectly, if 2 close the car simply does not perform and is hard to handle, probably the problem of sum reviews. Lots of cool cars aswell !!!

         Great better than new pro street

        Well me i don't really like pro street to be honest both are good games but i prefer the gameplay in carbon to prostreet. Carbon has canyon showdown which i much enjoyed. Modding your car is brilliant in this game and simple the cars to chose are also nice. This game doesn't take long to complete infact about a week. BUt this game is fantastic with the steering wheel. They just flow together nicely and it feels realistic. This game doesn't have many flaws to it so very good. Boss races are very fun. Money is a bit to easy to come around though so you can buy so many cars with doing hardly any races. The steering wheel really makes this game worth it so if you buy this buy the wheel trust me. This game let's you explore the streets and feel like a street racer. This game is ahead of the game and should be new and replaced with pro street. Good game
