Need for Speed takes on a new level with Need for Speed: Carbon

By Beatrice Tan

On Monday, September 1, 2014

Having played Need for Speed: Underground for several years, I never thought that this awesome racing game, with its adrenaline pumping race cars, speed-inducing maps, addictive and extremely engaging gameplay is already the best it can ever be. But I was wrong. Dead wrong. Because Need for Speed: Carbon was released into the wild.

This newest version of the Need for Speed franchise now hosts a range of game features and improvements that will drive you to the edge of your seat. The story line features a more solid and realistic background. Having lost everything, my character, had to start racing from scratch. The setting is in Carbon Canyon, but the story starts in the city where me and my crew had to take on other racers and compete in dangerous, underground racing against other crews. One of the newest feature additions is the introduction of road crews, where you can select from three types of ‘buddy’ racers – drifters, scouts and blockers. These racers can help you by providing ‘slingshot’ opportunities, finding shortcuts in the map and creating blockades. Personally, I found them to be more of an interference than an advantage. They kept moving in my field of view, talking to me and basically interfering with my racing. So I chose not to have them around most of the time.

The racing however, is pure adrenaline. Through the game’s AutSculpt option, I could customize my car’s modifications through an almost infinite range of combinations. Spoilers, side skirts, hoods and bumpers can be customized through sliders. The end-result? A racing machine worth showing off online.

All in all, Need for Speed: Carbon is truly an amazing upgraded version of this highly popular franchise. So if you’re looking for a racing game that will re-ignite your need for speed, then this software is perfect for you.

Pros

  • Broad range of cars available for unlocking
  • Advanced customization options available through AutoSculpt
  • A more solid and realistic storyline
  • Selection of car classes and the addition of muscle cars

Cons

  • Not so great boss races
  • The crews are more of a disadvantage than an advantage

Experience the fast and furious type of driving through this game

I am a big fan of Need for Speed: Carbon. It is a strategic racing game that is worth playing. The storyline and settings are new, but it still has a great resemblance from the previous NFS game. I spend most of my time playing the Career Mode and this is the best one for me. Although, some players would say that this edition is much less challenging than its predecessors, I strongly disagree. The game has a new concept in which players can have a computer controlled character called the wingman. The wingman's purpose is to mess and distract the rival gangs by bumping and blocking them. The great number of customization options and the wide array of race tracks will blow your mind. The graphics are cool although the game takes place only at night. I am totally pleased with the neon colored headlights! From breaking laws, reckless driving and illegal street racing, this game is suitable for adults.

Pros

  • Wide selection of customization options
  • Exciting race tracks to choose from

Cons

  • The game has no online version

Need For Speed Carbon: Be carefull in the canyon races!

By Iuhasz Raymond

On Tuesday, January 26, 2016

I remember playing this game on my ps2 with my friends and one of our best experience with this game are the canyons, that look really scary sometimes, but funny. There are a lot of Need for speed better than this one but i enjoyed it a lot and if you want to play some kind of “antique” NFS you can choose this one you won't get disappointed.

Carbon is a game released in 2006 by Electronic Arts where they focused on the drift mode and a new race mode where the canyons are the stars. In canyon races you can fall downhill and be forced to restart the race. There are a lot of cars to buy and customize but they are quite limited like all the race games of the epoch. If you want to play carbon i recommend you as well to play Need for Speed Most Wanted is one of the most famous game of the NFS series.

Pros

  • New and unique race mode: Canyon.
  • Preatty good car sounds .

Cons

  • It is a game from 2006

Review

Need for Speed Carbon is a racing game, developed by Electronic Arts, with all-out car action. The aim is to beat other racers in order to conquer their neighborhoods. This title immerses the player into the illegal world of street racing, driving for your freedom against police and other enemies. New cars and improved gameplay will draw you in to discovering this underground world.

This new version incorporates some interesting new elements and keeps some of the most popular characteristics from the previous title, NFS Most Wanted. The open-world concept remains, expanding into areas such as San Juan, and it includes more variety than Palmont City. The diversity is great not only because of new cars but also because of its stages. Newly designed, perilous speedways are where your skills will be tested in adrenaline-filled races, forcing you to risk your vehicle in different settings, such as canyons or city routes. It also has a multiplayer mode, a true stand-out thanks to online connectivity.

The visual aspect of Need for Speed Carbon is good, and it has several interesting screen elements. The blur effect, used during the nitro boost, increases the feeling of speed for racers in a very arcade-game fashion. The light effects on the cars are not very realistic, as they are too shiny during night races. Despite this detail, the graphics are rather good and have been updated to take advantage of high performance GPUs.

Car variety and gameplay

You can also play the online multiplayer version with your customized car. The variety of cars in this title enhances the game. Amongst the main cars are the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution IX model, the Lamborghini Gallardo, the Chevrolet Camaro and the Nissan Skyline. Depending on which one you select, your racing style will be different. There are more higher-quality customizing options available than ever before thanks to the integrated Autosculpt technology.

Gameplay is quite similar to the previous version, but with enhanced physics. The scenery elements of the city can be destroyed if you run over them. Drifting in curves can give you an advantage against your rivals, so you will need to polish your driving style in order to beat the different crews in this adventure. Ultimately, obtaining more resources will give you access to more car models, such as muscles, tuners or sports cars. There are more models to download, thanks to the official content developed by EA.
