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

Need for Speed Carbon: The Next Revolution in Racing Games

By Ivy Paloma

On Wednesday, May 14, 2014

Need for Speed Carbon is almost the same with Need for Speed: Most Wanted when it comes to game play. The visual graphics are nearly identical, too. The only difference between this two Need for Speed series are the races. NFS: Carbon takes place during the night, while NFS: Most Wanted sets the races during daytime.

The story of NFS: Most Wanted is more on extreme police chases and head to head racing. Need for Speed Carbon on the other hand, is all about conquering territories. The big map in this game is divided into four different areas and in each area, there are several zones to control. You need to have two wins in a zone match in order to acquire each region by your group and if you conquered enough regions the whole territory is all yours.

The online set-up of NFS: Carbon is well executed. The numbers of car models in the PC version is pretty huge and nothing for you to ask for more.

Pros

  • You can customize your cars with no limitation
  • It includes cool list of soundtracks

Cons

  • Some zone matches are frustrating

Stunning and Powerful Racing Video Game with Full of Action

By Isay Almenanza

On Monday, April 14, 2014

Need for Speed Carbon is one of my favorite racing video game. It is a stunning game with full of action, developed by Electronic Arts. What I loved about in this game is that, it is full of actions and easy to play. NFS was a better looking game. The cars and the environment of the game just blew me away. The game had the best lighting effects and it gives me adrenaline in my arms every time I play it.

It is an arcade-style racing video game that’s why many kids also love this game. The best part of the game is that each level is divided into zones and in every zone you will find a different car racing event.

And if I win in at least two events in a level, it will put me under control. If I have taken over all the other zones, I can be the head of the crew in a given territory.

Playing this game is exciting. Every level makes my heart beat faster. It is a fun and powerful game. In every zone, you will face different crew bosses and some of the events will test your patience. That’s the highlight of this racing video game.

Pros

  • It has a more solid FMV sequences
  • This software has a lot of customization options

Cons

  • Missing much of the elements that made the last few games fun
  • The game has a frustrating police chase

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.
