We have just posted our Need For Speed Carbon review. Find out what Clay Shaver had to say about it.
"The sign of an effective series or franchise, in the gaming industry is the ability to evolve. To continue to do what you do well, while adding new elements, eliminating those that don’t work, and always polishing what remains. The Need For Speed series from EA has become famous for doing that. They know what they do well – provide a high-quality, high-speed, arcade -tyle racing game, but they’re also not afraid to grow. During the Underground release, they got into the world of high-end tuners – a new step for the series. Then last year, with Need For Speed Most Wanted, they introduced a new dramatic element into the game. Using cinematic style and presentation to create a solid story mode that few other racers had attempted, Most Wanted was another step for a series that has been around for over a decade.
The latest release in the series comes racing onto a console near you in the form of Need For Speed Carbon. Borrowing from the best of the last few years of the series, Carbon gets back to the dark, city backdrop of fast cars and dangerous curves and presents it with a slick story and top-notch arcade style."
