Need For Speed Carbon: Collectors Edition

Post by xXx Duffy xXx » Thu Nov 09, 2006 12:37 pm

:shock: Let me start out my saying....this game is SIIIIIICK.

Downloaded a copy to see if I would like it. Sure enough...LOVED IT. Loved it so much, that I ditched the pirated copy, and picked me up a legit one :P

To be honest...I dont normally do that. This game just floored me.

Storyline was weak. But the gameplay was worth it. Drifting is back baby :)

Anyhoo...I sat down for a good solid 6-7 hours strraight, and beat the game. Didnt even get up to eat or take a leak :P

If you havent played it... I advise you to go out and get it :)

I hate NFS Carbon :x It's aways about the cars fashion :roll: It isn't a real simulator anymore :cry: NFS 4 and 6 was the best from the series :P . But sometimes everyone need to put a spoiler and to the easy drifting :mrgreen:

It's just canned off NFS2 and nothing notable enough for me to purchase or even download.

I'm really just psyched about the new project gotham whenever it comes out.

I still have yet to play forza 2 for 360, although I hear it's amazing.

Man, I was going to go buy a copy of this game during Spring Break. Now that I've read your comments, I'll skip this game. Which NFS game would you recommend me guys?

I haven't played Carbon, but I had a blast playing Most Wanted. I need to load that up on the new machine and give it another run. I was at the last guy on my old machine when my hard drive flaked out. grrr!

It isn't a real simulator anymore
It was never a simulator. The closest it got to a simulator was NFS5. Which was a balance of simulation and arcade. It even had the tire, and wind noise at high speeds. However, they got rid of the ability to drive a police car, and if you don't like Porsche there is no point. So, they improved on some things, but completely ignored others.

I honestly wouldn't advise on getting any NFS game. Unless you want to play a game where you drive a neon green Honda Civic that handles like a cardboard box. You can download NFS1. If you don't mind the old graphics it's fun.

Yeah I haven't even played this game to know how bad it is. They've just gotten carried away, too much into the flashy rides than into the actual gameplay and likeability.
