Need for Speed Carbon Demo for PC - Page 4

post #31 of 76
Already got a review from a pal...here it is

Hi Y'all,

I surely didn't expect this and maybe it's just me, but this is probably the worst racing game I tried for ages ...

analog steering is completely useless
force feedback is not present
the car feels like skating on ice
the visuals look ugly to me

I cannot even be bothered to try it again after only half an hour of frustration.

What a disapointment ...

Man, am I frustrated !

Is this really the game they were hyping all these months ? ? ?

Can't believe it. What a waste.

Well.. I installed the game, then afterwards I wanted to run it... it asks for a cd? what the hell? Anyway I launch the installer again and this time it goes well. Time to launch the game. It's stuck in the loading screen, not even getting to the menu, giving crazy artifacting while loading. Reversed my card back to stock settings, even turned off the extra pipelines and vertex shaders. Launch the game again, still crazy artifacting while loading, but now I finally get into the menu. I turn the game up to 1024 x 768 with high detail and launch a race. Again the crazy artifacting while loading, none during the race. The controls really have gotten worse, and the graphics looks less nice then Most Wanted. While attempting to launch my second race my computer completely freezes and I'm getting the message "nv4dsp.dll failed" something in that direction. Next thing I know is that my monitor turns off by itself and I have to reboot my pc.

Well.. so far for NFS Carbon...

Hi guys
I just installed the game and I find it very boring.The graphics are the same or even worst than Most Wanted.I didnt liked it.I hope the full version is way much better.
I can play it Maxed and on Most wanted I can barely play it at Medium with 4x.
