Need for Speed Carbon Hrmmm

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Sooo after all the talk I thought I would just see what all the fuss is about. Firstly, let me say having it so they it auto drifts is kinda lame... woulda been cool to have some skill involved but I guess that would ward off all of the 8 year olds who play. The story line also seems to be geared toward the 8-12 year old range as it... kinda sucks. Lastly, the game got killed by the auto-drift for me, at least have an option where you can make a manual drift so the kiddies can have their fun and I can have a challenge. The gameplay took me all of 1 day to complete. Not even 1 day though, maybe around half a day is more like it. Seems like it was rushed a little bit...


I give it a 2/10 because the game runs well

Damn, this is bad news to me... I was hoping it would be a really good game.... I fell in love with the NFS series the day i picked up the controller on a playstation for NFS:2... I own every other NFS since...

I didnt think it was THAT bad at all. Its a fun, good looking car game.

As a semi-perfessional driver I find it annoying when people rave about how realistic a car game is (like GT4) and how fake a car game is (NFS).

They are all just reality escaping games. If you want a true driving experiance. Build your own car and start racing.

/rant.

Cliffs: I thought it was heaps of fun. Seemed to remind me of the fun I had playing Midnight Club 2 back in the day.

I understand where your coming from Chopes, i was really looking forward to the game but it let me down

Heres a list of what "drove" me mad:

1. Constant crashing of the game while browsing the menu (patch soon to sort this).
2. The sound is really bad, it's like the audio is being rendered through software not hardware so all the way through the game i had crackling and popping in my ears.
3. That really annoying video thing that comes up in the corner of the screen playing a laugh or some jibberish of the person your racing when you hit something/them, at first it was like "huh, different" but at the end it was more like "AAGGHH FFS! ****!!1!".
4. The choice of cars at the start are ok but you don't unlock anything cool until near the end when you still have 1 car and $500,000 in the bank, then once you beat the boss at the end you get 5 really good cars, what's the point having them then?!
5. Not enough drifting.
6. When doing canyon run's, the camera sometimes moves a little to the left or right of the car while going round corners, this is really stupid as it feels like the car has not finished going round the corner and makes you hit the side or crash.
7. Why is it when i've been leading in a race for the first and 95% of the second lap a car zooms past me doing 300mph to take the win even though it was 2 seconds behind me?

Thats the end of my rant, sorry Chopes for nicking your thread but this game aint worth the effort of a new one

OH man I HATED THAT!! it would aggravate me so bad......

as far as the game goes..I enjoyed it...the story line was better than past NFS games, even though it was very little...but having some type of story line makes a game more fun to me...After you get about 50% into the game..the story basically disappears...which makes the game begin to get kind of repetitive and boring....I completed the game in 1 day.....and a lot of that was on the very last race

Oh, and another problem I had....if i ever tried to change any 'custom' video settings, my game would crash..so I was left with that annoying blur motion while driving, and I hate that.

Ditto in all aspects. I hated this game. Luckily it only lasted a day. It was a bit dissappointing to see the genre go down so much. I still play NFSU2 and NFSMW almost daily because they're great games.

I have to say I agree with ya Chopes, and the other guys too. This game really let me down. It looks good and runs good, but it stops there. No straight line drag racing (as of yet for me anyways), the drifting really blows. Crashing through a gaurd rail and going over the cliff is really lame. I also hate the little video where they laugh at you and make stupid faces. It does seem to have a rushed feel to it. LIke they made the game in half the time it took to make Most Wanted. And btw Most Wanted was waaaaaayyy better than this Carbon crap. lol. I feel I wasted 39.99.
