Game Description

Conquering the city is just the beginning in this street racer that challenges you to survive not just the streets, but the perilous curves of a treacherous canyon! First, take down rival crews as you race for control of the city streets. When the police get close, the showdown moves to Carbon Canyon, where you'll put your turf and reputation on the line against rival crew leaders in life-or-death races. Choose your car class: Exotic, Tuner, or American Muscle. A new physics engine creates a distinct ride for each. Use the Autosculpt car customizer to custom tune your ride, then tilt the Sixaxis Controller to help steer you through the curves.
