Need For Speed: Carbon is fantastic.

The other reviewers complained of PS2-type graphics.. I'd imagine it's because they don't have an HDTV.

The gameplay is just fun.
And you get sucked in. Hooked. Completely.
You create your own crew ('gang') and take over territory by winning races. You earn money, unlock cars, and unlock upgrades.

I currently took over 2/4 territories, and have a sweet driftin' RX-7.

So many options to select when upgrading your car, like if you want grip or drift, etc.

Also, the game has mini-games, 'challenges'. They are so fun, and they unlock more things for you. Getting away from the cops is great, and doesn't get old! :)

A must rent, and worth the buy as well. Have fun with this game!

This game is one of the best games in the series, however it isn't perfect, as no game in my opinion is. However here are the facts of the game. When you first play it, you have a option to take 3 routes. One route is the tuners in which case you choose the mazda rx8. The second route is the muscle cars, in which case you receive the Camaro SS. The Third Route is the exotics, in which case you choose the 2006 Alfa Brera. Now on to the game. The story line is GREAT, and the racing is VERY realistic, and the cop chases remind me of what it was like when I use to street race, and how they acted etc. The only flaws in this game that I can really tell are the fact of you really can't choose which company your parts come from, and there is no underglow in this game what so ever. That being said overall this is a great game, despite its minor mishaps.

Unlike Pro Street, this game is entertaining.
