Ok, so this need for speed game was good. But it still lacks what the original NFS's had. The game wasn't all that long, wasn't all that hard. And what is Need for Speed, when it doesn't even have the fastest production car in the world? The McLaren F1. Do any of you, even remember the old NFS multiplayer? Either both running away from the cops or chasing each other. The multiplayer in Carbon is not fun. I just think EA could have made it better. But nonetheless, NFS Carbon is a good game.

I just finished renting this game, beating it, and returning it. The game does not show off PS3 graphics. To be honest, it reminded me of ps2 graphics for "need for speed most wanted." It does not dazzle like Motorstorm. Moreover, the gameplay is virtually identical except that there are a few additions: namely, there are very few cop chases; now you have one person who drives with you as your crew member, which is definitely the funner aspect of the game; instead of beating people on a list, there are only really 4 "bad guys" and the goal is to conquer territory, so you go around racing at different locations and slowly conquer the need for speed world they put you in.
But the game's lack of visual flare and redundant gameplay makes this one to RENT rather than buy. That's exactly why I signed up with GameFly.
