I LOVED NFS Most wanted. So my anticipation of Carbon was understood. I'm a bit under whelmed of the game. I figured, next gen, the potential was unmeasured. That seems to be the point of the entire game. You feel the sense of something lacking, like you had a great meal, but plenty of room for dessert. That dessert just never comes in this game. I miss the cop chases, the sun, more edge of your seat action. Drifting sucks. I need more speed after playing need for speed. Go figure. It's a good game, but that's it....good.
but not outstanding. i agree that the graphics do not fully exploit the capability of the PS3. fairly easy to defeat as well. Most wanted took me twice as long to finish. decent game that keeps you entertained for a few days, but doesn't carry you much further than that.
Why does this game have such a low rating? (4.9 As I write this). It's a really good racing game, and definitely one of the best of the Need For Speed franchise. It isn't perfect, but it's good. It has good ratings on the other systems, and why not the PS3? I personally beat it for the Xbox 360, but it's the game, so the ratings should not differ so much.
