Very Good

Just another NFS series add on? NO!

This game has been treated as just another NFS game so i think it hasn't gotten the attention it deserves.
In my opinion the Wii has revolutionized NFS. With the controller there is a much steadier learning curve as a posed to a joy stick where minimal movements are exaggerated. If you you have your license, the first person view even helps.
If your a NFS enthusiast, prepare to learn to drive all over again.
For you people who say "I'm turning the remote but the car isn't turning that hard. It's broken.", it's because your stupid (your car doesn't have the capacity to turn that hard at that speed).
For the gamers, the graphics are a step below Most Wanted and focuses on building and defending your territory with a quant story. Customizability is to the max with fully movable vinals, sizable/changeable body kits and even adjustable upgrades. You are provided with old school muscle, high end exotics and euro tuners to chose for your career. To get everything it requires a lot of skill with each category. I replayed the short career mode with each category. Oh...and your provided with a partner to help with the minor races.

The Wiimote and NFS:Carbon are a fun combination.

I've Played NFS Carbon on my pc and on ps2 and i thought it was a pretty cool game. Good graphics, great game play, and lots to do. It doesn't lose anything from going to the wii. In fact the Wiimote give you an added level of control and way more fun. You can tilt the nunchuck down to accelerate just like a gas pedal or hold it sideways like a steering wheel to steer. By far the best racing experience i've ever had.
