Even though this game seems to be Hot Pursuit 2 its the best racing game i have played in a long time the cars are great, the challenges are challenging and the streets are crazy. I give this game a 9 earning more money per race would have earned it a 10 but all in all i really liked this game alot
Although the game has a lot of the same thing as NFS Most Wanted... many new features were installed that changed it. Sculpting ability, new paint, new cars, and new tracks all add to the enjoyment of this game.
I personally love Xbox Live... but that's why I play Project Gotham when i want to jump online. That doesn't change the fact it's a good game.
If you liked Most Wanted, you will love this game, if not more.

Need For Speed Carbon is a great game, the addition of drafters, blockers, and seekers makes for a new twist. At times these new team members hurt your chances they constantly block you path and cause you to crash. Overall the career mode is way to short I have been playing for three hours and have completed 65% of the game. If you like racing games and have beaten Gran Turismo or Forza do not purchase this game ONLY rent it due to the length, your money would be better spent on something else. Please do not get me wrong this is a great game and it offers many upgrades from Most Wanted, the customization and performance levels are the best for the series. My only real complaint is the shortness of the game.
