ive been a fan of the Need for speed series ever since underground 2. Carbon does away with the nearly unlimited customization for a new canyon duel mode and a wingman mechanic. The graphics are quite good and the voice acting and characters are probably the best of the series. When your going very fast you feel an intense sense of speed which makes you more submerged in the experience of the game. NFSC is very short compared to the other NFS games. If you really trry you can beat it in one day. The loss of the dragrace and unlimited customiaztion really takes a lot of juice out of this game. The new wingman mechanic works farely well but can be quite annoying when your wingman pulls ahead and then stops right in front of you. Besides these flaws NFSC is a good racing game that should keep you entertained for about a week or so.
