so.......we own a crew eh.......well.....this is probly going to be the best NFS. cant wazit for the one after, see how ridiculous that is....lookin forward to it.
Latest installment in long-running series sets players loose in city streets, winding canyon courses on Xbox 360, PS3, Wii, and more.
The Need for Speed franchise has come a long way since debuting on the ill-fated 3D0 system more than a decade ago, and it's about to go a little further. The Electronic Arts-published series' next installment, Need for Speed Carbon, will see the in-game action spill out of the sprawling city streets and into the world of canyon racing.
At the game's outset, players will race as part of a crew "in an all-out war for the city, risking everything to take over your rivals' neighborhoods one block at a time." Police presence eventually forces the war out of the city proper, and the races continue on the treacherous roads of Carbon Canyon. EA is emphasizing customization options in Carbon, giving players the ability to set the configurations of their rides, as well as those of their crews.
While Carbon was first mentioned publicly in Sony's pre-Electronic Entertainment Expo conference this year, it hadn't been officially acknowledged by Electronic Arts until today. Need for Speed Carbon will be released this November on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii, PlayStation 2, Xbox, GameCube, DS, Game Boy Advance, PSP, PC, and mobile phones.
im so happy that its nearly out i will definitely get when it first come out (just hope its costs £30 or less)
HOT PURSUIT 2 is still the best Nfs game the rest are just crap (saying this i have got underground 1 and 2 and most wanted none really compared)
what the hell ...... justin1_1_8 i hated the nfsmw game. well, thats bcuz i only bought it 4 the psp. that stunk! it was a waste of 50.00. carbon will have lambos ...have you played most wanted on ps2 that had at least 2 lambo's in what the tronk did you get it for psp for
when i played underground 1+ 2 i want to play at the sun at the day so much when i am playing most wanted i miss the night and the dark so much so please ea you have the money take the time but please make it that players can play in the 2 kind of day time it got to have : cops,alot of cars,real damege,repair cost , citizen cars, about the real damege so i tought about it and it can be like a playing mode that you can change in the options like in most wanted when you can choose that you want or dont want damge to the car so you can choose if you want to play realisic mode or the reguler one the realistic mode will have things like when you crush your car realy hard like in 250 km in a car or a tree or a wall your car is dead you need to buy a new one if you do to much drift with the car the tires will blow up and you need to buy new ones take this game to anthor level and make it a dream come true for all the guys who want to race to be near it like they never was
I liked NFS MW and NFSU 2 and basically every EA racing game there is, but taking the action out of the city and into the Carbon Canyon sounds awesome! What I would like to see is damage effects, realistic ones (unlike the spectacular Burnout 3 ones, but still smashin' enough to be cool).
Not bad. Looks like EA is starting to get it together. Saw the video clip and it looked like some kind of muscle car (chevelle or something) was racing. Hope it's better than most wanted. Most wanted was good but had its flaws. Cutsceans were lame. I don't care if he was black and a cop. I would have kicked his a** or at least take his car out. Razor was such a punk I didn't care too much to get back at him. Espically when I had at least three cars that were a heck of a lot better then the M3. The soundtrack sucked too. Why did they have to try and make this game so "hip" and stuff. The Burnout games rule and they also have great soundtracks. One more thing. How about online play? R* has gotten that right so far. Love MC3 Remix, espically online. Some pointers for you EA. Watch the competition more.
i hated the nfsmw game. well, thats bcuz i only bought it 4 the psp. that stunk! it was a waste of 50.00. carbon will have lambos i know because i saw acouple of screens at www.needforspeedcarbon.com it looks like the best nfs game out there. Good going EA!!!!!
this game looks like it's going to be the best Idea NFS ever made. Can't wait to see how it looks on X360
all u haterz shouldnt even b here this is people who like and support ea games and the nfs series talk **** some were else S.O.B.s need 4 speed is the best racing game out there and no 1 can beat it Tats FINAL.......
its great they're releasing more NFS's...let's juss hope this one gives us more customising options and focuses more on the midnight illegal street racing feel. They need to add the old TUNERS...the Skylines, 350Z's, Civics, Acuras...the cars that u CAN customise in reality, not carrera GT's. Drags and drifts have got to come back in the game, otherwise its juss another MW
Wow the screens look tight. Brings back the Underground 2 and MW into something new, definate must buy for me. Now don't get me wrong, I was playing since Need For Speed 3: Hot Pursuit days.
This game will be on PC, look at this: http://www.ea.com/nfs/carbon/us/home.jsp The main banner on site center. All official confirmed consoles and pc!
All they need to do now is bring back Sgt Cross too.. "Nice Pinstripe..." Wait, this game is GOING to have police chases too, right? It better, thats what made the last game so awesome.
Wow. This game looks great, I am a huge fan of the NFS series and made myself dain bramaged, uh i mean brain damaged myself from playing NFSMW too much, i will get this game as soon as it comes out
Gosh. And here I was thinking the series was on track after playing Most Wanted. Carbon sounds like teh suck.
I dont think this game rokz cuz itz all the same. EA is makin games fast without thinkin the best parts Damn EA
im glad they brought back "Real" (ie. not rice berners) cars in NFS MW. if we're lucky we'll see plenty more porches and lambos in Carbon. lol they are even releasing it for the GBA. i thought that thing died.... Carbon better have police or else
I liked the recent ones, but I feel MW was the best of the most recent, with HP2 comming in behind that. They really need to loose the underground scene and keep going with their exotics theme. Thats what it started out with and should remain. No one likes going fast in a civic except people who own civics. everyone however likes going fast in a Ferrari. It looks like this is going to be mostly drifting, which is cool in its own, but makes for a horrible racing game IMO. If it is mostly drifting then I will pass, I tolerated it in the underground series, but just barely.
who wants to just go around just racing,and wreaking this or blowing things up? huh? Boring! Care custumization is needed,with a great storyline like NFSMW,I wish to see pink slip race choices also in NFS games.I loved NFSMW and I bet I will love this one too.
Most Wanted was good. It was nice to see them make fun of the 'badass tuner crowd' with those cutscenes. I'll check out Carbon as long as I can still drive and run from the cops like in Most Wanted. (34min police chase, awsome)
I hope that this time we have Honda and Acura cars. The reason because I didn't buy Most Wanted was only because I couldn't drive my Acura RSX-S. :)
well i think this one is gona be more drifting than any other just by lookn at da movie now since faf tokyo drift came out
we'll see how this one goes but in Most wanted customization was severly taken out compared to Underground 2...the game may be hot but i wanna see more originality to the titles and im guessing there will be no cops in this one too, underround lacked em, most wanted threw u to the dogs of law enforcement (seriously the five levels of difficulty were severely harder with each level up), i want something in da middle
I just want the great gameplay from the hot pursuit games,i dont care about all the customization..... well anyways its coming out for the wii so i hope it turns out good
Why can't they just make a NFS game that is like Hot Pursuit 2? Something that actually focuses on gameplay rather than boring and usless customization.
I miss the Undergrounds. The first was cool because it was different and not many other games like it had been released, and Underground 2 improved heavily on the first. If this one doesn't have drag, drift, performance tuning, and better online than Most Wanted, I'm not buying it.
