Carbon is the first video game in the Need for Speed series released for all seventh generation consoles. Carbon features some of cars of the previous series, ie Need for Speed: Underground 2 and Need for Speed: Most Wanted, but also features a number of new cars including the Audi R8 (called Le Mans Quattro in the game), the Chrysler 300C SRT 8, Chevrolet Chevelle SS and Toyota MR2 Spyder.
Carbon features the Canadian actress and model, Emmanuelle Vaugier as Nikki, the main source of help and ally players in the Career storyline. Version of the PSP, Nintendo DS, and Game Boy Advance are known as Need For Speed Carbon: Own the City, is still based in the city of Palmont but with a much different story.
The game is also available in versions of Mac OS X. Need for Speed: Carbon pole position to win the All Format UK Gaming Chart on its first week of launch, beating Konami Pro Evolution Soccer.
NFS Carbon is a racing game genre made by EA Games. In this game we play as a street racer who had many enemies. In this game there are approximately 54 kinds of cars are divided into three classes: tuner, exotic and muscle. Tuner car excels in the control, muscle superior in acceleration and top speed and the exotic in the midst of both, sometimes to excess on top speednya. Each car can be modified for performance and looks.
There are several game modes, but can be classified into free roam and race. For the race there are a variety of fashion again, include:
In addition, we can also meet with the police, either in race or free roam. And usually the police have bad intentions against us. Fortunately we are given points in a folder called the Pursuit Breaker. With this we can beat some police cars behind us.
For graphic factors, this game is quite superior to the game in his era. Each car uses a lot of polygons so it looks smooth. In addition the use of high texture and using shaders, so it seems far more real than without shaders. We can also see the reflection in the car or the road. In addition, when we often hit will cause damage to our car. This form of paint damage that beret or broken glass.
There are weather effects are quite convincing. At the time of rain, the road looks wet and reflect on our cars. In addition, the car also becomes easier to slip during the turn.
To factor physics, this game is very good. Each car has a different weight that blew during a collision or when flying through the air. Muscle cars tend to be heavier than the tuner cars. So that in case of collision, muscle car will be easier to return to the game.
The best thing in my opinion is the sound factor of this game. If we replace the car's engine, the resulting sound would be different. Effect when the car entered the tunnel was worked well. Besides the response time of the race by the crew and the police also realtime.
