4.0 out of 5 stars A game made for 1 player 1 Jan 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game for my daughter (age 13) for christmas. She loves racing and since I have 3 girls age 9, 12 and 13, I had to choose something that will keep her interest. I felt Cars (for ds) would have been to easy after reading reviews...therefore I chose Need for speed Carbon. This is a great racing game with great music (get yourself plug in earphone for sound quality) you have the ability to choose cars and build a car to your taste as you progress. You also have the ability to choose difficulty levels (ie heavy or light traffic) to keep interest. The only downfall is when playing in multi-level (more than 1 player). The music disappears and you have only a single track to choose from with a single card. Now... What bothers me the most is the loss of background music...sounds like I am winging...trust me... it just doesn't have the same effect when racing. You hear the sound of the car racing but without the music, it sounds just like noise. Its a shame because the kids enjoy racing but became quickly bored. My daughter races alone.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great fun - to begin with ... 14 Mar 2007
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I play on racing games often - but this is my first one for the DS. And at first, it took me in.

First impression - 9/10 Great graphics, good handling coontrols, wingmen and good old nitrous.

Pick-up-and-go - 7-10 It is quite easy to get to grips with the game but setting up for a quick race may be confusing. Some of the options I had never heard of, like wingmen.

Graphics - 8/10 Good graphics on the racing cars and the tracks, but general traffic only has a few types of cars such as vans, taxis and normal cars, and they seem to have been ignored on the details.

Soundtrack - 4/10 Wow! It has real songs! Well, 20 seconds of each one and that's it. There are about 6 songs, each 20 seconds long before it fades out to the next one, therefore you hear the songs more than once each race.

Story - 5/10 Yes, it's a good story. You go round winning races to unlock parts, points and bosses. Once you complete one boss, you unlock the next zone to complete. Each time you gain reputation and a step closer to find out who killed your brother. I won't tell you who, but I think it is a rubbish ending to a decent plot.

Cars - 7/10 Some nice cars here. The DB9, a 911, Ford GT (a Clarkson favorite) but not enough spread. There are no very bad cars, and the first car (VW Golf GTI) is not that bad. The cars only vary when they have been upgraded, otherwise they are more or less the same.

Difficulty settings - 2/10 In short, there are none. I completed the game with the Golf on my first try. Not hard. This game has been made too easy without the option of being hard. Saying that though, the AI cars will change slightly so they are marginally too good for the Golf and too slow for the Aston Martin DB9. In theory.

If buying second hand, make sure you clear any saved games; one needs to progress through the game, to appreciate it more. The best thing about this game is the graphics which become blisteringly quick later on, and gradually throughout using nitrous boosts. There is story, which I have ignored, and only do essential upgrades at the end of each major level (city part). It might be worth spending a bit of time doing upgrades which benefit your overall score.

The tracks can be quite good too, but what is the greatest weakness is the ease in which the game is completed. I will have completed it in about 3 weeks at about 20-30 minutes a day. I am sure some will do it quicker. I realised too late in the game that what appears to be an opponent is a wingman (which presumably is someone on your side), a nice concept but I think they cause me more bother than help. If you race and avoid crashing within 10 seconds of the finish line, you will always win it seems.

Ignoring back story and opponents this is still an exciting game just simply to race and come first. Its years since it was released so one should be able to get it cheap and then move it on. I got mine cheap and will keep it to revisit in a few years time as I love racing games. Nothing will match Mario Kart as an all round racing game, but this one does have ultra-realistic scenery for its time.
