The Battle for the City is won in the Canyon! EA has tried to make this an adrenaline-filled action packed street racing game that will give you the same kind of rush as if you were taking on the streets yourself. Imagine yourself in your favourite style of car, the muscle and horsepower of the Ford Mustang, the speed and handling of an Exotic like the Lotus Elise or the tuner cars like the Mazda RX-8."

The Battle for the City Is Won in the Canyon. What starts in the city is settled in the canyons as Need for Speed Carbon immerses you in the world’s most dangerous and adrenaline-filled form of street racing. You and your crew must race in an all-out war for the city, risking everything to take over your rivals’ neighborhoods one block at a time. As the police turn up the heat, the battle ultimately shifts to Carbon Canyon, where territories and reputations can be lost on every perilous curve.

Overall: Game doesnt live up to NFS: most wanted but it does the job and was a real challenge to beat the canyons.
Gameplay: Gameplay was a bit boring at times cause it just copies thier previous racing games. Canyons were a new additions that were more annoying than anything.
Graphics: Graphics are pretty nice , but i believe they could have made them look more clear if they would have spent a little more time on them. Online graphics arent as good as the career modes. I know it says gameplay may change online but the graphics are totally diffrent.
Sound: sound is boring and like every other game they put out. The cars made the same sound no matter how much opgrades or how diffrent the exhaust.
Suggestions: Try to change it up a little bit. NFS use to be lots of fun but now it seems like you have run out of ideas and are just making the same type of game.

Overall: 80 %
