2 out of 5 eggsSave your $

Pros: Something to play when you are sick
of every other game you have.

Cons: NFS Underground still looks better
than this cheesy looking game.The
blur effect is NOT realistic-just
irritating.I can't get into the
stupid storyline-I just want to race.Pursuits are lame-they never
catch you.

Other Thoughts: Feel like I have to play this lousy
game now that I paid for it.

2 out of 5 eggsNot worth the cash

Pros: canyon race is fun, cool to be able to beat the "bosses" and win their cars. Thats about all

Cons: graphics are good, but you need a fairly quick card (faster than a 8600gt) to even get the res to 1024 x 1280. if you played most wanted and like it, this is a step backwards.

Other Thoughts: i ran it on my e521 with a x2 3800 2.0 ghz processor, 1 gig ram, and a radeon x1300pro and had to play at 800 x 600, after installing a 8600gt i could get to 1024 x 768. if you have most wanted just replay that and don't buy this one

1 out of 5 eggsCool game, but only if it runs.

Pros: Incredible graphics and audio.

Cons: Despite the awesome graphics, audio, and gameplay, this is a very poorly designed game. The game is VERY buggy. Despite having all compatible hardware and software, the game constantly crashes to the desktop, and on occasion, will get a blue screen of death. I can't play 5 minutes without the game crashing. I would definitely save your money.

Other Thoughts: I am now very hesitant to purchase another game from Electronic Arts. The people posting on EA's forums are constantly complaining about the game crashing, and EA has yet to come up with a patch that resolves the situation.

2 out of 5 eggsEA drops the ball again.

Pros: The cars are great, the overall customization level available is superb. The "speed breaker" is a great concept carried over from Most Wanted. And Drifting is back!

Cons: Just seems like this title was rushed way too much, and EA is living up to it's (bad) reputation of a complete lack of support. There has been one patch that addressed some miniscule online server issue and none of the many major issues raised by the forum-posting public. The game randomly crashes to the desktop, a major flaw if you don't use autosave, (and sometimes even if you do). The city is boring and small. The AI is sketchy at best and the gameplay is simply below par throughout. Lack of any kind of realistic damage and a video replay mode are major letdowns (again).

Other Thoughts: Most Wanted is a better game in every way save the car customization and lack of drift mode. I am a huge fan of the racing genre and have owned every NFS title since Porsche Unleashed and it is sad to see EA let the series deteriorate the way it has. Considering it was only 12 months between titles, could you really expect a fully polished game in that time? But people (myself included) continue to give EA our money, so what are they going to do? I for one have become a huge fan of FlatOut 2 and think it is far superior gameplay-wise. But people continue to be drawn to the flashy graphics and fancy cars of Need For Speed, so we will continue to be subject to low-quality gameplay until EA decides to sell the franchise or take the time to put out a high-quality game.

5 out of 5 eggsBOBS review

Pros: Regions was a risk board game based idea, Single city for starters. Multiplayer is for multiple wild animals to interface and crash to there hearts content while being able to cut scene when the AI catches them. Still has the pretty garage and wonderfull chica graphics. Excellent playability, some are already stuck on this while others only pop in to play for a lil while before going back to a foot game.

Cons: City is to small and beta like. Garage will have more cool stuff.

Other Thoughts: ?

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Looks good, ok story line, DVD format, don't have to run from the cops forever like in most wanted

Cons: The car ratings. I understand that this is a game, but some cars are given way more power and performance than they should. There are cars that should be better than others and they just aren't. The game is way too short, beat career mode in 4 days. City isn't as fun to explore as most wanted. They also advertised cars that hardly appear in the game. The performance of the muscle cars is way too over exaggerated.

Other Thoughts: Basically Most wanted was a much better game. As others have said, it takes more than changnig it back to all night and making classes of cars to release a new game. It is an ok game and entertaining, just not worth the full price. It is especially disappointing if you are a car fan and have some idea of how cars rank against each other in real life.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's from EA

Pros: The new auto-sculpt feature, very cool. I'd like to see them use this in all the NFS games from now on! Teamwork: Awesome idea, but it's a new idea. I'd like to see this get improved on. Overall game, in playability, story line, features, and system requirements, I give this game a 4 out of 5.

Cons: Teamwork needs improving. Cutscenes- there needs to be less of them, just let me play the game!

Other Thoughts: I can't wait until Need For Speed Oxygen comes out.

3 out of 5 eggsDisappointing

Pros: I liked the added ability of drifting the cars.

Cons: It just doesn't stack up to Need For Speed:Most Wanted. It takes more than just changing the races to night time.

Other Thoughts: I hope they try again and do a better job. In Most Wanted I'd find myself trash-talking other drivers (especially after taking their pink slips). In Carbon I just laughed at them.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat fun, fast game!

Pros: awesome game, really fast gameplay, and quite addicting.
it does get slightly repetitive after a while, but it's very very fun, and fast. Game is somewhat short, but the fun, and replayability was worth it

Cons: doesn't support high resolution, or widescreen, but it still looks great.

Other Thoughts: it's a game of toal pwnage
