Need for Speed : Carbon

Need for Speed: Carbon, also known as NFS Carbon or NFSC is an Electronic Arts video game belonging to the Need for Speed series

Game Play

Players run a crew and can hire specific street racers to be in their crew. Each hirable street racer has two skills, one which is a racing skill (scout, blocker, and drafter) and a non-race skill (fixer, mechanic, and fabricator). Each skill has different properties from finding hidden alleys/back streets to reducing police attention.

In career mode, players have to race tracks to conquer territories and face off against bosses to conquer districts.

The game also features the return of drift racing, a mode that had been included in two previous installments Need For Speed: Underground and Need For Speed: Underground 2, but omitted from Carbon's predecessor, Most Wanted; and new style of race, Canyon Racing, based on Japanese Touge races. There are 4 types of Canyon Races: Canyon Duel, Canyon Race (essentially a sprint or "Canyon Sprint"), Canyon Checkpoint and Canyon Drift. Canyon Duels consists of two stages. The first part the follower gains points contingent on how tight and aggressive he/she can follow the leader. The second stage the follower takes the lead and loses points depending on how good the first stage leader follows the follower. The follower wins the duel by reaching the finish line with points. The leader loses the race if the follower passes the leader for 10 seconds. The follower loses the race if he/she falls behind for 10 seconds. Either car will lose the race if he/she crashes through the cliff. Checkpoint races works the same way Tollbooth races worked in Most Wanted—players must get from one point to another within the alloted time. The Drag race mode has been omitted from Carbon, previously featured in Underground, Underground 2, and Most Wanted.

The Need for Speed: Carbon Collector's Edition features 4 exclusive cars, 10 pre-tuned cars (out of the box), 6 new races, 3 unique challenge events, 10 unique vinyls and a Bonus DVD showing the making of Carbon and showcasing all the cars used in the game. The Collector's Edition also features alternate box art and metallic finish packaging. Although the Mac edition doesn't display the Collector's Edition title, it contains all Collector's Edition features.

The mobile edition of the game (Own the City) features the Audi TT and the Chevrolet Cobalt SS, while the downloaded version of the game features the Ultimate Performance Kit, 2006 Pagani Zonda F and the 1971 Dodge Challenger.

There is also the ability now to upload one's in game screenshots to the Need for Speed website, complete with stats and modifications. Also, the PC, Xbox 360, and PS3 versions features an online only, "Be the Cop" racing mode, wherein the fastest player has to try and evade the others who are all police; once someone overtakes the fastest player they then become the hunted car.
