  1. We're definitely keen on the PSP version, serving up some solid racing fun that'll get your heart pumping and your fingers moving. Just be sure to get by with a little help from your friends.
  2. It’s one of the rare times where you should purchase both the console versions and the PSP version since both offer different yet extremely compelling racing.
  3. Own the City is a very different game from the console versions of Need for Speed Carbon, but it's still an exciting racer in its own right.

    Some people may say this game is good but i'm here to say that the driving physics are very strange. I don't think the tires have grip.. youSome people may say this game is good but i'm here to say that the driving physics are very strange. I don't think the tires have grip.. you just slide around. But if you are a person that isn't a racing fan, this game may be for you. Full Review »

    Frankly this is a patrhetic game compared to Most Wanted because it's on PSP. The online multiplayer is unacceptably laggy. Single playerFrankly this is a patrhetic game compared to Most Wanted because it's on PSP. The online multiplayer is unacceptably laggy. Single player races are boring and not challenging or fun. The cars, soundtrack, customisation etc. all suck. Then again, it is a portable game. It would be unreasonable to expect game developers to make a good game for a PSP. Now that IS impossible.
