    If this version of Need for Speed: Carbon either looked or handled better, it might have been a worthwhile contender. But this lazy port simply doesn't have what it takes to bring the Need for Speed franchise to the Wii.

The controls are AWFUL. The steering is done entirely with the motion sensors and it feels unresponsive. What's more, the graphics are slightly worse than the PS2 game. Other than those nasty flaws, Carbon on the Wii still has all the elements of the PS2 version, such as canyon duel, drift, circuit, and sprint, as well as the companion drivers. Full Review »

Granted, the 360 version was vastly superior for graphics and feel (emphasis on feel), but this is a solid racer for the Wii and similar in most of the ways that count. People who complain about the controls cannot be trusted- there are 5 schemes that all play differently so at least one of them should work for anybody. Overall an 8 out of 10 for being an inferior port of a near perfect game. Full Review »
