    Just boring. Can't say much. You make your car, you go on a racing and other stuff, and that's it. what a piece of damn bore. I rather play a stupid Hello Kitty game then NFS.

    This is one of the best racing games I have ever played. 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. Expand

  1. Sorry to say it, but the Wii version's at the bottom of the list for Carbon. It's not redefining the street racing genre, but at times it can still hit a sweet spot blend of intensity, danger and style.
  2. It feels more like you're controlling a puppet on strings rather than a Lotus Elise. [Christmas 2006, p.75]
  3. Need for Speed Carbon on the Wii contains some unique driving control options, but none of them can escape the sensation that this game simply wasn't built for motion control.
