This is my favorite NFS game out of those I have played which is most since carbon, I can plug in my ps3 & pick it up just to sit in the garage & listen to the music, even just to have Estrak's Induction Kit & Belt on repeat. Still need to get my hands on earlier games & finaly play most wanted & underground. Love that the 2015 revamp is somewhat of an omarge to Carbon. While I really liked V8 muscle cars at the time I knew it wasn't the best car to take & Top Gear hadn't yet convinced me about the Alfa Romeo😅 this game gave birth to my love of the RX-8 & it's rotary engine, & grew my love of the fellow british born Lotus. Quite enjoyed the drift bits simply cause I like drifting. Really like driving around the free roam finding cops & burying them under structures over & over...then again I was like 5🤣 Also nice visual torpedo joke😂👌🏻 & turning you're controler helps, you phsycological trick yourself into feeling more in control - source "trust me bro". If somehow true it makes sence for how annoyed I got when I was playing like that...

00:02:53 - LOL - Just goes to show, always be careful what you say in an interview - no matter how long ago, it can come back and bite you :D :D :D There's a certain amount of irony there now too, since EA have recently bought Codemasters. I'd love to know what interview that came from. I can't remember now.

You can actually switch off the blueish filter with the video option "Visual Treatment" on PC, it needs to be set to "low". The game gets then pretty yellowish and almost identical to MW in terms of atmosphere, even though the action is set in the night. There's one disadvantage though, the lights of your car overbrighten the road surface in front of you a bit too much (as if there's no HDR). Also the flash-effects + afterglow from cop or jump moments are no more present. Despite of these two hints, it's enjoyable for those who are tired of the default filter. [=

NFSU2 ❤️ I’m sorry, but those were the best memories. Just the theme song being Riders On The Storm makes that game vivid in my memories. Those were the days. NFS, MC, COD, GTA, BIA, SSX, Burnout, Motorstorm, Flatout 2, Tekken, True Crime: Streets of LA/NYC and many many more great classics. Split screen gaming at friends place. Bruh, I don’t wanna sound old, but kids of today have missed out big time! It actually makes me sad, that it’s so long ago. Back when you had one roll in the camera and where every shot counted when you needed to freeze memories in time, which made those memories much more meaningful. When Bluetooth became a thing, when some of us still used infrared to transfer mp3 tracks to our 64MB memory cards that could hold up to 10 songs. When music was good. Rap, pop, RnB, rock with all the featurings in between. Those were times. I love that I’ve grown up in that time period, but I hate how I missed out on so much. Because after the 2010’s everything became lame. And here we are. Edit: And don’t forget MTV!!! Scarred and Punk’d and Pimp my Ride were some of the best shows!

NFS: Carbon was mediocre at best. It took the base driving mechanics of the fairly decent Most Wanted and made a half-baked rushed sequel to cash in on the previous game's success and on Tokyo Drift's release. I really didn't like the overall concept and gameplay.

I spent so much time with this game, as I had it on PS2 and Xbox 360. The canyon races were by far my favorite part of the game. Side note: do you have a link to the footage and/or any other information about the RX-7 at 18:22? I swear I built one in Horizon 4 that unintentionally has an identical paint scheme to it.

So, I got (and still have) the Wii version of this game when it came out (because I didn't have an Xbox or Playstation, and I wasn't a PC master race kind of guy yet). Now I'm mad because of all the content I missed out on, and because the Wii version looks like garbage in comparison.

dude i lucked out on the last canyon race, i was in the home stretch but my car turned to the side and blocked the road, i was gonna give up but then the boss rammed into my car and since he hit me it gave me time and points, since i was blocking the road he kept pushing me until he pushed me across the finish line, i was so relieved and laughing my ass off that the boss basically gave me the race.

When a RalliSport Challenge 19 years later and/or RalliSport Challenge 2 17 years later? (Also PGR 2 18 years later)?? ;) You have teased us with footage from RSC 2 and PGR2 so, I can only assume it is somewhere in the catalog/backlog for you to work on. ;) That tease aside, splendid video(understatement of the century), you really killed it with that intro(damn that one is good!) and the level of research, presentation and the way you can deliver lines and the information is something to be disgustingly jealous about (insert awkward smiley here). I only got into Carbon back in 2019 when I got my hands on a PS2, but never finished it because I was spoiled by my childhood memories of the OG XBOX's graphics and new PC games at the time, as well as it's cheesy story and odd handling(with a PS controller).(I am a difficult one to please at that). As stated, I grew up with the OG XBOX along with PGR2, Underground 2 and RSC2, as well as Crazy Taxi, Cars and a variety of other racing games. So seeing you point out OG XBOX games(like ColourShedProductions) is like I am back in 2005. Thank you :)

I really only played the PSP version until I picked up the 360 version last summer (so I could play Mercenaries 2 thru an online glitch that Carbon seems to be the only cure). Carbon is pretty amazing and genuinely dunce cap worthy. It has such comic book dialog to move the story, but I dig the direction because it fits a race gangster plot. NFS Heat can't touch the pedals of Carbons cringe-worthy lines. Imagine if Flight Simulator got a Horizons style subgame as a drug smuggler.

Carbon was the first game I got on ps3. I probably played through it 5-6 times. Perhaps it’s nostalgia, but there hasn’t been a NFS game that seemed as good to me since. This game to me will always be a diamond in the rough

Interesting. For me this was when I stopped playing NFS games. I didn't like it at all. Handling and the art style totally put me off. I loved high stakes, hot pursuit, Porsche unleashed, underground I and II and most wanted. Tried pro street and, the run and the latest hot pursuit, but those were not giving me any of the fun of the pervious ones.

Unlike NFSMW, i don't see why everyone thinks the PS3 version is better than PC/360 version, with the exception of better FMVs due to the extra storage space of BR discs, it only has per object motion blur as an addition and a more exaggerated bloom effect which is something everyone will try to disable on PC anyway, i think the choice is really obvious (modding + unlocked res/fps VS. motion blur/bloom and better FMVs)

Out of curiosity, I fired up my PS2 to see if I still had my old memory card file of this game. Sure enough, my file named “Moopy” from August of 2007 was still there. I pulled out the game, prayed to a higher power that the scratched DVD could still read, and got an instant boner once that menu music fired up. This is my favorite NFS game, and I still always go out of my way to race around while driving to Wolfmother and Gary Numan.
