I've seen many wannabe gamers being put down by GT4. Unless you love racing and understand how it's supposed to be played, you will not enjoy GT4.

GT4 requires the player to be a lot more mature and skilled. Like my sign says "It requires more grace than agression".

Another addition to the Need For Speed series. Need For speed series has earned more than 10 billion to EA and still growing.

And coming this November (1st November) carbon hits the stores. Like other need for speed edition it got gr8 graphics better, game play than it competitors (if there are any). And one thing that Need for speed is not forgetting after its underground series is the intoduction of the new character and this time it's Emmanuelle Vaugier.

My fav game in the NFS series has been the NFS Porsche Unleashed. Amazing game with amazing cars and superb control.

The others felt too arcadey.

Let me see how Carbon feels like

I've played both NFS5 and NFS Carbon and trust me, this game seems to get horrible by the day.

None of that NFS5 realism seems to exist in the newer version.

LOL its only got released 24 hours before and he allready played it. DUDE we are talking about CARBON and not MOST WANTED. Plus it will be available in india from 5 nov as per ea support.

I was just talking to one of my frnd from UK he got the DVD collectors edition but can not play much. He is out to get a graphics card. He will back in about 2 hours and will tell me about the whole game.

IMHO its gonna rock like MOST WANTED. NFS lost my interest after that hot pursuit 2. Underground series was good but i quiet like police chase series much. MOST WANTED got me back into the action hehehe.

Plus the carbon story line seems to be good too a bit simmilar to MOST WANTED:

"Nikki plays the players girlfriend. And, and what happens is, the player left five years ago, and, and sort of left me, out of the blue, and I never really know what happened. And he comes back, sort of reclaim his reputation as a racer. And he asks me for my help in doing that, and trying to figure out what happened on that fateful night where he disappeared.

I reluctantly do so. I help him out, but I, you know I'm still very hurt and angry by the whole situation. Then as the, as the game goes on, you sort of find out, little, pieces of, of our relationship, and the relationship with all the other people, and what actually happened on the, on the night that everything went down."

The biggest thing is the crew member which i am looking forward too.
