I just bought this game and got to say that EA has made excellent work. NFS: Carbon is just what I expected. Steering the controller responds as driving a real thing, cars look great and there is a lot of playing.
I don't really like street racers - I'm into more simulation racers like Gran Turismo.
Although Excite Truck and all the Burnouts pwn Carbon.
May get NFS: ProStreet under review copy as it's online, and if many here buy it.
