Need For Speed Carbon was released in 2006 after the original, Most Wanted, in 2005, To a lot of people, it was a bit of a letdown due to the fact that it was essentially a continuation of Most Wanted's storyline. However, the main aim of the game had nothing to do with exciting cop chases or even realistically modifying cars. But, there were some pretty epic features that were offered in Carbon, such as the return of drift racing, which was absent in Most Wanted – and it featured far more realistic car control.
What some claim to be the death of Need For Speed Carbon was when EA games sold the developer rights to Junkie XL, with their first Need For Speed release being the following year in 2007, with Need For Speed Pro Street. This one contained revolutionary photo-realistic graphics and simulator-like game physics.
But Pro Street lacked anything to do with street racing and, ever since then, true Need For Speed fans continuously go back and relive those exciting games, such as Carbon. But, they are not even close to anything a modern Need For Speed game offers, think Need For Speed Heat, with its modern car offerings, open and online world gameplay and, of course, the best graphics ever added to any Need For Speed game in the past.
What developers from Xplay and Strelitzia have done, is release a brand new textures and car package to transform Need For Speed Carbon into a modern-looking racing game, with drastically improved graphics as well as a whole collection of cars which include but not limited to:
- Koenigsegg Regera
- Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat
- Lamborghini Huracan Performante
- Ferrari FXX K Evo
- Chevrolet Impala SS ’64
- Various Beck Kustoms F132 HotRod
- Acura NSX 2017
- BMW M2 (F87)
- Subaru WRX STI
- Chevrolet Corvette C7 Z06
- Mercedes Benz AMG GT3
- Volkswagen Golf GTI 16v MK2 Pandem
