I'm glad to hear some possative feedback about NFS Carbon, I loved NFS Most Wanted so pre ordered Carbon for my first game but was a little worried when I heard some people dis the controls. I just wish all the races weren't at night, maybe next time they'll put in some realtime lighting effects so as you drive around the day turns to night with different events happening at different times of the day. I also hope there isn't to much drift racing in it as personally I think drifting is a load of bollocks.
