You guys see the video and screens for Need for Speed Carbon?  I put a writeup on the front page.  Given how cool Most Wanted was, I think this could be a must-have.

The video did nothing for me, but I've been a sucker for the NFS series since underground (and whatever version came on the 3D0), with Most Wanted being the pinnacle of NFS fun racing.

This and Test Drive Unlimited should fulfill my arcade racing needs for a while.

You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

I agree that the video is pretty lacking.  All I was able to surmise from it is that you will race on winding mountain roads.  Other than that, I get no sense of what the game is all about.

I enjoy the NFS series quite a bit but after reading through the Game Informer cover story it sounds like Underground Redux which is a shame since I preferred the approach that Most Wanted took.

The story is the battle for "Carbon Canyon", a location in the game.

To me, it looks like the focus is on mountain drift racing. This is a must have game for me if that's the case.
