Hi there. We’re moving into part two of our look back at gaming’s less impressive automobiles. Here’s part one, in case you missed it.   Proton Wira – Network Q RAC Rally Championship (Europress, 1996) Without stepping into review territory, it’s hard to credit that this game was once considered ‘da bomb’, if you forgive […]

No-one likes the tuna here, asshole

Hello there. We return to the Need for Speed series for today’s review, of the 2006 instalment, Need for Speed: Carbon.
