Criminal behavior encouraged

I was simply shocked to see that you are encouraged to trick and avoid cops. In fact, after seeing a police car flip over, the game cheers you on further. I had relied on the E10+ rating to buy this for my son and had to yank it away. How does a company like EA get away with incenting such blatantly criminal (and violent) attitudes for 10 year olds?

need for speed carbon

Families can talk about why safe driving is important and why people should never participate in street racing in real life. Parents might want to remind kids that this game has an unrealistic lack of consequences. Families might also want to discuss the racing car culture -- why does it have such a strong pull? Why do people have such loyalties to different types of cars?

Vilonce is an issue

Carbon is a very fun game. But parents need to watch out for some stuff. Before every race there will be a girl to indicate when to start. Most of the time they will be wearing some suggestive clothing such as halter tops. Violence is an issue to. Players will crash into police cars and total them, spike strips will be used as well as road blocks. When you are arrested it will show a short clip of police tackling the player. Sometimes the criminal will punch but the cop will always win. Which can be violent for kids even though the cops are doing the tackling. if your kid knows the rights and wrong about illegal street racing it is OK

Uh... M&M?

M&M, at the start of the game there is a WARNING not to do ANYTHING that you see on the game.
