Need For Speed Carbon is a Racing game available on the Wii. It can be played in Splitscreen modes.
Need For Speed Carbon can be played in a Splitscreen mode. Split Screen Multiplayer games involve multiple players by providing a portion of the screen for each person. This enables two, three or four players to be involved in the game using just one console. Although popular for the PS2, Gamecube and Wii it is becoming less common in modern 360 and PS3 games which are less willing to sacrifice horsepower from the visuals to accomodate the extra players - they opt for an online multiplayer mode instead.

OK, so I admit I was a little apprehensive at the brash boy-racer ethic of this game. Being slightly older, emphasis on the slightly here, I never really got into customising my hot hatch. In fact I didn't really learn to drive until my mid twenties. Thank god I wasn't born a few years later because I would have been well out of my depth if my peers were into this sort of thing.
However, after just a few minutes I found that my apprehension was unfounded. A nice young lady first reminded me of the rules of the road, before introducing me to the game proper. I jumped into a quick race to get things started and get a feel for the cars. After wrestling with the controls, and realising that the Nun-chuck I had been instructed to plug in was not required for the default Wii-mote control scheme, I was able to get around the track keeping up with the other cars.
