Shift 2 Unleashed
Soo hard to control the cars!!!
Today (Sunday) I got this game and when I got home I put it in the xbox so excited and when I did career mode, it went straight to the game and I couldn't go a couple without loosing control or crashing. I wouldnt buy this game if I were you. Waste of money going to return. I hope I can because they didnt even give me a recite!
The Shift series goes into reverse.
Pros- It is a good racing game. The Shift series has arguably the best tracks in any sim / semi-sim racer. The helmet cam is really good and the night racing is great as well. The career set-up is nicely done and better than Forza and GT5 which it will obviously be compared too. Cons- There is no reason for this game to take such a big step backwards in the graphics department. It is ES so the sound and presentation are top notch but the almost cartoon look and bad jaggies are a disappointment. Also the cars are super aggressive to the point of being cheap and annoying. Also the car handing is way off. Which is strange because the first Shift controlled pretty well for the most part. But I found myself never very comfortable with the control. The speed is great but with the handing it ends up being a negative. There is nothing wrong with it but with so many other good racers on the market, especially on the 360, I would pass this one up.
im being 100% honest this game is awesome its for hardcore racing fans ive played every forza that ever came out in yea if youre a huge forza fan in jump right to this game you will not like until i played the first shift that game is epic in this 1 is as twice as epic you got to realize that REAL race car drivers made this game in its based on real life i like this game because its hardcore it feels like im really racing in the back end does not slide out everytime you corner i guess some people didnt listen to the instructor in he'll tell u how to take the corners in to rap it up this game is not for a forza fan im stilll a forza fan but this is epic wheres shift 3 lol but this is a good game
this is nfs! this was horrrible!
right from the get go gotta say this is by far the worst race game ive ever played! the graphics are on par w nfs pro street but thats bout it not that impressive! the sounds are good the handling was terrible always sliding out on the back end like the car had no grip at all! if you lose 1st place you'll never get it back! i guess the forza games ruined it for me i was expecting an enjoyable race game but got garbage! shift 1 was great really enjoyed it then this happend! stick to forza's n for street racing midnight club la complete are way better than this easily forgetable nightmare of a racing game!
Worst NFS Game to Date
I have been playing NFS games since Hot Pursuit came out on PC and original Playstation. The arcade style and raw speed lured me in. You got to flee from police and other drivers while earning money and upgrading cars or buying new ones.
This was the first Shift series game I tried which I bought used for $17.99 from Gamestop.
The game is hard. Not Forza hard. You start out with a dumb car but half of the races you will be forced to use a car you're unfamiliar with and are unable to tune. Good luck not spinning out or crashing into every wall when you're thrust into a Dodge viper that has 4x the HP of any car you've driven to date and is also a Mid-engine Rear-wheel drive vehicle (MR). Also trying to throw the weight of your car is impossible. The Gran Tourismo series nailed this function and Forza is still sluggish.
On many corners they throw stuff in the the way just to make you angry. Try hanging wide to hit your Apex turn perfectly and as soon as you brake for the corner you'll hit a patch of grass and slide headfirst into the wall. Thankfully you can turn car damage off in the options. Also don't bump ANY cars if you're going more than 20 MPH. One little paint swap will pit you into the nearest obstacle and likely flip your car and force you into impossible last place. Not braking on corners will get you smeared into the wall.
The menus are annoying. They went with the fancy spinning wheel and moving screens to select race and options. I'm playing a video game on my Xbox 360 and I just want to upgrade my car. What I'm *NOT* doing is looking at pictures on a smartphone with a touchscreen which is what the interface feels like (too large of pictures and content to fit in one window. I have a 48" TV and I'd like to not see 3 foot pictures of what I'm not interacting with).
Luckily before I snapped this disc in half I found the receipt and promptly returned the game for GRID (from the makers of DiRT) which I've been much happier with. If you want a Forza-like game get FORZA. If you want a NFS game stick with Carbon or Most Wanted (good luck upgrading your M3). And if you love all things about cars get Gran Tourismo which will even teach you a little car history.
not a bad game
just bought the game yesterday and i think its really good. the problem is that no matter what type drive your car is (rear front or all wheel drive) the back end tends to kick out. The damage is unrealistic aswell if you crash into a wall you lose your front wheel and are either forced to quit the race or to finish the race in first gear with three tires and the front end dragging and sparking. But overall a good game.

Tough to be racer!!.....
This game is tough and unbeatable!!..I have to learn drift basic to pro..oh man, it tough cuz have to be master driver, and master corners each turn..I love it..it had customize after beat all events... it very fun!!...
Pretty Good Game
i bought this game a few weeks ago.there are a lot of tracks in this game with a lot of different configurations for a lot of tracks and a good amount of fantasy tracks witched i really liked about it.the career was fun and challenging at the same time it was just horrible when you had to restart a race and too bad there is no rewind option in the game which really sucks.but if i were a racing fan i would definetly buy this game.the new helmet view i would really reccommand to do races with the helmet view because this is the only game with the new helmet view.
Best Realistic Racing Game
I hear people complain that this game is hard and that the older ones were fun, but the way nfs make this game is actually the best idea they ever did because its now competing against Forza and Gran Turismo and that is why this game is in my hall of favorite racing games
