Summary: This is absolutely, positively, THE worst racing game I have EVER played in my ENTIRE life. The handling is 100% broken, the graphics are terrible, and did I mention the handling....WOW. 0/5 stars. I don't mean any disrespect to the developers but WOW, you don't have a clue about racing games!!!
Summary: This game is called Shift 2; but it is worse than shift 1. I guess we should call it Shift 0 to be more precise. There is no improvement over shift 1 but has worse control and worse graphics, same type of career track and bad default setting (this can be fixed after you install the game). Our only hope is there is an update from EA to fix the control while the graphics is done for.
Summary: It takes over 35 minutes to install on Windows 7. It is inernet only. Why sell it in a store? When it loads the only option is to watch a 20 minute video. You have no control what so ever to set up your controls without watching feature length videos. Where is the Game?
Summary: If only I had the software for video capture to show you all how horrible this game is. I can't even express how mad I am at this game. I bought this game expecting everything great from Shift plus something new (as this tends to be how companies maintain their reputation and fan base) but was very unpleasantly surprised with just how atrocious this game turned out to be. It feels like the game is drunk.
Summary: do not buy this game. if you like 1st Shift, stick to it. this game has no settings for custom h-shifter, in comparison to 1st. Graphics are very poor. total waist of money. looks like they spend a week in updating the their 5 year old game by adding the intro videos to it and lineup of cars. big mistake to follow the advertising on this waist of time. i hope Codemasters are on the different track with Dirt3.
Summary: I hoped for a REALISTIC game with detailed graphics. This game belongs on an analog CRT TV, similar to the "PacMan" days. Anybody that likes this game is the "arcade type;" Sensless crashes blurry instruments...Even the rear-view mirror image is blurry! Viper GT Racing, from the early 90s, has superior graphics compared to this pig of a game! Simply awful!
Summary: I am so disappointed with this game. I wanted it to be good so bad. I feel like I'm one of the only people left that remembers the glory days of the original Need for Speed, its sequel, the original hot pursuit, and my favorite, Porsche Unleashed. Ever since then this series has steadily declined to immeasurably low levels. This game is touted as a simulation, but it is only a terrible console port like all the Need for Speed games of the past decade.
