Summary: In spite of the bad reviews I still bought this game thinking the controls can't be THAT bad...I was wrong. I'm using the mono force wheel and pedals and trying to steer is a nightmare...almost impossible to even track a straight line..
Summary: I chose to give this game the lowest possible rating because I had high hopes for it, being such a big fan of the NFS series for years now, but I feel like the disappointing experience I've just had with this game will change how I feel about buying/playing another NFS title in the future.
Summary: Does not work on dell Inspiron E6420 Windows 7 i5 laptop, Intel 4 core i5 SSD nVidia Desktop , AMD Desktop, etc. No wonder kids bootleg games. Poor customer support, etc. Wasted hours on getting this to work on two current Dell i3 and i5 laptops, one Intel i5 Desktop and one 6 core AMD Desktop.
Summary: I installed Need for Speed Shift 2 on a PC with a 4-core AMD PhenomII processor and Win 7, and the game did not run at all. After the so-called Installation, the shortcut on the desktop and the items in the Start menu did nothing at all.
Summary: Installed Shift 2 for PC on a computer with an A8-3870K processor (3G quad core) and 8G of RAM on Win 7 using CH Yoke and Pedals for controller. Set up the custom controller profiles. The control lag renders the game unplayable.
