Looking at it through fresh eyes after four years.

Summary: It was four years ago that I purchased Shift 2 for the PS3. I absolutely loved Shift and was early waiting for Shift 2. At first, I absolutely hated it. The cars just didn't feel right. They were floaty, the back end continually spun out, etc. It was like driving a boat on ice.
Summary: Pleasantly surprised with this game. For the price, I thought I would try it. After the steering wheel response issues of Shift 1, the expectations were very low. I do have to admit it took quite a bit of tweaking to set it up, but I finally set it to where it is playable and very challenging.
One of very few NFS games i enjoyed. Some issues but overall very good game.

Summary: I actually enjoyed this game a lot on the PC. Once i got the controller dynamics dialed in so that the handling characteristics weren't so annoying the game play came to life. This game really needs to be used with a good controller or a full on Race wheel set up like other Race SIMs.
Summary: Much better handling than -non modded- Shift 1. although still doesn't feel real. i drive a sports car; fast! but doesn't feels like the real thing, its closer to reality than shift1 (wall magnet!) or GRID (arcade game anyhows) but still don't feel car dynamics like real driving.
Summary: The menu interface totally sucks, it's like they modded it from a ps3 or xbox to work on the pc. Bumping into other cars or guard rails just a tiny bit spins you out of control which doesn't seem life like at all. The graphics are pretty damn good.
Summary: This is a very good game. It runs great on my computer and hasn't had any hiccups. It takes a little getting used to the way the steering is setup in the game, but overall works great. I had no problems with freezing or shutting down.
