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: After getting used with driving in this game you get to like it. It isn't easy, but if you spend the time it gets rewarding. I scored it 7 due to limited tuning options. There is a lot in there, but not as far as I would like to see.
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.
