Review: Need for Speed: Shift HD

All About Symbian
8 June 2012
  • Summary: It’s yet another racing game for the new Symbian platform! It makes a lot of sense for Nokia to ensure this genre is strongly represented – it shows off the graphical capability of the N8 (and the rest of the devices in that family, including the C7) and they are strong brand names that give the platform legitimacy. Even though it’s more 'arcadey' that GT Racing: Motor Academy ( reviewed here ), Need for Speed: Shift feels a touch more realistic and a lot more fun.

Need for Speed Shift Review

VideoGamer.com
16 May 2010
  • Excerpt: When EA announced that it would be giving its Need for Speed games more development time to ensure the series would become known for quality, the racing community clapped politely, but weren't hysterical. Over the years the franchise has had far more critical flops than hits, with the arcade brilliance displayed in Most Wanted generally being overshadowed by the mediocrity of ProStreet and Undercover.

The Game Reviews
13 May 2010
  • Excerpt: Tired of the same old, same old? Have pimped out cars, ridiculous body kits and time-consuming cop chases outstayed their welcome? If so, do we have the game for you! It’s called Need for Speed: Shift, and it’s attempting to take the franchise in a different direction by creating a new, more realistic racing experience.

  • Excerpt: The Need for Speed games started out on the PC, and after a grueling yearly cycle for the last five-plus years and sales starting to dwindle, EA decided it was time to change up one of their longest-running franchises. They've split everything up into three teams creating entirely distinct games under the NFS banner and decided that at least one of them should get away from the illegal street racing theme that's dominated arcade-style racing for almost the last decade.

Cheat Happens
22 September 2009
  • Excerpt: Racing games are a tricky bunch. Get too arcade-ish and purists start to complain, but get too sim-heavy and you risk alienating a huge group of casual gamers . Need for Speed: Shift attempts to find a happy medium between these two worlds, and while it is a valiant effort – the game never really manages to get either right.  What results is a fun yet unfinished feeling of racing that somehow manages to alienate both groups of racing fans.

Need For Speed: Shift Review

  • Excerpt: Okay, hands up who’s been let down or disappointed by a Need For Speed game in recent years. Alright put your hands down. It’s no secret that the NFS franchise, although reasonably popular with the masses has lost the faith with some in the racing genre community. Full credit to EA for evolving the series and trying new things with their NFS releases. But they’ve been missing that ‘wow’ factor, that special something that makes it hard to put the game down.

  • Excerpt: Существует достаточно много примеров, когда культовые игровые сериалы ни за какие коврижки не хотят уходить на заслуженную пенсию, а продолжают вести неравный бой с наглой молодежью. Казалось бы, старушке Ларе Крофт уже давно пора внуков нянчить, но не тут-то было. Последние серии, рассказывающие о ее похождениях, и Tomb Raider: Underworld в частности, сумели доказать – мадемуазель еще вполне конкурентоспособна. Это был удачный пример развития древней игровой серии.
