Summary: Too hard to drive a simple car! You have to follow the line and still some races are too hard! They give you a random car and you have to race it and you can`t modify it. It would have been a good idea to give you a simulation test or a training stage to run all the cars or the basics.
Summary: I wanted to let everyone know what happened to me after I bought this game. OK, the gameplay itself is incredible - if you love racing sims, this is the one for you. (Assuming your computer can handle it!) But that's not what my review is about. Here's what happened.
Summary: Do not buy this game. I have a high end laptop and it more than meets the system requirements for this game but it still locks up and quits working. I've checked all the forums for a fix and while there were some that had suggestions, they still didn't work.
Summary: I wanted to like Need for Speed: Shift, I really did. As with other games I've recently purchased, my Thrustmaster Ferrari 5-in-1 was not recognized after the game was loaded on a Lenovo Pentium dual core computer with a 3.something processor.
Summary: This game crashes every time i go to start a race. i thought i paid for a good product, but i guess not. i dont think im ever going to purchace games like this again. I have way better specs then what is reccomended, and it still doesnt work, not to mention it lags sooooo bad.
Summary: The game does not work for most PC games. the game freezes, doesnt work, or is slower then a turtle in the winter. this game is fun dont get me wrong, but for the PC it has the WORST qualities ever. even if you fix one problem, another pops up.
Pros: None: EA better come up with something better is my kids won't even play it!
Cons: You spend all your time trying to control the cars, witch makes it hard to get too the next level in the.. Not to speak about how my time the game crashed or locked up! If they make a Need for Speed: Shift 2 don't waste your money!!!!
Summary: I'm going to go look for some patches that may help, but the game plays for about 10-15 secods and then crashes. I have a xp drive to in my PC but it's for waaay older games maybe I'l try playing it from there. IT does use DirectX 9.0!!!
Summary: Bought NFS:Shift and loaded onto Windows 7, 64 bit platform. Nothing but problems and is still not working. Contacted EA Technical Support and they were sympathetic but in the end, of no help. This product should not be sold for the Windows 7 platform.
