Summary: I got a French copy, so I must plunge thru & find the English the files to figure it out, inlieu of reading the booklet, (things I typically multitask on the john . . .) It seems that you MUST log onto Origin's website to play this game, you must be online?
Summary: This is probably the worst of the so-called sim racing games. Nice try EA games, even the patch didn't help much. The tracks are great, the cars look great. But thats where it ends. Imagine in a real life situation where you run into the guard rail; does your vision blur and the colors go to grey?
Summary: ***EDIT*** I finally played it with my gamepad, totally frustrated all the way through. . So I finally decided to try to finish NFS Shift... . Well I must say the Graphics are really nice!! . It's NOT a SIM, not even close to a SIM! . It's an Arcade game, no doubt about that.
Summary: this game is ok. Sorry I can't say its a great addition to the need for speed family but it is fun to play, it does kinda remind me of a few other games that downplay the performance of the american cars.
Summary: The first game I purchased for PC was NFS Hot Pursuit, which I found to be pretty entertaining. Shift is much more a SIM than a game, and that's not what I wanted. I am disappointed, but for someone looking for a SIM should be very pleased.
Was a pain to get going, but starting to get fun now

Summary: The graphics for this game are great - I have it running HD 720p from my computer to my plasma (will try 1080p, but not sure if my CPU and GPU can keep up...). Unfortunately, it took all day to get this working.
Summary: I had a really tough time finding a reason to enjoy the game at first. It seemed ridiculously slow to install, I could have copied five data DVD's to my computer in the time it took to copy this one game. Plus my normally quiet DVD drive was making some really awful noises during the install.
Summary: ~opinions~ -I think that there should be more upgrades than what we have - Putting vinyls on the sides suck because there is no way to get the game to snap one on the left to the same position on the right so it looks even (if that makes since) -I think online play would be alot more fun if you...
Pros: Graphics are amazing
Cons: -If you don't have a steering wheel, you might as well not buy the game, any fast cars will be WAY too hard to control with a keyboard -Again... If you don't have a steering wheel, forget drifting -Need WAY more cars...
Summary: I made it about half way through this game and tired of it rather quickly. As a warning: Do Not Play This On A Keyboard. I have a decent controller and still had a hard time with it. While asking around I was informed that you would need a racing wheel to play this game well.
