  • Summary: Very good graphics; sometimes has frame rate issues. Realistic handling though, although AI is too good to be real. Sometimes drivers actually screw up, but not in this game. Other than that, solid racing overall.

  • Summary: After I spend some more time with this game I'll write a follow-up review
  • Pros: Graphics are pretty Awesome! Running on a single 2360SE Opty with 8GB DDR2667 ECC Reg memory, 2 x PNY GTX465's in SLI, 74GB Raptor, 1KW SR PC Power&Cooling P/S, Win 7 ULT x64 currently with a Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel/pedals - runs very smooth
  • Cons: Something about the graphics settings is very touchy - I'm trying 3 x 24" viewsonic VX2433's and after loading I set the graphics to 5760 x 1080 x 32 x 8xAA and the adjustable settings to "high" - big mistake! after going through "hell" to get back to the settings, I dropped the AA to 2x and lowe...

Need For Speed:Shift

Roger S. Bullock, Amazon

  • Summary: Before making a purchase, I always do my homework. As much as I hate Electronic Arts I must say, they have a winner with Need For Speed:Shift. This is the reason why it is being attacked up here.

M. Holdridge, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: beautiful, great graphics. realistic in every way but damage -- I routinely bump/crash into people to move them out of my way with no effect on the cars handling or performance. There is a setting that supposedly makes damage effective but it does nothing in the actual game -- its the only area the...

The Good, Bad and Ugly

Zeppelin, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: THE GOOD: Finally we have a Need For Speed that goes back to the roots of the franchise. IN COCKPIT driving, not mindless 'behind the car' arcade non sense. The fact that NFS moved to the arcade style around the time when Porsche Unleashed came out was a shame.

Good game, but loading data before each race is too slow

  • Summary: The title says it all. This is a good game with cool graphics, but the only issue is that it loads too slow between each race session

Fun for a short while

Justin T. Meyer, Amazon
21 February 2010
  • Summary: This is a really fun game. Only problem was it was over a little too fast. But you can play it on line with other people and continue to grow your car collection so all in all a good game. The graphics and attention to detail was outstanding.

Great game

21 February 2010
  • Summary: Great game... It is a totally different concept from other similar games, a lot of cars 2 play, the cars are easier 2 upgrade (engine, lays, etc) and most of all awesome graphics. I buy it from "Life Enterprise Global LLC" in great condition, almoust new... Highly recomended! Game and buyer ;)
