Need for Speed: SHIFT

Playstation Illustrated
13 February 2010
  • Excerpt: Need for Speed: SHIFT is the latest installment of the long-running Need for Speed series and has the level of graphics one would expect of such a mature series. The environments look great and the cars look stunning; especially the Chrome finish paints. For those who like to tweak their cars, there are a lot of upgrade options, from rims to engine upgrades, exhaust upgrades, aerodynamic upgrades, nitrous, race tires, and, of course, paint and vinyl.

  • Conclusion: Need For Speed Shift does exactly what it is made for: giving any driver the experience they want in a racing game. Want to just race some cars in various tiers on easy? Great. What to turn off assistance and live on the dangerous side? Have fun. Want to change the engine, check tire density, and see just what angle the rear spoiler should face? Go for it. Don’t waste time doing anything you don’t want, like waiting in loading or menu screens, go out and race!

Need for Speed: Shift Review

ME Gamers
17 September 2009
  • Excerpt: First Impressions My reaction is Based on the history of the series, some of the current generation of gamers most likely cannot recall the last time they played a good NFS game, let alone a decent one. Need for Speed was the racing game to buy back in the days, grabbing gamers’ attention on the PC and Playstation for a while. Before games like Forza, GT and Project Gotham, the first couple of NFS games captured the imagination of racing fanatics worldwide.

Expert Review

PSX Extreme
16 September 2009
  • Excerpt: The last time a Need for Speed game aimed at realism, as partial as it was, was with Pro Street. And while it wasn't quite the blockbuster EA hoped for it to be, it was a fairly fun game in its own right. For the next iteration, NFS returned to the open world theme with Underground, which, at first was terribly flawed by a framerate that would later get patched and fixed.

Need for Speed Shift UK Review

IGN
10 September 2009
  • Conclusion: But it ultimately does little to detract from the core experience and its many successes. Need for Speed Shift gets the most important part of a racing game right and it does so with a flair that&#Array;s uncommon in a frequently po-faced genre, providing driving that&#Array;s genuinely thrilling.

Need for Speed: Shift review

  • Conclusion: Need for Speed: Shift is a truly fantastic game. It’s let down by odd bugs and the online experience is slightly hampered by the countdown timer in the lobby. It’s something that is supposed to keep racing going, but does quickly became annoying as you don’t always want to go straight into a race.
  • Pros: One of the best looking racers available, large selection of cars and tracks, lots of fun
  • Cons: Controller needs configuring before play, annoying lobby system online

Need for Speed: Shift

  • Summary: Ani to netrvalo a jsme u konce. A jaký je tedy celkový dojem ze zatím posledního dílu, nyní již ságy Need for Speed? I přes drobné chybky se po opravdu dlouhé době jedná o chytlavou závodní hru, která téměř bezchybně balancuje na pomezí arkád a simulací. Sice se neprojedete s vozy tak hezky jako ve Forze nebo Gran Turismo, ale onen pocit ze závodění vám naopak nikdo nevynahradí. Závody vás jednoduše pohltí, obejmou a nepustí díky své nezkrotné živelnosti.

  • Conclusion: Ich bin sehr positiv überrascht von Need for Speed: Shift. Nach einem richtig verkorksten Undercover war ich mir nicht mehr sicher, ob die Serie noch irgendwann mal wieder gut werden könnte. Doch die Slightly Mad Studios haben alles richtig gemacht in meinen Augen. Weg von alten Leiern, weg von dem Arcade-Geblubber hin zum modernen Semi-Simulationsmix mit Arcade gespickt.
  • Pros: Superbe Grafik, Keine Framerate-Einbrüche, kein Ruckeln, keine Lags (online), Ermittlung von Schwierigkeit funktioniert sehr gut, Cockpit-Ansicht mit G-Kraft-Auswirkung unglaublich authentisch, Motivierende Ingame-Erfolge und umfangreiches Fahrerprofil, Gegner-KI verhält sich sehr glaubwürdig, Reichlich Material fürs visuelle Tuning, Ordentlicher Fuhr- und Autopark, Gelungener Mix aus Arcade und Simulation
  • Cons: Hecks neigen schnell zum Ausbrechen, Schwacher Mehrspieler-Modus, Geld für Karren bringt zu starke Vorteile, Kein Auto-sculpt mehr, Keine richtigen neuen Rennmodi, Boxensprecher wiederholt sich etwas zu oft

  • Summary: En definitiva estamos ante uno de los mejores títulos de conducción de esta nueva generación, como os decíamos antes uno de los mejores de la saga NFS. EA ha conseguido lavarle la cara a la saga convirtiendo a este nuevo simulador en una verdadera bestia capaz de competir con los grandes como GT o Forza. A nivel gráfico impecable y con una jugabilidad enfocada a la pura simulación.
  • Pros: Aspecto gráfico, Tratamiento de físicas, Efectos en las colisiones, Pura Simulación, Detalle de los interiores de los coches
  • Cons: modo online algo corto, Sin modo Multijugador Offline, Sistema de daños algo irreal
