Summary: First off, I must say this game was fun for wasting time on my PSP, so I thought I would try it on my PS3. Well...it's been 2 hours and the load has been stuck at 92%. I tried restarting the system, reconnecting my internet, everything. And 4 hours later....still 92%. Worst game for PS3. Even the awesome graphics in Assians Creed III didn't take this long. Seriously...FAK this game!
Summary: I know this is a good game, but unfortunate the disc that I buy was bad. When I try to install the game data the progress bar stop at 30% and the process never ended. I will suggest that the sellers test the discs before the selling in order to deliver a good product to us.
Summary: I got the midnight it came out. Wow, If only I could get my $59.99 back, instead I got 20 bucks trade-in 4 days later. I know driving games, thats my hobby. Level 1,2,3 no problem. You get into higher levels and you are driving the world's greatest cars, except according to programmers at EA. the world's greatest cars don't handle at all. My first car in real life was a '85 Lincoln Town Car. I took many freeway exit ramps and turns at 80MPH, the car made it.
Last-gen graphics and gameplay, poor control interface

Summary: Need for Speed: Shift was the first game I rented online from a popular site, and after 30 minutes I knew why it's relative cheap in price. Because it sucks. First of all, it kept asking me to upgrade the software, yet the upgrade download never worked. At first I didn't know how to get around that annoying upgrade screen, but finally I hit "cancel" and it took me past that screen to the game itself. But then, it required game data to be copied to the hard drive.
Summary: Like the title says the cars are not very controlable. Even in easy mode and after adjusting sensitivity you just fight the cars every step of the way. I had a Toyota Corolla that handled better than these cars. Game could be a lot of fun if it weren't for the control issues.
Summary: To start with, I'm a sim racing addict. I've played and beaten every major racing title to come across the PlayStation platform since the PS1. Need for Speed on the Saturn was actually what started my addiction. Sadly, I've watched as the NFS franchise has released a steadily declining line of games, waiting for something as groundbreaking as the first. I bought Shift and honestly thought, through about tier 1, that this may be it. Unfortunately, I had to advance...
Summary: I own a PS3 and a Logitech Driving Force GT wheel. I bought both in anticipation of Gran Turismo 5. I own GT5 Prologue and enjoy it. I also own Dirt-2 and enjoy it (once I adjusted to the loose track that is the nature of the game). I have no interest in using a hand controller with a driving game. What's the point? I'm looking for an experience as close to real as possible, without risking life or limb. That's the background.
Summary: This is a terrible game. I got it for my birthday and thought it would be perfect, but then I found out it only does multiplayer online. It went downhill from there. It is practically impossible to win a race. I haven't gone far into the game and I don't want to. Buy an older Need for Speed, this is a waste of money. I don't think it even deserves one star. It was a thoughtful choice though, Grandma.
