Summary: I am playing this after Forza and what is up with the bumper carsI go clean around other drivers but at the first corner i am taken out like i don't excist. Racing is about avoiding contact not trying to hit somebody else as hard as possible. This is not a game for people who like to race like it should be but it is fun if you like to play demolition derby.
Summary: Owning nearly every edition of Need for Speed in the series, I've come to like how EA normally approaches a game - bad story line, cool cars, easy upgrades, and interesting "missions". They've made some really great games. When I see a Need for Speed game title, I should have certain expectations. That's the idea. The problem is the name "Need for Speed" has become completely watered down.
Summary: At first I absolutely loved this game, but very fustrating later one, then I got to the last tier and it was almost impossible to beat. In order to finish this game you have to be literally obssessed with racing games. I would not recommend this. If you want to buy a NFS racing game, then get most wanted. I loved most wanted it is so far the best NFS trust me its much more worth, and there is no major difference in the graphincs.
Summary: This game would be great if it didn't have so many problems. I bought this game thinking finally NFS has a good game that isn't all street racing. The game itself IS really good and is a lot of fun...when it works. First of all, there is a glitch in the invitational event between the Ford GT and the Viper. If you choose the Viper you end up sitting at the starting line unable to move. Second and most important, I had a huge problem with the car bouncing uncontrollably.
Summary: For starters, I dont hate this game. In fact the first 3-5 hours of the game are fantastic. It looks beautiful, has variety in the races, the "objectives" in each race give you something to do other then finish in first. And it is very entertaining though and through. That's when the issues start to show. Clearly this game was never tested before going on the shelves. More than a few of the cars have problems driving on the tracks.
Summary: I see where they are trying to go with the game but that should be left up to Gran Turismo. The graphics for the game are good but could have been done better which gives it kind of a PS2 game that was made just before PS3 came out. The controls aren't too bad the cars seem to just want to go everywhere on the track. Unless your familiar with the actual "footwork" of drifting it can be quite complicating trying to control the car.
Summary: need for speed.........i had high expectations for this addition to the series. it failed. the best aspect about the game are the cars with wide variety and some good racing tracks. the camera mode it not suit for all. for the hardcore racing gamers i suppose it does well. or maybe if you just want the more real side of driving. for us gamers that just like to play games it does no justice. this game honestly lacks originality. it reminds me a lot of Grid.
Summary: Okay, in NFS Undercover you couldn't get opposite lock if your life depended on it, in NFS Shift the back end steps out no matter what you do. The graphics are good, but compared to GT5 Prologue there really is no comparison. The fact that you're limited in how you get to assign buttons on your controller is a huge negative.
Summary: Ok where should I begin? This game fancies itself as some kind of a perfect cross between a sim and an arcade racer, but the truth is that it totally fails to accomplish this goal. It seems that being stuck in the middle ground isn't doing this new NFS installment any favors and let me explain why.
Summary: Need for Speed Shift is possibly the worst driving game ever created. An absolute fail by EA the handling of cars is so unrealistic and poor. The cars however are very nice to look and can be modified and you can even modify your paint job. However the career as usual on NFS is very good but again can get boring and repetitive as races to get much longer.
