IGN gave it a very positive review and from the trailers it looks promising. I don't have very many racing games. I'm curious how it compares to some of the other racers out there like Grid.
Anyone going to pick up NSF Shift?

I have played the demo, its hard and very realistic. I don't want it right away, but Ill get it soon.

Actually from what I've read it's nowhere near as good as IGN's review would have you believe. And I hope you're not getting it on PC because it is horribly unoptimized, every second person - even with a killer setup mind you - has about 10-20fps on SHIFT even on low graphics settings.

As for the console versions, the handling still isn't as realistic as the real simulators, the vinyl system is whack (no mirror option, no resizing, etc.), and the car list is incredibly small, even for an NFS game. It's a renter game in my opinion.

If I'm going to be honest, in my opinion NFS has been going downhill for years. It has been around for ages, and yet it keeps trying and trying, copying every decent game there is and failing miserably. It had more than enough time to develop it's own style, but it completely changes from title to title.

Disappointing, really. Definitely won't be buying.

I want to go back to running away from cops and have a Great Story like Most Wanted and Carbon. You know,Illegal stuff. Undercover had some glitchs. Bad graphics. Bad car list, AND REALLY BAD story.

Yea i agree.I rememebr that fun 2 player minigame where one was a cop and the other was a robber and the cop had to get close and capture them by staying close/busting the car and the robber had to get away.NFS has been going downhill for years like Vasco said.

Rent for me at most.

I think it's been going downhill since Undercover actually. Carbon was garbage, but ProStreet for me, being the sim freak, was actually quite the fun game. Undercover was a steaming turd though.

Yes I've read that's really good. Gonna rent it though because if it's anything like Forza 2 I probably won't bother buying it.

Oh, whats wrong with you. Forza is an amazing racing sim. It is kinda repetative, but what racing game isn't?

In my opinion, the NFS series needs to go back to games like Most Wanted. That game was amazing.

Nothing's wrong with me, I just didn't like Forza 2. Is that really such a problem?

I have Shift on PC, and i run it with everything on max no problems at all, avg 80fps..

Anyways, ive been playing NFS games for a number of years and i will say Shift is one of the best games in the series.

Its still a arcade game, they have put alot of work into the new interior view.

The online is bumpy my Disconnect rating is like 67 and it is nothing to do with my connection, but if they made the game any more relistic it would of been a copy of GT5 which I presume they did not want, Cornering is just a joke.

My personal rating "7/10"

Still a game that has not fully let me down, its still full of bumps and smashes and the odd barrel roll.

I am a HUGE fan of racing games and having both Forza and the Need for Speed games, i can honestly say that even though Forza is godly and amazing, I have more fun on Need for Speed. Need for Speed: Undercover for me was a big dissappointment and im glad EA have produced the newer one, Need For Speed: Shift. It is the best one of the NFS series by far for me and i just love playing it. The camera angles are awesome, the graphics are excellent and there is a nice variety of cars too. However, there is not many tracks which is the only thing i can criticise about the game. Forza is good, nice variety of tracks, better graphics, and alot more choice of cars and how to modify them. All games have their good and bad points. But in my opinion, NFS Speed is brilliant, 10 out of 10 for me.
