4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good September 18, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am predominantly a simracer rather than an arcade racer, so I am reviewing this from the biased perspective of someone who typically likes Forza2, RacePro and Gran Turismo. I have never played any of the NFS games. But I have played and enjoyed the Burnout games. So I DO like arcade racers now and then too.

Pros:
- The presentation is hip and energetic with pulsing sound effects and visuals.
- The audio is cranked all the way up by default. So if you are using a driving seat with some kind of vibration system like an Aura Bass Shaker or Buttkicker, you will need to turn it down. Mine started getting pretty hot in a matter of a few minutes compared to games like Forza 2 and Race Pro- which would barely warm the units up.
- Cockpit view feels less claustrophobic than GT Prologue. Not sure why.
- Camera shake does definitely add to the realism and excitement.
- Money is earned pretty quickly so you can buy new cars- a lot less grinding compared to GTP. Also when you buy a car, you can later turn around and sell it for the same price as you bought it.
- The beginning of the game puts you through a trial race from which it provides you with a recommendation of the gameplay settings. This is a nice touch- especially for introducing newbies to the genre.

Cons:
- Although the presentation is more "hip" it is also much more cluttered. There is often too much graphics and too many statistics presented to you both in the HUD and after the race.
- Program is not entirely bug free. It froze on me twice. And on another occasion I was able to start racing BEFORE the green light!
- Load times are pretty long so I recommend installing it on your harddrive- which helps a little.
- Even in Pro mode (i.e.

4.0 out of 5 stars NFS... Shifts in more than just the title October 15, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game has the feel of the old NFS games, but they have SHIFTed to more of a simulater style game. Just not quity the same quality as Forza 3, 2, or 1. If your looking for the old style NFS games this is NOT for you. If your looking for true simulation, it's close, very close. Tuning the cars is a little more of a guessing game then Forza with no good ways to test your set-up with before you race. If your a fan of the NFS series this is a must have... If your a fun of the Forza series this is a game to have on your shelf but not to play every day.

2.0 out of 5 stars Nowhere Near A "Simulation" Racer October 13, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
If you enjoy the likes of Project Gotham Racing, Dirt, Grid, or any other title in the the Need for Speed franchise, you will likely enjoy the sometimes overwhelming amount of audio/visual eye candy presented in NFS: Shift. However, if searching for a "close-as-it-gets" simulation-style racer, such as Race Pro, Gran Turismo, and the Forza, I recommend avoiding.

Graphically, the game is beautiful. Audio is decent also - although not as accurate as Race Pro or Forza. Electronic Arts certainly did revamp their physics engine in this title, giving it a slightly more controlled version of the one found in GRID. Yet, body roll is dramatically over-done, creating vehicles that feel more like drift-racing air-ride suspension Cadillac sedans. Initially, I was convinced this was a direct result of a tuning setup/car type, yet was disappointed to find even the high-end sports cars - those tuned with suspensions stiff as a board - flopped and skidded from one side of the track to the other at even the slowest "highway" speeds.

On a positive side, though, it is certainly nice to see the Need for Speed line-up change things up a little by taking the racing off the street and on the track. Especially with the number of famous tracks (Mazda Laguna Seca, Brands Hatch, Silverstone, etc.) recreated brilliantly in the game.

Bottom line: moderately, sometimes majorly unrealistic vehicle physics and typical Need for Speed flash mar the potential of a great Forza sim racer competition. Simulation buffs should steer towards Race Pro, or wait for Forza 3.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable racer! October 5, 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As an older gamer i grew up with the NFS franchise, and watched it with some dismay as it moved away from track to street and then faded into obscurity. With Need For Speed; Shift I feel that EA has helped to bring the franchise back into competition with the Gran Turismo, and Forza franchises. Don't get me wrong the Undergrounds were excellent in my mind but maddening shortcuts, and opponents that seemed to have faster reflexes then Tron made it a maddening experience. NFS:Shift seems like a fresh start with beautifully rendered cars tearing up famous tracks all over the world. The car selection seems very good with classic imports for the Tuner, big american muscle for the Wrenchers, and the exotics that make us all drool like young schoolboys.
The cockpit view is very nice but still feels a little cramped for my taste but the detail has to be seen to be believed. Controls feel good, and the cars all feel a little different when driving them. The AI while a little bit aggressive when it comes to trading paint, or trying to muscle me off the track (NOT NICE!!!) seems to actually use some intelligence with racing, braking lines, but still is subject to mistakes. Nothing like driving through a corner at Laguna and you can't see anything for all the dust in the air cuz the AI took it wide, and is now in the dirt. I thought that was an Excellent little detail!!!
At the end of each race points are awarded based on aggressive, or precision driving (another nice touch) and rewards are doled out. Cash doesn't seem as hard to come by as one reviewer stated so it's not as much of a grind to buy upgrades for your favorite ride. Game has enough variety so far to keep me entertained for hours.
I think it's a great game, and well worth the time and money spent.
