Buy Dirt 3 instead,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Shift 2 - Unleashed - Xbox 360 (Limited) (Video Game)
This game on default settings is unplayable. To top that there is no rewind system at all. Another reviewer posted steering settings that allow you to actually get around a track, but even after that I couldn't play it more than 30 minutes before I shelved it permanently. I stopped playing it out of frustration and have zero interest in playing it again. That's saying a lot, I love racing games. Not this though.
Dirt 2 and 3 are the pinnacle of fun auto racing; Forza is the ultimate in cool auto racing; Shift 2 is... well there's nothing left for Shift 2 to be.. except bad.. and nearly unplayable even after the settings correction. It looks and sounds cool sure, but no better than F3, and worse than either D2/3.
These are the settings another reviewer posted that "helped":
Steering Dead Zone: 3 <-- Key Change
Accelerator (throttle) Dead Zone: 5
Brake Dead Zone: 5
Steering Sensitivity: 50 <-- MOST CRITICAL CHANGE
Acceleration (throttle) Sensitivity: 50
Braking Sensitivity: 50
Speed Steering Sensitivity: 100

Who said "realistic driving simulator?" It doesn't really matter what YOU call it though, it's still bad and virtually unplayable.
I did get Dirt 3, for the xbox, and it's one of the funnest video games I've ever played.

This game is great, Ive played Forza for many years and it was nice to switch it up a little bit, Forza gets soo boring and dull sometimes. This games cockpit veiw is amazing, feeling the sense of speed and g force. I honestly like this game as much as forza 4 if not more, more challenge and more fun. You have to give this game a chance though, you cant just play it for 20 mins and expect to be good at it, its somthin thats gotta be learned just like forza. Once you do get the hang of this game it really is great. i'd give it a 8/10.. really impressive!
