Gameplay

Like the original game in the young Shift video game franchise, Shift 2 Unleashed is a Need For Speed game, but one that falls decidedly in the Simulation game genre as opposed to an arcade racer. The game features first-person oriented racing in which players experience true in-cockpit vibrations with every scrape, bump and scratch that their cars encounter. In-game players pursue the FIA GT1 World Championship and GT3 European Championship via a point-based experience system as they take on the roles of real-world drivers and a variety of race types across equally real-world tracks in a wealth of cars.

Change the Game with Autolog

Shift 2 Unleashed also contains powerful social networking functionality, known as Autolog. Autolog is a revolutionary system that connects friends and changes the gameplay experience by allowing you to share virtually every aspect of your racing career both while playing and when not. Compare driver profiles and career status, share and comment on pictures and videos, send challenges, and pull news feeds directly from NFS.com and Speehunters.com. Autolog recommendations amp up the social competition of real-world racing by delivering challenges based on friend activity, creating a dynamic, competitive, fun new way to play both online and offline.

Great game, but default settings for the XBOX 360 controller are terrbilbe - just like the first one.

Counter-intuitive vs. Shift 1, but try the below and see if it makes a difference. I have tested extensively in both race and drift modes and can absolutely say the game just works for me now!

Feedback appreciated.

Here's the deal. I am a casual racer. I have tried Gran Turismo 4 (for PS2), Gran Turismo 5 (full and Prologue) for PS3. I DID NOT like Gran Turismo.

I DO LIKE GRID, Dirt 2 and F1 Championship Edition (have yet to try F1 2010, although I'm very interested). I originally pre-ordered this game for the PS3 but based on initial reviews I returned it prior to opening it. Since then, I got an XBox and decided to buy this game used (at a cheaper price) for the XBox given that the reviews on the XBox were better. I must admit, I really like this game and have spent more time with it than I typically do with a racing game. I adjusted my settings as indicated in one of the reviews and added Driver Assists. I play it on the "Easy" level. There was a patch that automatically downloaded when I put in the game (not sure what that fixed). I actually won a race (which I never could do on GRID for the PS3 because I couldn't control the cars very well). The thing that is really interesting, though, is I race with the view from the driver's seat -- I believe it's the best view I have seen for a racing game. Most other games I tried the view was too restricted but this game seems to allow you to see enough of the track but also see the cars behind you in the rear view mirrors. I am really glad I decided to give this game another chance.

If you love racing games - you gotta have Shift 2 - Unleashed. To me, it is one of the best. The music is great and the sound effects are real. It will suck you in and keep you pinned to the back of your seat. You'll miss meals 'cause you keep saying "one more race. Just one more THEN I'll quit". I love the cars and the tracks. There are lots of good racing games. But, none give me a "Racing-Jones" like NFS Shift 2. Well, I'd write some more, but I gotta have another go at Suzuka with the Lotus before hitting the rack. And, really... This stuff isn't just for kids. I'm retired and living on Social Security. Virtual racing gives me the kind of excitement I can get no where else. It's just such a blast...

First of all, all those people that say this game sucks because of the controls, well that doesnt mean that it is a bad game. You can choose what type of controls you want for example, of you want auto brake then you can have it but if you dont then dont. This game is great i bearly got it today and I'm 13% through my career and its almost easy even though i have it on hard difficulty (yeah you can choose the difficulty). So main point is get it if you want to but dont believe the reviewers that say that it sucks because of the controls.
P.S. It is pretty challenging.

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

Annoyingly, the idea that this is a racing "sim" persists. In that category it's a two star game, at best, but as a fun racer it works okay except for similar car jerkiness to the first Shift.

Great price, game in perfect condition. Much better than buying brand new. I'm a single mom, and I need to stretch every dollar. Thanks again!! My son really likes it. This review is late, because I bought it on Christmas, and my son still plays it. Thanks :)
