True Driver's Experience - A variety of visual cues delivers the true driver's experience including a three-dimensional HUD that mimics driver head movement, inertia and G-forces. The depth of field also adjusts based on the speed of the car. So when the car is travelling at high speeds the perspective will shift to the distance putting the car/cockpit out of focus. Enhanced AI - A sophisticated AI system will mean that your races are more exciting than ever before. AI opponents will react and perform based on the player's aggression and overall driving skill thus creating race experiences for all skill sets. Dynamic Crash Effect - When the player hits a static object or opponent car, the player will feel like they are 'taking damage'. A combination of visual and audio effects will leave the player disorientated and briefly disrupt the race. Total Customisation - Need for Speed SHIFT features a comprehensive customization option that lets the player tailor every aspect of the cars performance and styling. Go under the hood to upgrade and tune your vehicle to increase its performance. The visual customization system allows players to personalize both the exterior and trick out the interior to reflect their individual style and preferences. Photo Real Cars and Tracks - Nearly 70 licensed cars are available including the Pagani Zonda F, Audi RS4, and Porsche 911 GT3 RSR. There is also over 15 real-world locations like Willow Springs and Laguna Seca as well as fictional circuits like downtown London and Tokyo. Additional gameplay features including career mode to be unveiled at the Electronic Entertainment Expo in June 2009..

    4 Star Rating Not a Sim but great fun anyway!
    By: ShotbyaScot "ShotbyaScot", on May 5, 2011
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "I am a racing fan and usually prefer Simulation type racing games like Forza.

    I decided to give SHIFT2 a go by renting it, not expecting much, but am pleasantly surprised.

    Put simply so as not to write an essay, this game is most definitely NOT a sim racer. The handling is completely unrealistic, with cars CONSTANTLY sliding no matter what you do. This is most profound if you like using the rear chase view; it looks terrible and is impossible to use as the car literally...



    5 Star Rating patched, now a great game!
    By: dorus2828, on April 30, 2011
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "on the first day i bought shift 2 i was disappointed, there was serious lack of control.
    But it got patched and i tweaked the steerwheel settings of my G27 and it was fixed!
    Now it is an serious good racing game/sim with alot of great cars and real tracks. Its better than shift 1 and on the same level of gran turismo 5. and its the best looking racer on pc by far, the graphics on pc are amazing.
    I would say rent it or borrow it and you'll be impressed.



    5 Star Rating Great fun, once you get used to it
    By: H. Jones, on April 15, 2011
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Shift 2 unleashed is a fantastic game, but takes alot of getting used to, many people on here have unfairly talked of the steering sensitivity when they have simply overlooked the fact that there is a multitude of options to adjust this "problem" although this will take a while, if your patient then the results are definetly worth it. I don't own shift 1, and apparently there hasn't been that much of an improvement graphics wise, but the graphics on this shift are still amazing. The races are...



    5 Star Rating One of the best racing games ever.
    By: Luis F., on April 13, 2011
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Being a fan of games that usually are considered more realistic (Simbin's games and rFactor mods, for ex), I am having lots of fun with this game. Can't honestly understand the hate towards it and the blatantly unfair user reviews.
    It's not only much better than the previous title, it's one of the best racing games to date, not to mention it's bloody fun to play.
    Does it lack a "real" championship mode and more in-depth tunning options? Yes it does. Does the AI goes a little beserk on...



    3 Star Rating Shift 2: Unleashed Review
    By: Adam McGee, on April 3, 2011
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Shift 2: Unleashed is a strange creature really. Attempting to fill a gap between the simulation heavy Forzas and GTs and the arcade stylings of the previous NFS release 'Hot Pursuit', one could question whether it's really a necessary release as the aforementioned games do their jobs so well, especially as the last NFS game only came out in November and still enjoys a fantastic online following. The original Shift had some nice ideas but wasn't executed amazingly, can Shift 2 improve on that...



    5 Star Rating More than just a Game
    By: D Evans, on September 28, 2010
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "This is more than just a game the extra work that has gone into the design and development is incredable well done to the boffins!!

    My Reasoning is simple,

    Drifting: - If you apply to much power you spin that didn't happen in the older versions

    Realism: - You can feel the torque steer when you slam on the power coming out of a turn as the back end steps out.

    Pricing: - I do like the way that the cars are bought for the realistic street price on the...



    5 Star Rating Best racer for the PSP
    By: Mr. C. A. Taylor, on December 31, 2009
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "The game play is superb, the cars are great fun and the soundtrack is excellent. I've played Turismo, Ridge Racer, F1, Motorstorm, Cars, Wipeout, Midnight Club, Burnout, Driver 76, Nascar, Sega Rally, TOCA, Dirt 2, Test Drive, Asphalt Urban, Fast & Furious and the previous NFS games but this for me is the best racer for the PSP, I love this game.

    2 Star Rating Absolutely stunning graphics. But, be aware of a Bug
    By: Ron Hughes, on September 26, 2009
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Great game & gameplay. Lots of locations, race-types & cars.

    The graphics, built on top of superbly rendered cars is real eye-candy.

    Disappointed when first loaded 'cos it flagged up my system was missing an updated dll, and needed to rummage thro' Google results to find what & where to find the update.

    Since then it had been go, go, go all the way.

    HOWEVER - tried to play the game again today 8/11/09, & all career data lost. Message boards indicate...



    4 Star Rating A very good game, but perhaps not for some NFS fans
    By: Naughty Boy, on September 21, 2009
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "This game is very similar to the likes of Race Pro, Grid and most of all; Forza 2, it's perhaps even more realistic than any of them, so if you are the typical NFS fan who likes the previous easy handling style games, and doesn't like your racers too realistic this may well be frustrating.

    At first I found the game a little unexciting, it has all been done before with Grid and Forza, but I have to say it does grow on you hugely the more you play.
    The career is pretty pointless...



    5 Star Rating A new direction, a startling new perspective...
    By: M. Hughes "Marrrfooo", on September 18, 2009
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "The direction that NFS has taken with Shift, whilst not certainly the new direction the franchise is expected to take permanently, has certainly raised a lot of eyebrows for what seem to be all the right reasons.

    This game offers what I would consider to be the truest driving experience offered by any game to date. This is obviously a hugely bold statement, and this game is by no means perfect, but for the target market that this has been aimed at it really is something very...

    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Having played Need for speed most wanted almost to the point of repetitive strain injury, I couldn't wait for NFS Carbon to be released. First impressions were very good. Graphics are excellent on the 360. Everything looks just that little bit more polished than its predecessor.

    Instead of moving up a "blacklist", this time the aim of the game is to take over each area of the city until you own it all. Races can be chosen in random order. Once you have won enough, a boss will...

    By: ---, on February 18, 2007
    Pros:
    Cons:

    "Whilst in Hong Kong last week my brother ended up buying a playstation 3 and 'Need For Speed Carbon'. After a slight problem with controller settings (simple to change to how you like for the game) we got underway.

    There's a great variety of races and definitely one that will challenge you to some extent, but at points you will find them extremely easy. The trickiest are probably the drifting style (what the film 'the fast & the furious - Tokyo drift' was based on) where you have...
