Dunno if it's been posted, but there is a car list w/screenshots(72) and I KNOW they have Road America.

Page 16-22 is the screenshots of the cars.

Some upgrades include 3 stages of interiors.

I swear if this one lets me down, I am swearing off of the whole series. I have hope for this one, as it was rumored SimBin had a hand in it.

They are basically copying GRID in this game right? And yes if they can't copy GRID and have mild amount of success then they are incompetent.

why do they have Dodge Challenger CONCEPT, when they have Chevy Camaro SS (production).

Challenger was out on the streets before Camaro, why keep the concept and not production model.

I had hopes but not sure now. Carbon was ok, prostreet just plain sucked and undercover was driver mixed with most wanted and I didnt much care for it. I only play most wanted because of these things. I had hopes shift would be an improvement but now not so sure.

This looks like the best game I'll never purchase.

I think it looks better than GRID.

and I like Pro Street, because it was on closed courses. Can't say much for physics, though.

Remember, noone knows how this one plays. If SimBin helped out, then it might be "ok".

ProStreet was better then the other recent NFS junk like Carbon, Undercover, and their horrible underground stuff.

you'll have to excuse me if I'm a little less enthusiastic about this game than I originally was :(

I wonder what else they've dumbed down?

Don't you know adding blur makes any good game suddenly look awesome.

While simultaneously allowing the game to reach acceptable frame rates on consoles :rolleyes:

You'll excuse me if I fail to see the logic behind your "dumb down" argument. Those 2 pictures are not the same, plus in the videos you clearly see that the game is looking GOOD.
I have high hopes for this game.

GRID was pretty cool...for a couple of hours and then got boring fast. I dont know why it got boring, i suppose the gameplay was too shallow.

I like to see upgradeable cars like better turbos's, gearboxes, clutch etc ala Gran Turismo and a huge choice of cars that can be custom painted with graphics and sponsors. I also heard that simbin had some input in the handling side of the game but i hope they dont try to make it too much of a sim.

that's exactly my point. The current pictures of the game inside the ****pit are much blurrier and lower resolution. my guess is that they had to lower graphics quality to run smoothly on consoles.

I saw some preview from GamesCon and no doubt the console version have worse, more blurry graphic.

Lower res and motion blur are both things you can fix on PC, I would imagine.

At least they got some exotics in this one. The street racer sh*t was getting annoying.

why is called Shift?

for street cred, you need to use the "F" word and "****" a lot. Someone in the dev team obviously used an anagram engine and came up with SHIFT

More videos that show how bad this game probably is. Especially Part 2, ****ty driving all over the place - still 2/5 stars. Hardcore!

Despite the stated intentions, I am sure this game will be more mainstream than you would like.
