Those games are 5 years old. I own GTR2 and LFS. The graphics on those games are dated. Shift brings fresh graphics to the table. It's something sorely needed on the PC.
I did some LFS laps followed by Shift laps. It's not the big difference people make it out to be. (except for car collision)
But there is a huge difference in graphics and sound.
Also, I get the feeling that Shift is really GTR2 with some EA polish and the difficulty turned down a notch.
