i just tried it and have to say it is awesome... its like a mix of project gotham racing and gran turismo... really fun to drive and feels realistic to some extent... the interior view is awesome... it runs really well at 1920x1200 4xAA/8xAF (60FPS+)... rumble doesn't work properly on the logitech rumblepad 2 but that might be fixed in a patch/driver... either way this is the only good need for speed game since porsche unleashed and that was 9 years ago!!

I didn't expect a sim but I was hoping for a decent game that should be fun with wheel and pedals thanks to the awesome c0ckpits and cars. But it's exactly the controls and handling that are so badly implemented IMO. Games like Dirt 1 (PC) or TDU were much more fun because you can feel the car.

So in my opinion, this game is bad compared to other arcade racers, not just sims.
My G25 works fine. Even rumble. I can also feel if a car attacks me from behind. Maybe it's your wheel and drivers?

I'm using the same I think, Profiler 5.04.110 1/21/2009 64bit. It rumbles in sync with the game. Felt like it should to me, little weak but it was there. My batteries might be getting low.

Fun easy run.

then you probably will not like Shift. Undercover was probably the worst in the series, and it has nothing in common with Shift
