Default Re: Official Need For Speed Shift thread

I can't play at all.
When I enter the game's menu, it is as if my keyboard down arrow is being continuously held. I've tried uninstall/re-install. Using a G15. I guess I'll try a different KB tomorrow. Visited the support forms and, man, there are a lot of pissed off people who can't run this game, but haven't found any w/ my prob yet. FU-EA

No just Med but Pro controls.

Could you post your settings for your wheel?

Just tired a few Tier 3 events, the Lambo duel and the DB9 event, and it's just horrible to drive, this goes for G25 and GT3 RS. Tier 2 is ok and fun though.
Have you tried the invitational events yet; the bugatti veyron one is frigging impossible on hard? You notice the difference in handling between the cars once you start doing the invitationals as you need to adjust the controls close to perfection for each car to even have a chance at winning(maybe this is why you were having problems?).

From that video it looks way too easy. Passing everyone on the start is a big flaw with driving games and GRID seems superior in that respect.

Shift is the best racer I've ever played, I've enjoyed GRID, DiRT and many others all the way back to frickin' Nascar.... but Shift nails it....

When I "play" anything I don't want a simulation of the real life thing(FSX aside) ...when its play time I simply want the game to make me feel like I'm a pro-driver, pilot, spy or whatever.....Shift, gets this so right, better than any before it. When I'm in that ****pit surrounded by the incredible sound...the car's physics are in tune with my driver's movement, the sense of speed, motion and progressive blurring, I just slide out of reality for a few

Excellent! I'm waiting to start it, got Batman AA and Red Faction games underway already. I was really hoping we'd see another great NFS game, I guess we have it!

I wish they would get back to the original NFS game-play and environments. It just looks like another track racing game.

NFS was about driving on real roads with traffic and real exotic cars. You had great videos about the cars and track info.
