Default Re: (Need for Speed) Shift 2: Unleashed release date

I played some NFS Shift 2 Unleashed today and to me it's a total waste. I really liked NFS Hot Pursuit 2010 so that gives you an idea of how I like a car to handle. For some reason I can't drive simulation type games so I try them once to see how they are and then never go back to them. You know when I was a young man I street raced cars a lot, on both asphalt and dirt roads, and simulation type games never give me a real car feel at all. I also raced dirt bikes in motocross and enduros so I've done my share of trying to kill myself. But I have give NFS Shift 2 Unleashed a FAIL. It might be just me but it handles terrible, terrible, terrible. Terrible I tell you.

Besides graphic... whole game is much much better. Car handling is a lot better, multiplayer is rather good. In gameplay this game owns Shift 1.

I agree totally,with a g25 and default settings I was having a blast.The handling is always debateable in any racing game,but imo it's pretty spot on I bought the maserati,look for it you'll know the one i mean Cheers

i'm enjoying it. except for drift which remains suck. but at least you can just skip those events completely (so far).

the good thing about this game, and that i liked with shift 1 too, is the sound. Forza and GT are brilliant games but the sound has always been a bit lackluster. In shift it's a full on sensory assault, just like a real life race car. Also the cars actually sound like the actual cars. For example - In this you get in an earlier GTR and the very distinctive sound of an RB26 greets you. Most games cant get that right.

The rearview mirror bug still exists from Shift 1. It goes black if you race with the Lotus Exige/Elise 111R
