Reviews for Need for Speed Shift 2: Unleashed (NA)


A realistic sim racer or an arcade racer?

I'll start off with the good...good graphics, great effects, wonderful car interiors, fast and fun gameplay. If you like the need for speed underground games or carbon, you will love this game. However, if you are looking for a realistic racer, this might not be the game for you. The bad...arcade-like handling, the overall attitude and drifting section of the game is very teenager boy-racer, the host of the game is very annoying and EA cheaped out on the sound and made most of the cars sound the same. The cars handle great with a 360 controller, but are almost undrivable with a racing wheel and pedal setup which futher shows that this game was not made to be realistic even though EA markets it to be.


Fun realistic racer

Track racing made with a next gen engine. Nothing too special here, the graphics are amazing and the cars feel realistic enough. Pretty in depth car customization, from colors, to parts you can make your car your own. Nothing special but at the same time if you want a great looking racing game and don't own a ps3 or 360 this will scratch that itch pretty well
