Bad Reviews??? WHY?? Best NFS Game in the Franchise,
This review is from: Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
I can't understand why this game is so poor in people's views. This is as close as you will get to real car racing at the moment without it feeling overly simulated e.g Hot Pursuit or too technical to be fun (GT 5). It blends both real simulation with arcade racing getting a feel of a game somewhere in the middle of Forza 3 and Blur. In my view Hot Pursuit was amazingly bad, I could just hold down accelerate and not even have to steer, the game felt like it was not actually the user playing it. So I went back to original Shift and I then realised how much better shift really was. So now with Shift 2 Unleashed it has brought out a more polished, and better game than before with improved controlls, viewing angle's, onilne, singleplayer, graphics and autolog (the only good part about Hot Pursuit). So if you have an Xbox or PS3 I would very much consider this amoung the top racing games avaliablle at the moment.
