Great, exciting, realistic driving game,
This review is from: Need For Speed: Shift (PS3) (Video Game)
I got this game for christmas and have thoroughly enjoyed it since i started playing it. The racing experience is great, on the straights the inside of the car becomes out of focus which helps you experience the speed. When you crash at high speeds you are blinded for a few seconds and the damage modeling is good. The overall graphics are very good.
There is a quite a large choice of cars, which can all be custormized but you can't custormize them quite as much as in the previous need for speed games. When you start the game you have to do a test lap so the game can decide on the cars settings, i would either go on quick play first or retry it a few times so you get used to the car because when i tryed it, it was my first time playing the game so the rival cars were all set to easy (of course you can avoid all this if you change the driver setting manually after doing the testlap).
The almost only bad thing about this game is that occassionally when you start a race the screen turns black and the race doesn't start or the car becomes uncontrolable but don't let that put you off buying it. It's a great game to play while waiting for GT5 to be released.
