This review is from: Need For Speed: Shift (PSP) (Video Game)
Unlike many previous NFS games, "SHIFT" has certain aspects which make it both fun to play, sometimes challenging, and something that someone could play for hours on end without getting too bored. There are many exciting cars to drive in SHIFT, including the Koenigsegg CCX, the Lanborghini Murcielago, and Gallardo, the Audi R8, Shelby GT500, the Bugatti Veyron and the BMW M3 GT2. Each has its own characteristic making it better or just different to other cars on the game, adding a more enjoyable effect as you try to unlock these high class cars. Many previous NFS games, such as CARBON and Most Wanted, customisation of your own cars went further than it should and even the ride height could be changed to whatever height you wanted and the windows could be tinted to whatever colour you liked. SHIFT is more different though allowing cars only to be customised once a certain number of races have been completed however it does not allow you too change the engine capacity for example once the tuning modification has been unlocked. One thing it does allow you to change though is the body kit. Once this modification has been unlocked, you are shown an image of the kit design and can choose whether to have it or not just by pressing the square button. All in all, Shift is certainly one of the best games to be featured on the PSP, I think maybe even on par with the famous Gran Tourismo.
