I didn't really get on with shift 1. The game was ok but the car handling was absurd (and i know others felt the same). So, when it came to a possible purchase of shift 2 there was only one thing i needed to know - is the handling better.
Well having played today for about 4 hours i can tell you it's much better and the game as a whole is excellent. I've spent quite a bit of time on the single player and managed to increse up to level 12 (not sure what the limit is). I've played a few online games and they have been exciting. the only downside to the online was that occasionally the game would take ages to load up (don't know why ).
the game can be played on easy, medium or hard and as well as this you can also turn things like traction control and stability on or off. The green/amber/red racing line is back if you want it and i for one need it. i find it a useful aid to stop me entering every gravel pit.
well that's about it - great game with much improved handling. As there is no new Project gotham racing since Bizarre creations went bust :( , i'll have to get my driving kicks fronm this now :)
