Best PSP Need for speed yet.,
This review is from: Need For Speed: Shift (PSP) (Video Game)
This game bears no resemblance whatsoever to the Xbox 360 and Ps3 games of the same name. There is no circuit racing at all (although the menu system is very much like a simplified Pro-street). the game is very much inner city racing and still implements the same features as earlier nfs games eg. speed camera races, checkpoint, sprints and races against a rival at the end of each series. what it does feature at it's core is a solid racing experience with nice tap the ebrake drifty handling although very arcadey (think Juiced meets Midnight club). Theres no car selection or tuning this time as cars and tuning options are automatically obtained and installed as you progress, which might dissapoint some. Visuals are fine for the PSP, although car models are a little simplified. If you like arcade racing and want another mindless (old school) NfS fix this won't dissapoint, Just dont expect anything like Shift.
