This review is from: Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed (Xbox 360) (Console)
This game is a complete failure. The driving is absolutely horrible. The cars understeer and oversteer all over the place. They seem to rotate on the screen in front of you like a corkscrew. The steering feels like a switch, completely unresponsive to small movements and then suddenly going mental. The cars feel heavy and weird. I've played dozens of racing games on consoles and this has by far the strangest handling. It would be a lot easier to play if it was a simulation or a proper arcade style game. I'm not sure which they were aiming for but they've missed both. The last three games I played before this were Driver San Francisco, LA Noire and Halo ODST. I think all of these games have superior vehicle simulation and yet not one of them is a racing game! I was actually quite disappointed with the driving in LA Noire, but it's a lot better than Shift!)
In summary, this is the worst racing game I have ever played and I will be trading it in as soon as possible.
A message to EA: If this is the best you can do then you don't deserve the exclusive licence on Porsches in video games. Go and tell Porsche you're hopeless and let a proper racing game company have access to them instead.

What a shame the excellent Forza series had to lose out on a Porsche licence due to these hopeless monkeys.
