Features
Need for Speed SHIFT is an award-winning authentic racing game that combines the true driver's experience with real-world physics, pixel-perfect car models, and a wide range of authentic race tracks. Need for Speed SHIFT takes players in a different direction to create a simulation experience that replicates the true feeling of driving high-end performance cars.

True Driver's Experience – A variety of visual cues delivers the true driver's experience including a three-dimensional HUD that mimics driver head movement, inertia and G-forces. The depth of field also adjusts based on the speed of the car; so when the car is travelling at high speeds the perspective will shift to the distance putting the car/cockpit out of focus.

Driver Profile – What kind of driver are you? Driver profile tracks the player's evolution as a race driver from event to event. This system is made up of a driver's personality on the track, their success rate and any profile points and badges accrued all of which work together to create a tailor-made career and gameplay experience. Driver profile is pervasive throughout all modes: career and online.

Dynamic Crash Effect - When the player hits a static object or opponent car, the player will feel like they are 'taking damage'. A combination of visual and audio effects will leave the player disorientated and briefly disrupt the race.

Total Customization – Need for Speed SHIFT features a comprehensive customization option that lets the player tailor every aspect of the cars performance and styling. Go under the hood to upgrade and tune your vehicle to increase its performance. The visual customization system allows players to personalize both the exterior and trick out the interior to reflect their individual style and preferences.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent.

Pros: Meets or exceeds expectations. Great game.

Cons: May disappoint you if you're expecting something else.

Other Thoughts: Please note that this is a simulation racing game, not an arcade racing game. There are plenty of alternatives out there for that audience. This is for players looking for a bit more challenge and authenticity.

5 out of 5 eggsBest in he NFS Series!

Pros: Realistic graphics. Loads of fun to play although very challenging. As mentioned earlier you need "big boy" equipment to play this game and to appreciate all it has to offer. Don't listen to all those whiners trying to play this game on their mom's Wally-world system with onboard graphics, weak processors, and 1gb ram. Duh.. of course they have a bad experience with it.
I find the cars very controllable as long as you tweak your setup options properly.

Cons: None whatsoever.

Other Thoughts: My rig specs:
AMD Phenom II X560 Propus @ 3.3Ghz

16 gb G.Skill Ripjaw Series DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800)

Radeon HD 6750 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16

5 out of 5 eggsA fan of NFSS titles.

Pros: Just luv the NFSS series and will be expanding my collection as time goes on. Works great on Nvidia-based graphics system. Using pre-force feedback Logitech wheel and pedals, no issue.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: Fast processing/shipping, a most excellent special price when purchased...notified via price alert, never fails. THANK YOU, Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Game!

Pros: - Amazing cars
- Plenty of money awarded
- Handling is OK with a keyboard

Cons: - Graphics show the games age
- Some undone graphics

This was actually pretty interesting. When you are doing an endurance race, your car can get beat up. When the trunk door falls off, it reveals a jagged and texture less trunk interior. Not a pretty sight (reminds me of the 90s)

4 out of 5 eggsWorks Great on Opteron!

Pros: Graphics are pretty Awesome! Running on a single 2360SE Opty with 8GB DDR2667 ECC Reg memory, 2 x PNY GTX465's in SLI, 74GB Raptor, 1KW SR PC Power&Cooling P/S, Win 7 ULT x64 currently with a Logitech Driving Force Pro wheel/pedals - runs very smooth

Cons: Something about the graphics settings is very touchy - I'm
trying 3 x 24" viewsonic VX2433's and after loading I set the graphics to 5760 x 1080 x 32 x 8xAA and the adjustable settings to "high" - big mistake! after going through "hell" to get back to the settings, I dropped the AA to 2x and lowered the adjustable settings (details etc)
back to "med" Bingo, works great!

Other Thoughts: After I spend some more time with this game I'll write a follow-up review

1 out of 5 eggsBORING

Pros: None: EA better come up with something better is my kids won't even play it!

Cons: You spend all your time trying to control the cars, witch makes it hard to get too the next level in the.. Not to speak about how my time the game crashed or locked up! If they make a Need for Speed: Shift 2 don't waste your money!!!!

2 out of 5 eggsYuck boring

Pros: Great graphics. .....If you have a good video card and a fast processor that is.

Cons: I truly regret buying this game. Its like a simulator but an arcade too. And its very annoying. They should have either done arcade or simulator. Not both. It's very sloppily done. Car controls are a blend of arcade and sim. Which is BAD.
I'm never buying another NFS game ever. This game made me miss the Midnight Club series by Rockstar games. Now those were FUN.
Also, you can forget about net play. That's the WORST. You have to wait in a lobby until a player gets on to race. Which is rare depending on where you live. And theres no server. Its so lonely and just over all poorly done. And most racers out there don't even finish the race. If you're winning, they leave the connection. LAME. Lots of cheaters and dirty racers online too. Just a real boring game. The demo was better. This plays like Grand Turismo for PS2, only with worst control of your vehicle. And I hate GT games. Great graphics and sound but oh so annoying and boring. Avoid.

Other Thoughts: I bought this because I got bored of playing FPS games. Well..I miss my FPS games again thanks to this lop.
