Game Description

Put your brain in the body of a real-life racer. Now drive. That's the simple premise behind Need for Speed: Shift, which gets you behind the wheel like never before. Your personality seeps into the game through your driver profile. The game tailors your persona based on your driving style: aggressive or precise. Your style impacts your career trajectory, your online matchups, and even how you unlock car doors. You'll experience all the emotions that drift through a driver's head as you balance the skill needed to control your machine with the fearlessness needed to forget that any crash could be your last!
