EA some how made the franchise worse. It feels like driving on ice and the helmet came was disorienting. High hopes shattered. Back to NFS world its a lot better then this and you can start for free.

While it is a cool game and somewhat interested the handling SUCKS and is extremely loose...basically if youre trying to play it with a controller you will get to maybe level 5 events and be unable to keep your car on the track in most races, it is probably a lot better with a steering wheel but I'm definitely disappointed, I did not have this much trouble with the original SHIFT. Nothing really mind-blowing either, graphics are very good, sound is amazing, but controlling the cars blows and makes the experience more frustrating than fun.

Like others have said, the controls are floaty and almost unrespponsive at times. Its like a cross of sim and arcade but it does them both bad.

Graphics are ok, nothing special. If you liked how cars looked in Forza 3 or GT5 then be prepared to be REALLY dissapointed. Shift 1 wasnt that good but this improves from it but IMO its still just a OK racer.

If you want Sim go play Forza or GT, if you wan arcade go play NFS Hot Pursuit. Shift 2 tries to do both and comes up short.
