Weak

Disappointing...

This game is a very poor man's Gran Turismo 5. The controls feel quite rigid, the car modification settings are stripped down and ripped right out of GT5 but affect the driving significantly less. It has some of the same courses and vehicles as Turismo but the look and feel of these vehicles and courses pale in comparison to Tursimo. Now I recognize that it's not fair to compare a game with a huge budget and epic development period like Turismo to smaller titles like SU2 but it sticks out blatantly. If you're going to rip another game off at least do it right. Don't waste your money or Q space on this game, you're much better off with Turismo as a driving simulator or split/second and hot pursuit for an arcade racer. This game attempts to be both and falls short all around.

There's nothing in Shift 2 that GT5 doesn't do better.NFS Shift was better.Not even worth a rent.

Unrealistic in every single aspect of handling. Nitrous has no affect on acceleration. Whoever designed this game knows nothing about how cars handle. Worthless. I'm so glad it was free.
