Rated 4 out of 5 by from Shift 2 This game was reviewed critically by fans ( especially on Gamestop ) but this game actually isn't bad. Cars sound and drive nicely. There are a variety if different tracks. However, there are two vital flaws in the game. Number 1 : No one plays online. Only single digits of people play and that is not for very long. S Number 2 : The dlc for this game should come with it. EA wants you to pay for drag racing and older cars. Really?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from TOTALLY worth a look at if your big into cars Realistic looks, dramatic feel, amped up soundtrack, and filled to the grill with adrenaline, this game makes you feel less like a race car driver and more like a pilot. It's like Need For Speed mixed with the dramatic effects of the latest Medal of Honor title (Makes sense mainly due to the fact that there both EA titles). Keep in mind, it's very hardcore (Even for a guy like me that's addicted to simulators like Gran Turismo and the original Shift) and requires practice to get it right. But if and when you tame this Gnarly game, it's got some serious pay off with addicting effects, gut wrenching speed, superb SoundFX, and Gorgeous Looking cars. And, with the addition of DLC like cars and tracks straight out of the past (1960-70's), and Drag Racing/ Standing Mile events, this game is like a lullaby to any and all Automotive Enthusiasts. Summary: Pro's - Intense Gameplay, Stellar Soundtrack, Mind-Bending visuals Con's - Learning curve, at times frustrating, kind of short

Rated 3 out of 5 by from SHIFT 2..What could have been.. [what could have been] a Fantastic 'SIM/Arcade" Hybrid,"SHIFT 2" missed the mark big time,first off~ just let me fill in a few of the people who have Called "SHIFT 2" a "SIM"..it is NOT a "SIM" ..not even close guys,if you want a "SIM" you will have to go the 'PC" route,where you can race titles like 'IRacing" and "RFactor",that are genuine 'SIMS",simply put there are NO Real "Sims" on ANY "Console"..even titles like "GT5" and "FORZA 4" are more on the "ARCADE" side of the fence ..you can yell & scream all you want,but it is the honest truth,and this is coming from a die Hard "GT5" fan & a guy who loves Console racing,I love racing period,whether it is on "PC" and a 100 percent pure "SIM" like 'IRacing" or a total 'ARCADE" racer like "GRID"..But you need to have decent "Physics" and thats where "SHIFT 2" Fails miserably,I totally enjoyed the first "SHIFT" [even with it's sketchy physics] and was REALLY looking forward to "SHIFT 2" where the developers claimed to have fixed all the sketchy floaty physics ..simply put ,they LIED! and what "SHIFT 2" ended up being was a Beautiful Looking MESS of a racer..some of the lower end cars drive fine..but when you step up to the higher end stuff,thats when things go from bad to worse,and they are for the most part Garbage, just to let you know I have been racing "PC" & Console for over 10 years,and own top end "SIM" racing gear and wheel & pedal sets,so I am not a rookie @ this, what really is just too bad is that "SHIFT 2" COULD have been epic,and on "PC" with "Modding" it is not a bad title at all,but on Console? it sucks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good Racing Game, But... The game is great... It's actually one of the best I have played, the problem comes in with difficulty... Even having the game on Easy, it's still pretty hard sometimes to grab a win. Been several times that I had no choice but to settle for 2nd or 3rd.. It's also probably one of the most ("Skill Required") games i have played. Taking corners in this game is not as easy as it would seem. You really have to work that throttle & brake in order to stay on the road. Also, if you upgrade your car, all the cars you will be racing will have the SAME UPGRADES! So keep that in mind when your going to go splurge all that cash. Other than that, this is a great racing game. The helmet cam makes it look as if your in the helmet, like YOUR THE DRIVER! couple that with the ability to completely remove the HUD (Heads Up Display) & you have yourself a VERY realistic driving experience... Only way to make it more realistic would be to actually go driving. Just don't go out driving like that, leave that to the Pros...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun and Intense I think Shift 2 is a great sim/arcade racer. Each race feels more intense than the last and the AI actually give you a challange. The graphics look great from the interiors and exteriors of the cars to the debris blowing across the track. I think this game has one of the best feeling drift modes as well. The cars in this game also sound great. There is also tons of tracks and the career mode is pretty lengthy. If you pick up this game grab a $20 dollar psn card and buy the "Legends" and "Speedhunters" dlc packs. Between them both you get about 20 cars or so, 5 tracks, 1/4 mile and Standing mile drag. I highly recommend at least trying this game out its very fun and will have you on the edge of your seat.
