As I listened in a bit closer, his complaints were that the title was not a Need for Speed game.

But they probably gained simulation fans...

I quit NFS games long time ago... i bought Shift because it promised sim style gameplay.

I wouldnt say it's the most realistic sim, but it's fun enough.

they didn't gain very many simulation fans most are waiting for GT5 or Forza 3. All I hear about the game is the horrible way the cars control and feel on track. :/
