PlayDevil has posted an Xbox 360 review of EA's latest NFS update, "Need For Speed: SHIFT".
Here's a snip:
"Shift or Sh*t?
The Need For Speed (NFS) series has been in the doldrums for a few years- will this new title be a successful SHIFT in the right direction, or does the series stay rooted in reverse for a fourth consecutive year?
Carbon started the downfall, ProStreet was ill-advised rubbish, and Undercover was a poor man's rip-off of Most Wanted,, but not as good, despite it being the same developers and with more experience on the hardware. Now, with a new internal development team, with experience on the GTR series, can the series survive yet another shift in direction towards a racing simulation?
Clearly EA have been envious of the success of Dirt and GRID, and gone for a similar approach- have they pulled it off?"
