"Need for Speed: Shift is more of an experiment than anything else: the first racing game from EA on the iPad. And it succeeds, greatly in fact, save for a few easy in-game hacks. They built a simple, intuitive game and it’s one of the first actually enjoyable portable racing games that have come out in years. At $15, we’re hard pressed to simply announce it an excellent buy, but a game this good would otherwise be $30-$40 on today’s other portable consoles, so realistically this is a great deal."
