TouchGen - Need for Speed gets stripped back to its arcade roots… is that a good thing?
I’ll get straight to the point… Yes it is a good thing! While Shift on iPhone was a solid racer, it lost its edge by vying for too much realism. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good realistic racer, like Real Racing and GT Academy But sometimes you just want to let rip on the road, throw out the rulebook and just have fun! I’ve played a lot of racing games over the last 10 years, not only on the iPhone, but on DS, PSP, Gamecube, PS2, Wii, 360 and PS3, and in that time I have yet to have more fun behind the wheel than I did with one game, and that was Burn Out 2.
