Videogameszone published its preview for Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed. Is it better than Gran Turismo 5?
Played Need for speed shift in eyefinity, i can say it was an awesome experience. Cant say about GT5 since i dont own a PS3. This looks fun will probably pick up on a discount.
Wow are people disagreeing with you? I mean really you didn't even say anything negative about there beloved GT5
i disagreed with the both of you.. just so you know
I disagreed, you want to know why? I disagreed because, I too, played Need for Speed shift in eyefinity, however I did not think it was an awesome experience. Therefore, I disagree with his comment. Example- Onion- I like to drink Molson beer because it tastes good. JaimeRoma- I disagree, I think Molson beer is mediocre at best.
i 'agreed' with you because JaimeRoma is right!
Maybe they disagreed cus they dont like NFS shift that much? Y do it always have to be a fanboy war with u kids lol BTW, I liked shift (PC)
I liked Shift also, I was a great game. I have also put in some time with GT5 and can say its a way better simulator. I am excited to see what Shift 2 brings or improves upon.
Maybe NFS is a better arcade racer, but not a better driving simulator, which is what GT5 is.
I agree, Shift was awesome, but so is GT5, just in another way. With Shift its fun to race fast and smash some things up here and there without being penalized. With GT5 I get that sense of accomplishment after every race, especially the hard ones. With Shift I bought a Corvette, maxed it out and that pretty much beat the game for me. I already used more cars in GT5 and can see myself going for that trophy for 1,000 cars haha.
Agree completely. As for comparing a simulator with arcade gameplay does this now mean Ace Comabt will be compared to Flight Simulator? I dare say NFS is better than GT5 for those who prefer arcade style play.
Sure, in some ways more than others. GT5 and Shift both have their own strengths and weaknesses.
HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM..... No ??
Is shift 2 even playable for them to state such a retarded question like this?
Screwdrivers... better than hammers? I think my analogy nails it.
what happened to the monkey-wrench?
So first VideoGamesZone trolls Alan Wake, and now they are trolling Gran Turismo 5? I say it's about time we blacklist this site for good.
I already did. Anyway, uninteresting site. We're not losing anything.
I just with we had custom filters so they wouldn't show up at all.
¿Since when Shift is a basic simulator?
This reminds me of the alan wake vs heavy rain comparisons. They make no sense at all, they aren't even the same type of game and no matter how much EA wants to believe their own words, shift 2 isn't a simulator it's an arcade racer and both are AWESOME.. well, shift had an awesome sense of speed n was a lot of fun so I'm assuming they will just improve on it... one thing I hate is all the guassian blurring / blooming everywhere else though. if you're a car fan or a racer fan and like different types of experiences I don't see why you can't have both :( I love me some car collecting and proper simulation but also like the arcadey high energetic feeling from the NFS games from time to time
Being a more realistic driving simulator than GT5? After all, this is where the articles are generally heading! No offense to Need for Speed fans, cause it's a good racer, but both GT & NFS are totally different driving experiences. Too many big wooden spoons in operation, all adding to the party mix for hits I think
One's an arcade racer the other is a simulator, its like comparing X-Plane with Hawx 2
Rather hav somethin fun for me. So i'll go with Need for Speed:Shift 2. Nothin against GT5 for people who like Sim
That's a fair enough comment! I think GT prob appeals more to the 30+ age group in all honesty. I'm not saying you are young, just a guess!
GT appeals more to the group that loves cars, age has nothing to do with it as there are people who are 16 and love cars. Also the group that like driving...
I cannot deny it will be a very good game, but not better than GT5, not even Shift 3 I think.
I quite enjoyed Shift for a few hours, but I found there was a false characteristic to the physics I could feel in every car. I'm not saying that put me off, but it's been on the shelf with no urge to play again :/ But GT5 is another matter, sublime handling (which is all I really care about) and an addictiveness in seeing what the next win will unlock. I love RPG's as well - GT5 is a racing RPG to me. Who says you don't need 1000 cars.
i played Need For Speed Shift and it was crap. I earned a trophy then sold the game. This game is nowhere near racing simulator class. I bought Need for Speed Shift knowing it is just an arcade game. I was right, it was a crappiest arcade game. Glad i got Need for Speed Hot Pursuit. That was the best arcade game i played so far.
i love how intense the turbos sound on shift that it looks like youve taken a blow to the head when you crash its fantastic fun it isnt however a racing sim
A poor racing game that doesn't shift as well as it is sh!t. Anyways last Need For Speed game that made me what to buy it is the one that is out now, this one is about as bad as the last one.
I've heard this before bayonetta better than GoWIII prototype better than infamous Halo 3 better than Killzone 2 so it's basically asking is any game out there better than PS3 exclusives, and the answer is always the same: it is or it isn't depending on what you like.
