Need for Speed: Shift 2 Unleashed Review (Strategy Informer)

From "For many racing game enthusiasts, each of the major brands are defined by their feel, rather than the swathes of licensed content that pepper press releases and official trailers.

I gave this game a try and after the first couple of races I turned it off. Its just as horrible as the first

where did I mention GT5? I was even a bit disappointed with that game.
the cars in Shift 2 handle like they're driving on ice and the graphics are crap

I have to say I'm loving it,I got GT5 and its a great game but I don't feel any fun factor from it as where this on the PC not only looks great but is alot of fun imo.
