SFX-360: Shift 2: Unleashed (Xbox 360) Review


Well it is not often that I will say that a racing game has gotten the best of me. I have played various titles over my time such as Gran Turismo, Forza, Dirt and even previous Need For Speed titles but there is just something about Shift 2 that makes my head spin…But in a good way.

Now when you pick up this game you think it is like other racing games where you just drive fast and hug corners while racing against what seems to be drivers with their learning permits, but in Shift 2 I found that this game takes skills, if you are unaware of the basics of how a car handles through corners, at top speeds and finally if you nudge someone on the back bumper….you will find yourself restarting over and over. I found myself getting my ass handled to me for driving like an idiot, so you have to make your driving count in this game or you will find yourself getting aggregated in no time.

The story is too old to be commented.
