PSX Extreme: Need for Speed: SHIFT Preview

PSX Extreme writes: "I've long been a die-hard Need for Speed fan. I won't bore you with the details, but I will say this: I've been following the series since the very first game debuted with the enhanced PC port Need for Speed: Special Edition. It's been well over a decade since the arrival of the franchise, and it has remained one of my favorites, despite some of its lows. Even though Black Box released a technically flawed product with NFS: Undercover, they rectified the situation by issuing a patch in February that fixed the game's biggest flaws and brought out the fun. This, in turn, is a strategy of EA's that actually involves and makes space for NFS: SHIFT. Instead of churning out another arcade-like racer, EA will instead keep the updates for Undercover flowing which fills the criteria of arcade-racer. For an even more accessible game that fulfills the mainstream criteria, there is the Nintendo Wii's Need for Speed: NITRO. And finally, to fulfill the criteria of the simulator, there is Need for Speed: SHIFT."

i just saw the trailer for this game and it looks nice. however, i will have to rent it or play a demo to make my final decision.

I must say if this turns out to be Race Pro + NFS I will be stoked! GRiD really let me down in the physics department and waiting for GT5 is so painful. Hopefully Shift will prove to be a quality title.

if its like grid then ill get it, is race pro good was thinking of getn a 360 for it

well if you liked GRiD then you will hate Race Pro. It is a very challenging game and is also only to be played with a wheel. There is no point in getting a 360 just for Race Pro (its good but not great. A solid B). Forza 3 pay prove to more to your tastes as it will be more similar to GRiD. Personally GT5 is what I am waiting for... man its hard.
