EA's Need For Speed: SHIFT has topped the UK all format software chart in its first week of release, knocking Guitar Hero 5 off the number one spot.
Great game, one of the best ones played in a while. Not so difficult as well and you can customise to the assists to your liking. In Grid in some races i just cudnt' manage to win even if i tried n number of times but in this one if you persist long enough you will eventualy find a way to win the race. Graphics are great as well and the incar cam with shaky vision and hands showing that you're driving an actual car with proper movement unlike the GT5 arms which are added as an afterthought like damaage and look like they are holding the steering wheel of a hovercraft on an ice rink absolutly no realim. edit: so i hit a nerve on some sony fanboy for the disagree(s)? edit#2: Yes, i loved the nfs till the first most wanted on the pc. You know i remeber upgrading my 486Dx pc to a pentium 90Mhz just so i could play the NFS. Was amazed at the tyre smokes and skid marks back in early 90s. IN their later iterations they got more into that Fast and furious type of gameplay. This one is although not open road racing but still very well done. Now all they need to do is to take this formula to open roads, with cops, helis and road traps and speed cams ;)
Yeah, I agree sak - I'm impressed by Shift, defintiely a step in the right direction for the NFS series.
Really like the game as well but it is not a true sim but more like a harder to control PGR than a Forza or GT rival.But it's still a fun game to play and will keep racing fans happy till either Forza or GT comes out.
Well deserving the position to be honest.
Nice! I remember seeing the videos for this game on IncGamers and got really excited, I guess it is good enough too!
Saw a good advert for this on TV over the weekend, I'm sure that has something to do with it :)
great game and well deserved at number 1 spot. Is going to keep me occupied till GT5!
I got it last week, and had a blast over the weekend. Drives great, looks great, feels great. Not sure if its the best "NFS", it became just a racing game now. But as such, its the best I've played in a while. I also like the presentation, quick cues, intermediate sequences, menu and how you interact. Nicely done.
This is sure to compete with Flopza
Is this game gone back to its arcade roots (like underground 1/2 or most wanted) or is it trying to be a realistic racing clone...
