M2G Writes: EA has dated Need for Speed: Shift Unleashed 2 for March 25 in Europe, with a US release following on March 29.
Damn, Hot Pursuit was just released 2 months ago.
Wow this is coming REALLY soon. :o
Yawn How is this different to the first Need For Speed: Shift, it looks exactly the same. Better games to get in March.
The game has more cars, more tracks, more multiplayer modes, improved physics. that's all you can do with a racing game beyond superficial things like graphics. How much is GT4 diff front GT3 diff from GT5. More cars, more multiplayer modes, improved physics. What do you want? boats and planes in racing games? I hope you complain about 'differentness' in all your purchases. Halo reach was similar to halo 3. KZ3 is similar to KZ2. God of war is similar throughout the whole series. SMG1 is similar to SMG2. Maybe you should just play one game in a series and never play any others. Especially in a genre like realistic racing games that has FAR less variables than something like platforming. The core game of a racing sim is gonna have cars racing on tracks and that's it. There are going to be stuff like photo mode and things for a small diversion, but the meat of the game will be the same.
Wow..that's one week before MotoStorm.. PS3 releases a Racing Sim in Gran Turismo 5 and EA releases an Arcade Racer in Need for Speed: HP PS3 set to release an Arcade Racer in Motostorm: Apocalypse and releases A racing simulation in Shift 2:Unleashed.. The plot thickens
so they make a come back with hot pursuit then try and cash in with this game and it will proberly be trash like the first 1
The first Shift was the first sim style racing game I've enjoyed in a long time. I look forward to this one.
Hope they fix the physics this time. The 1st one had unrealistic levels of oversteer. Will most likely get this day one as i do with all realistic racers though.
My Jaw Hit The Floor When I Seen This Date, Probs Wont Pick This Up Day 1 Now As NFS:HP Has My Racing Needs Covered For A While
"Most Realistic Racer Ever" PC: rFactor & iRacing! Console: Gran Turismo 5! Still missing the most prestigious car company ever! Ferrari! Orgoglio dela Ferrari!
PS3 was missing Ferrari but PC and Xbox both got it in Dlc actually.
Gran Turismo 5 may have the most realistic DRIVING, the racing itself sucks and is quite boring. Thats where Shift 2 comes in, it may not be a sim and may not handle realistically, but it manages to capture the essence of the dangers and thrills of RACING
I loved the original Shift! Can't wait for this one.
Can't say I loved the first one but I did really like it, I loved the track selection in it though, far more than the tracks in GT5, so this will be a day one for me.
Yup, they need to sort out the handling model but the actual racing and car and track selection has got GT5 beat already. I'm bored of GT already, such a grind...
could someone explain me why this game is coming just 5 months after hot persuit was released?? what's happening to the industry??!! from dlc's you have to pay for and already in the disc, to yearly franchises of great games, that with time tend to become just more of the same and completely pointless, hot persuit was great, but 5 months after it another nfs?? this seriously has to be a joke...
