While it certainly is exciting to Ferrari return to Need For Speed, it seems a bit late to put the manufacturer in Shift. Anyone still play it? 800 points is a bit expensive as well. Depends on the amount of cars I guess. I assume it won't be just 6 cars, but 15-20 cars should suffice. You get 10 cars in Forza 3 for 400 points. Car models look great otherwise, except for the horrible aliasing. Can't wait to hear the car sounds like though! NFS always made good on that.

With a broken online mode and a useless time trial mode, i sold this game.. damn shame because this is looking good, but i wont be playing the game until they fix their flaws first.

The gameplay is shift was so underwhelming that I can't see myself ever going back to this game after how amazing Forza 3 turned out. The only racer that has any chance of stealing a bit of my attention away from Forza would be GT or if they ever make a decent rally game.

It's a shame too, b/c shift did a lot of clever things in terms of presentation, the actual racing however was pretty broken. Physics and framerate was a joke.

Re-downloaded the shift demo this morning just to see if it was as bad as I previously thought. Deleted within 2 mins. THe physics are really bad, that's for sure. Though I've spent ages on Forza 3 with a wheel since I owned shift, as Nietzsche said, it will take a great game to beat it.

GT5 has a chance, I'm looking forward to it regardless. But it's a shame that shift wasn't all there. Perhaps the sequel will improve.

Hopefully D.I.C.E. will bring back the Rallisport Challenge series.

No. But the sad thing is that people still buy them before they dont play them...

I never though I say it but I had more fun with Shift than Forza2. Forza 2 was beauty, drives well better than Drift, but I just got bored after few days, it feels so repetitive with the events structure, little feeling of progression. I felt much more rewarded winning races in Drift even though it took a while to get used to the car poor physics. Reality is good, but if stuff gets too real it just becomes boring, at least for me...

Shift could have been a new wipeout game. The effects are stupidly over the top. everytime u touch the sides of the track, the colors disappers i mean... wtf?! Arcade/actionracing is fine but idd rather have forza then shit... i mean shift.

I also did not buy shift but this DLC seems to be only for 360 or so far anyways ? But I have to admit the cars, tracks, cockpit view ... Graphics and also sounds are really impressive.

    Moonwalker and it's just generally a wise thing to keep your expectations realistic. But I still wonder what he means. I'm looking forward to E3 anyway. Hope Bethesda will reveal their new game. BGS that is. (0 minute ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @GriftGFX: Yep but I wonder if he means sales wise or games. Because 360 wins that hands down. He also says he hopes everyone will be blown away by Scorpio. Not sure what would blow me away about it (1 minute ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Still a better investment than a launch Scorpio, I guess :D (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX Yes. Buy another one of the things you hate, to play games that are widely available on other platforms. Do it. You're a smart cookie. (1 Hour ago)
