Dang!! I fully expected to see some pics and say, "Well, it looks like any other racer to me"... But this looks amazing. Very nice!

The effing Helmet cam looks great. Why hasn't this been implemented before?

My eyes are definitely peeled for this. Shacknews was calling them "bullshots" since they had hands on, and the game, while it looked good, they said EA added effects and touched up the screenshots.

But the gloves are off since EA called out GT. I love GT, I respect and understand what that series has to offer, and is my go to sim... but if this can be a better hybrid compared to the first one of sim (lets be honest, it wont be a true sim, with the added novelties and effects, it will still be hybrid) then it would be a fun alternative to play, for those who don't like the full on arcade experience like NFS or Burnout.

Quick question about Need for Speed Shift. Was the game any good? I've heard some really good things about it. I know this is for NFSS2 but, I couldn't find any info on it.

If there is please post the link. Thanks!

NFS Shift is insane good...one of the most intense racing experiences I've ever had on a console.
 
# 12 DirtyJerz32 @ 12/03/10 04:21 PM
Wow! That good? Can you use the DFGT wheel? I'll check out the demo.


Edit: Damn that was intense. I love the CPU driver AI. I may have to pick this up.

Let's wait how it really turns out. Everybody can hand out some photoshopped renderings. Codemasters does it every time and when the final game is realeased it always falls short (despite still looking good). I only believe a demo I see with my own eyes.

Gran Turismo should bring out the best in the developers for this game.

I agree. Racing games are my favorite. I don't care if they are Sim or Arcade as long as they are fun. Shift is some of the most intense racing I've played as well. Balls to the wall and a ton of fun. Very nice cars and tracks as well and one of the best cockpit views in the business. I never used to use the in car view until Shift came along, the game is at it's best when inside the car.

Forgot to add, also some great DLC for Shift as well.

Thanks JMD! I'll be picking this up today for the ps3.

I ownded shift and I couln't get into to it. But to be honest I didn't try to get into all that much because of my initial impression of the game. Maybe I will give it another shot.

I've been playing the demo for Shift on the 360, and I'm just kind of bewildered as to how I missed it. Maybe I I just wrote it off as another NFS game that failed to be interesting. Becasue I have pretty much hated all of the NFS game after Porsche Unleashed and High Stakes. And that is a long time.

I like arcade racers that straddle that line of sim. So PGR2 was the first racer I loved after High Stakes. I didn't really care for the feel of PGR 3 and 4. I've been playing Forza 3, which is kind of overkill for me.

But the Shift demo has hooked. I'd have it now, but it will be an easy Christmas gift from the family. That helmet cam is so perfect. As an arcade racer, I never really got into the cockpit views. They look great, but I don't care for the restricted view. But in Shift, it just felt right. The lack of a fixed view, so that the camera bounces with the turns and movement of the car is really immersive. And I find that it feels better than the overhead view. It is so well done.

Hot Pursuit's released got me thinking abut a racer, but it seems to have led me to Shift instead. I never really cared for the Burnout point and boost gameplay which has made its way into Hot Pursuit.

So the plan is now to get Shift and wait for Shift 2. Shift 2 may not be the game, as they are going to lean way more to the sim side. But the rumors are that Slightly Mad are working on a PGR 5 game for the Xbox, so that could be the Holy Grail I am waiting for.

That was pretty sweet. I love that the side view mirror came off. I was just love that helmet cam view and was glad to see you finally switched to it for the majority of the race.
