Need for Speed Shift Review

Need for Speed Shift is a glorious return to greatness (and even excellence) for EA's seminal racing franchise. Slightly Mad Studios has delivered a driving experience that, while not completely accurate in terms of its simulation aspects, is practically dead-on in terms of what it's like to race around some of the world's best racing circuits. The career mode could (and should) have been a little better, but the act of driving is basically phenomenal.

IGN Ratings for Need for Speed Shift (X360)
Rating Description
out of 10
8.5 Presentation
Minimal but still heart-pumping.
8.5 Graphics
Generally stellar visuals with a tad bit of blurriness here and there from mip-mapping issues.
9.5 Sound
Brilliantly executed in pretty much every respect.
9.0 Gameplay
The driving experience is incredible, and the controls are practically perfect for this approach. But, the career mode is lacking.
7.5 Lasting Appeal
Lots of events to partake in, but the career mode won't keep you racing for hundreds of hours like some of the competition. The online is very fun, but minimal in options.
(out of 10 / not an average)
