Need for Speed: SHIFT 2 Unleashed

299 posts in this topic

Got this for the PS3.

 

First impressions.

 

Its very action oriented. If I were to analogize this to GT5 or Forza, Shift 2 is Welcome to the Jungle to GT5/Forza's Bourne trilogy. In your face, thrilling and visceral. The car handling is wonky and nowhere near the sophistication of GT5 or Forza, yet somehow, Shift 2 manages to be a fun game.

 

Multiplayer is a real clusterf**k. If you think the AI in the SP is overly aggressive, wait til you go up against the morons in MP. :bash:

I have neither seen 'Welcome to the Jungle' nor 'Bourne trilogy.' :mellow:

It stars Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and was later renamed to "The Runabout".

 

As for not watching the Bourne trilogy, you shame yourself.

@Homaga

No way I'm watching that video. :P

 

EDIT: @MT

Yes, I know Dwayne stars in that movie and I believe it was his first Hollywood flick. And Bourne series features many big names. But I haven't found time to watch those movies :P

OMG what a dirty game. I feel like having a bath after playing it.

 

:P

 

In all seriousness, I don't get what's so new about the helmet cam. It's exactly like it was in the first game. If anything, the novelty has worn off a bit. Handling is still sh*t. I can't believe people run around calling Shift the best PC sim.

I think there are community mods which made the first game appeal better as a sim

The Shift 2: Unleashed Speedhunters DLC will be released May 17 on the PSN, EA has announced.

The new digital expansion offers players a whole

new career path with new game modes, cars and

tracks. New career branches include Drag and

Standing mile, each offering nine new events where

players will only be able to use manual gear change. Drag judges the fastest time over a quarter

mile stretch, and Standing Mile judges the fastest

speed achieved over a mile stretch. The DLC will cost

$9.99 - but the release on PS3 is reliant on PSN
