    Thinking back, they have been doing two different styles of NFS series. "Pro-semi-simulation" and "chase-cops-arcade". Carbon - ProStreet - Undercover - Shift - Hot Pursuit - Shift 2.

    The next one could be Undercover 2 by Black Box (don't know if this is official)

    Shift has been developed to give the effect of you driving the car, not just car physics. The first time I tested Shift demo, I was hooked. The "feel" was the strongest ever, even if the physics lacked in lot of places. Hopefully they've fixed them a lot.

    (Maybe one of the annoying ones would be the lack of steering in reverse, but I have seen no complaints on it anywhere! A fact is that a car will turn much faster when driving in reverse. Nevertheless in Shift, the car just wont turn in reverse as it should. That gives a real headache when trying to recover from spinning or such.)

    The reason I haven't played much is that I don't see the need for spending a fortune buying a higher end steering wheel for just entertainment purposes.

    Shift 2 - Worth Playing?

    I was looking at Shift 2 and wondering if anyone has tried it. If so is it any good and do you have good customizing on the car's tuneup abilities. Amazon has it for $47.99 with a $15 gift card. It was released today.
    Minimum specs seem to be rather low.

    Thanks for everyone's input

    I would wait on this one to see what users say about it. Go to their forum and read any reactions to the game.
    Edit: Found this thread

    I ponder on just one question? Why is there no demo?

    True on the demo, also EA would be sure to charge "full price" for a good game. It just seems odd that it's that low and from your link peoples comments it does not look like it's worth it. Maybe after a few patches and reviews I will reconsider.

    Thanks EastCoastHandle

    I've checked out a few forums and IMO I would hold off on this game. Did you see the comparison pics? Wow, just wow...:shadedshu

    Game looks like crap IMO after just giving it a decent play thru, time to put the nail in the NFS coffin.
