    Series drift is too long and unnecessary driving is frustrating and some tracks are really claims too !

    Anyone here consider themselves a fast driver?...could you add me to autolog, I'm getting some strange times at various tracks, sometimes, some of the randoms in my list are faster even in slower cars.

    How has this game matured, I'm considering picking this up. I tried playing GRiD again, and while good...I just can't get into it. I am going thru the process of getting a ton of mods for the first Shift to see how well it bodes. This title seems to get somewhat favorable reviews, but seems 50-50 with the player base.

    I suppose from the little overall action this thread sees it's probably best to wait for something else. I enjoyed the heck outta the first Shift for months when it was released, it was my break from Borderlands. I am really thinking of picking this up tho atm.

    Wait for dirt 3 or play shift 2. Personally I think this game is ass and I really tried to like it. Basically the control are shit with a 360 gamepad and the visuals are far behind grid let alone dirt 2. Fail port racing.
    Kursah says thanks.

    Well at this point I can get it for around $25...but debating if it's worth that or not. I just wish we'd see a copy of GT or Forza hit PC's someday...the first Shift as I said before was pretty entertaining. Still working on unpacking my original Shift install...apparently it takes a while lol.

    I did enjoy Dirt 2 a ton, and I'm sure Dirt 3 will be a hoot. I just can't get myself into GRiD...I'll keep trying I suppose...enjoy what I have unless there are more positive replies that sway me. :D

    I have a love/hate relationship with this game, but I must say, it works superbly with my DFGT, that said, some of the cars sway and I can't seem to get rid of it:banghead:, but there's so many cars that drive well it barely matters.

    As I've said elsewhere, if you have a sim mentality and like to hotlap, buy the game and start sorting it, but don't buy it for either MP or SP.

    You may as well just buy GT Legends or GTR, GTR2, Race 07, Evo...

    I like shift 2 but if you want the most realistic driving experience and you don't care about sp/mp and just wanna run laps then one of the above titles will serve you well.


    Dirt 3 releases soon and it will be a winner for sure!

    I got bored of the game in 2 days, and loved the challenge Drifting gave me, be now I hate any drift races. I much rather wait for Dirt 3

    I have Race07/Evo/RaceON/WTCC/STCC/VOLVO the games+GRID, F1 2010 and Shift1.

    I did a 1000hrs on GTR Evo MP, but I'm bored with it and the poor GFX etc, not so with S2U....I think I'll squeeze 200 more hrs out of it.

    S2U makes me feel like I'm driving race cars because of the quality of the GFX{cockpit mode} and the way the car drives and feels thru the wheel and pedals{simulated}.

    S2U also has the best sound of any racing game I've ever played.

    It's quite hard with the keyboard LOL. "Careful turning" for me means pressing either left or right multiple times in quick succession LOL

    Well my friend, you can experience some level of perfection with a decent wheel like a DFGT, or better yet with a G27.
    DFGT is a great wheel at a low price, and the pedals work extremely well, however, wheels like G27 and anything with a Clubsport pedal will be faster as they're more precise, particularly on the brakes.

    The only complaint I have with the game is not even related to the game, but drivers. Negative Crossfire scaling still, months after release = AMD FAIL!!!
