Need For Speed: SHIFT

Need For Speed Shift is the latest iteration in the Need For Speed series, it's a complete overhaul trying to win its fans back. If you don't already know, this game is meant to be a sim (Simulation) so you'll be racing on tracks not streets. Well the good news is that it isn't doing a terrible job at it. The games visuals are beautiful and the RPG (Role-Playing Game) like gameplay truly make this a fun game. You get rewarded for pretty much anything you do. You can then use what you've earned to upgrade your car, unlock more races, better cars, etc. This gameplay really drives you to keep on playing, trying to get further and further.
Another great thing is how the game can be completely tuned to your needs, you can adjust the settings to what ever you'd like, so amateurs and pros alike will find their place. As for what the game is about, racing of course, it does a great job, there are little gameplay elements here and there that give you that feeling of realism that its aiming for. For example when you crash the screen gets blurry and shakes, this along with the games cockpit view, is simply amazing. Though the game has a nice selection of cars you'll find yourself bypassing most of them just to get the best car in the class leaving you without really having any need for all the other cars. It does have online play which is fun but somewhat limited. In the end this is definitely a step in the right direction for the series.
