Need for Speed: Shift Discussion
Trainer Tools and Resources
If you do not compare it to Grid (hard to do) it is a good race game, with some points being better then Grid (****pit, sence of speed, i like the adding of race tires, rollcage, and upgrading youre ****pit from street to trackday to full on race)
I ignore grid, ignore the SUCKY drift bit (should be called short distance power slides) and together with Dirt 2 on my xbox will keep me entertained till Forza 3 gets here.

Let me tell you why guys are here blaberring and saying
"yay SHIFT rules GRID sucks" Its only because SHIFT is a
"Need For Speed" Series and a "EA Games" production.
If it was for some "Valve", "iD" you guys out there who support SHIFT won't be the same
Dude..GRID has got 7 awards for its handling in Drift from different spots though B.Paradise bet it at GOTY-Racing awards.
If one is weak in GRID drift then occasionally people say what u just said "TERRIBLE" , "LAME" or "CRAP" .

Where are those awards ? As far as i can see even IGN rates Shift better. And not for the EA Logo, more for the handling (except drifting, that sucks ass). Besides all those possibilities in customizing. Now what can you customize in drift or tune ? It doesn't have to be the most real game ever to be fun or "feel" realistic. The tyre physics were made by the guy who was responsible for Richard Burns Rally. Compared to that drift sucks like a million asses.
But its okay, you're right, we have our peace and nfs sucks sooo bad.
I never said NFS sucks obviously it rocks.
But first its freaking clear to me that your a lame drifter
& about the awards try flashbacking GOTY of last year.
When it comes to customization i agree GRID sucks.
And worst thing about NFS in customization is they got the same vinyls over and over again.
The one in PRO STREET repeats in UNDERCOVER & SHIFT..
Some vinyls of NFS UNDERGROUND 2 are still there in SHIFT. lmao
Its a surprise that you see the originality through
Let see if SHIFT can indeed make her way to GOTY.
Yes i may be a lame drifter, but I mean i can drift in grid, it just doesn't feel like anything car-ish. The cars there drive like karts with a trigger happy tail. Its just weird. With what car have you ever tried drifting in real life on a track to find THAT a great physics model ?
Try driving Richard Burns Rally, THAT is physics and real skill. Or try LFS. Don't try to catch me with GRID and great driving physics. It's just way too arcadish. Even more than the current NFS. Grid to me seems in many likes even more arcedey than Shift this time. And i did NOT like any of its predecessors. I think the last NFS i really thought was cool is High Stakes.
And about the customization, well i don't do vinyls. I'm more a hardware tuner. Don't need a fancy flashy car, it has to drive well, thats what matters. At least you have the choice here to do it while grid doesn't give you any options.
