NFS Shift vs. Shift 2: Unleashed



Hey everyone! It has been a really busy month and I haven't paid any attention to my blog. Sad, because I've lost some followers too. Altrought I haven't touched my blog in weeks, I was still trying out some new, fresh games on PC like Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Shift 2: Unleashed and Crysis 2.
Anyway, I finnaly decided to upload a new video and I had an idea about Shift and Shift 2 comparison. Playing Shift 2 itself, I didn't find it interesting at all. It's almost the same as the first game, but only with worse controls, interface and graphics. In the video, Shift 2 looks nice, because all the low resolution textures are greatly zoomed out, but in the game they look ugly. The game itself looks crap and I was expecting so much more from it. I was hoping for more simulation style of gameplay, but instead we got almost the same game experience, only worse. The only thing they added to this "new" game is a view from drivers helmet. Some people find it fun and realistic, but for - annoying. So all in all Shift 2 feels like a game that could have used a few more months of development. It feels bad, it plays bad and it needs some more work.

  5. Judging by the video, I would say, that Shift 2 looks more realistic, which is a + in my book, BUT, I didn't see any in-car shadows. wtf?
    Anyway, I'm more of a arcade driving game guy, so Shift doesn't really interest me as a game.

  6. Shift 2 is more precise and more difficult for me, I like it.

  14. Always thought grid was far superior to shift. Never played them though so I guess that's that.
