Windows 7: Shift 2

Shift 2

My advice....Don't bother!

Managed to get it a day early , what a let down.

To me the graphics seem even inferior to the original Shift.

Car handling not impressive.

No wow factor what so ever.

Took ages to install , like 30 mins on my ssd.

No online laptime leaderboards which is a must for me.

Just seems like another one of them games , loads of hype and failed to deliver big time!

Will be putting my copy up for sale in the morning sadly.


When will someone release a game that lives up to the hype? Seem to be getting fewer and fewer.

Paul.

Wait for the first patch or two. The game has potential but as with the original Shift it was released un-finished. I don't know whether to blame EA or the developers (SMS) but the game needs work.

It is.

I've seen quite a few people say that, but I don't see it. In fact I think in some areas it seems nicer, the rest looks the same. Then again it has been a while since I played Shift, so memory may be fuzzy.

Some of the new "effects" however are quite annoying.

(So too is that drifter guy who keeps appearing in the cut-scenes)

Sadly, no it's not. That's the biggest letdown of the game. If they nailed that, then everything else could almost be forgiven.

I use a MS 360 wheel and it's an absolute PITA to configure. Even after tweaking the wheel and adjusting car setups, it still just doesn't 'feel' right. More importantly, it's just not fun.

Well, there is a wow factor. Unfortunately it's 'wow, why did they waste another oppurtunity to make an enjoyable game'.

With the huge cost of game development these days, they have to hype them in order to re-coup costs. It's just the way things are now.

Hype to excite, make money from pre-orders and the early release sales, then hope to roll a turd in glitter with patches to attempt to keep after review sales up

The only best NFS was the Porche Unleashed. I loved the NFS-III HP and Underground 1 too and Most Wanted was ok too but later NFS's are plain boring.

Shift-E, Shift-L not working sticky keys off
My old keyboard was refusing to re-initialize after the peripheral reset during win 7 boot. It's about a decade old, so I just assumed it was dead. I replaced it with my wireless keyboard I use for working on computers, Ms laser 8000. My keyboard now initializes fine, but shift L and Shift E are...

NFS Shift or Shift 2 or something else?
I am looking for racing game, more of a SIM for PC. Graphics need to be good. Confused between Shift 1 and 2. Or is there some other which I should look into other than these 2? BTW, will not be using Wheel but gamepad or less likely keyboard.

NFS Shift Problems
I was playing NFS: Shift and then suddenly, without doing anything (this happens all the time with it on my PC), it'll freeze at the first red light. I installed XP 64 on another HDD, and that didn't have a problem, and it was much faster too. Any ideas?
