I actually think that the presentation of Shift is very nice. The trailer and the effects keep your attention. It's a nice change instead of no transition regular racing clips.

ugh the real game looks great but whoever made this video needs a new profession, how many more racing scenes could have been cut short by a black screen.

Looks ok, seem to be going to fast for the speed they doing and the player seems to be just overtaking the AI as if they all got flat tires lol. Looks a bit like GRID and thats not a bad thing.

As long as it hazz real engine sound then the graphic kan be good doesn't have too be greatest it's the engine sound that's make you feel like you are sitting in the car and driving,plus the cockpit view at the same time. I love engine sounds from cars and i know how they suppost to sound especialy rally race cars and formula 1 because i love cars. That's my opinion guys.

if ea truly wants to take the NFS franchise and move it in to the sim class racers they need to have damage. when you look at the mane compaction for sim racers they all have realistic damage to a point and that is what a sim is all about after all making every thing as real as posable

I dont care if it looks like grid, because it is more realistic, you feel you are in the pilot's seat and you think those are your arms. And the game would be more interesting if we play it using a steering wheel pad (i think that is the name for that accesory).

Looks great, but not a Need For Speed game. They had the right idea with Undercover, but overall, Undercover was a flop with bad acting , horrible menu navigation and some graphical glitches. If EA would go back and look at what they did with Most Wanted and ask themselves, "Gee, what did we do right HERE?!?" I"m almost certain they'd find the answer. Personally, there should be a REAL Most Wanted 2. Not like Carbon, blargh. This, I might check out, but if it feels too much like GRID...it can kiss itself goodbye.

First, it doesn't matter if it looks like grid or it doesn't. It's just a teaser. The final game can be 100% different from this. However this is a huge change... It's interesting to see if they can actually get it right. Nfs was really in trouble as the last titles were nothing like what made the series it's name. This is an enormous bet from EA. And while they can't manage to get a great arcade they're really crazy to try a complete new market: simulators. Who knows? The nice thing about this change is that probably the outcome will either be a total failure or an insane succes. No more mediocre titles with 7-7.5 so that you don't even know what to expect from the next nfs, but a grade of 6 or 9

this looks great, like grid. but i think that NFS since pro street has been moving further and further away from undercover's illegal street racing.

nfs should stick to the streets leave real life simulations to gran turismo and pgr

if i didnt know that this was NFS, i would have thought it was GRID. very similar. not that it's a bad thing since GRID is great :) but still, when i think NFS, i think illegal street racing :D

StevieJ171 is right, this is kinda just a rip off of grid, i was hoping they'd follow on with undercover, bring out sumthin similar but ... seems like there back to ProStreet Style Gameplay or GRID. :(

I wish they would bring a new hot pursuit game out, but this game looks good though.

each time I view this game it remind me of GRID and GT4 an FORZA I know I said this before but dang!! it do.

marcelobtp if Im understanding you right.... ur saying people started with underground series ok got that if that what you meant. yes HTP2 IS WAY BETTER THAN UNDERGROUND but still a good series and yes they did have passion making it. but now EA is full of crap now. Im sure shift wont be any better than GRID or forza trying to compete with GRAND TURISMO.....NFS dont need to be a simulation game. EA need to go back to what made NFS special... open roads,country roads, exotic 200 miles an hour cars

hotrider12 that people stared with underground series... Hot pursuit 2 is way better than underground series and the others. Simply because until hot pursuit 2 Doing a game for EA was not only making money with it, they had passion...

hotrider12
hotrider12

for crying out loud has any of you guys played hotpursuit 2?? high stakes?? / hot pursuit / the need for speed?? those games are way better than most wanted. EA need to up grade them ps3 style graphic ....still be better than most wanted.

The best NFS was Most Wanted, followed by Underground 2. Undercover had the opportunity to bring together the best elements of MW and UG2, and make a spectacular street racing game. instead, they take away drags and drift, the two most enjoyable races, and make a repeatitive boring game. If I want a simulator, I'll play GT.

@ CPT_Crunch007: your perfectly right underground 2 was the best nfs thats the reason why i bought midnight club la instead of this crap!

After PRO STREET(worst of the series imo) any racing game looks good but so far GRID and CARBON are my favourites

It seems all the developers are trying the same thing, it looks like grid and those sort of games, racing/ arcade racers. as it has been said, if you wanna play a simulator, then play Forza or Gran Turismo. Personally i feel Underground 2 was the best of the Need For Speeds thus far. The others have been mediocar.

The original NFS and Porsche Unleashed were the best.

If i wanted to play a game like this I would buy Forza or Gran Turismo. NFS is about running from the cops, not rally racing. *yawn* I agree with fps, lets see a new NFS that is as good as Most Wanted or Underground. Now those are true NFS games right there

need for speed underground 3 would sell so quick........they wouldnt even need to worry about advertising.......too bad their wasting their time on rubbish games. I dont think this one will do good either.

i love the nfs series but they are starting to lose me. pro street left a bad impression because it didn't feel like nfs. from what i can see now, i probably will not get this game because it looks a lot like GRID. i will try it though for fear of passing on a good game because of assumptions.

i have not play grid or gt4, but if the gameplay is like the video, this game will be awesome!!! ....especially with the G25 steering wheel and the seat

@ oneofthefall...My naive friend, just because you did not enjoy GRID, does not mean this game does not look like GRID. Shift has sponsored races, sponsored cars, and on top of that, the exaggerated crashing simulation. That sounds reminiscent of a game called GRID. The game is similar in many ways to GRID, but that is not to say it plays like GRID. Instead of insulting people for pointing out an actual fact, probably you should look in the mirror and see who the true moron is and that is you. Please grow up and respect others peoples opinions because that type of attitude will lead you no where. C'mon man, don't get your panties in bunch, it's just a game and if you don't understand that, you have no life and/or no sense.

That sums it all up right there broken_bass_bin...... "it's looking much better than the last 5 or 6 NFS titles." How many more chances do they need to satisfy lol

hmm, the footage i've seen so far doesn't make it look like a racing sim. it makes it look like PGR or GRID... not GTR, RACE, or even Gran Turismo, which is where they should be aiming. hopefully i'll be proved wrong. anyway, sim or not i'm looking forward to it. it still looks like it'll be a fun game. it's looking much better than the last 5 or 6 NFS titles.
