Need for Speed: Shift - Xbox 360

Game Description: Need For Speed: Shift is unlike any Need For Speed game released yet. Whereas the series has traditionally focused on arcade-style racing, Need For Speed: Shift moves into Gran Turismo territory and focusing on intense realism and simulation of racing. Electronic Arts describes the game as a racing game built by racers for racers.

EA has a tough sell with Need for Speed: Shift as franchise fans could be turned off by its simulation approach and sim fans might not trust the series' long history of arcade-style gameplay. It would be tragic if both groups overlooked this game. Gamers that do give Shift a chance, however, will find a polished, rewarding racing experience both offline and online. It's undoubtedly one of the year's best racing titles.
