Need for Speed Shift Reviewed, in so Many Words


Need for Speed Shift’s list of accomplishments is rather impressive: the best, most drivable cockpit view of any racing game out there, a fun and addictive leveling system, sound design that’s second to none, and graphics that blur the line between fantasy and reality. But where Shift truly separates itself from the pack is in its ability to—much like a woman convincing you you’re the best and biggest she’s ever had—make you believe you’re driving a simulation while only demanding arcade racing skills from you.


About our scale… the number of words in our review reflects the score of the game. In practical terms, you could assume that games reviewed in 49 words or fewer should be avoided, games reviewed in 50-75 words would make a decent rental, and games reviewed in 76 words or more would make a solid purchase.
