i have the first shift and didnt really like how it was all race oriented. im a bigger fan of upgrading and racing on the streets. the graphics and everything like that are sweet though.

I think I'll get it. I see a Corvette C6.R with my name written on it.

I'm probably going to pass on this, I had the first one and like 69Z/28Camaro said i like the street racing, it will probably be a great game but i'm gonna stick with Need for Speed Hot Pursuit!!!!

I will probably get this one. Was playing the first one and my phat ps3 YLOD'd on me and then I got a slim and replayed a good chunk of the game and got stuck. Then I saw Shift 2 was coming out soon (this is back in December) and popped Shift in and had my platinum a week later!

I love that trailer in HD. It makes me want to buy that NFS Shift 2. NFS never fails to amuse me.

Anyone have this yet? I plan on picking up 2 copies (1 for me and 1 for a friend) and play tonight. Plus I just joined the rewards program for Sears and Kmart. You get a $20 gaming gift certificate with purchase of shift 2 today (or this week)

So after 4 stores, the 5th store had S2U last night! Only got to play a couple hours but from what I played, I'm glad I bought it. Loved the first one.

Got the game last night, only played for about an hour though before bed. Helmet cam is interesting, takes a little bit to get used to.

I still can't beat you MAGfuz, your times are always better then mine.

Put traction control from high to low, and now I'm finally driving good. Car was pushing like crazy with it on high. Think they may have gone overboard with the computer controls.

I'm glad you can tune the cars for individual tracks or group of tracks, that is a very nice feature, something I wish GT5 had.

I like the arcade style fun there was with the old ones. I'll have to pass on Need for speed again. :(

i may get it after the proce comes down, i wont pay $60 for any game, i can wait and pay less later. i have the first NFS Shift and i like it, and ive seen videos talking about how they used actual race car drivers to get everything just right and if the drivers didnt like it they changed it to be more realistic.

BUT, i think before i get this game i will probably get gran turismo 5

Patch v1.02 came out and they improved the controls a ton. I'll be glad when PSN gets back up so I can upload some videos.

Finally up to the last few series. Got Endurance and then GT3/Works/GT1. I don't know if I want to master all tracks twice however! With online being down (PSN) I may not get the 10 hours online or driver duel trophies. Way too many games to play as well. Might have to re-pick up Forza 3!

I'm having some real fun in the game now. You definitely need to tune the cars though, they come stock with the softest springs and 50 psi tire pressure.

Did you see that they are coming out with a Drag Racing DLC? Quarter Mile, Standing Mile, and drag tires.

The video of the DLC they found in the files:

Honestly Magnum, I haven't really needed to tune any cars. Just make them faster than the competition, lol!
