Digit Verdict for Need For Speed: Shift

By Mihir Patkar

All put together, Need For Speed: Shift isn�t the wild ride that we have come to expect from the franchise. It�s an emperor trying out new clothes, while still trying to make the followers accept the change in garments. Taken in the context of a game that is meant to build a franchise of simulation-based racing games, NFS: Shift is the perfect introductory point for arcade racing fans to get into this new groove. Race Driver: Grid was the only other game that made the transition as simple as this. In a way, this is EA�s attempt to make another slow transition, buoyed by the success of changing the super-fun FIFA 2006 into the now super-serious FIFA 2009 and FIFA 2010, which has seen Pro Evolution Soccer quaking in its boots. All indications point to this new game doing the same for the Need For Speed franchise, as it courts arcade racers to simulation gaming, and serious sim racers to the world of NFS. The title almost sums up the message of this review: Shift!
