E3 2009: Need For Speed: Shift – Cockpit Gameplay Footage

1 min read


Need For Speed: Shift is actually looking rather damn good to be honest. I am a bit sad that EA have given up on making us a decent proper Need for Speed title, but I guess that it’s at least a step in the right direction after the last couple of disasters.

I do find it strange how the opted to make a game like this when there are already so many of them out there. It looks like a mixture of Grid, Forza, GT5 and PGR all packed in one, so I have to ask, who is going to make our “exotic sports car game” that has been so sorely missed for so long now. Test Drive Unlimited 2 maybe?

Either way, the game actually does look very good, the racing fast paced and the driving physics approachable enough without being ridiculous.

Check out the video after the jump and see for yourself.
