Need for Speed: Shift

Eric Taylor - Guest Reviewer
Content at a glance:

Content descriptors: Mild Violence This is a racing simulation game in which players can select and customize a car to compete against other drivers on city streets and professional race circuits. Players earn "profile points" for performing certain skillful actions in the game (e.g., passing a car, mastering a corner on a difficult track, etc.), and can use their points to upgrade their driver profiles. Drivers also can earn "aggression points" for erratic driving or bumping into other cars; when racers collide with objects and cars on the track, they sometimes grunt in pain.

Shift into high gear! Designed to deliver a true driver’s experience that reflects contemporary motorsports, Need for Speed Shift is built by racers for racers. Need for Speed Shift delivers an authentic and immersive driving experience, replicating the true feeling of racing high-end performance cars like never before. Players are thrust into the heart of the action with immersive and exciting features including a stunningly realistic first-person cockpit view camera and an all-new crash mechanic, providing an unrivaled sensation of the speed and feeling of racing a car on the extreme edge of control.
