The NfS series has made a tumble the last few years, but is back in the upper regions of arcade racing. Well... arcade racing with a bit of a twist: Shift is not a tech-tweak-and-sim-game, but some strategy is needed to complete the courses. And to be completely honest, it's just the flavour I like. It's arcade enough to have fun and play it with your friends, but not too simple that every idiot can play it with his eyes shut.
Is this the best NfS ever? No, it sometimes has it's flaws in handling the car and loading times are a bit long, but it is absolute a great game to play!
