About the Game
Another part of the popular racing series Need for Speed (NFS) brings us players really big changes. After the failure of previous episodes was dissolved studio EA Black Box and the series was put into the hands of developers, who mostly come from the studio SimBin. Thanks to these developers from pure arcade series NFS still almost simulator.
Shift offers a very large number of changes. Instead of free riding around town tearing on real racing circuits, plus several fanciful. Instead polished and Muscle vytuněných we go racing cars where we can (and do not have it) to set various crap, as the density of all-wheel-like. Great emphasis is placed on in-game driving experience. All the cars in the game are detailed processing interior and you can switch to a view from the cab. When turning the camera is leaning realistically, when a collision with a driver momentarily darkened before his eyes at high speeds narrows painting etc. The game is finally processed damage model, in which you can choose whether to have an effect on the ride or not.
Careers for players offers plenty of options. You start as a rookie, you end up as a top athlete. During races you earn points and stars. Stars serve to further progress in the game and get behind in the race. You get them for various maneuvers during the race (good race time round, overtaking opponents etc.). For points then proceed to the next level of driving (in the game there are 50). In addition, the game can collect various "achievements", ie awards when necessary to ride only with German cars, long consecutive win races or playing a game online.
Cars in the game are more than enough, and each of them can be easily visually improved. Racing eg. A BMW M3, Dodge Viper, Aston Martin, Mazda RX8 and a pile of others.
