lnin0's Shift 2: Unleashed (Xbox 360) review

Great car; blown engine

Shift 2 gets so much right; in-car/in-helmet view, AI, track selection, car customization, damage model, night racing, Autolog, that it is all the more painful when you realize the game is flawed at its core. I am a fan of all types of racing games, but by any standard Shift 2's twitchy, slick handling model is poorly done. You can throw numerous assists and configurations at the problem to make it serviceable but the core of your driving experience will always feel askew. Adding to the issues are cumbersome menus, load times for absolutely everything and some very rudimentary online options.
