最近幾年擬真類的賽車遊戲玩了很多,主機上的GT3代到5代,FORZA 3代、4代和Horizon,PC上的DIRT,GRID,F1系列和WRC系列,卻好像一直忽略了EA的Need for Speed系列。其實在我小學時代Need for Speed的初代Hot Pursuit就玩的不亦樂乎,感覺開着跑車和警車追逐十分有趣。後來玩到NFS5 Porsche 2000,在今天看來這真是一部NFS裏的另類,而當時懵懂的我只覺得這款NFS和Hot Pursuit完全不一樣,不僅可以用“真正坐在車裏”的方式來賽車,而且沒有了警車追逐,只有“老爺車”來比賽,任務也大多是試車等等。剛開始當然覺得無趣,但後來慢慢愛上了那種精細操控,劃過每一個彎角,同時還能欣賞風景的感覺,直到今天,我的Dream Car依然是Porsche 911。
說回Shift 2,在經歷了追求爽快度的追逐類二次復刻版Hot Pursuit之後,EA又將NFS的15代作品定爲專業賽車作品。從製作陣容來看,的確不容小視,Slightly Mad歷經兩年製作,更請來漂移方程式Formula D冠軍Vaughn Gittin Jr.助陣當作顧問並錄製導覽視頻和音頻。首當其衝是畫面,這一向不是NFS的強項,不僅做不到頂級,而且對硬體優化不足。但是在實際遊戲畫面中適當的動態模糊和特效比較討好眼睛,不會特別讓人在意。車輛模型做的不錯,細節都比較到位,車內飾的儀表包括某些車型的HUD顯示都有體現。車體外觀的細節也不錯,例如Bugatti Veyron的尾翼在高速狀態下會升起(但是剎車時不會翹起,這一點在Forza4和GT5裏都有體現)。而新加的頭盔視角很有新意,但過於抖動並且視野不夠開闊,玩起來不方便而且會頭暈。車內視角車輛和車手模型都比較精緻,但是問題是手和方向盤,換擋撥片等的動作並不同步,有時候甚至會出現手不動只是方向盤動的狀況。遊戲還特別在撞車時將畫面變黑白來加強氣氛。賽道的還原較好,包括了著名的紐博格林北環賽道,這在PC遊戲中比較少見。
說道最重要的手感方面,這是這款遊戲的軟肋。EA宣傳說賽車手試完後認爲有90%的擬真度,雖然沒有太大可比性,但是我認爲遊戲的手感至少和我平時開的買菜車大相徑庭,與GT和FORZA相比也大不一樣。懸掛的反應比較遲鈍,過彎時的側傾很生硬,不同車的車重差異沒有表現出來,碰撞判定也有問題,在碰撞之後沒有任何打滑直接失去抓地力和控制,沒有補救機會,不同賽道區域的摩擦力差異都有表現,但同樣過於生硬,而且沒有抓準賽車的極限表現,在本不應該到極限的地方打滑。而在漂移模式中,又好像成了另外一個遊戲,操控完全不同。值得肯定的的是,不同發動機驅動佈局之間的差別比較明顯,輪胎也對操控有影響。總而言之,Shift 2的感覺就像直接拿NFS其他競速快感遊戲的引擎進行修改而沒有修改徹底,不僅與GT,Forza有較大差距,與GRID相比亦不能及。
做賽車遊戲是需要經驗的,山內一典專注GT系列二十多年,GT5多次跳票,連PSP上的GT攜帶版也爲佳作,Forza做到第三部才走上正軌,還與Top Gear合作。Shift 2作爲系列第二作也差強人意,可惜的是EA至今未有推出下一部計劃,而原班人馬據說也自立門戶製作次世代賽車遊戲Project Cars,希望他們能成功。
總而言之,Shift 2不能成爲經典,但也不失爲佳作,作爲玩不到Forza或者GT在PC上拿來解手癢倒是不錯。特別是擁有紐博格林北環賽道,在掌握特別的手感後也可以刷上兩圈圈速,看看與現實中差距多大,也樂趣橫生。

Forza 5 is the racer I really want to play but this game is scratching that itch for me at the moment on PC.

The handling is very sensitive and each car takes some getting used to but is eventually very satisfying to drive. A good range of difficulty settings and driver assists which you can switch off means you can give yourself a fair challenge and feel satisfied when you drive well. The helmet camera and head physics were my favourite feature from the first Shift game and they return in Shift 2 to make the sensation of racing at speed only just in control of your car, really engaging. Unfortunately the immersion for me goes no further as there is no support for the Microsoft Xbox 360 Wireless Racing Wheel which is my wheel of choice on PC, although in fairness plenty of Logitech wheels are supported. This limitation plus the distinctly floaty nature of the cars' handling causes me to play this game as more of an arcade racer than I do a game like Forza 4, but it is still enjoyable when played with the right expectation. The trusty 360 gamepad is supported and works very well for racing as you would expect. The menus are mostly easy to navigate with the 360 pad but all the on-screen button prompts are for the keyboard. It took me a while to work out how to save settings with the controller (press start) but after some trial and error I can deal with the menus well enough.

Shift 2 has a wide selection of real cars and tracks plus a smattering of fictional courses, some of which return from the first game. Full car customisation is provided allowing you to upgrade the performance and customise the appearance of the vehicles quite dramatically. Cars are given an overall performance rating and using this are separated into categories A, B, C, D just as in the original Shift game and familiar to players of other racing sims such as Forza Motosport.

The game looks pretty good in 1080p and on my machine (i5, 7850, 8GB RAM) with all presets set to High runs at 50-70 frames per second on the whole, though on certain corners of certain tracks framerate drops into the high 30s. I would like to tweak my settings a bit more to achieve a minimum of 60 but the game offers no benchmark mode so checking the effect of a graphics setting takes a long time - many changes even require you to restart the game. It is also disappointing that the low resolution cutscenes were clearly pre-rendered with consoles in mind which makes the unskippable cinematics during the career mode look very out-dated - cinematics should be used to flatter a game, but in the case of Shift 2 it's a relief to get past them and into the game which itself looks very attractive.

The Autolog and Online play require an EA Origin account (though the game does not require the Origin client). Unlike some players on the community hub I had no trouble at all activating the game or fighting with any DRM. The game installed and played easily from Steam just like any other game. Steam Overlay popped up showing me the product key when I first launched the game but I dismissed that as I have never had to type it in yet. I have tried to get an online match on two occassions and both times I was the only player online and had to create a lobby. Hopefully the sale weekend will get some new players lobbying up but I would not recommend this title if you are looking for multiplayer racing. It does provide a satisfying single player experience for players who enjoy racing against AI and testing themselves on simulations of the best cars and circuits in motorsport.

To my mind this game was a good buy at the recent sale price of £4.99 but I would hesitate to recommend it at the current full price of £19.99. It is true there are not a lot of other games of this type available on the PC which have the same degree of polish as Shift 2 Unleashed, but there are definitely better experiences out there on Steam for your hard-earned £20.

Let me say this game is Not for the faint of heart.

This game gets almost everything right, And makes it hard, even for a experienced racer as myself, to win.

So what it gets right?

The car list, With Free DLC for this game its got a wide rage from classic to modern day cars.
The tuning, Its expanded from the first Shift, But its less user friendly.
The tracks, A wide range of challenging track to pick from, Allmost all of them can be done at night.
The visuals, This game looks, Amazing.
The gameplay, Is smooth and its fun as can be For a Sim racer of this type.

What dose it get wrong?

The UI is just, Confusing, Once you understand whats what then its not so bad, But it still seems to be about you and someone else's race, Rather than you and the car.
Not much Story. (more like no story.)
Some Physics bugs.
AI can be unfair often. (I mean really, a Pagain Huayra vs a Lotus Elise? come on)

Bottom line

I say get this game if you think you call yourself a Racer. If you don't know how to race at all, Get Shift 1 it gets First time driving down.

I played this game using the unofficial community patch by nogripracing, so I have no experience with the Vanilla version. Also I didn't delve deep into the tuning options and online.

As of this writing I clocked in around 37 hours and I am confident to say I really love this game. I played through the first SHIFT and it was my first ever racing game that made the cockpit view comfortable to play with. SHIFT 2 refined the experience with their new Helmet Cam -- The camera is attached to the driver's helmet and it mimics the head movement and shakiness when driving, gives you tunnel vision, and it blurs your vision when you hit a wall. A lot of people say the camera is disorienting, but personally I don't really think so. I was not once disorientated, confused or the effects got in the way of the gameplay. SHIFT 2 is arguably the only racing game that lets you truly be the driver, rather than be the car itself. You feel how scary speed is when driving at 200 miles per hour, underestimate the car, and the car will severely punish you. This what made this game so great for me.

Now for the negatives. The menu system is stylish, but atrocious. The key assignments for the buttons are all over the place. I am playing using the 360 controller and the game can't reassign the button icons to match the controller's.

Earning money is way too easy. Want to buy that certain car? Grind in Quick Race once your driver level is high. Select the Dakota Oval track, set it to one lap and no opponents, and bam, $20,000 per 35 seconds.

Visual customization is basic and practically useless.

The slightest bump and the slightest touch to the dirt will send your car spinning. To be fair, I haven't rammed a car or drove off-road in real life before, but these annoyances can ruin the entire race because the AI suddenly bumped into you or you get sucked to the dirt like a black hole.

Some of the DLCs are way too easy and one DLC broke the game's pace. The Speedhunter pack gives you the drag racing career, quarter mile career and access to some highly tuned cars. The problem is the cars are free to acquire. I won the drag race and quarter mile career without breaking a sweat because I had free access to the stupidly fast Nissan GT-R. Some of these cars can be used to your default career and I breezed past some of the events.

My narrator-guy-person-thing is annoying. I loved the British guy in SHIFT 1 and while the new guy is alright, he's too, uh... Not... I dunno. He's not British-ey and kawaii enough.

I hate drifting. I hate drifting in SHIFT 1, and I hate drifting in SHIFT 2.

The title of the game is stupid. Really? SHIFT 2 Unleashed? What's next? SHIFT 3 Insurrection? SHIFT 4 Reloaded?

Overall I love this game. The negatives are there and noticeable, but the core gameplay, the cars, the races, the tracks, the sights and sounds, are all great.
