    Yeah the AI was weird, but I really really liked the game, despite its flaws :)

    I'm really looking forward to this sequel, as I'm not too excited about the new hot pursuit right now.

    lol the last shift was basically hot pursuit all they did was crash into you, I did enjoy the game but that really frustrated me

    two things i want fixed over the first Shift and it's a winner to me: the stupid AI and car handling..but as we know EA, they won't..so back to Forza Motorsport 3 for me..

    :flip: EA..

    insane AI should be fixed indeed, ruined SHIFT for me, but otherwise i like the game, hot pursuit also looks nice, back to teh old roots but im geared towards semi sims these days.

    I prefer Shift over grid once its modded how I like it too be. GRID is a great game. But I still have alot of fun with shift. Feels much better with a wheel then grid and SHIFT actually has clutch support.

    Grid wannabe lol, Grid was a garbage full on arcade racer that while fun for a day or so, quickly got dull, and also has below par support for wheels, but tbh im not a fan of any of the Codemasters racing games.

    While Shift wasn't perfect, it was a good mix of arcade, with a little sim thrown in if your turned off every assist, it worked well enough with a pad, and had great built in support for wheels, it also had a very decent selection of cars, and a very moddable engine.
    The AI was quite aggressive, but personally i liked it that way, even if it did make it frustrating at times.

    Looking forward to this personally, even if it might not get much playtime if im still on GT5.

    Alot more people than those who care about the Shift games.

    Visually Shift2 will beat GT5, as i think GT5 is inconsistent visually, but gameplay wise it will have to improve alot on the original to beat GT5.

    Im with u on the visuals because GT5 is not on PC. Shift 1 was great visually even compared to GT5. Grid had alot less cars. My biggest gripe about shift was really not many tracks. The one thing I love bout gt5 is real and fantasy tracks. I badly would love to have special stage R11 from gt series in shift. Oh god I could dream lol. EFF it lol im gonna load up some GT3 on PS2 with my g25. Then some gt4.

    Same trolling posts all the time. It is like you only have 2 or 3 ideas in your head and can do nothing other than repeat them.

    What Mod would you recommend for Shift? I still have my install disk laying around somewhere and have been itching to reinstall for awhile now...
