Shift 2 Unleashed's a violent and immersive racer that recreates the driving experience like no other game on the market. In doing so it builds well on the first Shift's foundations, benefitting from Slightly Mad Studios' more refined touch and the inclusion of Autolog, but its handling is still too loose and its steps forward too small for it to truly beat Gran Turismo and Forza – although it does enough to ensure that it's pulled ever closer.

Shift 2 is technically very impressive, but like Hot Pursuit, it's the social features surrounding the game that define it as an experience. If you're a serious fan of the genre, know that Shift 2 does several things better than anything else on the market right now, which makes it an essential purchase.

All of the above add to a fully-featured and fairly slick iteration on Slightly Mad’s initial attempt at the sim-arcade racing genre, but you get the feeling it’s still lacking a suitable hook to call its own. Forza handles better out of the box (and even after tweaking in truth), GT5 caters for its anorak-wearing Audi brigade with aplomb, and the likes of Hot Pursuit blaze an arcade trail that Shift 2 doesn’t even attempt to gun for.
