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.

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.

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.

Shift 2: Unleashed reedita el éxito de su primera entrega y ofrece otro notable esfuerzo por parte de Electronic Arts a la hora de acercarse cada vez más al campo de la simulación. No está a la altura de los grandes referentes del género por una IA poco realista y unas prestaciones de vehículos poco menos que imposibles, pero si la saga continúa progresando y pule algunos de sus pequeños "peros" puede convertirse a corto plazo en un contendiente de altura.

Shift 2 Unleashed s'invite au rayon des simulations consoles et joue quasiment dans la même cour qu'un Forza Motorsport. Plus exigeant que son prédécesseur, le jeu développé par Slightly Mad Studios propose des courses épuisantes durant lesquelles la moindre erreur est immédiatement sanctionnée. Grâce à sa vue casque hyper immersive, Shift 2 a de sérieux atouts à faire valoir face à des simulations souvent plates en termes de sensations.
