There seem to be quite a few good racing game deals about at the moment, both in terms of price and the quality of the titles, and this latest one'll have you tearing around the track in no time.
You can pick up a copy of the game on the Xbox 360 for £12.99 from The Game Collection, which is almost £4 cheaper than the next best offer of £16.85 from ShopTo.
Need for Speed: Shift gives you access to a range of cars including average cars, performance cars, and super cars such as the Bugatti Veyron and the Lamborghini Gallardo, and you'll love the way the races play out, especially if you're viewing them from inside the car. The dashboards have been recreated in amazing detail and everything reacts as it should, you'll see the needles on the speed gauge jumping up and down and the changes in the state of your turbo charger. The really important thing is that everything seems to be more excited when you're belted in behind the wheel, from crashes to heart pounding approaches on bends.
The single player is wonderfully simple, doing away with any kind of story whatsoever. However, you won't be complaining as it's replaced by a number of stylish distractions that'll keep you entertained when you aren't trying to charge into first place. The multiplayer is also surprisingly small in terms of modes, but once again it's great fun to be a part of.
If you want to know what it's like to sit behind the wheel of some of the best cars in the world without having to splash out a ridiculous amount of money or taking the time out to travel to a track day, then Need for Speed: Shift might be the game for you.
