The Need For Speed franchise has undergone a variety of transformations over its lifetime, but the latest outing in EA’s car ‘racer’ series looks to be a total rebirth.

OXCGN’s Shift 2: Unleashed Review
Exhilarating NEW series for Need For Speed franchise

In this generation it’s a daunting task to plan on working on a sequel to a certain game that surprisingly received more than positive reviews and sold quite well. It’s a no brainer when it was announced Need for Speed would have three new titles in the franchise, and NFS: Shift 1 was the cream of the crop that stood out of the three.
Sure it wasn’t anywhere near as complex as Microsoft’s Forza Motorsport 3 or Sony’s Gran Tursimo 5, but it was a great ‘fun’ racing game nevertheless.
Yes it was somewhat confusing at first, as it wasn’t exactly an arcade racer, yet at the same time, it wasn’t a SIM racer either, but caught in the either somewhere in between. Somehow NFS: Shift 1 did manage to set itself apart from the rest of the racing crowd and restore faith in EA’s NFS franchise.
OXCGN has over 250+ excellent in-game images and heaps of videos for you on Shift 2: Unleashed:-
