    Just a little background info. I've played gran turismo 1-5 prologue and forza 2 every time i get the chance. So i will definitely test how realistic this game is.

    If anyone wants to play, i'll be on at 2pm est

    HOW TO LEVEL UP FAST AND GET A SHIT TON OF CASH.

    So after playing this game for several hours me and this kid figured out how to level up fast as hell.

    1. make sure you have aquired the honda s2000 since it is the easiest car to control during drift (keep it stock or use a loaner car)
    2. Go to quick race and choose drift, choose the course Hazyview- eight
    3. set the laps 10-20, remember each drift session is 3 sets. So if you set the drift to 10 laps, you'll do 10 laps each set, so overall 30 laps (but each session is about 5 mins since the course is so small)
    4..........
    5. Profit

    I was able to go from level 1 - 50 in about 3 - 3.5 hours. Also gained 10 mil. Remember, you have to finish all the sets for the game to save your levels.

    read the review on ign and it seems like a solid racing game. said that it actually makes you respect the fact that sometimes going 150 mph isnt the best idea in the world. :rofl::noes:

    i dunno, game feels a little floaty so far. Just did the intro, game calculated everything for me after 1 lap. Everything set to pro/hard difficulty :hsugh:

    its need for speed man its no gran turismo. i bet that the feelings on how heavy a car should be is off for almost every car in the game.

    so far graphics are good, im seeing slight frame rate drop but barely noticeable. So far the game is 200 degree steering off the bat. I gotta mess with the settings before i say its like any game.

    Ok, so the game does recognize the g25 controller, all six gear, and the clutch. Not bad so far EA. I can also play with dead zone calibration, brake dead zones, clutch dead zone, and so on. I can also play with the sensitivity's of each area on the g25 when it comes to steering and pedals. This says alot compared to gran turismo which never allowed you do all that other than the steering wheel only. I can also do full 900 degree steering now.

    I just found out NFS Shift is a game gaurentee at gamestop! If you dont like it, return it within a week for full $69.99 refund. I might have to take up on this offer, worse comes to worst i get to play it for free for a week. :bowdown:

    If your a sim fan, this is a fucking must have. I just drove on the ring and i am convinced this shit is fucking amazing. Its so dead on accurate with the physics. Im driving a ford escort (thats all i can afford right now) stock and my lap time is actually realistic. Right now im gonna play career to gain more income so i can play it in a better car. (ford escort only tops out at 100 mph)

    well guys, this game is fucking awesome. EA really did flip the need for speed series. Right now im going to my night class but i'll be back around 10. I'll upload a couple of vids hopefully tonight.

    FUCK IT, im staying home, this game is badass. :bowdown: adjusted my configuration and now it feels fucking great. Cars no longer feel floaty and the sensitivity is awesome. Von Gitten Jr. was right, he said this game is the most realistic game he's played since GT3 and its on point.

    The game does have bumper, interior, hood, and 3rd person views.

    can't go online, thats part of the rules i was given when i got the game. :rofl: The games tuning aint to bad. Just as deep i'd say as about forza 2 from what i've seen so far. But you can be alot more precise about your upgades.
