    Does anyone have Need for Speed Shift? I tried the demo and it seems like a pretty good racer. It's not Gran Turismo, but and it's not like the other Need For Speed games, it's just in between. I ordered it on Lockerz, and will hopefully get it this month :p.

    Got bored with it extremely quickly. Traded it back 7 days later.

    Well, I did get it for free. If I trade it in I'll make a profit ;)

    Don't know how serious a sim racer you are: Shift has outstanding cockpit graphics & effects IMO. Feels superb with a good FFB wheel, especially the Fanatec GT3 RS. However, although at lower speeds the physics feel very good, when you start to really push the cars there is a "grip assist" feel to the physics that destroys the sim experience. Sad, because in most other respects this is a very good game.

    I absolutely love games like Gran Turismo, but I like arcade racers too. I'm considering this one in-between. I don't have a wheel yet, but when GT5 comes out I'll be buying a Logitech wheel. I'll probably also buy Forza 3, but I won't buy a wheel for my 360 too. :\
