"Careful, clean racing is the way forward in Shift 2 - perhaps that's why Slightly Mad have removed the 'aggression v precision' scoring system in favour of one single catch-all XP pot."

Phew, happy about that...good pre review on that linky ;O)

Matt that Reiter shot is scarily like the real thing! I got a few shots and vids of the flames out the back of it. You could roast a chicken on it!!

2Broadside someone in Gran Turismo and you'll collide with all the force of a couple of lawn bowls clunking together in the park. Broadside someone in Shift 2 and it'll take seven firefighters two days to cut you out of the wreckage of your sofa."

Officially one of my fave quotes of the year so far.

twit that mate ;O) As for that pic, yeah i know!! The three I've picked defo seem the most realistic looking of the ones I've seen so far, the majority don't stack up in comparison but do still look very nice if obviously from a game. Still can't wait ;O)

They haven't actually picked the best shots to compare at all.
There are much better newer images in the recent releases that makes those look crap. Page 2 is VERY good imo. They piced probably the worst dashboard shot that Shift released to compare too.
VERY promising stuff though

"but it offers hardened racers an extra edge; the right analogue stick can be employed to 'lean' into corners as you turn, allowing you to out-brake the opposition or shave vital milliseconds off your lap time."

My favourite quote taken from: http://www.videogamer.com/ps3/nfs_shift_2/preview-2865.html

"Dropping "Need for Speed" from the title is a polite way of reminding gamers that this isn't a game for boy racers and chavs. It's a technically accomplished simulation, and it demands time, patience and skill."

If you pre-order and they reduce the price afterwards, they charge you the reduced price. They only take your money when they dispatch the item.
I'm not sure about Game, but ShopTo will charge you the lower price if they reduce it after you order, OR the price you ordered at if they put it up!

Re: the comparisson pics. Shift 2 certainly is looking rather lovely! The one thing they seem to have absolutely nailed is the night lighting - something GT5 kinda sucks at. Instead of doing what GT5 has done, and put a certain level of "ambient" light in so you can still see the cars, they've gone the other way and made true light sources, so you only see what is lit, AND you also appear to have that effect where the dark areas appear even darker when you've got a light shining in your face.

I noticed Donington has a surprising lack of holes in the tarmac - not very authentic is it?!?!

Well Brands in a Porka RSR in the first SHIRF looks awesome if a little comical with all the fairground type of attractions.....but...the lighting, shadows, reflections, movement is all fantastic already. And trust me its the best sounding racing game on the Xbox360 by miles. Unfortunately I've not managed a reliable way to record sound using the iPhone 4 yet with out it sounding rubbish.

God I wish Turn 10 would take note and use more fixed-point TV-style replay cameras.

Here is a few examples of what Shift can do on the PC with plenty of Mods.
