Shift 2 Unleashed Media Reaction

Posted on December 12, 2010

We gave the gaming media their first taste of Shift 2 Unleashed, and by the sounds of things, a few of them are still twitching from the adrenaline surge.

Not that we can blame them. Slightly Mad Studios has taken a game that already captured the ferocity of racing better than any other, and then decided to poke it with a stick to get it nice and angry. Unleashed is faster, more brutal and – thanks to Autolog – more connected than any other sim racing game on the market.

Shift 2 Unleashed takes the immersive, whiplash-inducing cockpit view from the first game to the next level. Now players go inside the driver’s helmet so they can scan every turn, feel every jarring bump, and experience every devastating crash like never before.

Here’s just a sample of what the press managed to stammer after we peeled them out of their virtual seats.

“Slightly Mad Studios is finding room for innovation in a genre that can be slow to move forward.” – IGN

“This is Need For Speed, this is Shift 2 and so you’d better believe this is where the next big thing on four wheels is going to come from.” – CVG

“Physics have also been improved, and some of the spectacular crashes I saw left me grinning in guilty pleasure.” – GamePro

“Out on the track I almost felt my teeth clattering together as my head bounced to each bump and dip in the pavement. ” – Shacknews
