Getting into Gear
One of the great things about Need for Speed Shift is that the game has managed to create the sense of speed while racing around the track. In fact, the blurring motion and other details are so realistic at times that they are almost frightening. Players are also treated to several different tracks to race on that take on different themes and provide good diversity to the game.
Satisfying the Need for Speed
People who have a lot for speed and are looking for a racing game that will test their skills to the limits are likely to have fun playing Need for Speed Shift. However, it should be noted that this is a game that does not let players off lightly and anyone who is not experienced in playing racing games is likely to find that this game is a bit too challenging at first.
Need for Speed Shift is a fast-paced, slick looking racing game for Android.
The object of Need for Speed Shift is simple: finish the circuits faster than the other three drivers. In career mode, winning gives you cash which you can spend on upgrading your car to make it faster, or to buy a new car (there are eight real life vehicles in total to choose from). There's also a Quick Race mode where all cars are available to select.
Controlling your car in Need for Speed Shift is a straightforward affair. The vehicle auto-accelerates and you slow down by touching the brake button. You steer by tapping left or right of the car and there's a drift button to help with cornering.
Need for Speed Shift looks and sounds great and you'd struggle to find many other Android games with such slick 3D graphics and detailed backgrounds. If only there were a multiplayer mode in the game, then Need for Speed Shift would get a higher score.
If you're into racing games, Need for Speed Shift will give you hours of amusement.
