Shift's driving mechanics were ok. They just need to make the cars more grippy and not slide from the center of the car.

EA did release a patch to fix the grip issues with shift - at least on XBOX360.

but given criteron's reputation/history with making good racing games, I am def. looking forward to this.

Its nice to see the NFS series going back to is (middle) roots. Fast cars, fast courses and lots of risky shortcuts. I liked the hot pursuit series and am excited so see it with better physics and from what i can see, much better graphic.

Oh my...Shift is fun for some arcade/sim-like action but NFS roots are always with cops and arcade style. Looks like I'll be picking this up along with SC2.

I have had almost every NFS game on either PC or xbox since NFS 2. I like them all until shift. Compared to it's direct competition; PG4, Forza2, DIRT1/2... I couldn't play it. The driving physics were just too awful (on 360 anyway). This was Pre-patch I guess, but I actually sold it after about 2 weeks as I couldn't stand it.

Man I was happy to see this. I have played Need for Speed since the first one and can say that Hot Pursuit was one of, if not the, real pinnacle of the series. I have always been hoping they would come back to their roots and do something like this.
