x360a Reviews: Dirt 2 & Need For Speed: Shift
Written Thursday, October 01, 2009 By Dan WebbView author's profile
We have a racing themed review release today as we focus on two games with radically different backgrounds. On the one hand, Codemasters and Dirt have a franchise built on an engine that has had critical acclaim in recent years and after the success of the original, is looking to build on it in more ways than one. On the other hand, we have EA and Need For Speed: Shift. A franchise that has chopped and changed over the years, and you're never sure what you're going to get.
Will the formula pay off this year for EA? Or do they need to look at the consistency of racers like Dirt, and adopt that formula? Even more so, can Codies build on the strong foundations laid down by Dirt, or is the new X-Games push misguided? Read the reviews to find out the answers to these questions and more.
