SHIFT 2 Unleashed Laguna Seca Hot Lap Video


As many of you know, I am a big fan of racing games. Laguna Seca is also one of my favorite tracks (and that’s awesome, as it is in pretty much any racing sim you can find). I was also a big fan of the first SHIFT title (despite a couple drawbacks). Unleashed, though, is looking like a whole other animal.

Here, we have a replay of a hot lap in a modified Corvette race car, driven by Tommy Milner, the winner of the Dubai 24hr. It shows off the track, and I gotta say, the game is looking damn sexy. It may not have the detail in the cars that we see in the likes of Forza or Gran Turismo, but, undoubtedly, as a whole, the game looks awesome (and, dare I say, it looks better overall than the aforementioned titles).

Mixed with the simulation approach of the SHIFT titles and the Need for Speed style, this is definitely one I am going to have to pick up. Not to mention, a lap time of 1:21:709 is pretty impressive.

    I agree with you Jay.

    I think this game is shaping up to be a great competitor to GT5. I’ve liked what I’ve seen so far.

    I just need my new steering wheel now.

    Do not want. Too much center pivot on the cars. Too much drifting too. The physics look off by a long shot. Hope there is a demo so I can verify the center pivot. Shift failed again.
