EA Releases Need for Speed: Shift

EA have brought the popular arcade racing franchise Need for Speed to the iPhone, and have just released the second installment of the series.

The first was Undercover, which is very different from Shift content-wise.

Need for Speed: Shift is a professional racing game, with 20 licenced cars and 18 tracks to race on.

The controls are similar to Undercover – you tilt to steer and there’s auto-acceleration.  Unfortunately, these nifty controls won’t be much fun due to the fact that Need for Speed: Shift is a professional racer, therefore there’s no police.

It stands on the AppStore for $9.99, and due to the high-quality graphics, it weighs in at 179MB.  You can check it out now, and tell us how it compares to the current professional racing king: Real Racing

Need for Speed: Shift ($9.99)
