Improved Driver Experience

In Need for speed there is a hugely improved driver experience.This includes visual & audio cues, and there is now a 3d HUD that mimics the head of the driver, with g forces and the inertia being visible.

When you are driving and your speed increases, so does to your depth of field on the screen. This is great it encourages you to go as fast as you can, just to get a better view from the cockpit. This is a loud and intense experience just like a real driver on the race track.

The cockpits are accurately recreated,and when the racing is least chaotic, you can see every little detail inside the cockpit, but careful, don't take your eyes of the road. Even the windscreens, show the dirt , and scratch with contact, cracking and almost breaking.

As always with the other need for speed games, the AI of the computer players are very sophisticated & tough. They react to your driving styles, so if you are aggressive in your driving then expect no mercy from them.

There is a new Dynamic Crash Effect feature also in need for speed shift, different from any other driving games.This is great, you really feel like you are taking damage when your crashing into other objects, as the visual & audio cues are chaos.

Customization

You can Customize your car I any way you want, turbo chargers, nitros, roll cages, racing dials, Super charges, and much more.

You can customize the styling of the cars too, like paint, rims, and vinyls . Everything is customizable. You just have to win the races and collect the dollars. Its also easy to get the dollars now, as races pay tons of cash so you can get started upgrading right away.
