I bought Need For Speed Shift 2 Unleashed today. I gotta say I love it. I have hated every need for speed that is closed course racing as well so I have no clue what prompted me to get it. The only thing that needs work is the steering. It feels kinda unnatural at times but all in all the game is great. Especially the car selection.
It has The NSX, Evo's, STI, GTR, Lotus, Bugatti, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, everything. It's sweet.
