Been playing the demo on the xbox.. Its pretty sweet, I love the graphics. They improved some things over 2, but the steering feels mushy to me, I hope I'll be able to change that when I get the full version. I love the cabin view, I'm really happy they incorporated that into the game. On expert mode (the only way I play), you now have a manual tranny with clutch.

Shifting with clutch is really cool, but downshifting can take some getting used to. As you use the left trigger to brake, and the left upper button to press the clutch. This leaves me using the middle finger to brake (less precision in my case since I'm not used to using it, especially when its proportional), and using my index for the clutch.

I hope you can still tune the cars before racing (like in F2, but its not there in the demo), and in the demo at least- there are no tire wear/ heat and damage indicators. I hope this is not the case for the full version. It promises to be fun to play cause the demo track is 20X more scenic than anything in F2, more NFS style.

Tom.

Gonna get mine at 5pm today, can't wait to drive my ZR-1! Too bad there's no SS/TC, but I believe there is a aspiration conversion and drivetrain conversion for it.

I thought NFS: Shift looked like a good sim. racing game, but Forza looks even better. Not sure if I'll buy it because I'm saving for Modern Warfare 2, but I'll definitely rent it.

The Cobalt SS/SC is in the game, but no TC version, however there is an engine swap option to put in the LNF in FWD and a LS6 in FWD, there is a RWD drivertrain swap for all three engines, and if you don't want an engine swap you can swap out the supercharger for a turbocharger on the LSJ. Already have mine at B500 with a turbocharger swap on the LSJ and it is as sweet as hell when you hear it spool! :D

^ I don't, I played the demo of NFS Shift and didn't like it, controls are really weird and the coefficient of friction is way too high, cars have too much grip and drifting is really fake in that game..

Shift is gay, steering and handling kills the game not to mention the confusing modding process, maybe not so confusing but retarded. I want FM3 but am gonna wait a few more days just cause of money. I do have a game to trade in so it won't be too bad I hope, game prices are rediculous. Once they start selling regular games for 100 and such I well be done with buying haha.

Shift seemed pretty good to me, but they definitely focused more on it being a cockpit simulated game rather than giving it good depth in customization and what not (though the physics lacks imo, which is weird since they made it a simulator game). I would just get Forza 3 now though, Shift was really only good before Forza 3 was out, now there's really no point in it.

Btw, anyone who already has the game needs to take some pics of their virtual balt.
