NFS: Shift is actually pretty decent, more so with the wheel.
It's no hardcore sim like some of the PC games, or even as simmy as GT5p, but it's light years ahead of any other NFS game. Some days, when I'm blasting around the Nurburgring in my 760HP M3, I might even call it "good."
The nice thing about it being slightly arcadey is that you can get the feeling of the cars being easily controllable despite being on the edge without the hours of suspension and tire pressure tweaking I've done on some of the PC games. Yes, it's more realistic to spend hours tweaking your spring rates, downforce, and whatnot, but it's more fun
for it to usually just work.
They managed to balance it in such a way that if you drive like an idiot, you will still go flying off the track and die in a fire, yet it eliminates the absolute necessity of the hours long tweaking process to post decent lap times and get a good car feel.
