PCars has been out a few months now, but what of its older sister Shift 2.... It after all shares the same DNA.

Personally i think Shift 2 was the most underrated unappreciated racing game of pretty much ANY gen of console. Maybe because of the 'Need for speed' bit or because people hate EA or that set ups for cars were gash from stock, or because it was trying to do things differently from Forza and GT....

Works conversions of the cars, unrivaled car interiors that CHANGED as you upgraded!! Windscreen inner reflections off the dash BEFORE Turn 10 could manage it (took them till next gen Forza 5 and still not as well done).....

I've been on other forums and its almost a dirty word even to PCars fans... WHY?

Its awesome and i STILL play it now (not the drift bit though) Wonderful tracks and great racing....

So any love? Was Shift 2 thee reason you got PCars? Anyone still play it? Other games proudly have sections still for the former games... Shift 2 the lost unloved game... but not for me.

Tried the demo(may have been shift 1), hated the car handling. I couldn't move from the left of the track to the right of the track, on a straight, without loosing the backend. Gave up with it after 2 mins. Maybe it was controller settings, but I didn't get that far. It was a shame, as the pre-release vids really made it look awesome.

loved it to death,for me still the most convincing atmosphere simulator there is,I'm not talking about the handling but the sounds,the crashes and the cockpit helmet cam...the only game it almost felt like you were really driving a monster,driving the nurburg was scary as hell but I loved it and yeah..biggest reason for me getting Pcars was seeing it was the same studio,I like Pcars but if I'm honest I loved the driving in shift 2 better (again not talking about just handling)

Give me pCARS handling/physics and all the visceral elements of the Shift series and I'd be in 7th heaven. :triumphant:

Many happy hours in both 1 and 2. I loved the Evo 9 on Nordschleife on shift 2. (I think it was a 9)
The graphics and the sounds were spot on, and perfectly matched. The handling characteristics were pretty decent for an arcade/console leaning racer. Very immersive, lots of fun. I'd always hoped it would get the sim treatment.
Prayers answered, Lo and behold. PCARS.:)

Yeah - I loved 2 but hated the twitchy handling (was a pad user then on XB360).

Second car I ever tried in that game was the Pagani Zonda Cinque Roadster @ Monza - the NOISE of that thing was brilliant and staggeringly loud.

I loved the atmosphere of it all and it was extremely immersive - although I think I find the balance in PCARS overall to be better. And of course the handling isn't a twitchy dog in PCARS as it was in Shift 2 (again - only talking as a former pad user - ironically I use a wheel now on PS4)...

The steering lag made this game unplayable for me, I completed Shift 1 and played Shift 2 for a few days left it a couple of months but the developers just left it to rot so got a little bit of money back on it and never looked back.

This is sort of my point though, how many people got PCars on XBOX one and said the same? Under that game (shift 2) is a stunning driving sim, Ian Bell and his team will know what i'm on about. What really killed Shift 2 was the snobbish "need for speed arcade" hate.... that name (NFS) on a sim driving game is a hindrance.

Besides GT5, Shift 2 has been my racing fix on PS3. Although the cars felt kind of floaty with a controller, the game was still one of the best of its genre.

And there's one particular thing about Shift 2 that really raised the bar for me - and thats the fantastic replays :)
Dear Team, what happened to these action packed angles? :frown-new: Gone for good?

Shift 2 suffered a similar problem to pCARS: absolutely awful out-of-the-box joypad controls. It tainted Shift 2 for the whole of its life and has done a lot of damage to the perception of pCARS from first-time users. It's a shame. A real shame, and quite perplexing how SMS got it so badly wrong in both games.

This is the thing, Shift 2 was ruined for many people due to out of box set ups and and only ever worked properly with a wheel, even now if i try to play shift 2 with a controller it sucks! There is no smooth modulation of the steering input via controller. Its like SMS make the best racing sims in the world...but YOU have to find it, like the craziest ever easter egg...

Which is why like no other games with both Shift 2 and PCars one person can be playing it and having the worst experience ever whilst someone else is saying its heaven...

I'll admit I totally missed Shift initially because of the NFS branding, I had no idea it was a serious sim. There I think is the first issue. As a standalone game away from the NFS umbrella it probably would have caught a few more eyes.

The other is that I never liked the handling at all. Everything else about it was pretty great really, but I couldn't control the cars and gave up on it very quickly as a result of that.

I love both shifts. When the first came out I had a pretty good PC and played the game with all graphical settings to the max. what a joy. It was the first game where I could hear the transmission and the secoundary sounds of the car interior. I trully loved it. Shift 2 was even better, my problem was the platform, I didn't have the mad ass pc anymore and the XBox 360 version had poor graphics and made me sick after few minutes playing.

I think the NFS badge hurt shift a bit, because some NFS fans didn't read the box before buy, they saw NFS and assume they could ride the walls in full nitro mode with all the underbody neon in the earth. :D

bodyshop
08-07-2015, 14:44
True, and visa versa the SIM snobs just saw NFS and thought 'arcade'. For me when i got Shift set up right and used a wheel its the closest i've come to that feeling i got with Toca 2 all those years ago.... i think after the polish of Forza games it just had a rawness and energy and a visceral gaming experience.
Just think SMS should be proud of that game as with work you can find the game they made under the dodgy set ups and naff controller settings.
I think also, so far, next gen after Xbox 360 has been a bit underwhelming. The step from Xbox to Xbox 360 was massive for me, the step from 360 to xbox one...so far, slightly meh.

I really liked Shift 2. Ok, handling is a little tricky, but i like it anyway. Specially drifting. Its awesome to drift a Nissan 280SX and Silvia S-15 until rear tires explode!!! A nice thing about Shift 2 is start a carrer with any standard car and upgrade it until it turns into a race car. Even interiors changes in this upgrades. I also really enjoyed the game GRID (the first one). You can pick a design scheme for your car an aplly the colours you want. Sponsors offers come according to your performance in career. You can choose whos your main sponsor and the order of importance of others in choosing the space to be filled in your car. And the drifiting...oh my god, the drifting!!! I miss that kind of race.

That is precisely my experience of the game.

I really wanted to like SHIFT but detested it. When I realised that I wouldn't be able to unlock the Maserati MC12 GT1 I bought the unlock from PS Store. Raced for 20mins and never put it on again. I was fearful that PCars would be SHIFT 3 so was very weary. Thankfully it is quite different.

But your wrong, shift 2 is awesome and its dripping in PCars DNA. And clearly there are people who have done the same as you did with Shift 2 with PCars, i have mates who wont touch PCars again.

Yes that weird phase gaming went through when every game had to be like this OTT American crap, "yo dawg! GO GO GO!!" ... "TOTALLY AWESOME DUDE!" "WAY TO GO".

I still play it when I want to take cars around that are not in Project CARS. But my game is heavily modified to make it look less EA and more pro sim. I think I got my best combo of mods in that make the game as realistic as it can be by its limitations (old BTM tire model that has the low speed issues...) Either way I always thought it had great potential to be a sim for the NFS line of products... Shame it has no pitting, that would be the only feature I would request out of the game, if it had pitting it would be a complete game to me, sucks to get a puncture/blowout and have to start the race all over.... Project CARS overall feels much better as far as handling and the car physics are concerned, but I do believe that S2U is more polished and has a lot of little details I still miss in Project CARS. Both games are amazing in presentation in my opinion and kudos to the SMS team for all their titles.

These photos were taken with my 660Ti (MSI) at 4K DSR resolutions with the mods I have applied.

I love the gear change animations on Shift. Looks so real. I think it's because when the car is near optimal revs the driver puts the hand over the shiftter and waits for the player command.

I drive with no hud, so I shift by sound. AFAIK they had to "pre-shift" animation in place. The only time the shifting animation played was when you actually shifted the gears (paddles or hpattern/seq if you had a G25)

The game had some weird delay when using a controller (on PS3) which killed shift 2 for me. I tried to like it but just couldn't get past the lagging input from a controller with the game. I tried every controller setting available on the console version, but was a issue with the game itself.

That was my huge fear with PCARs, hoping it wasn't going to have the same issue as shift 2 did with controllers, Luckily it does not (at least on PS4).

Dorny
10-07-2015, 17:41
Loved the game hated the physics and lag in control input, and seeing how physics and control input is vital for racing games, it killed it for me. I always got the feeling from the game that it wanted to be a racing simulator but had to be arcadey to fit the Need for Speed brand. So you had two different styles of games clashing with each other and not in a good way. For example it wanted you to race properly but also encouraged you to ram other drivers and the AI was MENTAL and far to aggressive

So when I saw the original design idea for Pcars which was basically "get the shift 2 engine, fix the input lag and gear it towards simulation" I was sold and backed it.

But I don't agree with the most underrated racing game of any gen of console, that for me would be Motorstorm

Some Pcars fans don't like the dirty word of Shift 2, because in the early days of Pcars and still today, people would see it as Shift 3 and ARCADE and call it shift or arcade and some people dont like it when simulators are called the dirty A word by other people.

I've got both shift games. The games has an great ai, the car selection was great too and tye feature that you can tune your car from amateur to works cars was so great. The body kits and cockpits are phantastic. But the game have one big issue the strange steering behaviour and the tiremodel. It's not sim and it's not arcade. Ive got the games here and when I try shift 2 I stopped after 20 minutes because steering and tiremodel are not comprehensible. some gt1 cars you can't drive on a straight line. So much great potential was given away with that steering and tiremodel.

MortICi
10-07-2015, 18:17
99% of the issue with the game was the soft setups for all the cars due to bump tracks, combine that with very negative caster defaults and you had super twitch cars. Once you tuned the car properly (in some cases you couldn't due to setups being messed up) the game behaved, but then the tires had just too much grip in my opinion. Either way with the right mods its a whole different game on PC. Consoles got screwed.... :(

I pretty much sorted all cars even works converted FWD cars, once you could see how much they messed up the stock settings you could sort it and suddenly its awesome...thats the point really, only 20-30 percent of players ever bothered with it long enough to work out the bummed set ups and get it playing right. As someone finaly admitted few posts above...PCars is Shift 2 engine so is Shift 3 in effect. But to me Shift 2 isn't a dirty word....its why i looked foward to PCars... Now Mr Bell...about those works conversions in Shift 2.....any chance in PcARS?

I rest my case....the AI are a bit bashy at times but they do overtake each other much more than in PCars, you really feel your apart of a race with them. IMO.

I dunno, I tend to think that Doug did a good job of coding the AI to act somewhat human. In a lot of the scenarios the AI present I ask myself if I would do that, or if another driver would do the same. I have yet to come to a "no" and always say, yeah I can see that happening, or I see why the AI did what it did.

I do agree though that the AI here are more than eager to overtake and don't chooo chooo, which poses some awesome races.

But meh, I do love both games, they have a special spot in my game pocket and I flip between the two. I might do another recording to showcase the mods I have installed.

Shift 2 is the SAME, its better on a wheel and you need to spend time fiddling with settings and car set ups....... difference is Shift 2 cost me 5 off ebay 3 years ago and i still love to play it... PCars cost me 40 and i play it but wish i'd waited 3 months in and picked it up cheaper.

The physics (especially the tire model) is completely different to Shift 2. They're totally different games, driven by the same graphics engine.

I preferred Shift 1 over Shift 2. Though the handling was very floaty in both games. I liked the livery editor, but there was this bug where some of the decals would shift from where you originally placed it after saving and that caused me a lot of frustration. I also wasn't a big fan of the videos of the pro drivers in Shift 2, especially Vaughn Gittin Jr. I played the shit out of Shift 1. I think I got every star except the drift ones that I didn't bother with. I played Shift 2 for a while, but I think I lost interested about maybe 25% through the game.

Shift 2 had potential to be a great game, but unfortunately it was published by EA.
The game is playable after adjusting controller settings but it never felt as good as I wanted, it feels like there's lag in the steering. Shift 2 has good graphics, good engine sounds, good career mode, good car selection, best track selection on console at the time, nice performance customization (especially works mods), decent visual customization. I still go back to Shift 2 every now and then for stuff that isn't available in PCars such as Autopolis, Suzuka, Lotus 111R, Acura NSX, Audi TT, and some of the GT3/GT1 cars. If SMS adds those tracks/cars into PCars I'd be really glad and never have to go back to Shift 2 again.

Its the resounding complaint. The PC version was much more playable due to the modding community, and I think the console community was way more vocal in the "it sucks" outcry. I had it for PS3 and PC, and pretty much played maybe 1 or 2 hours on PS3 before sticking with PC only once the mods started to come out that improved and fixed some of the issues.

The presentation of the game visually is what attracted me the most, it wasn't static like other racing games (GT/Forza) that seemed very plain and not exciting.

I think Xbox360 versions of multi-platform titles always tended to look better. You're right, the PS3 version looked a bit grainy in comparison. I loved the 360, shame they ****ing broke all the time.

I loved Shift 2, It's one of the reasons that I got Pcars.
The handling was a bit rough but I persevered and managed quite well. I always thought that it would have been better with a wheel (I had the MS wheel but no table to clamp it to). I thought the same about Pcars, and I was right. A wheel makes a helluva lot of difference.

There's a number of games that are 720p on PS3 and 1080p on Xbox360: Shift 1 & 2, all F1 games, all Grid games, all Dirt games, MotoGP 14, Fifa, Ultra Street Fighter IV, Unreal Tournament 3.

Its even better now on PC since you can 4K DSR the game + SweetFX SMAA (and some HDR :P) injection and you have 60FPS of jaggie free super awesome visuals :D

I can't stop hopping into the game to play some of the general road cars, just got a mod by Yuki for the Spirit R RX7 (base model is the S2 RX7, just body mods to match the Spirit) and its a blast driving it around Tokyo! :D

However, I did have an awesome race in Project CARS @ Road America, ClanAOD seems to be setting up some nice lobby races recently and has had nothing but good drivers join in. I would of had P2 if I hadn't spun it on the stupid kerb which I knew I was going too hot into! :P

I played it for like hundreds of hours and modded the hell out of it because of the handling issue. :p
It was fun, kinda like sim racing for beginner, perfect for those who wants to try a sim racing for the first time.
That game is my reason to try pCARS.

Now I believe SMS still has those japanese cars they made in shift 2, I wish they would add them to pCARS someday.

I love the old muscle cars in it. They drove like boats and it was glorious, I think they felt the most accurate :)

I have good memories of Shift 2 when I had the ps3, the graphics were very realistic and the car and the soundtrack was so good. There was a multitude of car choices and a lot of circuits. A game worthy of a car simulation

I thought about getting Shift 2 in the latest Steam sale, but Tages-DRM thingy that can potentially make the game unplayable is a huge turn-off.
