Shift 2
Just in case I am biased because this is an EA product ...

Has anyone else played this game on the PS3 and found it to be ... a disappointment (word I want to use withheld).

Graphics are poor, many frame rate issues, poor controls and poor racer AI.

I could barley drive the intro race due to juttering ... like I was online with a bad connection. :(

All in all this game feels like it is still in Beta! :eek:

I loved Shift 1 ... this is terrible.

OK, that makes sense. I thought it was just me.

The graphics have sort of a PS2 feel to them.

Maybe there's a steep learning curve for the controls ... ?

Compared to other racing games (Shift 1 included) these racing controls are not good.

Told you to buy it on PC, the guy that have it seems very happy with it.

Picked it up yesterday for PS3. Totally agree with the graphics. It's like watching a youtube video, especially in the cutscenes. It seems many games are being released now in beta stage. That was one of the fears when the XBOX360 included HDDs.

Settings for the wheel need adjusting of course, but for me (G25) I think I have it the way I like.

I find this far more accessible then GT5 so I'm very happy with the game overall.
