    GET EVERY DETAIL OF THE
    PRO CIRCUIT EXPERIENCE
    The sweeping skylines of the urban landscapes… day and night driving… the roar of engines, the squeal of tires, the crunch of collisions. And above all…speed, speed, and more speed. Nothing was overlooked to deliver the most realistic racing experience possible.

    TAKE A REAL RACER’S POINT OF VIEW
    Thrust yourself into the driver’s seat of a high-end performance car, and see the race as it really is. Get the hyper-real POV of the in-car cockpit, as well as the brutal perspective of the first-person crash dynamic. Keep your grip as you push yourself to the edge.

    MAKE IT PERSONAL IN MULTIPLAYER MODES
    Shift into either local WiFi or live Bluetooth Multiplayer across half a dozen modes. Match your racing skills against your personal rivals, and show them who really owns the road.

    CHOOSE MUSCLE OR PERFORMANCE, OR BOTH
    Grab the wheels of the fastest, hottest, and most powerful cars in the world. Select from an array of cars that feed your needs. The Audi R8 4.2 FSI Quattro…..Porsche Cayman S….or Subaru Impreza WRX STI… it’s a car lover’s fantasy at your fingertips.


    UPGRADE, CUSTOMIZE, AND COMPETE
    Personalize your car’s performance and styling features. Fine tune performance with Top Speed, Acceleration, Tires, Suspension and Nitrous upgrades. Also add custom details like spoilers, rims, specialized paint jobs, and body kits.

    HOW YOU DRIVE IS WHO YOU ARE
    In the ultimate expression of the true driver’s experience, DRIVER PROFILE tracks your evolution as a racer from event to event. You develop a persona based on your skills, style, success rate, profile points, and badges you accrue. Aggressive or precise? What kind of driver are you? The game will tell you.

    I'm just going to say the game will last you a long time. It has taken me a little close to forever to complete the first city, let along the other 5 or 6 cities. By the end of the game, I don't think anyone would complain about the game being too short or too lacking.

    A remarkable iPhone racing game. With licensed cars, control options that should make most people happy, and a very cool yet mostly superfluous driver profile and performance tracking system, Shift is a must-have for fans of the genre.

    Even if you're not a fan of racing games, or don't drive to work in a Formula 1 car every day, it's hard to not get caught up in Need For Speed Shift's exhilarating pace.

    Need for Speed: Shift offers the best single-player racer on iPhone to date, with in-depth customisation and superior handling that almost make up in full the limited multiplayer offering.

    It's not my favorite app, but it's definitely one of the most polished in my library, and absolutely takes advantage of the fantastic iDevice hardware.

    Hands down the best iPhone racer since Real Racing, Need for Speed Shift offers a superlative single-player career that will keep your hands glued to your iPhone for hours.
