    There are only a handful of racing games that can even hope to compete with NFS: Shift, and in my opinion (after playing the top 3), this one beats them all for style, substance, and a quality racing experience. Easily one of my top 5 games of the iPad launch lineup.

    It delivers a sense of speed unmatched on the iPad right now that will have you moving not just your hands, but your entire upper body as you swing into dangerous curves. I love it when a game grabs me like that.

    They built a simple, intuitive game and it's one of the first actually enjoyable portable racing games that have come out in years.

    Overall, Need for Speed Shift is a really good racer with a lot of variety. The only things that keep it from being perfect are the really linear career mode, and the limited upgrade system.
