    Shift 2 Unleashed is another polished title from EA and sits at the top end of the racing genre on iOS. Sim fans and arcade racers alike with both get a lot of joy from racing around the many tracks on offer and the upgrade system is impressive.

    Shift 2: Unleashed is bigger and better than its predecessor, with a lot more variety of races and excellent single-player career mode.

    In this iPhone version, Shift 2: Unleashed can't take advantage of the wide iPad screen to maximize its excellent first person driving experience, but the overall results are still excellent in terms of quality: the tilt controls work great, they're completely customizable and there are plenty of races and modes to play with. However, the lack of an online multiplayer is really disappointing.

    A little better than the first Shift for iOS – new tracks, new cars, very similar visuals and a bit more fun. [September 2011, p.76]

    Featuring new locales, new vehicles, improved graphics, and Origin integration for social gaming elements, Shift 2 Unleashed doesn't bring a lot of innovation but it does continue to provide a high level of racing excitement that the casual user can enjoy.

    Need for Speed Shift 2 is a sequel that improves on the original, but not enough to make it a must buy.
