Year released: 2011
Developer: Slightly Mad Studios
Following up a successful game like Hot Pursuit wasn't an easy task by any means. Fortunately, EA and Slightly Mad Studios managed to find a way. By no means are we comparing Shift 2: Unleashed to Hot Pursuit-doing so would be ludicrous as one is an open-world racing game, while the other is closed-circuit.
Shift 2 expanded on the original Shift title by introducing new features such as a helmet cam view was introduced in the series to give gamers a heart-pounding experience behind the wheel. It also featured night-time racing, allowing players to test their skills and reaction time in the heat of the night. While the title received a range of different scores from platform to platform, all in all the game was a huge success.
