I like the sound of Aggression driving this is what I tend to do in racing games anyway so getting rewarded for it will be a plus.
Is there any car modding/customization in it at all?

Sorry guys, there are modding/tuning options. Added some info to the review. Assuming you've bought the right upgrades you're able to fine tune loads of stuff and if you're into custom decals you can combine simple shapes to make more complex stuff - beyond my skills though Smile

I expected around an 8. Cant justify buying this when i already have dirt 2 so think i will wait until it comes down in price and then buy it. Dirt 2 is so good im ok about it lol

I’ve been playing NFS for over 10 years, and I think this is the best edition yet…the cockpit cam is great, and the physics are amazing. This is my first NFS on a next-gen system, and I’m blown away by the realism.

Also nice to see a good soundtrack, I was thrilled that they used Rootbeer’s “Under Control” – that’s definitely an awesome under-the-radar jam.

I have got NFS Shift on the PS3. I couldn't agree more with this review to be honest.

Well deserved 8 and its pushing towards a 9 for me as it has a FORD ESCORT COSWORTH! Lol

Love them cars. 2 litre engine with the output of 217 bhp. Tuned outputs have gone over 1000 bhp.

It looks great. I'm definitely interested but I do have one primary concern. Are there only two camera viewpoints (cockpit & external) or can I choose bumper or bonnet cam? I tend to prefer racers using either of the later mentioned. I've read nothing indicating that there is multiple views but i'm hopeful all the same.
