Ok, So its not quite a SIM but looks fun nonetheless.
Graphics look sick, Especially the In Car view!

Ok i just bought this game last night and well Im not thrilled. I dont have a wheel for my PS3 yet so I cant really judge. With the joystick it feels real arcady to me. Im always drifting corners and even with the beginner cars taking a turn at 50mph the ass wants to kick out. I dont like the fact they make the dash blurr as you go faster. Kinda hard to see the tach but I use my ears mostly for that anyway. Curious as to why they did that. Never have trouble seeing my gauges in RL at high speeds. Maybe on a motorcycle cause your head is wobbling all over. Guess Ive been driving to many sims on my pc.

You're kidding right? I don't think anyone is comparing shift to rRfactor, Live for Speed, or anything from the GTR series. That said, I actually enjoy this game a lot for what it is. I've got the full version on PC and the demo on playstation. I will say that it felt a little more arcade-like on the PS3, but I think you'll find that a lot of driving aids are turned on. Even on the PC I had to do a bit of tweaking to get it to have the right feel.

Pretty cool game, but the experience in actually being in the Lotus on the track is soo much better.

First thing I did was turn off all driving aids but again I only have the controller for PS3 thats why I was asking if it was worth getting a wheel. Im use to palying rfactor and other sims on pc and dont want to dump $200 on a wheel if its still going to feel like an arcade game. Reviews Ive read they are calling shift a sim, the reason why Im asking. I messed with the helpers and stuff and found it a bit more enjoyable. Wish Forza 3 was on PS3. Ive heard a lot of good things about that game.

Shift is most definitely not a sim; much more arcade-y than that. Forza 3 is the most sim-like experience currently available on a console, in my opinion, but even it is arcade-y compared to something like rFactor, GTR Evo, LFS, etc.

If you are used to playing sims on pc surely you've got a wheel? I've read that there are plenty of logitech wheels compatible with the PS3, but I think wheel support varies from title to title... I'd say more but I just got a PS3 so i'm learning too!

I have a G27 and I run Shift on PC sometimes. I still enjoy sim racing more since the computer is so aggressive in Shift it kinda angers me.... lol
