Racing games have been immensely popular even with the SNES. Games like Mario Kart and Top Gear were very popular on the SNES. At present, you can enjoy more realistic and highly addictive racing games, especially when you choose to buy Need for Speed Shift. What exactly is Need for Speed Shift? Need for Speed Shift is the latest racing game of the Need for Speed franchise. But unlike the other Need for Speed games, you might say that Shift will bring you an entirely different experience. Why? Because Need for Speed Shift has an aim – to make the racing game more realistic. And with the help of Mad Studios, the game looks more realistic as ever.
