Welcome to 2009, the year of bizarro racing!

First, Need for Speed: Shift got a 9.1 or something from IGN. That surprised the hell out of me. I expected it to be a bomba like Undercover or whatever the last one was.

And now, IGN UK has given a Gran Turismo game a 6.8. GT PSP to be precise. The score is blamed on both not having an online mode, and not having a career mode.

Wow. What kind of crazy year is this?

Pretty odd but maybe its because its a handheld I guess we’ll have to see about Grand Turismo 5 now if that’s bad holy crap.

Interesting gonna need to rent shift then.

Not really crazy at all anyone who was following NFS Shift knew it would at least be decent b/c it was being made buy the guys who made GTR2 and every preview for it since Feb has been postive.

It would have been the year of awesome racing if a new F-Zero came along…

I can’t wait for ModNation Racers next year…

sigh

Totally deserves that 9.0 :lol :lol

WTF not to mention a slew of other bugs like controller options not being accessed, PS3 version shipping without damage which was patched in later, and the game randomly giving you win screens!!

Random win screens are awesome and should be standard in every game.

“Like ZOMG, Need For Speed sucks! It doesn’t matter which NFS game it is, they all suck!”
