EA Games is taking the iPhone gaming to the next level. Last time when they came up with NFS Undercover, they left everyone amazed.
EA is set to continue to the Trend with NFS Shift. With graphics more realistic than Driver for iPhone and Asphalt 5, they’re about to set groundbreaking record for graphics on iPhone. They had been teasing us since a while with the Trailer video. But often iPhone game trailers claim more than what graphics are possible on the phone.
How does it compare with others? It’s bringing Real Racing kind of feel to the NFS world. The drifts are going to be similar to NFS Undercover, but will bring more reality like NFS Shift for PC/PS3 bought. The Asphalt 5 is no match to Shift, asphalt goes too arcade-ish, Shift is one step closer to reality.
