GT5 is an awesome car game, I have never played one better but as most of you will agree GT5 was a bit of a letdown considering the 6 years it took to make. Shift 2 is a pretty good game but it's no GT5. That being said I think there are a lot of really cool things in Shift 2 that I would like to see GT5 implement. For example.... 1) All the dirt and rubber on the road in Shift 2. This is just incredible and is something GT5 is sourly lacking. 2) The sound of the cars. Yes, every "stock" car in Shift 2 sounds like a race car which is unrealistic ((BUT)) as far as race cars or modified cars go, these cars sound fantastic! They have the spitting and popping of the exhaust when you let off the gas and the cars sound very close to how they should sound. I have a 2004 STI (It does have exhaust & headers, etc) and the Shift 2 STI sounds very close to how my car sounds. The STI in GT5 however doesn't sound anything like my car. 3) With GT5 when you drive using the outside view (The screen that just has the gauges and nothing else) the gauges are just plane universal gauges that look the same no matter what car you use. In Shift 2 on the other hand the gauges look like the real gauges from the actual car your using. This is something the GT series should have done a long time ago. 4) The sound inside the cars of Shift 2 sound much, much more realistic. You hear all the rubber and dirt hitting the wheel wells, as well as all the bumps and hits. Very realistic and very cool. In GT5 you get none of this. 5) (Talking about from the inside of the car) In Shift 2 when you crash it sounds and looks like you have really crashed. In GT5 no matter how hard you crash it’s an unrealistic thud with almost no visual effects. 6) Shift 2 also does a great job with car crashes from the outside. GT5's car crashes in comparison looks like a joke. So if GT5 could do some of these things in the next GT game I think it would be just amazing.....Or if Need 4 Speed could make the next Shift game look and drive like GT5 that would be great too. So what else do you think GT5 could use from Shift 2?
