looks like it plays with a good impression of speed. I love driving games, but I have to admit, do I really want "another" one.

Looks good - dying to see how it plays.

My eyes probably but I can't seem to see any career type mode. Or is this the origin mode? That seems online.

Seems EA is following Gameloft HD pricing.

Now, since EA isn't going universal like Gameloft, and this is a separate app launching - oh say, 5 months after iPad 2 - couldn't they have at least optimized the HD app for iPad 2?!?

This game looks no better visually than Hot Pursuit.

I appreciate EA being on the AppStore. They just need to pour more quality and polish into their iOS offerings. People will buy them, just don't half ass them.

Dead Space, was an fine example of near perfected polish.

I'm starting to wonder if that was a fluke from EA. A one off, will never match that quality again app.

How does it compare to Hot Pursuit, Asphalt 6, Real Racing 2 etc?

I really wanna grab this, but my iTunes credit is down to £3.00 ($5.00). Therefore, being limited to just one download tonight, should it be Shift 2?
