i have real racing, and would gladly trade it for nfs shift. Not that real racing is bad, its actually really good in graphics and is more realistic, but i think nfs is slightly better due to customization. Also i am a little more of an arcade racer fan too. But i dont like the whole on rails thing with nfs, so i am still not buying it. But out of the two, nfs.

My favorite game is doodle army, so check out the awesome game's twitter

RR is more of a sim, while Shift is a hybrid of sim and arcade. Both have about equally good graphics (in my eyes) and great controls. Both have lots of content. If I were you I would buy RR as it is cheaper and about equal to shift...and I have a burning hatred for EA mobile

Need for Speed: Shift is only On-Rails if you want it to be, you can turn all of the assists off and you can do pretty much whatever you want!

I also really like NFS:S, because I like both Sim and Arcade racers, Need for Speed Shift is a good mix of both of them.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

In my opinion NFS: Shift is the better game but the fact is that Real Racing is the better game.

I'd go with real racing because I'm more of a sim fan than an arcade fan, but nfs is good too.

I can see the real racing fanboys drowning in their tears because deep down they know nfs shift is the winner
