Here's what I drew with my mouse after playing Need for Speed Shift. I hope you like my video game reviews that are not hand drawn - but written one mouse stroke at a time.

I don't normally enjoy playing racing games that don't involve flinging turtle shells at opponents. Need for Speed Shift is made for people like me. The growth from amateur to professional racer is presented coherently and is surprisingly addictive. By unlocking newer, greater cars and modifications with experience points rather than money, this game makes failure fun!

Need for Speed Shift adjusts itself to your abilities, so rookie racing gamers are having an equal experience as someone who's a veteran. Even as the game goes on and your skills improve, the challenge level is always equally pitted to what you can accomplish, it never leaves you feeling like you've reached the limit of what you can do. Truly, this game has blown me away. I may never like realistic racing again, but here and now, Need for Speed Shift has me loving it.

"My mouse drawn reviews are my gut reaction to whatever game I've just played, and, as a service to the intelligent reader, it will be dispensed with as many pictures and as few words as I can manage."

But so far we've not found a way to streamline our review output - there's basically too much of it. So, rather than dilute things for newcomers we have decided to live with the hubbub while helping new readers find the columnists they will enjoy.
