Need for Speed: SHIFT 2 Unleashed Autolog Challenge as played by Vaughn Gittin Jr. and Matt Powers

If you needed any more reason to sweat out the wait for the new Need for Speed SHIFT 2 Unleashed video game, this trailer should drive up the anxiety levels a few notches higher.

The latest in a long line of trailers, this particular one features the game’s Autolog Drift Challenge being played by two of today’s most popular drifters, 2010 Formula Drift champion Vaughn Gittin Jr and Team Need for Speed’s own, Matt Powers.

Powers took to the controls first, customizing a Toyota Corolla to suit his whims. Despite all the tinkering, Powers’ performance was anything but stellar and not up to what he’s capable of in the real world, racking up a pretty pedestrian score of 324. To Power’s good fortune, Gittin. Jr. didn’t fare a whole lot better despite using his usual Ford Shelby GT500 . In the end, the champ’s 337 score was enough to drift past Powers’ best efforts.

Do you think you have what it takes to post higher scores than our seasoned pros? Scoop up a copy of Need for Speed: SHIFT 2 Unleashed when it drops in stores on March 29th, 2011 and find out.


Wow! It seems that even the pros got interested in playing this car game. I really love the name of this game for I want a need for speed ride!

Hell! I really want to try playing this one...but too bad that I can’t afford to purchase any of this! This car game sounds so interesting.

I am really looking forward to this game, and not only because of the autoblog feature. I am really eager to see how they have improved the controls in the game.

It’s actually not that surprising that Gittin and Powers would score poorly on the game itself. Think about it handling a real drift car is certainly different from driving one in a game.

Yes, they have featured Matt Power’s car settings, that’s definitely one nice touch. Now if they would only include that in the game so we can do our own Powers impersonation on the track.

I hope that they would include these into the final game. It would really be a great experience to be able to drive here using their own custom car settings.

Wow, that Autolog feature is really what I am looking forward to in this game. It is really a rather nice touch, since they give you plenty of options to customize the cars.

Just like what happen to the GT5, "Need for Speed" is doing the same old strategy, wherein they make a lot of teaser to make us drool! then suddenly move the actual released date, move then move, until we are not excited anymore! I will mark that March 29th, 2011 on my calendar!
