SHIFT 2 Unleashed on PlayStation 3 features a huge roster of racing modes for you to get to grips with once you have purchased your first car from the in-game garage. First up is Drift mode, where you are scored by how fast and controlled your drifting is on a track.
Driver Duel mode pits you against a ranked driver in a best-of-three battle, whilst Endurance mode requires you to make it through 60 minute races that test your driving skills and stamina. Other modes in SHIFT 2 Unleashed include Time Attack where the goal is to beat a lap record, and Race mode, where the rule is simple - cross the line first.
The remaining modes are Hot Lap, Series and Eliminator. In Hot Lap you are given three target times to beat and only a few laps to do it in. Series mode sees you take on multiple races across various tracks. To win, you need to end the Series event with the most points.
Eliminator requires you to stay ahead of the pack in a frantic battle on the track. If you trail in last place at the end of a lap, you're knocked out. Each of the events in SHIFT 2 Unleashed feature numerous variations including starting position, number of drivers and even the choice of cars available to you.
