Shift 2 Unleashed on iOS today - screenshots

EA's fast-paced racer looking pretty decent on Apple's tablet

iPad game releases remind us of the old days when you didn't know a game was coming until it was either out or just a few weeks away. Those were the times.


EA's fun racer, Shift 2 Unleashed as arrived on iOS today and we've got a batch of iPad screenshots to mark the occasion.

The iOS version features 20 Quick Race trials, 40 cars, multiple game modes and over 40 events. You can also customise your cars with everything from acceleration, tires, and suspension upgrades to nitrous boosts, spoilers, rims, paint jobs and body kits.

EA top dog John Riccitiello told press recently that consoles, which "used to be 80 percent of the industry as recently as 2000", are "today 40 percent of the game industry".
