He is dead accurate, of course. Like a clock. Endgame is great, but I don't know, I listen to some Menza era songs, then Drover era and Nick's style was precise also, but kinda more interesting. Nick would change a pattern of bass drum/snare a bit in 2nd verse for example where Shawn plays the same pattern.

But like I said, nothing against Shawn. I love the guy. I just find Nick's style a bit more suitable for myself and Megadeth.
I use drums, cymbals, sticks and hardware!
