8/10
GRID is a racing game that did not let you drive like crazy and crashing all the stuff in your way (just like in Need For Speed) nor it is too realistic to give you penalty for driving through the grass or disqualified you for just losing a front bumper (like in F1) . So this game has a nice balance between realism and arcade, that is what makes this game is enjoyable and fun for casual gamers and racing enthusiast alike. This game also welcomed newbie or pro racing gamer. For newbie you can turn on all the driving assist in the game so the driving will be more simple and easy to learn, or if you feel like racing game is your everyday life you can turn off all the driving assist for more complex driving and customize the driving options so the car will perform like what you expect.

As for the graphics, although this is an old game (realeased in 2007) the graphics of this game is still feel good and comparable to current game graphics. The best thing about the graphics is the car crash effect, it looks so realistic !! see it for yourself here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fH2KUrNow7s

But for me, the best thing about this game is that all race events in the game are based on actual official racing event, from the prestigious 24 Hours of Le Mans to the brutal American Demolition Derby (so don't expect any ilegal street racing in this game! ).

Well, I am officially the worse driver in this game. I float so much it's like drifting, and I am bad at drifting. It's a pretty fun game, but I am too use to NFS that it's quite hard to get use to any other kind of driving mechanics. I am button happy lol.

By far one of the best racing games. By no means a simulation, its provided me with hours of fun. Drifting is a blast (although tricky sometimes) and demolition derbies are just glorious carnage. There is enough track diversity that they never get old, but they still feel familiar.

My only complaint is that it can feel like a grind getting podium finishes to rank up/

Great game, better than grid 2.
The best thing in the game is the drift, at frist you will fail alot, but when you get the hang of it its lots of fun, the combos and high multiplers that you know you will lose if you crash.

It is not a brilliant game! Not even for an arcade one. The cars seems to float over the road and the A.I. has no idea where you are, he simply wants to go on the raceing line and it will bump and push the player irationally. When the car goes offtrack it spins around back wheels as it is pin-pointed on them, even with traction control on. Difficulty spikes are often in this game, one race you win easely and on the next there is a team that run past you very quick, even though you are in the same car, on a straight line. As pro's it has a lots of cars and classes, cool soundtrack, nice menu design, graphics (for it's time).

If you think you're good at racing games because you're good at NFS. ♥♥♥♥♥ please! This game blows all the ♥♥♥♥ you do in NFS. This is the real ♥♥♥♥. Racing as fun, competitive, violent and awesome as it supposed to be. Grid is where real racing gamers do.
I played NFS before and thought I'll be good at this. DEAD WRONG! This brings the reality of racing, unlike NFS gives you a ♥♥♥♥ing "tank" with sealed side roads. You aint have none of those ♥♥♥♥ in here. and THATS why it's 10 times better,

This is a really fun, compelling "simcade" game. (Ugh... I hate that word, regardless of how appropriate it might be.)

Play on Normal difficulty.
Turn off all assists.
And play with gamepad or steering wheel.

This game was obviously designed with console controllers in mind. For those of us who can't afford a $50 exessory, you would think the obvious choice for steering would be the mouse. I would anyway. Locking the players into one key for left and one key for right is something you do for very basic flash games where subtle differences in input make no difference. Certainly not on a high end game like Grid. Certainly whey wouldn't make a bone headed decision like that.

(Hint: Yes, they did.)

I spun out of control on the second track when I turned all the assists off. Driving in sand is easily the worst thing to ever do. I rage quited after 100 restarts. Decided to play Bejeweled 3 instead. 10/10.

Casual arcade-driving game.

No proper grip or suspension handling, not a proper simulation in any way.
Graphics are pretty but again there's no way to skip cutscenes or audio monologue.

There are better choices available.
