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! ).

Graphically this is one of the most realistic car racing simulation games I've ever played aside from Sony's Gran Turismo series. There are lots of disciplines of racing to work with and lots of practice modes to brush up on your skills to become a racing master. My roommate is from Long Beach and when I showed him the Long Beach track on GRID, he remembers all the memories of where he worked and where his former apartment was etc, so if he can remember all these things I say the developers paid close attention to detail when designing these tracks. I use an XBOX 360 Controller to play the game so your experience may differ. If your looking for a racing experience that is different from the rest, try this game for sure. Just be sure to use the practice modes (Race Day) before taking on the story mode.

im Not a fan of racing games . (im very ultra extremely picky about everything sometimes)

I ONLY drive the Nissan Skyline in this game .

big fan of "Initial D" and Mount Akina . just for that this game is a must buy !

100/100 worth every ¢ent . I got more than what I expected .

this game is excellent . especially if you have driving equipment for the PC . ( can also be played with just a keyboard )

each run is Truly-Unique because you can take corners all sorts of different ways . or make a mistake where you didn't before ANYTHING Can happen ! this game requires the upkeep-of-focus & concentration .

you can really "feel" everything and become one with the car .

from the pull of gravity at high speeds , with manual transmission the clutch , shifting up and down perfectly to the topography of the tracks to maintain Top-Speed , timing-the-braking , knowing when to let off the gas-pedal all while paying attention to the road and trying not to force RPM's is enough of a challenge . Especially in the trecharous mountains of Japan .

This is a great training / practice platform . for beginners , aspiring racers & experienced drivers .

( I drive with my entire Hud-Disabled , Map, Position and Time-Clock disabled for a true to life experience ) Never a dull moment in this game .

so what are you waiting for ? Don't second guess yourself ! Buy this game ! .

Forget about driving in NFS and Irl.
Whenever you start driving in GRID, you'll realize how much you suck at driving.
Your driver skills are NONE.

Also, you'll die of a terrible crash.

+Fun arcady simulation
+No abs braking
+ Team management system
-Ugly yellow tint on everything

Its just a fun game. Not too serious but not too lax.

It's refreshing not having the option to enable abs braking. It adds an extra level of difficulty, knowing slamming on the brakes too hard will lock up your tires and render your steering input useless.

You get to create a paint scheme for your team, choose sponsors that reward you for winning, and hire a team mate. Its all stuff you really don't see anywhere. It really sets this game apart.

UGLY YELLOW TINT EVERYWHERE. I don't know why codemasters thought it was a good idea to make everything in the game look yellow from the sun.

One of the best racing games i have ever played. The car physiks are amazing. Dont forget to install the grafik mods for this game! With this mods grid looks still awesome after all this years!

With the program "GameRanger" you can still play GRID online.

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/

Race Driver: GRID is quite likely the last wholly enjoyable experience offered by a Codemasters title on PC. There's not really anything bad to say about it. Cars handle nicely, there's a fun variety of events (Drift and Togue in particular have eaten up a lot of my time), and the head-to-head battles with other Racing teams have some surprisingly excellent music. It plays well, sounds great, and looks very pretty. Highly recommended to just about anyone.

Great game. If you enjoy a racing simulation this will keep you entertained for hous on end. Driving is simple and very easy and quite honestly the games heaps of fun. Maybe it's just me but my favorite part are the midnight touges intense fun and much like fast and furious tokyo drift. i think the drifting on the game has a bit of a learning curve to it but it's not that bad but that might just be me. Buy the game, you wouldn't regret it.

花了26个小时达成全奖杯后决定完成这篇评测。
超级房车赛2是我第一个正版游戏,但预购奖励中的第一部却是我玩的最多的。作为一个N多年前的游戏,在今天看来画面不是特别出众,物理效果也不是数一数二,但是它的手感却是我玩过的娱乐赛车游戏中最棒的,极品飞车11-18无法与之相比。
当自己还在为别的车队效力时,渴望有着自己的车队,自己的队友;当自己驾驶着GT2组赛车排在勒芒垫底时,渴望有着自己的LMP1一骑绝尘,将所有人甩在身后。而这些都会在自己一次次启动引擎,一次次踩下油门刹车,一次次胜利冲过终点线后获得。
我喜欢开着Mustang在美国的楼宇中穿行,将一个个弯道化作一阵阵引擎的轰鸣;喜欢开着Koenigsegg飞驰在银石赛道,将一个个弯道化作一条条漆黑的胎迹;喜欢开着RX7穿梭在日本秀丽的群山中,将一条条弯道化作滚滚的白烟;喜欢开着Audi r10驰骋在勒芒的赛道上,欣赏着日出日落,聆听的人群的欢呼。
当我心情低落时常常开上几局解忧,看着一个个对手被我远远的甩在身后,听着队友与车队人员在无线电中一声声赞许,周围观众的一阵阵欢呼,所有的烦恼也被甩在了脑后。
codemaster希望你能再接再厉,继续做出更多的佳作

Pretty fun, fun, addictive, and has a great sense of speed. If your new to the GRID franchise or racing games in general, pick this one up over GRID 2 and Autosport as this game is LEAPS ahead of those two games.

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.
