I managed to pick this game up on sale for $4.99. If you are looking for an above average, arcade-simulation racing game at a budget price, look no further than GRID.

Pros:
  • Despite being a 2008 title, the graphics have held up incredibly well for being 7 years old (with the added benefit of many of today’s low-spec PCs able to run it).
  • Extremely detailed damage visuals.
  • Engaging career mode with a modest yet sufficient number of tracks.
  • Very responsive AI, which is arguably better than many of today’s racing titles. AI difficulty level can be set for each individual race.
  • Unique race types, such as drifting races (though these can be challenging).
  • Great value for the money. Even if you only play 5-10 hours, it still provides more entertainment than a 90-minute movie ticket.

Cons:
  • Limited number of cars - but the cars which are included are fan-favorites.
  • Unrealistic, yet manageable handling. Almost all the vehicles handle like American muscle cars, and prone to rear tire skidding. My guess is that the developers tried to develop a physics model somewhere between pure arcade and full simulation.
  • Non-functional multiplayer. The official MP servers are dead. There are some 3rd party unofficial servers which are active, but I haven’t used these.
  • Lack of Steam achievements.

Overall, if you are in the mood for doing some racing, and don’t mind a somewhat arcade-like racer, I would highly recommend this game. Similar games include Need for Speed and Burnout Paradise, but GRID is probably the superior one of the lot.
