    Call me a purist, but I like my traditional racers on consoles -- not my DS -- where I can sit on my couch, marvel at the crisp graphics, and feel the feedback coming into my racing wheel as I drive along the road. But if you really want to race on the DS -- and it's your only viable option -- GRID works as intended...mostly.

Altough graphics aren't that great, some cities look really impressive. Full Review »

Astounding technical design makes this game feel unlike any other DS racing title. The only weakness is the reliance on a digital D-pad, thus making subtle steering impossible. Full Review »
