  1. The DS version of GRID seems to be more than a simple cash-in. It's unfortunate that the game suffers from technical difficulties. There’s a lack of speed, no damage physics and the camera viewpoints could cause the player some problems. On the good side, you can design your own circuits, you can race online and there’s a solid career mode. The sheer fun, catapults this game above average.
  2. GRID is absolutely your best bet if you’ve got a craving for racing on your DS (sans turtle shells and banana peels), and it’ll keep you busy for quite some time.

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

Excellent grpahics and environments, as well as plenty of different types of challenges to put you through your paces. 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 »
