  1. A game that pushes the DS to its limits and though it's a simulation in nature, GRID always puts fun ahead of cold accuracy.
  2. If you're after a good racing simulation on the DS then GRID is one of the best out there. [July 2008, p.97]
  3. a great handheld racing game. Compared to Race Driver, it's more like an expansion pack. It's very similar, although more refined. But if you haven't played the original, this is the one to get.
  4. If you’re a racing fan already enjoying GRID on your console but has a DS that’s craving for some love, this version is definitely worth picking up.

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 »
