Packed with the most powerful race cars - new and classic, circuit and drift - players compete to conquer the most prestigious official race tracks and championships then beyond to compete in challenging city-based competitions, and then on through to road events and urban street races. The drama, the rivalries, the aggression and the crashes; this is not a game about collecting cars or spending all of your time in the front-end tuning suspension settings or designing liveries. Codemasters wants to make racing exciting again. Gamers compete on Europe's greatest official race tracks in prestige Marques including Aston Martin, Koenigsegg and Pagani. Iconic cities across the U.S, including San Francisco, Washington DC and Detroit - each with their own atmosphere and events - play host to diverse street races, where high-performance V8 muscle cars set the pace in aggressive, closely fought pack competitions. And in the Far East, Japanese racing culture sets the tone where night races, including Drift racing, takes drivers through neon illuminated cities and to outlying mountain roads. There's also the opportunity to compete in races that operate on the fringes of legality in the back streets and industrial areas of Yokohama. [Codemasters] Expand

    Many will balk at the game because it doesn’t offer a million different models of car. Those who do are missing the point. Grid is all about the fun and excitement of the race. It’s racing with a capital ‘R’ minus the frustration. You won’t find a more fun racing game this year.
  2. Is GRID the next big thing in the automotive game genre? I think so. The game has incredible arcade form, and I think the Flashback feature is one of the best new ideas we've seen come from this genre in a long time.
  3. GRID is a must-own classic that begs to be played now and will continue to hold your interested throughout the year.

    GRID's jostling pack racing and slithery, varied events are almost entirely pure driving pleasure. And that's what it's all about. [June 2008, p.98]

    There are plenty of other racing games on the market, but Grid captures the soul of the track like none other.
  6. All in all, Grid is a lot like candy, delicious in small doses, but too much could leave you feeling sick.
  7. 75
    Think of it as a racing fling, not asking you for any long-term commitment, and letting you walk away once you're finished so you can pursue something with more depth. Still, it's fun while it lasts.

    This is the racing game I have been waiting for. I am a big fan of TOCA racing and GRID delivers in every area. The graphics are incredible. This is the racing game I have been waiting for. I am a big fan of TOCA racing and GRID delivers in every area. The graphics are incredible. Gameplay addictive once you master the controls. I bought Gran Turismo Prologue when it came out and was quite impressed. GRID blew it out of the water. Its now for sale on ebay!!! GRID is the BOSS!!!!! Expand

It absolutely delivers on all levels. It's a cross between a arcade and racing sim. The graphics are absolutely the best ever seen in a racing game. The game engine is second to none. The car damage is so cool looking, when you crash into a wall or flip the car you can see it all in glorious slow motion replay all you want as the car breaks and smashes... incredibly real looking. The game itself is spot on, the driving is very real to life feeling. And they focused on around 50 cars, the cream of the crop, so there's enough variety but you're always driving a wicked car. Bottom live, this game is FUN. Tons of fun and re playability. A MUST PURCHACE!! The PC Version is great too! Expand

I would have given it an 8.5, if possible. The graphics are solid, although there's potential for a little more detail in some of the open courses. Gameplay is very smooth with no noticeable glitches. Online play is a blast, especially drift battles, F1 racing, and demolition derby. I think this is the best racing game currently on the market and has the potential to hold that title for a while. Expand
