Race Driver: GriD Review

 

Welcome to Grid

GRID

 

For years, the Race Driver series has been revered for its robust amount of racing types that allow players to experience the thrills of many different racing disciplines and for its exceptional quality given the vast quantity of racing styles...

Series vets with fond memories of the Pro Race Driver/TOCA games on previous systems should pick this up immediately, and if you're unsure about it, there's a demo available for download that'll give you a good idea as to how easily most of the cars...

Race Driver: GRID Review for the XBOX360

 

The Prince of Persia returns… as a race car driver.

Fantastic damage modeling; Easy to learn; Slick menus; Flashbacks are a lifesaver

or an annoying crutch; Not very deep gameplay; Lack of course and vehicle variety

Race Driver: GRID

 

The engine's purring at 6,000 RPM. You can feel the heat coming off the worn-out tires, desperately hoping they can take this last bend and then the final straight. You look around and see the sunlight glistening off your rival's paint-job in your...

This is the premium driving title out on the 360 at the moment, and a must own for any fans of the racing genre. When buying a car in real life, it isn't about the miles per gallon, but about the smiles per mile. This game will definitely make you...

Race Driver: GRID

 

Deftly proves the traditional car game is far from exhausted

Beautiful cars ; Spectacular crashes ; Fun on your terms

Not realistic enough ; Not arcadey enough ; Replays take too long

None of this amounts to anything beyond more or less in-game cash, an easily acquired commodity anyway, but it pushes up the sense of involvement and control enormously. The next race is never some mandatory imposition - you choose what it is and what...

Race Driver: GRID Review (Xbox 360)

 

It took me quite a bit of time to come to grips with what Grid is. Let me get that out of the way right up front. Codemasters, the developers behind a long line of simulation-style driving games on consoles appeared to be focusing on the arcade genre...

Great sense of speed. Cockpit camera is fantastic. Grid World Mode is good

Online modes are like an afterthought. Stable of cars a bit light. Races feel a bit repetitive

Really Great Game, Horrible Support

 

Could be better if it let you run every car set on every track, and/or let you select from certain multiple car groups as an option and had bigger car sets (some have only one), but still great.

Best racing game on PC. The gameplay is great. The graphics are great. Has a lot of replay-ability. If you get some friends together on an online game it can be a blast. Once you get your own team in single player, you can customize your vehicle look...

Codemasters products are notoriously glitchy. I have 5 licences and two of the 5 PC's would randomly kick (like I was cheating) me out of mutiplayer games. Codemasters support had me doing a huge amount of useless busy work, OS patches and network...

Consumer review by:

great game!

 

Good game but cheaper elsewhere. And, for any of you who heard it was too hard, that only applies if you never played a real game in your life. Not meant to be a simulation game. KEYBOARD ROCKS!

awesome cars, sweet tracks, good graphics, good crash modeling

I completely AGREE with these Comments!!!

 

For those who can't get their gamepad to work with this game, just do a web search for "gamepads that work with grid" or something similar. I found a gamespot forum topic that told me exactly what to do(can't remember my exact search). No problems...

Pros: It reminds me of the Gran Turismo series which I loved on PS, PS2, but haven't tried on PS3 ; The graphics are incredible, very modern and light/reflections look awesome ; The cars feel very smooth to drive, not too difficult , not too easy....

I stay up late playing it! My eyes are bugging out ; Other Thoughts: For those who can't get their gamepad to work with this game, just do a web search for "gamepads that work with grid" or something similar. I found a gamespot forum topic that told me...
