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...

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 (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

Race Driver GRID - Xbox 360 review - Pocket-lint


Gentlemen, start your engines!

Tonnes of racing styles, lengthy and rewarding career mode, excellent damage system

With a lengthy career mode encompassing a mass of disciplines, single player racing fans are in for a treat here; this racer certainly doesn't lack anything in the fun stakes

Race Driver: GRID- Xbox 360


It's very much a given these days that any top title has to be seen to be innovative. With each genre now well established, anything looking to cut the mustard doesn't just have to be bigger and better than what's gone before it – it has to practically...

But sometimes, refinement and development can result in a game that’s no less entertaining. Case-in-point, Race Driver: GRID. On paper, it doesn't appear to be anything special. There are no bikes or Hollywood weather effects to be found in GRID, nor...

Race Driver: GRID


When I-m reviewing a game, I have a notepad beside me at all times where I write down all of the salient points. These are positives or negatives focussed on items such as features, visuals, gameplay or just general feelings. In the case of Race...

Race Driver: GRID


Codemasters have become associated with successful racing franchises over the years; the company's own studios have brought us the Micro Machines, Colin McRae Rally, and TOCA series. A lot of the other games they publish have been picked up from small,...

An extremely enjoyable racing game, that manages to appeal to a wider audience without alienating those who've grown up with the genre. Every motorsport fan should play this.
