Amazon.co.uk Review

As the all-new racing experience from Codemasters Studios, creators of Colin McRae: DiRT™, Race Driver: GRID is all about the race. Every moment from the adrenalin rush at the start lights to the elation at the chequered flag – the tension, pressure, noise, and action.

Featuring only the most powerful race cars – current and classic, circuit and drift – players will compete to conquer the most prestigious official race tracks and championships and then go beyond to compete in challenging city-based competitions, through to road events and urban street races.

With races crammed with action and incident, high-impact moments will come at you thick and fast, one right after another: engine blows, tyre blow outs, tight overtaking, accidents, opponent cars flipping, spinning, collisions with other cars and trackside objects.

From humble beginnings, earning a few thousand dollars a season, build a feared and respected racing team with a multi-million dollar income and complete at dramatic race locations and dominate a multi-disciplined world of racing.

In Europe, race prestige Marques, including Aston Martin, Koenigsegg and Pagani, on the greatest official race circuits. Enter street competitions and race high-performance V8 muscle cars through iconic U.S. cities including San Francisco, Washington DC and Detroit. In the Far East, Japanese racing culture sets the tone where night races, including Drift racing, take drivers through neon illuminated cities and to outlying mountain roads.

As the antithesis of the box-ticking, plodding single-player race game, Race Driver: GRID delivers a diverse career mode in a persistent world of racing that provides each player with a unique experience as their team writes itself into racing folklore.

Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Received this yesterday morning courtesy of Amazon, what a stunning game this is! Brilliant gameplay, large variety of different racing disciplines (even some demolition derby thrown in), excellent presentation, stunning graphics, spectacular crashes, awesome damage modelling, AI that actually has the capability of screwing up... a superb addition to the racing genre. Can be a bit difficult (but that's me, as I refuse to utilise the 'rewind' feature that enables you to correct mistakes), but I don't like games that are too easy. Love the inclusion of the Le Mans endurance race, and they've got the balance just right with that level of endurance; let's face it, the endurance races in Gran Turismo were at best tedious, and at worst an absolute joke at literally 24 hours in length in some instances (GT4). Talking of which, imho this game makes GT5 Prologue look stale and, well, very boring. Purchased that game a few months back, played it for a few hours, considered it 'same old same old' and haven't bothered with it since. Unlike Race Driver: Grid, which really seems new, fresh and exciting. A highly recommended purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars What grid does that the others don't 28 May 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Grid is a great driving game but i didn't believe my mate when he said it was better than forza. After downloading the demo however i was very impressed by it. After tellling the game what your name is the mechanic always says it afterwards like "thats a big crash harry, are you alright." This is a small step but there is no dialogue in forza or pgr which makes it a nice touch. When i started my first race in a touring car i was amazed to see 20 CARS on the grid which made the first corner frantic as everyone bashed into each other. This was when i discovered the amazing and best so far damage system were massive chunks of car fall off and cars can barrelroll as well as be completely totalled with their tyres coming off.

In a san francisco street race i ploughed into a tyre wall and was impresssed to see all the tyres exploding in different directions which is better than the solid tyre walls in forza. Another nice touch is you can rewind several seconds before impact and try to avoid it second time round which is good if you make a bad mistake on the 10th lap as you dont have to completely restart. In single player you work to gain reputation. you get more for harder difficulty like manual transmission. in multiplayer there is a voting system were everyone in the game chooses there preferred option. up to 12 players i believe.

The cars handle well but can get annoying when you accelerate and just spin it. there is a cockpit view which is just as good as the pgr one. The main problem i have with the game is the game types like drift mode which you have to do and on multiplayer it seems that you are lucky to survive the first bend. overall a great driving game with many new unseen features. well worth the money.

5.0 out of 5 stars try looking at the options 28 May 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
i think this game is great
however, after looking at the other reviews on this page it seems that many people are critisizing(sp.) the handling.

now i have to admit that when i began playing i found the handling wierd. then after looking around on the options, the game comes with an oversteer option turned on and after turning this off i found the game to be superb.

the graphics are superb and the quality of the racing amazing, i would definitely recomend forking out 40£ and buying this. just make sure you sort out the options before playing ;)

Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had this game a while and I can honestly say that when I first bought it I thought it was good but that there was something slightly wrong with the feel of the driving experience. It was turning too sharply, was very difficult to keep the car in a straight line, and I just kept crashing. This was kind of spoiling the fun, and it wasn't until I started playing with the driving options and steering wheel settings that I found the game that I thought I was buying.

If you are having the same kind of problems then try this:
Look for the driving options and turn off all assistance except traction control.
Look for the saturation setting (it might be called linearity) in the steering wheel settings (if you have a steering wheel) and increase it from its default setting of 4 up to 7.
Switch on force feedback and increase the three other force feedback settings from 50% to 70%.

The above settings, for me anyway, has turned the driving experience into an absolute dream (in cockpit view)- perfect control and feel. Along with the astounding graphics, damage modeling, great computer driver AI and variety of events - and I don't think I'll need to look at any other driving game until maybe Forza 3 or GT5.

My advice to anyone is BUY this game, but definitely tweak the driving settings until you find your optimum, as the default ones don't do the game justice.

Hope this helps.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 360 racer to date! 21 May 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love racing games, and I've played he best the 360 has to offer, PGR 3 & 4, Forza 2, Burnout Paradise etc etc. I downloaded the demo of this expecting an average racing experience, and was very pleasantly surprised to find it's simply awesome!
Even at demo stage, it's plain to see that Codemasters have captured the spirit and excitement of racing more so than ever before. The features that made Dirt so successful are back - great graphics, super slo-mo replays, real-time damage and superb sound, all contributing towards a genuinely exciting racing experience.
People talking about spinning all the time must be using the handbrake instead of the brake, as I find the handling quite sublime, especially as it will no doubt be tweaked again before full release.
The 3 different styles of racing all have their own unique characteristics, and all work equally well.
The demo even offers online play where all the detail, playability and speed are impressively maintained. Everyone on Live was commenting on how good it looks, when they had chance to pause for breath inbetween the most hectic and spectacular online races I've ever seen.
My copy of PGR4 has already been traded for a credit note towards GRID. This game will rock. That's all you need to know.
