Based on (I think) an Italian touring car series, the game is full of drivers and teams you have never heard of before. Unless you have the first game whereas they are exactly the same. There are nine courses in the game and most are fairly uncommon in the more popular racing games. Graphics are reasonable. Not great but they will do. No improvement over the last game then.
Racing games are all about handling and this is where the game has had some adjustment. Cars are heavy to handle and a bit sluggish, high top speed but it takes a few seconds to get there. They also sway as you try to correct. Braking is very heavy and you need to anticipate the corners carefully. In other words, this is authentic touring car handling. Well done. Also, racing in packs takes some time to get used to (if you are not a touring car fan like me) so picking the right spot to overtake and positioning your car carefully is the key. Great stuff. The wet track dries out as you lap and the levels of difficulty seem to be better spaced.
However, you don't get much of a game for your money. A single race mode, a time trial mode, a race weekend and a full championship with 9 tracks. That is it. Haven't tried on-line yet as there is no one on. Challenges this time have a driving school theme.
My only criticism is the same as the last outing. You get a 30 min free practice, and then a 30 min qualification period so that you can take part in two three lap races lasting about 6 mins each. What a waste of time! If you don't complete the qualification then you start at the back of the grid.Read more ›
I love it - uncomplicated menu, no gimmicks (or drifting), a dozen real and unusual tracks nicely realised, great handling model, fiercely competitive AI. Serious engine noise!
But no reverse gear or reset to track, which means that if you are not inch-perfect, your race is over!
I recommend getting the FANATEC shift set. It brings a whole new dimension to all the old XBOX 360 driving games.
Fabulous if you get it right, and, being about 10 times as hard to get the hang of racing while properly changing gear (real GT cars are all stick shift), 10 times more rewarding if you actually get a podium - never mind a WIN!
GRID was a bit of a let down for a lot of people, mainly because it threw away the old authenticity of the previous games and went for a more PGR kind of experience. I've got nothing against that, but I always longed for a game to bring back the glory days. Race Pro filled the gap for a while, but it is a ruthless sim, and ToCA was never about that.
If you are expecting anywhere near the quality of graphics and depth of the likes of Forza 3 or NFS Shift, then you are going to be one unhappy gamer if you get SV8 not knowing what it's really all about. Please consider yourself warned and don't blame us for wasting your cash.
If, on the other hand, you too long for the PS1 glory days, and those old classic touring car games, then this ladies and gentleman, is the second coming.
Oh, and for those who bought the first Superstars V8 game and thought it wasn't all that, then this one is indeed a lot better. Recommend you try the demo on Xbox live first though.

I have been playing Grid for a while now and have loved the way that you can control the car with the throttle and achieve quite a realistic balance to the handling. Read morePublished on 18 Nov. 2010 by Jo
