Rage, theres a difference between a good arcade racer like the NFS series.. and just another crappy racing game with crapier controls.
I didn't say grid was bad, I just posted some of my key findings, and that is digital control (even in the gas pedal) = fail, and mistakes are pretty unforgiving. This is in part to its very sim like nature, but also because the game is so poorly written for any type of digital control. The fact its pre bound to the keyboard seems like a sad joke now.
