Borrowed this game from a friend for the PS3.


Quite possibly one of the worst racing games I've ever played. I've put quarters into racing games better than this.


P.S. I've gotten first place in just about every race. Its stupid how wreckless you have to be to win. One of the most unrealistic racing games ever.

Sounds like it is your driving that is unrealistic ... you don't have to be reckless to win ...

I would welcome a swift reply, but I do not demand it.
I found that Particles at Ultra HIgh in the Advanced settings would cause 2 or 3 locations on a few tracks cause slow downs. I dropped the Particles to HIGH and left everything else maxed anyway and it is smooth now. I also play at 4xAA.

You know, I have to compare games (I'm sure everyone does that), and my very first observation was the moment I played Grid. Right at the beginning, the very first course with the viper. Feels like the Seattle course from GT............................................

my favorite racing game is Live For Speed.... Which I am extremely good at. You can't get any more realistic than that game.

Grid's realism is worse than Cruisin USA




I'm surprised you can't do backflips and 360's in Grid. At least then I would get what they were trying to accomplish.

That makes what you said in the first quote even more ridiculous ... if you know how to drive why are you being so reckless in GRID in order to win ? ... as I said ... you don't have to be reckless to win ...
