But there is far more in the game than the demo, ie, Drift racing, etc.

BTW, to anyone using a 360 pad and hasn't tried it yet, have a fiddle with your control adjustments in the 'pause' menu. I found it made the car feel better in cornering by setting steering linearity to '0'. I also reduced the brakes to 60% to reduce locking up under heavy braking and increase control. Setting the 'dead-zone' correctly helps too. 10% was about right for me.

It's not easy is it. I tried and tried for ages and it payed off. I linked a load of slides together and got over 1,000,000 points . It's easier than the cone challenges in Gotham, though.

I have not done MP in the full game I did try it in the demo. I am just getting the hang of all the types of racing first and then give MP a blast.

I tried the full game. With Saitek P990, it was very good but when I tried Logitech Rumble pad 2 it was awful!! One click to the right can send my car to HELL!! I don't know what's wrong with this game! They need to patch it to fix this issue and to allow controllers to navigate through menus.

I know this is an arcade racer but they went too far. The F1 license is definitely in the wrong hands
Only person on this website who's opinion I listen to in regards to racing games.


Looks like I won't be buying Grid.
