Glad they included an option to turn OFF collisions! Great game now that they included proper preset for the Rumble pad 2.

wow, i must admit, i was very skeptical until i tried the demo. the euro race felt kind of sim like (to an extent), the drifting race was exceptional and fun, and the american race was a nice blend between the two (obviously without points for drifting). is this a common theme throughout the game? if so, i'm going to have to pick this up, it's refreshing to see a blend between arcade and sim.

There's only just enough tracks and all of them are on tarmac.
I feel a bit sorry for the people with nVidia cards getting blue screens considering I'm able to run it with all video settings on high 4x multi sample at 1280x1024 on a 512mb X1950pro.

Finally completed the game.
Feels like it ends too abruptly like there should be something more.

Oh well playing it on serious diffuculty.

The las difficulty level is challenging at times, aids on.

IMPORTANT

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=VNPC4CRB

Vista hotfix, no idea what files it updates, but it fixes GRID (and other D3D9 games), if you get BSOD in GRID you need this hotfix, this is only for 64bit vista sp1, if you want 32bit fix, you need to look for it.
