Brief Game Reviews: GRID

GRID is a car racing game that isn’t about letting you know what’s under the hood as much as it is about just putting you behind the wheel of a cool car. It’s also a car racing game that isn’t about real physics as much as it is just feeling fun to play. It’s not quiet Daytona in it’s level of arcade-y-ness, but it’s no Forza or Gran Turismo either. It’s really fun though. It excels at traditional car racing. Getting a turn just right and placing ahead of two competitors in the process is rewarding. Placing in the top three in all races in a circuit certainly is too. The game falls apart when it comes to open-wheel racing, and (much worse) drifting competitions, neither of which it handles as well.
