The best arcade/sim hybrid racer out there.acondie13 | April 23, 2013 | Review of GRID -
I've been playing quite a bit of NFS Shift and Shift 2: Unleashed lately. They're fun, but the cars drive like jet powered bathtubs. I started looking for an arcade/sim hybrid and found Grid. Bought it on GMG and Activated on steam with no problems. Right off the bat as I was setting up my profile it asked me to pick a voice for my name for radio chatter/announcements. WHY DOESN'T EVERY GAME HAVE THIS? Interface is okay, but wish there was mouse cursor support for the menus. Pretty well optimized and looks great for being several years old. Rarely dropped below 60 fps on my GTX 550 TI. I did run into a few times that it went to 10 fps for a second or two but only a few times. The rags to riches approach for campaign works well. I love the rewind feature and how other racers are adopting it. Overall very innovative and amazing physics and graphics. Very hard to find complaints on this one. Could hardly be more satisfied.
