Probably one of greatest driving gamesSzyMan1993 | Nov. 19, 2013 | See all SzyMan1993's reviews »
This game has everything what a racing game fan needs. Good graphics, an amazing driving system, customizing and a lot more. Even after GRiD 2 came out i still stick to this game, due to a bigger selection of cars. The visual form does not dissapoint and can bring a lot of fun for anyone who wants to drive a car for a small and decent price.
The closest thing top perfectionPvtmini | Oct. 31, 2013 | See all Pvtmini's reviews »
In all my many years of gaming, I have never ever been captivated by any game, like I was with Racedriver: GRID. Back in 2007 (when it was released), the graphics were out-of-this-world, and to this day they still look amazing!
The cars in the game, are equally amazing, and can be set up for whatever playstyle you prefer, be it hardcore simulation, or a more arcade-ish feel. And even if you somewhere in the heat of battle should make a mistake, the nifty "flashback" function, allows you to rewind time and study what you did wrong. Then, at a time of your choosing, you may then start the race again (like, 10 seconds before you crashed), and this time clear that corner without crashing. THAT is a VERY usefull thing when you want to learn how to corner properly! :D
Apart from that, the damage physics of the game still rival some of todays top titles (not going to name them), if not surpass them all together. Every little bumb you make in your car, leaves a dent and a scratch. And if you're unlucky (or have the hardest difficulty enabled!) that little bumb may have huuuuge consequenses.
And don't even think about slacking. The AI is ferocious and will not give you an quarter (unless they are on easy. In which case they are... well... easy). They will gladly loose a wing to get you 3 spots back. And they do it.
All in all, this is the perfect combination of hardcore simulation, childfriendly arcade-style racing, and beautiful graphics and physics engine.
If you ask me, there is no better racing game out there. Defo a must have, for all would-be racers!
It never stops being fun!lowsuperasder | Oct. 24, 2013 | See all lowsuperasder's reviews »
In this game I found the perfect balance between arcade and simulator driving: the physics are very realistic, the player can feel the car well (though the handling of each car doesn't vary much) and it is a good game to learn proper cornering, since even if we fail, the Flashback can take us back in time to a point from where we can go again, and slow down a bit more, and the many levels of difficulty allow a wide spectrum of possibilities and learining new moves. The graphical side is also nice, the terrain details and shadows look very good, not to mention the cars which look just amazing. The singleplayer career lets the player drive cool cars for other teams, meaning that even in the very beginning we can experiment with the best wheels available, making the first steps more fun. The only thing Racedriver Grid is missing is some cool soundtrack, in my opinion even if the game focuses on realistic events, it could give a more dynamic aura.
A great, realistic racing game!mattpatterson | Oct. 13, 2013 | See all mattpatterson's reviews »
Most racing games these days forget the fundamentals of being a racing game. Whether it's just out of control driving where it is not realistic what so ever, there is no car damage, or there is too much driving assistance automatically set to the game. This game provides a proper racing challenge and can deem to be very difficult at times. I love the way you can choose your name and they say it throughout the game! Little things like that is what keeps this game at the top. It's also said this is better than Grid 2 so keep that in mind when purchasing!

Great racing game, and even now (5 years after it was released) it still has something to offer. I was kinda dissapointed with GRID 2, because I think that this first Grid is better. This is still an amazing driving simulation with good destruction model, and it's on sale for such a low price, that you just have to buy it.
