Unless you only want to play online; that's quite a mess with peeps using you as barrier... :)

Just did Melbourn, the feeling of speed is fantastic im posting times Webber would be proud of and im a very average gamer.

I think it beats Forza just for that out and out impossible "no way will it stick to the track" at these speeds but just like the real F1 these cars do stick, its a great game.

For a real "How the heck does it stay on the road?" moment try taking a run round Spa 180mph+ through Eau Rouge, or round the 130R at Suzuka.

In responce to the original question, as others have said, if you are a fan of racing or F1 then it is a good buy.

I really like it, it can be very challenging if you want to (settings), and it looks great!

To me worthwhile, but there are a couple of negatives:

- to try to avoid bugs with the pit system you will be choosing a less than optimal pit strategy in every race. It makes a nonsense out of pitting and tyre strategy because you are always at a disadvantage.

- despite the best attempts to pit safely you will still hit the "lollipop" bug or the "no pit" bug about 1 in 3 races, typically losing about 20 seconds. So either you accept that penalty or restart multiple times.

Hopefully they can fix these bugs, although I have some doubts. It's not like the QA could be so bad as to not notice that they were getting held up for 20 seconds in the pits, so I imagine they already failed to fix it and decided to release anyway.

I think it's a definite must buy for any F1 or racing game fan. There are a few bugs but nothing that spoils the experience of the best F1 game to date.

The only problem i have seen is the freezing during races nothing else

i was a bit weary buying this game because the problems ppl were having plus codemasters said they would patch GRID quick after release and it took a while so much time i sold it.......

the game is good really nothing else like it its weird so many ppl had problems but me only the freezing

Its 40 well spent i say but im a fan very time consuming if you can go the distance

If you like track raceing as oppossed to street racing, then yeah this is a near perfect game. Expecially if you have a wheel and peddles haha :)
