Stunning, absolutely amazing game!!!

This is a must buy for racing fans, i've barely been able to put it down! Top notch graphics and gameplay to match. Career mode works in tiers and seems lengthy!

Also, Le Mans 24hr racing.....:D:D:D:D

Yeah, just had an hour on this and it's pretty sweeet!

05-30-2008, 02:44 PM
Yeah I agree, it's not too bad!

05-30-2008, 03:28 PM
Yeah i agree i've not been on it for long but the career mode already has me hooked. Great game looking forward to trying multiplayer soon.

05-30-2008, 03:35 PM
Is the career mode very similar to Dirt in terms of the tier setup? Does it look longer than Dirt? Any sort of story to it?

And also, how does the separate region selection thing work?

05-30-2008, 03:53 PM
There are a little over 50 events to win in the career mode. Selecting them seems a little more open than Dirt seemed. But still not wide open. 3 different areas with 3 different license levels each. I am not very far into it so I cannot give a decent time estimate.

Definitely a good game. The single player seems very lengthy, even longer than Dirt by the looks off it.

Hi guys! Id say career mode is probably going to take 15-20+ seasons! Im in season 6 and nowhere near the top of both leaderboards :o! Loving the BMW 3-series touring car, v.impressive! Still hooked on it days later! Really addictive game!

Seems to combine the tracks of pgr/forza with the graphics and damage detail of Dirt!

Only got 2.9m as well :o! Still another 7m to get the Audi R10 :)!

I may have to pick this up then, I wasn't a huge fan of driving/racing games until I tried Burnout.

it is simply a great game. Career is rather length aswell as addicting!, it had me up til 1.30am last night. i find Le Mans quite challenging when it goes dark

online isnt bad if you race with people who want to race, rather than little kids who just try to ram everybody off the track.

06-01-2008, 11:08 AM
Yeah this is diffinetly my favourite racing games, there are so many different racing stlyes and the handling is spot on on all of them. The online is awesome too, the only thing that ruins it a bit is the retards who cant race and drive round the track backwards because their losing.

The style I like the best at the moment is drifting, I was really poor at it when I first tryed it on the demo, but I've got a lot better now. I have never saw a better representation of drifting in any other game, it's difficult at first but it's really rewarding to pull of an insane drift and watch it on the replay.

so how does it compare to Forza then.....?

06-02-2008, 04:29 PM
its not as boring as forza,but the one problem i have with it is that now that i have fnished global i have 108mil that i have nothing to spend on :(

06-02-2008, 06:44 PM
Fantastic racing title. Around this time, last year, I was addicted to Forza Motorsport 2. Now, I think, for 2008 it is certainly GRID (well, so far anyway). http://www.xbox360achievements.org/forum/images/icons/icon14.gif

06-03-2008, 12:01 AM
well, i think this game was OK. The crashing is driving me nuts, i just wanna get a few hundreds gamer points. Just rent the game for a week or so, thats enough

06-03-2008, 12:02 AM
so how does it compare to Forza then.....?

If you played FORZA2 alot, you might feel the controlling is so unreal

06-03-2008, 12:32 AM
Thats good to hear, i'm looking forward to receiving my copy later this week.

oh and wxfwxf.....try not to double post ;)

06-04-2008, 05:14 AM
yeah looking foward to playing it to but to bad this is america land of the brave home of the games not coming out on their dues dates

06-04-2008, 02:25 PM
so when does it come out?

06-04-2008, 03:06 PM
The Game is Awesome, Single player is looking long.

But Online wins it for me. They stopped people from going round the track the wrong way by making them untouchable. If you drive the wrong way, you cannot collide with any cars coming forward. An excellent feature. Just fine by me.

All i have to say is Ridge Racer. People went the wrong way all the time. Annoying.

A few bugs. but hey you can't win everything

06-06-2008, 07:19 AM
God i cant stop playing this game. MUST BUY!!

06-06-2008, 07:09 PM
well, i think this game was OK. The crashing is driving me nuts, i just wanna get a few hundreds gamer points. Just rent the game for a week or so, thats enough

stop sucking so much....

06-07-2008, 01:17 AM
so when does it come out?
Came out on the 3rd. I bought it on release but have not put it in yet. Played the hell out of the demo and thought it was spectacular! Once I finish Ao2 this game is going to get a work out! (between Rock Band sessions anyway ;))

06-07-2008, 01:21 AM
I love this game but I must suck because I find the game retardedly hard

For these who ask themselves if GRiD lasts longer than DiRT, I have to say that I finished the DiRT Career in 2 days, and the championships in 1 day, which make a total of 3 days (910 out of 1000G). I find GRiD to be MUCH MORE lasting than DiRT, as I've been playing for 2-3 days now and I'm not even halfway through.

I played the demo and I'm going to purchase GRID but being a Forza addict especially Drifting in Forza, I agree that the controlling in GRID is completely unreal, and the drift angles aren't that realistic. I do not like that you cannot tune in GRID either, that would be a plus.

06-11-2008, 01:12 AM
Agreed. Barely been able to put it down. I'm just a little upset I rented it instead of buying it but money is tight and I had to play this game.
