Race Driver: Grid is all about the race - that period from lights to flag; full of tension, pressure, noise, and action.

Grid will take players to beautifully realised and dramatic race locations over three continents to compete in an unprecedented variety of racing events. Packed with the most powerful race cars - new and classic, circuit and drift - players will compete to conquer the most prestigious official race tracks and championships and then go beyond to compete in challenging city-based competitions, through to road events and urban street races.

In Europe, race gamers will compete on the greatest official tracks in prestige Marques including Aston Martin, Koenigsegg and Pagani. Iconic cities across the U.S. - including San Francisco, Washington DC and Detroit and each with their own atmosphere and events - play hosts to diverse street races. In the Far East, Japanese racing culture sets the tone where night races, including Drift racing, take drivers through neon illuminated cities and to outlying mountain roads.

Race Driver: Grid - Special Edition, exclusive to Play.com, includes the game, a "Making Of Race Driver: Grid" DVD and a hardback artbook

    I think this game is absolutle awesome and a must buy. Yeah the ai does bump you and try spin you off the track but this game is soooo addictive and fun to play. You dont have to be experienced to play this game u just have to know how to race and brake when corners come up. I find this game the best driving game i have played in ages gran turismo needs to learn a few things off race driver: Grid as gran turismo is gettin boring.

     a ps3 must have

    A major disappointment this game i have to say, after playing and pretty much mastering the demo off PSN i bought this thinking i was in for some top quality fun but i find the game incredibly frustrating. The AI of the other drivers may well be described by Codemasters on the DVD as realistic but i would be more inclined to describe it as a nothing more than a cheat.

    Once you get in to first place you are constantly nudged up the jaxy and sent scuttling off the track only to rejoin in last place, now i like a challenge in a game (I loved the original Wipeout and that isn't what you would call easy) but Grid never seems to reward your efforts. Unfortunately i prefer driving games from the bumper view and in Grid this is not implemented very well, the camera angle is too low and you need the reflexes of a horny Ninja as the track comes towards you are a terrifying pace with a view too low to see the corners and curves, the bumper view isn't much better either being nearly the same angle but with a big clunky bonnet in the field of view.

    I should love this game, it has looks, it has lots of variety and when you ain't getting shunted up the sphincter it is awesome but it has that terrible AI so only 3 stars from me.


    Well, Well, Well what a difference a setting makes, turning off the stability control turns (for me at least) Grid in to the highly playable superb racer i thought i was buying in the first place. Now when you get shunted you do not go flying off the track and you can shunt back and give as good as you get. Because you are no longer in fear of flying off and hitting the wall through no fault of your own all the other points i raised above now seen so trivial, yeah the game moves at an electric pace but it is funny how it is so much easier to handle when you are not thinking to simply stay on the road.

    I have upped my score to 4 stars, Grid is a stunning game but my initial disappointments prevent it from getting a 5.
