Race Driver: GRID

As I’ve said before this is the best racing game out right now. I was a complete Gran Turismo head for years, and I still have respect for the game. They simply missed the mark. While GT focused more on asthetics and realism, GRID focused on fun THEN realism, etc. Remember, it’s a video game not racing school. Emphasis on game. I forgot how to have fun while playing GT. When I found GRID I was overcome by the graphics that looked as if you were there. Not visually, but the way they position the cameras and the experience. You have to play to understand what I mean.

What I am not too crazy about is the multiplayer game play. The game itself is great, it’s the people that drive me crazy, no pun intended. There are a lot of gaming cowards, for lack of a better term. These guys don’t know the meaning of clean racing. Some, like the fact that you’re able to pit maneuver the leader out of position. Once this happens you head to the rear of the pack and you will never catch up to 1st, even if you’re the best driver. There is however, a mode where you can turn collisions off. This mode focuses on driver speed ¬†around the track. When you come upon another driver you simply “ghost” right through him. Only thin is you don’t get the realistic experience of passing and managing other drivers.

So, there’s something for everyone. I will say that you WILL want to throw the controller through your 50″ flat at some point, do please resist and remember to have fun!

P.S. I’m “dzynone” on the PS3 network if you wanna race!!
