post #81 of 165
I will 1 month to play this.. wait for the patches and a steering mod.

I hear this game is a bit heavy on the old powersliding thing...

Yeah... it's really easy to powerslide = does it automatic for basically every car... Then automatically grips itself like traction control is always turned on...
I could be wrong or hopefully there is a more "professional" setting that makes the handling much more realistic...

Another thing I noticed on my 360 controller (Windows Wireless one) is that the vibration setting isn't working... Might be a drivers issues, but I will be testing out my steering wheel later today.

If I do not get the feeling of the rear end becoming lose on this game with my steering wheel, then it will be a big downfall for me, as i'll simply go back to Shift 2 Unleashed...

Comparing NFS Shift to Grid I have always thought brought out two types of gamers. The people who liked a combination of Sim-Arcade (Shift) and the Arcade-Sim lovers (Grid)
i disliked the way Shift would seem to take a big step back in playability while having pretty graphics. the damage was not there and it seemed like a simplified version of Race07.

Grid I found to be more approachable and social, me and my friends still play it to this day over tunngle, and it is by far the best racer, we only wish derby was added to. (flatout 2 filling the derby gap at the moment).
Oh and WHY ON EARTH showdown wasn't grid derby with multiple cars/events, I will never know, what a missed opportunity.

I was going to wait for grid2, but found it gifted on Steam, happy though, the extra content should be fun.

As for the people hating Grid2, there seems to be a lot of no cockpit view comments, from many of the same people who said they wouldn't buy it without cockpit view, so I ask... Have they ACTUALLY played the game? rolleyes.gif


**edit***
I just noticed what a rambling half rant that was.... ah well ... smile.gif apologies.

DD as DLC. one that I would gladly pay for, and that certainly is saying something as I am a veritable grumpy pants where DLC is concerned.

*should*, but remember... a release often follows a filter style pattern and different clients get it unlocked at different times. It's kinda like DNS propagation, the change is made at X time, but may not be visible for a while.
