[CMasters] GRID now on STEAM - Page 4

post #31 of 51
This is probably the best racing game ive played... Pro Street got boring after an hour or two, but im two days into GRID and still having a blast playing it! The damage model is amazing, the AI can make mistakes (spin out, crash, underestimate speed etc), the visuals are great and the gameplay outside of racing is the most involving ive ever come across, with sponsorship goals (race without crashing for bonus sponsor money for instance) and the ability to form your own racing team...

Loving every minute of it so far!

Ah this game is still brilliant.

I freakin' love the Audi R10 TDI - V12 Diesel power! Oh my god it shifts... I managed to reach 265mph! Quite hard to control at that speed

Wait, people say DiRT isn't a racing game and now they're saying GRID is a racing game?

It's the same game, different tracks and car models. Why don't people see this?

Dirt isnt a racing game?...how could it not be? The games are similar.. but i think GRID is just a nicer, more refined Dirt engine and graphics.

BTW for those who want to make a "Team Overclock" I allready took it..wish we could put other people into our teams(not other AI drivers)

And a little off topic but for DIRT..when your doing the CORR truck series..does anyone know how to make it so you can drift more like in real life?..i know the Pro 4's drift alot around turns..but in the game its hard to drift without it completely slowing you down

Sim Racers Unite!

Does nobody care about physics? In a racing game Physics are the main thing, not like in a shooting game where you can get away with lack-lustre physics as long as it looks pretty and is playable, but I hate racing games that try to be everything. They'll all scream "i'm the best racing game ever and i'm the most realistic" when you really cannot be realistic when you intend people to play you using an xbox controller or a keyboard. A proper realistic racing game is one that recommends that you use a proper force feedback steering wheel and impliments it properly.

Dirt was god awful and this game is no different, in my opinion. Looks kinda pretty, though.
