Physics are absolutely different from colin tbh, you actually have to use throttle control and proper braking in GRID, things you had to pay no attention to in DIRT. Also DIRT had simply amazing amount of grip even on gravel, in GRID you loose the tail immediately if you dont pay attention.
So definitely not similar, and most definitely not close to it! Better handling than in any of the Race Drivers before! Thats why i was so surprised by it, its been ages since the cars actually feel good in Codemasters game! lol


If ya say so...
Still not happy with it.
But I guess a full game should be more fun anyway.
Like I said. It is fun............. for a while.
I really do not see it last.
Just wish for something different for ones.....
Reminds me of the track-racing in prostreet...........

Maybe I have to figure something out, but the steering is crap with a G25.  thumbs down

Dont worry.. it was too when it was Race driver 3.. after a while they came up with a g25 patch.. at least that's what Python told me!?


Haven't tried it yet as i'm pretty sure ill be pissed off at first too because it will feel soo much better with keys.. or a pad(not that i have one?!)

I did my self a favour and played it a bit more when not hung over.

Kinda grows on me a bit. Will be looking forward to some more content indeed.
Not sure if I will buy it yet, but I will keep an eye on what it will contain.
And If the ONLINE system works, I am sure that some online race/smash with buddies could be fun.

Think you need to play it a bit to really understand the way the controls and reactions you have will handle the car.


What I did was this.
Played PRO STREET and switched to the GRID demo. GRID MUCH BETTER.
Played CM DIRT and switched to the GRID demo. GRID STILL BETTER.

So well...... Maybe not the best thing to go from, but I think it can be somewhat of a surprise.
