wOWSERS


I hope GRID isn't spelled out fully as Get Rid though...

Codemasters work has been quite a bit consoly so to speak.. i hope they put some good physics onnit... on the other hand.. who cares. if i can have it run like that.. i'd go for the crashing anyways!

Looks very pretty, wonder if this rig can run it as well, by the makers of DIRT rings alarm bells with me, i had DIRT on here for at least 20 minutes before consigned it to the Betterware shelf  :twit:

It does look good from what they show...Kinda of a teaser,because not really a full blown vid of game play.Just herky jerky slo-mo vid. I think most folks could make a vid of the worst game they know in that style of video & make it look good. Keep the fingers crossed.

It looks like what Gran Turismo should be.....But like Steiny....Think it will be arcade like :think:

if its about the gameplay level like Turismo but not wacked and arcade-like ala Need For Speed then i think its worth it. i really hope theres a cockpit mode as im so used to that...Forza Motorsports 2 did not have it... for those who havent played Turismo 5 Prologue, the in cockpit view is nearly unusable. its hard to see out into the enviroments.
im really intrigued by GRID, i just wanna see more footage.

can't argue with the quality of the graphics... but no cockpit racing shots, and handling looked a little arcady for my tastes... still, here's hoping!

Quite frankly codemasters lost my support ages ago.. Toca 2 (not the racedriver, this was before that crappy series) is the last really good racing game they have released.

TRD3 is actually terrific fun IMO, just mind your expectations. It's great for when you come home after a hard day at work and just want to go out and blow people's doors off...plus drive a new track every 3 laps, hehe.

But I think GRID might be too NFS-ish  ... even for people still currently playing Toca, I've heard a fair amount of concern voiced over it, but there's no indication Codies have.

Grinn... the official website is www.racedrivergrid.com

in other words.. part 4 of the series.. just noticed that one trailer is the spectacular one.. the other.. well.. i think i saw some rapid moving steeringwheels/wheels.. might indicate that this will be a full on Arcade again..  specially since it's gonna come out this summer on all the consoles and the PC... i'm configuring a pedalset with my keyboard for steeringaxis just in case...

Alright well it looks really good.  I hope it'll have a realistic physics mode.   thumbs up  One mode for an arcade fan, and one for Simulation. 

God it looks pretty!

well i doubt that that vid was done for the pc game as it will also be available for ps3 and xbox360.  i actually think this was for ps3, but heres hoping the pc game will be a little more fps friendly.

may look good, may have decent physics

but the thing that may turn me off is, i think i read somewhere that there is only online play for 12 players, that puts me off it straight away.

That was a great game :yep: nothing much worth getting from Codemasters since then... looks bloody good thou, which is some hope... maybe?

But then their games generally alway look good, they just don't live up to it in the other areas that matter.

has anyone played the GRID demo? im npt sure if the demo is available on the PC yet...but im playing it on the PS3...so far its fast and crazy...the damage modeling is rough ...in cockpit view as one crash gets your windsheild smashed and cracked so your view is really hard to see...another crash and the windsheild is gone... too many crashed and your race is over...there are 3 demo races...one in a BMW(20 car race), one in a Nissan (drifting challenge- yuck!) and the last a Mustang GT (13 cars)... the last race is great jumping and brutally landing around the hilled streets of San Francisco... graphics are top notch...not as hyper real as Gran Turismo 5 but really nice... i gotta say its a must buy for me when it comes out in less than a month.

Hmmmm I would never put GTurismo as hyper real, but i guess it is simracing for console.

Liking the grid a bit better as i installed it on the XP OS and had my FFB back.
But still I must say..... when they use games like this and call them real racing games and all thats just fine.
But when is there going to be a SIMRACER that can be like this? damage model like this, smoke like this. graphics like this?????
Why is there a need to make all of these games as a action packed arcade runner?
You can make the same action pace in a SIM, you can have much better competition in a SIM right???? And just add the driving AIDS for the kids.....

Just my nickle n dime here, but anyway..
Prob will not be a hit on my PC.
Physics ain`t that far from COLIN DIRT and grphics much the same(good though) really dunno what is new in this game.
Fun for a little while though.

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...........

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.
