GRID Ultimate Edition (PC): Having some fun on the Track!

I have to admit i was thinking 'Here is another racing game with the usual track racing blah blah'. After playing GRID i was quite amused as to how different the game felt compared to other track-based racing games. GRID manages to offer a realistic feel along with ease of driving. Usually track based games are often unplayable without some level of practice, But this one felt easy to cope right out the box. Let's take a closer look at GRID.

First thing's first, i wanna start off with how some of the cars handle in GRID. Unlike traditional Track racing games, i am ACTUALLY able to 'Drift' atleast a little bit to maneuver the car without having to brake like a Need for Speed drift. This is usually not possible when it comes to Track racing games. The ability to drift makes you wanna take a risk with high speed corners.

A wet track causes all hell to break lose at high speeds. We tried to recreate a 'Tokyo Drift' moment and failed miserably. Timing and braking is very important on a wet track, The Veyron is considered one of the fastest cars in the world and it needs alot more of precision to handle on a wet corner.

I love racing games with a view of the cockpit. Right now im sitting and working a Volkswagen Golf Rally Edition with custom interiors, steering, roll bars etc. I found amazing control of the car even in Interior View. Double tapping 'LT' allows you to swerve around those corners with ease and interior view makes it all the more interesting.

This view allows you to overtake with ease. You will know exactly when to punch the accelerator which will thrust you in front of your opponent. You will find the perfect slipstream oppurtunites in this view. So enjoy the visual treat and this view to your advantage as well.


VERDICT

  • Awesome gameplay for a track based racing game.

  • Love the interior view with it's sharp graphics and tactical offering.

  • The variety of cars are available in the game.

  • Fantastic game physics and relative behaviour.

  • It's unlike any racing game we've ever played and we recommend you to get your hands on GRID.
