Another installment in Codemasters' long-running racing series, Grid expands on the traditional grand-touring formula established by its predecessors TOCA and Race Driver. Grid takes players to Japan for import tuner drifting, to the U.S. for muscle car street racing, and into Europe, where drivers get a chance to race around some of the world's most famous circuits in high-performance beasts like the Ferrari F430, the Lamborghini Murcielago, the Aston Martin DBR9, and the Porsche 911 GT3-RSR.
Racing enthusiasts will need to be more than just fast, because Grid features the same Ego physics engine employed by the rally game Dirt , meaning every bump and ding is reflected in a car's appearance and performance. High-impact racing is likely to yield engine fires, tire blowouts, and extreme crashes that send cars hurtling through the air. Players can collide with other vehicles as well as trackside objects, and each spectacular crash is captured in Burnout-esque slow-motion replays. Gamers can race across three continents alone, or head online for multiplayer events. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
