Arrow GRID: Racing Game. (E90 material inside)



Siiiiiiiick! :yikes:

Racing in places like Milan Italy, San Francisco California, and Shibuya Japan!

I don't have the car list right now, but from the pictures it has a wide diversity of cars cars from old American Muscle to Silvia S15's, new Z06's, 350Z's, Vipers, all the way to the Aston Martin DBRS.

I may have to pick this up ,

I dunno. I just bumped into the website and saw the 3er!

...and I'm an Xbox360 guy, no PS3 for me.

Although GT5 looks sick ,

in GT5 Prologue, the M3 is awesome. Awesome balance, brakes, and power. The 135 is great too. Both cars have no under or over steer. And, when in the M3, switch to the "in car" view and the dash / wheel / vents / nav / gauges are just like in a 3 series. duh. I've rented Prologue and I cannot wait till the release of GT5.

The graphics stomp on Forza, but the gameplay sucks ass.

grid is OK, controls are too sensitive as in you tap it, and your car spins....i'd rather play Gran turismo...but unfortunately, no ps3...just a 360 and a pc......waiting for RACE for the 360!

The gameplay isn't that bad if you're not looking for a simulator. It's a nice change of pace from prologue.

... but the 320d on the game drives like pure asshole.

It means that a lot of the cars in the game are a lot higher end so when you race a gt3 over and over again and you're put back into a 320d, it feels like a slow, wobbly piece of lard.

I tried out the demo to this game, and found the game engine and physics to be much more "arcade" like than Gran Turismo. It's really twitchy trying to play with the gamepad, and cars seemingly like to go full throttle around bends, a la Ridge Racer-style drifting. When trying to play the game like I would Gran Turismo, I get schooled like crazy.

I'm more a fan of simulation-style racing games, so GRID doesn't really do it for me. Forza 2 for the Xbox 360 looks awesome, but I haven't be able to try it yet, as I don't own a 360.

Unlike Gran Turismo GRID has damage effects, I always felt that GT not having damage keeps it "arcade" like too. Knowing that you can't just bounce off the walls makes you drive different.

Exactly. That's why I don't like the game. You HAVE to play Forza 2. It's amazing. I thought GT3 was good when I had a PS2, man Forza blows it away (and GT4 as well imo). The handling/physics are so much better.
