By right, 360Gamer should be rather annoyed with Codemasters. Until now, buying a racing game had been a relatively straightforward process. With most of the genre's heavyweights having been around for donkey's years, each has established its own particular niche from which it seldom strays.
For instance, if you wanted a serious driving sim, you'd instinctively go for a Forza or a Gran Turismo. If you wanted something more unorthodox, then the Kudos chasing charms of Gotham would be your likely destination. For rallying, you'd opt for McRae, and for arcade charms, Burnout or Sega Rally. Simple really.
Or at least, it was. Enter Race Driver: GRID.
