Codemasters' racing games have been receiving makeovers as of late. The publisher earned its racing pedigree on dirt (with the Colin McRae Rally series) and on the asphalt (with numerous games, including most recently the TOCA Race Driver series). The company went on to redefine its reputation as a racing-game leader with last year's Dirt, which brought cutting-edge presentation to a wide variety of off-road racing styles: everything from traditional rally to dune-buggy racing.
That same multidisciplined approach will also be a hallmark of Codies' updated asphalt race, Grid. GameSpot saw the game a few months back and have now finally had a chance to get their hands around the virtual wheel to see what Grid will have to offer.
