"After watching another tour de force performance from one of my favorite Hollywood actors, I was presented with a disarming epiphany: GRID is the Nicole Kidman of racing games.
I didn't believe it at first either. But with GRID's fine-lined features, willingness to take on difficult and not always likeable roles, and its overall variety of selective yet class-act performances, this seemingly ethereal analogy began to cement itself. Not to say that Nicole Kidman hasn't run into the odd roadblock or two during her tenure as one of Tinseltown's leading ladies. Which is to admit that developer Codemasters didn't race away without erecting the occasional roadblock for its GRID actors either."
