Although it mightn't offer the biggest selection of cars, GRID offers one of the most diverse. It injects life beyond the racing itself, delivering a career mode that is as interesting as it is rewarding. Control is going to make or break this game for some players, but ultimately that all comes down to personal opinion. Strictly purist simulation players will find themselves rewarded for their superior skill, but find themselves disadvantaged by the game at times.
They'll find themselves fighting an uphill battle, but a satisfying one none the less. If you're looking for sheer variety and a game that captures the spirit of racing, then GRID more than does the job. If you like your arcade style racers, GRID is certainly worth a play.
