Middle East Gamers writes: "Each and every major developer on the market has their own niche. This specialty comes from experience, sometimes from heavy advertising and surely from a load of satisfied fans. Codemasters for years now have been producing some of the best racing games around. The games they delighted us with over the years include the Colin McRae series, TOCA Racer and last summer's hit DIRT. Grid borrows elements from each game mentioned and mixes them in a way that satisfies fans of racing games to the extreme. Some nagging issues however, mainly the lack of detailed options; limit the game from being THE perfect racing simulator out there."
