The modding folks from Race Driver: GRID did some nice job in improving the graphics of the game. More realistic colors, better shadows, better reflections. PCGH has the info and the pics.
In the normal version the reflections look blured and in the moded version they look more detailed.
... but it still falls short in a side-by-side comparison with the best looking racers out there. The in-car view is particularly bad.
I've posted a video of what just about everyone agrees is the best racing game graphics out there. If you disagree, please post evidence rather than simply hitting the disagree button. I'd be happy to discover if there's something better looking than this. GT5: Prologue http://www.youtube.com/watc... Which I'm sure you'd agree is much better than ... Race Driver: Grid (PC) http://www.youtube.com/watc... or this ... http://www.youtube.com/watc...
It just looks like someone made the colors darker and turned the sharpness up a notch. I wouldn't consider that better graphics, LOL! It is a great looking game though, and the in-seat view is great.
I agree - saturation up, brightness down, sharpness up - Viola!!
Now if they had a higher polygon count i bet it could rival gt5p....
I play games to have fun, not count polygons. GRID = fun!!
GT5P = Fun!!! < Thats called an opinion. I should change my name "The Teacher"
Now if only they can upgrade the physics it might become a great game.
Grid graphics are lacking. Where can i donwload the mod...link is in german:(
