This game is great in every way. It is not a sim nor is it an arcade. It is a simcade. It has great controls and is the only game that can hang with the greats like Forza and F1 series. If you haven't played this game and you like racing, go get it now. You will prob have to get it used or just rent it from GameFly. Grid 2 is right around the corner so hurry.
I love this game. I'm a huge racing fan and ive played most of the need for speed games but none are as good as this yet. The graphics are amazing!, the cities are authentic, and the cars are beautiful and each has their own style. The career mode is very entertaining and long so this will take some time to complete. For the achievment guys there are a lot of them and most are easy to get. I never got bored with this game. Cars handle well and are realistic. This is not a racing simulation so you can get away with some sweet drifts. Also another sweet feature is the rewind setting, which saved my butt many times. You almost WANT to crash your car because the damage is so good looking. I played this game and beat every race on the default setting with no trouble at all so anyone can play GRID. Most definatly pick this game up or rent it, you will not be dissapointed!

Let me start off this is not a sim at all in places you can say it is but not really.The game focases on the feel of going 196 mph in a Viper next to a to a 2010 challenger just to slam in to a wall and than do it all again.The Grafics in this game are AMAZING when you play you feel like you are really there.The online is the best ive seen in the way of racers besides forza 3 you really get in to it.I mean who doesnt want to race agenst friends with your own car that has your race team on and the sponsers you choose. The down side is that you cant upgrade it perfomens wise and cosmetic wise except paint and vinals other than that this game is perfect for the kind of gamer that enjoys racing i give it a 10 out of 10
