Seriously, if you have been disappointed by the other racing games for PS3 then you need to at least try this one!
I can't stop playing this one, and I can't wait to get off from work to play more! What makes it so great?
This is the first game I've played since Gran Turismo 3 that TRULY has the unique and different handling characteristics for each one of the different cars. Each car definitely takes a little practice to master.
The variety of races are just unbelievable! The Figure 8 Destruction Derby races are so freakin' tough! The 24hr. LeMans race is one of the most intense races in the game! It's a really cool 24 minute race.
All of the tracks AND races are unique, fun, and challenging......yes they are!
One of the best, yet disappointing things about this game is that you buy your cars race ready....no stock cars. But the truly best thing about the game is.......
YOU DON'T HAVE TO START THE GAME WITH A PIECE! You start the game with a Dodge Viper, and the piece comes later when you start team racing. But even at that, you DON'T HAVE TO USE IT FOREVER like other games!

I traded in both my need for speed games for this one after playing the demo. It was well worth it this is a must have have for any diehard racing fan. The graphics are superb and the gameplay is outstanding, but the best part is the multiplayer its perfect no lag its like racing in singleplayer mode. A buy not just a rent..........
Grid took me by surprise, I didn't think it would be so good. I bet grid will be one of the top 10 games of 2008, it's that good, just make sure to slow down when hitting sharp corners, that's my only problem with grid; the corners are a pain. But other than that every gamer should play this game.
