This game was made by Codemasters, the creators of the TOCA/Race Driver series. Race Driver: GRID is an arcade / tarmac racing simulator consisting of 43 cars. However, two Ferrari's were removed before launch,along with a posche 911 GT3 which could still be driven by obtaining contracts but not actually bought, creating a problem for 360 players who are seeking the "Drive Them All" achievement. The game features an Instant Replay feature which allows the player to rewind time by up to 10 seconds as many times as the player wants to. There is also a Flashback feature, which can only be used for a limited number of times of which is determined by the difficulty setting. There are several modes of competition using various cars, including: GT races, open wheel races, demolition derbies, etc. There are also several tracks derived from different countries, including Japan, United States and European tracks such as Le Mans and Spa Francorchamps.

Awesome game!

Reply Good karma Bad karma+3 votes

This game is my favorite racing game ever! I love the whole realism and the cars all handle superbly in a very good looking game. This game had a whole bunch of vehicles and a very nice yet limited 'paintjob' customizer.

I still play it every now and then!

this was good fun but has little replay value and no unlockables :(

Notice: FlatoutJoint is not the developer/publisher. It is Codemasters who developed and published this awesome game.
