No idea Grid was going to have DLC. Is this also for the PS3?

GRID... great... unbelievable visuals but very poor gameplay!!! If you are into arcade racing than this will serve you a pint full.

forget about new cars, give us a few new derby tracks..i cant believe they only shipped it with one.

If this game, and flatout, has taught us anything its that xbox live is screaming out for a proper full destruction derby game online.

It was nice until they redesigned it. God I hate the Z chassis. Overall this is a good pack though--as long as it's free or close to it.

I couldn't agree with you more. Could've been such a great game with better physics and handling for the cars.

And how does "arcade" equal "poor gameplay". GRID is more fun than all the wannabe sims that keep trying but always fail to come close to real racing.

We're not saying arcade equals poor gameplay. PGR is an arcade racer with great gameplay while conversley GRID is an arcade racer with crappy gameplay - cars with no weight and twitchy "center axis" steering.

HAHA And by balance, you meant 90% arcade vs 10% sim?!?

You're so right! I would've killed for a 360 sequel with a real incar view!

GRID blew away PGR4's incredibly dull and repetitive single player mode if you ask me. I spent the whole of my time on that game on my own, doing laps in dull grey coloured cities. GRID was tense and pretty, awesome damage and some good old rubbin' racin'.

Agree, GRID is arcade done right, its pure FUN. As opposed to arcade games that tainted the reputation of the entire arcade racing genre, such as the latest NFS games etc. Thats arcade done poorly, doesnt mean arcade racers suck as a whole.

Wont be getting this DLC though, im still waiting for F1 cars. I was so pumped up, battling through the career, loved the formula 1000 races, loved the formula 3 races, then i get to the top, wtf no formula 1? Thanks alot :(

Codemasters got the exclusive rights for a Formula 1 game a few months ago. They are in the process of making it right now.

Google it.

And obviously Codemasters made GRID.. so.. I'm expecting something really good from them after what they did with GRID.

One of my Favorites GAMEZZZ!!! pluse one of the best

for people complaining about the handling......i can tell you there is no problem at all if you master it, also some say No Physics??!!!

Come on....try to hit a car or to smash your car at the wall....isnt that physics?!!

Did you see anything like that in GT5 or even Forza?!!

Anyway im really looking for getting these cars especially the Evo....i love this car

CANT WAIT!!!

I got tired of it, was immensely frustrated with the handling of many of the GT-spec cars. I didn't feel entirely in control of the car, thus stopping me from going faster round the corners. Needless to say, despite with all the fancy graphics and damage, I have had enough of the game and swapped it with Nascar 09. Seriously.

About the game


What's up?
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite The game doesn't have to rely on cheap jump scares normally associated with traditional game design in VR. The immersion just does it automatically. It's something a normal TV can't compete with. (1 minute ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite the game should come with a warning and a disclaimer should you decide to play it in VR. As soon as you're there, it's extremely uncomfortable, even if nothing is happening. (3 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: Trust me on this, if immersion and horror is the aim here, and it is, then first person and VR makes perfect sense. I'm not joking when I say this... (4 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite @alimokrane: The demo is tame compared to what I seen in the first 45 minutes. The atmosphere got ramped up big time, and don't be thinking you're safe behind closed doors or walls. (5 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: I know people prefer VR or first person view but if they were to patch 3rd person view, my life would be complete. (5 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Light and shadows, as well as sound, play a massive role in the design of the game. I'm confident it'll be a return to form. (6 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @MrWhite: True. I still havent got over how scare the RE7 demo was... crickey! (7 minutes ago)
