Race Driver: GRID £9.99 @ Play [Xbox 360 Game]

Codemaster’s obsession with capitalised titles continues with Race Driver: GRID, now available for only £9.99 from Play!

Shot into a price-comparison, Play’s offer for Race Driver: GRID lapped its competitors as the cheapest deal around, and with free delivery, too! Diverting from the common trend of customisation in driving-games, Race Driver: GRID’s focus on the thrill of racing earned it an impressive 87/100 on MetaCritic, with G4TV awarding it a perfect 5/5.

Race Driver: GRID is a game all about driving. The car roster isn’t huge, customisation is minimal, and tracks and locations are largely urban-based. But the sheer thrill of wrenching an Aston Martin around an abrupt bend, hearing the tyres screech and steam swirl, the car fishtailing until it regains direction and streaks away is exhilarating. It’s a distilled racing experience, focusing on the core components, polishing and refining them to nigh perfection.

It’s also a beautiful game. Draped in stylised, almost saturated shades, GRID’s sun-baked asphalt and gleaming, crumpled metal, coupled with realistic physics, create an authentic racing aesthetic.

In an attempt to assuage newcomers who may be intimidated by the punishing difficult racing-games incur, Codemasters included a rewind function. Imagine if you’re car happens to crash into another, flip and drop you to last place. Simply rewind to before the crash, remember your mistake and revert it.
