Windows 10 Review for Dummies
By Ivory_Soul
Posted on 08/11/15
After all these years, and growing up with Windows 3.1, I have seen an entire evolution of computers and software. Touch screens and large resolutions were a pipe dream just 15 years ago. Now it's the norm. Going from a Packard Bell (yes, before HP) that couldn't run 3D Ultra Mini...

E What do these ratings mean?

Bought Grid, got home at 12:10.  stopped playing for thanksgiving dinner five hours later.

usually i dont do that.  i would consider myself a casual gamer except for racing games, where ill have a spell where i dont play anything but.  after Forza, NFS Most Wanted and Burnout Paradise, i figured i had all the fun i could get out of racing games.  i have the most fun drifting, so i liked Burnout.  i liked sim games, hence Forza. i like running from the cops, and i like my license, so i kept Most Wanted. 

I really cant think of anything general to say about Grid, just the high points and unique features. 

the "flashback" mode is fun but does end up being a little bit of a crutch.  good for after you play late into the night and run headlong into a wall on the second from last turn.  you can turn it off, but it also disables the ability to restart races immediately.

the different racing types keep it interesting for a long time.  demo derby sucks, i never knew where i was going and followed everyone till the last lap.

the game lets you pick a nickname and calls you by it.  it has a lot of first names available, and the first time a crew chief calls you by name to tell you that youre in third and the 1st place driver just spun out, you lose yourself in the game a little.  its fun.

if you played Dirt and can imagine it with road cars and tarmac, thats grid.  yeah, the cars do feel alike, but there are subtle differences (more grip, more acceleration) that keep you wanting to earn more money.  the tracks do get repetative, but same with Forza and GT4.

lastly, drifting is easy and fun.  the first midnight touge run i had against a rival shop with $750,000 euros at stake was awesome.

gotta give it an A, cause it realy is the most fun ive ever had with a racing game.  hard enough for sim racers to have fun with, but arcade enough for my friend Bill to not throw the controller at the wall.
