Grid has the WORST HANDLING i've ever seen.
i dare you all to say me that i'm the problem.
in a short list way, i've played, tryied or finished
-need for speed series, from porsche 2000 and Underground to Prostreet on PC and Ps2,
-ridge racer 2, 3 and the Psp version
-Gran turismo 2, 3, 4 and 5 (and the ♥♥♥♥ty PSP version)
-Forza 3, well a great to superb game if you want to personnalise ur car and race it, lots less frustrating than GT, but less interresting for a playstation fan lol.
-the almighty Street legal redline, aka the crash simulator
-test drive unlimited, really lovely unless you're into safari driving :3
-rig over the road racing (lol)
-i've been a regular Track Mania driver from 2007 to 2012.
-GTA series have no secret for me (exept GTA/GTA2/GTA london)
-TOCA race driver and Race 07, both very serious sim racing games, with great parameter grids
-Drift City, the MMO who lost my account three times (each time it changed of owner), with a total of 130 lost levels but also the best arcade based open world racer i've been in
i can name only two games who had Worse handling than GRID so far: the base SLRR (with Mister SiR mods, it handles BETTER) and ROTRR.
i've found a nickname for this game: the donut simulator.
push up button and the car will do perfect circles.
remove driving assist? slightly better, but still cant turn. remembers me the Dirt thing, where a punto with 200hp could do 0-100 in 2.2sec. Oh dude! it's the same game engine!
wow. so i've really seen the ♥♥♥♥ hit the fan.
as a keyboard/playstation driver and a young real world driver, i've NEVER EVER been insulted by something's handling like that. even that lawn mower on flat plastic wheels was more sticky on (wet) grass.
but well, i'm not gonna die, it was well 3 euros worth, for it's graphics. nice from far, but far from nice.
