What a fun experience! What an awesomely spectacular game!

It is fast-paced combat racing the way it should be. Beautifully flowing tracks and intense speed. At 500, 600, 700 km/h ... yes, even over Mach 1, you're almost a fighter pilot :) ... and you WILL be doing some flying. Futuristic-looking. Different planets with different tracks that are gravity-defying and alinear - up becomes down and down becomes up and the tracks split off to form alternative routes. I totally love the roll-cage thing: you keep going even when the car flips over. You have a range of weapons to keep your competitors at bay: rockets, guns ...

Even if you're not a big fan of racing games, like me, you might be surprised by this one. I'd recommend GRIP any day. For me it's the most fun since that old classic combat racer Re-Volt. And it's going to keep getting better as development continues. It most certainly gets my vote.

For a visual reference, watch my GRIP showcase video: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=844398789
Note: This video was recorded when the game was still in early access. The tracks and weapons shown may have since been changed.
