Yeah, isn't there supposed to be physics involved?

Summary: I bought this (might be the other "classics" version) having come from Forza. I have basically had to unlearn how to drive. The grip in this game is so unrealistic that the entire way you expect to be able to drive from either real life driving experience or a simulated experience goes straight out...
Summary: Well, just got the game and the good points are the great presentation, graphics and sensation of speed. The bad side is the handling of the cars and the fact that the cars behind you constantly bump into you, knocking you off the track or spinning you around.
Summary: Well looked at this game and thought wow, a really cool game to get, but the handling on the cars are awful, you hit the tinyest part of the side of the road and your car crashes then you need to get back straight just to go, its silly.
Summary: Get past the admittedly beautiful graphics of this game and what you're left with is one of the poorest racing games on any console. Options for tuning, practice laps and qualifiers are all notable by their absence.
Summary: I am disappointed by Race Driver Grid because under all its graphical glory and `bells & whistles' there lays a typical arcade style racer. It's a sloppy one too, because the race mechanics are poor with bad car handling and dodgy AI opponents.
Summary: I bought this game as an alternative to Forza; I wanted something that wasn't too arcade, but at the same time was easily accessible if I wanted to just pick up and play without having to worry about setting a car up.
Summary: You will love this game if you have never played PGR3 or Forza2 - and if you think sliding or "drifting" as the youngsters call it "looks cool". Unfortunately I loved PGR3 and Forza2 and thinking drifting is as lame as it is pointless.
Summary: First off, let's get the bad points out of the way; In normal circuit racing, cars handling can be quite unpredictable. Mainly, when powersliding, the car suddenly regains perfect grip which sends you flying off course as you are still steering into the slide.
Summary: Ok so it looks cool , and after a couple of hours playing the demo I got used to the handling , but its just another driving game .. having played Mario Kart Wii with average graphics and silly cars Grid just doesnt bring a smile to my face.
