Thinking about getting this, or Forza, just wondering how it compares to Grid?
Hows this game compared to Grid?
Grid is the far superior game. Grid's interface is better, the career mode is more fleshed out, the actual driving is more fun (subjective, obviously...) and the online simply blows Shift's out of the water. Also, Grid's drifting isn't utterly ridiculous like Shift's.
I am really digging the Grid/Dirt 2 combo for racing fun. I even sold my copy of Shift and canceled my pre-orders of Forza3 and GT5. The Forza 3 demo felt so flat. I hope GT5 is up to snuff but I am worried that it wont be. I would rather trade in some reality for some exciting racing. The rewind feature is an obvious winner even the sim like Forza 3 features it prominently.
" It's pretty similar to GRiD. Depending on how you put the settings it can be more hardcore than GRiD or more arcade. If you want deep racing, I would go for Forza 3, personally. "Please, folks. Don't try to utter GRiD's amazing name in the presence of such failure as NFS Shift. I haven't played Shift, but just from all the bugs being reported in the game...GRiD is ALREADY vastly superior!
I still prefer GRiD though.. Mostly due to the fact that i can get a solid 60fps compared to the 30-40 i get in shift.
NFS Shift has this awesome effect with the subwoofer channel (in dolby digital/5.1)for those of us that have bass-chairs (or tactile transducers) where you can feel the engine rev, collisions, and grip/offroad/curbs/rumble strips tire reaction as you drive. It's an excellent effect that ALL DRIVING GAMES should attempt to emulate. Makes me wish I had a force feedback driving wheel in conjunction.
Haven't tried GRiD. I'll grab the demo and see if this feature is in it, but I'd doubt it. Forza 3 doesn't have it... only lightly with collisions.
