This is rubbish

Might as well add this piece of rant here as well. I've had Grid for Xbox 360 for a while now but haven't had time to start playing it until now. Installed the game to my Xbox 360 HDD and played couple of tracks. Purpose of installing a game to HDD is that Xbox 360 doesn't have to read disc when playing. It is supposed to fasten the loading times and more importantly lower the noice level because is game is read from HDD and from a spinning disc. Unfortunately Grid is reading the disc even with the install. This seems to be a known issue with Xbox 360 version. I found some post's on the Codemaster offical forums dated to 2008 stating the same?!?! Maybe it is my old age but I just can not bear the noice anymore and for that reason I am out. Shame because the game feeled promising. If a cheap PS3 copy comes a long I will get back to this.

The noise isn't really that bad. I barely install any games to my Xbox 360 and I think it's fine.
