GRID: hitting many cars

In general I don't like racing games where you can damage your car and it impacts on performance.  I'm not great at driving a clean race, and like to be able to graze the walls in order to get around corners when needed.

You can't really do that in GRID.  You have quite a lot of leeway before the damage gets too much, but a lot of that is often lost in the first corner when one of the opponents drives straight into you.  After this, it's a case of driving very carefully around the course, ending up on the podium at best.

Still, the car handling works well and there's a good sense of accomplishment each time you finish a race.  You can't complain for £2.69.
