Ships Ahoy - GRID

This press release announces that GRID is now available in the US, offering the latest installment in the Race Driver series for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 owners:

Start your engines! Codemasters today announced that GRID has shipped to US retail stores. GRID is now available for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, the PLAYSTATION 3 computer entertainment system and Games For Windows. GRID is an all-new race experience, taking players on a world tour of intricately designed racetracks and courses through Europe, the US and Japan. In addition to the exciting, ready-to-race gameplay that gamers have come to expect from Codemasters' racing titles, GRID incorporates only the most powerful racecars ever created - new and classic, circuit and drift. GRID features the most detailed and destructible range of courses ever included in a Codemasters title, challenging gamers with a wide variety of racing styles - from official circuit challenges and drifting events to road races and urban street competitions around the globe.

"Codemasters has a rich history of producing AAA racing games," said Dave Miller, Vice President of Marketing. "GRID is turning out to be one of the highest-scoring racing games the industry has seen in years (Source: http://www.gamerankings.com). By putting the 'racing' back into the racing genre, we've reignited what makes people love these games."

Gamers can test drive the game by playing the GRID demo available from Xbox LIVE Marketplace, PLAYSTATION Network and at http://www.grid-game.com for the Games For Windows demo.

GRID is rated "E" (Everyone) by the ESRB. For the latest on the game, including the latest videos, go to http://www.grid-game.com and sign up for driver briefings.

Yeah... too bad the game demonstrates a wheel control and forcefeedback similiar (and equally uncontrollable) to Dirt.
I bought Dirt, got really good at playing it with my G25.
I hated having to learn that fucker due to the unrelenting twitchiness of the control.
Finally I finished the game and swore it off, happy to revel in Gran Turismo 5 and NFS: Prostreet.

Now Grid comes along, and while it's got 900 degree steering (as an option) I still don't have H pattern, clutch (although it recognizes the clutch..!?) and to top it off, the twitch factor, I swear, has multiplied.

Who the fuck programs this stuff? Do these people even drive?
I mean christ, these cars are seriously ridiculous for how twitchy they are. Who comes up with this shit?
