Well, that headline just didn’t work, did it? Sorry.
Nevertheless, news is in: Codemasters’ Race Driver GRID is on that there Steam- and this one is available to multiple territories, not just to you ever-priveleged Americans. $40, it is – or $47 in the UK, once VAT is added. Which is about the same as the boxed copy, sadly. To American Steamers, it’s $60 – Europe treated with respect by games publisher shocker.
It isn’t Codies’ first appearance on Steam, but it is their first very high profile one – of its two prior offerings, Clive Barker’s Jericho [Mehrico more like – Ed] was a bit of a stinker and Overlord, while a giggle, never quite reached heights of brilliance. GRID? Lots of fun, remarkably attractive and a game that my racing fan chums just won’t shut up about, no matter how much I yawn and mutter ‘oh, is that the time?’. Hopefully it’s a sign Codies are taking Steam seriously, and we’ll see a healthy slice of their back catalogue turn up on it soon.
