This game is a terrible representation of drifting...the realism is so off and the driving is terrible...terrible...just terrible.

I take it then that you're some sort of professional drift champion in the real world, and would know exactly what drifting should feel like?

amateur drift, self funded for 4 years actually

Yes it does suck, but the game is not a simulation and there are other modes like circuit racing and street racing.

The thing that bothers me is that a lot of these racing rely on that "not realistic" aspect...it just seems like a cop-out and an excuse to release shiny garbage...even the racing modes feel hokey in comparison to other games AND real life...

Have you tried forza 2? Thats the nearest to realism you're going to get on a console. Otherwise try GTR or RACE on the PC. More realistic = Less sales and it probably wouldn't be any fun. Imagine racing for 2 hours and having engine failure, puncture, etc. on the last lap.

Yea I have had Forza 2 beaten for quite some time, I just don't want to see too many games with the cheese value sky high like NFS Pro Street...which is a far worse game than GRID currently is...I do however like some of their car choices

im having problems with drifting but the other apects of the game i.e BMW or USA muscle it rules!!

The drifting got me down too. I'm used to the arcade type games and I'm currently looking for another franchise since EA let me down with ProStreet. This game is shaping up to be a new fav. Since Topcat is the professional, what would you do with the drifting?

Just because it is not realistic doesn't mean it is bad. Look at Ridge Racer 6, it goes beyond unrealistic but its incredibly fun, challenging and rewarding.
