I checked this game out when it first hit, and though I liked a lot of things about it, I never could get into it. The main reason being, I never could figure the brake system out. I've really been jonesing for a good street-racing-type game (oh, please don't start listing off a host of other games ) and want to give Grid another shot, but what am I doing wrong? The regular brake only slows you down slightly, allowing for no drift at all, and the hand brake doesn't respond at all. Help me, Obi Wan -- you're my only hope!
