Grid 2

GRID 2 is the long-awaited sequel to the BAFTA-award winning, critically acclaimed Race Driver: GRID and will invite players race only the world’s most exciting racing cars on city streets, licensed circuits and open-roads. From Paris to Dubai and Barcelona to California, gamers will journey from rookie to racing superstar as they blaze to the top of World Series Racing, a new world of professional motorsport.

It's only the most expensive game in history once they've sold a copy at that price. Until then it's just a stupid price tag.

I've got an original copy of Crimson Skies I'll sell for £650,000. There, I have the most expensive game now.

The bad is that it has no driving assists to fine tune the difficulty, but the game is gorgeous, exciting game. luv it
