** Hoo boy, the Milan street circuit in ''GRID 1'' is a doozy. With narrow alleyways, blind corners, low road visibility, sidekerbs that can throw your car off balance, this track is easily one of the hardest in the game. Thank goodness you don't race on this track a lot in the Career Mode, but when you do, don't be surprised if you end up {{rage quit}}ting at least once or SaveScumming for a better starting position. This track's incredible difficulty is best exemplified when you race in it for the third race of the Global-level Open Wheel championship, the Philips World Championship, where you race on the full version of the circuit in the extremely quick but very fragile Dallara Formula 3. [[FromBadToWorse Oh, and Ravenwest takes part in this event as well.]]
* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: ''GRID 2''. Poor, poor ''GRID 2''. Not only it has been bashed to near-''VideoGame/NeedForSpeed: [[VideoGame/NeedForSpeedMostWanted Most Wanted]]'' [[Creator/CriterionGames 2012]] levels, it has received a lot of flak from the beginning for of the absence of cockpit view, because, according to Codemasters, only 5 percent of the ''GRID'' players used it. Now that the game's out, the other major complaint is that the game feels more arcade-y than the first game, thus disappointing the fans that expected and preferred the handling of the original.

** Okutama's short circuit in GRID 1 and Autosport is definitely not hard, but the Grand Circuit is quite a car-killer. To elaborate: The Grand Circuit goes up a narrow mountain road, with a nasty mix of fast blind corners, sudden and somewhat steep inclines, and bus stop chicanes that do nothing more than destroy cars if their line is poor.

Hell, even Ravenwest has trouble navigating the mountain road part cleanly!

** 24 Hour Le Mans (a 12-15 minute endurance race). You can do it in actual 24 hour if [[BladderOfSteel your bladder feels hardcore]] enough.

Added DiffLines:

** The Advan Drift International event is definitely one of the hardest of the Drift events in the game; even in the cheap and easy to drive Toyota Corolla, going sideways at speed on a tight street circuit cleanly is not an easy task.
** Shibuya in general is a very tough track in GRID 1; tight chicanes and hairpins, no run-offs, and roads only a few cars wide.

** The one-on-one duels versus Ravenwest. Any one of them.
** Midnight Touge events are much harder than the already challenging Pro Touge as it happens at night... with traffic to make things more difficult.

*AwesomeMusic: All installments of GRID series have some adrenaline-pumping soundtracks that play during replay mode and special orchestra versions for the important license races. Notable tracks includes [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ptjC6-mu2rg Razor's Edge]].

* FirstInstallmentWins: It is pretty much agreed that the first ''GRID'' is better than ''GRID 2''. Some do argue with ''Autosport'' being just as good as ''GRID 1'', though.

However not only pitstop mechanic are not featured yet, but the returning cockpit view is blurry and far less detailed than the first GRID.


Added DiffLines:

** While eventually cockpit view returns in GRID Autosport, it's blurry and lacking any sort of details compared to the highly detailed cockpit of the first GRID.

* BaseBreaker: ''GRID Autosport''. Was it a true-to-form return to the roots of the original ''GRID'' and a sign of Codies' "redemption" (that was fulfilled following the release of ''[[VideoGame/{{DiRT}} DiRT Rally]]''), or a jaundiced attempt to {{win back the crowd}} that got alienated with ''GRID 2''? Debates are continuing.

* MagnumOpus: Either the first installment or ''Autosport''. Although there is a VocalMinority saying that ''GRID 2'' is this.
