Eurogamer has posted their review of Gripshift, giving it a 7 out of 10.
"In the final reckoning Gripshift's probably a bit too messy to really work. It's not really an issue of the handling; it is what it is for a reason. And it's not losing points for asking me to do something - cross fingers - seven times; this is a world of acrobatic vehicular dressage, and making that perilous jump is as much about the six attempts that preceded success as it is about the success itself. No, it just doesn't seem confident enough to let itself be the thing it is, and this manifests itself in a reward structure that stops short of demanding the most of you, and in lots of tangential fodder that dilutes its purposefulness. Nonetheless, it has the feeling of a game that will appeal to people who bask in challengingly unrealistic pursuits like those of Trackmania, Super Monkey Ball and Mercury, and I reckon the PSP could do with a lot more games like it. Buy it if you know what I'm talking about."
