  • Summary: Capturing intense moment-to-moment racing action, GRID returns with an all-new experience where every race is the chance to choose your own path, create your own story and define your legacy in the motorsport world.

    Capturing intense moment-to-moment racing action, GRID returns with an all-new experience where every race is the chance to choose your own path, create your own story and define your legacy in the motorsport world.

    From the creators of the hugely successful DiRT and F1 series, Codemasters invites you to take your place in the GRID World Series and compete in intense wheel-to-wheel racing with the most iconic and desirable race cars -- current and classic, from GT through Touring and Muscle to Stock and Super Modifieds -- and in some of the world's most famous city streets, ovals and circuits.

    GRID captures every moment of the race, from the adrenaline rush of lights-out to the elation at the chequered flag -- and in-between, it's all action too. Incidents come one right after the other -- tight overtakes, bumper-to bumper scrapes and competitive collisions -- all heightened by rivalries, team-mates and a nemesis driver who will all either try to help or hinder your progress as you achieve your goal of becoming the GRID World Series champion.

    A fitting return to form for the GRiD franchise, especially given the five year gap since Autosport. Doesn’t take itself too seriously, so it’s a title anyone can pick up and play. Would be just as at home in an arcade cabinet as it is in the console under your TV or on your PC.

    So how successful was Codemasters in their goal to create a fun experience? They did pretty well. With Grid, Codemasters have crafted a fun racing experience and managed to inject some personality into the game to boot.

    Once the feel of the grind of the Career Mode begins, the initial appeal starts to wear off even though the varying race experiences try to hide it. The multiplayer experience is seemingly just an afterthought with something that could have had so much potential. But with beautiful visuals and impressive gameplay, fans of the original GRID will find that this modern version will suit them on the track.

    GRID focuses on the basics, and that is barebones racing. Don’t expect anything beyond that to keep you motivated.

    Limited number of cars, tracks not always inspired and non-existent management section prevent Codemasters' driving game from having a strong personality.
  6. 70
    Some of the finest simulated driving you can find on PC and console, but with a single-player career mode that’s not as fully fleshed out as you’d expect for the money.

    Just about racing, nothing more. Competion, overtake..thats it! No drift crap, no xenon light.
    Multiplayer could be more options on lobby but

    got this at launch (the normal version) and at first wasnt sure about it there is not many tracks and cars and the frame rate even on my progot this at launch (the normal version) and at first wasnt sure about it there is not many tracks and cars and the frame rate even on my pro takes a very occasional hit but after a few hours i have to say i love it, the reason? the AI is fantasitin and gives you a really fatasic race on hard and very hard (dont try medium its way to easy) the game looks fantastic and the limited number of tracks (more to come in free DLC) does not hurt the game as much as i thought it would, also turn of the driving assists (or lower them anyway) traction control stability control etc.. blunt and sanitise the game and take away from the raw racing on offer, one last gripe is the use of bots to fill lobbys online, i realy ont like thatand hopefully is was just a early launch day issue, anyway im off to have some more FUN Expand

    Its a simple, fun, basic racer. Not as arcade style as driveclub (I actually prefer the handling of this game), but still a fast paced simpleIts a simple, fun, basic racer. Not as arcade style as driveclub (I actually prefer the handling of this game), but still a fast paced simple arcade.

    It brings nothing new to the genre, but has a good variety of racing modes that keeps you entertained. The handling is ok, arcade style, easy to pick up and play.

    Not many vehicles, not many tracks, and nothing extremely exciting. Still, very fun to play if you like racing.

    As a fan of the first Grid I was eagerly anticipating this realease , I missed Grid 2 and Grid Autosport due to the games not being that goodAs a fan of the first Grid I was eagerly anticipating this realease , I missed Grid 2 and Grid Autosport due to the games not being that good , so i thought great they are re-doing Grid , its gotta be good, coz the first one was figgin awesome!!... well it is and it isnt.

    Where it counts out on the track its pretty good nowhere near as good as the first grid , for two reasons, the handling and the damage model. This leans alot towards arcade in terms of handling , there a few "sim" options like traction control etc , but on some cars these just dont matter. The damage model is really poor, seriously toned down, gone are the slow mo smash ups , and your car crumpling and having handling problems , now you can smash a wall and lose a bonnett..really??

    The team mate and nemises things are just padding , they are touted as things to do and watch out for ie you can order your team mate to defend etc , and if you crash into another driver often they become a nemisis and supposedly hunt you down , but it doesnt matter that much and you can easlly forget about it.

    Online is a joke , very limited options for public racing , if youve got 15 mates that have the game great you cab set up a private server full of options, but nothing like that for public games.
    So poor showing in my opinion , buy it yes, but after the price comes way down.

    Cons first:
    - only a handful of tracks with a couple variants each; where's Nuerburgring, Spa, Monza, Suzuka, de la Sarthe, Laguna Seca,

    - same goes for racing disciplines: barely any open-wheel or A-to-B sprint, no drift or drag, and endurance is there in name only. I'm guessing Codemonsters are holding back for DLC.
    - barebones multiplayer
    - poor performance despite mediocre graphics
    - pointless teammate system, since only your personal results matter.
    Just one upside: unexpectedly large number of unlockable cosmetics (car liveries, profile designs, etc.) If this is supposed to be their norm now, I wish we could still buy TOCA Racedriver 3 digitally.

    I feel stupid i pre-ordered this game. Online is lacking. There are only quick matches. You can't play with a teammate. Statistics are missingI feel stupid i pre-ordered this game. Online is lacking. There are only quick matches. You can't play with a teammate. Statistics are missing in this game. You don't have a parking garage. In online mode the starting grid seems bugged. Some players count downs are quicker then others.

    In offline the AI is really stupid. It's good to be aggressive, but this ain't aggressive, just plain stupid. They just bump to bump. Graphics are outdated.

    I payed € 90,- for this trash. Even the original GRID is better.
