    One of the outgoing generation's best racers and the kind of game that makes you wish for a new-gen port. [Sept 2014, p.76]

    Grid Autosport is a very good racing-game, that should please most fans of the first Grid. Although it is far away from a simulation, it has an extremely authentic race-feeling. The only thing annoying is, that you have to play some races for multiple times, so the career-mode feels a little bit drawn-out.

    Despite the lack of choice and freedom in the single player side, GRID Autosport delivers some exciting gameplay thanks to its believable driving model and over the top AI. It might lack some polish on the multiplayer side, but it's still a great comeback for fans of the original game.

    If GRID Autosport is Codemasters' way of saying 'sorry' for the last one, consider the apology accepted.

    A pretty fun racing title, but in the pursuit of addressing every bit of feedback after Grid 2, Codemasters hasn't delivered the most cohesive experience. You still need to endure some of the disciplines that you may not like in order to progress through the career, and the two cockpit cameras feel more like a fan-made mod than something devised by the developer itself. Throw in the erratic AI and you might get annoyed quite a few times while playing Autosport.

    Autosport tries hard to bring back the glory of the first GRID (e.g. the cockpit cam returns) but the career mode was designed horribly, the game engine is aging and the whole thing lacks a spark. [08/2014, p.66]

    Friendlier F1 handling in a Grid 2 wrapper, Grid Autosport is a tour through the Codemasters back catalogue. Single player is hampered by predictable AI, but tuning options and improved cornering elevates the multiplayer above Grid 2's.

    finally good racing game. no unnecessary crap, just pure racing. car's handling give satisfaction and feels like perfect mixture of simulation and arcade. great optimization, it works well on laptop with i3 and GF520M. in overall it feels more like TOCA series rather than GRID and it is a good way chosen by Codies.

    Много машин и трасс! Красивая графика...адекватная физика!(На руле играть приятно) Убогий вид из кабины....все замылено...сделали для галочки.....пожалуй самый жесткий минус у игры на мой взгляд!
    Играя в неё складывается ощущение что чего-то не хватает! Чего то!!!

    It's really a solid SIMCADE and it reminds me the original TOCA. Motorsport fits the game with different car types with different handling. Although many people miss the dashboard view for me the inner views are perfect (when you drive you concentrate on the track and other cars and not on your car). Expand

    It's an "okay" game, not as fun as Grid and Grid 2 but well made with impressive graphics and sounds, however the handling takes the joy out of this game and let me explain why, no matter what car you are driving they all feel like a 50hp Nissan Micra doing a handbrake turn in the corners, your car looses all the power and almost stops when you try to power drift through a nice corner. If you prefer simulation over arcade I suppose it could be worth picking up on a 50% sale but at full price I would be more careful and watch game play videos first. Realism can be a good thing but fun is always more important in my book. Expand

    Codemasters managed to ruin another of their own racing franchises.

    Those who bought GRID 2 don't need to even think about purchasing GRID
    Autosport, because it's the same game. Same tracks, same cars, same ♥♥♥♥ty handling. Not any major improvement. Really, it's the same game, rehashed with a different user interface and progression system, and now with a cockpit view that's nothing short of laughable.

    If you never played any game from GRID series, it's OK to try this one, maybe you'll have some hours of fun. But if you played GRID 2 and especially the first GRID, don't bother getting this, really. I got it with a 50% discount price and I still feel myself scammed.

    Mediocre driving physics. The cars behave funny and somehow escape outside and move sideways in turns. Unacceptable. The cockpit cam is really bad. Nice audio/video thou. Expand

    Bad game! Very boring. It feels like we are still in 2004... The graphics inside the cars are terrible. The physics are terrible. The sounds are terrible. Just don't waste your money! GRID 2 was so much better than this crap... Expand
