    In correcting the many small mis-steps of its predecessor, Autosport finally gives us a worthy successor to 2008’s revolutionary Race Driver GRID.

    Grid Autosport promised proper motor racing, and that’s exactly what it delivers (and plenty of it, to boot). It falls a bit short in the visual stakes compared to the hotter, new generation completion, but few developers get pack racing right like Grid Autosport does. The spirit of the classic TOCA games is finally back.

    Stripping racing back to the basics, Codemasters have crafted a simple game that’s one-hundred-percent about the racing while also proving that going for the simple option doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the easy one.

    A decent racing game but we were expecting much more. It sports a very good Career mode but it gets hindered by a disappointing technical production and lackluster online multiplayer.

    Despite its many shortcomings, GRID Autosport is a decent game. There’s plenty of fun to be had in single player mode generally, even though multiplayer is pretty much a bust.

    GRID Autosport is a middle of the road racing game that has little to set it apart from the competition.

    Sadly the simplified physics model makes driving a chore, even if it's still fun for the occasional quick hoot around the track. [Issue#251, p.78]

    Grid Autosport is a great looking, great sounding pseudo-simulator that brings something different to the racing genre. The various differentGrid Autosport is a great looking, great sounding pseudo-simulator that brings something different to the racing genre. The various different types of cars display a good variety of handling and feel, and the sense of speed is well done. On the hardest difficulty, a very enjoyable game with lots of wheel to wheel racing.
    I liked the idea of the team offerings, though this concept was better executed on the N64 with World Championship Driver. In Grid there is no in-team competition to become the number one driver who gets equipment and support upgrades. There is also no story line between the various teams you drive for, this could have been easily added. The teammates are underutilized and serve only to hamper the team with their poor finishes.
    Finally, it may be because of the difficulty I play on, but the AI can get extremely aggressive. It's to the point where I have wondered if the game is intentionally trying to end my race. This has also resulted in some of the best racing I have experienced. This is the only game where I have raced a final lap against an opponent that drives like it's the final lap. I have had an opponent overdrive a corner under me and totally fudge his line to get the position, door slam me as I pass after I give him a nudge with the nose, then give me a decent hit with the nose of his car in the final corner to try to loosen me up.

    Great game, great difficulty, but not perfect.

    That's not the game, my friend. The way you describe the problem as spanning both the original software and software
    @APerspectivist -

    That's not the game, my friend. The way you describe the problem as spanning both the original software and software generated saves makes it sound like your 360 hard drive is fragged. The frustration in your syntax leads me to believe you've experience this before.

    Since november 2005, i have not experienced or seen of a single corrupted 360 save file. If this has happened to you more than once or twice before, you may wanna call M$ and see what they can do.

    Do you keep yer 360 on or right next to speakers, or other large magnets? If it's not a black 360, do u ever travel w/the detachable HD? Maybe you've uploaded a sickly file or used an infected usb drive?

    Good luck.

    Dysfunctional mess full of crippling defects. Your game save with all your progress gets randomly corrupted & lost repeatedly. In-gameDysfunctional mess full of crippling defects. Your game save with all your progress gets randomly corrupted & lost repeatedly. In-game leaderboards do not work properly. Cars bought for your online garage are randomly corrupted. Integrated online RaceNet service is slow & often unavailable. Some achievements & rewards fail to unlock after meeting their requirements. Graphical skipping. Random console lock-ups/freezes. Repair costs take away most (or all) of your prize money. Online cheaters already. And more. It might be a good game if it actually worked, and some of its defects might be patched later, but the faulty state of the game at launch is fraudulently substandard. Expand
