As you may know, I am one of the most experienced players in the world of Grid Autosport. Which is even BETTER than Race Driver GRID, and GRID 2. I can do long endurance races online and increase the XP for all my cars to max out the performance. Yeah! This is the best Codemasters racing game ever. Since I got it in November 2014.
GRID Autosport combines interesting cars, entertaining tracks, excellent AI, and a quality handling engine to deliver a terrific racing experience. Unfortunately its career mode lacks depth and isn't particularly engaging.
Codemasters is definitely moving in the right direction, but this franchise still has a few more mile markers to pass before it escapes from the shadow of the outstanding entry that got it off the starting line.
GRID Autosport is a quality production, as you would expect from Codemasters when developing a racing game. It's just difficult to see the relevance of this game on console, when there are so many next gen racing games on the way.
Best racing game in a long time; physics, AI, sounds, graphics, SFX and track atmosphere are all top notch. If you are looking for a careless arcade cruiser then buy NFS, but if you are looking for the best racing experience on PS3/ 360 then don't doubt any longer and pick up this game!
It's not actually that bad. Coming from a sim racers perspective (iRacing, Assetto Corsa, rFactor) it's definitely playable. Whilst it isn't a sim, I can happily sit down & play for a few hours just to take a break from the serious games. I was able to jump right in & race hard and fast from the get-go, with the AI set to Hard difficulty. (With only the HUD on, if you want to count that as an assist) After completing the first 2 introduction races I hopped into the Open-Wheel career path and completed my first season there, it was a lot of fun, just driving different tracks and cars (Formula 3) to what I was normally used to. However, the cockpit view is horrible. Everything is blurred out so you can't see the steering wheel or mirrors. This is by far the games' biggest issue that could have been EASILY fixed. Codemasters, please do tell me what the point is of having a cockpit with blurred mirrors? It's almost impossible to enjoy the game with no HUD on as you have no way to tell what position you're in or how many laps to go, or when to change gears, (I go by sound, but not being able to see my engines RPM or shift lights is utterly ridiculous). This next section I'll be going through a few positives & negatives about the game as I know people don't want to read on and on and on.
- The cameras each have their own unique feel to them but the roll-bar cam is quite nice with just the right amount of FOV set that allows you to see both what's in front and what's next to you, I highly recommend you use this and not the 3rd person camera to get the most out of GRID Autosport.
- Menu navigation is simplistic.
- The music can get repetitive, but its surprisingly bearable, or you can disable it entirely in the options menu.
- Physics for a simcade aren't too bad although some cars feel like they need a bit of work.
- Career mode is pretty good, with a wide variety of disciplines.
- The whole teammate, team stuff doesn't have enough depth. Why on earth should I care if my team-mate does well? I'm only there for my self, not the team.
- AI pace can be inconsistent from track-to track.
It's not a bad game for a casual racing fan or a hardcore sim racing enthusiast, cockpit view needs to be patched asap though.
Encuentro el control y la IA del juego muy justa, lo estoy probando y pasadas unas cuantas carreras, no me acaba de gustar.
Tener en cuenta que no lo comparo con un simulador, si no lo valoro como juego de carreras de coches.
Don't buy this game! Codemaster just spit on Grid fans AGAIN. Blurry cockpit view with pathetic engine sounds and **** physics! No thanks. If you are a PC user try Raceroom Racing Experience on Steam. It's free and it's good!
It's FAR from a glorious return...
