    There are times when I want to play a racing game that requires a wheel and incredibly nuanced changes to my car's setup. GRID Legends provides a counterpoint to that style, and it's a ball of fun that never feels like it loses focus on being a competitive racing game. It's a racing game that isn't afraid to become a spectacle, while at the same time managing to take itself seriously in the areas that matter. The story mode is the flashiest, but the game remains just as compelling in any other mode. GRID Legends is a great excuse to have some automotive fun.

    ‘GRID Legends’ is a damn fun simcade racing game. While it’s not the most riveting story, ‘Driven to Glory’ is honestly a fun and intriguing story to make you want to keep going for hours and hours. The gameplay and overall game quality are solid, but not perfect, and visually it’s worth the time and energy ripping up the street or the track. EA and Codemasters are working to make this game evergreen with upcoming content and what they describe to be a cool online mode (didn’t report on that due it error issues on my end). This is definitely worth your time and money for sure.

    Grid Legends delights with superb orchestrated, entertaining races, but it leaves a lot of potential untapped in terms of career and team management.

    Much like the previous title released in 2019, GRID Legends will not revolutionize the history of racing games, but it is still very good arcade entertainment. If it does not go far enough in the depth of its career mode and in the possibilities of customizing the liveries, the title is on the other hand very complete on its most raw aspect.

    Grid Legends is a fun driving experience for fans, but it's pretty far from what Grid has always been for long time virtual drivers and has some ideas that needed a better refinement. Despite this, the game is enjoyable and full of contents to explore.

    And there is one more advantage of GRID Legends over its ancestor – graphics, obviously. Actually, the game looks really pretty on its own terms and won’t be ashamed in front of Forza or even Gran Turismo 7. Rain is especially well done; it may be the first time when I was impressed by weather effects nearly as much as in DriveClub (yup, the one released in 2014; this game still has stunning graphics). Also environments are very detailed and decorated with dense crowds of people or fireworks.

    GRID: Legends is a good arcade racer, but it doesn't offer enough new stuff from the 2019 GRID game, making it quite a dispensable game. The comeback of drifting is cool, but the story mode is quite lame, and most of the content seems just to have been ported from the 2019 opus.

    I love the game.
    A 6 hour story with a satisfying ending. Although, giving almost all the credit to the "leader teammate" was crap... Driver "Number 22" (You) literally saves the team he represents, only to be outshined by her...
    The cars handle great, apart from the dirt trucks... They handle like boats, barely feel like they steer, also they should be driven off road, not on tarmac....
    Happy that there is an upgrade system for the Career mode but really wished that the team you create is the one that is put in focus in the story mode...
    Anyway, I recommend the game.

    Grind Legends

    PROS:
    - performance was great on both PS5 and PC
    - various classes
    - improvement over Grid (2019)

    CONS:
    - still not as good as old Grid games
    - A.I. + it will cheat (something like "catch up" system) on higher tier
    - terrible menus
    - cringe Story mode with all the diversity check list
    - terrible/grindy career with DLC to speed it up
    - driving model while not as drifty as on older games, it's also very feel-less, no feedback whatsoever, very average and stiff
    - some unlucky people won't be able to finish career due to late stage bug

    Bottom Line:
    "Meeehh" - fun for an hour at a time, mentioned cons really get in the way. Replay Grid/Grid 2/Grid Autosport - you'll have more fun

    The bizarre story ruins what could have been an excellent realistic arcade racer.

    The bizarre story ruins what could have been an excellent realistic arcade racer.

    "Driven to Glory", the game's four hour campaign mode, is a lifeless and uninspired affair. The plot is no more detailed than a Saturday morning cartoon, in which you drive for a backmarker team that suddenly has the season of a lifetime! Yawn. The characters are one-dimensional and show no emotion, which results in a really grating experience as each FMV sequence has the intense emotional resonance of a Star Wars jedi council scene. The story itself also sometimes doesn't make sense - you're randomly told the rival team are "impossible to catch" and cheating, despite you winning every race up to that point. The world isn't fleshed out, you're never even introduced to the other teams beyond the main rival, and the forced diversity is just... weird. It's strange seeing an abundance of Chinese AI drivers in the game's equivalent to the NASCAR Camping World Truck Series.

    For the amount of money, time, and other resources they put into creating this story (if this was filmed during Covid - imagine the logistics), what they came up with could be eclipsed by middle school children told to write a racing story as a homework assignment.

    And it's a shame, because the underlying game is pretty good as a generic realistic arcade racer. The AI are tough but fair - a rarity in all types of racing games. Hell, they even have random events such as accidents or engine explosions which is really cool in longer races. There's a ton of cars & tracks to pick from - albeit most are asset flips from other Codies/SMS games - and the race creator UI is extremely user-friendly and probably the best I've ever used in a racing game.

    But they REALLY want you to care about the story. It dominates the box, the menus, and the characters continue to appear in races outside of "Driven to Glory." And I just can't. Stick with Grid 2019.
