    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.

    After five years inside the garage, GRID comes back to the track with a great reboot. It is not as fast as DiRT or F1 reboots, but it offers spectacular races on a few circuits, specially the urban ones.

    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.

    Grid is a great looking game and features some excellent driving and physics. It's let down by a questionable damage system and boring design. From the games dull menus to no-frills racing, there's just not enough here to separate it from the pack.

    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.

    Grid is a visual spectacle, but offers a matt racing experience. You may be even better off with the recent Switch release of five-year-old Grid Motorsport.

    I don't know why the use score is so low. Perhaps these dudes missed the point of this game. It is not meant for hyper-realism, nor is it NFSI don't know why the use score is so low. Perhaps these dudes missed the point of this game. It is not meant for hyper-realism, nor is it NFS type kiddy racing game. While you certainly need to have a good understanding of driving dynamics, punishment for a small mistake will not be race-ending harsh. The point is to have fun. And the game certainly delivers that, which is most important. Expand

I understand that back in the beginning some were annoyed at the lack of content. I don't see that now as the game has 3 seasons worth of content. I love the simplicity of this game. You can get into a race quickly and the difficulty level is very scalable. There are lots of challenges you can complete in the game so there are lots of reasons for revisiting old races even if you have won them. I love watching the replays, especially when you take a nemesis off the road. Expand

    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

    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.

After playing this game, i have to say that they need to revive the Toca series. Grid 1 the old one, was actually good but anything from that got lazy. Autosport was good but not compared to Toca or Grid 1. Even the amount of achievements were lazy with Grid 2019. The career progress, don't get me started. Now, the good parts. Good graphics good sound, a lot of content, although not too many tracks, and that is it. Too bad, honestly. Expand

Codemasters could do better, as they did in the past. Expand
