So, is it any good?
Well, it depends on what you expect.
But if you take it for what it is, you will discover a really good and enjoyable arcade racer!
Nothing more, nothing less.
It has good graphics, except for the blurry cockpit view, but with the dashboard cam I find it alright!
Sound is alright too, and the tracks are nice and detailed.
Even if some known tracks can be hard to recognize when you drive on them.
The damage model is excellent, with cracked windows, scratches and dents, twisted metal, lost car parts and sparks!
Your car will also be harder to drive and steer the more you crash / bump into things.
There are many cars and championship events with thrilling, exciting races.
10 hours in, and I have only scratched the surface of Modern touring championship and Open wheel, and tested some other modes.
I do multiply the number of laps in options though.
The AI is decent and somewhat competitive.
They are agressive and will do some cheap blockings, but they just trying to keep their positions and I don't find them to agressive.
What goes for the physics, I find it driveable and it handles better than Grid 1 did.
So I think it will please many casual players!
One thing I really don't like is the preprogrammed DLC!
I also bought the Touring Legends pack, a good pack, but no download was needed after the purchase!..
So they are already in the game, hidden away from us from the start!
That is really, really low Codemasters!!
So I say go for it!
But don't buy the DLC, atleast not to full price,
This kind of behavior from Devs should not be supported!!
