Where do i begin?
The Physics in this game are completely different from the past games, they are more like a simcade
Its not Assetto Corsa or Project Cars kind of simulation level but it still has a little touch as a Simcade game.
Haven't heard of half the cars in this game and didn't know they existed, surprised me a lot. just like Race Driver GRID back in 2008, full of surprises!
And of course the detail in the cars is insane in terms of damage and such.
I always wanted the customization at Autosport since 2008 and i finally got it!
Finally i can set down force, suspensions, brakes bias, differential etc the way i always wanted!
I can upgrade my engine, clutch and more stuff under my hood! insane!
A huge amount of tracks in this game, all around Europe, Asia, Australia, America and more based on real life. as good as it gets they are big as well.
Beautiful graphics, and my pc is not amazing and i still manage to run it on high with a 16:9 resolution and get a really good fps. so i'll admit, the game engine is as good as it is since always!
Obviously not the only game which has really realistic engine sounds and definitely not the best one.
But they are great and i love them, and they make me wanna boost my corsair all the way to 100% volume.
Compared to GRID 2, this game finally brought back the wide space roads from GRID 2008 which means multiplayer is actually playable without having the whole lobby totaled at the first few corners.
Match making is nice too, i can find races fast and easily without too much pain and also have a voice chat feature which is nice.
Weekly/Daily multiplayer challenges are cool too.
And i love the fact that i can buy whatever car i want again whether its a brand new car or a used car from "ebay".
Just like the old days in GRID 2008!
Supports joypads, gamepads, wheel, keyboard and everything you can dream of.
The game is also very balanced so its very playable with keyboard as well for a simcade.
Good to see the rewind feature is still here, very useful indeed!
And the replay feature after finishing a race also has an option to hide hud and upload on youtube directly from the game.
Also has various cameras positions which is cool as well.
The only down sides of this game i could think of are:
-A broken cockpit cam
-Can't make my own team and hire my own team mates
-No drifting mountains like the old days.
But overall, i'm glad codemasters listened to the community and its requests and gave us most of the things we asked for.
We were also introduced to Drag which is brand new to GRID which is cool as well!
8/10 from me, i really want those drift mountains.
