Solid racing game. I just wish it had more style, like Forza does. It's hard to get your PC racing fix, since the best games are on console (Forza and Gran Turismo). I'd wait until Forza 6: Apex comes to PC this year.

You play as a mysterious racer, who can travel back in time if you fail pretty hard in endurance races.


It got really boring after a while, didn't even finish the ''story" mode. GRID 2 was better imo.

A really fantastic looking arcade racer that fills my racing fix when I just want to put in a few races. I normally can't put in more than two or three hours at a time though. It can't hook me in to play longer. I just end up getting bored.
The game is now almost two years old now and it's still $40. It's not worth $40. I got it in a Codemasters bundle I think. Got this and a few other titles for $15 (great deal!).
I really enjoy the Tuner, Open Wheel, and Street seasons, but I'm not a fan of this game's Endurance (AI don't suffer from wear) mode and I hate Tuner.
With a decent gaming desktop, I can run many of the settings on ultra, but have to lower some settings to keep the frame rate from dropping at high-intensity moments (especially when drifting with tire smoke).
Ravenwest are my sworn enemies. When I get there, I will only run one season with them to get the achievement. They can screw off after that.

Overall, it looks great, the AI are decent (but not perfect), and can fill that racing fix for about two hours at a time. Get it on sale. 50% off or greater.

This game is not perfect. This game is not a simulator. But I can say one thing: This game is so fun with friends!

Single player is okay, but Online is superb. And you definitely should buy DLC's when those are -75%. It's worth it!

ppl claim this is simcade but its all about how real u set everything up. if u want it to be sim then make it hard and turn off the assists! hands down the most realistic Ai, and the most fun Ai (lots of wrecks and pile ups) if u enjoy good close anf fast paced racing without hundreds of settings to deal with... loook no further. connect your wheel and go.. awesome graphics and price... really great place to start if new to sim community... totally worth buying just for the few tracks they have here that no one else does. YAS Marina, COTA, Mt Tremblant, Istanbul park and more! i would have a few hundred more hours logged but this is the second time i purchased. played through it first on xbox 360. no replacement for tri screen Surround gaming on PC!!

Its cool. The handling is pretty nice, the tracks are pretty nice ( while it misses some important like Laguna Seca) and overall it has very much variety in it races. While it has some things i dont like
1. The Medium AIs are to easy while the Hard AIs are a bit too hard.
2. You cant customize your cars in the career, you can tune the stiffness and stuff but you cant make your own liverys or changes wheels and stuff.
3. Its getting pretty boring after you beaten the second GRID series ( there are 3 GRID series in the game)

good game

more fun with race wheel

dope music

I like it because it has a lot of races.
I don't like it because I have to do a lot of races with one type or car and can't move on to the faster cars.

So, after I bought this game for about 6 dollars on *steam censorship*.com, I thought about making a review about this.

So, how does it drive?

Actually, better than I thought. I expected some kind of GRID 2-ish handling, but it drives way more like DiRT 3 with more grip and only on ashpalt. Although it is pretty much realism-trimmed, It´s still very fun to drive, especially the Street Cars.
And if you´re looking for the most realistic game of the GRID franchise, here you go.
The Drift Races still suck tho.

Content?

Yes.

How much?

Very much. Most tracks are taken from GRID/GRID 2, but all of them are redone. San Francisco looks way better now. But of course there are multiple new tracks, a few city tracks and race tracks like Hockenheimring and Red Bull Ring (I think, read that somewhere)
There is a huge range of cars, everything from numerous kinds of street cars, over classic japanese tuners, muscles and even damn racing trucks, to formula/indycars and touring cars.

Grafficks?

They exist. And it looks awesome for a game on an engine from 2006. And the difference in graphics between DiRT and GRID Autosport is like the difference between Battlefield BC and Battlefield 4.

ayy lmao, dis no sim racur, dis no hev weel optiuns.

You´re right, except you´re wrong. Codie´s fixed that in the meanwhile and if you got a Force Feedback Wheel, please try this, this is so much fun with a FFB Wheel.

Multiplayer?

Exists too. Haven´t tried it yet though.

Overpriced?

Actually not at all. GRID 2 is overpriced, I won´t pay 30 bucks for Tokyo Drift Simulator. But for the content this is actually wellpriced. Wouldn´t buy the DLCs though, not a fan of them anyway.

Cockpit view?

Yeeeeahhh-no. Something weird. You have a Dashcam and a normal Cockpit Cam, but the dash in Cockpit Cam is all blurred out for you, so you can´t see that Codemasters didn´t put an HQ Cockpit in your car or even the dials don´t work.

Story?

noone cares m8

The End?

Yes. Overall this is a Wellpriced, good looking, well drivable Racing Simulator. Get it. And if you´re a ch33ky ♥♥♥ n199a like me who doesn´t want to pay 40 bucks for a game, get it on *steam censorship* or *steam censorship* for way less money. Whatever it costs below 40 bucks, it´s worth it. Get it. NOW!

One of the BEST driving games currently available

GRID Autosport is an excellent arcade racer with superb vehicle handling, an intuitive and very responsive fun racer from Touring Cars to Open Wheel, there's something to please everyone. Also includes drifting, vehicle customisation, tuning unlocks... lots of fun.

Single Player mode is a bit boring.
but online Multiplayer.
OH yes, that's where the action is :))

GET GRID Autosport and come and join the fun

By far the best value in PC Arcade racers today. While games like Assetto Corsa and Project Cars concentrate on realizm and driving simulator game play, Grid Autosport balances nicely between Arcade and Sim racers. Course designs are easily familiar to the real world courses and course diversity is average. Custom Skins and the abilty to make groups is great but the online multiplayer sessions can be a bit confusing at times when you are trying to meet up with a buddy due in part to the cumbersome RaceNet interface which differs from regular online play. The stoyline, while lengthy and appears to be full of diverse content, ultimately forces a driver to be all things to all forms of racing, which si not something that actually happens in the racing world. Graphics are 9/10, Audio is 9/10, Controls support 9/10 and content 8/10 (just because I am not into all the tuner and drift stuff). Overall I rate the game 85-90 out of 100 in total game ranking & is worth the on sale price.

Pretty mediocre game all around, and a lot of the racing feels tedious and unengaging. The "Endurance" series is required if you want to progress in the game, and in that series tire wear is simulated, which is great, except the tires wear super fast, and the wear doesn't seem to affect the AI. Handling in other series' is dull, with the exception of the open wheel championships, which are probably the only series actually worth playing.

I would only recommend buying this if the price is $5 or less.

Great game! Graphics are good, great fps and not bug issues. I play the game quite frequently on play single player and online. Only downside to online is the other players crashing and taking you out on purpose. With single player the step between med ai and hard ai is quite big! but that just means i need to get better at the game,

Pretty fun racing game!

I expected it to be more realistic when it comes to car handling, but it is in fact quite arcady and a bit loose. I am playing with a Xbox controller and the controls are not super responsive and direct when it comes to the steering with the L joystick, but it's acceptable. You might need to get used to it a bit in the beginning, after that it's fine.

The game has a ton of cups and challenges to keep you busy for many many hours (enough content). Even with the arcady feel it is actually quite chalenging to drive against the AI! So far as I have played the amount of different tracks is quite low, I played for 7 hours and only driven half a dozen different tracks (and reversed), also the amount of different cars and classes is quite low.

One really noticable quality gap in the game is the cockpit view. It is really low detailed in most/all cars and they made the cockpit on the lower part of your screen blurry to camouflage it. It is extra noticable, because basically everything else in the game is pretty solid and good quality.

As for realism I think this game falls far below the racing sims on the market. Even Gran Turismo feels more real (direct/responsive) when it comes to car handling, but the AI in GRID is way more fun to race against and the races are more custimizable then in Gran Turismo. I also don't think that this game tries or was intended to be a realistic racing sim, but an enjoyable not over complicated racing experience. And that it does quite well.

Overall I think this is a pretty solid and fun racing game and worthy to pick up during a sale.
