The Drag Pack



The stifling heat, the shuddering vibrations, the smell of burnt rubber, the deafening roar of the engines; and of course, the earth-shattering acceleration.

At the pinnacle of GRID Autosport’s drag racing are the mighty “Funny Cars”, so-called because there is nothing normal about them. The experience of driving one is like an all-out assault on the senses, as drivers try to wrestle eight thousand horsepower into submission as they are propelled at speeds in excess of three hundred miles per hour. That’s fast enough to cover a quarter-mile in less than 4 seconds.

The Drag pack will become available in a few hours time and for all the info, head on over to the blog

+ Dazzling array of cars
+ Great-sounding engine noises

- Cockpit view is low-res, blurry, and the needles don't even move
- Cars seem to handle like a barge. With wheels. That is aquaplaning. On the Moon.
- AI seem to have two modes: religiously follow driving line; or swipe me off the track.
- Damage modelling is rough. I only seem to pick up minor scratches, and then lose parts of my car. Damage model doesn't seem very realistic. In fact, it doesn't even seem to be satisfyingly unrealistic. Just bits falling off.
- Game seems horribly unoptimised for my set-up. Alas.

All in all, I would say that this game is a waste of £29.99. I'm glad I got it for free when I bought this PC, because there was no way I would buy this on sale.

11/10 - IGN

Unlike the past two Grid games where you could be in 1st place by quickly drifting turns, this focuses on braking and the mastery of cornering. Grid Autosport is fun as well as rewarding, especially once you learn the nuances in handling that increase your lap times. A great simcade racer.

Dear fellow players. I have just bought this game recently and in my opinion it is amazing. The best thing to mention is that the game focuses on the player only, you do not have to go through a boring career method, you can freely do the events as you would like to.

The game has really wide range of motorsport genres, you can find almost everything what you like, including drift, formula car series etc.

The gameplay, with the RPG elements also fantastic. In online games, you will start the game with a loan vehicle, which are the slowest one. As you progress and earn money for racing, you can finally buy your first car and upgrade them through your online career. As soon as your car is leveled to the highest level, you will experience some really difficult and enjoyable races online.

The online community is also good, the game has an “impact rating system”, which means if you make an impact with other players, your rating will be lowered and you will be temporarily banned from some of the events which has impact rating enabled. If you would like to improve your impact rating, you need to drive safe and look out for the other racers and stay away from impacts at all costs.

The mixture of arcade and simulation style is also a good idea, it is not easy as an arcade game for example Need for speed series and it is not that difficult either. You need to have some skills, if you would like to finish in the top places, so the challenges will last long enough to play lot of hours.

Only two negative thing to mention. The first is the blurry HUD, which is painfully awful. I do not even know, why codemasters did not do it perfectly (they do it right in the first GRID). Secondly, the silly AI is can be really annoying. The system did not even notice whether I am on the track or not.

Altogether, a game which is really fun to play in my opinion and I will play many more hours in the future. Hopefully, the negative problems will be solved in the future through a patch or something. I am really recommend this game, if you are looking for good competition, it is an 8 out of 10 for me.

I am really looking forward to see you soon in my rearview-mirror! :)

I'm a big fan of Codemasters since Toca Touring Car and have really enjoyed playing GRID and GRID 2.
For me GRID Autosport takes this to another level. Great car handling and tracks and the best thing about this game is the different racetypes like Touring Car, Open Wheel, Street and Tuner. Every race brings something new.
If you like racing games this is one you've got to own.

Utter Rubish, I have played i would say most of the codemaster racing games from the first TOCA thru to now and many others starting as far back as Geoff Crammonds formula one grand prix in 1992, and by far this is the worst one, the so called AI is a joke the laws of physics only seem to apply to your car, a waste of money.

This game actually kinda sucked compared to Grid 2, but that's just my opinion, if you think you'll like it it than you should buy it, but as a racing game not comparing, I say it's pretty good. 7.0/10 Dash Apporved

If I had not bought this at half price for everything I would have been sorely dissapointed. Even at that price its no where near as good as Grid 2. Confined to set cars the list goes on for everything this game isn't. Been playing it for the last 6 hours now it crashes on me. This needs work and a lot of it to really bring it up to speed. Its as if they tried to , hell I don't even know what they were trying to do over Grid 2. Sure no improvements. I wouldn't even say the graphics are as good . Gotta love that one , download a texture upgrade for the game . WTF is that about???? GARBAGE!

Nice cars, tracks and game modes. However, the engine noises sound repetitive in many of the cars, as if they recycled the sound files of many cars. The textures of cars could be better. Driving dynamics are solid, very responsive :)

a good game indeed. The only problem this game lacks are cockpit view not very good for a 2014 car game. If there is a patch to solve this and other problems then i would like to install it

Typical Codemasters racing game, good fun but not extremely realistic. Ran out of steam after playing the Touring Car events though - may be redeemed with the endless DLC released for it but generally a throw away challenge.

I have played racing games since the PS2 and GRID:Autosport, a game that is truly a Simulator, Almost as fun as Gran Tursimo and Forza: Motorsport.

I would definitely recommend this game!! The game looks and runs like a dream. The only con is that the AI is extremely aggresive and looks to overtake you by any means. On the otherhand this is also a pro because who really wants to race and have no competition? The AI will certainly make you adjust your racing style while preparing you for multiplayer

The PC auto career sim you've been waiting for. Everything that your Gran Turismo/Forza junkie could want from a career auto sim is here. Only drawback: The game doesn't let you choose your specialty in career mode and forces you to do lots of race types and modes that you may not be interested in.
