Free Demoman Derby DLC


Shortly after the release of GRID 2 we released some free DLC that focused on the Demo Derby aspect of the game, and for Autosport we went one step further by including that content within the game straight from the get go. Not to be out done by our previous efforts we’ve teamed up with Valve to offer our PC players a very special version of Demo Derby.

The Detroit Stadium becomes the ‘Badlands Stadium’ complete with trackside sponsorship from Mann Co. and your other favourite Team Fortress 2 corporations; such as Scoot’s Canoe, Jimi Jam, Gummy’s Burgers and more.

There are even a couple of Aperture Science flags flying, and the giant video wall now displays scenic messages, encouraging you to pay a visit to the likes of Gravel Pit and Teufort. There’s even a special ship hidden within the track scenery, let us know if you find it!

For all the info, head on over to the blog

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!!

This turned out to be a fun game it looks great and feels great, im glad codemaster went the way they have with this title, racenet is always fun with weekly challenages.

Plenty of game play and things to do plus lots of DLC's including drag racing one which i like so the season pass is worth the money, great looking cars with AI that likes to get rough, drifting mode is super fun one of my favorite modes

It worked well with my setup which is always a bonus

Only issue was clutch or shifter lag on G27

I wish i bought this game when it was released

0/10 for incomplete game and too much 'launch DLC'

Multiplayer aspect is either non-functional or dead- started up the game to not be able to join ANY servers if ANY kind what so ever. Don't even try to blame user error. I'm not doing any stupid fix that codemasters should have done. Bottom line multiplayer DOESN'T WORK. If the game advertises that it does have MP functionality that is a straight up lie. Look up how many people can't join any servers and stupid fixes and let that speak for itself.

Coming from a long time GRID 1 player (600+ hours) this game tried to address everyones outrage to how terriblke Grid 2 was. Welll... they tried but didn't listen to what the customers wanted. People straight up told them to copy Grid 1 physics and have a cockpit view. Guess What?

They screwed both of those simple request up. Cockpit view is a half ♥♥♥ low quality job that is laughable by todays standards. Driving physics are bad.. not bad as grid 2 but they are not enjoyable like Grid 1. I enjoyed driving in grid 1, The cars feel off and are not anything like cars in Grid 1 were.

Grid Autoport lacks the soul of its predesessor, I feel ripped off they even put Grid in the title and tried to play it off like "ohhh yea we understand Grid 2 was a big pile of steaming dog poo.. Here's grid autosport its like grid 1"

Except it's not.. GG codemasters

I'm only 5 and a half hours into the game, so take what I say with that in mind. I'm also an intermediate level racer.

I like the "sim-cade" genre, I like Gran Turismo and Forza a whole lot. Unfortunately, Neither Sony or Microsoft would ever see those particular cash cows on the PC. GRID is one of the few options on PC.

Okay, usual complaints that PC gamers have on console ports- Controller oriented UI. Still, not nearly as bad as say, SHIFT 2 was. Uneven graphics. Wierd sound stuff. (I noticed it most when driving an open wheel car, the wind sound would go away if I looked side to side or behind me.)

On to the meat-

Limited Tuning, you can't really fine tune the car, just move some sliders around.

The team offers thing is wonky- yeah I get it, you only have so much choice in pro-level racing who you drive for and who's graphics are on your car. But it's a game. Come on man.

Cars are extra, super, crazy tail happy- I expect this from a heavy, vintage V8 Sedan, NOT a super high downforce openwheel car. The opening level GT's are nearly undrivable in my feeling. The Dalara F312 has HORRID snap oversteer even when you click all those dumb sliders to what should be the most stable settings. It's an open wheel car, it has tremendous mechanical grip AND downforce, I expect it to get loose if I kill all that downforce but NOT when I'm at speed.

The AI is set to murder- they don't do clean racing. They love to shunt you, cut you and generally drive like ♥♥♥♥♥. Every race is a street fight in this game.

It makes you Drift. Drifting isn't racing. Drifting is a hell of a show, but it isn't racing and I've never enjoyed it. (I prefer to get my drift on running tail-happy Sixties race cars or Rally cars in various other games.)

Unlicensed/Fake cars. :(

The pricing/amount of DLC is silly. I bought the Drag pack because of how poorly represented that aspect of motorsports have been in the game world... It does it half right at best. Staging is there but it leaves out the burnout box. It just doesn't feel right anyhow.



Also, I bought the game on impulse, I broke my own rule- "Don't pay Codemasters again until they FIX Dirt3." I still want them to fix Dirt3.

Ok driving game but the semi sim semi arcade doesnt feel good here, i rather play the forza games they do it better. also it feels unfinished. singleplayer feels boring as the progression is boring, but the muliplayer got it right with player xp and everything including the rewarding unlocks. customization is limited to basic paint and vanilla vinyls, so you cant go artsy and show off creativity(a missed oppurtunity) online. Again other sim/arcade that are older did it better(nfs:prostreet?)
good racing game if you're looking for something deep instead of expansive. Avoid if you play racing games not that often.

PROS:

- Cars look awesome from the outside, Tracks and locales are breathtaking when graphics are turned up.
- Challenging in a way that makes you want to get better. Not easy, but gratifying when you master turns.
- I personally, in real life, drive a recent model Ford Focus, and the control of the Focus ST in the game is as i would expect when driving the ST version of my car. If i made it a point to negotiate turns as i would in real life, it worked out better.

CONS:

- HOWEVER (on the last point) the ST is known for it's ludicrous cornering ability, and i had to upgrade the car and Soften the front suspenstion/stiffen the rear suspension to get the most realistic driving experience one should expect from the ST. I could be biased but the car is an autocross machine and handles perfectly well just as stock.
- car interiors ARE A JOKE. I only play racing games in first person in-car view so as to fully immerse myself in the experience. i hate to compare this to Need for Speed, but if you look at Shift, the interiors, even for the low-end/old drifter cars, are immaculately rendered, and you can look around. in Grid, looking left or right blinks the screen left or right to an un-interior generic side view, giving me no frame of reference because my driver didn't turn his head. In addition, on graphical settings where the cockpit isn't blurred, the instrumentation is blocky and disgusting. at night, no dashboard or other interior lights are visible. Again, i drive a focus, and although the shape of the top of the dashboard is correct (even reflecting *almost* as i would expect when the sun hits it, i'm sorry but at night that console needs to be LIT. So yeah, Codemasters, MASSIVE missed opportunity with the car interior. i can't bring myself to look left or right because what i get is a generic blank view of what's on the left or right because my driver doesn't turn his head like NFS Shift so i have no frame of reference, and the worst part is it's just as well because what IS rendered of the interior of the car is a half-♥♥♥♥♥ POS anyway in both texture and polygon terms. Bad bad bad car interior.

That's it, every other part of the game is straight up FUN, with beautifully rendered and presented cars on beautiful tracks and HOLY ♥♥♥♥ I'M DRIVING IN PARIS THIS IS SO COOL and the driving is awesomely gratifying in just the right realistic correct way that one can get better at before they know it. Car interiors are disgustingly, DISGUSTINGLY disappointing though. Need for Speed: Shift, i'm looking at the exact interior of a Lamborghini Reventon from radio to seat stitching to AC vents. Grid, i'm looking at something a 6 year old made using Duplo bricks.

  • [ ]

    PS: the yellow paint is on the stock ST is just the right hue, and it is indeed shiny but not as much as is presented in the game where it looks as glossy as a trombone. The real Tangerine Yellow ST is almost almost flat with a slight metallic shine to it. But don't worry, NFS: Most Wanted got it wrong too. Thanks for the great game!!!! :)

How is GRID Autosport?
In my opinion, this is the true successor to the orignal GRID from 2008.
Where GRID 2 turned out to be a mere fun racer, this release is back on the right track.
It improves the original GRID in every aspect. And what it does is not only good,
but sets the standard in PC Racing Games.
Finally, I am able to trash Shift, Shift 2 Unleashed, Race07, GTR Evolution. etc.
All those RaceSims which promised everything, but GRID Autosport has it all.
Painstakingly I have tried all patches , whatever, to make those Racing Games worth my time,
where GRID Autosport delivers out-of-the-box.
Better handling, better graphics, better driving physics, better cockpit perspective,
and especially it offers more fun.
Codemasters really proves to be quite good at what they are doing.

The Grid series is about fun. I haven't decided if Autosport is better than the original, but it's doing it right. The AI does some wonky things from time to time, but so do actual dumb people online. Where it counts, though, the Grid series is really satisfying.

Grid—1, 2, and Autosport (among other Codemasters games)—are enjoyable, challenging, and compelling. That's what I'm looking for.

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!

This Review is more of a First Impressions to be honest. The Only reason I got this game was because they announced VR support and fully support the Oculus Rift DK2.

A massive tip for those that want to run the game in vr is to get OBS.
OBS acts as a way to be able to view the game mirrored to a monitor via the preview option. This enables you to have full visibility of the menu as the menu's do not currently render in VR (This is understandable as they were never meant for it)

Initially I was underwhelmed with the game after I managed to get it running,

The VR is actually done very well with full positional tracking enabled realistic 3d environments with a cockpit view. The cockpit feels like an after thought though. It is too basic and other games do a far better job with interiors. The mirrors are not usable because they are very dark to the point where you can not see anything other than the sky reflecting for some reason? The recent patch does add a rear view mirror though which is great but I would love to be able to use the side mirrors to block overtakes and judge where the competion is.

I play full manual with the Logitech G27 which is fully supported. BUT THERE IS NO OPTION FOR FORCE FEEDBACK only vibration...

BUT... you can download Force feedback files from GRID 2!! UNOFFICALLY then overwrite and BOOM full force feedback enabled and this is a game changer!!

This brings the game to life and actually lets you feel the car like you should. These files should have been implemented WITH the game though and this is a serious issue that many will not be able to overcome. This will probably mean that I cant go online in GRID because of modified game files.....

The single player game is such a challenge though that even on the lowest setting you will be in for a fight! The racing feels exciting and reminds me of aggressive touring the game is very exciting when you are trading paint in the pack hustling and fighting for positions.

There is massive room for improvements to be made. I would still 100% recommend this game to anyone with an Oculus Rift and will be putting a lot of time in and do not regret the purchase.

Hope this helps
