Introducing GRID Autosport

We’re very pleased today to announce GRID Autosport, the next game in the GRID series and descendant of TOCA Touring Cars.

GRID Autosport aims to move the series back in line as a more authentic racing game and below you’ll be finding out some of the ways we’ll be doing that. Hopefully, you’ll be seeing plenty of news, shiny screenshots and video on your favourite websites and in magazines on our announcement, but we thought it’d be a good time to talk directly to you about what the game is, why we’ve done it and the direction we’re headed in. Particularly as this game is, at its heart, inspired by you guys, our core community.

On release of GRID 2, I think it’s fair to say that through listening to you guys and a after a substantial amount of reflection, we hadn’t quite achieved everything we set out to do. We’re proud of the game, really delighted with some of the great reviews for it, but we’re not above admitting that we made a few decisions that perhaps we shouldn’t have, and perhaps moved some of the aspects of the game too far away from our core fanbase.

Its a very good game though for me not as good as the Grid One was. I just like more simulation than it's in this part. The grid one gave a choice in multiplayer. This one does not. Anyway, playability is still very good, competition and player development makes it almost imposible to stop playing the effect "just one more race" is definitely there, then you become a new car and have to test it and so on. Easy to play, hard to master. And nobody should be angry that it is not an Gran Tourismo or a Forza. Graphics 7/10, Sound 8/10, Gameplay 9/10. Arcade 70% Simulation 30% Gameplay isnt the most important thing for me but I give it a nine out of 10 score because of the DLC politics.

The biggest issue with GRID 2 (and GRID 1 to an extent) is how much of a realist are you?
If realism and or simulation of how race cars really handle is important to you, then GRID 2 is the worst of the bunch.

A comparision I like to make on how the cars feel in Grid 2 is with Ridge Racer as the handling in GRID 2 follows the same overly eager grip that allows you to take a 90 degree turn at 120 mph.

While the realism of GRID 2 is no where as dumbed down as a title like Ridge Racer, it IS pretty basic.

If you have ANY experience in driving an automobile over 90 mph, then you will know
that the cars in GRID 2 do not behave realistically at all.

Graphically the game is fine. Nice effects that don't bog my system down.

However, the gameplay and races themselves tend to get stale rather quickly.

Once you have raced a certain type of race don't expect to see much difference in setup, length or quality of the AI from race to race either.
The AI doesn't "get better" or any such luck, what you start with is what you get.

The multiplayer in GRID 2 is dead (in the US at least) and has been for a long time.
I have yet to find one single multiplayer session located in the US and no one ever joined any sessions I created.

In the U.K. their seems to be a bigger following to non-oval type racing and so you can usually find more multiplayer options, but not many Steam users are not willing to fiddle with Steam settings to get locked into U.K. race servers.

All and all, GRID 2 was a big step back in the series with features missing, or massive DLC to get the whole package required.

I hear GRID Autosport (Grid 2.5?) is a step back to the Grid 1 roots, but to be honest GRID 2 destroyed my faith in the GRID franchise to keep me away from any hope of liking it again anytime soon.

If you are looking for a good arcade racer, GRID 2 is fine in short bursts.

However, if you are the type to invest in a wheel and pedals and know the difference in how a car handles with or without automatic gear box, then I would stay away from GRID 2.

An arcade racing game. Great damage simulation. Yet another racing game tells you that drift is way better than grip.

娱乐爽快的赛车游戏,里面的车损系统一直是我喜欢grid系列的原因之一。游戏里面漂移比抓地过弯快,所以必须得漂移╮(╯_╰)╭......

This game is no simulator, and i've only played with gamepad.
After 7 hours I have to say i'm disssapointed, coming from GRID 1.

The game now focuses on city circuits with different gamemodes (Elimination, circuit changes on the go...) and doesn't focus on real competitions like the first one no Open wheel/DTM/GT/LMP classes of events and no Lemans Resistance races when the season ends. In 7 hours i've only visited 4 circuits so far, with no serious competition on them (just regular races, with different car classes on the same race), and the handling i'd say is a bit worse than on the first, with they wanting you to drift in every corner.

The plot of the game is to make a new series of racing globally, taking the best drivers of each part of the world. in each part of the world there are different gamemodes. (guess what: in japan they drift)

The game also feels like it puts together different vehicle classes and they more or less perform the same (Chevrolet Camaro against a Alfa Romeo 4C comes to mind)

And the whole point of 'we have to get fans from social networks to talk about us' with the TV show stuff (The game's storyline, i'd say) just feels for 12 years old.

I'd say they wanted to make the game easier for younger people.

I really liked GRID 1, but this one is average, shouldn't call itself GRID.
