No flashy new features or buzzwords, just magnificent racing stemming from a refinement of Grid 1's greatness.
Grid Autosport promised proper motor racing and that's exactly what it delivers. The spirit of TOCA is finally back.
Grid Autosport is a fine racing game, though it's never a thoroughbred one. It's the muscle car that was Grid 2 stripped out and retooled for the track, but too often you can see the solder-work at the seams. In 2008, Race Driver: Grid was a partial reinvention of the racing genre, equipped with a handful of fresh ideas. Six years on, Grid Autosport - while a definite return to form for Codemasters - is simply a rediscovery of it.
Grid Autosport is often too ambitious for its own good, resulting in a diverse but inconsistent racer.
A functional and attractive sim that's the best serious Switch racer in a vacuum of serious racers. The genre itself has taken a step forward since the game's original release though, and seasoned racing fans will likely crave more excitement than Grid Autosport offers.
Despite some issues with the Switch's controller restrictions, GRID Autosport is a fantastic port that sets the bar for the realistic racers on Nintendo's hybrid console.
Five styles of driving all done justice with one of the most violent and emergent racing engines available make GRID Autosport a compelling title for both car enthusiasts and petrol heads alike. Even if your interest in cars is merely fleeting, GRID Autosport juggles realism and aggressive satisfaction to deliver an intoxicating mix somewhere between the joy of an arcade racer and the science of a true sim. Excellent.
Friendlier F1 handling in a Grid 2 wrapper, Grid Autosport is a tour through the Codemasters back catalogue. Single player is hampered by predictable AI, but tuning options and improved cornering elevates the multiplayer above Grid 2's.
GRID Autosport is the best driving simulator to hit a Nintendo platform over the last decades. Its large amount of content, demanding gameplay and sensations transmitted by the HD Rumble feature all contribute to make this a very interesting work, which went to great lengths to fit into the Nintendo Switch, to the point of allowing the player to choose between a better visual environment or a better game performance. A very welcome entry in the Nintendo Switch catalogue.
