GRID Autosport arrived somewhat unexpectedly, for which it feels more like a GRID 2.5. But with the return of the driving seat view and no singleplayer story campaign, will this be the GRID game that fans have longed for.
A wealth of content and a sparkling port make Grid Autosport the best non-kart racing game on Nintendo Switch. It’s an essential purchase for fans of the genre and a great entry point for players ready to graduate from their Cat-Cruisers and Biddy-Buggys.
With the tank full of content, GRID Autosport is so well adapted to the Nintendo Switch it may be the best racing game on the platform so far.

GRID Autosport, despite not being a new game, rightfully becomes the best driving simulator on Nintendo Switch. Technically commendable, loaded with content, and with great care that the Feral boys have put in the game, and they continue to put it into the game. It lacks the multiplayer mode, and obviously this has an impact on the score, but the developer has announced that they are working in it, so the title becomes a must for lovers of simulation in the system, although the game is also friendly with the new users.

Grid Autosport is a pretty fun racing title, but in the pursuit of addressing every bit of feedback after Grid 2, Codemasters hasn't delivered the most cohesive experience. You still need to endure some of the disciplines that you may not like in order to progress through the career, and the two cockpit cameras feel more like a fan-made mod than something devised by the developer itself. Throw in the erratic AI and you might get annoyed quite a few times while playing Autosport.
GRID Autosport isn't just an apology to irate franchise fans; it's an enormous and polished racer that caters to fans of practically any racing discipline. From TOCA and Formula 3 to street circuits and party games, online and solo, Autosport lets you race on your terms, even if it lacks personality off the track.
Reusing tracks drags the career down and highlights other flaws. Multiplayer has good features, but is hurt by paltry income and wait times. GRID Autosport is a disappointing racing grind that falls well short of the original.
GRID Autosport does nothing majorly wrong, but at the same time fails to deliver the pulse-racing excitement expected from a modern racing title. Fans of the GRID franchise, and Codemasters' racing games in general, will be perfectly content and love it for all its flaws. For the casual gamer, the overall experience is perhaps just too underwhelming to recommend over Gran Turismo or Forza Motorsport.
So many of Grid Autosport's strengths, from its racing style to the focus on single-player gameplay, fit perfectly on the Nintendo Switch. Upon playing this port, it makes a ton of sense as to why Codemasters ported over the five-year-old game rather than one of its more recent offerings. It isn't a classic by any means, but it is full of content and is a racing game that everybody can enjoy.
GRID Autosport, in its Switch incarnation, is a technically accomplished port of a solid entry in a genre defining franchise that falls right in-between arcade fun and driving sim
