GRID Autosport is almost in a class of its own on the Nintendo Switch. The game is one of the best looking Switch games and is the best racing simulator experience available on the console. While games like Mario Kart 8 Deluxe and Crash Team Racing lead the system's kart racing options–GRID Autosport has shot to the top of the list if you want to race in real-world environments. The level of care that Feral has put into the Switch version is apparent with even more options to come. If you're in the market for a racing sim to take on-the-go, you can't do any better than GRID Autosport.

GRID Autosport is the nearest we've come to a TOCA Race Driver 4 and its lineage shows. Varied disciplines, edge-of-the-seat racing, rampantly aggressive AI and a terrific sense of speed add up to deliver an effortlessly good racing game. What GRID Autosport lacks in flair it more than makes up for on the track and, while there's a certain Groundhog Day feel to proceedings, on a minute by minute basis Codemasters' racer excels.

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.

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.

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.

Grid Autosport ditches the feature-bloat of other racing games in favor of a lean, race-first experience.

With over 100 cars and more than 25 different racing venues set over five distinct disciplines (as well as bonus DLC ones like destruction derby and drag racing), GRID Autosport is that rarest of beasts: a jack of all trades that doesn't sacrifice quality as a result. The addition of all previously released paid console DLC – right down to the cynical XP boost – is extremely welcome, but the complete removal of all local and online multiplayer features means this a strictly solo affair, and that might be a turn-off for many. Still, that doesn't change the fact that this is one of the best racing games on Switch.

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.

Codemasters are back on form with Grid Autosport, an intelligent, beautifully designed, visually stunning racing sim that seeks to rectify many of the complaints and problems from last year's Grid 2.

It makes progression through the long and winding career mode a touch tedious despite the excellent racing experience the game crafts. The more you play it the more it feels like a patched version of previous entries and less like a new iteration of the series. It doesn't mean you should avoid Autosport if you're looking for a return to form from Codemasters and the Grid name. Far from it. But it's a warning that the stripped down nature of this entry has taken away a bit too much to feel a complete experience even though the actual racing is the best I've played in years.

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.
