GRID Legends Reviews
GRID Legends places its bets in growing upon the bases that made it a racing icon. It's not perfect but adds enough innovation and content to enjoy it for quite a long time.

Grid Legends' Driven to Glory story misses more than it hits, but this is an otherwise solid, if unambitious, racing game.
GRID : Legends is a good arcade racer, but it doesn't offer enough new stuff from the 2019 GRID game, making it quite a dispensable game. The comeback of drifting is cool, but the story mode is quite lame, and most of the content seems just to have been ported from the 2019 opus.

Codemasters racing thrives on light and shadow. To attract the largest number of players, GRID Legends seems to have lost in part the common thread that had characterized the very good reboot in 2019. The trumpeted story mode "Driven to Glory", despite the good intentions, fails to add to the storytelling that drama and epicness (it does so in an aseptic, artificial way) that characterize the world of motorcyclesport.

While DIRT 5 and F1 2021 remain Codemasters' best racing games to date, GRID Legends runs a very close second, with an enjoyably daft Story mode, absorbing Career, and a wealth of options to fiddle with. Driven to Glory, indeed.
'GRID Legends' is a damn fun simcade racing game.
Codemasters has put a good amount of thought into reinventing the GRID experience.
GRID Legends is a racing game that provides some cool elements to the formula but doesn’t do enough to stand out in a saturated market. The amazing graphics and solid controls are a plus, but if players aren’t racing game fans, they could skip this one, especially with the large price tag.
From the moment I fired up Grid Legends, I was impressed with the improvements and additions across the board. If you're a racing fan, an adrenaline junkie, or somewhere in between, Grid Legends should be given the chance to impress you.
Grid Legends is a fun driving experience for fans, but it's pretty far from what Grid has always been for long time virtual drivers and has some ideas that needed a better refinement. Despite this, the game is enjoyable and full of contents to explore.

GRID Legends misses a few opportunities to be truly excellent, but still exceeds the limitations of its predecessor to become arguably the best GRID game yet.
The new story mode brings richer single-player content to GRID Legends.

This isn't entirely surprising, given the amount of leeway (and subsequent lack of punishment) given when entering a corner hard under brakes, or applying full throttle at the apex of said corner.
Grid Legends is another great racing game from Codemasters, showing that with more support from a publisher like EA, the team can put out even better racing titles.
A return to arcade, a return to the docks, a return to drifting, and a return to putting fun above all else. This is what Grid should be about, enough fun to be had with the story and career modes, but an absolute hoon with a couple of mates in multiplayer.
With GRID Legends, Codemasters has delivered one of the most generous and inclusive racing games of recent years. Though while its moment-to-moment action is pretty much second to none, its career mode just doesn’t quite get its hooks in you like it should. Throw in limited multiplayer offerings, and you have a racing game that’s great but not spectacular. If you want to fling cars around a whole load of city-based tracks and gleefully trade paint with your competitors, this is the racing game for you. Just don’t go in expecting to get all that invested in your career exploits.
GRID Legends is a very good chaser for someone who is not looking for huge challenges, and will treat the game more as a nice escape from everyday duties.

Overall, GRID Legends feels like a bit of a missed opportunity. Its on-track racing is really good fun, and with the right AI and event tweaks, and a little more content, it'd be a really solid sequel to GRID 2019. As it stands, it feels very safe and lacks the personality to really stand on its own amongst the competition. It gets real close to mimicking what PGR did so well all those years ago, but something's missing. Sparks often fly out on the track, but Legends doesn't quite have the spark to make its arcade action stick.
GRID Legends makes racing exciting again thanks to its concise story mode, strong AI competitors, dramatic races, vehicle variety, and strong multiplayer. It's just a pity that most tracks are too familiar and team management is lacking.
But at the end of the day, it's essential to always know what to expect. GRID Legends isn't by any means supposed to be a racing sim. It's still an arcade title, and as long as you have this mind, there's absolutely no chance you'll end up disappointed.
