Grid Legends fall short and leave us with a feeling that the franchise is still lost, searching for a path or identity. It has little to offer in the face of similar games that achieve greatness. Ultimately, it's a race with nothing glorious, nor legendary.

In the end, Grid Legends with all its strengths and weaknesses is not the product that was promised.

‎GRID Legends repeats with an exciting arcade driving proposal. It may sin of being too continuous, but the formula works quite well and nostalgia is used to give it a more special touch. More circuits, more cars, more races and the same dynamics, which can sin of being unambitious and not really taking the baton of the new generation. However, it is a proposal that will satisfy arcade lovers looking for something more concrete in circuits.‎

GRID Legends doesn't do anything particularly new or ambitious, opting to stay close to the series' strong structure and add more content compared to its predecessor. More ambition would certainly be help to draw more attention to it, but regardless, it's still an excellent racing title.

GRID Legends is a typical racing simulator that doesn't have what it takes to pull ahead.

There are times when I want to play a racing game that requires a wheel and incredibly nuanced changes to my car's setup. GRID Legends provides a counterpoint to that style, and it's a ball of fun that never feels like it loses focus on being a competitive racing game. It's a racing game that isn't afraid to become a spectacle, while at the same time managing to take itself seriously in the areas that matter. The story mode is the flashiest, but the game remains just as compelling in any other mode. GRID Legends is a great excuse to have some automotive fun.

GRID Legends does an admirable job of keeping pace with its rivals with a steady title offering all a racing fan would expect. Every aspect is done to an admirable standard from graphics, modes and handling. This is recommended for fans of the genre but also for newcomers looking for an arcade feel mixed with their realism. With the excellently cheese fest of story mode and fun integration of the nemesis system, there's something for everyone here.

GRID Legends is a good game that can keep entertaining fans of arcade circuit races for a decent number of hours. Although the story mode is not very successful.

GRID Legends is every bit the successor to 2019’s GRID that it should be. There’s a lot to love here, and this is Codemasters at their best. You have a compelling story with great characters full of representation and diversity, multiplayer that works untethered to a mode or platform with ease, and top-notch racing and competition that’s unrivaled. GRID Legends takes risks this time around, giving variety where it’s needed, and is an intense arcade-meets-simulation racer that simply does it better.

As far as gameplay goes, Codemasters did a solid job, by and large. GRID Legends’ engine makes the play fast-paced and intense, thanks to hard-charging vehicles and an AI that’s not afraid to get aggressive sometimes.

If you're searching for a balance of arcade and sim-style racing full of varied events, sublime controls and great sound design, then you're already in the right place. GRID Legends has such quality content that'll keep you coming back long after the credits roll.

Grid Legends continues the series streak of failing to fully capitalize on its ideas or finding a unique identity. There are still racing thrills to be had like in almost every Codemasters title, but its underwhelming story mode and grindy career mode really hold it back.

GRID Legends is the place to go when you're not sure what type of racing you want, but you know you want to drive fast. The vast array of modes and vehicle categories make it a jack of all trades sort of racing game, and while Gran Turismo 7 may appeal to the racing enthusiasts a little more when it launches next week, GRID Legends has a brilliant story mode and the chaotic nature of online racing means it's the prime racing candidate for a laugh with your mates.

GRID Legends lives of ups and downs: it makes decisive steps forward compared to the previous episode, with a good technical realization and a frantic and fun driving model, but it fails to differentiate itself enough when switching cars, flattening the gaming experience. It's suitable mainly for those who are looking for entertainment without too many frills, but less recommended for those seeking something deeper and more refined.

The problem with Grid Legends isn't that it's bad, it is that it could've been way better as this team have proven with many of their titles through the years that they can achieve greatness time and time again. Every thing here is done in a way that feels only serviceable but with a little push here and a little trim there, the whole thing could've been so much more.

As the behemoth that is Gran Turismo 7 looms in its March 4th release slot, GRID Legends offers a more user-friendly and arcade-like racing experience. One without the intricate minutia of the GT franchise. What it lacks in realism and subtlety it makes up in graphical bombast, sheer fun, and customization options.

‎GRID Legends positions itself firmly between the pure arcade racers and the real racing SIMS and feels very comfortable there. The races are largely no-nonsense, but do not require in-depth knowledge under the hood. The racing itself is very satisfying and offers quite a few cars to race on a diverse number of tracks and locations. If expansion is desired anywhere, it is mainly there, in the number of locations.‎

Grid Legends doesn't do anything particularly wrong, but doesn't do anything particularly interesting either. Its racing gameplay is typically solid, as is the Codemasters way, but this studio has pushed the limits of the genre far higher in the past than it does with this relatively safe offering.

GRID Legends is a mismatched racing game with a surprising story mode and features. The gameplay is an awkward mix of simulator and arcade that doesn’t lend itself to either’s strengths, and with puzzling direction will likely alienate fans of both. Yet, Driven to Glory and the sensational crashes in races make for good fun. With Codemasters’ car expertise and implementation of hardware accessories, the experience is worth trying. Still, coming up against other big-name racing series, I don’t think GRID Legends will make the podium finish.
