The Grand Tour Game
Top Critic Average
I was ready to trash this cash-in to high heaven, and no, it’s not going to bother Forza or Gran Turismo anytime soon as your favourite racing game. It’s an interactive companion to see if you could do any better at being a member of the crew better than Clarkson, May or Hammond. And with twelve more content drops incoming over the next three months, that twelve quid price tag is looking like a bit of a bargain. Better than getting fired for punching someone because a steak was cold.
Amazon's The Grand Tour video game has some good moments in its episodic set-up so far, but the overall blend of gameplay and show footage is jarring.
The Grand Tour Game could have been a decent little add-on to a brilliant TV show. Instead it crashes and burns at every turn. You can thank to ‘naff handling for that.
To be honest, I quite liked Grand Tour Video Game at first, it seemed like quite a novel idea and to begin with it was quite fun, however, the novelty soon wears off and becomes more monotonous.
Fans of Amazons The Grand Tour Show will enjoy The Grand Tour The Game. The concept of watching and Playing the Episodes is pretty good. Graphics and Gameplay are not state of the art. Fans of pure Motorsport-Games/ Simulations don't have to pit in for this game, it might be too casual for them.

The Grand Tour Game delivers the streamed series, fitted with some small elements of gameplay.
The actual interactive component of The Grand Tour Game is really quite poor, with awful handling and dated presentation making the races and challenges vastly inferior to the segments they attempt to replace, in between clips from the show you've already seen.
Viewed in context, there’s plenty of fun to be had here for fans of the show.
The Grand Tour Game doesn't deliver what's needed as an interactive experience and makes you long to watch the show without the irritation of anything else. As an experiment, it provides Amazon with plenty of useful results, all of which indicate something very different is needed to combine TV and gaming media.
Polygonal models aside, it really seems to have in hand a low-budget mobile game, devoid of inventiveness and poor both in terms of content and conceptual.
