The Grand Tour Game
Top Critic Average
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.

Viewed in context, there’s plenty of fun to be had here for fans of the show.
A strange yet relatively successful attempt to merge television with an episodic video game, that should at least please the show's fanbase.
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.
The Grand Tour Game delivers the streamed series, fitted with some small elements of gameplay.
As a game, there is no getting away from the fact that this is just an extremely basic arcade racer which pales alongside some of the bigger and better-known racing franchises. But as a way of delivering new and episodic game content, and merging TV and video games, it is quite innovative and really works.
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.
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.
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.

The Grand Tour Game isn't wonderfully exhilarating and there's a lot holding it back, but it does have brief moments in which it is fun.
