Maintaining all the trademarks that distinguished it from other arcade racers, Grid has returned boasting driving just as engaging as before. Limits are reached in some core areas of gameplay such as though such as the number of locations, and the formula may prove stale for those looking for a road less traveled.
However, taken on its own merit, GRID is a fantastic audiovisual experience, a decent racing game, and a barebones package. It's the epitome of just enough, but enough is the optimal word here. Here's hoping the next GRID can kick on bigger, better, and more ambitious things.
Codemasters' attempt to reboot the GRID franchise feels a bit unnecessary mainly due to its shallow campaign, and lack of content.

Grid is way too lean on tracks but delivers its hyperbolic brand of Hollywood-style racing with style and confidence.
A masterly racer that gets to the very essence of motorsport's magic
Some of the finest simulated driving you can find on PC and console, but with a single-player career mode that's not as fully fleshed out as you'd expect for the money.
Codemasters' skill in the genre makes Grid a competent entry, but nothing more
Returning fans will remember why they enjoyed the series, but they will also realize why it hasn’t been missed all that much in the past five years without an entry.
After five years inside the garage, GRID comes back to the track with a great reboot. It is not as fast as DiRT or F1 reboots, but it offers spectacular races on a few circuits, specially the urban ones.

GRID is an enjoyable racing game for those who want to enjoy some close racing without worrying about camber angles. The market needs games like this to provide light and shade. I was hoping this new GRID would be a fresh start, but it's a last night's takeaway re-heated. I enjoy leftovers – cold pizza is one of life's great pleasures – but that doesn't make the perfect racing game when the rest of the world has moved on.
