Invigorating arcade racing let down by lightweight multiplayer and campaign modes.

Grid is way too lean on tracks but delivers its hyperbolic brand of Hollywood-style racing with style and confidence.

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.

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.

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.

The new Grid is a satisfying driving experience, but it lacks that "X factor" that makes your game unique or special.

An exciting return to form for the GRID franchise. This is a well thought and executed arcade racing game, with lots of events and races.
