If you like racing games, you definitely have a lot of options to choose from out there. Oddly enough, one of the best ones you could choose right now, GRID 2, just came out a year ago, yet here we are already talking about its successor. The point is that in order to recommend GRID Autosport, I have my work cut out for me. It’s not I didn’t love playing the game; I really did. The problem is that you may already own GRID 2 or one of any other titles that let you have a great time while your knuckles turn white. However, in my personal opinion—and I’ve played all the major racing games out there—GRID Autosport is the best by far. Even if you already own GRID 2 or you only kind of like racing games, this title is definitely worth your investment.
For one thing, it’s nice and affordable given that the game is available for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC. Still, like I said, I’ll put this title up against any other you can think of. Aside from being affordable, it’s user-friendly (something I can’t say for racing games), fun and yet still very challenging in an addictive way.
Part of the reason this game is so fun to play is because it’s also so easy to begin playing. That doesn’t mean any noob can come in, pick up a controller and start dominating though. It just means that you won’t have to dedicate hours to the game before you ever get to start enjoying it. That’s something I really enjoy. For one thing, it definitely makes it easier to get others to play when I don’t have to spend an hour explaining to them the most basic controls involved.
However, you can still trust this stripped down structure to deliver thanks to the EGO engine used to drive this game. The visuals are stunning too and will make you feel like you’re really in the driver’s seat hitting a bend at razor fast speeds.
Honestly, DiRT 2 is probably a second favorite racing title after this one and they have some important aspects in common, namely that you can just pick it up and start playing.
Nonetheless, this one wins for too many reasons to mention. Whether it’s the amazing graphics that show off crash damage, the countless racing disciplines you can enjoy or the most precision handling I’ve ever experienced, GRID Autosport is worth trying out.
