That is pretty much all you can ask for with a racing simulator. This isn't a game I would normally play, but for racing fans looking for a pure experience without many gimmicks attached, GRID is a solid choice to pick up. It also serves as a good starting point for those curious about these types of racing games. The small changes of accessibility go a long way here for GRID, which puts it in a sweet spot that can cater to both fans and newcomers alike.
The argument could be made that if GRID had been an early-generation PS4 title, it would’ve been a bit more praised than it will be this late in the console’s life cycle. As that may be true, the title’s genuinely compelling AI mechanics and multi-faceted livery of vehicles help it stand on its own as the proper reboot that this franchise deserves. It may not feature all of the bells and whistles that we’ve grown accustomed to in 2019, but it’s certainly a solid foundation to rebuild a brand around.
Track selection is a little lean with a mix of real world and fictional tracks. Real world tracks hearken from Sepang, Sydney, and Indianapolis while the classic San Francisco track is resurrected. Havana is the site of another fictional track. There are 13 locations that tally up to 80 different routes thanks to being able to play them in reverse. You can also race them at night and in the rain. If you tire of the game’s AI racing, multiplayer racing is also supported.
