    GRID (XBOX ONE/PS4/PC)

    For anyone looking for arcade thrills and spills coupled with a circuit racing vibe there's lots to enjoy here.

    I must admit, when I first started the game it wasn't all that involving. Up the rival difficulty, dial down the assists a bit, manual gearbox, in car view, lovely. Haven't won a race yet but the racing is great It could be quite a bit more hardcore too but I've found a sweet spot for me and I'm sure most peeps could achieve just what they want too. So while it's absolutely not a sim it can be simmed up to your liking.

    There's also a LOTR nemesis style system whereby if you're aggressive with another driver they'll become a rival and be just as aggressive back.

    The amount of events throws up a decent amount of diversity but content-wise it's no Gran Turismo. There's a fair bit but it may have to rely on dlc to keep things fresh in the longterm.

    So far I've raced a muscle car and a Mini (a proper Mini). This was a good way to start as they both couldn't have felt more different.

    There's some kind of Fernando Alonso endorsement too but I haven't dabbled with any of the single seater stuff yet.

    This is very much a game about the feel of racing and it does that brilliantly. It's big and loud arcade goodness all the way. And it looks absolutely lovely too. Very pretty game, smooth 60fps (playing on the One X, not sure whet it's like on owt else). So far so good.

    No, just a controller, but it still feels pretty great. To be honest it's hard to play any driving game with enthusiasm these days after having a decent wheel set-up last gen. It adds such a huge amount.

    I got mine on a Curry's sale and I have to say Codemasters games make stupendous use of the Force Feedback in Dirt 2, F1 2019 and now in Grid . This game is ace fun, I love the power slides and its nice to see AI crashes and huge flips
