Anyone playing this? It was developed "in conjunction with the experts at Autosport".

 

I'm finding it good fun, but not got the hang of the drift cars at all :D

 

I like the wide range of tracks and the different disciplines.

 

One thing I don't like is that you can't watch replays in purely TV camera mode. It mixes up TV cams, with onboards and random near-car angles.

 

 

There are 22 locations with over 100 routes, each one featuring several variations. Most tracks have day and night settings.

Yeah it's a good laugh. I find I'm best at the open-wheel. Love the Indycars and A1GP Lolas. Yeah the drifting is pretty tough. I was terrible at it at first but then it just "clicked". You don't have to overdo the drifts to get the highest scores.

 

In before all the sim-snobs turn up. It's a good game. Very satisfying to play with the 360 controller.

OK for me so far.

 

Brands Hatch in reverse in an F3 car is hoot.

 

I've always liked the idea of racing circuits in reverse and this games does it.

The old MotoGP game on the Xbox let you do that. Sachsenring was fantastic -- at the Waterfall section you actually had to lift off for the crest of the hill or you'd go flying into the scenery.

In the race itself is good (in PS3/ Xbox game standard) , however the game menu to select a custom race / free run session is the worst design in any computer / console racing game I have tried in last 20 years. :down:  :down:  :down:

Good DLC news everyone.

 

Codemasters has released a new DLC pack for GRID Autosport that introduces four classic locations from GRID 2 and a brand new point-to-point game mode.

Available today for £4.79, the Sprint Pack promises to deliver "hours of single-player and online gameplay", and features a series of new Sprint Championships set across Hong Kong, Okutama, Cote d'Azure and the California Coast.

Ahh, DLC's... Instead of releasing a full game, and a rather large exp.pack, the release a game, then throw out DLC's for the price of 2 games after the initial release...Meh.
