Interview: Kicking The Tyres Of GRID Autosport

Race Driver GRID still stands as a benchmark for racing games.

It pushed too far into accessibility and bundled weak handling with a tedious structure. Now GRID Autosport is out at the end of June…

Feature: You too can master the car wot goes fast

Off To The Races – Breaking Into Driving Sims, Part 1

Mr Craig Lager of GamingDaily fame takes to the podium to present a two-part guide to getting started in - and ultimately mastering - racing games.

We're not content with just one high-concept ultromegoXmasfeature this year, oh no.

GRID Launch Event: It’s on the PC too, you basts.

GRID Demo: Quite Good

Just in case anyone missed it, the GRID demo is out now. It's 893mb and some excellent racing fun. There are three events in those megabytes, including a Ford Mustang GT-R in San Francisco, a Nissan S15 Silvia in Yokohama Docks, and a BMW 320si touring car for the crashing into other cars on every bend. Officially quite a good demo.

GRID: Some Drifter Coming Through Town

So it turns out that GRID is just another MarioKart clone. Sigh!You can carpool with us any day, Gametrailers.Ho ho, only joking Codies. Drift is to driving games as double-jumping is to platform games: ESSENTIAL. They do seem to be taking it very seriously. I don't even care about driving games, and I find myself increasingly excited about getting to play this. And not just…
