    Graphically, it doesn't really look that great. The Ego Engine is now 12 years (or more) old, and it's really showing its age.

    Perhaps it's just me, but the larger the environment, the less impressive the graphics nowadays...this looks no better than CS:GO in terms of detail, lighting, atmospherics and certainly looks no better than what the competition is doing on other racing games. I think some of the launch titles for PS4 racing games look more impressive than this.

    Meh. Maybe my bias is because I hate what they did to Grid2, but I've talked about that before :)

    Personally not sure why here is so much hate towards Grid 2.

    I've poured hundreds of hours into each Grid game and thoroughly enjoyed them all.

    Looking forward to this one :)

    I think there is a reason why we dont get to see the damage models, its probably because its the same as Grid2. Grid 1 looked much more spectacular!

    Graphics is nice. But I am not paying for racing game where collision system for car to car & car to environment feels like it was made in around year 2002.

    I wouldn't say I hate it, just that the control system made you have to constantly correct the angle of the vehicle - it clearly was not designed for controllers and instead the 0.0000000000000000001% of people like this:

    Additionally, they released the game at a time when the entire planet was still reeling from the financial crisis...not that it affected my industry in the slightest, but still, I was watching the news like a hawk back then, and seeing a company release a game that pretty much required massive investment to simply control the players avatar was horrid and left a very bitter taste in my mouth.

    If anyone is of any doubt (which on these forums I think is impossible, given the intellect here) it a case of being able to move a controller with your thumb 1/100th of a millimetre versus a big (or small) steering wheel 4/5ths of an inch.

    There are problems I had, but I think I covered it last time.

    At least with this game you know you are going to get a fun racer, with excellent frame rates, probably decent modding support (texture packs) thanks to a well known older engine, forcing 4K using DLSS or insane AA will make it pop, great controller/wheel support at launch. Not to mention the devs have said this game is based more from the original GRID than the other sequels which is a bonus.

    The same can be said for CSGO, sure its engine is ancient now but it performs insane on a toaster PC, has tons of players thanks to how easy it is to run, great modding community, excellent and alive competitive scene too.

    Honestly, I am not a massive racing game fan but if they do this right they could incorporate some third party app like faceit for CSGO for a great competitive scene and be one of the first racing games to really take off as an esport.

    Well, that's kinda the problem isn't it? We all thought Grid2 was going to be beyond amazing, and I even pre-ordered it (see prior forum thread for photos of the box I had delivered on launch day). It was not a good game, and certainly not a fun racer like its digital forebearer.

    The controller is really the problem, as they most did design the game using the sterring wheel and it made the controller/stick nearly impossible to play, as previously mentioned. As for what the devs are saying, I really cannot allow them to deposit funds into my bank of believability - their credit is just not good enough.

    Thankfully, I can play the game on steam for <2 hours and see if it sucks or not, then get my $ back - and if it does suck, I'm sure it will be in two key areas:

    • Control system via a game controller/stick (I use xbox 360/one/elite controllers).
    • No 'drift' mode just like the original Grid, or, a poor implementation therein.

    You trying to say the original GRID had bad drifitng?? I could drift for days on that game using a controller, or do you mean the sequel?

    Also what did you think of Autosport? I hated it personally.

    No. Grid2 had bad drifting and no, I didn't play autosport, burnt bridges etc

    I tried Grid Autosport, just couldn't get into it... no where near as good as the original.

    I actually forgot they even made it. That is how impactful it was :)

    I'm no artist so maybe I don't know where to look, but... what exactly about this is so graphically sub-par? Looks pretty good to me, regardless of the age of the engine.

    They're the same people that also complain that games are all about the graphics these days and all have very little depth or game play.

    Not everything that gets released has to try and replicate precisely all the visual fidelity of the known universe on my computer screen!

    I agree, yet this is 2019 and we have higher standards than this

    But seriously: what is so bad about this? Like is there a specific timestamp you can point out that looks distinctly bad? Because I just don't see what it is about this game that looks so dated. Granted, I am on an office PC with a pretty crappy monitor, so, perhaps there are some nasty textures that I just can't see (not to mention, Youtube's heavy compression).
