E3 2014: GRID Autosport - Tight Racing Action and Hairpin Turns
We drive a few laps and learn a bit more about GRID Autosport.
The point of an analogue stick has been totally lost on the guy driving in this video.
Looks a little more arcadey than I was hoping for but I'll keep an eye on it nonetheless.
bring back the handling physics from the first game and put a lot more touring car mode and i will be happy. The 2nd game is easily the worst sequel i've ever played.
All Codemasters' games have the same arcadey physics. It looks nice but I always facepalm at their gameplay footage. Colin McRae 4 (2-4 were amazing)was their last great racing game, many years ago.
I love GRID, however I own Forza 5 on XB1. Where's my incentive to buy this game on last generation? I don't think I'll be getting this sadly.
Grid just keeps taking a step backwards. The first one was brilliant and was perfect with a steering wheel, the second one had the interior dashboard camera view removed and it was next to impossible to drive with a steering wheel (it really was made for gamepads only) and now this Autosport release doesn't look too appealing either.
the truth is, if you look closly, you see the car is turning around its middle, like its spining on a stick, while a car would have two Pivots its movments are based on while simulating it in games ... its basicly turning around its to axes, depending on how much force is applied through wich ... ofc, good games simulate the movment more based on the four tires the car is conected to the ground with
I mean, why is it that games literally going backwards in its evolution?
dirt.2 was already pefect in every aspect, why not building on up from there, why going back? (consoles!)
sorry for quality but this was 5 years ago, can you believe it, and its so superior to the games as of now !
@SPBoss In Grid 2 the dashboard camera can be re-enabled on the PC through the .ini file, it is very easy to do if you look up how. I forget what their reasoning was for taking it out but I think it had to do with console performance or / and lack of use. If Autosport only has grand prix like tracks I'm out.
@CTR360 um what? This is last gen only.
@wilhelmut oh dear. If you think GRID 2 is awesome, you should buy GRID 1. It's 100x better than GRID 2
@wookiegr it is GRID 1 and 2 in one single edition (both cars and tracks) with improved driving mechanics and realistic damage. Plus you get the cockpit view in this one.
@kingjugganott this isn't a direct video feed. It's a camera recording a TV. It usually doesn't look this bad.
It's not rotating around a single point, it only looks that way because of the camera's perspective.
Dirt 2 was garbage. Yeah, the physics and stuff might have been okay, but the actual racing events sucked and everything good was removed in favor of the X-Games bullshit.
@hitomo I don't think Grid was ever meant to be a simulation racer, more of an arcade style, but good eye for details.
@CharlesBurns Grid has always been an arcade-type racing game.
@CharlesBurns Yeah, that's my biggest concern with this game.
