Kotaku UK's review of Grid Autosport: "A fast but ultimately frustrating racing game that improves on its predecessor in some areas, at the cost of ostracizing anyone but the most devoted of driving game fans."
Here's the first trailer for GRID Autosport, the next installment in Codemasters' racing series. You can read all about the game's features in the blog post accompanying the trailer (including how Autosport has not one, but two in-car camera views). Lands on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 on June 27.
We've reported about the $190,000 worth Mono Edition for Grid 2, where the added bonus was not just some fancy cosmetic DLC, but a high-performance car. And although the game came out in May, guess what, no one bought this super-special edition yet.
Codemasters' racing game Grid 2 has a fairly expensive special edition that you can pre-order. How much is it? £125,000, or $189,016. What do you get for that kind of money, you ask? Well, Grid 2, for one. Also, a PlayStation 3. And a car.
And now, courtesy of a recently released trailer, have a small glimpse of Grid 2's "Redefined" multiplayer gameplay. Codemasters' arcade racer is coming out on May 28, with Europe getting it three days later, on May 31.
The new teaser trailer for Grid 2 has got some seriously squealing tires and some seriously flaring lenses.
Codemasters is laying off 80 workers at its HQ, but says the job losses won't affect titles like F1 and GRID.
Codemasters has seen fit to develop a second Grid game. The first, released in 2008, was pretty damn great, as you'd expect given the fact many of the team from the respected TOCA series had worked on it.
Here's a novel concept: digital delivery store Direct2Drive is trialling an offer whereby PC gamers can download and rent a game.
MP Edward Vaizey last week introduced a motion recognizing (sigh, recognising) games recently honored (sigh, honoured) by BAFTA. He also used the motion to decry "the complete lack of support from Government" of the industry.
Codemasters are trundling out eight new cars for GRID fans today as they launch the GRID 8-Ball Pack for Xbox 360 and PS3 versions of the game.
I'm not a huge driving fan. I play them of course, but the only kind of driving games I can really get into are the off-roads ones. GRID looks OK, but nothing that seems to separate it from the pack. What about the racing fans out there, what do you think?
