Description

GRID for PC is a vehicle racing game, the fourth in the series, but a reboot rather than a follow-on. The game aims to harness everything popular and good about the first three games and present them in a new, slicker format using modern graphics and physics engines for even more realistic driving play.

About the Game


The game is said to fall somewhere between an arcade-style racing game and a hyper-realistic simulation game, and none other than Formula One legend Fernando Alonso has been brought along to weigh in with his opposition and enthusiasm for the sport in all its various forms and classes.

The game finds the sweet spot where it appeals to both casual players looking for a relatively easy to master challenge and serious sim drivers who want a realistic and fully immersive experience. It is not designed to fill either of these two markets, instead being aimed quite precisely between them.

Much of the game’s design and graphics has been based on, along with Alonso’s expert advice and preferences, feedback from players over the years since the very first game in the series came out. This game was actually called Racing Driver: Grid, so the reboot is actually the first with the name in its current, capitalised form.

Unlike other racing simulation games, you can incite road rage in AI vehicles who do not take kindly to having you bump into them: should you do it on purpose and more than once, they will react aggressively, braking in front of you, pushing you to the side of the road and generally making your life difficult. There are over four hundred AI drivers, so you have a lot of drivers to harass!

Should you successfully irritate an AI competitor you may – fairly soon – come to regret it! The AI is programmed to forget about the race, once targeted by a driver, and will then proceed to do everything in its power to revenge themselves upon you, from cutting you off, slowing you down, even shunting you off the road. Unless you feel like living dangerously, try not to annoy these drivers: they’re not the sort to laugh it off!

Classes of Race to Try


There are various types of racing style to try out, each on varying terrains from ovals and circuits to streets, complete with other road users and obstacles that might surprise you:

  • GT (Grand Tourer) – these powerful vehicles offer you a comfortable ride while serving up as many horses as you need. Bulky, powerful and fast, this vehicle makes for a exciting if solid ride

  • Tourer – these jerry-rigged race cars are often based on the family cars that they were originally made from, like teenagers souping up the family Mondeo to go from nought to seventy in a split second

  • Stock Car – originally the phrase meant any vehicle in its original state, unmodified and raced against other similar cars in that same unmodified state. These days, it refers to any vehicle that is produced with competitive racing in mind

  • Muscle Car – high performance, rear wheel drive, plenty of snarling horses (you know what I mean!) under the hood, muscle cars are everyone’s driving dream. Drop the transmission and leave burning rubber behind you as you put your dream car through its paces

  • Super-Mod – super modified cars blast around the tracks, scaring the pants off the oppositions (and probably the drivers too, sometimes!) See what tweaks you can use to rocket your souped-up baby around to the winning post

  • GRID for PC is available for purchase on Instant Gaming for a fraction of its retail price. You will receive an official key and be able to play the game in seconds. Play smart. Pay less.

    The game does not start at all.

    it shows an Error as the following:

    "Access violation at address 0x8c66ae4b in module 'D3D12Core.dll' + 0x6ae4b.

    D3D12Core.dll"

    I tried many different ways and after researching the internet, it turned out that this is a widespread issue and no one is responsible for my money

    I was so excited to play this and it didn´t even work to begin with, because of a common problem with the hardware settings, I guess. Might be easy to solve for some people, but not for me and it´s not my job as a player anyway.
    • Sounds good ...
    • Doesn´t work.
