Grid offers exhilarating racing and unmatched atmosphere but the modest track list means things get old faster than they should.

  • Thrilling racing you don't get anywhere else
  • Brilliant, informed car selection
  • Nemesis system is genuinely meaningful
  • Pitch perfect arcade handling
  • Not enough circuits to sustain the career mode
4 / 5
Version tested
Xbox One X
