I finally picked the game up today in the PSN sale for £22,it was the ultimate edition.
I have had a weird relationship with this game as I had it pre-ordered from all the way back when it was announced but cancelled it just a day before release after seeing footage of base consoles and feeling there may be some serious issues with the game.
Since then I had kind of forgotten about it other than checking out these forums once or twice to see what progress was being made with it.
Anyway,I've been pretty bored with how life is at the moment and haven't had much to play.I was looking through the current PSN sale and spotted Grid,the sale ended tonight at midnight....so I did a quick search at what the dlc content had been and saw it was all now released.
I don't usually impulse buy,but given the sale was ending very soon I figured £22 for the complete version would keep me entertained for a good while.
I've played a few events now and the blurry visuals I saw at launch seem to have been fixed(I'm on a base PS4),there are lots of events now and I'll only be playing single player so that's great for me.
I'm playing on hard with all assists turned off and it's a good challenge for me personally,so that's also good news.
I know the game has disappointed many,and for good reason with the lack of content and dodgy visuals when compared to previous Grid games.....and I played Driveclub for three months solid so I know what a beautiful game looks like.....but I have to say my first impression has been a positive one and I think I'm gonna have a lot of fun with this game.
At £70 back when I had the ultimate edition pre-ordered.....maybe not,but at £22 with all the content and patches(loving being able to set race distances),I think this is a pretty good investment.
