  1. Just my opinion:

    - a new grid game is a good news.

    - the real grid game experience is long gone, lost somewhere in 2011 when grid1 was killed. After that the brand was tortured over and over without any compass or goal except for making money.

    - No pre-order, no day1. And as soon i see there is not spectator mode and text chat = shelf. 

    - There is only a company on the global-market who can do worse than Codemasters.... and here we are !! so lucky isn't it ? (LOL)

    - we people should stop asking for classics grid features... nobody at devs knows anymore that lost knowledge.

  2. Hope some big shot guy or someone who can reach people in high ranks at EA (managers, exe, etc) read here this thread.

    There is a win-win easy job for you

    Here the instructions:

    - Ask someone to start the remaster edition of the ******* Race Driver GRID ! Don't even bother to make a market analysis, I'll tell you, will be an HUGE success.

    Thank me later.

    they said it is a small team. HAHAHAHHA
    Did someone have a look how many people are listed on credits?

    i think is the core grid-team compared to f1 team and other cm department, cause on the credits there are a lot of people included the ones who make the coffee.

    PC3 costs more and PC2 has the same content so you paid twice for it. Dirt 5 is not out and is more expensive and you can use older assets from Dirt/Dirt rally.

    Grid 2 and Autosport are last-gen game, it was easier to build game assets before.

    I don't have a problem to say Grid was overpriced but I don't see any competition. Who can do it better and cheaper? I have around 40 hours in it already and still it's not boring at all so the price is OK from that perspective.

    Check day1 and preorder cost of grid2019 ultimate... $79.99 (LOL)

    Grid 2 and Autosport are more next gen than grid2019, except trees and instagram sunglare filter and blur of course.  

    Better and cheaper ? Any competition ? Buy grid1 for $5, is better and cheaper, specially for you since you never played it before.

    I know, I checked a lot of stuff about the game. The problem is it looks like fans wanted too much for the money. Everybody wants more cars, more tracks, more everything but it's not possible now. Why Grand turismo sport went out in that state? It's probably too hard to build a racing game today. It's not 2010.

    I could be wrong but it looks like it's not possible to build "complete" game for normal game price. Who knows. I saw a lot of ads in the game and it should be another source of the money?

    After all the game has everything for me. What other better choice I have? None. What about fans? Maybe they just wanted too much, I don't know but friend of mine played all Grids and he's very disappointed with the game. I am still not sure what is going on but I loved playing like no other racing game yet. Something there is just right.

    we never asked the perfection or a complete game... people asked to put inside into this so called GRID what was the usual GRID fun. People asked for demolition derby ? They made it into that stupid pointless skirmish waiting room. And many other examples, like AI cars inside multiplayer just to show up Alonso named car (at the price to ruin the whole online experience) and many other nonsense like that. (is a very long list).

    Is all about marketing nowdays, and don't talk about money, they are not a no-profit company ! There is always a better choice and it starts with leave game like that on the shelf.

    I am late to the party because I thought reviews and people are right. Bought it recently for the test and I love it. It's so good and I don't understand why it got so much bad reviews. OK, I got fixed version but current state is very good for me as a gamer. Many ppl say arcade racer but it's not, I love the physics there. I just completed all base races and continue with the seasons. So good game...

    The game had the potential to be a real 2019 version of the grid racedriver. Try read some of the long reviews on steam, there are a lot of people explaining the details.

    Can be a good racing game and enjoyable for some hours of fun in single player, and for few money (under 10eur). If this is the goal, i would rate it positively too.

    People who loved the brand and the first grid knows exactly what is missing. And people who bought on pre-order the limited uber edition for 80eur was simply scammed.

    1. A new person who hasn't heard much of the game yet, and has plenty of time to decide. They can be swayed either way.
    2. A person who likes the game and enjoys it, even in the face of criticism. They mostly remain silent and hide the fact that they enjoy this game.
    3. A person who hates the fact that people are still enjoying this game, and will be very toxic to anyone who disagrees. This is NOT a valid way to dislike the game.

    I am a person who thinks this game can be improved, and I am basically playing Devils Advocate. I understand why you are angry, but when you call the game dead when it STILL has people playing it, then you need to look yourself in the mirror and ask yourself "What have I done?"

    i call the game dead meanwhile 3 or 4 people are still playing it ?? ahahaha of course you are right, i should shut down their pc first !! LOL

    you cannot be serious, is that a new horizon of trolling or what ?? LOL :classic_biggrin:

    All we need is season four with new tracks that they, after all, only transplant from Autosport, just like most of the content.

    Also, they should add the promised split-screen because it's a game changer sell breaker option.

    Cool if they unlock possibility to run multiclass races because now the choice of cars in free race option is very limited - need "all cars" option in free race.

    Statistics section is for improvement. It doesn't remember the settings you are looking for. It doesn't visualize car groups or tracks and it's very clunky to use it. People love stats imho

    will you help us claim the split screen?




    You are still into the ''motivated and hopeful'' phase.

    As soon as you realize some few fact about this company you will join the ''screw all'' club.

    Good waiting for all that feature adding to the game... :classic_biggrin:

    minetti, you are a very aggressive fan boi

    good job, you deserve split scream

    ...meanwhile at cm headquarters

    CM community managers: '' why that minetti guy is continuously tagging us on the forum ?"

    dev team: '' uuhhm we think he asking for that split thing''

    CM community managers: ''what thing ?''

    dev team:'' dunno, he posted a video about banana something... must be a BANANA SPLIT !!''

    CM community managers: '' right doh !!''

  10. i see all the tag, not only in this topic. Is always the same.

    They don't answer, the ''selling days'' are over, there is no interest anymore. The maximum answer you can get, is ''yes, wee keep an eye on the forum guys, about adding new stuff not promises though'' or something like that, just circumstances political correct answer. Nothing for real.

    And i'm sure they will not ask the dev team to put again the hands on the game to add split screen feature...

    you have to go to the other side of the mirror and look at what you have achieved by building a demanding hate attitude.

    if the son you love will go his way despite a million life advice that he ignores, will you persuade people to hate him?
    or maybe you will support him and look for positives in his new way and decisions? you don't have to contradict yourself and always like it.
    just be honest but patient and understanding and try to be helpful, but most of all enjoy your life and don't waste time on toxic emotions

    I understand the disappointment, marketing is at fault because inflated the expectations using the iconic game title and everyone expected something similar.
    however, we got a new game that was some kind inspired by the icon. this game has a new, simpler formula and less content but a wonderfully designed driving model and many beautiful cars with unique characteristics and quite a lot of possibilities to adjust driving options hidden into a somewhat clunky menu.

    so we should be happy because in car games it does not happen so often 😉 that's why i loved this game

    Your is very good attitude, looks like a bit a Ned Flanders type... I mean, imagine walk into a bar and order a cup of coffee, instead you receive a cup of petroleum... let's keep our attitude good and say to barman ''thanks the same for the effort, is not a cup of coffee okay but is still black and instagram photo looks good''. ''Here my 2dollars...'''. 

    Now my curiosity is about project cars 3, i not know much info yet, looks good anyway, let's see if will turn to be a good racer.

    dudes, but no one is forcing you to buy these games and you can spend money where the products suit your tastes better.
    as the experts you can even form a dev studio and produce the games you dream about.

    in fact, these offensive texts that you throw in are in no way substantive criticism that should support the development of the titles you are fans of.
    on the contrary, they destroy sales and dev support because are in no way an honest reviews. maybe someone wants it, maybe even someone pays for it.

    I don't want to wonder why you care about hating so much, let everyone judge it for themselves. I do not want to think about it because every normal person, if he is not satisfied with the food, changes the restaurant. and if the favorite restaurant change the menu, just expresses his opinion about new dishes in a cultural way and continues or goes away wishing good luck. that's how I was taught

    I think the moderator should have some calming pills, if you feel the need



    I partially agree with you here. And if you read old message of last year, a lot of people asked for refund for that game. And is the same warning of the OP.

    The criticism exist because me and many of my friends (and other upset people) we are the most loyal to the company.

    And we are asking and making post of ideas and suggestion every-time a game is under development. And every-time we are completely ignored.

    Read how many thread i started since spring 2019 full of ideas and suggestions... 

    The company well deserve our hate. This is the time to lets say we wasted every cent for this game already dumped and forgot.

    it is beyond me how STUPID people can be, maybe age isn't what it was taught to me............NOW the rich just **** on the poor like no other time in history !


    Totally agree with you.

    The point is that CM is not making games anymore, is making marketing products with the shape of a game. And with this goal you can see how unplayable an AMAZING game like GRID1 has become in 2019 !! They ruined the original idea, the style, the damage model, the game mechanics, all the racers interaction are zero (no text chat). They put AI cars online just to show up the ******* ALONSO named car !!

    And after how many months to see the custom lobbies ?? And the list of idiotic mistakes into this game is so long, i cannot put everything to write a book.

    Is a game made just for advertisement, ALONSO, STADIA, LOGITECH, and so on... And what is funny ? Customers put money inside to buy CEO new car, and after less than a year the game is already dumped into the trash. And more funny than that are arse-licker peoples who keep tagging community managers without luck just to see some thanks in return. 

    Sad we never see again a grid1 lookalike, this brand is basically destroyed.

    Could you stop popping up with your hate in every possible place? no, you do not criticize, it's some kind of **** i think. all of us here together with the dev team and publishers, we respect that the game did not meet your tastes. it hit mine and I think there are more people satisfied with this title.

    Despite a few shortcomings (which game does not have them?) this is a car game with one of the best driving models 19/20. there is no better optimized model on asphalt surfaces and it works great on pad and steering wheel, poetic well balanced - big thanks team CM.

    I jumped away from reading hate on the forum and I play regularly because it gives me a lot of fun. I don't care if Autosport had slightly better textures or rounder shapes.

    Damage model? this one is pleasing to the eye, quite sufficient. making a Grid a simulator where I would be stopped or slow down by every damage 😕 this would kill the dynamics of these tight races. So I can understand why the damage model has been limited and it suits me, but I also understand the criticism where many people would like to be able to set these parameters in options.

    Despite the complaints about too little content, this race grid in the game menu is very pleasantly varied and the ladder pleasantly motivates you to clasp on it to unlock the next competition. yes, there is no extensive career here, but not everyone needs it. At first I didn't pay attention to the targets section, but now, when I come back for a moment, it amuses me in getting these cards and I must admit that it diversifies and extends the game.

    The game does not have an extensive garage, there are not many other extensive options that you will meet in other titles, but if I had to select a game that I would take with me on a business trip or vacation, it would be Grid because although there is no extensive and landscape-rich Forza, it gives much more fun to control the car

    If You want a roller coaster with a soap driving model but with huge open world, beautiful landscapes and hundreds of some kind similar cars, just buy yourself the Forza H game. If you want maximum simulation of racing on closed tracks then buy it Assetto Corsa Competizione. If you want a career with mileage scoring, training and licenses just buy Gran Turismo Sport. Grid is not like the other, never was and will not be like these games because it is a completely different idea and approach to the fun of racing in different groups.

    The community in the form of several users with different expectations gives this game the opinion of a bad unsuccessful and this is motivated by different expectations, nonsense. A normal person expresses his opinion culturally if something does not suit him. If you do not like the shoes, you express your opinion and buy other shoes, and you do not feed yourself by whipping the shoes, writing in each toilet how much you hate them.

    I really liked this game and am glad to see some more support for this Grid game, thanks CM team

    blabla blabla blabla

    i'm an old customer and part of the forum since 2009 (the yellow and black forum shutted-down on the night of 2011 by CM for too much shame, it was exploding of complaints the day this company killed grid1 online community).

    You can say you opinion, is not your right to ask other to stop say anything. so go gently to **** off

    Well there were a fair few community requests that made into the game, including an achievement tab, custom public lobbies, adjustable race lengths for career mode, cleaning your car and others. Not to mention all the things that were adjusted thanks to feedback! It's a bit unfair to say that the community was ignored because they didn't change those things that mattered for you 🙂 

    I don't know how many times it has to be said. Never pre-order anything if you don't know everything about what the game will offer and you're not absolutely 100% sure that you'll enjoy it. There is no reason to gamble and hope you'll like something, when you can just wait if you're unsure!

    Achievement tab (and stats player?), custom public lobbies and adjust race length are something should be already into the game. Cmon !! Is like forget to put the wheels on cars and after people ask you say: ''see? we listen''. 

    Meaningful features we asked, like text chat overlay, no ai cars online, spectator mode from lobby, demolition derby etc etc. nothing of that features was made after community request (all said in a development stage, months before release date). This features are not minor or secondary. Is what we ask since forever.

    Of-course agree with you about pre-orders. And anyway this recent way to build fast burn games, is not good. Grid brand is destroyed, and is clear that code-masters is not able anymore to build a game with a proper online mode. And what is sad, is that they are so fast to develop and update all platforms in a blink if any bs feaure (like trueforce) is good to make some advertising backfire.
