  1. More stages is a given.. if not, then:
  2. After playing Dirt Rally 2 and now seeing the new Grid game, I can't help but think there's a bit of an over-exposure fetish going on here with the road surfaces. For me, it doesn't help the look of your titles at all. I'd rather see the roads I'm driving on, instead of being blinded by reflective light. If it's there just to be a distraction, I guess it's doing the job. Otherwise, it's a very odd art direction to take, when previously, you were making some of the best looking driving games around.

    Do you want the FFB fixed?

    Tbh, I've just grown accustomed to it, it's just odd feeling very little when you're on the really rough and bumpy stuff at times. The fact that Tyre Slip and Engine FFB options are deliberately locked out from tuning does say something about this issue though.

    Darkness and rain all the time

    I appreciate the fact that every location has rain now, but afternoon stages with rain are straight up missing in some locations it seems. Can't even do time trials in the wet without it being either dusk or dawn, so I hope this is something they consider patching in later at least.
  5. After grinding through the first difficulty in career mode, trying to get to clubman asap so I can buy and use the Metro, I then find out that it's not available for purchase. The funniest thing about this was that it was literally the ONLY car that was unavailable at time. I reeeeally hope this is patched out asap because I don't see how this is a compelling idea to begin with. Having to halt progress like this adds nothing! D: Please consider fixing this! There is a good reason why no other game I can think of has this system. 😄 PS it would be nice to allow the Datsun, Golf mkii and DS21 to be usable in career too. (again, not sure why these cars are locked out completely as well) EDIT - Just found another reason why this concept is an awful idea. Guess I won't be doing the daily today then, yee!

    Dirt Rally 2.0 is wonderful. Stop complaining!

    How dare others have different opinions! Jk Me personally, the game has potential but some negative responses are justifiable. Primarily towards the stuttering, RX AI, FFB issues and the "hardcore" damage being just non-existent. For me, this doesn't feel as polished as Dirt 4. The AI is terrible on some RX tracks, the Cartcross AI is kinda broken because they drive off track a lot. The fact the livery editor is gone too is surprising to see, so we're basically a nobody again playing as a hired driver through Career mode with a name and number. Plus I had problems unlocking my deluxe edition, so I had that refunded as well. That hasn't helped in me liking this title more.

    What is the next GRID-Game you want?

    Imo, "GRID Touring Cars" should be their next project, with the same kind of classifications and difficulty Dirt Rally has. But a sequel to TRD3 would be alright too, with better handling obviously. That game was huge!

    AI speed in racenet challenges

    The handling, cars and tracks are all fine, career mode could've been better if we weren't playing as a rented driver. That review is a bit harsh. I don't think this game is worse than Grid 2, however it's glitches and bizarre AI have killed my experience with this game, so I struggle to recommend it to people.

    AI speed in racenet challenges

    Not only is their speed annoying, but adding AI makes leader board times biased, not everyone will have the help of slipstreaming during their fastest lap. (Which in G:AS is super effective), I managed to place very high one time thanks to slipstreaming someone on a straight. No hopes of a patch to get rid of the AI, but here's hoping the next game won't have them. Just keep it like Grid 2 where's it's purely time/score based.

    What is your favorite Discipline in GRID AUTOSPORT?

    Touring for me, just because the car selection seems to be better. Not everything just being one car per class. Open Wheel is second, Street being third.

    Most difficult Grid of the series

    G:AS is the most difficult as far as the Single Player goes, but for the wrong reasons. *cough* Dirty AI *cough* last lap rubber banding *cough* Btw, I played with max. difficulty settings. (Except without forced cockpit)

    Codemasters blame xbox live

    It's ridiculous now. All I want to do is reach lvl 250 and then call it a day for online, but with all these freezes (which results in me going off to play Wreckfest instead because I get so pissed off), that's not going to happen. Lobbies aren't as busy since the latest patch came out either. ...I use the term "patch" loosely here.

    Grid/Codemaster's killer

    I don't think it's fair to compare Grid to P-Cars, as it's current gen. When (or if) Grid gets a current gen release, then the battle can begin.

    G:AS not working properly... once again

    If they're moving over from Forza 4, then they should be used to freezes if they play online, heh. Every time I go online there, my session usually finishes with a crashed lobby. Here's hopinh CM don't give up as easily as Turn10 does with their glitches...

    G:AS not working properly... once again

    The game seems to work fine offline. At least one half is functioning well, heh.
