Career Mode Single Player

Hi guys,

When I saw the first time a news about a new GRID game I was really excited and my first thought was remembering Race Driver:Grid (and not Grid 2 or Autosport).

I told to myself: I need to have that game at day one, so I bought a key istantly (my platform is PC).

Now, 2 days after the game cames out I need to write this because I'm a little disappointed about the Career mode...

I'm an italian 30-years-old (near) boy and I play with Codemasters games since the time of Colin McRae Rally and Toca 2 back in the late '90; about racing game Codemasters was the best in that time and play their games was fantastic for a child that loves cars...

Anyway, back in 2008 Codemasters cames out with Race Driver:Grid, an awesome and amazing racing game, the best in that times that a PC player could play.

For me this game had the best Campaign/Single Player mode/Career mode that a racing game that a player like me wants in a Racing game: 
- Start as a driver that obtain money racing with other teams;
- Earning money until you can get your own team with the best choice of liveries, sponsorships, cars for the categories... only for reach the top as a driver and has a team!

- Until your team continue to grows up you could assume a teammate and continue to choose sponsors for the high amount of money (or aesthetic maybe) that you can earn by winning a race, make a 1-2 and so on...

- Continue racing with head-to-head race to Ravenwest... 

What a lovely game, really... nowadays a game like this is what I've expected when Codemasters announced a new GRID, forgetting the bad (imho) Grid 2 and Grid Autosport games.

Unfortunately, it's not like this... The career mode is a "flat" mode where you can choose the events only for earning money to buy new cars for compete in other events, without the possibility to choose sponsor and the greatest things that you could do in a 2008 game made by the same developer... a backward footstep...

I repeat, in my honest opinion, Race Driver:GRID HAS THE BEST CAREER MODE OF EVERY MOTORSPORT GAME ever launched til today.

I think that a remastered of the original GRID (with new graphics, new cars and new tracks) will be better than GRID 2019... But I know that, unfortunately, is impossible because of the licenses... 


The only improvements I make on the career mod of Grid is something like this:

- You start back in the 2008 (or another past year) as a simple talented driver that has to race with other teams to earning money for buying an own garage to fix the old racing car of your father (something like a film, but it isn't necessary of course) and then create your own team to compete in old stock cars (maybe) races choosing the sponsors for earning more money and livery as you wish;
- The last race of season is again the "24H of Le Mans" (a 15 minute race or something like with day-night timing) like Race:Driver Grid;

- As the years pass by you unlock new cars (for example: back in 2008 there wasn't a Nissan 370z or the Subaru BRZ, or the new Ford GT, the new Porsche 911, the Ferrari 488, prototypes and so on...) that you can buy for your team to compete in other events...
- Your team continue to grows up until you can assume a teammate, buying a professional garage, new sponsors...
- A rival team (like Ravenwest) invites you to haed-to-head races to win update for your "old" cars or their own "new" cars and a lot of money...
- Continue to race until you reach the top as a driver and as a team and when you finishes with gold medal all the events of the career.

That's my Motorsport Career Mode dream... I know that requires a lot of time and resources, but if you remember the 2008 game... it's not so impossible...

Do not get me wrong, mine is just constructive criticism, take it only for what it is, just an advice.

 

PS: Sorry for my bad English and for the long explanation.
