In our review for GRID Legends, Stefan wrote: “GRID Legends builds on the foundations of the 2019 reboot, improving the driving experience in certain areas, adding a big new story mode, and throwing more variables and variety into the mix. There’s enjoyable, pulpy action racing to be had here, but some of the fundamental weaknesses from the last game remain, and as the racing game community increasingly looks toward sim racing, it feels like this franchise is in need of another reinvention.”

From the heady days of the Mega Drive up until the modern day gaming has been my main hobby. I'll give almost any game a go.

    I can’t say I’ve noticed the driver gripping his gearstick too hard!
