Creators GRID Autosport finally hit upon the very middle, which allows fans avtosimov enjoy driving, but the forces acting dirty, aggressive, not just to get around the opponent, but beat his wheelbarrow in the trash.
Career GRID Autosport consists of five unequal regimes. Some of them played great. The hard goodbye famous cities with streets (Street), greet professional track (Touring) and dive into Formula 3 Championship with its powerful fireballs (Open Wheel). However, to go to the end of a career, you need to equally focus on the two remaining modes – Endurance and Tuner.
Endurance races (Endurance) have nothing to do with its definition. The only thing that is being tested – it’s your nerves. Arrive take a few minutes, and during that time a tiny tire erased to zero.Accordingly, the driving characteristics of the car initially transformed into something beautiful, which is associated with an iron on the ice. Stopping distance is increased, the slightest skid turns into a disaster, and unpretentious computer intelligence sweeps past. To him it is not necessary every second to get used to the changing physics. Funny, but if the other modes ‘normal’ opponent is not a big problem, the Endurance even “light” becomes elusive Joe.
Tuner mode also does not bring joy. It is designed for fans and lovers drift wind circles at that time in almost splendid isolation. Other pilots trailing behind at a considerable distance and try not to interfere. Drift is easy to control, screeching tires and interesting clouds of smoke. For a sense of presence is not enough just smell the burnt rubber. As an additional, optional test drift would go on “Cheers.” But to put it as the main discipline, without which no career to go? Seriously?
If you pass all modes evenly, running from one to the other, then this approach could still be considered justified. But if you only deal with those subjects that I enjoy, it is still necessary to come back to the remaining to them, tormented, but pass. Sorry, you can not shove a chore work on the shoulders of artificial intelligence.
On the track is almost always present so-called partner in your team, which hypothetically obliged to help. But in fact from him more harm. This artificial idiot and tries to prune back or kick to clear the track. Enemy racers so many problems do not deliver.
The rest of the game is good, especially the physical model. She forgives a lot, makes at the speed limit, but the forces driving the car very carefully so as not to fall into one of those spectacular crashes that can be seen on television broadcasts during the championships. In drift machine may fall head over heels and rolled, throwing metal and sparks in all directions.
Strong impacts not only lead to bruising body. Spoiled suspension, engine, wheel stands at random, the wheels begin to look in different directions. If speed drive in fencing, the result can be fatal – with complete destruction of the vehicle and failure contest. Fortunately, rewind time remained to correct bad moments. But if you feel confident enough, it is better to disable assistants. The smaller concessions, the more give the experience from arrival. The first does not necessarily come. Sponsor completely satisfied with something-something-something eighth place.
Sponsor not only gives your company colors and logos, it provides car. Set varies depending on the championship and does not depend on the player. This decision will be lovers in arms collecting cars, tune them and paint. Here hands can not touch anything. The only indicator of your progress – columns to gain experience in each mode. The greater the level, the more open championships.
For what it is worth buying GRID Autosport, so for the sake regimes Street, Touring and Open Wheels. This game is designed to drive the narrow dirty streets and suburban routes in a dense crowd, with clashes and attacks, reversals and rolling in sparks. Despite the fact that the enemy is better not touch (action force is the force of counteraction, as you know), we have to work roughly, to fight their way, shove one’s way through, losing wings and doors.
This game gives a great feeling of speed, but not at the expense of cheap weakling effects, but due to feedback, work suspension during acceleration and braking, the gradual loss of stability at a set rate. Machines behave exactly as expected of them. This is not the arcades of irons, this is, cars that have mass and structural features. If you went off the track, but this is not to blame “chudesatee” physics (as it was in GRID 2) and own krivorukost.
In control of the car always particularly pleased implementation drift. But we can not relax, otherwise inertia and friction force do their dirty work, and a masterpiece of automotive fly headlong into a barrier. On disaster watch with delight. Accidents are shown with the desired angle, effectively. At first, you can not deny myself the pleasure, especially bump into everything, to look at the sad result.
Developers would be on this engine your Burnout do eh …
The authors listened to the criticism that accompanied the output GRID 2, and implemented in the third part of the view from the cockpit. About its realized Polypholy Digital studio for older car models in Gran Turismo 5-6. Camera simply placed inside poorly detailed (if not empty) cabin and not to shock people, all this mess slipped to a state indistinguishable, muddy spots. The camera is terrible.She is not reporting what he sees the man behind the wheel. Feel like a tank. It is a pity that there is no next gunner, in a sense, the navigator, to warn the turns. The mini-map is too large, it is difficult to navigate.
The graphics on the PC is very nice. Particularly pleased plausible lighting and volumetric dust detail levels and change the time of day on the slopes (depending on the selected mode). For PC authors released a free add-on 5GB, containing high-resolution textures. Picture thanks to him became more pleasant (seemingly without specific comparisons difficult to notice the difference), but the details of machines, alas, is not affected.
But all of the above – only half the game. The second component GRID Autosport many risks becoming an object of adoration, passion and substitute real life. The second component – is multiplayer, which then, surprisingly, is arranged according to different laws than a career in the single player campaign.
Then – all of a sudden! – You can make your car collection, and to improve their color, to sell and buy new ones. Set is small, there is no hundred titles of Gran Turismo and Forza Motorport, but the major brands and models are presented.
Before the race can be – a miracle! – Choose a car from the list proposed. They are all about equal in power, so that the tense goes from the beginning to the end of the race. And here aggression finds out! Cultural behave only those who get ahead. Shove remaining until the end, until one is left on the sidelines.
As a career, multiplayer has its counterpart to rewind time. Only instead machine was damaged, restored and transferred back a bit on the road. The amount of such refunds limited use will not work forever, but it allows you to endure to the end of arrival without tires punctured and killed the engine, hoping for someone else’s mistake, to get ahead. Lagging behind the rider will not be allowed to vandalize and obstructing others. If you stand across the road, the rest just fly by like ghosts.
GRID Autosport consists of two components, each of which is attractive in its own way. Multiplayer here is one of the best racing games. His organization, a variety of modes and rules allow enjoying every arrival. Bonus is a compilation collection of cars and care about them. Yes, emergency cars should be restored for the earned money. Tuning is also not free.
In a career have to travel only on the fact that the sponsor offers. Have to take part in unpleasant conditions. But the reward for these sacrifices are other modes of gambling and dynamic. For graphics, sounds, musical accompaniment at all no complaints. Implementation of accidents admires.Even pity that the authors do not think any one mode to format Destruction Derby.
