Back in the dark days of 2007 Call of Duty: Modern Warfare launched and became one of the most important games in history, it’s great singleplayer and addictive multiplayer laying the foundations on which the shooter genre would build itself upon for years to come. Whether or not you think the industry’s fascination with Modern Warfare was a good thing or a bad thing is obviously up for debate, but the point was Modern Warfare was special.
What the hell is it with companies and their confusing naming systems? We kicked off back in 2008 with Racer Driver: Grid, then the Race Driver part was cut out for GRID 2, then came GRID: Autosport and now finally after a six-year hiatus we have GRID. Just GRID, all capitals like someone is yelling it you. Confusingly this is also technically the 10th game in the long-running TOCA franchise. On top of that, GRID (2019) is a reboot for the GRID series, not that you can really tell. Yeesh. But weird naming conventions aside, it’s good to series the GRID series back again and I’m delighted to say that this latest entry is a solid racing game, albeit with a few key issues.
