GRID Review – Barebones But Fun

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.

FIA European Truck Racing Championship Review – Keep On Trucking

The human race can be a confusing species indeed. We merrily build powerful trucks designed to transport lots of cargo, and then for some reason decide to go racing with them, despite the fact that we also build incredible cars and bikes designed specifically to race. These trucks are so completely unsuitable for racing that their brakes literally attempt to self-destruct, and yet race them we do. Because humans are bloody stupid. We’re the same species that create energy drinks, slap on a warning that they shouldn’t be mixed with alcohol and then proceed to mix them with alkanol anyway. It’s a wonder we’ve actually made it this far. And that brings us to FIA European Truck Racing Championship, the officially licensed game of the real-life sport of racing things that shouldn’t be raced.
