A story based but casual racing game.
So we get a sports title, this time it’s racing, and Grid Legends does something that not maybe racing titles do, it puts a full story into the game about the player joining a weak racing team and making them into a major force. The story has live actors and is well done. There’s a villain for some reason, but it’s mostly about building up your team.
The downside is there’s no challenge in the racing. The story talks about you just beating other teams or races, and the objective is to beat a specific car, however, I took first place in every single race on the first attempt but one. The driving model here isn’t that realistic, but the challenge is almost non-existent, to the point players will likely do well even on the hardest difficulty.
Pick this up if you want an easy racing game. This is perfect for children or inexperienced gamers, but anyone who is somewhat accomplished will find no challenge here. I’m looking forward to Forza, and Horizon 5 was great. Though compared to some of the ultra-hard racing games like MotoGP22, I prefer this, but neither is my favorite.
