    To be honest the fact that it's less realistic than Grid Autosport means it's not for me. I enjoy the simcades like Grid Autosport, Driveclub, F1, PGR 4, etc. but wasn't a fan of Forza Motorsport series, Grid 1 or 2. They were too unrealistic in my opinion. It was like relearning how to drive and I'm just not a fan of that. Also, Grid 1 and 2 were unrealistically sped up. Cars were WAAAY faster than their real life counterpart and that's just not acceptable in my opinion. Although the same could be said about Driveclub, the car models performance wasn't super accurate but it wasn't as exaggerated as Grid's.

    Luckily Grid Autosport is absolutely BRILLIANT on Nintendo Switch. Racing game of the year, easily.

    I fully expect the Mustang Super Tourer to appear down the line considering they "made up" the Camaro ST to fit in with the Commodore & Falcon. When they do that, I'll be happy(er).

    Did you get to play it yet? I'm on the fence still. If it's slightly better than FH4's physics/driving feel I'll probably go for it.

    Looks like Codemasters have knocked it out the park with this and completely nailed the balance between arcade and SIM. Comparisons to the mighty Ridge Racer have even been made. Day 1 for me guys. This is the arcade racer we've been waiting for and a great alternative to all the serious sims that we have. The guy who reviewed this knows his stuff.
