Codemasters offering refunds for Colin McRae Rally on Steam

Colin McRae Rally popped up on Steam last week and if you had only glanced at the trailer or about-the-game blurb, you might've thought it was an HD re-release of the PlayStation and PC title Colin McRae Rally 2.0. It's not. ...

Hot on the heels of last year's GRID 2, Codemasters is coming back with GRID Autosport, a "celebration of pure, unadulterated motorsport." This is going to be less of an arcade racer than GRID 2 ended up being, but without drifting too far into stodgy simulation either.

We'll see if the middle ground pleases anyone on June 24. It did please me, though, despite the insurmountable damage I did to all of the cars. I am a much better driver in real life.

Review: F1 2013
by Dale North

Look, you're never going to get to drive a Formula 1 car, so you should be grateful that these simulations exist. And if you (virtually) drive like I do, you should be glad that you'll never drive a F1 car -- we'd all be dead.

I suppose there are good F1 players out there, though. The best of them will tell you it's all about patience, understanding, preparation, and control -- all things I think I understand a bit more after spending some time with F1 2013.

Review: Grid 2 photo
Review: Grid 2
by Casey Baker

Codemasters' original Race Driver: Grid was -- and still is -- a pinnacle of automobile racing games. Back when it was released in 2008, I spent literally hundreds of hours with the game trying to rack up cars, medals, sponsors, and good teammates.

From its excellent utilization of a very real cockpit view to the smart implementation of teammates that you could choose to hire or fire, the game took on sim racing with a slightly more arcade approach. Races were fantastic and exciting, but you needed some real skill to truly progress through the game's lengthy main campaign.

Fast forward to present day, and Codemasters has finally heard the clamor of fans like myself and responded with a sequel to its shining star.

Unfortunately, the cries for a true champion seem to have gotten loss in the noise for a quick and dirty 'sequel' that barely gives a nod to its predecessor.

Five long years have passed since the original Race Driver: GRID offered racing fans an excellent hybrid racer with edge-of-your seat thrills in a great variety of racing styles. While the DiRT series has branched out a bit in GRID's absence, it has never really fulfilled the great scope of the robust experience since its primary focus has always been on rally racing and showy tricks rather than a great variety of races with aggressive A.I. opponents.

GRID 2 is finally on its way. In a hands-on preview of a few races with Codemaster's Senior Executive Producer Clive Moody, I had a chance to see just what has evolved for the sequel -- and what has fallen by the wayside.
