In Autoblog review of the game, we called it “a true contender for the best of the series” thanks to its top-notch graphics, a healthy and balanced car roster, and a deluge of in-game things to do.

Depending on what system you’re playing on, you can buy this one for around $35 to $50 right now.
“GRID Legends” is another great “all-purpose” racing game and this one isn’t exclusive to one console or the other. This one is decidedly more on the ‘arcade’ side than the ‘sim’ side, but we think that’s good for him. It has an engaging and fun single-player story mode as well as cross-play capability for multiplayer, so whether you’re a solo racer or like to tear up the track with friends, this one will be a solid choice. Depending on the console you’ll be playing on, you could save up to 75%, which is a bargain for such a fun game.

If you own a Switch and have been avoiding this one, now is the perfect time to pick it up at a discount.
