Edit: – A few people have mentioned stutters in the video so I just want to clarify – those aren't the game and weren't in my rendered video. As mentioned in the review, things run at a pretty consistent 30 so I don't know what has caused the stutters I'm afraid – possibly the compression and upload to YouTube? Just wanted to clarify. Thanks. Glen

What is your favourite racing game on Switch (of any kind – doesn't have to be a rally game). I think mine is still Horizon Chase Turbo. I absolutely love that game. Glen

Why on earth hasn't a 3rd party company developed a Swicth controller with analogue shoulder buttons already?

I can't wait to revisit games like this to see what the eventual switch pro does to it.

Between this game and Apex, I've seen two games already this week that could really benefit even from just 10-20% more power.

The developer clearly did a good job, but the pop in would annoy me.

Can we get some of the new NFS games? Or underground series on switch!! New self titled or heat would be good

Cartridge edition is not being released until the end of March, or April 8th. Could just purchase the deluxe version, which comes with some extra DLC, from the eShop instead. Although I prefer to have cartridge edition of most of my Switch games, in order to save space on the microsd card.

I've played both games, this is a big improvement over the first. I've put in a couple of hours so far and really see myself putting some real hours into it.
And there's a 20% discount on it!

I am quiet surprised how well this plays on the Switch. The controls are a little twitchy but what can you do?

(This video is quite good if anyone wants to compare them side by side! It complements your review perfectly 😊)

I play grid, with no assistances and manual gears. It cost me 3.50$cad.
Wish I had a steering wheel though.

After wrc 8 and the half arsed port with options that didn't work on switch, steering set to lowest sensitivity by default to try and make playable and my go the horrible handling etc , I hope they have actually dedicated some time to this port

I want to know if this game have visual damage on veichles. All rally games on Switch don't have a visual damage on the cars.

They need to do something about shadow pop in and the textures of trees in the distance. I have shadows pop up literally underneath the car and some of the trees in the distance look like green static. Quite distracting.

Man I really don't like that pop in/out issue. I have GOOD eyesight and that right there seems very distracting.

Edit: to elaborate I like 2D-shmups and fast twitch arcade games… If I see something suddenly pop up, even if it's static background, I will likely react to it out of habit. Is it a big issue or do you get used to it? Is it only "fake" trees or do objects you're actually able to hit also pop in and out?

Sounds like a legit racing game. You were listing all the modes and what career entailed and I went 'whoa'

Not much of a racer, myself. Usually just the occasional split screen local race for me

The graphics look absolutely atrocious!!! Almost like this is a port from the PS2 era. There are far better Rally games for Switch such as the years ago V-Rally and even older Rush Rally in particular. Both at a fraction of the cost and the latter continuously being updated.

I’d buy the game simply for the fact that the featured car this year is awfully similar to the Yaris 2020 I drive
All in all, game looks great
