Ratings and Reviews
A great port for AS Macs
I'm an old fart so I've been a fan of CodeMaster's racing games since TOCA. You'll know what to exepct if you have any past experiance with their GRID series.
Some people may whine about the single player-only aspect of the game, but as a casual player it's not an issue. At this moment it's probably the best Mac racing game today that sits in the "fun zone" between arcade racer and racing sim. Production values are high- which is what you'd expect for from a major developer like EA/CodeMasters.
If you have any competency in racing sims you'll probably find the stock difficulty level very tame. But it's a lot of fun, especially for $40. Especially when you consider the dismal amount of other competent racing games for AS Macs. (Most of the other ones I've tried are all arcade racers.)
I run it on a Mac Mini M1. For this machine the frame rate is acceptable as long as you don't try anything beyond 2560x1440... (I personally stay at 1920x1080).
Go With Gear Club Stradale Instead
I was so excited to try such a prolific title as Grid, and finally on Mac! Unfortunately, I was disappointed. Running on an M1 Mac with 8 GPU and 8 CPU cores, it is chunky and the graphics in general look like a ten year old iPad or iPhone game with no depth to them... Like so bad, it makes me dizzy! Maybe an M2/M3 Pro or Ultra would look better, but I don't think it would give the graphics any more depth, it would just make them higher resolution and smoother. For better graphics on Macs, I would go with Gear Club Stradale on Apple Arcade instead. It runs smoothly, has better graphical depth, and is a much better gaming experience all around. Also, I am a long time Forza fan so I can't help comparing Grid to Forza. Yes, I know Grid is half the price of Forza, but to me, the extra price of Forza is well worth it if you have access to a PC or XBox. So in conclusion, maybe if you have M2/M3 Mac it would be a solid experience, but if not, I would skip this one or go with the $4.99 per month Apple Arcade option of Gear Club Stradale.
Developers pay attention to these issues
But there are three main problems with the mac version
1.CPU scheduling has a big problem, it is not suitable for the MacBook Air without heat dissipation, the frequency of the performance core is too high, and not every core is balanced load, and the energy efficiency core is basically not utilized, resulting in the CPU core power consumption is about three times that of other 3a games.
2.MacBook Air13.6 "full screen display has a problem, no matter how to change the resolution and proportion, the left and right sides have been black edge, completely unable to cover.
3. The Chinese font is seriously deficient, so it is much better to change to English.
Hope the manufacturer can solve these problems.
