The Grand Tour Game is an episodic racing game developed by Amazon Game Studios and published by Amazon Corporate LLC as a tie-in to the Amazon Prime show of the same name. Season 1 Episode 1 and Season 2 Episode 1 were released as part of the base game on January 15, 2019, with new episodes releasing on the same day as their televised counterparts to coincide with the release of the latter on Amazon Prime.

Why It Sucks

  1. Outdated graphics that are on par with earlier Forza and Asphalt games.
  2. You only get about 30 minutes worth of gameplay for every 60 minutes of show footage.
  3. You can only skip one scene at a time and not the entire sketch before the playable parts.
  4. The jump from live action to video game can sometimes be awkward at times.
  5. The new voiceovers added to the game can get annoying at times when you collide against the barriers, which consists mostly of "Oh my god" or variations of it.
  6. The show footage can sometimes stutter and have its framerate decrease during the transitions.
  7. Textures can sometimes pop in when you drive fast and the graphics look grainy.
  8. Despite using the same physics engine as rFactor, the cars sometimes have floaty and awkward handling when you drift them.
  9. The timing that you get when you do a lap around the Eboladrome does not appear on the time board in the show at all. (Justified as it is impossible to properly have the timing edited onto the board without ruining the show)
  10. The Jaguar XE SV Project 8, which is featured in Season 3 Episode 4, is completely off-model to its real-life likeness and looks more like a cartoonish RC car wrapped in bubble wrap.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. Some of the new voiceovers are funny.
  2. You can actually get to choose whether to race as Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, or James May in some of the races.
  3. The game has four-player split-screen multiplayer, so you can play the game alongside 3 of your friends!
  4. Lots of fun gadgets that can be used to deliberately slow down your opponents, like candy fog to obscure their vision, a molten ice cream tank that can leave slippery ice cream tracks to make cars slip and spam messaging to annoy the living daylight out of your opponents.
  5. If you're sadistic enough, you can deliberately recreate Richard Hammond's infamous Rimac Concept One crash in Season 2 Episode 1.
    • Heck, you'll even unlock an alternate scene because of that!
  6. The achievements are easy to unlock with easy-to-understand instructions.
  7. The transitions are seamless most of the time.
  8. This game marks the first time you can drive a production Rimac Concept One, Lamborghini Aventador LP 740-4 S, Hennessey Exorcist ZL1, Cadillac STS, NIO EP9, Fulu FL250ZK-7, Lancia Gamma Coupe, Fiat X1/9, Alpina B5 BiTurbo, Winnebago Chieftain, Ford F-550 National Tropical, Chevrolet Pace Arrow, Aston Martin DBS Superleggera 5.2 V12, Jake's Fabworks JF5U and a driveable luggage in a console game.
    • Heck, you can even race in an airport on a non-Nintendo console for the first time!

Reception

The Grand Tour Game got a mixed reception from critics, but overwhelmingly positive reception from the audience on Metacritic.

Gamereactor gave the game 5/10, praising its humour and inclusion of split-screen multiplayer while criticizing its lack of content and polish and the fact that it is too scripted. (Ironically, there is an episode in Season 2 that mocks the fact that the show is too scripted.)

Xbox Tavern also gave the game 5/10, praising its transition and diverse content while criticizing its lifeless backgrounds, short scenes, and poor handling.

My friend is a big time fan of anything related to the hosts The Grand Tour and Top Gear. Playing a game like this will really make him pissed.

A game where you can play as Jeremy Clarkson..Sadly the excitement is a lie.

Honestly wish there was a Top Gear game or just a game about the Stig in a GTA style spin-off.

I own this game, It was 20 dollars and I really didn't expect much from it, However driving game fans like me had to try it out and to an certain degree it does emulate what the show couldn't.
