    Good Game, but something is missing

    First my E-nglish is not the Best, but i do my best.

    The Game is not bad, Cars, Weather, Tracks and the Races very good.

    But i miss a Story. I dont mean another illeagel driver you wants to Save the World. no, please not. But why can i not build a own Team. As Exampel, in the First Season, i earn Money, so that i can buy in the Second Season my First own Car, to build an own Team. If i want a Teammade, i have to buy a Second car for him and can choose between diffrent Ai-Drivers. If i want to drive in a higher Class, i have to buy a Car for that Class too. For my old Cars in the lower Classes, i can get a second AI-Driver. the Drivers cost money, but the Team earns Money over the Races. So i can build over many Season a big Team which has Cars in every Raceclass.

    As i said i love the Races, but a good motivation is missing. Now the Game is out and its too late for that. I can only talk for me and for other Players, but if ther was a DLC with a good career mode, i will buy it.

    Ok, thats all what i want to say right now. Sorry again for my Bad english.

    your English is easy enough to understand and i agree with your post, the thing i most loved about GRID is being able to create your own team, i would love the chance to compete to become the best team in the game but its still a great game

    Racing drivers do not own their cars. They do, however, fight and scrap for sponsorship to drive in new series. I do wish this was explored a bit more.

    As for team building, I don't think that should be the centre of the game - it is a sim driving game, not a team building one. However, I would have enjoyed an option to add a team-based element (buy cars, running costs, licensing for races, other costs etc) once you've completed the zero-to-hero. Allowing you to choose where you'd like to open your team (which series) whether or not to expand to certain series, who the drivers are and in which series you'll be racing for your team (if you have a FA, FB and F Rookie teams you cant race for all of them). I never expected this though.

    yes i agree, Racedirvers dont own there Team, but they have a Goal, to earn much money. This Goal is missing in a Game. Second i dont want to drive in all Classes. if a new Seasons Starts i take a class and have to stay there in that Seasons, all other cars can be driven by AI-Drivers.

    Why can't it be a Sim and a Team building racer? Why are limitations put on games like this at all. I don't think fleshing out the team side of it would have been much more of an effort.

    And I think that you're way too optimistic about that Especially when taking about an indie developer with limited money and manpowe.

    Well for one you have to finish the game at some point with the resources you have available. And if you keep adding new elements like the whole a team managing part (which takes a lot of time to develop) the game won't ever be finished.

    Yeah that would take a lot of work and not necessary for a sim.

    one of the big selling points of pCars is the sandbox style career mode, I hear Forza and GRID cater nicely for that type of gameplay!

    You pick a track and learn it and drive it smoother.
    You pick a car and fine tune it and drive it faster.
    This corner, this lap this, this race, how good can I be.
