Average racer and definitely not a proper sequel to GRID 1

GRID 2 is not a great racer back when it first release, the lack of race discipline variety, road car focus, average driving physic and weak track selection really kills the game. The driving physic in the game is more to the arcade side (more than GRID 1), the tail of the car is constantly out even the GT3 cars cant really take a corner steadily. The game modes included in GRID 2 are Live Route, Endurance, Time Attack, Race, Elimination, Touge, Face Off and Drift.

Even with all DLCs, the game still feels empty in comparison to GRID 1. The DLCs adds 2 new tracks which is Spa and Bathurst, the DLCs tracks are great but 2 great tracks cant really save the poor tracks selection from the base game. As for the DLC cars, the AIs wont use them. You will always be the only driver driving it and there are a few weird car classing for the DLC cars. For example the Ford Sierra is class with the modern Volvo S60 for some reason. The drift cars can be used in normal racing mode but those cars lack of top speed. Another example is the Tier 3 cars, the Ariel Atom and Caterham SP300R could easily outrun the typical supercars like Aston Martin Vanquish and Mclaren 12C.

I suggest getting GRID 1 will be a better choice, it may be old but it plays a lot better. GRID 2 will be suitable for you if you dont mind the drifty driving physics.

Good racer, now with all DLCs

Grid 2 is a great racing game. Sure, it's more on the arcade side than a realistic simulation, but in the arcade class it really shines. It can be both thrilling and relaxing, and can even be played in split screen mode, so you can enjoy the game with another gamer sitting next to you. And now the Reloaded edition gives you access to all the DLCs released so far - new cars, new tracks and game modes - they all can keep you interested in this game for even longer. Comparing the price of the game all the DLCs purchased individually and the Reloaded pack, it's obvious that it's better to get the whole pack instead of purchasing things individually.
