Solid controls and graphics, otherwise lackingsuperhomosapien | Aug. 21, 2015 | See all superhomosapien's reviews »
Grid 2 gives you everything you expect in a racing game: solid controls (I use an X-Box controller, can't speak to the quality of keyboard or other controls with this game), plenty of well designed maps, and graphics. Not much else to say about graphics. Sadly for Grid 2, the story line is cringe worth - it really takes you out of the game. If Grid 2 dropped the story and voice acing, this would defiantly be a 9/10 for me.

I've always loved simulation racers, and after enjoying the likes of GRID a few years back, GRID 2 was a must-have. Racing Sims aren't for everyone, with technique required for precision racing as opposed to the all out rage and crashing on arcade racers. While GRID 2 can be frustrating for some in terms of the realism and accuracy required, features such as rewind, along with a few AI assists, make it easier for the novice to get started. And once you're all set, you can enjoy hours of racing around circuits, even up to full-length races if you so choose. Graphics and particle effects are amazing, while further realism is added on other incidents such as collisions, which blur your view for a few seconds. There's also splitscreen racing for two-player mode, something lost on almost all titles of late, opting instead for online multiplayer, losing the one-on-one action between yourself and a friend on the same couch. Strap in your seat-belts, the ride is aggressive and heart-racing.
Crashed? Rewind it!GatsuRage | May 28, 2015 | See all GatsuRage's reviews »
One of the genres most hard to get into, because car racing games are so fast, and it takes you big time to get used to the handling and overall gameplay, and most times you probably ended up rage quitting it. This particular car racing game is in my opinion the best one to get into the genre, it has an awesome mechanic that will let you rewind in real time during a race, tho these are limited use per race you will have an awesome tool at your disposal until you get the hand of it, and once you get good at it you will see how you wont need to use this tool again. Grid 2 has great graphics, good gameplay, and unlike grid 1, this one it has MULTIPLAYER! which is a huge deal because once you get too good even for the cpu, you'll have the chance to play with friends or random people. The history mode is very straight forward, you are a racer and you will work you way up from the bottom. You will have several racing modes, CARS (obviously) all type of cars to have fun with, you'll be able to customize it (NFSU fans will enjoy this!) and the soundtrack it's also very good one. The only huge negative of this game is the AI, or maybe was just me? it felt like all the cpu cars work together to F*** you up hard, it felt too obvious, then again maybe it was just me BUT if happens you encounter something like the entire world is against you while playing history mode, lower the difficulty. I hope you pick this game, if you like car games, you really wanna check this one out! Have Fun!
Too fast too furious, with car crashes.sakalj1 | Jan. 10, 2015 | See all sakalj1's reviews »
This game was represented as a simulation, the second part of Grid games. Grid was always simulation, and that's what I liked about it. But this Grid 2 isn't simulation anymore. It's not even an arcade it's just 50-50. Mix of simulation and arcade which are combined in a very good way. So Grid 2 will be easier to play to players who are used to play simulations. Game has big requirements to run the game, but it repays you with awesome graphics and real sounds. It has a very good multiplayer which is still alive even though Grid Autosport was released. So don't think and read anymore buckle up, start your engines and enter the world of racing !
Best single-player racer evercameronb | Dec. 26, 2014 | See all cameronb's reviews »
This is the best racing game I've ever played. The realistic car controls feel great, making the races much more difficult than Burnout, Forza, or Need for Speed. The campaign is the best of any racing game ever, because it not only feels more realistic, but it offers variety and options of how to do it, with many extra features. The online play is well-made, really the CS:GO of racing. It's quick, punishing, and requires honing your skills. No mouse support does drag this otherwise amazing game down, along with it being a bit of a CPU hog. Don't get me wrong, it runs, and has good graphics, but the graphics to memory ratio isn't great. Overall, I can't recommend this game enough.
