Not Bad, Not Mind Blowingly Amazingmossiprose | Nov. 3, 2013 | See all mossiprose's reviews »
I loved the first Grid game. And I totally love this game too. I find it is a little easy, a little more arcade racer than its predecessor. I do not feel this detracts from the game, just something you notice over time. It is amazingly beautiful, from detailed tracks to smoke effects that react to speed and environment. If you are a racing fan, I recommend picking it up, just know that it is fairly easy to win. Online play is fun, but a lot of people just screw around instead of race, more easy wins. At the time of writing this, the game is on sale for half price, this is an amazing value for what you are getting. So give it a shot.
Best PC Racing Gamejesterx7769 | Nov. 2, 2013 | See all jesterx7769's reviews »
Grid 2 is indeed the best PC racing game even though that is not saying a lot because of the lack of competition it has. The F1 games are the only ones close as well as maybe Dirt 3 but those games are very different. Grid 2 has gotten some heat from hardcore driving fans but at the end of the day you do not have very many options to drive a McClaren or other super cars. One positive is that the game does look good on max settings. I have a good machine and run the game getting over 100 fps and the lighting looks great. At the end of the day there are not many options and this game is very fun to play for a driving game even though it has some cons. I give the game a 70 because it deserves a green or a “yes you should play it” but without a lot of innovation or doing anything great I cannot rate it higher.
Great Arcade(ish) RacerPvtmini | Oct. 31, 2013 | See all Pvtmini's reviews »
Have you ever had that urge to get out there in that awesome car, and just race through the streets of Chicago, to the sound of the roaring crowd, the thundering engine and the sound of adrenaline pumping through your veins?
I know I had. And GRID 2 delivers the second best thing. All of the above, but virtual (which means no sweaty armpits and no sore necks from crashes).
When it comes down to it, GRID 2 is more of an arcade style racer, than an actual simulation. Sure, the physcis engine is amazingly great, and the graphics could well be taken out of the real world. But when it comes to handling, the cars are way too... Cartoony. They accelerate way too fast, and their brakes are insanely good. Its like you're driving a darn F1 car.
That does make it one helluva lot of fun to play with your mates, weekend after weekend. Racing around the world in slightly-too-fast cars, and wrecking each other on purpose. That is fun.
If you are looking for a great arcadestyle racing game, with amazing graphics, beautiful sounds, close-to-perfect damage physics and hours of mindless violent fun, then this is it.
If you are, however (like I was) looking for a game more like the very first GRID. Don't bother. It's nothing like it. It's a great game, but very different in every way. I'd say you'd be better off getting Forza 4 for Xbox 360. But that's just me :)
Hope it helped. :)
Nice (The best) Multiplayer Racing Gamespongengebob | Oct. 12, 2013 | See all spongengebob's reviews »
I like the game and the multiplayer the games graphics and car sounds etc. are really good. I miss the Cockpit-View but when you play its not so important. The is unplayable without a controller but if you have one all is good. It makes much fun to play with friends. It's like COD or Battlefield with cars instead of weapons.

This is a great game if you aren't expecting a racing simulator. For me the feel of GRID 2 is very arcadey and very different from the overall feel of GRID 1. However it is incredibly fun. The career mode is fun and addictive and online mode is a great especially when played with friends. GRID 2 looks fantastic too!
If you are looking for a more forgiving and fun racing game then you can't g wrong with GRID 2!
