The return of the GRID franchise isn't as ground-breaking, but it is still a great racer.


GRID 2 is a fantastic looking game on the PC. The cars look great, which makes it a total shame that Codemasters felt the need to rip out the cockpit view, because I can imagine it looking spectacular in this game?s engine. The tracks shine with plenty of details and look great to drive around. Courses can sometimes feel empty, but when a little squirrel runs across the road or a plane swoops in the sky, all those tiny additional appearances give the tracks more personality to stand out from each other. Codemasters are known for their awesome menu designs, but GRID 2 plays it safe in this regard. Menus still offer great presentation, but not as much flair and animation is going on this time around. Sound design is brilliant, with loud, roaring car engines blasting out, giving that sense of power coming from high-performance cars. The return of the GRID franchise isn't as ground-breaking as I would have hoped for from a sequel to one of my favourite racing games this generation, but that doesn't mean it?s not a great racer. Codemasters still brings that balance of simulation and arcade racing with great graphics, quality sound and solid gameplay, but what stops GRID 2 from being this generation?s swansong racing game is its sheer lack of any real new ideas that made the first GRID such a cutting-edge racer for its time.

Not as good as Grid 1


I was a huge Grid 1 fan, and at first play this game disappointed me at how different it is. Grid 1 wants you to turn corners carefully, 2 wants you to drift drift drift all the time. It's very arcadey & far from the sim based racer 1 is. Multiplayer servers aren't very active, I think people have moved on to Autosport & other games. I really hate the corner cutting "feature", its punishment enough when you accidentally go over gravel or grass, I don't need an additional penalty for a mistake. One thing this game did well was a variety of gametypes. As opposed to just race, drift & head to head from 1, it added checkpoint, overtake, time attack & togue. As a comparison to Grid 1, it's very inferior. As a cheap racing game, it's fun enough.

Best racing game I've ever played


The game was fun from the start till the end, it is true that some tracks repeat in the camping, but as long as the physics are good it was always welcomed to get back to your first track in the middle of the game with harder AI. Cars are nice, you don't need the DLCs to have fun and complete the game. One feature that isn't that common in racing games (or any games really) is the rewind feature, hardcore fans might not like this but trust me, even with rewinding the game will get very challenging few races in! Graphics are awesome, cars are awesome, physics are awesome and gameplay is awesome. In my opinion this is one of the best racing games ever made.

Best in the Grid series


GRID 2 is an outstanding racing game. It has really beautiful graphics, nice controls (for keyboard and controller), it's well balanced between simulation and arcade. One of the features that I liked the most was the availability of split screen. I spent quite a few hours competing with my brother and it was a real fun. Other feature that can be considered as great is the multiplayer mode, which was absent in the previous game. In my opinion, the number of race tracks is rather small (and the same tracks are used in other GRID games) and they can get a little boring if you play a lot. But, I am positive about the game. I think it's the best in the series and it's really entertaining to play.

Solid controls and graphics, otherwise lacking


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.
