Rated 3 out of 10 by StingerNFla Big let down all the way and high price
This is the caliber of racing game I would expect to see for 19.99 in a clearance bin type of game. I have every PS3 racing game and would rate this one towards the bottom of all. I had high hopes for this new version but really don't see a big step up. The graphics reminded me of an older style racing game, online gaming really gave no excitement and although there are lots of cars the performance and handling are at best average. This would be a decent game in the range of 19.99 but should not be anything more and that would include online accessories as well. Just as an example the racing game "Split Second" which came out about 4 years ago absolutely dwarfs this game for excitement, graphics and fun. That game can be had for under 20 bucks. You can see this game going down in price already and it just came out. I would wait until you can get this for under 20, otherwise I promise you this is not close to being worth the money.
Rated 6 out of 10 by Jonstot123 Not up to my expectations
I wanted grid 2 to be an amazing game, unfortunately it did not live up to those expectations. this game major downfall is that its incredibly boring, i played the game for about 3 hours and have desire to play anymore. it takes awhile to complete each season, and its lack of different cars for each events is why its so boring in the first grid each country had very few different races but it had a lot of different disciplines so for instance you had a touring car race and a formula 3 race. but in grid 2 its like a race in a tier one car and an elimination in a tier one car. even changing cars its the same thing the other thing wrong is the handily, if you're in a rwd car you can try to be as smooth a possible but you'll still end up sliding all over the place, and over all the way the cars handle is very arcade like. and another thing that bugs me is there's no cockpit mod at all, other than that the graphics are beautiful and the tracks are great. the sound can be a little off for some cars but over all thats good the multiplayer seems fun and the amount of sponsors is great. do overall i think grid is only a good arcade racing game.
Rated 1 out of 10 by STARSTONER88 This sux!!!!
Sure graphics are awesome, so is sound whenever it works. This online game works a lot like need for speeds hot pursuit. takes FOREVER to log in and get into a race. sometimes (for me) i cannot even get in. it will just load until you reset. the amount of cars available is quite limited and so are the customizations. like in pro street you can adjust differentials and suspension, not here. NO FREE ROAM. what happen to street/city racing where you can roll up and flash lights/honk horn and race, not here. if you were to count the time it takes to get into a bullcrap race where kids knock you off the road compared to the time it takes to log into call of duty and whip booty, it is no comparison. In my life time is key and this game does not consider that.. so 2 stars for me.
Rated 10 out of 10 by GIBBANATER Grid 2 with G27
I purchased Grid 2 yesterday and I was honestly worried about it. Most of the reviews seemed to be negative and the problems aren't much of a big deal. When I started playing the game with the G27, everything changed about my worries for the game. The handling was spot on and excellent, the throttle response and the braking were great. Yes, some of the graphics in the game are not really that great, but there very minimal to the main purpose of the game. (ex the people in the background) Online is great with this game, you never have to wait to join a room and if you do have to wait, the game that is in progress is almost done. Grid 2 is an great game, and if you have a racing wheel, it makes the experience so much better.
Rated 2 out of 10 by ActiveShadowForce Horrible Gameplay
Wow. really disappointed in the gameplay mechanics of this game. I play a lot of racing games and this is by far the worst. Horrible control.You use the brakes and all heck breaks loose. You're constantly trying to correct oversteer and you fishtail into EVERYTHING. It doesn't help that the first official race you're in a wooded area with rocks, trees and cliff drop offs. I've played this game 2 days straight and can't get off the first levels. HIGHLY FRUSTRATING, not fun at all. You have to program some give into the game, if I nick a guardrail, I shouldn't go flying into the air or out of control. Save your cash for something else.
Rated 7 out of 10 by jorge415 Eh... Expected better
Over all it is an ok racing game Graphics are good, gameplay so so nothing spectacular. The most disapointing thing maybe the multiplayer there needs to be a hardcore mode where people race not this demolition derby stuff people pull on regular online race mode or some sort of penalty for purposly wrecking people. I probably give it another shot but I don't see it lasting more thana month on my shelf.

Grid is by far one of the best racing games out there. There are a few that come close but Grid is on a league of it's own. The original came out 6 years ago and I still go back and play it. I can't say that about any other racing game. This is a must have. If you don't have the original, pick it up, it's def worth every penny.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Champion525 Looks Great!
This game looks pretty cool, my favorite type of sport games is racing. The places u race in look awesome, in the middle of cities, highways, and rural areas. The racing itself looks intensed and the looks of the cars r awesome. I cant say that i cant wait bc i really have interest in Need for Speed but it should be a pretty cool game.
Rated 7 out of 10 by Darkstar301 But!
Hardcore or not it's really hard to get involved with the online part the of the game the rank system is not really that good and there are a lot of dirty racesers playing plus people with no real concept of how to race not saying I'm really that good but I do no I'm not that bad ether
Rated 0 out of 10 by Darkstar301 WOW GRID 2 you what hard core
I'm glad they finally have one of the best racing games back. just please stay true to grid I loved the first one. I have several racing games. but out of all of them. grid was the one if theres people that don't like it. that's fine with me but you would be missing out on one of the best racing games going
