not as good as gran turismo 5
the ai on grid 2 are frustratingly aggressive they dont give you a chance to move faster than they are
its a slow start
but lots of events to finish
Time to show what you got
this game is good for any race fan or even if your not I still think you should try this game. I am not big race fan but I thought I would try ot out and it good. it takes a little bit of time to get the hang of it. but it is a fu game anyway.
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
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.
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.
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.
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.
Online is a must
Game is great for all gamers .. Online racing is what makes this game.. Car modding is above avg .. The graphics of grid 2 did surprise me but acceptable
go get it
just a great racer. looks and feels great,plays even better.code master will never let you down when it comes to a complete racer.
I've watched every preview video on youtube and it looks awesome, the only downside is that there is no cockpit view...
