Great for people who like racing games. I say its just as good as Dirt 3. there are cooler cars over all its a great game.
Good racing game but not the best
This game is a good racing game but I still would say that it is not as good as other racing games out right now (ex. Forza Horizon). It has nice graphics and gameplay but over time, it gets tiring. The multiplayer is fun but seems repetitive, from a multiplayer standpoint they should have never took out the demolition derby from the first Grid. That was my favorite thing about the first Grid. Overall it's a nice game.
Could have been better...
I was greeted with a laggy opening cutscene as I dug into this game. Graphics resemble a game made in 2006, pure awful. Racing is a bit fun but gets monotonous pretty quick. I would not recommend buying this game until an update or DLC is released. Mechanics are simple but to easy, begginers can beat pro players easily because of the lack of skill required. Barely deserves an average score. Lack of polish and design cripple and make the game just plain bad. I want a refund!
Fun at first, not much appeal from there
I got this game the day it came out and was expecting/hoping it would be like the first GRID. However, right away i noticed that it played and looked very arcade-like. All the cars drive the same with slight speed differences, maybe other than some of the racecars which still drive unrealistic. I haven't gotten all the way through the EXTREMELY REPETITIVE career mode which takes forever and will bore you to death although I'd say i've put in 20-30 hours and still have another season to go but can't bring myself to put in the game just to finish (yes its that bad and I always finish the career before i play online which i want to do). If you are looking for similar gameplay to GRID 1, you're out of luck. They downgraded the graphics on the tracks and body panels such as when they fall off and end up on the track, however they did add some more damage issues like flat tires which was kind of cool. They also go rid of the little display of what is damaged on your car. After getting through the first 10 or so cars, my first thought was that every car drives like arcadie Euro Touring Cars from GRID 1 and the next 20 cars are the same. No in-car view is sad and the event-list is depressing. Like i said before, after 4 seasons or so, I have not seen any decent changes in the event list from the first season; no demo-derby, no endurance races like Le-mans in GRID 1, and no indy-cars. All in all, if you liked GRID 1 and wanted a game like that, just go back to playing that instead because GRID 2 is a pure disappointment. Very pathetic job by CODEMASTERS : (
Fun but not what I was hoping for
I was really really excited about this game because the first one was so fun and setup so well from the way the menus were set up to the great gameplay. It took almost 5 years for Grid 2 to come out after the first Grid in 2008.Grid 2 was really fun right out of the box but gets boring really fast unlike the first one.I have to say to wait 5 years for the second one to come out and expect it to be really good since it did take 5 years and it get boring after just the 1st season is a big disappointment.
I love the game Im just confused how to bring up the indycars can anyone help me. Im am extremely confused so anyone could help me
worst game ever , I loved the first , but this is baddddd , bad car control , game is too hard, Im a good player and always pass racing games on normal , but this game on normal looks like hard on other games , as soon as you hit something the car go out of control crazy
Great game/not Forza/not GT5
i think its very good. driving is very simular to the orig GRID. a lot of drama...but fun. lots to do. the game looks great. i have probley 1000 plus hrs on all the Forza's. love the game...but not every racer has to be Forza. this is fresh.
I'm a hardcore racing fan and I love everything bout this game! It has great graphics and sound. The only downfall is that there is no cockpit view. Other than that this is a AWESOME game and I would recommend it to all hardcore gamers!
worst decision to get this!
I got this the day it came out and it was a horrible decision. I'm a hardcore racer and this is exactly what i didn't want in a racing game. The graphics are horrible, the AI is overly aggressive, the Difficulty is ridiculous. I can destroy any racing game on the hardest difficulty without problem, yet I can't beat this even on medium. The AI also seems to powerful (I drive a faster a car and yet they pull away) and has an ability to take damage without repercussions. The Graphics seem good until you take damage (losing your hood) then it looks like something straight from PS1. The cars are very inconsistent meaning that sometimes they oversteer, understeer, or just dont react at all from you attempting to turn. The cars are the hardest thing to control once you hit anything. I was expecting to have a professional racing game, and all i get is a Need For Speed wannabe. Also, the choice of cars is very slim, and you have no way of improving them. The only thing i can truly commend this game for is the little customization allowed when painting. If I could, i would have never bought this game.
