Graphically this is one of the most realistic car racing simulation games I've ever played aside from Sony's Gran Turismo series. There are lots of disciplines of racing to work with and lots of practice modes to brush up on your skills to become a racing master. My roommate is from Long Beach and when I showed him the Long Beach track on GRID, he remembers all the memories of where he worked and where his former apartment was etc, so if he can remember all these things I say the developers paid close attention to detail when designing these tracks. I use an XBOX 360 Controller to play the game so your experience may differ. If your looking for a racing experience that is different from the rest, try this game for sure. Just be sure to use the practice modes (Race Day) before taking on the story mode.

The drifting mode alone was enough to keep me playing for almost 24 hours! Its a blast with friends and the campaign is incredibly fun too!!!

+Fun arcady simulation
+No abs braking
+ Team management system
-Ugly yellow tint on everything

Its just a fun game. Not too serious but not too lax.

It's refreshing not having the option to enable abs braking. It adds an extra level of difficulty, knowing slamming on the brakes too hard will lock up your tires and render your steering input useless.

You get to create a paint scheme for your team, choose sponsors that reward you for winning, and hire a team mate. Its all stuff you really don't see anywhere. It really sets this game apart.

UGLY YELLOW TINT EVERYWHERE. I don't know why codemasters thought it was a good idea to make everything in the game look yellow from the sun.

花了26个小时达成全奖杯后决定完成这篇评测。
超级房车赛2是我第一个正版游戏,但预购奖励中的第一部却是我玩的最多的。作为一个N多年前的游戏,在今天看来画面不是特别出众,物理效果也不是数一数二,但是它的手感却是我玩过的娱乐赛车游戏中最棒的,极品飞车11-18无法与之相比。
当自己还在为别的车队效力时,渴望有着自己的车队,自己的队友;当自己驾驶着GT2组赛车排在勒芒垫底时,渴望有着自己的LMP1一骑绝尘,将所有人甩在身后。而这些都会在自己一次次启动引擎,一次次踩下油门刹车,一次次胜利冲过终点线后获得。
我喜欢开着Mustang在美国的楼宇中穿行,将一个个弯道化作一阵阵引擎的轰鸣;喜欢开着Koenigsegg飞驰在银石赛道,将一个个弯道化作一条条漆黑的胎迹;喜欢开着RX7穿梭在日本秀丽的群山中,将一条条弯道化作滚滚的白烟;喜欢开着Audi r10驰骋在勒芒的赛道上,欣赏着日出日落,聆听的人群的欢呼。
当我心情低落时常常开上几局解忧,看着一个个对手被我远远的甩在身后,听着队友与车队人员在无线电中一声声赞许,周围观众的一阵阵欢呼,所有的烦恼也被甩在了脑后。
codemaster希望你能再接再厉,继续做出更多的佳作

Race Driver: GRID is quite likely the last wholly enjoyable experience offered by a Codemasters title on PC. There's not really anything bad to say about it. Cars handle nicely, there's a fun variety of events (Drift and Togue in particular have eaten up a lot of my time), and the head-to-head battles with other Racing teams have some surprisignly excellent music. It plays well, sounds great, and looks very pretty. Highly recommended to just about anyone.

The best racing game you'll ever come across.

This game beats all the Forzas, Need For Speeds, Gran Turismos, etc.

The mechanics of this game are phenomenal, top quality graphics and many cars, tracks, tournaments, races to do!

If you can't afford the newer GRID games, definitely go for this one, it'll not let you down!!

10/10

It's a good game, until you reach the faster cars on a keyboard as it's quite sensitive in terms of controls, but overall it's a great game.

Pretty fun, fun, addictive, and has a great sense of speed. If your new to the GRID franchise or racing games in general, pick this one up over GRID 2 and Autosport as this game is LEAPS ahead of those two games.

GREAT GAME! I bought this game when it was on sale and got it for half its price or more. I dont regret a cent. First off the game can run on a factory PC with 4 gb of ram, no graphics card, and an i3 proccessor allthough its not too bad, and the drifting is great, I mean its better than grid 2 drifting and compares to autosport. The only unfortunate thing about the game is that it has no badge that comes with it.

Old but gold. Absolutely amazing, truely amazing mix of arcade and simulation racing. Great physics, great graphics for its age. For its price, definitely more worth it than the new NFS games.
