The graphics are great, the sound is fantastic, the driving physics are very nice, and it's easy to play even with keyboard controls. Buy this game for the single-player or playing rounds with your friends, *not* multiplayer with random people. You will find that there are not always people playing online, and if you pop into a session, then you may wait for the current race to finish just to be kicked from the lobby once the host returns to the lobby, and if you do manage to get into a race and then do well in it, you may get kicked at the end of a race. That just happened to me twice: I won but I guess the lobby host was angry so I got a message saying I was kicked from lobby, did not even receive any EXP or Cash -- the grinding is slow in multiplayer, which makes this even more frustrating. The first time, it was in a lobby doing 5-race demolition derby mode, 10 laps per race, and so I'd spent something like half an hour, so when the thing ended and I had won, I was very annoyed that I had just spent so much time just to receive nothing because the lobby host was acting like a small child. The second time, I played against 2 people who both had much better cars (they were higher level) and since they kept crashing and going off-track I got past them, but when one caught up to me because his car was faster he tried several times to ram me off of the track. I don't mind that, it's part of the game. Anyway, he failed miserably and I still won, but unfortunately it seems Codemasters has given the power to lobby hosts to kick players mid-race. Clearly, that's easy to abuse, and although it would be great if they'd patch the game to at least give EXP/Cash when you're kicked, I seriously doubt that will ever happen because this game has been around for a while already.

The game itself is great as are all the Grid games are.Dissappointing though is the fact you cant use the DLC cars during regular gameplay so basically its a waste of money and pretty shady by Codemasters not to disclose this before you purchase them.Other than that I would recommend theis game.

Get GRID 1 instead.

- Average physics.

- That glitch effect on the screen when you damage your car really ruins inmersion.

- Less than fluent UI.

- Car customization feels like a flash game.

Astonishingly good game for a small outlay. As far as car games go its great, but don't expect and simulator style physics or options from ricer games. It fits into a small type of game that's out there for racing fans who just want the fun racing and nothing to serious. Also make sure you get the DLCs cos they are great!

I'll be honest; i've never been a great racing sport fan in real life and same with the games.
But THIS one was special. It has a really great mix between realistic car racing sport
and the special "fancy" over-the-top drifting and overtaking moments!
Really enjoyed the campaign and the many options to play this game! (SP, MP, Splitscreen, Custom Races)
Would recommend EVERYone to try this game to see if they're into racing games.
Also awesome with friends in multiplayer which is still played! (Crash Derby for trolling hard! :D)

This is probably one of the best, if not the best, racing game on Steam. Sure, the graphics are maybe a year or two behind, but the game was released in 2013. That being said, I think that it still stands up to newer games like Forza. Every once in a while this game goes on sale for next to nothing. That means that anyone can afford it if they wait for the perfect opportunity. If you want a realistic driving simulator, look elsewhere. If you are looking for a great driving game with an incredibly vast on-line mode and a story mode worth playing, it's all right here. I like it. I think you'll like it.

First to say, I really don't like playing racing games. I tried this some time ago with mouse and keyboard and maybe one hour later I gave up and uninstalled a game. But now I got controller and it is completly different. Just finished the third seasson and game is really fun. A lot of cars to choose. I like the rewind feature. Some of the maps are really beautiful (dubai) and graphics overall is very nice. Game consist of a lot of racing modes also with I believe some completly optional which adds fans or cars, it is a nice feature. One thing that I do not like is that no matter in which position I end in previous races, I almost all time starting at last position and in some situations is really hard to get to the top from that.

I have a need....a need for speed...err racing. Grabbed a copy of Grid 2 Reloaded to check out some fantastic racing fun. $19.25 tax in with a bunch of DLC so I figured I couldn't go wrong.

It might not be the latest and greatest graphics, but I think it's a solid racer you can spend a few hrs messing around in it and having some fun. I am enjoying the career mode so far.

7.8/10

I got this game on sale, and I wanted to like this game, I really did. I loved the first GRID. The graphics are really nice, among the best for a racing game when it came out. The single-player story mode is cheesy, but it does okay to fill the gaps between races. The engine sounds are mostly accurate, far more so than the first GRID game. It's really unfortunate that this is where the good parts of the game end.

The driving physics are awful. Literally some of the worst I've ever played. I understand they wanted to focus on drifting and making it a key component of racing, but it is so poorly implemented that certain vehicles are essentially unplayable. Driving the Koenigsegg Agera R is a nightmare... it feels exactly like driving on ice, which I have actual experience with, living in a place that gets really cold during the winter with tons of snow. It's really a shame that ALL of the cars drift. All of the vehicles, regardless of being described as "Balanced" and / or "Grip" when you select them, will drift, no matter how perfect you try to take a corner. As soon as you hit the brakes, you can feel the vehicle start to fishtail. Some cars are okay, but I've found at least 50% of the time, racing is just not an enjoyable experience.

Even worse is the computer AI. They drive their line and regardless of if they hit a wall, if you bump them, and even if you try to spin them out, it's nearly impossible, they do not make mistakes. It feels exactly like a crappy simulation, minus actually simulating anything.

I did enjoy the first 18 hours or so in the single-player game. Really the coolest part of the game was my second race when I drove up the side of a mountain, fell back down on top of the opponent's car, and still won the race. However, after over 21 hours, I've finally put my controller down in frustration, and most likely will not pick it back up for this game.
