Well, Codemasters, I have been racing with you since Colin Mcrae Rally 2.0, V8 Supercars 2 and now in the present: coming from F1-2010 to 2013 I felt like a change, and decided over Dirt 3 that I buy Grid 2. First I will start with the cons.

-Firstly, NO DRIVERS CAM? What kind of racing game doesn't have that!? Even Colin Mcrae which was a 2000s' era game had it! I get the feeling this isn't a simulation game but more of an arcade.
-Secondly yes the realism. The damage model is excellent, smashing into things has never been so fun. But lacks, tire wear and rain? Can't change car setups in career mode unless its hidden? I have looked.
-Thirdly Racenet... I am logged in, but I cannot for the life of me, figure out why my times don't show on the friend scoreboard in career mode, I have tried logging out and back in but no cigar. As a competitive racer, I is sad about this.
-Lastly the price of the All In DLC is way too expensive for a game which is now dead. By dead I mean, I cannot find a single online race. I won't waste money on unlocking cars I cannot use.

OK now for the pros!
-Firstly I'm more of a grippy guy so seeing a variety of cars is great! I get such a rush from using the Caterham, it grips so well and it flies.
-The graphics are beautiful and at max settings I never dip below 60fps
-The career mode. What can I say, an immersive story in which you are a racer working up through the ranks with goodies like unlocking cars watching the protagonist gain social media attention and fans, The AI provide a challenge even though I have yet to lose a race or even finish second (Hard difficaulty, damage on, flashbacks on)

My conclusions is, as a racing fan who always leaned towards Formula One, it was nice to get back to actual road cars. Please remember this is my review, my opinion. I'm sure you think differently and you will let me know in the comments.

GRID 2 is a OK racer for the price

IS THE GAME WORTH IT?
The game is oke for a price under 10 dollar/euro more than that and you will regret your purchace.


the game was pretty much dead but with the free weekend new life was blown in the multiplayer.
the hadeling model is oke, and the fact that there is no in car view can be lived with.
i hope as the game is free for a weekend that racers will apricatie the game and see it's potention.

PROS
- good single player
- good looking graphics
- controller support


CONS
- to much micro transactions
- multiplayer is pretty dead
- handeling pretty bad
- little cdustomization

the game is a 7/10

The #1 Driving Simulator for the PC at present, far beyond the competition, and close behind Forza and Gran Turismo as the greatest Driving Sims ever made.

Accurate cars and tracks, with excellent physics, each car has it's own charecteristics which are lost on a lot of PC driving games.

Sure, it's like every other driving game, however it uses a range of tracks that aren't found in any other game, therefore keeping the game fresh and interesting.

Turn the graphics up to ultra @1440p and then it really shines.

Game is good but i don't recommend it for a few reasons unless it's on sale or you can get it from a trader:

_ "Racenet" If you want to do the global challenges or fully enjoy the multiplayer experience you need to have an account, like the rival thing. I thought your Steam friends are your rivals but no no, only racenets friends are your rivals.
_ DLC you have not many cars unless you buy the dlc, also some circuits are only available after you buy overpriced DLC (5$, 6$, 10$)
_ Your car is made of ♥♥♥♥ing polysteren when your opponents car are made of titanium. Ram them while taking a turn you fly away, stick behind them but keep accelerating you'll go at their speed and they wont even flinch. If they ram you during a turn you can be sure you'll loose control of your vehicle. If they're behind you pushing and you try to slow down or break you'll loose control, if you keep at your pace the back of your car will go sideways until you loose control. Driving a muscle car and getting hit by a roadster still makes you fly + damage your vehicle.
_ Drift cars, the worst thing in this game and there's plenty of race to do with these. The cars keep oversteering.
_ Pinball effect, if you hit a wall you'll bounce on the ramp on the other side of the road.
_ Sometimes if you're against the wall and hit a cone your car will explode.
_ Opponents are driving at your speed, if you're slow they'll be slow. If you're ahead of them they'll catch up with you no matter how perfect you're racing.
_ Except for you there's never any crash, if you're causing a pile up you'll be the only one ending up off road. The opponents will follow their racing lanes no matter what's happening ahead.

I think that pretty much sums up why i can't recommend this game, maybe these seem like small things but when every races you're the only one loosing control (and not just a little) once there's frictions between you and your opponent that you have to restart or go back in time every time it gets irritating.

About the good things of this game?

_ Graphics are pretty neat
_ Different kind of events (Touge, Race, Time Attack, Drifts, Endurance, Takeover etc)
_ Car customisation
_ Decent career mode.

Good arcade fun. Sure, not a simulator, yet fun with friends in online, and amusing in singleplayer. Only if the game was free, not only for the weekend. The fun lies in it's castualtiness, it is simple, but if you want to play simulator go and find one.

I'd say 9/10

This game is awesome. It's got decent graphics and online mode is good too. You'll have to be a good driver though in order to batlle it out with the pros in multiplayer.

A well-curated car list, a great sense of speed, and a well-thought out career mode combine in a racer that is a lot of fun to play through.

I wannabe a Rockstar
I wannabe a Drifter
I wannabe a Simulator
I wannabe a Arcader

This racer wants to be everything but is only bad at everything. Terrible race tracks. Boring cars and terrible DLC model. "Real" damage but terrible physics. Every car feels like you're dragging ten tons of sand behind it. No fun race modes. This really is an almost there but terribly short of it racer. And of course, everything has a nice high contrast extra brown look. UGLY!

Avoid this clunker.

I have not played a lot of racing games on pc, but I can say Grid 2 is one of the best I have tried. I hear a lot of complaints about it being not realistic enough, but for me that's just fine (after all my favorite racing series is the F Zero series). I have not played its predecessor but I can say that I do enjoy Grid 2 quite a bit. I am having trouble putting into words what I like about Grid 2, after all I cant even describe what sets it apart from other racing games. I can say however, that I have not noticed anything "wrong" with the game per se. It ran good for me, it was easy to learn, and it was fun to play, and in the end, are those not the most important aspects of a game? I cant tell you why you should be interested in Grid 2, but if you are a fan, you've got to at least give it a look. I cant guarantee you wont be disappointed. But you will never know until you try.

GRID 2?

Hoooly ♥♥♥♥, such an amazing game.

/Realistic/ driving physics,
/Gritty and true-to-realism storyline/,
And a selection of cars that can /easily/ be purchased.

In total, I give this game the highest ranking available, the IGN holy grail of 10 out of 10.

It a good looking game I give the game that.
If you compete in WC, be prepared to to each track several times. Since you compete against tanks with lightning speed.
They always hit you so your crash our turn around. If you succede to make them doit, they rubberband after you.

And by the way, the game dont recognize my Steering wheel;) Yeah a good car game should at least do that.
