Good game, great graphics with not too high specs required. Sounds is pretty good but seemed roary in cars. It uses a drift to turn mechanics but still has to slow down for corners. I only play in multiplayers as you can upgrade the cars. The single player pretty much like a basic unlocking game with some achievements, specials here and there. Get it on discount like me. Buy DLC only when you play a lot online multiplayer, and beware of carnages in multiplayer.

This game is just sensational. OK so its an arcade racer, not a simulation, but if that is what you want then there is great fun to be had. The cars and scenery looks superb, the sound is top notch and the crashes and car damage are great. The split screen racing is fast and smooth. Only issue is the time wading through menus and loading screen.

I put around 26 hours in the single player campaign. That is alerady worth the money. But there also is multiplayer. It's fun to play with friends and looks great! I recommend using a controller to get more control over your cars.

It's a nice game, lots of hours of fun. However multiplayer is too annoying with too many crashers which ruins it for me, they should be penalised somehow.

The vehicle control dynamics are certainly different from many other racing games. Someone stated in previous comments, that it's a lot like driving around in a snow. And it kind of is, sometimes. One of the main reasons I'm stuck playing this game is that it's challanging. Along with great graphics, good variety of locations and wide vehicle selection.

GRID 2 is a game that I really recommend because:
- is a method to banish boredom
- is a game with a wide variety of nice cars, nice maps, nice missions, nice landscapes etc.
- this game stimulate your competitive part
- has full controller support
- it has trading cards
- is a truly racing game
- has multiplayer mode
and... why you don't try?

Enjoy!

Great racing game for a casual go, nothing realistic here, a lot of cool drifting moments, people seem to make this game seem bad for that but it isn't trying to be a sim, it's meant to be fun and that's exactally what it does.

very good graphics and driving mechanics, and it's very fun to put sponsors on your cars! very nice career mode that you can set the liveries for each of your car. it's enough to be a recommended racing game.
but i miss my teammate from the first Grid game, it must be more fun if you can recruit one driver to be your teammate like in the previous Grid.

GRID 2 is one if the best racing games I've ever played. The Codemasters engine provides a very pleasant driving experience and stunning graphics (R9 390X - Ultra @60FPS). Single player career takes about 20 hours to complete with Easy opponents, if you complete all the races. Multiplayer mode is also a lot of fun, haven't come across cheating opponents yet. A Highly Recommended Game to all car-lovers.

Would play the SP career over and over.

Bought it for the online some 2 years ago, ♥♥♥♥ed myself because nobody was playing it anymore. Also the driving feels cheap, slippery and the game's a complete departure from Grid 1 where you actually had to build a team and work for money instead of facebook likes, which is re-tarded. I wipe my @ss in this game. Zero out of five.

I am NOT a racing game fan. I find racing games difficult to get into, often counterintuitive to control, and unnecessarily restrictive with cars and tracks.

Also, I'm terrible at it.

However, I found myself in the mood for a fun racing game after playing GTA V with its many amazing modded cars, and saw GRID 2 on the Lunar New Year sale, so I gave it a try.

I'm glad I did.

PROS:

- GRID 2 doesn't punish hilariously inept racers like me from the get-go. It does a great job of easing you in, and you can start on noob settings, like I did, or try genuinely difficult settings. It's great for all skill levels.

- It's FUN! Some racing games feel stressful. GRID 2 doesn't. The game does a good job of capturing the joy of driving.

- The controls feel INTUITIVE! You know how the best games almost make you "feel" obstacles with your controller, mouse, joystick or steering wheel? The games that make you duck IRL when you're flying below something, or recoil to dodge a projectile or piece of shrapnel? GRID 2 is the racing version of that. The controls feel completely natural from the start, and they are equally precise.

- The cities are lovingly rendered. You can race through Barcelona and see the Sagrada Familia looming over the streets; rocket through brightly lit Hong Kong at night; cruise Dubai's ultra-modern tracks; race in the shadow of the Eiffel tower...and on and on. The background art in this game is spectacular.

- It's well optimized. Framerate holds up fantastically, and I'm using a GTX 760, not the worst but not the best either. The important thing is, this game runs incredibly smooth, something that's always appreciated in a game where twitch response is important.

- The cars are awesome. It's not exclusively supercars, although the game has its share of Paganis and McLarens. There are American muscle cars, drift cars from Nissan and Honda, and high-performance vehicles from makers like BMW, Audi, etc. The paint options are legion, with a shading system to get the exact colors you want, and choices between things like metallic, matte, pearlescant, flip, etc.

- The game can be set to speak your real name, and your racing team leader gives you helpful tips when you're on the track or practicing. It's all situational, and so far it hasn't been repetitive at all.


CONS:

- While you can choose from any track (or so it seems) in custom events, you still have to unlock cars in career mode, unfortunately.

- You can change wheels, but it's not clear if they're anything more than aesthetic changes. That's fine with me, but maybe some people would want more depth.

- I'm not Vin Diesel.


OVERALL: Would recommend, even for terrible racers like me. Most of all, it's FUN.
