According to some statistics made by the developers, they removed interior view since only like 30% used it and upon playing the game for a while you'll discover that was not the only thing they removed to save development cost and time.

Pro:
- Good graphics.
- Decent audio, apart from the obnoxious low frequency noises switching between menus.
- Fun for a short while.
- Damage model
- Online demolition derby.

Cons:
- Lack of interrior view.
- Lack of any game music/theme.
- No rear view mirror, you have to look back.
- Extremely annoying slow animation transitions between menus, customisation..etc (aesthetics infavor of functionality)
- Pure arcade car handling.
- Most cars if not all are drift happy, as the game rewards drifting even in circuit racing.
- Extremely annoying announcer everywhere with a sense of humor matching a cheesy car salesman, and unskipable.
- Pay 2 win dlcs for online racing, as you get very few cars for online racing.
- Rubberbanding AI.



Overall impression: meh... skip it.

Best arcade-racing I've played since old school ''Need For Speed'' in every way.

Cherry 100% recommend GRiD 2.

I ran over a rabbit (by an accident). Nothing happened and the rabbit kept happily running. 10/10 nature friendly

This is a fun arcade-racer that I have really enjoyed playing since I bought it back in September 2014, Some people like to base it off the original Grid, but this game is definitely has more of an arcade feel to it while Grid 1 I felt was more of a simulator. The Online Multiplayer Racing can be fun and enjoyable once you get the hang of the driving style that the game brings to the table and also when you make friends with a bunch of other respectable racers also... The sad things about the Online is that it is dying (I suggest you switch your download region on steam to London-UK to find more people) and there are those occasional hackers every now and then that can ruin the fun, but I enjoy the hell out of this game and playing with my racing buddies... I would recommend you buy this game when it is on sale, the $50 price tag for the reloaded edition is kind of expensive when you look at the age of the game. If you are an arcade racing game fan, I would recommend this game to you. I would believe you would enjoy this game.
