GRID 2 manages to inject a nice dose of realistic physics within an arcade style racing game. The result is a game that simulator purists will surely frown upon.... (lack of view, no tuning) but everyone else will enjoy. The locations and cars look absolutely stunning. The single player is meaty and the multiplayer is absolutely worth playing

Welcome to GRID 2, the GRID game that doesn't have a cockpit view, and the land of Train-racers. The A.I. are so dedicated to their line that they might as well be trains on a track, just sliding through, perfect braking, perfect cornering, perfect everything. Though playing with a friend makes this game much better, playing it alone is just tough. Also, if you think I just suck at the game, yes I do. I am terrible at this because I do not have a decent controller to play on this game, only my keyboard which I am not used to. Regardless, this game is still fun with friends even if the A.I. is complete ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t. TL;DR, A.I. are trains, fun with friends. Play if you enjoy arcade-y racing.

For starters, I'm not really sure if I really like this game or if it's starting to get really annoying.

As someone who really liked the first GRID, GRID 2 starts off nicely. The somewhat familiar handling and feel to the cars is there, the atmosphere is nice and especially the tracks feel nice. The UI is straightforward and easy to use, but maybe a bit on the slow side when it comes to the garage and customizing liveries for your car.

So far, I'm having fun. I'm getting a good feel with the cars and handling, I get to know most of the tracks and all seems fun and games. But once you start progressing in the game, the infamous bots start to get annoying really fast. The back of the pack brakes really, really early into corners, cuts you off intentionally from overtaking and you literally have to sit there and watch as the top 3 bots get further and further away. You literally have to plow your way into the top 3, no bumbers spared, at which point the leading cars have gotten way too far away to catch up. So you restart. Over and over and over again until the AI screws up and you get a run where you get to the head of the pack early and have a decent chance.

That's when I started to realize that there really hasn't been any feel of being the better driver in this game. Sure, your cornering improves over time and you get to know the tracks but most of the time youre just fighting the same AI that literally feels scripted with the head of the pack always pulling really far ahead and the rest of the bots are there just to ♥♥♥♥ you in the ♥♥♥.

There is, however, some difference to the types of race youre attending. Regular races and time trials give you the most pain with bots, elimination and face-offs feel decent enough and enduraces are ridiculously easy even on the hardest difficulty.

Still, on my first playthrough few years back after GRID 2 was released, I remember having tons of fun and maybe I'll get that feeling again once I finish the game a second time. I heard online-play is decent but with quirks of its own but I haven't tried it for myself.

TL,DR; Recommended but with reservations, decent arcade racing to enjoy on your own or with friends. Steam Controller recommended.

The pros:
- Great game for you if you like racing games with no open world.
- It's easy to control. My 5yo learned fast and loved it. I bought for him.
- It has a flashback feature which feels totally like cheating but well... it's in the game so...
- Graphics are awesome.

The cons:
- Price is high for what it delivers.
- No car mods.
- The base game gets you so few cars. They removed like 90% of the cars of the main game and put them on DLCs for sale.
- Won't let you skip cutscenes. I hate games who do that. The impression is that the game thinks its cutscenes are SO AMAZING that you should see them. Not only cutscenes but you also can't skip little transitions in the game, which is annoying.
- On windows 7, alt tab will mess up video resolution and sometimes not even get input anymore, only after restarting the game.
- No real "first person" view with handle bar and everything. Also no handbrake controls, you'll have to drift with your regular brakes. Also no mirrors, but you do see a little arrow when cars are close to you.

Grid 2 is a really good game with a decent career mode, nice graphics and great optimization.
Online play is good, this game is region locked though, people who can't seem to find online game lobbies need to change their Steam D/L region.
There is no anti-cheat so there are a few cheaters that are in lobbies daily. Other than the cheaters, it is a fun game online. The store page should be edited to reflect the fact there is NO VAC or any type of anti-cheat in Grid 2.
I still give it a 8/10 though. It is a good arade syle racing game, overall.

Grid 2 is a racing game that rewards skill without punishing you for the tiniest mistakes, letting you master a simple system with a forgiving attitude. It may stray too close towards the easy side of the scale at times, and it'll be interesting to see how the game works online (which unfortunately wasn't tested in this review), but its career mode is well worth playing and you won't be satisfied until you've mastered every single corner.

-Great graphics a stunning details.
-Most realistics drifts.
-Every detailing of cars n atmosphere is done perfectly.
-Great choice of cars.
-The aim Increasing Ours Fans By the sponser objective is new for me and i liked it .
-Different kind'a races such as drift, overtake, time attack ,etc are also nice n i liked the overtake one as its different from nfs series as they have limited races such street race, drag race , time attack ,etc.
-If you have Played NFS Series and liked it You will surely like this game as its somewat different kind of racing game then nfs street racing.
-Great Car Handeling .
-Releastic sound of cars are also awsome.


I will give this game overall 9/10 points. If You are a racing game fan you should buy this game.
