Fun and have a very good graphics but have very bad things....:

Phisic its horrible...
All matches in multiplayer the other player try to f*ck you...
If you want to go buy or upgrade a car you need to exit of the party and Online Matchmaking...
You cannot sell cars...
The Options dont save...
You cannot mute X player and if you want to mute all of the players you need to do it after go racing.


But its a "good" game to play when you dont want to play FPS or War Games.

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.

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.

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

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.

Abysmal.

Rubber-banding AI, nonsensical physics, etc.
AI cars will take little to absolutely no damage upon being rammed at 200 mph, but getting tapped by one of them will send you flying the opposite direction into a wall. Features include: unresponsive steering, horribly optimized graphics, very bad corner-cutting detection, etc.

Even at sale price, stay away.
I'd rather play Bad Rats.

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.

So I noticed today that GRID 2 was free on steam for the next two days. I haven't played any racing games in a while, and figured I would give this one a shot. So after waiting for it to download, and the lengthy load time - I see a cut scene of chicago that takes like 3 minutes to run through, until it finally zoomed into the car and then froze. Had to try to CTRL+ALT+DEL and kill the task, which did not work. It still said it was opened and froze everything on that monitor, thankfully I have two monitors. I get my computer to the point I see that everything else I try to open freezes as well and it will not kill the task, so it looks like restarting the system is my only option. Tell my system to restart and the windows restart comes up, and tells me that it needs to force steam (grid) to close. Fine. System restart then locks up as well. Ugh, this is the first game to freeze my system in well over a year. I think to myself, well that was annoying glitch, lets try this again. GOD DAMMIT SAME THING HAPPENS. 20 minutes later, I think I'm just uninstalling this bad boy. Kudos to being the first game to ever lock up my system so horribly though.

Just had a little go playing through the first few maps and my first impression isn't good. Lacks the balanced realism and variety of play mastered by titles such as PGR and the early Burnout games. Also not to keen on the voiceovers, very irritating.

All that said, it's a good challenge and it looks amazing in 1080p. I won't be keeping this game after the free weekend but there are some who might enjoy it.

Absolute dog♥♥♥♥.... for me.

If you like Need for Speed Hot Pursuit (201X whatever) then you'll probably like this. There is incentives to drift, things that will make your post 2000 baby self giggle, Honda NSX is considered a drift car. There is only one car that is "GRIP" that you can drive that makes the driving tolerable.

The introduction made me want to vomit. They tell you to drift in a RACE, they tell you how many "cameraphones are on you," show your video uploaded and "liked" and then you get an achievemnt after a scout calls you that says "call me maybe." This will forever be on my record and it makes me sick.

This is an arcade game for YOUTHS. YOU RUINED THIS FOR ME!!!!!!

Now back to F1 2010 for me.

Oh and were you thinking of just doing a Raceday? You have a Mustand(Drift),Challenger(Drift), randomly and Alpha Romeo(Grip THANK GOD), and a Honda NSX-R(.....drift). Oh you were thinking that NSX-R sounded like fun it's artificially drifty, and it rockets you into walls because it thought you were starting the turn when your tail slides out at the end. (Soft/Hard Drift Lock). However when you look at your cars, you can buy them sold separately DLC :)

Was Codemasters even involved in this game?

ABSOLUTE DOG♥♥♥♥.
