People are very critical with this game saying:
- Controls are pretty arcade
- You can turn and you must turn in every corner with a big fat drifting move
- It is not a true successor to GRID (1)

Actually:
- Controls are pretty arcade
- You can turn and you must turn in every corner with a big fat drifting move
- It is not a true successor to GRID (1)

So why I still recommend this game? Sure it is arcade and if you have ever driven a car with more than 200 HP than you will probably say this is bU11$h'"+t. I have not done it before. So I can say in here it is so much fun. There are a lots of nice cars, from the street and from the racing tracks also. Driving really gives you the 'fast' feeling unlike other racing games (and yes here I meant NFS). Tracks are also nice (altough maybe some more would be better but it is still enough for a career game). Graphics are okay I guess, the effects are cool but there are some details when you feel that it could have been done nicer - maybe it was a price to pay to let older PCs also run this.

If you like fast cars and you do not mind some little mistakes and arcade-ness this game is just for you. Else you should go with a real sim.

The biggest issue with GRID 2 (and GRID 1 to an extent) is how much of a realist are you?
If realism and or simulation of how race cars really handle is important to you, then GRID 2 is the worst of the bunch.

A comparision I like to make on how the cars feel in Grid 2 is with Ridge Racer as the handling in GRID 2 follows the same overly eager grip that allows you to take a 90 degree turn at 120 mph.

While the realism of GRID 2 is no where as dumbed down as a title like Ridge Racer, it IS pretty basic.

If you have ANY experience in driving an automobile over 90 mph, then you will know
that the cars in GRID 2 do not behave realistically at all.

Graphically the game is fine. Nice effects that don't bog my system down.

However, the gameplay and races themselves tend to get stale rather quickly.

Once you have raced a certain type of race don't expect to see much difference in setup, length or quality of the AI from race to race either.
The AI doesn't "get better" or any such luck, what you start with is what you get.

The multiplayer in GRID 2 is dead (in the US at least) and has been for a long time.
I have yet to find one single multiplayer session located in the US and no one ever joined any sessions I created.

In the U.K. their seems to be a bigger following to non-oval type racing and so you can usually find more multiplayer options, but not many Steam users are willing to fiddle with Steam settings to get locked into U.K. race servers.

All and all, GRID 2 was a big step back in the series with features missing, or massive DLC to get the whole package required.

I hear GRID Autosport (Grid 2.5?) is a step back to the Grid 1 roots, but to be honest GRID 2 destroyed my faith in the GRID franchise to keep me away from any hope of liking it again anytime soon.

If you are looking for a good arcade racer, GRID 2 is fine in short bursts.

However, if you are the type to invest in a wheel and pedals and know the difference in how a car handles with or without automatic gear box, then I would stay away from GRID 2.

Its a very good game though for me not as good as the Grid One was. I just like more simulation than it's in this part. The grid one gave a choice in multiplayer. This one does not. Anyway, playability is still very good, competition and player development makes it almost imposible to stop playing the effect "just one more race" is definitely there, then you become a new car and have to test it and so on. Easy to play, hard to master. And nobody should be angry that it is not an Gran Tourismo or a Forza. Graphics 7/10, Sound 8/10, Gameplay 9/10. Arcade 70% Simulation 30% Gameplay isnt the most important thing for me but I give it a nine out of 10 score because of the DLC politics.

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.
