I like the graphics and the way the car gets beat up. physics are really good too. it'sgood for a game that was made in 2012.
i guess i would recommend it but i didn't play it for long before i got bored.
i like car racing games, but this one isn't really my type.
i guess maybe im not good enough? lol
it's worth a try though

I normally don't give reviews to the games i normally play such as FPS because there so many annoying annoying people online, but this game really made my day. The guy in the tutorial is really friendly and encourages you to race, and the cars and graphics are stunning, however my car's handling is bad, i'm not sure if it is me (i am a beginner) or the game. Anyways, this game allows you to rewind if you messed up on an area of the track (eg. a turn) , so you can correct the mistake without restarting the race.

Be sure to read the game's info log to see if your computer is able to run it. GOOD GAMING EVERYONE!

Now people who say that its like driving on ice should try taking a rear wheel car and go full speed and turn their wheel ful left or right and see what happens. Because if you ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ that you dont understand when you play on keyboard and when you press right the cars wheel turns full right because its a ♥♥♥♥ing keyboard not a steering wheel. Besides if you really think you just going to slowly turn right or left while driving over 150 killometers per hour and think you not going to slide. Then my friend you are a ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥

I got this game on sale, and I wanted to like this game, I really did. I loved the first GRID. The graphics are really nice, among the best for a racing game when it came out. The single-player story mode is cheesy, but it does okay to fill the gaps between races. The engine sounds are mostly accurate, far more so than the first GRID game. It's really unfortunate that this is where the good parts of the game end.

The driving physics are awful. Literally some of the worst I've ever played. I understand they wanted to focus on drifting and making it a key component of racing, but it is so poorly implemented that certain vehicles are essentially unplayable. Driving the Koenigsegg Agera R is a nightmare... it feels exactly like driving on ice, which I have actual experience with, living in a place that gets really cold during the winter with tons of snow. It's really a shame that ALL of the cars drift. All of the vehicles, regardless of being described as "Balanced" and / or "Grip" when you select them, will drift, no matter how perfect you try to take a corner. As soon as you hit the brakes, you can feel the vehicle start to fishtail. Some cars are okay, but I've found at least 50% of the time, racing is just not an enjoyable experience.

Even worse is the computer AI. They drive their line and regardless of if they hit a wall, if you bump them, and even if you try to spin them out, it's nearly impossible, they do not make mistakes. It feels exactly like a crappy simulation, minus actually simulating anything.

I did enjoy the first 18 hours or so in the single-player game. Really the coolest part of the game was my second race when I drove up the side of a mountain, fell back down on top of the opponent's car, and still won the race. However, after over 21 hours, I've finally put my controller down in frustration, and most likely will not pick it back up for this game.

I like when games tell stories through gampelay. GRID 2 at a first glance seems to be about racing and social media but it's actually a post-apocalyptic dystopia in which all the roads are covered in invisible ice.

This game is no simulator, and i've only played with gamepad.
After 7 hours I have to say i'm disssapointed, coming from GRID 1.

The game now focuses on city circuits with different gamemodes (Elimination, circuit changes on the go...) and doesn't focus on real competitions like the first one no Open wheel/DTM/GT/LMP classes of events and no Lemans Resistance races when the season ends. In 7 hours i've only visited 4 circuits so far, with no serious competition on them (just regular races, with different car classes on the same race), and the handling i'd say is a bit worse than on the first, with they wanting you to drift in every corner.

The plot of the game is to make a new series of racing globally, taking the best drivers of each part of the world. in each part of the world there are different gamemodes. (guess what: in japan they drift)

The game also feels like it puts together different vehicle classes and they more or less perform the same (Chevrolet Camaro against a Alfa Romeo 4C comes to mind)

And the whole point of 'we have to get fans from social networks to talk about us' with the TV show stuff (The game's storyline, i'd say) just feels for 12 years old.

I'd say they wanted to make the game easier for younger people.

I really liked GRID 1, but this one is average, shouldn't call itself GRID.

I want to clear up that im not going to include Grid 1 to this review.

Gameplay on the tracks are mainly based on acrade style racing. Its all about investment in a new league of sport and becoming the number #1 contender and the number 1# fan.

What I like about Grid 2 are the tracks. They are fun and challenging to race on in career mode and online. The car personaliztion is near enough good, throwing in real life sponsors to put onto your car and personalize.

I was disappointed with the physics in use of the cars as the developers focused on the powersliding instead of clean turn exits to build better momentum through the corners. You may think thats essential for a great game but the handling will lead you to wreckless driving in most modes challenged on. Online as an example is almost unplayable for these reasons because players cant take full stable control around the corners for a clean race.

Another thing I was disapointed in was the input controls on the game. For a controller it wont be much of a problem driving cars but for keyboard users it will be. Most racing inputs ive used was the simple w,s,a,d & (Arrows) and have no issues playing them smootly. For Grid 2 its difficult as its not keyboard friendly in a way of keeping your car stable around the corners and attempting most clean races. Ive tried both controller (F710) & keyboard and its a major difference how you perform in the game.

Cockpit is not required in the game which is another downside for a latest racing release. DLC packs have been scattered around as typical developers want more money off you.

Pros:

+ Tracks to drive on
+ Personalztion

Cons:

- Controls are unstable
- Not Keyboard friendly compare to most racing games
- No Cockpit
- Codemasters greedy DLC Schemes
- Graphics are not as good for its age

My rating: 65/100
Metascore rating: 80/100

Conclusion:

I dont reccomend this game full price for the aspects ive pointed out from it. If steam provide a discount give it a go and see what you think. Hope you make the right decision on purchasing the game.

Game is good but i don't recommend it for a few reasons unless it's on sale or you can get it from a trader:

_ "Racenet" If you want to do the global challenges or fully enjoy the multiplayer experience you need to have an account, like the rival thing. I thought your Steam friends are your rivals but no no, only racenets friends are your rivals.
_ DLC you have not many cars unless you buy the dlc, also some circuits are only available after you buy overpriced DLC (5$, 6$, 10$)
_ Your car is made of ♥♥♥♥ing polysteren when your opponents car are made of titanium. Ram them while taking a turn you fly away, stick behind them but keep accelerating you'll go at their speed and they wont even flinch. If they ram you during a turn you can be sure you'll loose control of your vehicle. If they're behind you pushing and you try to slow down or break you'll loose control, if you keep at your pace the back of your car will go sideways until you loose control. Driving a muscle car and getting hit by a roadster still makes you fly + damage your vehicle.
_ Drift cars, the worst thing in this game and there's plenty of race to do with these. The cars keep oversteering.
_ Pinball effect, if you hit a wall you'll bounce on the ramp on the other side of the road.
_ Sometimes if you're against the wall and hit a cone your car will explode.
_ Opponents are driving at your speed, if you're slow they'll be slow. If you're ahead of them they'll catch up with you no matter how perfect you're racing.
_ Except for you there's never any crash, if you're causing a pile up you'll be the only one ending up off road. The opponents will follow their racing lanes no matter what's happening ahead.

I think that pretty much sums up why i can't recommend this game, maybe these seem like small things but when every races you're the only one loosing control (and not just a little) once there's frictions between you and your opponent that you have to restart or go back in time every time it gets irritating.

About the good things of this game?

_ Graphics are pretty neat
_ Different kind of events (Touge, Race, Time Attack, Drifts, Endurance, Takeover etc)
_ Car customisation
_ Decent career mode.
