I thought the original GRID was really fun and have been playing it again recently while waiting for this one to come out. I've had this game pre-ordered for months and was really looking forward to playing it...when I finally got hold of it I played it for a little over an hour before getting bored and finding something else to do.
So what's wrong with it you ask? It seems like the accounting department was calling most of the shots. They cut out the cockpit view saying that nobody used it and could spend their time better elsewhere. For starters it sounds like "95% of players never use it" is a number they just pulled out of thin air, and I don't really see where all of that time "better spent elsewhere" was spent. For a sequel to a game that came out five years ago, it doesn't feel really evolved beyond the original. Actually, considering the things they cut out, it's less of a game than the original.
All in all, it's not a bad game and there's nothing about it that's a deal-killer...but it does feel like it could have been a much better game than it is if more time and effort was put into making it.
Edit: This game actually gets worse as you progress through it; the shoddy physics engine makes driving every one of the more advanced cars nearly impossible. If cars actually handled the way this game portrays them, 100% of super-car owners would be dead.
A quick list of the good-- A nice collection of high-performance current-day (circa 2010-13) cars. A few somewhat cute game modes that require precision and style instead of just speed. Beyond a few details here and there I can't think of anything else.
Bad? Everything else. The cars have no "feel". Besides the cars being grouped into one of 4 "tiers", there is zero discernible performance difference between them. Some of them will kick out and drift more than others, but that's all; At high speeds they're all nearly impossible to control. Acceleration and braking are hugely exaggerated. The cars will only oversteer and refuse to understeer.
You cannot adjust settings on the cars. You cannot modify the cars. You will race the same half-dozen races about 20 times each. This so-called "racing series" of the game's storyline doesn't actually feature any racing cars. You will always start in the back of the pack no matter how long or short your race. An "endurance" race is timed for 5-7 minutes. Your total mileage in career mode will pitifully be in the 1000-1500 range.
No location library. The majority of the game falls onto the 5 "city courses", and there are a mere 4 full real-world tracks. Four. Horrible, horrible selection versus the original. There is zero replay value. Higher difficulties are simply impossible with the low level of car control the game offers.Read more ›
The graphics are nice, but the physics ruin the entire experience. The in-game commentator says it all... "Try to maintain your speed round this next corner by drifting." Uggh. You literally have to do what the game suggests and defy the laws of physics and motorsports to compete with the other cars. Thus, the entire point of this racing game is destroyed and the experience is disheartening and dull.

I give this one star for the beautiful cars (starting me in a Mach 1 mustang is a good way to my heart), and one for nice graphics. Beyond that, the game is terrible. Read morePublished 2 months ago by pskyhawk
The game came super fast and is in excellent condition couldn't be happier. Thank you so much!Published 3 months ago by Raymond Downs
Far exceeds my expectations mainly because its plain fun. Critics of the game are mainly simulation racers. Ample modes and Takeover in particular is a blast. Highly recommended.Published 7 months ago by D. Betancourt
Definitely not as good as the original GRID... nor does it come close to matching it's successor, GRID Autosport. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Rickk
