Just to give some background I've been playing Codemasters games since Colin McRae Dirt and have almost always enjoyed them. I don't really play their games for an in-depth simulation experience; it's usually more like I have a little time to kill and want to have some fun flogging a car around a track or through a rally course.

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.

This is a game that should have been extremely difficult to mess up. Codemasters found a way. Not only have things gone awry, but the game is a step backward from the original Grid in nearly every objective and subjective way. That's no small feat to accomplish. It has no right to exist. It doesn't have a conflicted personality in terms of "sim" or "arcade"-- It has no personality.

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.

The graphics are great, but the race physics where a little odd. My favorite game was always Forza but this topped it, although it was very difficult even on the easiest setting. The computers are very fast and very aggressive there are not very many tracks or cars and all of the racing is drift oriented. Over all it was a very good game but it could have been much better with just a little more effort, also they needed to make an easier mode. The game can be very fun and exciting but it will take some getting used to.

I waited years for Grid 2. Grid 1 was my favorite racing game on any system for it's mix of excellent gameplay and physics. Grid 2 is a big letdown. It's just your typical arcade racer. The story is very limiting and boring, as are the cars.

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 hated this game, but loved the original GRID. The cars available early in the game are too limited. The cars in general were all too similar in their handling. The events took place at the same locations all the time and were very generic and forgettable. After about 2 hours of gameplay, it got repetitive and I gave up. I honestly had to psych myself up to play this game. I also realized I'm just not that into racing games.
