I am having a lot of fun with this game. It is a lot like the old one but with a better framerate, not much though. The graphics could be better but they are still good for a race game. The online is awesome with a lot of the same tracks from grid 1 showing their faces so anyone who liked grid 1 will enjoy this one. I still haven't found the demolition part of the game, if there is one. I really liked that part from the first game. oh well, if it is not there they will put it out in a dlc probably. oh yeah, the driving is very precise as far as the controls are concerned. the cars are really fun to drive. I just wish they had put a little bit more new stuff in the game because it really feels like the same game but with better overall mechanics, which I guess makes it worth a play but I guess I just wanted more. It is still good just now WOW!
I played it for a couple of hours once I got it and so far I have liked it. I'm not too big into "realistic" racing games. I'm a Split/Second die hard (it's more arcade style than realistic), still dominating online since the game came out 3 years ago. The graphics, sound, handling and overall presentation on S/S has been hands down (and still to this day) the very best racing game I have ever played.
That said over the last few years I have been looking for other racing games to play too but I always end up turning that new game off and going back to S/S. Grid 2 does not make me want to abandon S/S by any means, but I will say it is pretty good and I may actually hang on to it and play it for a bit....maybe even buy it.
The cars don't look that good to me and the drifting is irritating (again, take that with a grain of salt from me as again S/S just does these 2 things better) but the track environments and the customization's and selection of cars are good. I like the season mode so far too.
I gave it an 8 due to it not being a total let down like any other racer I have played since S/S and the graphics and car selection and the fact that I actually want to play it more.
This IS a Great game..its little hard at first but when u get use to it, it gets easier.. Also graphics r top notch for the xbox 360. I just got done playing fornza right before i played this and i like it because its not trying to be fornza or need for speed, has it own feel and it kicks aas. Chances r if your dont like racing games u will write a bad review.. so dont, its anoyying. GIve it a chance and u will fall in love.
