I love Codemasters's games. The Dirt series has been a favorite of mine. I passed on Grid one cause reviews werent that great. Man im sorry I did, Grid 2 is as great as the Dirt games have been. If you enjoy a perfect middle between arcade and simulation rent this game. Its very fun and its beautiful.
Grid 2 was a OK racing game. I think its more geared to the audience of Arcade racing, I myself am a sim racer and at the start the game was OK for me, but as soon as i found myself having to drift on the road courses just to keep up i found myself bored with it.
Pros: Really fun,Pretty easy,Great selection of events
Cons:Sim is not there,Small selection of cars(Compared to GTA/Forza) No Assist can be changed(always on) ABS/SCC/TCS
