I normally don't write reviews but I feel that it is important to inform any who rent this game that you will experience problems with the game at season 3 of the story mode. Apparently there is a glitch that has been widely reported that causes the game to freeze constantly. Just to make sure I even requested a different copy from gamefly to see if the problem continues and it did. Now I can't say for certain that this issue will occur on the 360 version but it definitely occurs on the ps3 version. Some of the suggestions that people have made online do help but in the end the game will freeze at some point. My advice is to skip this game
Grid 2 is very realistic when it comes to controlling the car. By far the most realistic racing game I've played. The replay button is very nice too so that when you crash you don't have to start the race over again but you also cant mis-use it do to limited times you are able to rewind. The one thing I was not to happy about is the limited customization and upgrading. The only thing you can change on the cars is the paint job. It would be better if you could add body kits and upgrade the performance. Overall it's fair but it tends to get a little boring. Worth the rent if you like racing games but the replay value isn't too high.
Grid 2 simply did not live up to the expectations I had for it. The game looks great, but we all know graphics aren't everything. The AI is seemingly wheeled to win in any race past Tier 1, the multiplayer lacks entertainment, and the game actually took a step back in the physics department. If you played Grid and are thinking Grid 2 will make your wishes for the original come true, you may want to wait until Grid 3 hits.
