This review is from: Grid 2 - Race Day Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
Similar to several other reviewers, I am a massive fan of the original GRID game, and was counting the days until this came out. Sadly, this bears no comparison to the first game. The voice-over which guides you as you start the career game is so irritating I had to turn it off, the races are almost entirely point-to-point sprints on street tracks with almost nothing but 90 degree turns and far too little of the gameplay involves straight racing over several laps on proper circuits. Ridiculous gimmick events where barriers move to change the track, or you score points for passing slow moving pick-up trucks driving slowly round the track, have replaced the great circuit races of GRID.
I suspect that if you like your motor sports to involve a rock-band, be scored by judges on "style" rather than who crosses the line first, be sponsored by an energy drink of some type and ideally have an "X" somewhere in the name, then this game might be for you. Otherwise avoid like the plague.
