Another massive fan of the original the disc hardly left my console for 18 months of its life, on-line racing the FJ1000 around some of the worlds best circuits for hours on end, so was highly anticipating the sequel but as other's have mentioned I just don't know what went wrong.

Graphics and menu system have improved slightly but that's about it as everything else has taken a significant step backwards.

Where are the real tracks like Donnington and Istanbul? The cars, where are the open wheelers and touring cars? The handling feels like a cross between NFS and Forza, completely lacking any of the traits that made GRID 1 a great game.

Do the developers not do any research of what its customers play on-line as when ever I logged onto the lobbies they where full of people playing either open wheel or touring car around real circuits so why remove the most popular features for the sequel?

Seems to be a trend with companies like Codemasters and EA just producing slap dash updates every 12 months, although this shambles took 6 years lol, while removing parts of the game so they can sell it back to you in the form of DLC.

Not buying it anymore. Pull out your finger and start developing some new and original stuff and stop fleecing your customers with DLC.

Grid 2 so much anticipation i had for this game due to the first Grid being awesome all those years ago.
1st impressions stick as they say and this game is no exception.

I was instantly upon taking control of the game feeling what the hell have Codemasters done, they have americanized the game so it caters for their tastes just like they did when they ruined Colin Mcrea Rally and the Dirt series.

Your have this cheesey american voice over guy yet again popping up with useless info at the most inappropriate times some time the information is late like for example he will warn you of a spin after you either plowed into the spinning car or whizzed by it, also repeats it's self quite often as if the game only has the bare minimum voice overs recorded.....think fifa all those years back where you heard the same thing half a dozen times in a single match.

Then the game expects you to use drifting as much as possible ...... not racing in my opinion and only included to cater for americans and their silly x games stuff that plagued all of codemasters recent rally games.
The majority of the tracks i raced on so far drifting doesn't suit as most are tight even worse when racing as a single collision cancels the score the drift gives.

The AI of the other race drivers is nothing compared to the original either.
It has the sort of cheating physics that your always last on the grid while your rival's are up front with clean air 99% of the time.
Every AI car follows a set route and never makes a single mistake, not only that but they are quite aggressive in certain modes.

Car handling can be twitchy at times but nothing to ruin the game as a few races you will be knocking out lap times with the best of them.

i would like to think of myself as quite a competent and experienced driver of racing games, however this game turns every racer into their 60 year old dad when he first tries to drive a car with a controller on a screen.

The point i am getting at here is "experience racing on the edge of control by GRID 2's new Trufeel handling system" - this basically means you have the most basic control of the car imaginable; you drift CONSTANTLY. every corner. 120mph in a FWD Alfa and you can still drift - i mean really?! And then on top of that it is impossible to take a corner gradually as the steering is so instantaneous that as you approach the corner you end up turning straight into either your opponent or the wall. wooooo. and to top this off there is no real sense of speed; 70mph feels like 120mph so you have no idea when to break for a corner and end up crashing again ( but don't worry your opponents have much better handling and car control and can weave through your broken mangled car without drifting or crashing so all is fine and dandy.

they call it "dynamically changing Liveroutes" - i call it many many samey samey streets with barriers of which you have no idea if it is lap 1 or lap 7, or one big valley with many many samey samey corners. but don't worry at least you can drive a variety of cars from the off! oh, no wait, that's wrong. you get to drive one of 3 RWD 'drift' cars for like 10 races in a row ( and that's if you use the VIP code!) which are neither easy nor fun to drive. I only played for an hour and was bored and angry with disappointment so stopped playing.

and i would like to point out that i am a huge fan of most racing games and i am quite capable of not drifting and not crashing at every corner.

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.
