So many other options out there. Skip this one. You're better off buying GRID 1 and using Tunngle for multiplayer rather than dish out for this nonsense.

So should I just stick with the original GRID? I just gifted it to my friend as well so we can at least use tunngle as suggested above to play... But for some reason, I want to get this...

No cockpit forced me to cancel my preorder... Seems like I should continue to hold off.

Yes, fantastic game.

This is coming from someone with over 700 hours in iRacing, has played rFactor, GT, Forza, has all of the DiRT games *outside of showdown* played GRID 1 & 2 for over 100 hours each. and numerous other racing games and along with a YT pretty much dedicated to the racing games I play.

Is it worth getting because it's a break from the sim racing games you've played? I already have arcade racers to play that are really good.

If this is just good because it's a break from your sim racers, let me know. I already have those. :) I want to know if this is good enough of an "arcade sim" to hold my attention. If it's need for speed, I don't want it. I already have that and it likely has more features. lol

No I have other arcade racers I enjoy.

And personally Dirt 1-3 and GRID are not sims, neither is Forza or Gran Turismo, I consider those all arcade games compared to iracing/rFactor/Race series by simbin.

But I also play Flat out, Need for Speed hot pursuit *I really love this* Shift, and other games.

Its a fun game and well worth getting.

Forza nor GT are sims. Well, they are sims. Just sims for consoles. I have Forza(s) and GT(s). Also, I didn't call GRID a sim, I specifically said "arcade sim"... Meaning, it's arcade but with sim elements... Just like the first GRID was(Assuming GRID 2 isn't a piece of crap)... I brought up sim racing because of the hours you talk about putting into iRacing and whatnot.

I just wish codebashers would get back to TOCA.

I personally would love a new TOCA game, but its not going to happen.

If you consider GRID 1 simcade, then this would be a higher simcade game, far more grip then slip which GRID 1 was all about slip.

Its a good game considdering we wont be getting dirt 4 for a while.
Viprex Jul 21, 2013 @ 4:15am 
At the end its a good game worth buying when you get a discount. I would not have paid fullprice.

For single player I'd say no, it's a bad arcade racer. Grid 1 was *much* better. In Grid 1 90% of the cars were fun - you had to learn different driving styles for different cars, but you could win any race with almost any car in the class, and have fun pushing its limits.

In Grid 2, 90% of the cars are garbage. Like German cars other than VW/Audi? Sorry, all garbage. Like Japanses cars? Garbage beyond the starter tier. The drift game is just bad (not that it was greatin Grid 1, but this is far worse). Most of the rear-engined cars are so eager to swap ends that you can't enjoy pushing them.

There are some cool cars in Grid 2, but either the physics engine or the car setups (that you can't change) has problems, so 90% of them aren't fun. There was obviously no effort made to make all the cars in a class competitive.

The tracks also get old fast. They would have been a good additon to all the Grid 1 tracks - the combination of both would have been awesome.

Read some legitimate, reliable and unbiased reviews and make your decision on whether to purchase: http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/grid-2

I paid some 19 EUR for preorder (Internet is nice place sometimes). And Honestly. Get Grid 1. (for some 2-4EUR). It is so much more fun.

I cannot vouch for Shift 2, since it felt broken in different way than Grid 2 but on same scale.
So what you are left with? Colin McRae Dirt 2, Grid 1, old Tocas, Races, or wait till christmas or next year for Project Cars.

Never played Grid 1, but this game is good in it's way.

The car choice is aweful. There's not a lot of interesting low end cars.

The multiplayer is neat and plays more like Forza than the campaign.

It's better than Shift and Shift 2. Bumping into a car in Shift 2 will basically end the race for you, the physics are horrible there.

The story isn't interesting, I wish it had a bit more spike like the Need for Speeds.

It's not as good as Dirt 1, but I truly hated Dirt 2.

If you are looking for a new racing game because you're bored with what you have, it's fun but I'd wait for another sale.

If you are looking for something more like Forza, I'd avoid. There's no customization in Single player.
If you are looking for something that's more of a Sim, I'd also avoid.

Yes, it is worth it, Grid 2 is a million times better than Grid 1, blows it away.
