Summary: GRID 2, like , toes the line between simulation and arcade driving perfectly to deliver a unique and challenging style of racing that you won't find anywhere else. There are some hiccups here and there with the physics and A.I., but for the most part GRID 2 is a joy to play.
Excerpt: Tower Defense games are something I have never really gotten a chance to get into. The idea of placing towers and letting waves of enemies take something from you didn’t sound appealing to me.
Excerpt: GRID 2 is the sequel to the street racing game GRID which was released back in 2008, and in my opinion, way overdue. GRID came on the scene around the same time that the Need for Speedseries was on the decline, and it was quite the breath of fresh air.
Conclusion: Grid 2′s unique mix of sim and arcade racing allows it to achieve a fairly enthralling racing experience. The simple driving and handling of an arcade racer makes the game easy for first time racers to pick it up.
Summary: As a singular racing experience, GRID 2 offers action that is a lot of fun to enjoy. It has a robust online mode and the driving engine itself remains as rock solid as ever. A few instances of the HUD being old, or the story being goofy aren’t enough to break the game.
Summary: " GRiD 2 " is a really, really solid racing game. In fact it’s a massive shame it’s not the best racer out there. If you’d added in a bit of rallying and some really powerful cars that handle more like the F1 series (especially since Codies have the rights and the tracks tied up), whilst having a...
Excerpt: After concluding several reviews of Codies racing games with a plea for a sequel to GRID – by far and away my favourite racing game of this generation – I was beginning to feel as if I had a second The last Guardian situation on my hands.
Excerpt: Developer and publisher Codemasters is back again this year with the follow up release to their 2008 hit Race Driver: Grid . Grid 2 continues the rich tradition of high quality racing titles from Codemasters with an impressive new storyline, additional cars and different real life inspired tracks.
Excerpt: Car nuts have a bottomless appetite for screaming engines and burning rubber, but they’re a territorial bunch. When a motorhead magnate sets out to unite the insular clubs of Grid 2 ’s automotive world with a World Series of Racing, you’re plucked from the crowd to serve as his ace driver and...
Summary: Overall, Heroscape is one of the
more pleasant surprises to come across my desk in the last several years.
It's not only a good game; it's also a great value for your money. Simple
but refined, it occupies that nebulous space between a serious tabletop
strategy game and a more traditional board...
Pros: Solid core mechanics that are a lot of fun to play and at a killer value.
Cons: The cheap and eclectic minis leave something to be desired.
