How I tried to stop worrying and love the drift

  • Conclusion: The single-player campaign's half-hearted mixture of social media bandwagoning and corporate celebration is truly bizarre.
  • Pros: Lovely track environments, delicious vehicle handling, intriguing event variety.
  • Cons: Occasionally aggressive AI behavior, unconscionable amount of grind in single-and multi-player.

GRID 2

Game Over Online
10 June 2013
  • Excerpt: GRID 2 was long-rumored, but fans of the original felt like the series would never get a chance to continue due to DiRT getting Codemasters’ focus for racing action in the succeeding five years. Thankfully, nearly a year ago, a follow-up was announced and the fanbase rejoiced. GRID was an incredible game then and in replaying it now before this game, has held up alarmingly well compared to most games in other genres released at that time.

Grid 2 Review

GameSpot
4 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The first few moments of Grid 2 should be a disaster. You're strapped into a bruising muscle car and immediately asked to negotiate the corners of downtown Chicago amid a cavalcade of roaring V8s. But rather than serving as a messy reminder of why so many driving games ease you in with something a bit more sensible , this opening race is a perfect example of what makes Grid 2 such a blast.
  • Pros: Handling strikes a great balance between arcade and simulation, Stellar audio and visual design, Broad selection of events reflect a variety of driving disciplines, Engrossing multiplayer
  • Cons: No driving assists to fine tune the difficulty, Occasional frame rate hitches during collisions

GRID 2

  • Excerpt: In 2008 Codemasters gave us GRID, an underrated little game that  admirably straddled the line between arcade racer and simulation and first introduced the ‘rewind’ feature that’s now become commonplace; now, after five long years, Codemasters has returned to the well and finally released the long awaited follow up, the imaginatively titled GRID 2. Does this latest entry in the TOCA Touring Cars series have what it takes to break free and lead the pack?

  • Conclusion: Yet another superlative racer to add to Codemasters' ever-expanding racing hall of fame, GRID 2 is an incredibly strong sequel. It may lack the initial 'wow factor' of the first game, but the handling is right on the money, the visuals are gorgeous and the hook provided by the story's WSR MacGuffin draws you right into the thick of the action, making for a more gratifying overall experience. GRID 2 steps on the gas from the get-go and doesn't let up.

Race Driver: Grid 2

IGN
28 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Last year’s Dirt Showdown never really knew what it was. Grid 2 does. Its continued shift away from its sim pedigree will still disappoint those of us who fondly recall the Race Driver games of old, but it still a great, modern package. A well-curated car list, a great sense of speed, and a well-thought out career mode combine in a racer that is a lot of fun to play through.
  • Pros: Great looking effects, Fun, aggressive racing, Clever career mode
  • Cons: Needed more circuits, May frustrate sim junkies
