    GRID 2 for PC is one of the best racing games around, thanks to an excellent AI and gorgeous graphics.

    Grid 2 is a racing game that rewards skill without punishing you for the tiniest mistakes, letting you master a simple system with a forgiving attitude. It may stray too close towards the easy side of the scale at times, and it'll be interesting to see how the game works online (which unfortunately wasn't tested in this review), but its career mode is well worth playing and you won't be satisfied until you've mastered every single corner.

    GRID 2 doesn’t insist on tuning, there is no setup hassle – just driving fun with a great sense of speed. Unfortunately some problems remain untouched, among them the very aggressive AI.

    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.

    The more time you spend with Grid 2, the more you feel like its caught in a conflict of personality. However, there are no problems here that can’t be fixed with a patch or two, and racing fans will find plenty to enjoy. Here’s to hoping that Codemasters will support the game post-release.

    Every situation in GRID 2 feels the same, and there is a reason. Having collected more than 50 cars in my virtual garage, I can’t point out my favorite ones – they all behave the same way, without any distinctive quirks of ‘character’. And locations that repeat ad nauseum only make this feeling worse.

The result is a game that simulator purists will surely frown upon.... (lack of view, no tuning) but everyone else will enjoy. The locations and cars look absolutely stunning. The single player is meaty and the multiplayer is absolutely worth playing. Expand

Awesome graphics, many different real cool cars, amazing trucks, interesting carier . This game much better than Need For Speed Rivals . This game nearly on a par with Project Cars . This game even much better than Race Driver Grid and I think Grid 2 much better than Dirt 3 and even Blur . Excellent physics and I think this game is amazing and included in my top 3 best racing videogames .

    I have just re-downloaded Grid 2 via Steam and after playing the game for a bit I find it's an enjoyable racer. It's not a full on simulationI have just re-downloaded Grid 2 via Steam and after playing the game for a bit I find it's an enjoyable racer. It's not a full on simulation type game but it's still a good game. The game shouldn't need a top of the range PC to run on but if you do have such a machine then you can set all the graphical options to their highest and the game looks good. Expand

    No camera. Developer claims it is due to some usage data. This simply means they underestimate the intelligence of the average targetNo camera. Developer claims it is due to some usage data. This simply means they underestimate the intelligence of the average target audience member. This made me realize they are catering for people who care little about the detail and just want to "Driftzzzz" around "trackzzz". For currency you gain fans (or iz it "fanzz"?)

    Sorry Codemasters, this title does not cut it. You are clearly going after a different demographic. Hey, it is your IP, your project and you can do with it as you see fit. I will miss you and always remember the good days with TOCA and even Grid 1. After reading that stupid reasons for not including camera, I realized they honestly believe all buyers are totally stupid.

    So long Codemasters, take your reasons for dumbed down game, and your 50 obviously fake reviews somewhere else. TOCA will make me remember you fondly though, thanks for that and shame on you for Grid 2.

    Начала очень громко орать, пошла заставка, которую никак нельзя пропустить, или поставить на паузу, чтобы сделать звук тише.

    Начала очень громко орать, пошла заставка, которую никак нельзя пропустить, или поставить на паузу, чтобы сделать звук тише.
    После окончания заставки был выбор: Синглплей или Онлайн.
    Думаю, ну выберу сингл и зайду в меню синглплеера и настройки.
    Нет же, началась еще одна заставка, которую нельзя пропустить.
    После заставки началась гонка.
    И только в гонке можно зайти в настройки и убрать звук.
