So yesterday I picked up a copy of GRID 2, and after playing it for several hours and progressing through season one of campaign mode, I feel that I can safely summarize this game’s hits and misses.
+ Realistic graphics, realistic damage, decent car selection, a decent challenge, many forms of racing (touge!), simple controls, realistic engine noises, realistic tire smoke.
- No cockpit view, controls are a bit twitchy, limited options, surprisingly tight tracks, DRM.
Summary: buy this game new, not just because DRM, but also because DLC. In my opinion, it’s the bridge between Forza and Project CARS. It’s well worth the money, especially with the unlocks you get as you progress.
