Grid 2 races onto the current-gen gaming platforms, looking to appeal to both arcade racers and racing simulator fans alike.
PROS
Although not class-leading, the graphics still look great; exhaust notes of each car sound excellent; LiveRoutes feature in WSR mode keeps players on their toes; excellent presentation; realistic car damage; and the rewind feature works well if and when y
CONS
Lack of variety in car selection; lack of variety in track selection; can only change look of vehicles, not their performance parts such as engine or brake upgrades; and no interior cabin vantage point.
VERDICT
Grid 2 is one of the only racing titles likely to put an equally big smile on both racing simulation fans and arcade racer players. Unfortunately it lacks the variety needed to keep you entertained beyond a few weeks.
