you have got to be kidding me. apart from a slight change in visuals, there is NO difference between GRID and GRID 2?! a massive lol at the Chicago vid as well as I actually thought that was GRID.

I really hope im missing major parts of this, but i fear not. it looks like the handling model is the same too...

you can really see where they've used the extra proccessing power from the removal of the cockpit view...

I didnt see a single jaggy in either video which is mightily impressive, However i'd of preferred cockpit with GT5/Forza level of jaggies :(

Most likely PC footage with lots of AA. But as a fan of GRID 1, this looks dull. Where are the vibrant colors??? No, Codemasters thinks that washed out colors are what we need in every racing game they make. This and no cockpit view: no buy at all.

so dear devs, is there a way to win those (2/3/4 lap) races without behaving like an asshole ?
why am I always forced to drive like a maniac in these games?

Because it's not a sim?

Looks good to me, a bit floaty but I think that is the car they are driving in the demo. Remember there is nearly a year to go before the game is released so there is plenty of time to polish it up and sort out the handling.

The graphics are awesome, but the handling is abysmal! You cannot even drift like this in DiRT. Why does every arcade racer have to be about sliding through corners these days? Very disappointed.

A sim isn't just for driving uber cleanly, nor an arcade game about driving like an arse.

I also found that to pass anyone you had to smash and bash your way through, but because it causes damage, it hinders the rest of your race.

Sim games you race properly, Arcade games you race like a maniac.

Amazing. This is what racing games needs, great tracks. Only GT5 has amazing variety of tracks but Grid2 will have great atmosphere and fun to play. This cam though sucks. Grid already could be amazing if the cars were not so twitchy.

You guys are the reason I don't come to this site anymore. You're all whining like little girls, but you're gonna play the game to death.

  • amerakindesi
    amerakindesi @Megido: borrow a friends windows 10 or xbox one, used the wire so you don't have to worry about wireless drivers and update the controller from there? (29 minutes ago)
