In the event you’ve been ready for a high quality racing recreation, the wait is over! GRID 2 is right here to current you with an impressive expertise that may depart few gamers dissatisfied. The sport is an absolute blast and might supply tons of thrilling, action-packed moments on its quite a few and delightful tracks.
Story and Gameplay
One factor I actually admire about this recreation is that it truly has a marketing campaign of kinds, and in addition tries to get you emotionally connected to among the digital drivers collaborating within the numerous races. I discover it actually cool that drivers in GRID 2 have common names, and also you truly meet a few of them various instances on the observe. The sport is pure racing, although, there are not any cops, mafia, or something like that, so the story is solely constructed across the drama that occurs on the observe.
In fact, there’s nothing unsuitable with that, as GRID 2 options one of many best automotive dealing with methods ever seen in a racing recreation. Although the builders from Codemasters are calling it TrueFeel, the dealing with system’s aim is not to make controlling the vehicles really feel notably actual. The builders have aimed to strike a great steadiness between a practical and an arcade feeling, and it is protected to say that they’ve accomplished a beautiful job. This isn’t Want For Pace, as a result of it is truly very simple to fully waste your automotive, do you have to enter a flip with too excessive a velocity, however on the identical time the sport may be very fast-paced and packs an incredible quantity of motion, which makes it really feel like extra of an arcade-style racer. GRID 2 can also be a terrific racing recreation because of its number of gaming modes. You are able to do conventional races, however there are additionally some extra unique choices like Drift, the place you particularly should excel at drifting. Fortunately, the singleplayer includes a customized race mode, the place you possibly can simply choose the observe and the automotive that you really want and race towards the AI. A extremely cool possibility is the split-screen mode, the place two gamers can race towards one another on the identical machine.
Graphics and Sound
The unique Race Driver: GRID was merely attractive, and fortunately, the identical factor might be stated about GRID 2. The tracks, environments and the vehicles are completely lovely, with out being too complicated of their nature, and with out being too demanding in your system. Numerous results like smoke, mud, lens flares and glows add coloration to the visuals and are merely improbable. The one poorly-looking a part of GRID 2′s graphics are the followers scattered across the begin/end line, as their fashions are very low-res, however as soon as the race begins, the crowds of individuals across the end line truly begin wanting nice at excessive speeds, when you possibly can now not deal with the small particulars.
The sound method in GRID 2 can also be excellent. Since many of the recreation is a marketing campaign mode, you usually hear your buddy navigating you when you’re in the course of a race, warning you about potential obstacles forward or offering you with different beneficial data. Results like engine screams and crowd noises are improbable, whereas the music through the cut-scenes is superior and helps you get pumped up in regards to the upcoming race. The one factor I dislike right here is that music is basically absent through the races themselves, which is just mind-boggling, as it may be such a strong software in action-packed moments, comparable to those that GRID 2 is so stuffed with.
It is a bit early to say, however that is most likely the racing recreation of the 12 months. GRID 2 retains every part that I liked about GRID 1, and augments it with extra racing modes, vehicles, tracks and choices. The sport strikes the right steadiness between realism and arcade-style racing, which makes for a particularly enjoyable expertise general. I wholeheartedly suggest GRID 2 to each racing fan on the market.
