If you are looking for an aggressive racing game that pushes the envelope, you’re looking for Grid 2. An interesting game that takes from, and improves upon, many things from its predecessor, Grid 2 is franetic fun wrapped up in functional and enjoyable game. Not the prettiest title in the genre, but this game is well-made and knows exactly what it is about. If you want to play a racing game that doesn’t waste your time and pulls you in with an interesting concept that is delivered nicely to the player, you are going to have a great time with this one.

Gameplay

The gameplay is as you would expect, a little more arcade than simulator. Like Burnout Paradise, Forza Horizon 4 or Wreckfest, this game wants you to have fun, not stress your way through all the races. That said, there are still a few things like vehicle damage, both cosmetic and mechanical that cause you to think a few turns ahead. There are a lot of gameplay modes for you to engage in here. Checkpoint races, elimination races, time attacks and the classic race that means you need to get from point A to point B as soon as possible are all here and more. If you are after a solid racing game that is sure to be a blast, you’ll love this.

Visuals

The visual effects, be it the reflection of the streets on the hood of your car, the fireworks in the night races, and the small particle effects in the form of leaves and such that blow across the screen make this a hell of a game to look at. That said, I cannot praise it through and through. Although there is a lot to see here, a lot of the time the maps are a little lackluster. Races in places like Paris are absolutely stunning, but Japan or an established racing circuit often leave a lot to be desired. Regardless of that, unless you’re slowly cruising around a racetrack like its midnight outside your ex-girlfriend’s house, you probably wont even notice.

Story

In all fairness to this game, the career mode is actually really well done. Long gone is the boring system of going form race to race and just following a progress bar that you see slowly fill up until its complete and the game is over. There is much more flavor here and I found it to be a very refreshing change of pace. With the fictional World Racing Series (WRS) taking off, the player assumed the role of a driver who must travel the world and drum up support and business for this new event.

With custom ESPN visuals that ground this in reality, Grid 2 does very well in making sure you are engaged at all times and that you really feel like this is a story that’s going somewhere. No longer are you simply rinse and repeat racing but instead, you are working towards something. It may not sound like much, but it’s a welcome change that added a lot to the title.
