Following on from Wednesday’s announcement of GRID 2 here’s a rundown of some things you may have missed:
Gamesradar – “This has the potential to be the best racing game of the generation, perhaps ever.”
Eurogamer – “It’s clearly a fine sequel that preserves the spirit of a respect game, and it seems to be toeing that delicate line between simulation and arcade racing with as much grace as anything since PGR’s demise”
PlayStation Official Magazine – “There’s already enough evidence here that GRID 2 will live up to the hopes of those who still claim its predecessor is PlayStation’s finest racer – and attract plenty of new admirers at the same time.”
GameTrailers – “It’s already looking phenomenal. Really, really gorgeous environments, it’s running rock solid and the cars are handling very well.”
CVG – “It’s the delicate fine-tuning that makes GRID 2 purr. The driver AI in particular catches the eye - the CPU drivers each boast three attributes from a pool of 60 which individualise them from the pack – these attributes range from aggression to precision, from reactive speed to their cornering ability.”
The Sixth Axis– “It’s back, and it’s bigger and better than you might have hoped for.”
Digital Spy – “Swapping paint becomes a guilty pleasure again as car bodies crumple and bonnets fly, and the enhanced physics are genuinely noticeable even to the casual observer.”
The Huffington Post – “The GRID 2 team is not afraid to make choice about what to put in the game and the reason I am bothering to write about this is that Codemasters have gone the extra mile to put this game at the industry’s cutting edge.”
The Guardian – “What we’ve experienced of it so far bodes phenomenally well. The cars feel much more real than any we’ve ever experienced in a game – and that includes Gran Turismo 5 and especially, Forza, which has always felt as though it was built in a laboratory by robots.”
You’ve been hard at work with the RaceNet unlocks and are making good progress through the tiers. You’ve still got time to get involved so make sure you head on over there.
