Grid wasn't perfect but I consider it to be the best racing game on PC. It's the game me and my cousin compare all other race games to when deciding how good they are. I think I'll pass on Grid 2 because it looks much more arcadey.
The B-List - Grid

No racing line in this game (only that little blip in the lower left corner) which isn't bad. I'm surprised at how good this looks. I last played it a year ago or so and I thought it looked primitive at the time.
I won't miss cockpit view. Only Shift 1 & 2 did it right--it's looks herky-jerky with ugly looking arms and poor screen space organization in Grid 1 and most other racing games.
BTW, Grid 2 will have no Ferraris, Lamborghinis, or Porsches along with very few real world tracks.
Looks great as usual,after all its code masters which is guaranteed satisfaction, my only neglect is that it could have a longer career mode.
Played Grid for the first time yesterday since it was free with Grid 2, and was very surprised at how great it is
My opinion on lack of cockpit view in Grid 2: The 5-6% of players who use cockpit view are generally the ones who keep playing game well after the 94-95% percent have quit. I always use cockpit view in racing games and I am still playing Forza 4 after over a year. By not including cockpit view, Codemasters is alienating its core players.
@LogicSavanT I've put an insane amount of hours into Grid and Dirt and I never used cockpit view. Always used hood cam. My screen is kinda small so it really doesnt feel right. I wish people would stop going on about it.
@LogicSavanT hopefully they still have the hood camera. I used to use cockpit all the time until I bought a racing wheel. Now I need every advantage I can get like the better visibility of a hood camera.
Will still miss the cockpit view as I do use it from time to time.
@LogicSavanT I agree been thinking along similar lines.
Hold on, what Colin McRae 3 you guys were talking about??? Like the old ones? Or the new Dirt? Because the new Dirt does not deserve Colin's name on it...besides the first one

@crazylooser2003 these ones, dirt 3 was more focused on ken block, and the first one was just a generic rally game
This was a great game. Not exactly simulation racer like Forza or Gran Turismo. But still a great arcade racer for those who like that sort of thing.
Danny O'Dwyer poping up everywhere! Good stuff, deserves everything he can get. Best person on all of G-Spot.
