"I'd bet you can take a few more seconds off of your next run"... "Hey FU!" At least say tenths. :) Seconds per lap in racing is huge.
After all my comments about grid2 ,I want to point out one last thing. It would have been such a disaster if the game had a few more seasons? And the second thing is there were very poor in car varieties. It's rediculous the collection to consist of 50 cars or so for such a company as CODEMASTERS.
The damage modeling looks great, but without a real cockpit view, this game is at best a rental for me. I know it's actually uncommon, but that's what it looks like to drive a real car- and I have a hard time driving any other way. Accurate interiors are part of the appeal for me too. I really liked Grid, despite it being very much more in the 'arcade' camp than 'sim'. Give me a true cockpit view and I'd be buying rather than renting it.
Intense, fun and oh so addicting, I'm loving GRiD 2. It's hard to imagine that it's been 5 years since GRiD 1. I like the features of RaceNet, liveroutes and of course being able to upload gameplay to Youtube (something I think we'll see from all games next-gen). Just going through campaign at the moment but I'll be on multiplayer in a month or two.
problem i have with modern racing games is the leveling system eventally sucks all the fun out of the game. "you have unlocked a really fast car ... 20 more laps and an added 30 minutes a race for you!"
My kind of racer. Looks like it ganna be a big years for driving games. With this, Driving club, GT6, Forza and NFS all coming out soon. Ganna pick this up. This review has convinced me, and the physics look brilliant, and the sound amazing.
If you want people to look at stupid ads on your site then put some banners on the top and sides of the page like you did back in the day. But don't expect people to watch a 30 or 40 second commercial just to watch a 1 minute video. For Shame!!
Guys just pause adblocker, don't turn it off. It works.
but still fuck gamespot for blocking the bros who don't wanna waste bandwith on a fucking klondike ad
Hmmm nice, so I can't see any videos now if I don't disable Adblock, it's like releasing a next gen console with no support for second hand games and that needs internet to work. Why the h*** does companies nowadays wants the people to hate them?
Not a bad game for an arcade racer, but I'm somewhat disappointed, the damage is often weird and the career is awful, challenges to get cars, the annoying dude, cant fly into the tempting forest or off the cliff..
I have never been against ads on web sites, but the tracking got so aggressive, I had to block them. You can watch the review on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1aKCbYdmaQ
for those who don't want to disable adblocker, which I say is a stupid move by gamespot, here's the youtube version: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i1aKCbYdmaQ
game not good enough to play but im going to play it because there are no racing games this year 2013
I would expect this sort of behavior from EA, not from you Gamespot. I will not be disabling Adblocker thank you.
This is the best online racing game I've played in many years. It's an absolute blast. The progression system will keep you playing a long time too.
Just got the game...
Why the hell are cars drifting all the time? Wtf is this? Yeah, Pagani Zonda is a huge drifter, sure, also the FWD cars. Slight tap of the controller and the car goes sideways.
And to even suggest that this game is a blend of simulation and arcade is an abomination, there is no simulation component here, sorry.
The game is a joke.
@TheLamaKnows Damage looks great but sometimes its funny
@TheLamaKnows Lol ppl still rent games?
@cireking213 Me too, i cant watch any gamespot videos from 2 or 3 days.Any solution?
@Devilzblood Don't forget gametrailers. Pretty much all they do is video. Hope adblock doesn't get screwed over there too!
Well I stand corrected. Just paused adblock and oh look, Ads all over the page. So what are commercials for then?
@d3nR Yes, there are a ton, some complaining there are too many. lol People will complain about anything.
@warhut which console was that? doesn't sound like either of the next gen consoles i know of
@OB-47 Really? I didn't get an ad at the start of this vid
@Atrax2k8 You're going to fast, it's too realistic for you so called hardcore sim racers and you're not used to it. Slow down well before you get to a turn and that won't happen. Sorry to break it to you but you can't go 120 in a turn in real life and expect not to slide, you'll be lucky if your car doesn't flip over truth be told.
@Joeasdfghjkl @TheLamaKnows Certainly do, sir. I still think it's the only thing keeping devs honestly even trying to make good games. Once you have to buy it sight unseen, can't then resell it if it sucks.....that's a recipe for devs to make crap, knowing it's a sale regardless of how bad a game is because you can't preview it- and can't ditch it later.
@dogman12602 Oh yeah, that is one reason I have loved GT, its their videos!!! I used to like gamespot as well but honestly if this continues I will stop visiting gamespot!!!!
@devastator1991 Name any FWD car that goes sideways when pushed too hard?! Get a clue before you post up crap.
This is NOT a realistic racing physics game, you would know this if you had a licence and any racing experience, but that I expect is still years away for you considering you're probably peeing your pants about having to go to high school next year.
