To me, it's better. Cornering is abit tricky even if you use the lines to guide you through the tracks. AI is definitely aggressive when trying to go for a lead position but to me that's a good thing. That means that the AI wants you to work to take the top spots.

Wait, wait, wait. Why is cockpit view so blurry? Wasn't the whole point of this re-release or whatever they call this suppose to give us cockpit view? This blurry garbage is terrible. You can't see the dials and even you steering wheel is blurred out.

Man that is a carbon copy of a Grid 1 track! I've just finished GRID 1, man it was a terrible game. 

The steering and damage mechanics were HORRIBLE, like literally no physics simulation at all in the game. 

Not to mention when you want to rewind it puts you into a full speed cinematic replay each time so you often end up missing the point you wanted to start at with a camera angle which is no use what so ever in telling you where you are on the track.

Putting 12 Koenigseggs in a tiny street circuit as well was simply pathetic. 

I was SO frustrated with it when I'd finished. Then I started Forza Horizon and remembered what it actually feels like to drive a car again.

I'm at Season 4 already on the game and I really like it so far. Done the Touring and Street disciplines and next on my list is Open Wheels. The blurry vision on the cockpit view is useless and not worth trying. The game looks really good on the 360 and plays better than what Gamespot reviewed it for. My only downside with this game is no garage to store multiple cars (but then again, it's a Grid game) and braking at high speed could be somewhat stronger and better. To me, it's like a mix of Grid and Need for Speed: Shift.

I loved the original GRID, the sequel though was a MESS, hopfully this one brings the series back to where it should be.

I guess it looks a bit better in real, but with quality of this video, it looks exactly like original Grid. The track looks very unchanged, too. Lazy, lazy, lazy...

Wow! I am so glad I didn't buy this game. Looks exactly like Grid 2 and that cockpit view is just a blurred bitmap. Not looking for an ultra-realistic cockpit view but I mean come on!

A cockpit view? I guess they learned a lession with Grid 2 and the rage gamers gave them for not including it in the game. Plus, the reason for that decision was just ridiculous and an insult to gamers and other developers who achieved much more on same platforms.

Also, I hope they fixed the insane overster you would get from any car doing any speed. Yeah, a FWD VW Golf oversteers like crazy...sure.

That's what happens when these guys make games a two year old wants to play.

@praneet1 You probably won't notice stuff like that all that much when you are flying around a corner though so I wouldn't worry.

@Dannystaples14 I agree with that. But looking at the car dynamics and the level design, it still looks like Grid 2. Grid 2 was nothing like the first Grid that came out years ago. I still consider the first Grid to be the perfect racing game with the right mix of arcade and simulation.
