Now Playing - GRID 2 Single Player

Blast around the Red Bull GP circuit in a Scirocco, drift across the mountains of Japan in a Honda S2000, and tear through the streets of Paris in a Veyron in GRID 2's single player campaign.

The game looks stunning. It looks much better than the first one, tracks are more open, less ramming by the AI. The cars look like they handle better than any other racing game they've ever made. I'm looking forward to this game.

It's sad - no cockpit view says that Codemasters have completely lost touch with their fanbase. 5% my arse. If I want a racing game with no cockpit and a more arcadey feel I play NFS or Midnight Club (although even MCLA had a cockpit view!). When I want some more realistic racing action that is still more accessible than a hardcore sim I turn to GRID or DIRT, which I always play in cockpit. Judging by the majority of comments on GRID 2 articles Codies are going to seriously regret this decision.

To hell with cockpit view, WHAT THE HELL HAVE THEY DONE TO THE DRIFTING?!! It looks HORRIFIC! This game will go down in the history of driving games as the worst racing game sequel EVER! Even above TDU2! That one I could at least bare playing. With those driving physics I don't think anyone will touch Grid 2.

No rear view mirrors either! WTF?

No cockpit already sucks, but no rear view mirrors totally kills it.

And no , a "look back" button is no substitute for a rear view mirror.

Why is everyone crying about cockpit view? It's aweful, doesn't bother me that it's gone never use it, it's just a gimmick to me

No cockpit view = no buy from me.  I played on hardest difficulty, no restarts, cockpit view... not anymore. I'm sad that I wont be purchasing.

only 5% use it, is another way of saying,  we are lazy and don't want to do it.  Either that or this is an arcade only game.

I can't believe that not enough people use cockpit view for them not to include it. I use it 100% of the time and won't buy a game that doesn't have it.

Nah you're alright. I loved the first, but I'm not sure about this.... I long for when I can play another Project Gotham.

I am not impressed at all. Also since there is no cockpit view, I know I will not be buying it. I was looking forward to grid 2. However, after hearing the details and now watching this video, I am very disappointed.

When Grid2 was first announced I was super excited!  Now, the more I see the less interested I seem to get...

Problem I find with racing sims is basicly the vast amount of different cars. Once you master one cars attributes you then get in another car which drives totally different and that learning curve comes straight back. If your not a hardcore racing sim player then it can be a bitter experience and it's hard to take enjoyment from basicly being bad on a game. lol

Saying that I do still challenge myself on racing sims but will put my hands up and say I am not the best on them.

Jittery frames and screen-tearing. Not things you want when showing off a racing sim.

Grid 2 doesn't look bad at all, but where's the cockpit view - all racing simulation games need this camera view.

This game will be awful.  GRID 1 had wheel lag and rubber banding.  Arcade bollocks.  Not much hope of Grid2 being any better.

The thing that really bothers me about the grid games is that all the cars look like fast and furious overly done up shopping cart spolier looking crap. If the cars all came with stock exteriors and their was a option to upgrade that would be so much better.

@JangoF-76  Exactly, without cockpit view the feel of the game will be gone, its especially exciting when your windscreen gets busted and you cant see a damn thing !

@AdrianJNYC In a previous video they mentioned that they decided to not put it in the game because in their statistics, nobody runs with that camera, just put it for a little moment and then change it,  people prefer to race with other views, front camera view or full car camera view... so they decided to not put it

@marcheegsr Yea, I agree, I don't like almost every car having a spoiler on the back or whatever those things are called either. lol

Great, and if I wanted to drive a car like your supposed to I'd go drive my car, not pretend to be a race god sat on my sofa, cockpit view for me is only good if you have multiple screens and a wheel and pedals and a racing seat like in an arcade or games con

@percuvius2 @paradoxes I tend to agree, at least that it's only used by 5% of players. Fact is that cockpit view means a lot more work for the dev team.

@Nightrunner0007

sim•u•la•tion (ˌsɪm yəˈleɪ ʃən)

n.

1. imitation or enactment, as of conditions anticipated.

2. the act or process of pretending; feigning.

3. an assumption or imitation of a particular appearance or form; counterfeit.

4. the representation of the behavior or characteristics of one system through the use of another system, esp. using a computer.

In other words, all games are pretend, imaginary, a representation. Some more detailed in realism than others.

My point was, the footage was nasty to watch.

@UseTheForceLuke and when you want to shoot people up, u definitely don't play COD you go outside and do it in real life.....idoit

@UseTheForceLuke You do realise that if I had infinite fuel I would be driving around forever and would never need to play a driving/racing game ever right? Fact of the matter is that fuel prices are horendous and I can't afford to drive my turbo car around as much as I would like to.

@UseTheForceLuke Yes, because driving your car on local roads must be just like racing a supercar around Paris.
