TopGear UK is a great show. I used to not get cars, and why people like them so much, before I watched that show. Now, I'd say I'm a bit of a petrol head. It's also cool that the Stig is a bit like a race car driver version of Batman.

I don't much like the US show though. It's just to much like the UK version. It'd be nice if it had more of it's own personality, if you know what I mean.

Grid 2 should be much better than the first one. The first one had too many narrow tracks, stupid AI, boring driving mechanics, too much of the same tracks over and over and over and over, etc...

I don't get that. there wre games that forced you into cockpit view. that was purity racing.

I love cockpit view... I really wish they didn't remove it for GRID 2

Cant believe so few people use the cockpit view. That's what it looks like to drive a real car, I find it really difficult to drive accurately with any other view. Plus, it's just more immersive that way. 

Glad to know early that Grid 2 lacks them. That one point pretty much ruins the game for me.

I always end up losing interest in racing games.  However, I think it's a ME problem.

First game ive played with the flashback system was S.C.A.R. or squadra corsa alfa romeo, way before grid came out  


Grid is awesome btw, except for the last races that werent all that fun and really quite difficult

It's the only game disc I've ever snapped in half and tossed in the garbage, literally.

The documentary "Senna" really was one of the best racing docs out there and Ayrton was and still is one the best drivers to date. Perfect combination of balls and talent.

Top Gear still is a car show. I love the format. Car review, Challenge, and star in a reasonably priced car.

they should make a simulation sequel of Toca race driver 3

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.

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.

Did you know you can wash your car in Grid 1 ?

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.

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

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.

@devastator1991 Operative word being "should".  Instead, after you play it - you'll feel like someone kicked your favorite toy down the street, then returned it to you (dents, scratches, and all) and told you it was a new, updated version of same toy.

@devastator1991 Grid 2 doesn't even have a cockpit view. That's a fail in and of itself.

@AverageGameJoe I installed TRD 3 yesterday and I astonished because it supports full HD and also Xbox 360 controller. Yes they should consider making a sequel to this one

@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.

@crazylooser2003

In this case it just means a game that was overlooked by the community.  Not that the quality is 2nd rate.

@crazylooser2003 they explained at the start of the video that it wasnt just b-list games, in this case a game that was pretty well overlooked.

@niq511 @TheLamaKnows it's just how a real car is driven, so it comes rather naturally for me to use cockpit view. In games like Forza with accurate interiors, it seems a waste to never see them. For drifting, it's usually easier to be outside of the car because you lack that feel of grip breaking that you would have in real life- so I can see it there. Otherwise, I vastly prefer to see my driver's seat view

@crazylooser2003 these ones, dirt 3 was more focused on ken block, and the first one was just a generic rally game
