GRID when got released back in 2008, managed to “destroy” EA franchise of NFS.
You may ask why?…Well GRID gave the user a wide spectrum of racing types.
Here i will link to some in-depth analysis about how GRID 2 gameplay, ambience, etc will be.
The original GRID video game from the UK based software developer Codemastersis one of the most underrated racing titles in history. The game was actually the eighth in the TOCA Race Driver series and it released for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 back in 2008.
Even though games such as Forza, Gran Turismo and even Codemasters’ other racing titles: Dirt and F-1 have pushed the envelope visually, I still play the original GRID because of it’s amazing gameplay.
It’s not to say the other aforementioned titles aren’t solid in that regard, but there is something about the handling and action in GRID that keeps me coming back.
The blend of hardcore racer and simulation was what made the game so good. It wasn’t too technical, but it wasn’t too simplistic either.
Finally, after a five-year absence, the series is returning with GRID 2. The screenshotswe’ve seen leading up to release have been stunning and the trailers have been equally exciting.
Release Date: May 28 in North America and May 31 in the UK
Platforms: PC, Steam, Xbox 360 and PS3
