Racing onto shelves today is the sequel to Codemasters' Racedriver: Grid, returning to the fore with Grid 2.
- Returning to the series is the rewind feature, which allows you to reverse time after a major crash and take corners again.
- The game features a new separate online racing mode with RaceNet integration.
- New to the series is 'Live Routes', a game mode which blends several tracks from the same inner-city environment (like Miami or Dubai) and randomly attaches different sections together, making sure that you'll never know what to expect next.
- The roster of cars is a hand-picked set which is designed to represent the best of the best, rather than an all-inclusive list.
- It's part arcade racer and part driving simulator, focusing on being forgiving and keeping the player in the game.
- Early reviews are all praising the game's detailed graphics and splendid environments.
- There's a new game mode where two cars race alongside one another in mountain tracks and any collisions end the race.
- Every race and event type available in single player carries across to the multiplayer game.
- Grid 2's current Metacritic score is hovering around 80, putting it a few feet in front of Codemasters' Dirt: Showdown, but a few feet behind the exemplary Dirt 3.
- The game is out today on PS3 and 360 (AUD$89.95 or NZD$99.95) and PC (AUD$79.95 or NZD$89.95).
