10 Things You Need to Know About: Grid 2

Racing onto shelves today is the sequel to Codemasters' Racedriver: Grid, returning to the fore with Grid 2.

  1. Returning to the series is the rewind feature, which allows you to reverse time after a major crash and take corners again.
  2. The game features a new separate online racing mode with RaceNet integration.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. It's part arcade racer and part driving simulator, focusing on being forgiving and keeping the player in the game.
  6. Early reviews are all praising the game's detailed graphics and splendid environments.
  7. There's a new game mode where two cars race alongside one another in mountain tracks and any collisions end the race.
  8. Every race and event type available in single player carries across to the multiplayer game.
  9. 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.
  10. 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).
