GRID 2 Trailer

This trailer introduces LiveRoutes, a feature in GRID 2 that will switch the tracks in the game's city environments dynamically in the upcoming racing sequel, offering a test of racers' reflexes. "LiveRoutes is the new challenge event that weíre most proud of in GRID 2. Itís as fresh to racing games as Flashback was when we introduced it as a mechanic in the original GRID," said Clive Moody, Senior Executive Producer for GRID 2 at Codemasters. "In a LiveRoutes event, you donít know whatís coming next and it turns each race into a test of your racecraft, car handling and reactions on circuits that cannot be learnt. In both career mode and online, LiveRoutes offers near limitless possibilities in every race and itís a great leveler, even for the most experienced racing game players." Here's word on the video: "The new LiveRoutes video shows how the road changes ahead dynamically on different playthroughs, creating new routes through GRID 2ís Paris Street Racing environment. Available in both single-player and in multiplayer, LiveRoutes events feature millions of potential corner combinations and offer players extensive replayability."

Videos I have seen make it look loke this will be a lot twitchier gameplay wise then the first one was.

In what way?
In a way that you have to start turn into corners before you can even see them, the car is going so fast the rewind feature is a must, you need to know when and where the turns are coming up or you either crash your car or you slow down so much the other cars will just blow right by you.
It is just all twitchy to the point where it is not enjoyable anymore.
I've loved Grid 1 and the demo derby mode was amazing amount of fun, but those city tracks with the twists and turns and blind corners drove me nuts!
Again I might get this game because I like Codies race games for the most part, but the dynamic track changing and the (seems to be) faster gameplay is not a positive feature of the game for me personally.
I don't care about cockpit view as I've always raced in a hood cam view or behind the car cam in drifting events.
