GRiD 2 Trailer and Screenshots

A new trailer uses live-action and gameplay footage to show off more of GRiD 2, Codemasters' upcoming racing sequel. This is accompanied by some new screenshots and the following explanation: "The video, part one of a series of three, follows the fortunes of Chris Harris, motoring journalist and regular contributor to YouTube’s DRIVE channel, who has joined together with Codemasters to provide insight into car handling and vehicle selection for the game. In the video, Chris throws his McLaren around the famous circuit in pursuit of McLaren test driver Mat Jackson and uses in-game expertise from GRID 2 and Codemasters staff to gain the advantage. The video shows how Brands Hatch is created in-game and features stunning real life footage of the stunning McLarens power-sliding around some of the most iconic corners in racing, and is now playing at www.youtube.com/gridgame."

Exactly. The original GRID had plenty of drifting. Personally I'm fine with it. GRID was more of an arcade racer than a simulator and I'm okay with slightly exaggerated physics if it makes the game more enjoyable.

Since the Forza series I just can't fucking stand figure skating.. er... drifting, and to show off a RACING game with guys in RL drifting is unforgivable.

Agreed. Forza has just the right amount of arcade drifting to complement its physics engine and gameplay.

I enjoyed GRID too, but it just didn't feel right with a wheel, and I ended up completing the game with a 360 pad. Despite the stupendously insightful advise on oversteering in the video, the in-game footage still shows excessive sliding through turns. It is an awfully fast car with limited downforce and likely street rated rubber, but it does seem to be a function of the game and not the car setup.

Codemasters does spread quite a large pool of racing genres, all the way from Dirt Showdown to F1 2012. GRID 2 should be somewhere in the middle, and if anything, leaning towards F1 which is their #1 revenue generator.

I loved Grid, though I never achieved that ultimate goal of having both your driver and your team be #1 in earnings. My team came 1 million dollars short in my best year. (Fuck that one particular team that races in those black cars. I forgot their name, but FUCK THEM!)

It's an awesome game, and I really hope Grid 2 will be just as awesome. If it is, it's a day 1 purchase.

The screenshots (read: renders) and gameplay footage looks like ass, which is ridiculous because the engine is capable of much more based on the previous games alone. I wish they would use high resolution PC footage, rather than low resolution console footage.

I'm looking forward to GRID 2, as I very much enjoyed the original and the DiRT series of games. I just hope there's no gymkhana or any other nonsense like that.
