Grid 2 Preview | Machinima

Machinima: "GRID 2 is less about actually ‘simulating’ racing (in a dry, niggly, technical sense) than it is about the sheer dramatic, engaging fun of a total-immersion racing experience—one that aims to capture not only the character of the various cars and the nuances of how they handle, but the oil-rags-to-riches thrill of moving up from the status of unknown driver to that of world-famous motor-sports superstar." (GRID 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

No cockpit view = must buy to Gamefly.
Codemasters is following the rest of the industry going the smash and grab route. What a shame. They are one of my all time favorite racing devs. I had a bad feeling after Showdown. Now here we go 2 games in a row. If DIRT 4 doesn't have a cockpit view I'm gonna kick my dog.

Its not a simulator, who cares if it doesnt have a cockpit view.

A view has nothing to do with sim vs arcade but the added level of immersion you get while playing the game. Dirt, Shift, Horizon, PGR and the original GRID has/had a cockpit view.

It's my preferred view for all racing games regardless of the level of realism. As it is with most wheel users.

They took out cockpit veiw to develop in other areas of the game. To some that might sound like rushing a game. The game will do well either way.

How can it be rushing when GRID was released 2008? Personally I think they tried to up the ante with the graphics and they couldn't maintain a continual frame rate from inside the cockpit so they dropped it. Inside the cockpit is the most demanding view. If Codemasters were honest they would admit that was the real reason it was dropped and not come up with deferring rhetoric.

"added features"

Name on thing that is added.

I've played every codies game since TOCA 1, EVERY and now they have gone to complete garbage.

Namely thanks to consoles, Console games have seriously ruined pretty much every format of gaming due to being rushed and just trying to garner sales.

I really look forward to the market crash because then the games will drop out of being multi million dollar budgets back to a couple thousand with people working in there free time on them.
