Looking Forward to when this drops, great time with the first title.

Agreed, I played the first one loads, especially online touring cars. The in car view thing is a bit of a dud, hopefully they will at least have a bonnet cam otherwise I will be sad :(

Honestly, this sucks.
I love driving from cockpit view.

BanBrother1988d ago

Same. Even before cockpit views, I always had it in '1st person'. When more games starting using cockpit views, I was extremely happy. I always drive in it.

UnholyLight1988d ago

I totally agree. Almost always drive in cockpit view, it doesn't make sense to make a racing game without a freakin cockpit view!! Probably won't even buy this game now

As awesome as cockpit view is (I prefer to use it), You do gain an advantage and it makes the game easier to use the 3rd person/car view.

Just bought GRiD on the 360 marketplace for $9.99. Thought I'd give it another spin before GRiD2 drops. The cockpit view in GRiD is punishing, as you hit another vehicle the window cracks limiting your view. It is one of the games that I have actually gone back to 3rd persion view, because of that.

@ creeping judas

yea, but that's part of the immersion and excitement for many other GRID players. It makes it more of a challenge to race with precision and avoid the temptation to bounce off other cars to make a pass.

Just another reason why Codemaster's shoulda left the cockpit cam in the game.. that way players who still want to use it have the option, and those who preferr third person or the bumper cam have the option as well.
