GRID 2: “Titles Like Gran Turismo Have Different Goals”, No Cockpit View “Was the Best Choice”

"Continuing our interview with GRID 2 producer Iain Smith, we asked him about the realism of the upcoming racer, and how it was set apart from the likes of Gran Turismo and Need for Speed Most Wanted. Smith stated that, “Firstly, I think titles like Gran Turismo are setting out with different goals to ours. With GRID 2, the intention is to bring the sense of drama, tension and speed of racing to the player. We try to evoke this by any means possible in the game." (GRID 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

They confirmed it before, it was a sacrifice made due to console limitations.

@ decrypt

No decrypt, these guys are full of sh^t first they said it was because no one was using it from what their online data showed...

Then when that pissed all the true fans of the game off, they changed it to this bullsh^t

Console Limitations... - A.k.a - Lazy ass developers cutting corners because they just want to get something out quick to make a fast buck.... and cockpit view would take too much work and effort...

Please console limitations my ass, why does GT5 a game that looks ten times better then this have cockpit view, why does Dirt 3, F1 2012, all have cockpit view...

I'll tell you why, because they didn't half a$$ their game to make a quick buck off of gamers...

Do yourself a favor and keep your eye out for Project C.A.R.S that's a game that will actually be worth your money..

No Cockpit view = RC car sim

There's a reason why the first person mod on GTA IV makes the game 10x more immersive just by changing the camera position.

I'll not buy this game because they didnt include cockpit view. Best choice indeed.

With or without cockpit view, the original GRID was easily one of the best racers of the last several years.
GRID 2, if it is of the same consistent quality, will be a fantastic game and I'm not going to whine over the lack of cockpit view.
Though I do understand that is an important feature for some.

I'm with you on that one. If it were a simulator then I could understand the moaning re: lack of cockpit view. This is a definite must buy for me but will wait to see which console version performs and looks better. GRID was great but some screen tearing and jaggies tarnished the overall experience for me.

gran turismos goal has been to always be the best racing sim, and it always succeeds , grid is an incredibility fun racer with its different style of gameplay, i cant see them making a sim. but if they want to, more power to them, ill check it out

"Gran Turismos' goal has been to always be the best DRIVING sim"

just thought i'd correct that one piece of information. someone can correct me if i'm wrong but GT is a driving sim not a racing sim, like forza, there's a difference.

i hope it didn't come out wrong in that GT can't do racing sim because that's not what i'm saying and i really don't mean to say it

no cockpit view....I'm out....no thanks.
The_KELRaTH  +   838d ago
No cockpit view, no pitstops, no tire wear, no refuelling, no rain, no Destruction Derby...

BUT... there is the "lets really hype about a fantastic new mode" async racing where can race on your own and get your laptime on the leaderboard - known in ever other racing game as Time Trial!!

And all this is because they took note of their customer base!!!

Im sure the pc version will eventually have a cockpit mod.
BuffMordecai  +   838d ago
More like no cockpit was the lazy choice.

I can live without a cockpit view in a arcade sim racer.
