GRID 2 then, the sequel to Race Driver: GRID – holy cow, that was released in 2008… It doesn’t seem that long ago. Maybe I’ve been used to seeing so many DIRT games also released by Codemasters that they’re mentally blurring into one in my mind.
That said, GRID 2 is a pretty decent racing game that represents an enjoyable third way, between hardcore simulations such as Gran Turismo 5 and pure arcade racers such as the Burnout series. This middle ground isn’t a new phenomenon. Late last year we had the excellent Forza Horizon that attempted to meld open-world road racing, with the authentic sim heart of Forza 4.
