THE ROUNDUP

Imagine the most extreme and expensive hyper-cars the world has to offer all stacked together in your garage just waiting to be unleashed on the track.

“Grid 2” is a racing game that takes cars from all around the world and pits them against each other in races that range from simple circuits to heated street races.

The gameplay is amusing and the graphics are stunning.

Though it may be difficult to control some cars, once you get the hang of it there is nothing better than driving a clean lap, flat out.

Of course, there are some issues with the game.

One issue that during races you can rewind so that if you crash it doesn’t matter, you can just go back to before the crash and fix it.

This is a great addition to the game, but you only get five per race.

This became very troubling because multiple times I would almost finish with a perfect race and then crash on the last lap with no more rewinds.

Another issue is that you cannot drive any car you want at any time for fun.

To race with all of the cars you need to unlock all of the cars, and that takes a monumental amount of time.

You could just buy all of the cars, but who would waste a lot of money on virtual cars?

This game is incredibly fun and, although difficult, very rewarding when mastered. But some things could be made better such as free play and rewinds.

“Grid 2” is available on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC.
