Grid 2

I played this for the first time this morning – it’s currently free if you’re a PlayStation Plus member – and man, was I ever having trouble driving, probably due to the fact that all my racing of late has been in Need for Speed Rivals, which is very arcade-y in the way it plays. Here, it’s more sim-like, but not to the extent that Forza or Gran Turismo is, so I’m having trouble finding the balance between speed and taking it easy on curves and tight corners. It also felt really shitty to play the opening race of the game – it just throws you in immediately on start – and after having a miserable run and coming in dead last, being told I was amazing. I now have a better handle on things though, and have won some races. This is my first Grid experience, but I’m a big fan of Codemasters’ Dirt series. Graphics look good too, although now that I’m playing racing games on PS4, it just can’t compete.
