First GRID 2 Gameplay Footage Impresses
Written By
View author's profile

Looks like the wait may have been worth it. Codemasters has released the first footage of GRID 2 and it’s super sexy.

There’s two vids to wrap your eyeballs around, the first of which takes you spinning around California in a head-to-head duel between Mach 1 and Boss Mustangs. The second, meanwhile, takes the action to the streets of Chicago.

Check the vids out below and bear in mind this is still pre-alpha footage. GRID 2 is out next summer. You can read our latest preview here.

Been looking for some game play footage, definitely going to pre-order. Haven't seen a good game from Codemasters other than the F1 series for a while.

Without a cockpit camera, this game won't be anything for me!

@3 That's quite disappointing, i always play in cockpit view on every racing game if it's available I.e Forza. Still looks good though

The sounds are very monotome, no damage by the looks of these videos and no realistic physics in driving/overtaking.. I was looking forward to this game but no buy for me

Seems like a fairly standard racing game.

@5 they probably have those features turned off. Maybe you can turn them on to your liking. For video purposes probably left off.

Remember this is pre-alpha code and we have until next summer for a release. I'm sure they will add the damage physics and in cockpit view and such in time, they just wanted to show the racing. Don't be so quick to be negative.

The cars look like the have way to much grip but its in Alpha stage so I'm not judging it too much. I just want real world circuits, not all this street and forest nonsense.

No cockpit view and the most unrealistic driving physics I've ever seen in a game. Taking a corner in a RWD mustang at 130mph without a hint of skidding, instant braking from 120mph down to 70mph and turning a right angle corner without skidding - ye ok.

It's just an average arcade racer, should not have the Grid name, should of been a new IP. Absolute fail.

@12 They've confirmed a little while ago that this game won't have cockpit view... So either it just doesn't have it, or they wanna 'surprise' everybody when in the end it does have cockpit view. But for now I wouldn't get my hopes up...

Looks like crap! And they trying to convince us that they have developed THIS for more that 4 years? BS! And what about this bonnet view, are they fucking joking on all those people who in rage that they decide to cut off the cockpit camera?! Codemasters are dead for me as a great developers of racing games that they was long time ago! NO COCKPIT VIEW - NO BUY!!!

Geez, have to wade through two advertisements just to watch the videos? I thought this was a .org site and not a .com!

Am I watching the same videos as everyone else. Graphics look very poor.

Amazed at how many people demand cockpit view. I never use it because you do not get realistic feel from force feedback and other feedback you would get in real life so theres no real point. And sorry but cockpit view is not immersive as a result.

From all the comments on here it seems like no-one played the first. Go back and try the first one and youll see the physics and such are similar. Its not meant to be very realistic. Jeez.
