madnosmadnos Member Posts: 84

For some reason Grid was one of my favorite racers.

 Grid2 was released today I believe . Just wondering if anyone has picked it up.

If you did ,any thoughts ?  As to the original , worth the price , things like that.

Thanks

    wait for metacritic reviews.

     

    sequels usually are poor.

     

    very long ago a game called Majesty. awesome. recently, majesty 2. not bad. not as good but ... still good. expansion. better than majesty 2. next expansion. a bit silly but still good stuff. final expansion...YUCK. I had to have it, I had to beat it, because I have and beat all the others. but YUCK. bugs, bad gameplay, bad additions, pointless stuff...yuck. Not terrible-terrible but some game-breaking design problems and bugs here and there. basically...'rushed'. took power of will and sense of completion to beat it. were it the first game in series i'd have stopped long before beating it. glad i beat it...glad i dont have to play it again.

     

    sequels can be amazing or really really bad. rarely in between. best NOT to buy at release and give a few days for reviews.

     

    true for all games.

     

    for very good games i'll buy the sequel just because "hey, you did great once, i'll throw money at you, why not". GTA falls here. For other games where they didnt really establish a strong franchise yet i'd advice caution.

    The few opinions on it I've heard say it's just better than Grid 1, but I haven't had a chance to try it myself. Hoping to grab it off Steam within the next month, as I'm actually pretty excited for the local split screen =)

    DX9 on PC isn't support though, so make sure to have at least a DX10 card. Probably do, but just wanna throw that out there ^^

    Reviews are averaging about 8/10, so looks good

    The Steam price does not seem too bad, if you preorder you get all DLC +Grid 2 + Grid for £26.99, whereas after released it will be £29.99 just for Grid 2 + you have to pay for the DLC all costing a total of £16.96. So buy now within about 37 hours for £26.99 for all of it or buy after that and pay £29.99 for just the game to £46.95 for all of it, also without Grid 1 then that is £56.94

    Hey guys :)

    First ,Thanks for the responses :)

    Actually , I've been following it on Steam for the past couple weeks. Just watching the  Pre-order bonus sales to see if it would open all  the DLC>, for purchasing.

    Unfortunately , I do not pre-order anything anymore . (thats a whole different animal there ).

    But  If the game is well received , I have no problem paying for the DLC .

    @ Kaij , Thanks for the heads up on the card . Good to go :)

    Quick look ;

    CON:

    - terrible graphics (textures, environments)

    - terrible gameplay in general

    - many loading screens (change car = mini loading "screen")

    - Cars at GT2 Polycount Level

    - terrible tracks (all those fantasy ones)

    - harder difficulty seems not to help (same cr-p as medium)

    - fullscreen bug (alt+tab to desktop = restart the game)

    - terrible menus

    - overall the impression is = terrible for a 60$? product, i´d rather play Shift 2 or Motor Toon Grand Prix

    - and it goes on and on.... just blargh!

    PRO:

    - better Engine sounds than Gran Turismo

    - runs on Android Phones and Playstation 1 (2560 by 1600 at 4xAA/HIGH/Ultra ~ 40-55 fps 6870)

     

    Don´t buy it.

    It has online DRM like Sim City 5. Granted it does have a singleplayer feature, but it is very very basic. All the meat of the game is online only. You can't progress, earn money, buy cars or anything in singleplayer. Its all multiplayer.

    My Skyrim, Fallout 4, Starbound and WoW + other game mods at MODDB:

    I hadn't heard that, and it's a bit of a bummer to actually.
