While we wait to get our own hands on Grid 2 due out this week, we thought we'd share this gameplay video review courtesy of our sister Eurogamer network channel Outside Xbox.
While much praise was given to Grid 2's graphical prowess and damage modelling, Outside Xbox criticised its repetitive career mode, limited car selection and lackluster LiveRoutes tracks.
Indeed, reviews for Grid 2 seem decidedly mixed. EDGE awarded it a glowing 9/10 (a rarity for the usually hard-to-please publication) caling it a "dazzling package that can proudly take its place among the best racing games of this generation.", whereas Eurogamer scored it 7/10 declaring that Grid 2 is "a strange backwards step, one that manages to retain some of what made the original great while getting lost in its own peculiar sense of drama and never adding enough worthwhile of its own."
We'll of course be delivering our own verdict on Grid 2 as soon as we can, so stay tuned for more soon.
