GRID 2 is a racing video game developed and released by Codemasters for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3, and it is the sequel to Race Driver: Grid, also known as GRID.
Grid 2 features the same gameplay elements that defined its predecessor, such as the rewind system or the unique visuals, but some of them have been improved.
For example, the AI reacts to the players driving style, becoming more aggressive and changing tactics to adapt during a race.
A new handling system called TrueFeel has been introduced, but the cockpit view has been removed entirely. The video game takes place in various real life locations from three continents, and it features an extensive list of cars, which includes some iconic vehicles from four decades.
There are many customization and upgrades options available, allowing players to create their own unique cars. The cars in GRID 2 are divided in four main Tiers, each with a vast number of types and brands.
The method to unlock them in the World Series Racing mode (the single-player mode) is different from the one in the Online mode (multiplayer mode).
In multiplayer, there is a leveling system through which players can unlock more GRID 2 Cars.
However, once a car is unlocked players must earn enough money to buy it, or they can use the funds to purchase new upgrades. The upgrades are important because they can be used to change a cars tier, which may prove cheaper than buying another car.
In the singleplayer mode, more GRID 2 Cars can be unlocked by progressing through the game, meaning that they become available at certain points in a career, but they also need to be unlocked via vehicle challenges, since the game offers players this choice from time to time.
As an extra, GRID 2 features four preorder packs that include special cars, new tracks and and bonuses.
In Grid 2, there are a several achievements/trophies that are related to specific cars and they can be unlocked only if they are attempted using the required vehicle.
