GRiD 2: An American Dream
One of the popular topics in our company chat is American muscle cars, Yolanda and I can chat for ages about the beauty of the brash American cars while Geoff and Darryn forget how to speak English.
So when this trailer started out and only appeared to feature American muscle cars I couldn’t help but get excited.
It’s a bit of a weird trailer though with very little excitement in it thanks to the monotone narrator, the visuals all look great but they appear out of place with the audio which is strange. The idea seems simple enough though. Some rich guy wants to create a World Series Racing league and he wants you to go around the world finding the best drivers and cars to join his league.
That’s more a story than most racing games get so I’m all good with that.
However everywhere you see a forum post about GRiD 2 the majority of comments follow the pattern that I saw on Neogaf
I know the lack of cockpit is disappointing but nobody is interested in this?
I’ll still try it out but I most likely would have bought it if it had a cockpit mode.
Unless this game is 100% incredible I’m passing. Cockpit view is one of my very few gaming dealbreakers for racing games of this ilk.
I’m looking forward to it but yes, the lack of cockpit is really killing this for me.
I hope Codemasters is listening as the lack of cockpit really is a strange choice for a racing title in 2013
