    Coming out on 31st May.
    This is a "must buy" for me . The only question is what format shall I get it on. Although It'll look better on PC , I'll probably go with the majority on here and get it on PS3 as I asume most SNRs will be getting the Playstation version.

    Amazon have the Limited edition at £37.99 (console) and £29.99 (Pc).
    If anyone sees a bettter pre order price please pop it on here.

    Amazon Exclusive Pre-order Edition


    Indycar Racing

    Includes the iconic Indianapolis Motor Speedway & Dallara IndyCar!
    Containing 2 routes at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway (not available in the standard game), the exclusive Dallara IndyCar and the IndyCar Pace car, both available in single race and multiplayer, plus a special online event.
    GTR Racing

    Includes YAS Marina Track at daytime & Nissan GT-R SpecV
    Containing 5 routes at the YAS Marina Circuit at daytime (not available in the standard game), the exclusive Nissan GT-R SpecV road car, both available in single race and multiplayer, plus a special online event.
    Game Intro

GRID®2™ will raise the gameplay and technological bar for motorsport gaming whilst remaining true to the series' core value that sets it apart from the competition – it’s all about the race.

    Players will be invited to be fast, be first and be famous as they feel the aggressive exhilaration that lies at the heart of the GRID racing experience. In career mode, players will journey to the top of a new, ever-evolving world of competitive motorsport that challenges players to perform in exhilarating events across three continents.

    I wont be getting it. Unless it plays like GT5, which it wont. Im not saying GT5 is the be and end all of racing games, but for me it is.

    I didnt like Dirt or any of the NFS or Burnout titles they all felt a bit "arcadey" They probably did what they were supposed to very well but they just wernt for me.

    Must buy for me too, loved the first GRID. I just hope Codemasters won't turn off the online servers as soon as they did with 1.
    I won't get it on release day though.

    If I had plenty of money to throw around I would be getting this, it'll piss on both GT5 and NFS:MW from a great height, the first GRID game still puts those two to shame.

    But I don't, I won't be buying any new games between now and BF4 so that I can save up to get a next gen system in place to run BF4 on.

    I have played all the codemasters racing games from the original Toca, (apart from dirt showdown) so I guess I will be buying this one to, as I have enjoyed all the previous ones.

    Its early days, but it sounds as if this isn't going to be very popular with the SNRs . So I think i'll stick with the lower priced and graphically better PC version, which I've seen for £26.98 at my new favorite online retailers, ZAVVI.

    Nice new video out showing some of the cars in Europe, but are the brummie codemaster devs having a laugh with one the race team names?

    Its looking like a pretty irrisistable game though.

    Are there still no others getting it on PC?
    The reason I want the PC version is that its only £26.99, my racing wheel / seat work and the graphics will be a lot better than console. Only a week away and getting a bit excited about getting my first real racing game for my PC. I've also a week off in the middle of June, so plenty of time to play it.:D

    I will need to play a demo of this before I consider a purchase. No interior view and most probably NFS style physics mean I'm not holding my breath....

    That is probably what would sway me into getting it or not (a demo ) especially as GT6 is on the horizon.

    The devs say that so few people use interior view that they can make the game run better without it. I only use bzmper or bonnet cam. Grid one handled very well as do all other codemaster racing games.
    Just hoping they have a vast amount of real tracks.

    I'll be limiting my release day purchases to one game only this year. And Grid 2 isn't it, but I'll buy this when it becomes cheaper. Let's hope they don't turn off the servers too soon.
