Gird Your Loins For GRID 2

I haven't played a car game for aaaaages. Much like my real-world driving, I've always been rubbish at them but secretly enjoyed them, and Codemasters' original GRID, with its subtle silliness and invaluable rewind mechanic, very much hit the sweetspot of pandering to incompetence without chucking out all vestiges of believability. I'll probably be driving into walls and accelerating into rather than out of corners in the upcoming sequel, which we now have in-game footage of to look at.

Looks reasonably flashy - maybe not epically so, but perhaps that's just because they're not running the game on the triple-SLI GeForce Titan systems every RPS reader but you has. Do keep up. The outdoor tracks look extra-nice, though, and I really dug the Yankee-Doodle livery on show in the first race there.

Quite tasty generally, I think. I feel the need for a racing game that isn't called Need For Speed. Not to long wait, fortunately - GRID 2's out in May.
