Grid 1 is better... sadly. Avoid this game. Wasted $45 on a lemon. I'll play with you all in it, but I can't adjust my steering, throttle, break, or deadzones using a keyboard. Thanks for a crappy release Code Master.

Here's a review to back it up:
GRID 2 Review

Quote :
Now I know for sure. Grid 2 is a radical, over-simplified departure from everything that made the original Grid a fantastic arcade racer, and virtually none of the design choices should have made it past early brainstorming sessions. While the game itself is quite polished for what it is, and the driving model is a fantastic balance between approachable and intuitive, the game constantly fails to impress during key moments, and is only a mere shadow of what it could have been.

In fact, I've just asked Steam for a refund on this pre-order. Its that bad, people. Its pretty, but the driving is terrible.

I would agree that it's not as good as the original. I didn't have any problems at all adjusting to the new handling, however.

O no! I had high hopes for this game.

I've posted many requests for help and finally gave up last night. There is no feasible way to modify the controls sensitivity for keyboard drivers. You're forced to use their presets. You can modify it only for acceptable/supported steering wheels.

I've only played GRID2 one night, but I like the cars and the tracks.

Not had any such issues. If anything my controls are not sensitive enough.

And that's the problem.... They don't allow the users to fix their settings for keyboard drivers; forcing you to play with one set configuration which was never a problem in the previous games. Instead of allowing users customization to match their needs and desired configurations; they forced a set down your throat that you now have to deal with or quit playing.

I did the latter. Wish I could get my money back.

Having now played it halfway through the single player I really cannot find a fault with how the handling is set up. It took a little getting used to but it was not a problem after six or seven races.

I'm not willing to adapt to their settings to play their way because then it screws me up in all the other games.

The development screwed up their build, does not make it my problem, but theirs.

Wish I could vote with my money and get it back; unfortunately, its locked because I "pre-ordered."

This is the last time I let any gaming company burn me. I'll wait for a few months after release from now on for any games.
