The graphics in menus and on the decals of the car look like they are 240p at best but the rest of the car looks good with good reflections.

I thought there was a good sim coming out this year that was realistic. I don't know why gran truisms or forza are not on pc. They need to be!

Every corner DOES feel the same. After a few days I can safely say the game sucks. Its EXTREMELY ANNOYING WITH THE BIG RED FANS BANNER and a total arcade letdown...trufeel my butt. I want my $ back.

It is essentially a rebadged version of ShowDown...it's OK but feels same old within the first half hour.

Project CARS is amazing, i signed up to the Pre Alpha about a year ago, its coming on so nicely! Its very much like Forza / GT5 with Crysis 3 graphics! Shame you can't sign up anymore for testing. RaceRoom Experience is also a great sim but DLC is very expensive. Once you have bought a couple of tracks and cars, it really starts to shine though.

Here's some screenshots i've taken recently of Project CARs on my rig:

I was going to sign up to pj2 and I had to go away for work then there was no more pre alpha. Damn.

What else is there?
post #116 of 165
This game is utterly boring, I played it for 15 min and quit. They made little to no improvements, they actually went backwards on this one lol.

Well i just played another half hour and its really boring. I have played for around 2 hours in total, still haven't done a single race with more than 1 lap, every event seems to just be 3 re runs of the same thing, every corner in any car is a drift, bonnet view feels clunky and graphics still remind me of games from about 4 years ago. It doesnt feel immesive in any element and im bored already frown.gif Gutted, i have been looking forward to GRID 2 for quite some time!

No wonder they were doing such a good Pre order deal frown.gif

Hi Guys

I agree they have gone backwards on a couple of things, but IF (and I suppose that's a big if) Codemasters listen to feedback, they can just re-enable the options that were in Grid 1 to further tune the driving experience.

There are 3 camps of online players, Skill drivers who don't want the annoyance of an unskilled driver blocking the road with a disabled car. Drivers who do it for fun and enjoy the risk of writing off their car, which does contribute to driving more carefully anyway, and thirdly the bang crashers who just pull the go fast trigger and scream call of duty style things at their screen.

Grid 1 had a solution for all 3 online types that did work fairly well.

to summarise

Quit the respawn after smashing into a wall rubbish, or make it an option to turn it on or off.
Re-Add the 3rd collisions option of Forward (which is what the current setup is) and make OFF and ON mean what they meant before.

Easy done
easy fixed, and I have heard that people who stick with the game find that handling changes/gets better with upgrades etc down the line.

Failing the fixes, I can set up grid 1 games on Tunngle smile.gif

Agree completely. Grid 2 seems to lack a soul. It's so forgettable -- even for an arcade racer it is below average.

Sadly I am in this same boat. Thanks to you guys, I am starting to regret this purchase. I will be playing more and hopefully it changes...
