GRID 2 offers a very varied gameplay. As previously discussed, you as a player can complete various racing modes from circuit races to street races.

There is an Overtake event which aims to race as many AI cars as possible. With this mode, you can casually race AI cars but you have to be careful because these AI have a tendency to crash their cars into yours.

In addition, there is a global event that you can complete every week. The game developer offers a global event of 9 missions for you to complete. After that, you will get various prizes.

This game also offers a main mission called career mode. Through career mode, you will get fans and enjoy cutscenes with quite a unique story.

The more you win races, the more fans you will get and the more new tracks you can follow.

The cars that you can use for racing are also very varied. GRID 2 offers a wide selection of cars with a range of up to four centuries. You can use these various cars to complete existing missions.

After that, the handling of this game is supported by a system called TrueFeel. The system is called TrueFeel by the developers Codemasters that offers a balance between reality and accessibility for players.

Unfortunately, there is no option for a first person view that looks directly at the dashboard or steering wheel. This is one of the weaknesses in this racing game, because usually racing games have the option to race with a first person view.

Prior to the deletion from Steam, Codemasters as a developer provided various copies of GRID 2 for free. This is the last attempt to make GRID 2 memorable for lovers of car racing games.

Even though it was removed from Steam, players who already owned GRID 2 prior to the deletion from Steam can still play the game.
