Grid 2 is an upcoming racing game developed by Codemasters for Xbox 360, Playstation 3, and PC platforms. Like its predecessor, it is said to toe the line between arcade and simulation. Chief among the new features of Grid 2 is a handling model called TrueFeel, which is based on real-world specs and driving characteristics, yet fine-tuned to make it more accessible. The game doesn’t have driver assists anymore, but it is still a lot easier to master compared to a full-on simulator.
