Rockstar is promising that the latest instalment in the Grand Theft Auto series will be better than all of the previous GTAs combined plus the highly acclaimed Red Dead Redemption.

T3 say “Previews suggest all the gags, guns, glamour and grit we love, but with a more refined Uncharted-style combat system, a Breaking Bad- meets- The Hangover buddy dynamic and ever more elaborate set pieces, from sky dives to bank heists.”

Grid 2

Race Driver – Grid set the bar for precision racing five years ago, but can they do it again with Grid 2?

Games Radar seem to think so:

“”The most important racer of this generation“. That’s what we called the original GRID recently. Can you imagine how good a game could be if the team that created it was given four whole years to make a sequel? No pressure, no deadlines… just developing a game in tandem with the technology that was already incredible near the start of this console generation. Can you imagine that?”
