RACE AND GEN­DER

EDGE - - PLAY -

Given the furore at E3 over the lack of playable fe­male co-op char­ac­ters in As­sas­sin’s Creed Unity and Far Cry 4, Code­mas­ters chose the right time to rec­tify that other big omis­sion from Grid 2: the op­tion to have your pit crew ad­dress you as a woman. Whether you’ll spend much time en­joy­ing it is an­other mat­ter, how­ever, as their vo­cab­u­lary is so limited you’ll of­ten hear the same com­ment sev­eral times dur­ing a race. You can, at least, gain use­ful in­for­ma­tion on your car’s state, team­mate’s and ri­vals’ po­si­tions, and split times us­ing the D-pad.
