Test Drive Unlimited 2
NOT BAD ... !! ( AVERAGE )
I Bought this game today ( 2/13/2011) and i played for almost 10 hours straight. The game was Not bad.. I mean the Game play is pretty nice and handling is also pretty good. But i Think the graphics should be little bit better. And the Map Is Huuuuuuuuuuuuugeeeeeeeeeeeee . Good Cars , Has ton of Ferraris which NFS shift never had. When comparing this game with GT 5 , The graphics are kinda low . but for me TDU2 has lots of plus points than GT5. Such as HUUUGEEE map , Nice Cars ( Ferrari Italia , Bugatti veyron grand sport ) , Can Drive anywhere you want , Off Road ( AWESOME ) , Awesome sounds ( The startup sound of the Bugatti gives me goosebumps ), And Have lot of other fun stuff like Cosmetic surgery's , Car modifications , Clubs , Car showrooms . But overall i think this game is GOOD. but sometimes i feel that the makers of this game had been a little bit lazy . Just saying .......u could feel it when you play it too, ,,,, But .... one other thing , this game is SOOOOOOOOOOO worth it for $50.00 , The best thing about this game is .... IT MAKES YOU FEEL RICHHHH !! haha .....Cheers !!
I bought this game thinking it would be one of the coolest free-roam driving games out there, and I was not disappointed! This game delivers everything from the graphics to gameplay! I love the fact that you get your own houses to customize, cars to customize, different clothes, character customization, and online gameplay! This game is a massively online open world driving game that takes place in Ibiza and Hawaii. You race against people online, or you go along with the storyline of the game. If you love free-roam driving games, then this game is definitely for you!
* MAKE SURE TO SET YOUR CONTROLLER SETTINGS IN THE GAME, FOR BETTER CONTROL OVER YOUR CAR, TO:
Steering Sensitivity- 10
Speed Factor- 8
Steering Damping- 2
Dead Zone- 2
Throttle Linearity- 8
Brake Linearity- 10
* The above will make your car handle more "Realistically/Normally"
First off, I am a huge fan of free roam driving games! When I heard about this game, I was in heaven! I got it as soon as possible and started playing it. The graphics are AMAZING, the sound is FANTASTIC, and being able to drive awesome cars in free roam is great! In the game, you are also playing online with other players from around the world. I would recommend this to anyone who has a passion for driving games.
Great Job Atari!
Excellent Game. A few mistakes...
TDU2 is one of the best racing games I know. With an enormous variety of cars, it still don't got the principal ones who most of the people know/like. I mean, there are car brands that I've never heard of before, but there isn't Lamborghini... How could a great racing game like that, with an enormous variety of cars, don't have the most known and appreciated car brands! I'm very disappointed about that. About the graphics, they are amazing! They couldn't be better, especially the cockpit view of the cars. The best of all is that you've got two of the worlds most beautiful islands to explore! Ibiza and Hawaii. I really recommend this game.
Wow! Like a virtual vacation!
Wow! This is not just racing, this is virtual life. To get ahead, you have to not just be a great racer but also socially to win/acquire mansions.
- The scenery is eye candy like Grand Turismo 5.
- Music is awesome, not the heavy metal stuff like in most driving games (you have the option of changing radio stations or turning it off).
- A pretty boss
- Expore the island makes it feel like the Travel Channel.
- Map allows you to zoom in and out, making it feel like Google Earth.
- It's incredible how many sceneries and sets for the storyline there are on this disk.
- Some license tests are going to be IMPOSSIBLE, so give the controller to your kid and he'll obtain it for you then you can reap the parties and houses. For example, I couldn't pass one test for an hour so I handed my 9-year old kid the controller and he cleared it in 15 minutes with 2 seconds to spare!
Get it... you'll love it! I feel like James Bond!
Great Game For The Price
The first Test Drive was amazing, and really never got boring. So I figured why not but the Second One. When I started playing TDU 2 it was really fun until i "woke up" from my dream, this was funny but mis leading to the consumer. I also think they went a bit over board on the other stuff you can do. TDU is no longer a racing game, but a life (sim city) and racing is just your job. This can be looked at as good to a consumer or bad it depends on the person. I personally like this, i like how you can earn money and buy a house or yacht, country club membership, a sweet car, or gamble at the casino and win an Audi R8 *the casino is DLC. The Graphics on PS3 with HDMI and a 1080p TV are awesome, but the sound is absolutely not good at all. In conclusion I am happy with my purchase of this game, but there is room for improvements. I would not purchase this for the $59.99 it came out for, but for $29.99 (new) it is an awesome game.
Who wants to be a Millionaire?
I know I sure do and this might be the first game to let me live out my fantasies, million dollar mansions, high roller parties, high roller poker, and not to mention the best exotic cars on the market! I'm in heaven!!!
Would be perfect 10 if not for the controls
I played the original TDU on PC using an old Pentium D with a CAD graphics card. Played great, nice frame rate, loved the graphics and the hardcore mode. Got TDU 2 for PS3 and the first thing I noticed was a story line (just skip through it). The next thing, the only thing that I hated so much was that the game wouldn't let me change the controls. You're forced to use the triggers for gas and break, what is wrong with using the analog sticks!?!?! This also meant the buttons for changing gears now moved to Triangle and Circle. I gave the sound a low score because you're restricted to only 2 or 3 stations (forgot) and they keep repeating over and over again. Only one song was good, "Ghetto Burnin" but that's it. The game itself is great, the only things they need to change is
1.) Allow controller configuration
2.) Allow us to play songs from the hard drive (like GT5).
Both can be addressed with a simple update.
But if you have a good PC, I recommend getting the PC version. You'll be able to customize the controls in depth, better graphics and mods can be found very easily.
This is a good game but
first to start off this game is really cool. this game has the worls most beautiful cars. it is kinda hard when you get deeper in the game.lik there is a driving school once you get to hawaii the driving school is hard but you will pass it.it doesnt rain that much ,but its hard getting used to therain. overall this is a very good game
looking forward to this
I pre-ordered this game so when it comes out I will review it.I hope you can walk around anywhere you probably can't though.I am really interested in this and I'm not the biggest racing fan the only one I liked was need for speed hot pursuit.I think a lot of you need to try it out.I also hope there will be a lot of customization options as well. Hope it's good!
