5.0 out of 5 stars TDU2 Buggy but being sorted 11 Mar 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Hi all,

I have been reading the reviews that people are giving and I feel that I have to put my opinion out there.

Test Drive Unlimited 1 was a great game, a big online comunity, a huge island (Hawaii) with thousands of miles of roads to freely drive on, Hundreds of races, Several Championships, Plenty of cars, some Bikes, and loads to see, do and find. The problems for me were that the undulating road surfaces were not smooth, but angled, which meant at speed your car/Bike could lose control when going up or down a hill due to the sometimes harsh angle. Also the Windows 7 Compatibility was a little off, you could get it to work, but it took a little work.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 is far better in every way. There are now 2 islands, Hawaii and Ibiza, both with completely drivable surfaces, i.e. You can drive everywhere and anywhere except on water obviously :-). They have added Off-Road Racing, More Cars, More Races, More Championships, More Tournaments, Better Online Community support including Clubs, more Online race types including Co-Op modes. They have even added a Casino with Roulette, Slot machines and Texas Hold-em Cash games, Sit and go Tournaments as well as 4 VIP Tournaments.

The Scope of TDU2 is MASSIVE!!! It's trully amazing what they have done with the game. There is just so much to do and with more to come it's hard to fault...But there are some niggles...

I do feel the developers have rushed the game out, I feel that this is a big mistake for ANY developer to do, and many big developers do it, I just feel that for the early adopters it leaves a bad taste in the mouth.

There are issues with the servers going down, getting much better on a daily basis.

3.0 out of 5 stars was ok upto release 14 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
i played the beta of the game back in november and it was pretty good, it worked well upto the times it crashed me to the desktop a few times. i am very disappointed to hear that this game from other reviewers here that it is only half completed, i would of thought that with them beta tests that they had got a number of issues fixed and not left on the development computer, how wrong was that optimism considering like any big company they take shortcuts to make a profit.

For the moment i will not buy this released version until they either recall all the discs and upgrade it or bring out a big patch upgrade to fix all these problems. what a way to rip off the customers, i would of thought all them months with the forums may have given that lot an idea of what to do.

the game is car based, clearly, but you have to complete PVE/PVP based missions to upgrade your global level which also means that you can unlock all sorts of cars, track configurations to the two maps that you have, player interaction from what i saw is solid, which means if a player lags, you will feel the full force of that lag and end up flying 2 miles above the computer generated island your on at the time before crashing to earth really hard, the loading sequence to a challenge is also dependent on others connections. the PVE content is basically interaction on any level against other players and what is offered in the shops, or how fast you travel, how high you fly off a cliff and land, how hard you hit a car or how long you can get away from the police during a chase and earn a criminal notoriety level or become the opposite and become a freelance mercenary for the police and unlock enforcer ranks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ok!! it needs work 19 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
As an owner of the first test drive unlimited (xbox 360 version) which i loved, i wanted this version just as much.. With the xbox version sold out in record time everywhere, i thought just grab the pc version for time being, then read nearly all reviews with how bad this is... "hmmmmmm should i??" so i tossed a coin which made me buy it.

Ok installed pretty quick to what some people were saying.. Updated 3/4 times before letting me jump in, then noticed that it was windowed mode and everything set to keyboard.. ok jump to settings etc/video/full screen.. "aha".. i got full screen... "sound?".. yep got sound... xbox controller?... found xbox controller.. so no problem so far to what ive read.

In game.. yes you can not skip the cut scenes with all the bad voice over acting (god knows where they got these voice actors from... must of been eastenders!!) then your in a ferrari (dream) and your first drive.. Ok!! controllers need sorting out, its way way to sensitive on the xbox sticks, so after a little bit of messing around with sliders, " there.. that aint too bad now" then before you know it (and a few more cut scenes)your in a race, got your first car, and getting out there with the other players.. not bad at all.

But it does have some annoying problems at the mo... First of all, the annoying cut scenes which you just dont need that keep popping up to every race series your about to start..also every bloomin american thats logged in with headsets on that just suddenly come up very loudly on the speakers with rock music playing in the back ground!! whats this, a commercial for nirvana!! (actually i had that problem in the first one). Car getting stuck on some very low kerbs. And the odd time out connection.
