    Test drive unlimited 2

    Banned
    Who has it?

    Was hoping for a demo to try it out,

    What's the verdict is it worth buying for the online features and cusomizable options?

    I never played the first one but actually quite like this, certainly different to most driving games. Not tried the online side of it yet, but the driving and single player missions have been good so far.

    BUT, if you look at the Test Drive forum, most people are quite 'horrified' at how bad the game is. Seems to be people from TDU 1 that see the game as broken and not an improvement.

    I certainly like it and will continue to play it.

    Warning: reading the forum posts will almost certainly put you off the game!


    every games forums is the same these days. F1, COD they were all like this. The people who like the game will just be playing it. I think it must be cool to moan about every single thing in a game these days.

    I've just got this on Steam, but have yet to play it. (I assume you'll get it on console)
    I'll probably get on this tonight so will let you know what I think.

    I agree with what you are saying. I don't often follow games on forums before release, but as you say F1 2010 had the same thing happen, and yet I thought that was a great game still.

    I think some people expect too much from some games, especially sequels. I just play the games for what they are and enjoy what they have given you.

    The biggest complaint has been the handling, I played the game before reading the forums and it didn't cross my mind that there was an issue with the handling. Seems fine to me.

    F1 2010 was definately broken though......the pitstop glitch was unbelievable. How they could have missed it in testing is beyond me.

    True, but at least it was patched early on. There are 1 or 2 things in TDU2 that will need a patch, as long as that happens soon it's not a game breaker.

    Have to agree that it's strange how some issues on all games are not picked up during testing (and TDU2 has been in Beta testing for a long time).
    Wonder sometimes if they just ignore some issues in the hope they don't get noticed.

    I'll definately still be picking up TDU2 tomorrow..........the reviews are good.

    The F1 patch update still didn't work for me. Massive f1 fan but the game was a massive disappointment. Lets hoping the release a demo for F1 2011 so they actually get feedback where it needs improving.

    Think I will pick it up tomorrow, I'm not expecting to much from the game but the driving around with friends sounds like fun online.

    Officially out tomorrow, but I think it was Simply Games that was posted on here last week. They were selling it early but then stopped the other day and apologised for their 'mistake'.

    Driving with friends sounds good, but thats one of the current issues. It seems you either can't see your friends on the road at all or they vanish after a short time. I think joining a club with friends is the only way it works properly at the moment. Let's hope for a patch soon.

    Those enjoying the game are playing it, not typing about it.

    I played a bit of this last night.
    Damn! I wanted that Ferrari!

    First impressions seem good. Good to see other online players on your travels.
    Handling is average, more arcadey type I guess. Graphics are good! (well, always will be with PC)
    Have yet to play more...

    I'd prob give it a 7/10 for now.
