    A very enjoyable game, despite some blind spots in the graphics and sound areas: the social aspects and the many, many things to do in Ibiza and Oahu will keep your interest high for a long time.

    Though it offers more diversity than its predecessor, it can't reach top scores in our review due to the literally nonexistent story.

    TDU2 is an incredible toy box full of racing, exploring, car collection and the lifestyle of the fast and famous. But the rough start has probably made the rest of the game's experience a lot less than it could have been.

    Developer Eden Studios has put way too much time in creating a good online experience. This is probably the reason why the gameplay hasn't really improved on its predecessor. Test Drive Unlimited 2 is a good game, but can't challenge the greater racing games of our generation.

    We were really looking foreward to TDU 2. The controls of the cars and the AI are really poor. Online multiplayer is more offline than online.

    Test Drive Unlimited 2 is a strangely satisfying and very frustrating arcade racer.

    Test Drive Unlimited 2 definitely has its moments and I can't deny the game's quirky charm. But the great strength of the roster of cars, the enjoyable driving model and compelling location can't eclipse the lack of enjoyable content or the confusing economy.

    Not understanding the bad reviews for this game. This is one of the most brilliant, large world you can explore in. More fun than exploring inNot understanding the bad reviews for this game. This is one of the most brilliant, large world you can explore in. More fun than exploring in any RPG, plus you can level up!
    I think the dirt races are more fun than the asphalt races, but really it doesn't matter when there's SO MUCH to do besides only racing. If you have a a lot of time on your hands, this game should keep you occupied for months, at the least.

I guess if you're not EA, you do not get fair ratings. The game has everything, and does it well. Even a Casino. which Atari could have sold as a seperate game (it comes bundled in some purchases). The graphics are beautiful, and its the only game theat blends single player and multiplayer flawlessly. As you play Single Player, you can actually see online gamers driving around. You can even challenge them to races, or just cruise with "Virtual Tourism". I played TDU1 for 5 years, still play it and TDU2 I'll be playing for 5 I'm sure. Expand

    Misunderstood game. Usually I would rate a game lower than the critics but I happen to love this game. Could be because I enjoy aMisunderstood game. Usually I would rate a game lower than the critics but I happen to love this game. Could be because I enjoy a traffic/driving simulator over racing simulator. While most racing games has better car details, this one has a lot more road, and details of stuff that matters to me. Traffic, weather, day/night etc. Most games has an invisible wall at the edge of the road. In this game, whole Oahu and Ibiza is open. I'd hope for a better physic/collision system, but it doesn't spoil the fun. I general, no other racing games provide a realistic world with progression system like this one. Presentation and story is far from good, but in this game it doesn't matter. It's not an adventure game, it's a driving game - story doesn't mean anything. This game has a great atmosphere, and if I read the review before I bought it, I wouldn't have bought it. I'm so glad I pre-paid this game. I'll spend much more time with this game than GT5. I'll easily defend a 9. Expand

    Good game, terrible voice acting and cutscenes but get past those and the bugs and underneath is a good looking and fun driver that will eatGood game, terrible voice acting and cutscenes but get past those and the bugs and underneath is a good looking and fun driver that will eat many hours up just wandering round the islands (especially ibiza) enjoing the scenery and messing about with buddies. Because that is where the entertain is, just pulling up in a car park to find 12 other petrol heads doughnutting around and having a laugh. Expand

The previous game was one of the best racing games I had played in a long time and I was looking forward to what would be improved and added to this game. What I got instead was complete disappointment. The cars and the two islands were great, but that's about it. The licenses were an unnecessary add on and the story line is pretty pathetic. The voice acting is also overdone and is very cheesy. The way to upgrade cars has also been worsened. I even have the PS2 version of the first game, and its better than this by a long shot. Overall, I'm going to keep playing good racing games like the first TDU and others like Project Gothem Racing 2, 3, and 4. Expand
