    Atari's latest open-world racer serves up hotter cars, warmer climates and more torrid racing action than its predecessor. [April 2011, p.70]

    However you play TDU2, you're likely to miss out on something Eden Games and Atari did extremely well. Whether that's vehicle paint and decals, avatar fashions, car interiors, a surprisingly robust casino experience, or just some gorgeous scenery in certain out-of-the way places, there's just way too much good stuff going on in this game to have anyone yawning with a cursory playthrough.

    Don't get us wrong, Test Drive Unlimited 2 is a very decent game. With a massive island to explore, beautiful cars and scenery that can take your breath away, it's an absolute eye candy. Still, almost every aspect of the game can use some polish. [Mar 2011, p.99]

    Enormous and ambitious, Test Drive Unlimited 2 is a good game and a truly unique gameplay-experience. It's a step forward for the series.

    TDU 2, like its predecessor, is a very self-absorbed and meditative game. It doesn't force you to dash through all the championships, to fly to the final race... But there comes an inevitable moment when you start pondering what to do next. All tasks have been completed, all cars have been tested, and you're the best in your club... And that's it?

    The developers just ignored the releases of the last four years, so everthing in this game is way out of date: AI, mission designs, physics and online mode. Get Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit instead.

    Why do people love and hate this? I'll tell you.
    If you have a controller or wheel then TDU2 will be a whole heap of fun to drive around the endless roads and beautifully rendered scenery. If you are using keyboard only then there is a good chance that your tapping techniques will fail and cause you to write an explosive slamming review. PCâ

    Lack of subtitles for cutscenes has put me off. I have been lost working out what I should do in the game. Luckily, my familiarity with TDU1Lack of subtitles for cutscenes has put me off. I have been lost working out what I should do in the game. Luckily, my familiarity with TDU1 has helped me gain a basic understanding on how the game is supposed to be played. It's pretty average. Story is scored 0 because I need subtitles to help understand, even if I am a English speaker. Therefore this have no repsect for hearing impaired players like me. But bercause the gameplay is fun, I give it a 10 so 10 and 0 balances out as 5. Expand

    terrible car handling that makes you wanna headbutt the screen.
    unsastisfying graphics performance that can go glitchy.
    a total step-down

    Well, where to start?
    TDU2 tries to be many things. most of which it fails at quite miserably.
    Lets start with what should be the focal point
    Well, where to start?
    TDU2 tries to be many things. most of which it fails at quite miserably.
    Lets start with what should be the focal point of the game. Cars. Now right off the bat the cars look pretty good, well modeled and the like. But from there it all falls apart.For starters the engine noise of every cars sounds meek and powerless, the handling (if you could call it that) is very floaty and more often than not you'll end up off-roading. Also maybe it's just me but from the 10 or so hours i put into this game it seems to me like this game has the worst automatic transmission in existence. Off the line my car would not engage first gear for a few seconds then go right to second gear then gear back down to first and then piddle back into second. By which time my opponents had pulled away nicely. So in short as a driving game if is awful. As a open world game it has some legs but they're all but ruined by the aforementioned means of exploring said world. the radio dj's are beyond stupid. talking about how their station plays the best death metal to then lead into some indie rock song.
    The story is so bad i don't even want to recant it
    The games a bloody mess. its not worth anymore than $5. you've been warned.
