J'ai l'étrange sentiment qu'ils ont simplement repris l'ile d'Hawai du premier épisode et qu'il vont soi-disant la remodélisé pour en faire Ibiza, n'importe quoi, įa aurait été préférable de changé de lieu, revenir sur le continent, pour que įa change vraiment, et j'espčre la présence de SUV !

On May 26 the game was confirmed to be coming to North America on September 21st, 2010 and Europe on September 24th, 2010. Atari have also announced that Test Drive Unlimited 2 will feature dynamic weather effects, day and night cycles, and vehicle damage. They have also mentioned that the game will take place on Ibiza. After enough gameplay, players will be able to return to an expanded and updated Oahu from the previous game. Players will be able to customize both their characters and their vehicles.There will be a storyline in TDU2 to follow for the player. To progress through the game, the player has to earn experience points. These can be earned via various ways, such as racing with friends and clubmembers, but also by driving like a daredevil and performing stunts, like drifting through turns. Exploring the island lets the player find vehicle wrecks which will unlock exclusive vehicles at the dealerships on the island, which automatically confirms the return of manufacturer showrooms like in the previous game. The player can also walk out of the car in certain areas. The player's avatar can also be customized. Customizations included hair, clothes, physical appearance and their attitude, and they can also buy houses. Co-op will also make an appearance in the game. Vehicles feature cosmetic damage which does not affect the behaviour and technical aspects of the vehicles. There is no option to manually repair the vehicle, by resetting to the road or visiting a house the car may get fixed. Rainfall does affect the handling of the vehicles though, and also influences the appearance of a vehicle as rain washes off dirt. Eden has also spent years working on a new physics engine to ensure each vehicle has its own driving behaviour. New details and functions have been added, such as different headlight modes, turning signals and working convertible roofs. There is also a vinyl-editor which is said to be similar to that of Forza Motorsport.

Virtua Stig wrote Why does Ferrari give it's license to one Street Racing game (TDU 2) but not another (NFS: Hot Pursuit)?

My guess is, after years of games like Underground, where people can modify their cars in questionable ways (ricers), Ferrari no onger wanted to be involved.

Ferrari appeared as DLC on NFS Shift...

The problem is licensing. NFS holds the license for Porsche (hence why all games have RUF instead) Forza managed to get them, because Microsoft have the rights for Ferrari, and they made an agreement. BMW is a mistery (i donīt know who holds the license, but itīs funny that TDU have Ferrari but not BMW)

I once posted this, but again, the current situation is the following:

TDU have Ferrari, but not BMW and Porsche.
GT have BMW and Ferrari, but not Porsche.
NFS have BMW and Porsche, but not Ferrari (except Shift)
Forza have all.

A mess, this is what is is...

Yes, in TDU it is like buying a real car from the car retailer, you can choose options, like the colour, possibly the wheels and material and colour of the interior.
Therefore it feels more "own", than in any other game.

J-2 ES (1087)

2010-12-21 19:01

I see 2 cases for the car list problem:

1-The list is final and they wanted to see peopleīs reaction at the missing cars, before the release, and also, make people get used to that.
2-The list isnīt final. In this case, they shouldnīt have published it, or at least, warn saying that itīs not what the game will ship with.

J-2 ES (1087)

2010-12-21 19:02

And in a 3rd case, putting back the missing car via DLC, itīs not fair, they were already on TDU, and i donīt want to pay for what we already had.

DodgeHemi426 CH (0)

2010-12-21 19:11

I don't pay for such DLC. It's just a cheap way to make money. If they said, there would be 200 cars, then they have to be available right from the beginning on if you buy the game.

They tried to change the concept from the 1st TDU, which is already a mistake, for something that reminds me of "Red Line" the movie, where is all stupid dialogs, parties, parties...and then, cars.

For me, only true games from 'Test Drive Series' are the first ones to the 7th title (Test Drive: Overdrive [2002]). Reason - Pitbull Syndicate and Accolage. The 7th one was just great one, besides the plot they added. Then came Eden and Test Drive Unlimited. And I still refuse to play them, played TDU once and the beta of TDU2. I think Need for Speed (even the releases for the Wii) are getting better for me.

Still I really nervious wait untill the NFS releases for 2011 come, and Driver: San Francisco ;)

Look at one of my previous message about cars missing from TDU...this brands are now gone:

-B Engineering
-Cadillac
-Chrysler
-Ducati
-Holden
-Kawasaki
-Lamborghini
-Lexus
-Maserati
-MV Agusta
-Noble
-Pontiac
-Saleen
-Saturn
-Thriumph

Also, some models like the CLK-GTR, XJ220 and so on are gone too. Thatīs one of the biggest problems, i really wanted to drive a Gallardo LP or a Murcielago SV arround Ibiza...

2011-02-13 13:21

I ve been playing this for a week now, and i do like it, but im also disappointed. Way too many cars and brands lost compared to the original, (TDU1 had way more makes and cars as we know). I also dont like the way theyve turned things in to championships with the different classes, there definitely seems lesser races and stuff. I liked just going to all of them individually all over the map.

TA-caprice-XI SX (8)

2011-02-14 23:11

It's not really the graphics overall that's the problem (they seem alright to me anyway), it's the extremely lazy design of the traffic cars. They are basically just generic car models with some pseudo-European styling, relatively low detail and some really shoddy texturing. The traffic cars in TDU1 were much more detailed, and their real-life counterparts were much more apparent. It's like they weren't even trying this time around.

Minor nit-pick, but still worth a mention IMO.

Its only annoying cos when learning its automaticcaly in Sport mode so it hasnt got full traction, when full assistance is on in races, the V8 vantage handles fine since i chose it over the db9 and other a5s. One annoying thing about the license is the slaloms between cones. What is that seriously trying to teach you, not once ever in any race do you slow right down to slalom between narrow cones on a straight, its completely pointless.

subzero MY (205)

2011-02-22 13:31

Man!! I just passed that test... With a time of 1:15:72, the limit is 1:15:92 I think.. IMO, the actual race is much easier than the driving school.

Desscythe17 BZ (3)

2011-02-22 21:42

I'm used to Sport mode, you just have to learn to control the spinning at low speeds with the V8 Vantage. if you can, it's pretty much an easy test.

I've got a question for you guys.

Has anyone here, on the 360 version, been in a ranked match, and someone appeared, with no car visible, and if you look at the area where the car should be, it keeps flashing, and the stats page/area lists the vehicle as a Wiesmann Roadster MF3?

That just happened to me, but I have no way to visually prove it unfortunately, so i'm not sure if the same thing has happened to any of you guys.

This...is wierd...

Ok, here's a video posted on YouTube, that shows some newly added showrooms on Ibiza.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=52g9XTx2CH0

My guess is, they're going to add new buildings, so more room for future DLC cars is available.

If you watch this video, of Oahu, Area 2, you'll notice a new Ferrari showroom. Not sure if it's for the 599XX or not, but it's not active in the Exploration Pack.

www.youtube.com/watch?v=LJIArRX0nYs

Regardless, there will be more cars in the future after the 5 cars revealed in the pack:

Ferrari 599XX

Nissan 370Z Nismo
Dodge Viper SRT10 ACR

Oh well, i loved the first TDU, played it all the time back in summer 2009. The second one dissapointed me, alot. I was obviously not the only one to be disapointed by it, there are many not-so-good reviews of the game, and that's why i thought that Eden gave it up, as in "TDU 3 will be as disapointing as TDU 2, so let's not make it in the first place".

Edit: Although the petition is being signed prety active, that could mean there will definately be a TDU 3. I have to calm down, right? :/

Anyways, here's my wishlist for TDU 3 :p

Quote More realistic driving. The steering in TDU 2 felt un-realistic.

Better damage. In TDU 2, it was stupidly-unrealistic to crash into a tree doing 160 and only ending up with a hanging front bumper and a few scratches. Oh and, it should affect the car's performance aswell.

More cars. Like a BMW M3, Ford Focus RS500, Lamborghini Gallardo, etc.

More realistic used car dealer. In TDU 2, when you bought a car in the used car dealer, it had 0 miles on the gauge. I mean, when you're buying a used car in real life, the gauge shows like 80,000 or so miles.

Cars like the Lancia Delta, Subaru Imprezza etc. should be able to compete in off-road races, too. I mean, they can go very fast off-road, so what's the point of wasting them on on-road only?

Licensed/real traffic cars. Sure, you're driving around real locations, real islands... But it feels very unrealistic when all the cars driving round the islands are fictional. Don't get me wrong, i don't have anything against fictional cars, i just think it would add a bit realistic feel if the cars driving around would be real ones. NFS did it too, right?

The police should act a bit more realistic. I mean, you're driving over 200 MPH on the wrong side of the road, and don't even get pulled over?


That's it, for now.

The only thing that surprises me about this is that they hadn't been shut down sooner.

To make things even more disappointing, it seems Atari would have to sell off the Test Drive series in order for the series to get another quality game, since Monster Games (the studio behind Eve of Destruction) works with Nintendo now, Accolade (involved with all Test Drive games from the original thru 6, plus the first 3 Off Road games) has been defunct since 1999, and the other developers of the Off Road games are as follow:

- Elite Systems (original Off Road): focused on mobile games
- Pitbull Syndicate (Off Road 2): defunct in 2009
- Infogrames (Off Road 3): also defunct in 2009
- Angel Studios (Off Road: Wide Open): now part of Rockstar Games (Rockstar San Diego)

That, and the fact that Slightly Mad Studios is busy with Project CARS, it seems unlikely the Test Drive series will survive without being picked up by another company.

Burn Rubber US (346)

2016-01-01 00:20

Well here's my first thoughts about it from two days.
Character wise,
Miami Harris is a B!tch. :lol:
Tess is a diva who cries if she loses and is a sore loser. And very cocky.
The Wilder Brothers are Alcoholics (at least Ryan anyway) who can't drive. :lol:

Game Elements,
The map reminds me very much of Medichi from JC3. So I love it!
The car list actually is fine with me. It has the supercars I hate the least. :lol:
The Wrecks are an amazingly hard minigame. (But I bought a house and a dune buggy wreck was next to it. :D)
Soundtrack is okay. But has good and bad songs. (But the first thing I heard when I turned the radio on the first time was a ad for pills to improve sex appeal. So..... :lol:)
Storyline? A little rushed at the start. But it's an okay storyline.

Big Changes I noticed from TDU1 on PS2.
1. You can walk around the dealers and house now.
2. Vynil editor is new.
3. The police are f-ing annoying. :lol: used to I'd duck off the road for a few miles, but now a chopper bust you if you're offroad. :(
4. New "Drivertars" are present.
5. Day-Night cycle is here. (But I hate how time passes when you're paused. :( )
6. You actually have to find shops now. They aren't just faded out on the map and you drive there.
7. Character customization! I was sad when you couldn't get a Hawaiian shirt. :( and there are no tattoos. Even though half of the male characters have them. But it's very cool customization.

But just the lack of an S15 makes it a 9/10. After a final totaling, 8.5/10 is my final rating. Coulda been 9.5 but some rev forgot to code the S15. :whistle:

AutoTracker US (112)

2016-01-01 00:53

Hey, someone who actually LIKES TDU2! My Opinion:

Car list: Honestly, dissapointing. Seems like it's 90% supercars like most games now...
Wrecks: A fun and challenging minigame that rewards you with new cars once you've found all them. What more could you ask?
Soundtrack: Ditto
Police: I've actually never gotten into a cop chase on TDU2, since I'm not a driver who rams every car off the road, or knocks down every piece of public property. Though it kinda annoys me they don't chase you for speeding, but they do for running through a stop sign :/
Shops: Kinda annoying to find. I actually had to watch YouTube videos to find the locations of the car dealers on Ibiza and Hawaii.
Character Customization: Never did it. I'm at Hawaii on the A3 championship and yet I'm still wearing my valet uniform from the beginning of the game... :lol:

Verdict: Okay, but could have been better.

Oh yeah. I remember now. Seriously, when you said that, you brought me back to Winter 2011/2012 when I first played this game. For some reason, I used to hit the cop cars on purpose and then stop when they start chasing me. And then when I saw the Busted cutscene I just cracked up LOL. :lol:

Looks like you guys doing TDU2 review. Well, I'll do mine because I also played the game until A4 Championship:

1. The map is huge but I always think it's very quiet in both islands (especially the city area)
2. The vehicles lists are good, although it lacks Japanese and American cars
3. The radio and music is bad. I only like few songs on both radios, and the advertising is kind of forced to be more GTA-like
4. Character customization is way more improved than TDU, and I like it.
5. The vehicles features are the huge plus in this game. You can manually use indicator, rolling windows up and down, and also raise and lower the roof on convertibles!
6. The cops are much more of a nuisance in the game. They have better equipped vehicles with heavier weight so it's hard to ram them. Going off-road will get you the chopper attention, but at least the felony system is much better than in TDU (two traffic violations will only raise half a bar instead of immediately getting chased by police)
7. The story is forced and not really into my liking
8. The handling physics is worse than TDU. Cars get way too slippery on the corner and handles worse than in TDU.

Verdict: the game is good, but there are some field that need an improvement to make it better.

Racedriver43 wrote Based on the gameplay, TDU2 was never completed. It's easy to explain why.

Eden Games went bankrupt a few years ago, when TDU2 was getting more updates and DLC. Just like every developer when nothing goes their way, ya' know what they do instead of finishing their old games on consoles, and PC? They go to Mobile games(GT Legends), and let modders finish their game.


Even though it was developed by Eden Games, the bigger company involved was Atari. Which consistantly tries to sell poor attempts at games. They could have delayed the game, y'know, involve another developer maybe to finish the game? But nah, they'd rather eliminate any possibility at building on a great game aimed at car enthusiasts.

Don't expect it to be better than the original, but better than TDU2 would be nice. Hopefully Atari stays out this time.
