It feels like this is the first game and the first TDU is the second one, seriously. this has worse graphics, man they're nasty!! terrible handling, absolutely unplayable!!! no motorbikes - what the hell!! i tried so hard to like this game, i really did. played it for hours and hours but just hated it. what a shame!! stick to the first one, trust me!!
This has to be one of the most fun and enjoyable racing games i have ever played. the sheer scale of the openess of the game is mind blowing. With two islands to drive around and plenty of events, missions & races to complete this game will keep you entertained for hours.
if you like racing games and you want to sometimes relax and drive rather than full on race this game is for you.
the only bad point to the game is that when you do evetually complete all events it is very hard to earn large sums of money.
online is good even if a little laggy at times and the fact that you can even create your own races and challenges all over the two islands makes the game even more desirable.
I was really looking forward to this game, having got the original when I bought my first XBOX many moons ago. The single player game is a real disappointment, too easy and with a comical storyline and over theatrical soundbites. Online was unplayable for the first 5 weeks, as the servers were constantly down and awaiting a patch. Well the 195mb patch finally arrived and it's still rubbish online. You can't join your friends (I appeared 17 miles away from my friend when I attempted this) and if you manage to appear in front of them in free roam, they're sitting in mid air inside an invisible car. Do yourself a favour and buy the original, as it was complete on launch, or download a zx spectrum emulator and play chequered flag instead
