Real Disappointment

I was looking forward to playing this game for months but it has proven to be a major letdown at this point. As most other reviews have stated the concept and hype were just not executed in this one. The car mechanics are awful, and there is just too much empty space with lack of activities to want to explore. I've been struggling trying to give this game a chance as I purchase new cars but just doing the simple things seems to take an eternity. I put NFS Hot Pursuit back in to download the update and it helped me realize the flaws in TDU2. In my opinion this is worth a rental but I would say pick up NFS HP or even Split Second for fast paced arcade action or GT5 for simulator. TDU2 just doesn't get it done.

Bear in mind that 10 minutes of this review consisted of downloading and installing ~350MB of updates!

Graphics are ashamedly poor for this day and age. All circular objects are made distinctly of polygons.

Gameplay is tedious; you're not given the option of skipping title sequences.

Driveability of the one car I did "Test Drive:; the Ferrari California is poor. Steering control is very "digital" and non-linear. The car seems sluggish to pull and the dynamics of the software seem pale in comparison to that of Gran Turismo 5 or even the Need for Speed series.

I'm definitely glad I didn't buy this game in the stores for $60.

Another plus for the benefits of a GameFly subscription!

Online racing mmo...great idea if only the servers werent down almost every day since launch. TDU2 tries to add realistic physics but falls flat on its face. If youve never driven a real car you may like it.

Get GT5 if you want a good racing game.
