I loved the first game but this one is copying grand turismo the driving school cars suck why do I need a special liscense to race? Plus why in the world can't I get a nice car because I can't pass the liscenses so to sum up this game is terrible and a ripoff of gran turismo wish it had more free driving feel like the first but nope. so I wouldn't buy it don't rent either i'm glad I didn't go and buy this

the controls were completely busted for the ps3. i had to dampen and kill the sensitivity on the steering and kill the speed factor but still all i could ever manage was spinning out on the wet roads trying to get my first license.
i'm absolutely stunned by how poor this game was. maybe if i try it on xbox the controls might actually be usable.
As a huge fanboy of the first game and the mechanics used from the first TDU my expectations i admit were very high. How ever as a realist i did lower them once i got the game keeping in mind that sequals are never as good as the original. How ever the devloper tried to make this a cross between need for speed and TDU. Test Drive Unlimited never emphasized the drifting technique though being available was only an addition to the game. The driving controls where very unstable and turns even on the easiest difficulty were nearly impossible even at the lowest of speeds. Im sorry but in a driving/racing game 12 miles an hour should not spin my car into a fish tail causing me to slam into an oposing car and loose my "Drift Points". Horrible sequal and a disgrace to the the first game.
