Excitement turns to frustration,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Test Drive Unlimited 2 - Xbox 360 (Video Game)
I pre-ordered this game because several of my friends were getting it as well. In the days before I received it, I watched numerous videos and became excited to play it. When I did receive it, I played it for several hours. I liked the graphics, but I was not impressed with the driving physics and the racing. The single-player races are very arcady and disappointing. Then began the problems with the servers. After purchasing the Casino DLC, the servers went down and I was not able to play with my friends or in the casino at all. Since then, the servers have cycled through working and not working and it is very frustrating.
The game is also missing certain "key" functions, like the ability to sell cars. The only way I know of to do this is if your garage is full, you must sell a car you currently own to purchase another. You are not able to directly select a car and sell it. There are few good ways to make money in the game, which is a very important part of the game. Once all races have been created, making large sums of money effectively disappear. One solution would be to go to the Casino, but it does not work right now, plus you are not guaranteed to make more money than you lose.
-Servers not working
-Limited money-making methods
-Poor driving physics
-Missing cars and functionality
If you really want this, I would strongly advise you to wait until the problems with the servers and the game have been sorted out, if that ever happens.
