-- The graphics are good, Very High, 8xAA on 3 monitory Eyefinity and it is nice to look at.
-- In just a short time there is tons to do. Way more than your normal driving game.
-- The maps and play area looks huge.
So overall, I am already pleased. This game is $5 on sale and sadly, I almost didn't buy it. Why? All the horrific reviews on here. I am so glad I got it, I will definitely get my $5 worth :)
Take reviews on Amazon with a grain of salt!
Hard to play with a mouse and keyboard... DUH.. read the info. section!!! lol. "Additional Info: DirectX 9.0c-compatible 10-button controller such as Xbox 360 or Logitech Dual-Action"
Don't be cheap and get yourself a --Logitech wireless710 Xbox controller. Almost all games now are built around a controller.
--It requires an internet connection.. Yup, if you can't stand it, be forewarned. Don't buy it and then complain about it LOL. You do not however have to log into the server to play. I hate online multiplayer games, and while I guess this has one, at the start up screen, click "offline" and there is no logging in or anything.
-- I can't figure out how to set up my monitor or hardware so this game sucks! LOL...C'mon, you can't figure out your hardware and the game is a bummer? I have no problems running this on 3 monitors @5760x108op HD :P
--Takes so long to download and online only... Again you can play offline and if you have a really crappy internet connection why rate a game bad because your internet service is slow. That has ZERO to do with this game and yet 1 star reviews! LOL.Read more ›
I'll divide it into categories to avoid making wall of text :D. There maybe some spoilers. Don't say I didn't warned ya.
1st up is the GRAPHICS:
The game graphics is "good" in today's' game graphics standards. But it lacks a lil' bit on bloom effect like most recent NFS games. Everything is detailed from roads, grass, trees and houses. The cars were looking perfect in my eyes. Overall I'll give the graphics 4/5.
You race, rise in the ranks then race again just like every other racing games out there. No rocket science here :). The races were separated in 3 classes; ASPHALT - ( Sport Cars ) CLASSIC - ( Classic Cars, mostly RWD cars ) and finally OFF-ROAD ( SUV's ). Each classes is divided into 7 levels. And each level composing of at least 2 championship races. There's ALOT of racing in this game, they won't disappoint. There's also some mini missions. I won't spoil it. This game is online, though you can play offline if you prefer. 5/5
The very 1st race I've played... awful. Cars skid and under steer like it's their default movement. Though you can fix it in the options. There are 3 choices; FULL SUPPORT, SPORTS and HARDCORE. Don't try hardcore ( as the game is set to hardcore on default ). The sports one hits the spot perfectly ( though some cars still skid and understeer alot specially RWD cars ). Once you get use to it, you'll be a pro in no time. 4/5
Like I said, this is an online game. But you really would ask yourself the moment you jump into the game: "where's the world chat? friend chat? or is there even chat capability built in-game? NO, if your playing the ps3 xbox 360 version then yes.Read more ›
When the sequel came out everyone seemed to despise it instantly.
I did a little extra research - and I must say it was hard to find an unbiased review.
Youtube: Classic Game Room TDU2 -[...]
This was the most complete and honest review I could find.
The graphics and overall game quality is the most disputed aspect of this game. The graphics are amazing. They spent a lot of work on the environments and cars. The people - could use some serious help. But this IS a racing game. If you are interested in dressing up digital barbie dolls I suggest the SIMS. In TDU2 your "avatars" exist to help you interface and communicate with other players. They aren't super realistic, but I've seen worse.
It's also important to make sure your computer can handle the graphics of a game like this. Many people buy games and then complain about bugs and graphics. When it's all actually their computer system being overwhelmed by the amount of data. So please - check system requirements carefully.
There were some legitimate handling issues during the initial release. However, the recent patches have fixed the handling.
Currently, there have been problems with the TDU2 servers. Players have been hacking into the game to increase their levels and money supply. Thanks to their selfishness, the TDU2 servers crashed and new security protocols will have to be created before the servers can be made accessible again.
For some unknown reason there seems to be a lot of hate for this game. Yes - the cut-scenes and character models are cheesy. Yes - the plot-line is ridiculous. But the cars are amazing and it's packed full of fun racing. Isn't that what racing games are all about?
