Summary: Bought this game because I thought it was as good as the first one, even better, but heck no, its not fun at all, got bored in less than 10 hours in game. Driving physics are not so good, cars look way to cartoony, and sound effects are bad. Don't get me started on the characters voice acting and facial expressions, just plain horrible. I was really disapointed with this game and I'm glad I returned it.
ok, still needs more work in order to make it realistic as possible

Summary: the concept of the game is great but the overall execution is poor. There is still a lot of glitches that needs to be fixed; the developers should play the game before they decide to release it on the market.
Excerpt: When I took a family holiday to Majorca we hired a car and drove up the scenic west coast. With spectacular views out to sea and mountains dropping dramatically down to the water it really is one of the most beautiful places to drive. When I saw Test Drive Unlimited 2 was set on the island ofIbiza and offers an open-world driving experience I really hoped for a PS3 version of my holiday driving experience.
Pros: The idea of driving around Ibiza
Cons: It just doesn't work . This game is broken !
Excerpt: Fast cars, expensive houses, miles and miles and miles of road (and offroad) to explore from Ibiza to Hawai. What more can a man ask for? I used to play TDU 1 a lot, and i was expecting a next generation super polished title. I anticipated this title like i did to no other. The first strange thing here was the early release, but i just thought "whatever, the sooner the better". So the big day had finally arrived, and i was super excited.
Pros: Big world to explore; A fair variety of cars; Excellent concept;
Cons: Unpolished; Poor physics; Dead citys; Bad storyline; Poor engine noises; Sluggish MP;
Good at first, but soon gets boring and seems rushed.

Conclusion: This is an edited review as i gave it four stars through first few hours of playing. But it's true colours soon show as its gets more and more repetative. Characters are cheesy and annoying, races don't vary much, graphics arn't nothing special. First off you get the impression theres going to be loads of cars but this is not the case, theres so many manufacturers left out. No, Renault, Mitsuibshi, Honda, Lambo, Noble, BMW, Vauxhall and many more.
Excerpt: Test Drive includes varieties of cars to suit everybody, from Alfa Romeo Mito to the Bugatti Veyron. the graphics are full HD 1080p and are very clear. The sounds of the cars are amazing in the in-car view and sound very realistic with each car having their own unique sound. the only downside to the sounds is that all the horns are the same with no chance to change them, but that is only a minor point.
Pros: Lots of cars ranging from cheap everyday cars to the expensive supercars of the rich and famous
