Test Drive Unlimited 2 Issues

The Test Drive Unlimited 2 Forums now have threads on Xbox 360 Issues, PS3 Issues, and PC Issues, discussing problems and solutions for the racing sequel on all three platforms, along with a new work-in-progress official post-release FAQ (thanks Ken). The list of issues being investigated and resolved for the PC edition follows (this was posted today, but refers to February 10th as tomorrow, so make of that what you will).

Issues Being Investigated:

  • Manual Unavailable - Some users have reported that the PC install did not come with a PC manual. We're working on a solution for customers affected by this issue.
  • Amazon not listed at /redeem - This should be resolved now.
  • Changing your account password locks out your profile - This has been escalated for investigation.
  • Some users did not receive a GT500 bonus code - Soon, you will be able to claim your pre-order bonus at www.testdriveunlimited2.com/redeem. This is not live yet, and should go live around tomorrow afternoon (feb 10), pacific time.
  • Disappearing friends list? - Some users have reported that their friends list is disappearing in the game. Please provide me with a link to a thread with 10 unique users reporting this issue and I will escalate accordingly.
  • Wheel control issues? - Wheel control issues will be tackled once the major service items are smoothed out.

Resolved Issues:

  • Wrong car image for Ferrari GTB China Ed. - This is fixed now. The correct car image now appears.
  • The build title contains "QA" and "Review" - Known issue. Future versions should no longer contain the inaccurate label of "QA," but as expected the disc name will remain the same for the near future as they have already been printed.
  • Version Discrepencies - This is working as designed for the moment. Depending on where and how you get the game, you will be provided with a different version number. While the version numbers differ, the game is identical. Future patches should bring all games to a unified version number.

What Atari meant to say was, "Sorry that our heads were up our asses when we released the game. This was due to the fact that even though we had a very large group of beta testers, we ignored them on every espect of the game and made it however the fuck WE thought was best, even though we don't have a clue what makes a great racing/driving game."

Now they just need to work on overhauling the shitty Saturday Morning Cartoon physics.... (Yes, even for an arcade-style racer, they suck ass.)

Sad this game went backwards on whats important and forward on the fluff.

Too unrealistic, the unrealism is fairly consistent

Tried with wheel and controller. Found it like driving bricks with ski. Heck you can't even call it a game about cars, while it may look and sound like a car, it doesn't handle like one at all.

All the cars tend to understeer too which is a clear sign that they don't simulate the suspension and inertia (or even mass). Or put differently, BC2 has better car physics than TDU2 and also true -> Driving the buggy and jeep in between fire fights in BC2 is more fun than driving all the cars in TDU2 combined. How is that for a verdict?

All thats true, but the true death of this game is the terrible car handling. I mean its even worse than in TDU1 - and i thought thats not even possible.

Pretty much saw all this coming after that abortion they called a beta.

Too bad, the original was such a fun game.
