I was so excited to see this back on the market; TDU 1 used to be one of my favorite games. However, this game is borderline unplayable on Windows 10. I've logged <90 minutes of gameplay so far, and have had 4 un-recoverable game crashes that required restarting the computer*. No rhyme or reason to them. One happened during a cutscene, one while entering a dealership and autosaving, two happened while driving. Verifying the game cache's integrity through Steam after one crash yielded 18 problematic files. I even tried running it in Windows 7 compatibility mode. No luck.

IF you can get it to work, from what I got to play, it seems like exactly what you'd want in a driving game and a sequel to the first TDU. Not a racing game, but a driving game. A huge open world, plenty of cars, and plenty of driving to do. Pretty poor sound quality, but it works well with the game for some reason. Physics are fairly bad and arcade-like. Graphical quality is about average for a 5 year old game, but definitely acceptable. It will support a resolution of at least 1920x1080. Frame rates (when the game wasn't crashing) were regularly over 100fps; very nice on a 144hz monitor, and the game will allow for a frame limit/refresh rate of at least 144 via the in-game menu. PS4 controller is not supported, but Xbox One/360 controllers are.

If you're interested, give it a shot for $5 while it's on sale. However... Caveat Emptor. It may or may not work for you. For me, I'll be requesting a refund.

Note as of this writing:
-YES there are servers online.
-YES there are other players still playing online.
-NO the TDU2 website does not work completely reliably, but you can still create an account at least.

The rumors of TDU2's demise are greatly exaggerated.

I played this game extensively on Xbox 360 and migrated over to PC when my old 360 called it quits. I was wary about buying TDU2 because of all the reviews stating that the servers are down, that you can't log into the game, et cetera. Those are all false. I've been playing this online with real people for several days now. The servers aren't dead and they're not ghost towns, there are many people roaming Ibiza and Hawaii and most are willing to race or exchange messages. The game does require you to create an account in order to play online, but that is easily accomplished by visiting the TDU2 website and signing up there. Installation went well, and the initial start up and every start up since has not posed any problems for me on Windows 8.1.

TDU2 is an older racing game, but is still a lot of fun, especially if you enjoy collecting cars and free roaming two huge islands. I would happily pay $19.99 for this game right now on PC, and I definitely recommend it at the sale price of $4.99.

Not sure why so many peope having issues with this game. Plays beautifully at max settings for me with a pair of GTX 660s in SLI. Smooth as butter, with Vsync off.

Working with my Thrustmaster T150 wheel, with T3PA pedals and a pair of TH8A shifters... one for shifting and the other for handbrake. I was worried about this, since racing games with anything but my racing cockpit simply sucks.

I'm connected and being challenged to races by other players. I am declining since I am just learning the game so far and have no upgrades.

Love the game, I like the fact that the view turns into corners in cockpit view, something from the old Cross Racing Championship 2005 game that I wish all race games would have. Plenty of cars to choose from. Obviously, they don't handle like a sim but that's not what I bought this game for. Open world cruising like Need For Speed World was with some upgrading of you character elements. Buying new houses, garages, clothes, cosmetically changing your looks, etc. Kinda goofy but kinda cool at the same time.

The scales is huge, I had to drive 2 miles to see the cosmetic doctor and it felt like it.

Steam Summer sale for the win! Wish I bought it last year when I was thinking about it.

I haven't even started playing this crap and I'm already feeling like getting a refund. The installation was ♥♥♥♥ing hell.
Registration? ? ? ? Worst experience ever. Their servers can't even handle .css and I gotta register on my own, TYPPING OR SAERCHING FOR THEIR WEBSITE... Game uploads via their own program, NOT STEAM. I played the game on my friends computer and it was quite trash. Handling is terrible, story is trash, graphics suck... I only bought it because it was 5€ and I wanted to play something online with my friends and just drive around the city. Seriously, if you are as sensitive as me, DON'T EVEN CONSIDER BUYING.

DO NOT BUY! IS NOW A TOTAL WASTE OF MONEY!

1. Server is no longer operational
2. Absolutely no support for new players
3. Asks you to creat an atari account which is no longer supported and therefore impossible for new people.
4. If running win10 it is a 50/50 chance you will be able to play it, if not then the only way to fix is a clean install of the OS and they may not work the first time.

Please do not take this as me saying the game is bad. I have put around 1000+hrs in to the game on xbox and wanted to try and relive those memories on the PC. The game was superb, driving was a mixture of simulation/arcade style, leaning towards the simulation. Graphics were on point for the date of release. It was generally just an incredibly fun game that was totally original :) Now however, you are simply paying money for a product which wont work. Paid full price to find they don't even support the F**KING launcher!!

TLDR; Multiplayer DOES still function (for me anyway), Meh car handling, decent variety of cars, nice visuals, awful story & voice acting and 2 very large maps (takes about an hour to drive around them). 7 out of 10,
ONLY BUY WHEN ON SALE FOR 75% OFF

Test Drive Unlimited 2 is an open world driving game with a heavy emphasis on the "super car" lifestyle; collecting cars, houses and clothes and various other material possesions. There is a story but its so badly written and voice acted, you wont miss anything interesting if you choose to skip the cutscenes, it's just a weak excuse to have races across Ibiza and Hawaii. The actual racing itself is fairly arcadey, cars drift easily and generally don't have much feeling of weight but some simulation-ness is still present, of you mash the accelerator while drifting and you have the driving aids turned off you'll just spin out. The AI is fairly dumb in the early game, but it can get vaugely difficult when you're getting into the mid to late game. I can't speak about the multiplayer gameplay, but let it be known that IT DOES STILL WORK, just not that well and the multiplayer is on a ticking time bomb of whenever Atari decides to shut down support.

Overall this game is worth a try if it's on sale and you like cars and you if can bully some friends to get it as well, you can get a fair bit of play time out of it.

This game won't even start - TDU2 Launcher returns Error #03.
Despite following numerous user-suggested solution on the Internet, nothing will force this piece of ♥♥♥♥ to start.
Atari's website is still selling this game, despite their support and forums for this game being long dead.
No articles help in making this game start.
Don't waste your money - if you can, buy console version that seems to work (♥♥♥♥ you for that Atari), or look for "genuine PC copy" on torrents.
That is exaclty the kind of publisher attitude that reinforces piracy.

Product received for free
This game is an epic racing and cruising came. If you have friends, it will be more funnier. Story is quite good, car models are realistic and graphics are good.

What i love about this game:
-Very good car models and variations.
-Modifying is good.
-Multiplayer system is now working and working well.
-Weather conditions are realistic (Especially rain)
-Offroading is available apart from another racing games.
-It is not that arcade like "The Crew"
-It contains license system. For example, C4, B4, B1 and every license includes different cars.
-Huge map. Good looking roads.
-Offroad roads are very nice and you can feel the nature.
-Sounds are good.
-Interior places are interesting.
-You can buy houses.
-You can buy clothing and you can go to hairdresser.
-You can have plastic surgery :D
-You can place stickers to your car.
-You can wash your car after a good offroad session.

Buy this game. I highly recommend it. If you love cars, you will enjoy this game.
Do not forget it is more funnier with friends, so gather with your friends and create a team.
This game was my birthday gift. I didnt buy that game. But i would buy it if i had the money.
