Very ambitious free roam driving game, a lot of things went right, a lot went wrong

Issues:
  • Securom 4 machine activation limit, need to deactivate before hardware changes to recycle, otherwise will not restore by itself
  • Periodically crashes the game on windows 10 at certain places & certain time, more frequently on high settings, apparently also caused by DRM, no solution other than retry at lower settings and hope for better luck
  • Launcher takes 1 minute minimum to start
  • DLC paywall for casino & certain premium cars, need to pay both real money and ingame money to obtain those, while most premium cars are nothing special or ugly even, still very irritating without discounted whole package available 5 years later
  • Cars handle like on ice, particularly dreadful in qualifier driving test for championships, where driving assistance is disabled

That said, the franchise is still the ultimate recreational driving experience on PC at the moment, part of the fun came from driving around 2 huge islands with beautiful scenery & dynamic weather to explore every inch of unmarked road on GPS

The other part came from gaming the system and living the life:
  • Using CheatEngine to make billions in seconds & buy all 60 properties all over the map to stuff them full of cars painted to my liking
  • Using DLC unlocker to gain access to casino with practically unlimited funds to waste and keep premium DLC cars
  • Even a simple exploit of buying a normal car and quickly moving curser to DLC car would allow you to buy & keep them until game is launched next time without unlocker. Test drive like its meant to be, unlimited without the arbitrary 2 minute time limit

Server is still up with decent amount of people in unstructured free roam & casino, it gets very fun if there are friends or communities to play with, ranked multiplayer is dead however. Overall very worthy of $5 or a pirate, either that or buy the Crew/Forza Horizon, the original studio is long gone anyway

What to know about this game:
- It's open world, and it's massive.
- Feels like an MMORPG with cars.
- Customizable characters, tune cars, create decals, discover locations, find hidden stuff, buy houses, etc.
- Very immersive for people who like to cruise around in different cars and enjoy the scenery on the islands.
- Freezes on Windows 10, how beautiful.

Okay, this game runs flawlessly on Windows 7, no issues. I upgraded to Windows 10 a few weeks ago and tried playing this again with Nvidia surround everything on high at 5760x1080, it ran and eventually froze up after like 5 minutes. So I alt-tabbed and that did nothing, I had to hit ctrl-alt-delete and select task manager and I tried closing the TDU2 app, did nothing, tried bringing up the task manager, nothing. I actually had to sign out back to the login screen of Windows to stop the game and then log back in. So I followed some threads on here and tried lowering my settings and even ran the game at 1280x720, plays the game for about an hour and then freezes. I even turned on Nvidia adaptive V-Sync as recommended by others, and still nothing :D

My level of pisstocity at this point is through the ♥♥♥♥♥♥ roof since this is literally one of my favorite racing games and now I can't even play the damn game because of this "supposedly superb" operating system. Windows 10 my ♥♥♥. This isn't the only game that acts up either, there are others. It's sad that I have to revert to the painful performance of the PS3 to play a game that I already paid for here on Steam. Yeah I know the game is ancient, but that doesn't justify the bs freezing going on. It would be nice if somebody made a fix for this game to run on Windows 10 without freezing / crashing, but I know it will never happen. With that being said, since I see it happening to a good number of people.... why even sell the game if it doesn't work?

Insta-thumbs down. Such a shame because it's such an awesome game, but now it won't run for sht.
Don't like the thumbs down?? Here's a band-aid.

(funny thing is, I shouldn't be hating the game, but the operating system it's running on)

*EDIT* 7/28/2016
Come to find out it is because of an update built into Windows 10 named KB3086255 which disables Securom and Safedisc or whatever it's called, which is something that a lot of older games and physical discs used. They disabled it because apparently it can be used as a backdoor for hackers, etc. So the only way to get this game to work is to find a way to disable that, which would possibly leave your PC vulnerable, or dual boot Windows 7 to play this game on (AND AVOID THE KB3086255 UPDATE, which is still a risk I guess). I tested the game on Windows 7 again for more than 2 hours and the game ran completely fine, no problems, Nvidia Surround 5760x1080, everything on High, no freezing, no crashing, nothing. For all the ones out there who are having these issues, I hope I saved you a ton of headaches. Still a thumbs down though lol

This is complete ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥t, 20 hours gone into this game, and the savegame got corrupted outta nowhere, and this happens to a lot of people. Still, I'm glad it happened soon, think about the people that lost their save-game at 200+ in-game hours, I'm not restarting the progress, because 5 years later, Atari provides no support and haven't fixed their ♥♥♥♥, and I'm not risking to lose it again

DO NOT BUY IT! The game itself is not bad, but large scale issues like these are completely game-breaking

I want them to put the game BACK ON put the servers back to normal IT WONT HURT A THING! Or at least take it off steam because people are buying it and getting this ♥♥♥♥ when they run it. What is wrong with this! I got reinstalled the game today and I cannot get the game working if it were to save my life! Can you either put the servers back up or make a CRACK that makes it so the game does not look for servers! I WANT THIS TO BE READ AND NOT THROWN OUT LIKE MY COMMENT IS GARBAGE!!! I loved this game and played it for about 756 hours! I want to play more... PLEASE i beg that this gets read and that you fix this and I will be SO delighted if you do so...

Hope & Frustration...

I'm a big fan of driving games, whether it be GRID, Forza, Gran Turismo... you name it I've played it.

Test Drive Unlimited 2 got a lot of bad ratings from companies, but they never understood what it was made for. It wasn't designed for racing, yeah it had a racing storyline on the side, but coming from TDU1, it was all about driving around a beautiful island with your friends calmly and enjoying the scenery.

So if you are looking for a game where you drive to 3 million miles an hour crashing at every corner, go play need for speed. But if you're looking for that one game you actually enjoy doing nothing but driving around on... this is for you.

Most underated driving game of all time.
If I had to choose my most favorite driving game... this would be No. 1.

ps. dont be fooled by the small amount of hours I have on steam, I have over 500 on my xbox.
