Test Drive Unlimited 2 might be lacking in some areas, but this is one instance where the sheer quantity of features prevails since their structure is thoughtful enough to make this game more than just a lazy vacation.

Eden Games has successfully built upon the solid foundations laid by the first TDU for Test Drive Unlimited 2, creating a genuinely inviting and gratifying racing title, online or offline. It surpasses its predecessor with fantastic visuals, hundreds of extra miles of roads to speed along and more cars and races than you can shake a gearstick at.

The title of this RPG/racing game fits nicely. While driving through one of the biggest open worlds we've seen, the mountains of unique challenges and items really do feel unlimited, most of the time. TDU2 is an incredible toy box full of racing, exploring, car collection and the lifestyle of the fast and famous. But the rough start has probably made the rest of the game's experience a lot less than it could have been.

The Telegraph
Another brave and ambitious effort from the consistently inventive Eden Games, then, but another flawed gem. If anything, Test Drive Unlimited 2 teaches us that it’s not just the open world you create, but what you do within it that really forms its identity. A shame then, that despite coming across like the coolest guy at the party, deep down, TDU2 is still not really sure who it is.

As a whole, Test Drive Unlimited 2 isn't nearly as exciting as it had the potential to be. The concept of a racing game that effortlessly integrates multiplayer looks great on paper, but the execution just doesn't cut it. While there is an incredible amount of content available here, the lack of finesse and polish will turn some gamers away. If you enjoyed the original, then chances are you will still like this release, but sadly this isn't the kind of driving game that will make your heart beat out of your chest.

De droom van Eden Games om de beste racegame te maken die er is, is niet in vervulling gegaan. De ontwikkelaar moet juist eens flink wakker worden geschud, want Test Drive Unlimited 2 vertoont duidelijk nog wat mankementen. Online is er ontzettend veel te beleven en het is goed dat Eden Games hier dan ook de nadruk op legt. Kijk je echter naar het racen, waar het toch om draait in een racegame, dan merk je als snel dat dat nog een stuk beter kan. Het is dan ook jammer dat de ontwikkelaar niet evenveel tijd in het racen heeft gestopt als hij heeft gedaan met het online gedeelte van Test Drive Unlimited 2.

The abundance of activities and collectables keep play from feeling like a grind, since there's always something different to do if you tire of one thing. TDU2's not quite got everything--it's a shame the streets are free of Ibizans, and there are no motorbikes to be had. (In addition, a corrupt Xbox 360 savefile might halt your progress, as it did ours.) Nevertheless, the freedom of open-road driving, backed by beautiful landscapes, is like few other games, and the huge, shared world of races and missions can be as addictive as a good MMORPG. The catch is that TDU2 isn't best in any class; it doesn't do any one thing better than a number of more specific, less expansive driving games. It does do an awful lot, though, and won't be kept down by its faults--which are hardly few, but aren't deal breakers either.

With development teams like Criterion and Black Rock constantly raising the bar, it's unfortunate to see a racing game as passionless as Test Drive Unlimited 2. Ambitious map size and amazing architecture (seriously, some of the purchasable homes are incredible) can't make up for lackluster racing.

Ein Hersteller, der seinen Fokus auf das Mehrspieler-Erlebnis legt, aber dann auch nach fast einer Woche immer noch nicht die Server stabil zum Laufen bringt? Nein, das darf nicht sein! Wer dagegen ohnehin lieber abgetrennt von der Online-Welt seine Runden dreht und den meisten Spaß beim Erkunden oder Häuserkauf hat, bekommt hier ein ähnlich gutes Paket wie vor fünf Jahren, denn inhaltlich hat sich bis auf die verbesserte Steuerung ähnlich wenig getan wie auf der Technik-Seite. TDU 2 hat durchaus seine Augenblicke, in denen Qualität und Fahrspaß aufblitzen. Die grottige deutsche Lokalisierung trägt allerdings zu keinem Zeitpunkt etwas dazu bei und markiert neben dem Online-Debakel einen weiteren Tiefpunkt dieses Nachfolgers, der in vielerlei Hinsicht zu billig für ein aktuelles Vollpreisspiel wirkt!
