Test Drive Unlimited 2 finely coiffed while awaiting fixes

, | Games

There’s some grand collecting going on in Test Drive Unlimited 2, which gets open-world caRPGing better than any other game. That’s not much of a compliment, since the only other contender is Fuel (the exquisite Midnight Club LA never did much to encourage open-world exploration and collecting; it was more of a grand playground than an open-world game).

Furthermore, I’ve been unable to get anything multiplayer going, which already makes Test Drive Unlimited 2 a suitable follow-up to Test Drive Unlimited 1. The good news is that I received the following message from Test Drive Unlimited 2 (ingame, not via Twitter):
