I enjoyed myself playing this game tonight.
1. I accepted that it is arcade car handling.
2. I've got my dfp wheel setup properly (360 degrees profiler).
3. I've learned to brake hard at corners and throw the car into the corner.
After the dirt driving school the feeling of the range rover in that license test was so awful I was ready to give up on this game. But after the driving school I was driving to a destination on my gps. GPS took me through a long dirt road. It was night...it started raining...there was thunder. Driving down that dirt road at night during a thunderstorm was fun.
Also, it does provide the one bit of fun that the original TDU offered. Driving in traffic. Passing cars by driving on the wrong side of the road and barely avoiding an oncoming car. Especially fun at night when you see headlights coming at you.
I'm actually looking forward to playing this again tomorrow.
Your mileage may vary. I have a high tolerance for bad games
Oh, be sure to keep your car clean
