Interesting stuff, so there will be more roads but on a smaller island (Ibiza is about half the size of Oahu I think). I just hope they make the roads a bit more smoother and work on the "hardcore driving mode" to make it usable with the supercars as well.
Smoother roads?

Come on Agent, have you ever DRIVEN in Oahu

TDU's roads were far smoother than in Oahu in actuality

I still loved the game though. Absolutely fantastic experience. Can't wait for the new one

Eh, that might work out though, it sounds kind of fun! Look forward to this game, like the first one a lot. Hopefully they've been working on it for the last 3-4 years and it's just about ready to come out!

Noo I wish, I didn't have a chance to make a vacation there, but I certainly have seen some photos with really scary looking roads over there. I don't mind bumps at all as long as they have enough polygons, thats basically what I meant with "smoother".

The new one should be quite interesting, Ibiza is a pretty cool island but I was a bit surprised that they picked it. I wonder if they will implement any "stereotypes" of that island, because if that will be the case it will be pretty damn hilarious!

20 minutes for the fastest car to get across the island?

I wonder how many hours to drive around along the coast

I know it took almost an hour to go around in the first one.

Across island == usually shortest route.

On Oahu, I think highway 3 runs up the middle. On Ibiza, there is a straight cut in the middle going north to south so I presume that would be 20 minutes.

It would take a lot longer travelling the other routes and, if you don't have the fastest car and are not driving balls to the wall, you will take a LOT longer.

20 minutes is plenty of time

Also, there are LOTS of twisty roads on the map. I can't wait to have a go

Better have proper G27 support. Like 720+ degrees of rotation, and a working clutch.

I stop too often to take pictures in Oahu to time myself

Plus the speed limit is like 35 MPH legally most roads
