    TDU1 was all exotic sure, but it was also about being able to cruise and chill with friends for hours without getting bored. Forza Horizon doesn't have that reputation yet. Even if it does have amazing roads, handling, and engine sounds if it doesn't have a large enough map and geared towards 'unlimited' gameplay options then it just isn't going to last (just like the first one).

    Round the world race in TDU1: ~45 minutes to complete
    Round the world race in FH1: ~7-10 minutes
    Round the world race in TC: ~4 hours

    If FH2 is 3x the size as as FH1 it's still going to be less than TDU1. Not terrible but it's a bit last decade still. Let's hope the quality makes up for any lack of quantity.

    Ok, since Ryan posted some facts let me too.

    Here's what The Crew and Test Drive Unlimited have in common:
    - huge map located in the USA
    - police
    - you can go everywhere you want
    - interior colors and trims to choose from (hopefully rims as well)
    - tuning
    - radio stations
    - French quality

    So if I understand you correctly, you think The Crew is not a 'spiritual succesor' to the OG TDU because it is based in the USA again, am I right?

    4 hours? Thats incredible. The map must be very large.

    1:1 location was a big factor in tdu.. for me anyway. Although I'd been happier if they hadn't adapted the map for arcade driving (and if tdu had been non-arcade).

    (Some other crew so so's).

    Moneygrabbing via Microtransactions is common in the gaming industry now. Why give people the whole game for free at release day when you can sell it to them piece by piece with later patches. That way they catch two flies with one flap.

    - Keep people motivated by announing more better and cooler cars
    - Grab money

    So much win!

    Not really the already stated that its not going to be pay2win, microtransation are optional everything is possible to unlock via progressing, sure there might be future DLCs but they rather be like Forzas DLCs, not like War Thunder or any other MMO you can think of, after all its not free2play game.

    Sounds like a right approach from Ubi. There are already enough Free2play-Pay2win games on the market.

    If it is like on TDU2 that you can purchase DLC cars for a small amount I can live with that.

    this is the problem, it has become acceptable to pay a full price for a half of a game and then pay more for dlc's.
    Not that consumer can do anything about it, it's basic game theory. Every company does it, no one loses except consumer.

    Yeah thats the problem, we could stop buying but there are always people who will buy it just like they buy EA products no matter how broken they are.

    The only difference with TC is the cars take forever to model because of all the mechanical parts that also need to be modelled AND animated.

    Given how man people here were willing to pay to keep TDU1 alive you'd think this wouldn't be such a massive issue this time around.
