    Default The Island

    To be Honest I think they've done a good job of making it the same as Oahu.

    Oahu Island Real.

    They did say that they've done the island on the game down to the block the same as the real Oahu island.

    They did well but they haven't done it down to the block as there is a lot of residential areas left out as well as military bases but I guess that parts understandable. They have done a really good job of the main roads though but if you look around the south of the island you can see they have missed a few things out.
    I'm a bit mental.

    The way things are looking with all these next generation games I don't think using the Uk will be that much of a challenge. You know South East of the map where the creator is that is amazing, they've done a great replica of it.

    I think Puerto Rico can be good for TDU2, just google earth it. But for now, I don't think there'll be TDU2, they'll just add to TDU, like cars, more features, ect.

    its accurate for the most part. im from oahu and they have most of the location and are missing some locations. but i'd say its 85% accurate.

    ^^It must be extremely cool to have driven some of the island in real life and then drive it in style with supercars in a computer game . I remember when i went to Nice and then went to play Driver 3 it felt weird because i knew quite a few of the areas
