Test Drive Unlimited 2 : Xbox 360 Description
Expanded Description Car and driving enthusiasts embark on new automotive adventures across the Mediterranean paradise of Ibiza in Test Drive Unlimited 2. Following the innovative design of the original Test Drive Unlimited, the sequel features a full single-player campaign that can be played offline, but which integrates into a persistent online world, shared with other players. Through mission-based progression, players can develop their characters and expand their car collections for both offline and online play. Players can gain experience points and unlock new missions by competing in races, collecting cars and avatar items, exploring the island, and joining in online activities such as multiplayer races and "car club" guilds.
The driving adventure plays out over hundreds of miles of open virtual highways and byways in Ibiza, and the sequel also includes new roadways and missions in Oahu, Hawaii, the setting of the original game. Most roads are paved, but players may wish to add a few SUVs to their garages to take on the game's two-track challenges. Test Drive Unlimited 2 features showcase cars from a selection of international manufacturers including Aston Martin, Audi, Chevrolet, Dodge, Ford, Gumpert, Lotus, McLaren, Mercedes, Pagani, and others. Some of the rarest automobile models in the game can only be unlocked by members of an online guild that overcomes special multiplayer challenges.
As they prove themselves on the road, both off- and online, players unlock faster and more powerful automobiles for their collections. Similarly, in the single-player story mode, gamers can gradually build a virtual empire of luxury living for their customizable avatars, with mansions, yachts, showrooms, and other opulent amenities. Even with these RPG-style elements for ambiance, however, the focus off the game is squarely on the experience of driving the world's most luxurious high-performance automobiles through scenic and sometimes-challenging locations.
