Test Drive Unlimited 2
Test Drive Unlimited 2 is an open-world racing game, and the tenth installment in the Test Drive series which began on the PC in 1987, and a sequel to the 2006 Test Drive Unlimited. The game takes place on Ibiza, an island off the coast of Spain, and on the island of Oahu in Hawaii. Players select vehicles from four categories: asphalt cars, SUVs, classic cars, and motorcycles. The unnamed player-character competes in a series of tournaments, with the hope of ultimately winning the Solar Crown. The game also includes both co-op and competitive online multiplayer.
Test Drive Unlimited 2 received lukewarm reviews, with an average score of 70%, praised for its online play, open-world free roam, and overall fun, though criticized by some for its story, vehicle handling, and bugs.
This is a high 3-star rating, as it's extremely difficult to unlock many of the online trophies legitimately. However, if you able to organize some boosting partners, the difficulty rating could be brought down to a low 3-star, though will still require a fair bit of time and skill. Some of the offline trophies can be quite challenging, such as claiming the licenses. Also, reaching level 60 will take up a fair bit of time.
Expect roughly 130-150 hours to reach the Platinum with boosting, and far longer if you're attempting the online trophies legitimately.
The roadmap for Test Drive Unlimited 2 can essentially be broken into four stages: completing Ibiza, completing Oahu, completing the online trophies, and mop-up.
We recommend starting in Ibiza and unlocking all access to everything for completing the championships. This means start by driving down every road, completing all the missions, finding all the wrecks, and all 20 viewpoints. Then, work on earning all the licenses. And finally, complete all the events, which means championships, duels, and finally the cup.
Once Ibiza is done, you can head over to Oahu, where we'll rinse and repeat the process. Unlock all access to everything, get your licenses, and complete all the events.
With that done, you can head into online and unlock the 14 online trophies. These aren't particularly difficult if boosted, though can be a real pain if you're attempting to do this legitimately. Check out the boosting forums under our Links tab if you're shy of online players.
With all the online trophies unlocked, you can return to offline and mop-up any trophies you may still be missing. Most likely, this will include the Level 60 trophy.
