dont care if gameplay isnt the greatest out there, this game is very unique and there is no other game like it

This game looks pretty generic and bland... Sure it's unique in the "no one else made a game where you just drive around an open world" but that doesn't strike me as a game that should be terribly hard to make work. Yet the first game was pretty bad. I'd rather cruise around Paradise City than drive some poorly simulated car in a poorly rendered, all too blurred environment. With some shallow and poorly modeled ladies in the seat next to me.
I also wish there was a little more variety to the environments. None of them really appeal to me that much. If Just Cause 2 can manage to fit snow, desert, rain forest, city, coast, mountain, and whatever else onto some tropical islande, why doesn't this?

look pal if you dont like the game go play your poorly rendered burnout paradise which i will quote "a lot and i mean a lot of burnout fans were disapointed with burnout paradise", do tell me where you get all your information from as ive been playing TDU1 since it came out on the 360 in 2006 (burnout paradise came out in 2008 so its obviously going to have improved graphics) but when you say poorly simulated cars "tdu is an arcade racer lol" and poorly rendered lol ever heard of a place called spec savers, i think you need to book an appointment there as your eyesight must be pretty bad, and who the hell cruses around on burnout paradise when the idea is to set records for others to beat ect.

burnout and TDU are almost completly different games with the only slight similarity being free roam only in TDU you can go at least 97% where you want where as burnout has invisable barriers everywhere.

also just cause 2 is a sandbox game, why hasnt GTA or Saintrow done the same, rather than trying to compre almost similar games why dont you compare directly similar games to TDU i know the answer already and its simply you cant.

if you think its so easy to make a game like TDU go ahead and create your own game and in maybe a few years time post your hard work on gamersyde so another hypocrite can rubbish all your hard work.

just 1 more thing have you actually been to ibiza or the hawaiian island of oahu, there both near the equator which if im not mistaken is pretty dam warm and as these are real world locations adding snow to ibiza would just look very stupid indeed, burnout paradise is set in a virtual reality, just cause 2 is set in a virtual reality neither BP or JC2's environment exist in real life (maybe they have certain buildings/structures base on real life but in game is essentially make beleive.

When they released the car list, Lamborghini was nowhere to be found. I'm a Ferrari fan to the bone but even I will say that the lack of Lamborghini in a game like this is preposterous. I'd still play this game but that lacking will make many players unhappy.

Also I want the Ferrari 250 GTO. Its my favorite car ever.

sorry but only a few will be upset however the amount of ferraris and among others like the askari A10 im looking forward to this more than ever, even after playing TDU1 for over 4 years driving round in one of the old exclusive cars " a lamborghini gallardo coupe not the SE" im still looking forward to using a carbon aston martin DBS (with the casino), just dont forget that the last game had new cars added like RUF and Edonis so car packs will more than likly build up the cars available and you never know lamborghini might be added later.

are you paid by atari or something? we could compare this to, say, gt5..... graphics, physics, realism, particles, cars......

just cause was an environment similar to TDU whereby you can drive cars..... though ive got no gripe with the environments in tdu, i DO have a gripe with the gameplay, and solely the gampeplay.

you see, there is this blur between arcade and simulation which people are trying to perfect.

i had my hope in tdu back in 06 and produced a racing team/site dedicated to tdu, thats how much i wanted it to succeed.

as soon as it arrived, the physics were immensely flawed and unpredictable, and so was the online element with cars flying all over the shop.

for example, side by side with another car, the car would ACTUALLY be 3 car lengths behind you and not by your side as per on your screen or the other drivers screen.

the scope of this game is great. the idea is great..... well executed? or the "get a house, a wench and a fast car" scene being over milked? ill give it a go and let you know
