Pro Driver criticises the handling in Test Drive Unlimited 2

Posted By | On 07th, Feb. 2011

A Test Drive Unlimited 2 event was held at private racing track Pete’s Ridge in Australia and an attending pro driver criticised the handling in the game for being unrealistic. John Boston told Gamespot that “I’ve been thrown into a couple of simulators over the time, but they’re still all very different to a car,” he said. “There’s no doubt about it. Just with the way they behave – especially with the steering side. You really can’t feel the weight distribution.”

He added that “I’ve found a lot of people that play games, they come and drive cars and they find it extremely different. [The hand-eye co-ordination] is a bonus, but it’s just the controls and everything are just a little bit different. One of the main things is just the sudden change of direction,” he explained. “like if you change the direction too suddenly in the game the car might slide, but normally it’s not sliding as much as what a real car would. People aren’t smooth enough when they get into a real life car.”

Despite this the driver did concede that “certainly improving, every day.”
