    So does this game really suck or something? I've been wanting to pick it up the last couple of days but no stores have it in stock. They initally said it was gonna be released on March 20 then the 22nd and they STILL don't have it in stock.

    Is it worth buying once it does?

    i had fun with it, its fun going cruising with friends and going around the whole island as a group. the racing isnt the greatest though.

    The open ended world with people driving around all the time was neat but the core racing was pretty weak.

    Hmm...re-thinking this now. $50 bucks is alot to spend on a mediocre game.

    Stores still don't have it here - guess its not a big shipping item.

    it's not that it's bad, because it isn't. It's just not a very realistic racing game. It's not so much like an arcade handling game but the handling just feels empty.

    It's not bad. Less arcade than the recent Need For Speed series, but the ability to roam around, race, and buy different cars is pretty fun. The controls aren't that great though :hs:.

    Great game IMO. I haven't played any other recent game for such an extended period of time. I usually get bored of games fast, but I still play TDU.

    I care for no AV's.
    TDU is fun. Graphics are pretty amazing. Others driving around is also fun. But in total, its just an OK game.

    Argh...looks like I can't buy this even if I want it. No stores have it here and just doing random searches show it in no Best Buy or Future Shop stores in Canada - did it get banned here or something, can't figure why its not out yet?!

    Update: Did some Best Buy searches in the US too, VERY few stores have it - even though it says it got released on the 22nd. Something musta screwed up with Atari shipping I guess.

    You could rent it but it isn't a full priced game either so buying wouldn't be that bad. I really enjoyed it and put about 3000 actual miles on my cars. I got my money's worth out of the game. They did a patch shortly after it came out that changed the bike handling and then I lost interest.

    it was way too easy to make money. once u get far enough in you can do like the same race over for a fuckton of money. unless they patched that. havent played in quite awhile
