Ahh PGR 3 & 4..great memories! Love the PGR series and Bizarre Creations (RIP).
TDU was a solid but flawed gem; TDU2 was a rushed disaster thanks to Atari. Loved crusing around despite the car handling being awful.
Yes, TDU2 was trashy yet fun. There was something nice about the feeling of just cruising, driving for the enjoyment of driving despite the limited physics. Will be interesting to see what the new version comes out like.
