Does Not Improve Game Play, Lots Of Glitches, Fels Like A Beta Version, Difficult Interface
Stunning Graphics, Large Selection Of Cars, Improved Game Play, Improved Network Play
Test drive is the first racing game of its Kind. Im sure there is a term for it but Im going to call it a massively multiplayer Online racing Simulation (MMORS). This Review will be based off of the things I have seen in the multiplayer portion of this game. I also want to note it is also kind of difficult to get your online account started. Bye now you have done named it got online and started a new career. You start off the Game at an airport where you will begin your Online Profile, Here you will select from either Male or Female characters. There are also A few different models to choose from when selecting your character. You will automatically be sent on a mission to get a house and a car. After doing so you will have to do your 1st race. Now that you have finished your 1st race you are free to go do as you want. The Game is a really nice game but requires of pretty good system to play it. The game has Missions that range from racing to delivering cars. There is also an option to buy clubs and future downloadable content. The game is almost a prefect port of the 360 version of the game. But the PC Version has received no patches too date. The game is in very bad need of a patch as it has loads of bugs and glitches the just ruin the game play. When your online if you come up on people with a lower connection there car jumps around. Not much Atari could do about that. But having People from all over the world playing on one server makes for lots of lag, But If you can get past the entire lag and the glitches there is a really great game here. There is not much of a story line built in this game oh, and the sounds are not the great. But they are ok. The game gives you the ability to drive all over the island of Oahu. There are loads of people online but you can only see one person at a time. The controls are fairly hard, you Will need a racing wheel or joystick/game pad to play this game decently. Steering with the keyboard is way too hard. The game also includes loads of views for you to use while driving. But at points when laying the game you may feel like what is the point of this game Well If you are looking for a game to Race against other People and have a great offline story mode this game may not be for you. You Can Race in the game against other people just to clear it up but it wont be like your traditional racing simulation. If youre looking for a game with virtually no boundaries then this game is for you. But there are still some issues with this game that when patched this game will be loads better. My Recommendation: If you like driving/racing games, Buy this game. You will find it will be fun and worth the money.
