  1. CNET Gamecenter
    Though crappy brakes take away some of the game's drivability, the superb graphics and special effects still offer a winning combination for DC off-road enthusiasts.
  2. This is a game that takes no prisoners. Brutal, raw, fast, and furious this is racing at its finest.
  3. Da Gameboyz
    This game has an incredible sense of speed, realistic graphics and a whole bunch of tracks waiting for you to conquer.
  4. Daily Radar
    TDVR stands out for a being a fun driving game that places its emphasis on fast action rather than hardcore realism.
  5. If console Rally racing games were gatherings for S&M-catering aficionados (read: racing junkies), then Test Drive V-Rally for Dreamcast is the dominatrix to which you should gratefully submit yourself as its bitch of choice.
  6. Dreamcast HQ
    This thing is a joy with a good wheel. Very responsive, and very realistic.
  7. It's hard to believe that a game this good sells for such a low price while so many other games that suck sell for more
  8. It's an inviting, fast-paced, technical rally game that offers enough replay value and features to satiate any racing audience.
  9. Guess what. It's a damn fine game.
  10. This is the best rally racing game on the Dreamcast, with good graphics, great control and physics, and a ton of options to add to the game's longevity.
  11. 90
    Still not quite as good as Colin McRae Rally, it's pretty darn close.
  12. A damage model makes the game more intriguing, although it is available in only one mode. The graphics suffer from pop-up and collision detection miscues, but overall the game looks good.

    This was the first racing game i played or one of the first and i loved it! It was one of the only rally games i liked and it was replayable.This was the first racing game i played or one of the first and i loved it! It was one of the only rally games i liked and it was replayable. YOU COULD MAKE YOUR OWN TRACKS! I LOVE DOING THAT! The cars were cool and you could unlock better ones. Not just boring new ones that sucked compared to teh standared cars. It also have the first easter egg i found,or glitch i dont know. I was crashing against the side of the road and i found a road that went across the track so i lapped everyone. The track didnt match any of the of track though. Fun game! Full Review »
