    A consuming driving experience that's not the most exciting, but makes up for it with its mellow side. [Mar 2007, p.56]

    A great game where the multiplayer mode is an integral part of the gameplay, rather than just a bonus add-on.

    An incredible accomplishment on the PS2. While it has lost a few features compared to the 360 version, most of the concept and game has remained intact, and remains enjoyable to play.
  4. Compared only to PS2 racers, Test Drive Unlimited is a really impressive title, worthy of a purchase. The content is deceivingly deep and the replay value for fans of the title is excellent.
  5. A few aspects of Test Drive Unlimited have been lost in translation from the Xbox 360 to the PlayStation 2, but even still, the game is an impressive piece of online-racing technology.

    Impressive, immense and pretty but somehow it fails to achieve greatness due to shortage of a variety of high-speed thrills. [Feb 2007, p.72]
  7. It's a great game for cruising, and if you're looking for something to mellow out with after a hard day it's a great game. Hardcore race fans will want to look to other titles.

    I live in in the 50th state, and I thought this game would be fun to play and watch since I live here in Hawaii. Though it's not I live in in the 50th state, and I thought this game would be fun to play and watch since I live here in Hawaii. Though it's not accurate in the environments, as an expansive racing game it's fun! I like being able to drive anywhere around the island, whether you wanna race or just cruise around the landscape! If you live in Hawaii, this will be more entertaining. Collapse

Its not a This game is a great driving game, and a pretty damn good racing game. It has an expansive environment with lots to do and see. Its not a good hardcore racing game, because there isnt enough to do with your cars, but its the best overall driving game ive played. I gave it only an 8 because of the lacking features on the ps2 version. I would have loved the motorcycles and more cars like it has on xbox. Also, in multiplayer mode, its hard to find races because there arent that many people on. Expand
