  • Summary: Raw power versus legendary performance in high-impact street racing mayhem. Test Drive is reborn with more racing action and thrills than anything before. Get behind the wheels of over 20 of the hottest exotic sports cars and all-American muscle cars. Rocket through crowded cities, opponents and the law on your tail, in a fast paced test of man and machine. Race against the AI or your friend in two-player mode. You can take the wheel but can you take the challenge? Expand

  1. A ton of fun. [July 2002, p.88]
  2. Weak CPU AI through most of the game is what really holds Test Drive back from being a Ferrari amongst Xbox racing games.
  3. 80
    Sometimes you just want to drive. You want to jump into your car and jam on the accelerator. That’s Test Drive.
  4. 72
    What it offers is sufficient, but it is not going to tear someone away from the likes of "Project Gotham Racing" or "Gran Turismo 3."
  5. Hardcore racing fans might get a kick out of it, but the rest of the crowd would get content just beating it over a couple day rental.
  6. Sadly, automakers have yet to realize that it's better to have one of their cars in a good game than to enforce their no-damage policy and end up with a bad game because of it.
  7. A mixed bag of intense and exciting racing just like the PS2 version. The vast and various stretches of road suffer from a total lack of extras and are beset by unimpressive collision physics and limited camera angles.
