  • Summary: Having the fastest car doesn't guarantee you success in Test Drive: Eve of Destruction. If you can take out your opponents while minimizing damage to your own vehicle, you'll be the last one standing in 25 events, including Demo Derby, Suicide Race, and Figure 8 Race. Choose from more than 12 racing venues and a variety of vehicles, such as buses, hearses, and ambulances, and fight to the finish in single-player races or split-screen multiplayer battles. Expand

  1. The best of the Test Drive series and a personal favorite. The game is realistic in execution. The music rocks. The gameplay is a blast.
  2. You might want to keep a baseball bat handy to maintain order if more than four people are in attendance, as nobody will want to give up a controller and there is always a high probability of violence ensuing over who gets to play next.
  3. 85
    If you get three other players involved and a nice warm bottle of Mad Dog or a fifth of Ripple for the discerning 'neck, you’re looking at days of game play.
  4. The lack of online play knocks this down the list of racing games coming out this year, but if you find yourself playing a ton of split-screen, this game is right for you.
  5. Eve of Destruction has all the twisted metal action fans of vehicular carnage will love, but its repetitious races and awkward controls just hold back what could have been a great demolition derby game.
  6. What absolutely kills the replay value, however, is the lack of Xbox Live play.
  7. The problem is, driving crappy cars around dirt tracks as low speeds isn't very much fun at all. [Nov 2004, p.97]
