    A great race title if you can persevere past the initial frustration. [Mar 2007, p.74]

    This PSP racing port of a port delivers the incredible mileage and deep features of the console version, save some graphical downscaling and minor tweaks. [June 2007, p.80]
  3. Test Drive Unlimited was a bold experiment in seamlessly blending the solo and online racing experience and it worked great on the 360 and PC, and to some degree you get a small taste of this on the PSP, but I wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone looking for the next big thing in PSP online gaming.
  4. 80
    Almost as good as its big brother counterparts. Almost.
  5. The PSP version of Test Drive Unlimited crams in just about every feature found in the PS2 version of the game, including the open-ended online world, and it does so without mucking up the experience.
  6. It all comes down to what you're looking for in a racing game. Test Drive Unlimited for the PSP has the potential to keep you playing for months on end, as long as you don't sit down for extended sessions.
  7. Test Drive: Unlimited wasn’t specifically intended for handheld play and it shows. The wealth of content is staggering and the presentation pristine; however, a sense that this game has been unnecessarily squeezed down to size causes it to miss its potential.

The graphics are sweet, and the handling on the cars is spot on just right. yes the cars do feel a wee on the heavy side, but that is how cars feel when your speeding round a corner..On line mode will keep you amused and so will the size of the island your racing around. If only all racing games were like this, good job EA. Expand

    Let me start off by saying that it's the actually proper PSP version that I am writing about, not the promo or the pc version. As a Let me start off by saying that it's the actually proper PSP version that I am writing about, not the promo or the pc version. As a straight racing game, this rocks, the graphics are sweet some of the best i think i've seen in a race game ( trust me i've played enough). They are sharp and just look really nice, racing around the island is a pleasure to see from the nicely textured scenery to the beautiful looking sky.The handling on the cars is spot on, yes it does fill a little heavy but that just makes more realistic (cars are not made out of paper you know) It feels like you are control and good solid heavy car. The sound is ok, nothing special but nothing to sad neither. I've played lots of racing games (my favorite type of game) and this is one of the best. It's just straight racing no boosting no real modin of the cars ( You can choose colours and wheels and upgrade it ).It may start off a little slow (buying a house and car) but once your into the heart of the game it is a quality straight racing game. Give it a bash in my opinion it's much more refreshing that yet another NFS game and much nicer looking than Burnout (which i like a lot too). This is a racer that will keep me amuzed for ages. From racing around and from fleeing from the police. If you like your racing games to be a racing game with quality graphic and fantastic handling then get this, its worth every penny. Expand

I've played it on 360 and PS2, and in truth, it feels exactly like the PS2 version, save some technical glitches and minor content (boo-hoo I can't get dashboard view- did you say that when GT4 came out?) All in all, with so many cars and miles of road, It's a stellar racing experience, and the world's first CaRPG. Expand

The gameplay is very loose and sometimes you might think I am just driving about for no reason, the races are fairly tough and will keep you driving miles and miles to find the next one... All in all I feel they have crammed as much as they could into a PSP package size and well done to that, but perhaps they lost a few very important parts along they way...shame now if they had merged Race Driver (toca) with this well that would be a fine game indeed... So I give this game 6/10....not good enough Expand

What really Based on prerelease, the game is not nearly as polished as on the 360. Of course, high hopes on such a lesser platform indeed! What really lacked was the interior view and distinguished engine sounds. Everything has been dumbed down and more bland for the handheld limitations... Expand
