Summary: Its all right. I mean, they only really have one half decent game mode. Its something called Cop Chase. You're the cop and you need to track down the five bad guys. To "arrest" them you ram them until the bar above the car is empty. Also, while the game is loading, you play pong. You know that first video game that our parents played when they were kids. All in all, if I were looking at it debating to buy it or not, I would put it back on the shelf.
Summary: Up until I met my husband I hated video games and anyone that played them. After I met him I fell in love. Then he introduced me to the world of video games and I fell in love again but this time with the PS2 and so I became a gamer. This was the third game he introduced me to (the first was Tony Hawk Pro skater 4 and the second was Grand Theft Auto Vice City) my only other prior experience was Pac-Man, Space Invaders, Pitfall and Pole Position.
Summary: That's all you need to know about "Test Drive", rubberband AI and Pong. Those are the only two things the game developers put any thought into and it just kills what possibly could've been a fun game. It's been said before and I'm gonna say it again in my review. The load times for this game are outrageous. Really awful. They're so bad that you are given the chance to play Pong while you wait. Sure..
Summary: - After playing Test Drive 5 and 6, i didnt expect much from this game. However, the graphics have changed A LOT! Thank heavens for that, since part 5 and 6 had some of the worst graphics in gaming history. The realisme of the game wasent to impressive, and the "story" mode wasent such a huge knockout. The game is overall a good arcade game for thosse of you who find Gran Turismo frustating and hard.
Summary: First of all, the load time is terrible...Lets get that out of the way.The car physics are bad....i mean "REAL BAD". Have you ever hit another car and sent it flying 40 feet in the air..BACKWARD with no damage to your car?? The Only fun factor is weaving through traffic. The controls are not responsive and attempting a power slide at a hairpin turn almost always results in disaster.
Summary: Strait off, this is one of the best games i have played for PS2. Each car handles differntly, the courses are super realistic, and I couldn't stop playing it! So what if you don't take damage when hitting other cars at 200 mph? It's great to weave in between cars in a classic Shelby Cobra, then race your friends in a sproty big brother, the Shelby Series 1. Take a Viper for a spin. The Cop Chase mode is the best idea ever! Hmm. All this talk of Test Drive.
