Summary: Do not listen to these horrible reviews. Ferrari Racing Legends is a sheer driving pleasure. Slightly Mad Studios have done a fantastic job with the driving physics and making the game both accessible and exciting, as they did with Shift. The car roster is huge, and has a lot of variety too. There are some great tracks here from classics like Monza and Silverstone to favourites like Nordschleiffe and Mugello GP.
Summary: Who doesn't like Ferrari? Well, i'm a Ferrari fan. I've been waiting for this game for a long time. Finally i got it for PC and for my surprise: I didn't buy a racing game, but a boat racing game! The game should have called: "Test Drift: Ferrari Racing Legends" But even for drifting this game would be a failure. Because of the famous "input lag" (known in Shift and Shift 2) It's so absurd it tends to be ridiculous...
Summary: As a huge car enthusiasist, I was quite looking forward to this game, but when I saw the developer "Slightly Mad Studios", I almost didn't even want to start the game. And boy, was I right ! I never liked Shift games due to its driving model, which is nowhere near arcade nor simulation. It was always like driving a snowmobile.
Summary: After many months of delays it finally gets released on PC and I can assure you it wasn't worth the wait. Controls are so fidgety and I can understand purists love a challenge in handling but even on the easy settings it's unbearable in modern and silver campaign to complete the achievements. After much frustration i just put this aside as the enjoyment faded fast.
Summary: The game deserves much better reviews. This is not an arcade game (although it is not that difficult to drive). The graphics are nice. The interface is clean. Very positive experience overall. Giving 10 to balance the unfair reviews. Would give it solid 8.
Summary: A small title that will be quickly overshadowed by the competition. For racing fans, however, this is a nice warm up lap until Most Wanted comes out. The game handles well and boasts some very nice car models. Unfortunately, only patient gamers will experience the real fun the game has to offer due to its slow start. Fans of the Shift series should definitely give this one a try, just don't expect a genre defining experience.
Summary: I love racing games. However, I'll be honest: I'm not the biggest Ferrari fan. (I root AGAINST them in Formula 1, and I prefer Lamborghinis, Lotuses, and American muscle.) Therefore, I thought for a while before purchasing this game, as it's exclusively focused on putting historic and modern Ferraris through their paces on racing tracks. Plus, I prefer open-world racing games, or at least those that FEEL like open-world (Need for Speed: The Run).
Summary: "Test Drive Ferrari Legends" is the newest game in the Test Drive franchise, being produced by Slightly Mad Studios (NFS: Shift 2), being more oriented to simulation, on a closed track. The game has 2.14 GB of data, not having too much content. The graphics are excellent in the cars aspect, and we observe the details richly preserved, both on the outside and inside, with a vision of the instrument panels among other things: but the tone is somewhat artificial and colors...
