If your a Racing fan you will enjoy this game

by ps2junkie@sbcglobal.net on 10/15/2006

This is an great concept in the racing game genre. The massive mulitplayer online racing world is a good concept, the product just falls short on delivery. It is quite difficult to find a full field of racers to goto one race online and you cannot challenge friends to ranked online races. What I really enjoy is the depth of single player modes to full fill, and I really like how anybody can create single player challenges and anyone may choose to try and beat them. I really enjoy playing this game, even if you just want to drive around and see Hawaii, it's fun to put on your favorite soundtrack, and burnup the streets of Oahu. Graphics are nice, and the cars control quite well. What I really liked about the sound, is that each car in the game seemed to have it's own unique engine sound. If your a fan of racing games, you will like this, as it really breathes fresh air into the racing genre. There are alot of single player tasks to complete and with the ability to buy houses and a very long list of cars, you will have hours of game play to look forward to. I am most looking forward to Atari and Microsoft putting out the first official pack of downloadable content.

Review Set in Oahu, the heart of the Hawaiian Islands, you will race in the very first M.O.O.R. or Massively Open Online Racing title. What this means that there is not a need for mode changes, loading screens, or main menu kickbacks in order to play online. You may drive freely through the land of Oahu completing single player tasks, then instantly jump in a race against a real life opponent online either in a one on one challenge or by joining them in a numerous amount of multiplayer races...Even more impressive is the fact that the game is set in real mileage (or kilometers depending on your region) which means you may be in for a very long ride if your race spans over 100 miles...For me, this title is a must buy for racing fans, arcade and sim alike, as it is the best of both worlds.

Review Test Drive has always tried to reinvent itself with each new iteration, but with Test Drive Unlimited Eden Studios and Atari have actually redefined the racing genre and set the bar so high that it might be some time before anyone else can follow in their tire tracks...Test Drive Unlimited is a bold new vision for what has become a rather stale genre. I had high hopes for this same multiplayer concept with EA attempted it with Motor City Online, only to watch that fail miserably. Now Atari gets it right, by combining a solid solo racing game with a substantial multiplayer component and blending them together so well you can't really tell when you are playing online or off...There is truly no limit to the enjoyment and endless challenges you will find with Test Drive Unlimited.
