Review

"Test Drive Unlimited, quite simply, is awesome." -- X360 July 06

Manufacturer's Description

Test Drive Unlimited is the ultimate automotive experience for car and bike enthusiasts alike. Visit the most sophisticated car and bike dealers to purchase new vehicles or simply take them for a spin. Collect and trade rare performance parts and customise each vehicle to make it one-of-a-kind. Test Drive Unlimited challenges players online to experience the most exotic and fastest vehicles on more than 1000 miles of diverse Hawaiian roads. Gamers win races, challenges, missions and tournaments to earn credits and purchase new cars, bikes, rare performance parts, clothes, apparel, homes and garages.

First and foremost, the game encompasses a lot more than just racing. The player creates a custom avatar that other players will see driving his vehicle the same way a Massively Multiplayer online game. The idea is that the developers wanted the player to be able to put him- or herself into the game, so you can select your clothes, head model, glasses, etc. to create an avatar that looks like yourself, sort of along the lines of what you can do in a lot of recent football and basketball games. Then, when you go out driving, you will see this model in the car driving around in impressive detail.

At home you can change your character's clothes and other attributes to better match your personality. You can even take a spin down to the local clothing store and pick up some new gear. If you've grown tired of your surroundings, you can buy a new house as well.

Further continuing the customization aspects, players will be able to set up their own house and even decorate it with your own car photographs on the walls. The main options: not only saving points; ability to buy a bigger house and garage, with swimming pool, view, etc. That's where you get the news, store your car collection, tweak and tune your cars etc. Other locations include private clubs, public places such as car parks where you meet up with other inline players.

Feel like you need a change in your ride? No problem. Take a spin down to the car dealership and pick up a new car to add to your garage. You can fully customize all of your vehicles and then make a living by selling them online via the in-game auction system. It is very similar to eBay in that other players are able to see what you're selling and buy it via a stock exchange related system. If you set your price too high, you won't get many buyers, but set the price just right and you'll bring home the bacon.

All items you can buy use in-game credits, so don't think you'll be spending any real cash. New aftermarket parts, cars, bikes, clothing and apparel will become available via downloadable content every month.

All set up with trendy gear and clothes, tweaked and tuned dream supercar, membership in a top notch club? Your next officially sanctioned inter-club competition is still 2 hours away? Why don't you just drive down the alley and look for a challenger among the other online players driving now over the island?

ONLINE COMPONENTS: OFFLINE IS ONLINE
Imagine what you would do in your car fanatic fantasy world. That's what TDU delivers online:

  • Wake up, dress up, choose car, tune it, leave your house
  • Drive freely in the streets of Hawaii, and meet other online players in the street
  • Challenge whoever you want for a quick race you choose the goal, the bet, the path, the rules
  • Go to your private club to meet your friends chat, trade, prepare the next race
  • Time for the official competition Watch your friends races on in-game G4 TV while waiting for your race

5.0 out of 5 stars Its need for speed, but it isn't! 14 Sep 2006
By G. Lewis VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Back when the Xbox 360 was launched, EA released another incarnation of their Need for Speed franchise. It was a meek showcase of the power of the Xbox 360 and a suggestive view into the future. Unfortunately it had one big problem. Sure it had lots of flash cars, lots of parts to buy and some impressive visuals, but for the first time in a Need for Speed Underground style game it introduced cops. This wouldn't normally be a problem if they weren't an integral part of the game and 45 minute chases weren't necessary to advance but they were. You could spend 40 minutes successfully avoiding capture then unwittingly drive over some spikes and you'll have just lost 40 minutes of your life you won't get back.

Now, imagine a game with the familiar free-roaming map, lots of flash cars, lots of challenges and cops. Sounds familiar doesn't it? Well, in many ways Test Drive unlimited is very similar, but only in the good bits. Instead of a made-up world you've got a scale representation of Hawaii, with miles and miles of roads, countryside and coastline. You've got a downtown area full of shops, car dealers, real-estate agents and diners. There is so much map to explore you probably couldn't see it all in one day.

At the start of the game you pick your avatar, get on a plane and soon you arrive in Hawaii. From here you rent a car, take a trip to the estate agents to buy your first house, then to a car dealer to buy your first car. After that it is up to you what you do. You earn money by entering races, completing set challenges and challenging other xbox live players as they pass.

If you are connected to the internet, other Xbox live players appear around you whilst they pursue their own single-player game.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent - racing superbly reinvented 21 Jun 2007
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love this game. It has so much to do and the fact that you are doing this whilst cruising around Hawaii has got to be a boon. The thrill of racing a mate online dodging throught the traffic at 200mph and laughing as you jostle each other into a head on collision. True, the physics can be a little bit off, and some of the normo cars on the road can randomly swerve in your way every now and then, but it's superb.

Just finished first in the around the island race. The feeling of racing your fully tuned Pagani Zonda at speeds of ~230mph, with the Maclaren F1, Ferrari Enzo and a Maserati on your tail / bumping you / overtaking you / eventually being beaten by you, a full 120mile race at an average of well over 180mph, it's just WOW! Imagine if you'd crashed at the last minute and all 3, who have been with you all the way, go flying past and you have to race again!!! There were 8 cars in the race and the other 4 were quite a few miles behind at the end.

No other game can surely say that collecting gamerpoints is as fun as on TDU.

BUY NOW.

5.0 out of 5 stars Test Drive Unlimited, the next gen racer! 21 Aug 2006
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Many people have given this game a few bad reviews, but they are mainly basing their views on the demo, which at the moment is a work in progress and mentions at the beginning it will not be the final version and can contain problems.

Anway, apart from that, Test Drive Unlimited is the next generation racing game that has been long anticipated. The game includes 125 vehicles, including cars and motorbikes, countless challenges where you can simply pull up to another racer in the game, roll down your window and talk through your headset to the other person saying, "wanna race?" And you're immediatly in one. Since this game is an MOOR (Massively Open Online Racer) almost all the racers driving around the island are real people that you can chat to.
The setting of the game is 1000miles of open roads on Hawaii's Oahu Island, where you can literally drive anywhere you want in it.

As for the Online part of the game again, as i mentioned before, you can start up a race immediatly after challenging someone. Also in online mode you can chat with friends, auction off your cars, create clubs where all your friends can hang out and compete against other clubs. If you haven't seen any screenshots or videos of the game, I suggest you do, the graphics put into the game follow up with the title of the next generation racer, including interiors made to perfection.

The creators of Test Drive Unlimited want to give you the feel that you are actually on Oahu Island and they try to include small bits of detail that are realistic, including the Ferries that cruise around the Island on the actual paths in real life.

This game is the start of the next generation racer games

5.0 out of 5 stars My first hour... 10 Sep 2006
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
.. in my first hour i choose how i actually look, rented a red lotus, bought 2 customised chevys, took some supermodels shopping, lashed some audi's and vw's, mucked around with sat nav and the car windows, bought a house, got chased by the cops for smashing into a SUV, hooked up the LIVE-ness and started racing and chatting with people all over the world around the fairly huge island of honolulu - flash your lights and away you go.

Graphics are lush and detailed, handling is decent;not quite arcade, not quite simulation, music seemed fine, enjoyed playing it really.

The potential of this to me seems huge and I can see this taking up a large amount of my time. Buy it.

Not bad, starting to show it's age though. It's got some nice cars and some of the sounds are a bit odd compared to the real cars, but it is a good game none the less.
