Test Drive Unlimited (PlayStation 2)

 

Late last year, Atari and developer Eden Studios released Test Drive Unlimited for the Xbox 360. Purportedly the first "massively open online racing" game, Unlimited provided you with a wide-open setting (the Hawaiian island of Oahu), a myriad of slick...

Last year Atari released one of their most ambitious games yet, a racing game for the Xbox 360 that combined the fun of a single-player campaign with the unpredictability of an online world. Test Drive Unlimited was not perfect, but thanks to its...

While some content had to be cut out of this port, Test Drive Unlimited on the PlayStation 2 is a shockingly enjoyable racing game. The island is big, there are plenty of events to race, and there are more cars in this game than you will know what to...

With Atari moving the focus of the Test Drive series to next-gen consoles, the publisher has handed off developing duties for the PS2 version to Melbourne House, a studio familiar with racing games. The Xbox 360 version of this game was a critical...

I have always wanted to go to Hawaii but with the cost of a ticket and the length of a flight from Boston I doubt I'll be going any time soon. Because of that I suppose a digital trip would be my best bet and in that regard Test Drive: Unlimited has a...

If you own a PlayStation 2 and want a solid racing experience Test Drive: Unlimited is about as good as you're going to get with the last generation console. The island of Oahu is a beautiful place and it's full of street races to partake in whether...

Test Drive Unlimited embraces a philosophy of open gameplay, choosing to let you drive around a Hawaiian island at your own pace and discover what you want. There are races to be won and extras to find, but this is less important in the grand scheme of...

The online integration is fantastic ; Beautiful Hawaiian island for your driving pleasure

The racing just isn't dynamic compared to what else is on the market ; The impossible-to-dent cars take you out of the experience ; The surrounding world just isn't that interesting

It's a great game for cruising, and if you're looking for something to mellow out with after a hard day it's a great game. Hardcore race fans will want to look to other titles.

A massively open online/offline hybrid racer set in Hawaii? Far worse things have happened.

Blurs the line between online and offline play; relative ease of navigating; solid and user-friendly graphics

Lack of character options and customization; some questionable driving physics; AI can be iffy

The greatest showroom on Earth?

Damn sexy cars ; Boggling number of races ; Owning homes

Irritating five-o ; Island's a little too big sometimes ; Might turn off sim buffs

Test Drive Unlimited Preview

 

If you think the Need for Speed series is long-running, there is a racing franchise that has been around way before EA's creation landed on the 3DO -- and that would be Test Drive. If you remember playing Test Drive back on the Atari or Commodore 64,...

nbspBoth versions of TDU, including the PC release, will be available on February 20th. As far as a PlayStation 3 version that had appeared on EBGames'/GameStop's listings a number of times, well it seems to have disappeared. Hopefully Atari's still...

TVG drives the open roads of Oahu and asks whether developer Eden Studios could be Atari's saviour...

What Test Drive delivers in its multiplayer functionality is what Need for Speed Underground failed to achieve three years ago. Whilst it may not be quite as polished in some respects as Bizarre's PGR3, the open structure of Test Drive Unlimited has...
