Test Drive Unlimited

Test Drive Unlimited
Test Drive Unlimited is an arcade-style racing game - the 9th game of the Test Drive series. It features over 125 licensed sports cars and motorcycles. The terrain is modeled after the Hawaiian island of O?ahu that features some 1000 miles of roads and highways. Test Drive Unlimited is the ninth main installment of Test Drive racing series, one of the longest running racing game franchises. A sequel, entitled Test Drive Unlimited 2, was released on February 8, 2011. In the world of Test Drive Unlimited, the player is able to drive both on-road and off-road in free-roam mode, challenging any real life racers they encounter. The roads are modeled after satellite images of the island of O?ahu. The terrain differs from rainforests and mountains to sandy beaches and Hawaii’s capital city, Honolulu. It is worth noting however, that other built-up areas on the island are not represented. It is possible to drive on small islands outside of the main island, and even drive underwater.

Advantages of Test Drive Unlimited:
  • Low system requirements – In order to run Test Drive Unlimited for your PC, you must have at least the following: Nvidia Geforce 6600 GT Video Card; Pentium 4 2.4 GHz or equivalent Athlon 64 processor; a Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 operating system; DirectX 9.0 compatible sound card; 1 GB of RAM; and at least 8GB of free hard disk space. Looking at the requirements, they are quite easy to acquire considering the availability of parts and software today. However, the low system requirements also result in poorer graphics and audio output from the game. Nonetheless, Test Drive Unlimited is still considered a good game in its own rights.
  • Extendable game – Players can acquire sports cars from various manufacturers by purchasing expansion packs which are commercially available at software stores around the world. The vehicles include a Ferrari 575M Maranello, the AC Cobra 289, the Maserati 3500 GT and the Pontiac Firebird. The megapack adds more than 45 more cars, including the Efijy Concept, the Lamborghini Diablo and the Nissan Skyline GT-R, and an extra motorcycle.
Disadvantages of Test Drive Unlimited:
  • Inconsistent content - The overall visual and audio quality of the game is low due to hardware limitations. Some contents in PSP versions of the game are also missing due to hardware limitations. There is no more space to fit all of these features. However, the PS2 and PSP versions also contain features that the Xbox 360 and PC versions do not have, such as Master Points (points awarded for drifts, slipstreaming and airtime) and Auto GPS (which automatically directs you to a new challenge). Additionally, several cars that are only available in download packs for Xbox 360 and PC are available from the start in the PS2 and PSP versions. There are also more radio stations in the PS2 and PSP versions as they feature many exclusive instrumental tracks in addition to the licensed music.
  • Missing features - The PlayStation 2 and PlayStation Portable versions of Test Drive Unlimited are missing the following features: manual transmission (although transmission is visible in options, it is permanently set to auto); avatar customization; certain vehicles such as Ferraris, Maseratis, Lexus, all motorcycles, and some models of different makes; certain mission types; cockpit views (PSP); NPCs (non-player characters in buildings (PSP); rear-view and side mirrors are not functional (blurred out); some shops, like custom car paint; USB steering wheel support; online cruising (PSP); and the Secret Island (PSP).
