STAFF REVIEW of Test Drive (Xbox)

Test Drive Box art Test Drive is a good game for those who like the movie The Fast and The Furious. If you didn't like the movie don't cop this one. Get Project Gotham or something. It's fun though. It's not much to it but it's fun.

In this game you race for slips. You can win cars, money, and respect. It's has a storyline although it's kinda simple - minded. The racing in this game is a mixture of too hard and at times too easy. What I'm saying it's hard as hell to pass another car but when you do you usually win the race. The physics of the game are okay they're not on the caliber of Gotham though. The cars are decent but I think they could have been better.

Of course, this game looks better on the 'box. The background graphics are weak. I have one question; how is it that I can hit a light pole and run it over without skipping a beat but if I hit a little pole off on the sidewalk I come to a dead stop? I don't know if that's visual but I know I hate to see when this happens.

The ability to download your own music is cool. The cars sound fair to midland. The repetitive little comments from the other racers are annoying.

Make the graphics a little tighter, add on to the story, kill the comments, and improve the gameplay. This is a renter. I holla!!!!!
