well ill start with what makes this game irritating. Doing one race 45 times becouse you get taken out 5 feet from the finish line by polls, cars, opponents, box's, and just about anything else you can think of.
this game is a decent racer at best. it is quite fun to a point, but its longevity isnt too long. Story mode was quite good. It made me want to finish becouse i wanted to find out the outcome of the story. single player races are your usual fair. multiplayer rocks except that its way to easy to wipe out in this game.
i think the best part of this game is the selection of cars. theres a very good mixture of muscle and rice. sure to please anyone.
in the end i would say if you dont have rallysport get that, or maybee get burnout. if you have those 2 awlready and you cant wait for need for speed hot pursuit 2 then pick up test drive.

Graphics ----> Sub par....
Physics ----> Below Sub Par

Don't expect Rallisport or PGR if you buy this one, I would say rent it first...

Yea, bored to death.....Test Drive was bad since Playstation and Dreamcast....I can't believe Infogrames made 6 of them~!~! And this is the first one on Xbox....I just hope they don't make 5 more for the Xbox...

Dreamcast's Test Drive 6...

Test Drive for Xbox is probably the worst driving game I've ever played..maybe the worst game period. I couldn't believe how bad it was. It's not fun, it's not fast, the physics are poor, you can't see in night races...it's just awful.

worst game ever might be a bit much cause test drive 4x4 might hold that title, or Bruce Lee for that matter. I can't believe some people actually like that game. I'm convinced it must be the developers posting on here saying how good it is...
