Game Review:

In the past, the name Test Drive has commonly been associated with a mediocre racing game series that has been pushed to the edge with countless releases that continue to push the mediocre label. The latest releases under the Test Drive label have been Test Drive 6 (check out the review) and Test Drive Off-Road 3 (check out the review), both of which were fairly poor releases. While each game improved slightly on the its predecessor, they didn't improve the game enough to make them yet worth purchasing. These games broke almost every rule that should be followed by all racing games--realistic physics, fun racing modes, and extra features to keep the game fresh and new. Yet again and again, new Test Drive games keep popping up despite the fact that the series has a very bad reputation and there are not a whole lot of fans of the series. Even though the series has been shunned, that doesn't seem to stop Infogrames from bringing out more and more titles under the same label. Well, forget any recollection about the Test Drive series and prepare for a new direction, Test Drive Le Mans is here and takes a turn for the better.
