So it's basically along the same lines as its predecessor, and it could do with a few of its raggedy edges clipped, but Test Drive II on the Amiga is simply brilliant. The view from the windscreen, when beating a hasty path up one of the many twisting, winding roads, is particularly effective. Sadly, the outside objects, such as trees, do tend to go into spasms when travelling at low speeds, but then again this is a game where acceleration is not only a lot of fun, but a necessity, so less than 60mph is a rarity. So while it won't get you through your driving test, it will provide some superb entertainment.

Damit die Motivation nicht so schnell nachläßt, hat Accolade eine Reihe von (teuren) Zusatzdisketten mit neuen Autos und Landschaften herausgebracht. Nicht zuletzt deshalb ist für mich dieses Game, obwohl es schon über ein Jahr auf dem Markt ist, immer noch eines der interessantesten Computerspiele überhaupt!
When Test Drive first introduced everyone to life in the fast lane some fourteen months ago (about the same time the original Crazy Cars appeared coincidentally) people started to sit up and take notice. The future of gaming, nice graphics, lovely touches and finishing pointed to a day when all games would be this polished.
Test Drive had one major failing – it left out any long term appeal. Its gameplay was limited to trying to keep the car on the road and in one piece for as long as possible. Its sequel does not look to have improved this much.
Mächtig verbessert wurde der Sound: Fetziges Motorengeheul dröhnt aus dem Lautsprecher. Autorennfans ist The Duel - Test Drive 2 auf dem Amiga zu empfehlen.
