ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The graphics are generally of a high quality, with each car's interior being particularly well drawn. Scrolling is a bit on the poor side though as the on-coming traffic tends to move rather jerkily. The sound is tremendous with screeches and whining engines throughout. Just sink into the leather and absorb the game's sheer driveability.

If you are an Amiga fan—or a fan of early pseudo 3D games in general—you'll probably enjoy wasting an afternoon with Test Drive like I did. Otherwise, your mileage may vary.

The Games Machine (UK)
The colours used are sparse, considering what the Amiga is capable of, and they do not improve much as the game progresses. The sound FX of engine notes in different gears and squealing tyres as you take sharp bends and dips in the road add excitement and give a reasonable impression of high-speed driving. But lastability is a fragile commodity with there not being enough to do in the game.

Happy Computer
Die Strecke ist leider nicht sonderlich abwechslungsreich. Vom Gegenverkehr einmal abgesehen, sieht man auf der mit Kurven gesegneten Straße herzlich wenig. Ähnliches gilt für die Spielmotivation: Am Anfang ist man regelrecht begeistert, doch wenn man die Strecke einmal ganz geschafft hat, beginnt das große Gähnen. Die Amiga-Version glänzt mit tollen Effekten, aber spielerisch vermisse ich eine doppelte Portion Abwechslung.

Tempolimit? Nein danke; mit Bleifuß und PS-Power geht man bei "Test Drive" auf Punktejagd. Wollten Sie schon immer mal am Steuer eines unbezahlbaren Traumwagens sitzen? Ob Lamborghini Countach oder Porsche 911 Turbo, fünf Wagen dieser Klasse stehen zu Ihrer freien Verfügung bereit - vorausgesetzt, man hat den richtigen Computer und "Test Drive", eine neue Rennsimulation.
