ACE (Advanced Computer Entertainment)
The gameplay is surprisingly similar to the Amiga version. Graphics are chunky but well-animated to give a good car driving game. Still short of lasting interest though.
ASM (Aktueller Software Markt)
Das Spiel ist mit keinem anderen Programm dieser Gattung zu vergleichen, da hier ein bisher nie dagewesener Realitätsgrad erreicht wird. Dieses Spiel darf auf keinem Fall in lhrer Programmsammlung fehlen, es sei denn, Sie besitzen einen der Wagen!!!
The Games Machine (UK)
Test Drive has its faults, not least of which are the limited gameplay and lack of track variation, but as a first person racing game it's well worth considering for purchase.
All Game Guide
Despite its flaws Test Drive is a cool game for a short time. Replay value is limited since there is only one road to drive each of the cars on. One other problem is that the instructions say that you only get five chances. However I have received more than five at times so I have to assume you get more when reaching checkpoints or maybe it has something to do with your point totals.
An unusual driving simulation let down by average graphics, poor sound and ultimately repetitive gameplay.
Power Play
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.
