There are so many racing games on the market today that it takes something really cool to grab my attention. Test Drive 5 did just this. It is one of those games that you can't wait to show to your buddies. I don't know how many people I dragged over to my desk and made them play a race (usually Scotland... play it once and you will know why). This game is just a blast to play. If you are one of those people that must win every game you play, you are going to in for some unhappy nights because the computer controlled cars will kick your butt and not look back. So far, this is the holiday racing game to buy.
Mega Fun
Hut ab, Accolade! Die Jungs haben wirklich ganze Arbeit geleistet, um aus dem fünften Teil der Kultserie einen absoluten Kracher zu machen. Fangen wir beim Umfang des Racers an: Haufenweise unterschiedliche Modi warten auf den Rennsüchtigen, und auch der Rennstall mit mehr als 23 Fahrzeugen läßt so schnell keine Langeweile aufkommen. (...) Dazu gesellt sich das spektakuläre Fahrverhalten der Fahrzeuge, durch das spielspaßfördernde Driftorgien an der Tagesordnung liegen. Ein weiterer Pluspunkt des Renners sind die relativ intelligent agierenden Gegner, die im Verlauf eines Rennens scheinbar ein Eigenleben entwickeln. Last but not least überzeugt die flotte, detaillierte sowie hochauflösende Grafik-Engine des Racers, die das Rennfeeling zusätzlich anhebt. Negativ fällt eigentlich nur der zum Teil heftige Schwierigkeitsgrad auf, der durch den erst spät zu erkennenden Gegenverkehr noch angehoben wird.

Met Test Drive 5 doet Accolade mee met de beste racegames in dit genre. Hou je van racespellen, en wil je eens wat anders doen dan rondjes scheuren, dan is dit zeker een aanrader.

Test Drive 5 is not without it's faults. Occasionally the graphics are distracting. In fact when entering a tunnel the screen seems to crackle and break up - kind of like the effect you get when watching a really old movie. This aside TD5 is a thrill-a-minute arcade racer that keeps you coming back for more time and time again.
המשחק מנסה למשוך קונים עם כמה שטיקים מקוריים אמנם, אך שלא משנים את השורה התחתונה המכאיבה; זה רק עוד משחק מירוצים לפלטפורמה הכל כך שבעה ממשקי מירוצים הזאת.
Variety is the name of this game, and with all the cars and tracks available in Test Drive 5, you'll be playing it for quite some time. I'd still rather play Gran Turismo because of the better graphics, faster speed, and overall playability, but Test Drive 5 is a good alternative for those looking for something else.
In the end, when you think of all the other games that Test Drive 5 tries to emulate, you're thinking of at least three other racing games that you should purchase before you go for this one. While not a dismal failure by any means, the cheap AI and unbalanced gameplay ensure that Test Drive 5 remains rental material at best.
