Description

In this installment of the Test Drive series, you get to burn rubber in 28 vehicles from both recent and classic eras, including the classic Ford Mustang, Aston Martin Vantage, and more. You will be doing some wild jumps and having some big contact in these.

Race against other cars in 17 locations ranging from Russia to Hawaii. To further challenge you, they include shortcuts and alternate pathways, as well as police, variable weather effects and civilian cars. A heavy rock soundtrack spurs you on.

Trivia

Bug: The addition of environment mapping is a nice touch, but it shows up on the interior of the Aston Martin--even the driver! I never knew drivers were so shiny...

The game, even the final released "CD-ROM Classics" version, has many bugs. The game does not exit, for one... you need to alt-tab away from it, then kill it.

The game soundtrack features singles from Fear Factory, Gravity Kills, Junkie XL, KMFDM, and Pitchshifter.
