Overall I would say that this game is good for a graphically very nice arcade racer (see the shots), but it doesn't even touch the toes of The Need for Speed on any part of racing games (gameplay, graphics, features, extra's, ...).

Безумно сложно вступать на хрупкую почву размышлений на тему “А хороша ли эта игра и стОит ли в нее гамиться?”. Но регламент и требования масс, ничего не поделаешь. Понимаете, TD6 насквозь вторичен, условен и, разумеется, не несет в себе никаких новаторских идей (вы ошиблись жанром, если всерьез хотели их). Но для него характерно какое-то необъяснимое ощущение веселья, пронизывающего игровой процесс.

Einst war die Test Drive-Serie eine Legende, doch seit einigen Jahren setzen die Entwickler auf Masse statt auf Klasse: Viele Autos und viele Strecken sollen von der kaum vorhandenen Technik ablenken. Mit einer riesigen Anzahl aufregender Fahrzeuge und etlichen neugestalteten Strecken könnte Test Drive 6 jede Probefahrt bei Ihrem Autohändler überflüssig machen. Leider scheitert dies an einem allzu schlichten Fahrmodell, das kaum Unterschiede zwischen den einzelnen Wagentypen und nicht einmal ein Gefühl für die eigene Geschwindigkeit vermittelt.

De zoveelste telg in deze arcade racer reeks borduurt weer verder op het voorgaande. Saai!

Mimo iż Test Drive 6 swoje lata już ma, to nadal potrafi zadziwić grafiką i wykonaniem. Samochody wyglądają ładnie i choć nie są superszczegółowe, to jednak na pierwszy rzut oka wiemy, z jakim modelem mamy do czynienia. Nie zapomniano także o takich detalach, jak światła odbijające się w mokrej nawierzchni, czy też dym z opon pojawiający się podczas zerwana przyczepności lub ostrego hamowania. Pewne zastrzeżenia można mieć do animacji i wykrywania kolizji, bo w pewnych momentach mogą występować pewne przekłamania. Nie zdarzają się co prawda często, ale od czasu do czasu nasz pojazd potrafi przeniknąć przez jakiś obiekt.

Посредственные гонки с отличной музыкой. Нет оригинальности, есть подражание NFS: HS. Нет Игры, есть Fear Factory.

Ach, waar is de tijd dat Test Drive stond voor kwaliteit en uren racefun? De neerwaartse spiraal dient omgebogen te worden jongens, want dit kan echt niet meer.

Once again, Test Drive 6 has failed to escape from the many problems that have kept this long-running series from reaching its potential. Interface and gameplay limitations are the main culprits here, with the absence of multiplayer competition, the jerkiness of the animation, and the weak support for input devices particularly glaring deficiencies. This has not been the best year for conventional car racing releases, so there are not many better just-released alternatives available this holiday season; but unless you are desperate I would wait until next year.

GameStar (Germany)
Test Driver wirkt von Jahr zu Jahr unaufregender: das Fahrverhalten abenteuerlich, die Autos resistent gegen jegliche Schäden, der neue Karrieremodus schlecht designt. Blöderweise setzt Need for Speed 4 das gleiche Konzept auf einem grafisch und spielerisch weitaus höherem Niveau um. Die Test-Drive-Serie offenbart mittlerweile eine Seelenverwandtschaft zu Lada und Trabant. Auch die kauft man höchstens aus Mitleid oder Sammlerleidenschaft.

However, in the end, Test Drive 6 is just a mess. Its multiple flaws, poor graphics, and boring gameplay take away all the fun. While the high-speed racing can be entertaining for a while, particularly with some of the faster cars, you'll almost always run into a problem with gameplay that spoils your enjoyment.

Einst war Test Drive innovativ und erregend, inzwischen aber fährt man in provinziellen Niederungen. Über vierzig Autos und 24 Rennstrecken enthält das Spiel? Na großartig. Überlegt man aber, dass Test-Drive-Spiele in jährlichen Abständen erscheinen, hat man für keine Strecke mehr als ein paar Tage Zeit gehabt. So zumindest wirkt's auf mich.

Like comic/actor Adam Sandler, Infogrames’ TEST DRIVE series continues to thrive despite critical scorn and obvious flaws. With a development cycle seemingly a year or more behind its chief rivals — and some of the worst control coding of any action racing game — it nevertheless keeps on motoring along. TEST DRIVE 6 is the latest from the studios of long-time developer Pitbull Syndicate. and it once again relies upon the proven formula at real-life sports cars in highly improbable situations. Is it a test drive? Not on your life. This has long been one of PC gaming’s premier examples of floating-above-the-ground arcade-ism, and that hasn’t changed.

Cool soundtrack aside, the rest of the presentation of the game feels flat, behind the times, and unrefined. Sadly, TD6 doesn't come close to being as good as NFS3, let alone the fourth iteration. It doesn't even make up its NFS shortcomings by excelling with a good multiplayer option. There isn't one.

Test Drive 6 attempts to overcome its inadequacies with a high-powered sound track from some of today’s hot bands, including Fear Factory. Unfortunately, while the music is good, it doesn’t fit with the action and would be better off sold as a separate CD. It’s a shame that a series like Test Drive would take such a fall. When originally released, the first few Test Drive’s were top-notch entertainment. Unfortunately, like countless money-driven sequels, it just didn’t know when to stop. Sadly, one will be challenged to remember the highlights of the series after playing this painful, and hopefully, final version.

La série Test Drive a tenu plus d'un joueur en haleine pendant de longues soirées entre amis ou en solo. Mais avec le temps, de meilleurs jeux sont venus qui ont relégué ces titres au fond de l'armoire... Cela vaut-il encore la peine de les ressortir ?
