Es mag interessant sein, die Historie der roten Flitzer von Beginn an zu erleben, doch dem Spielspa√ü hat der chronologische Spielaufbau nicht gut getan. Die erste √Ąra nervte mich, da sie sich endlos in die L√§nge zog und einige Aufgaben mit den alten, kaum zu b√§ndigenden Kisten selbst auf leichter Schwierigkeitsstufe sehr happig waren. Etwas Abwechslung in Form von Zeitspr√ľngen bei der Karriere und somit unterschiedlichere Wagen h√§tten meiner Motivation nicht geschadet. Das Fahrverhalten gef√§llt mir insgesamt recht gut, wobei ich gerne die Fahrhilfen einzeln konfigurieren k√∂nnen w√ľrde und eindeutig zum Lenkrad tendiere. Mit der Grafik kann ich trotz einiger M√§ngel halbwegs gut leben, die genialen Motorensounds tr√∂sten dar√ľber hinweg!

Still, if you're prepared to put in the hours unlocking it all, there are a vast number of vehicles and circuits, and the diversity of the line-up makes this worth a look for racing fans with a sim inclination. Even with EA's Need For Speed-branded gloss stripped away and replaced by rudimentary menus, there's still a satisfying, if bare-bones, driving game beneath.

√Ėverlag presenterar Ferrari Racing Legends ett spelkoncept som handlar om en noggrann hyllning till Ferrari-m√§rket korsat med enkelhet i allt √∂vrigt. Med tre sv√•righetsgrader kan till och med en bilspelsnovis f√• ut en del av spelet, √§ven om det fortfarande inte √§r l√§tt att ratta dessa monster. Men grundfr√•gan f√∂r ett bilspel b√∂r alltid vara, √§r det kul att k√∂ra? Och d√§r √§r svaret ett sj√§lvklart ja. Ferrari Racing Legends kan avnjutas i sm√• doser lika v√§l som l√•nga sittningar och det som saknas i grafik eller speluppl√§gg v√§gs upp av k√§rleken till Ferrari-m√§rket.

Test Drive : Ferrari Racing Legends remplit plut√īt bien sa mission, √† savoir rendre hommage √† la marque italienne √† travers diff√©rentes √©poques. Gr√Ęce √† un gameplay plaisant et √©quilibr√©, accessible mais exigeant, le jeu de Slightly Mad Studios saura convaincre les puristes mais peut-√™tre un peu moins les autres joueurs, qui seront rebut√©s par des bugs persistants, un mode Campagne r√©p√©titif ou l'absence d'un multijoueur en √©cran splitt√©. Mais Ferrari Racing Legends se rattrape gr√Ęce √† son mode ralenti particuli√®rement sympa ou le jeu en ligne qui permet √† 8 joueurs de se tirer la bourre.

Gamers' Temple, The (65 out of 100)

It would be nice if the game had some sort of free ride mode that allowed a player to drive around and get the feel of each car. For a name like Ferrari, more effort should have been put into modes where a player could enjoy driving the car instead of being pushed into meeting a certain agenda constantly. There really is no break from the standard racing in the game. It's not a bad game, but you really should know what you're getting yourself into before you buy it - a challenging list of events with hard controls to master.

Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends is not a bad game; it is simply what it is. I hate to be so nondescript about a game, but if you like Ferraris and racing the tracks they tend to zoom on, you will probably have a good time. If not, then this game is definitely not for you. As I said earlier, creating a game based around a single make of vehicle can be a real challenge to developers, and Slightly Mad Studios did a decent job here. You just really have to be into that sort of thing and possess a serious amount of patience to get your money’s worth out of this game.

IGN (6.5 out of 10)

High-speed thrills hit the wall too soon in the punishing campaign, and despite a solid range of multiplayer, quick race, and time-trial options, progressing through the three distinct eras to unlock all the tracks and sweet rides is a big part of the fun that gets trampled by the clumsy execution.

AusGamers (6.5 out of 10)

A great game for Ferrari and racing fans alike, with enough challenge to really test those familiar with the genre, but unfortunately lacking in a more approachable set-up, even for those of us who found the history of Ferrari utterly alluring even after just a few hours of play.

Game Informer Magazine (6.5 out of 10)

The combination of a solid racing framework with the Ferrari license could have worked out, but this is a zero-sum game that appeases nobody. Ferrari Racing Legends does not exhibit the best of what the sports car brand nor the developer have to offer.

As a rental, Test Drive Ferrari Racing Legends will give you an awesome couple of nights of high-octane racing with you, a bunch of friends, and a couple beers. But as a permanent addition to your collection, I'd say avoid it unless you are a serious hardcore racing fan. If that's your thing, however, then go nuts, because Ferrari Racing Legends is certainly made for Ferrari-obsessed gearheads like you!

Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends offre un'esperienza di difficile classificazione. Si tratta di un arcade? Decisamente no, visto l'approccio hardcore alle gare. Si tratta di una simulazione? Nemmeno: troppo poche le regolazioni a nostra disposizione e praticamente nulla l'introduzione a ogni evento. Ci sono sicuramente numeri indiscutibili a favore del titolo di Slightly Mad Studios: oltre duecento sfide compongono una carriera che ripercorre tre epoche e ci mette a disposizione un totale di cinquanta vetture e quasi quaranta tracciati (contando le varianti), l'intelligenza artificiale degli avversari √® al di sopra della media e, come detto, il grado di sfida √® notevole. Peccato non si sia provveduto a mettere insieme questi elementi con pi√Ļ cura per il contorno, finendo per pregiudicare l'appetibilit√† del gioco presso chiunque non sia un fan sfegatato della Ferrari.

Meristation (6 out of 10)

Un bonito e interesante recorrido por los modelos que han popularizado a Ferrari como una de las escuder√≠as m√°s importantes del sector automovil√≠stico; cumple en cuanto a contenido se refiere, pero no acierta en la ejecuci√≥n de las ideas que se proponen. El estilo de conducci√≥n, a medio camino entre la simulaci√≥n y el arcade, deja un buen sabor de boca que se ve afectado por las taras a nivel gr√°fico (muy buen dise√Īo de circuitos y modelos, pero mala definici√≥n de la sensaci√≥n de velocidad y de los fondos que se aprecian en carrera). El sistema piramidal que abre nuevas pruebas entorpece el camino de los jugadores m√°s exigentes en cuanto a material desbloqueable, lo mismo que a la hora de disfrutar de un multijugador bastante simple, eficiente pero nada destacable.

Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends h√§tte ein sch√∂ner L√ľckenf√ľller f√ľr den Sommer werden k√∂nnen, denn was den Ansatz und Umfang der Karriere betrifft, befinden sich die Slightly Mad Studios auf dem richtigen Weg. H√§tte man doch nur f√ľr mehr Abwechslung gesorgt und die billige Pr√§sentation aufgepeppt. Bei der Modellierung der Traumwagen aus Maranello hat man sich dagegen nicht lumpen lassen. Zwar werden kaum Informationen geboten, doch sieht die Auswahl an Ferraris zwischen 1947 und heute nicht nur klasse aus, sondern klingt auch so. Die Fahrphysik kann da leider nicht mithalten: Zwar ist sie durchaus anspruchsvoll und tendiert mehr zur Simulation als zur simplen Arcade-Raserei, doch leidet sie an dem √ľbertriebenen √úbersteuern, das typisch f√ľr die Rennspiele der Slightly Mad Studios ist und mit dem st√§ndigen Ausbrechen des Hecks und Rutscheinlagen mehr an Go Kart-Fahren erinnert.

Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends is dan ook niet wat het had kunnen worden. De Ferrari‚Äôs in de game ogen prachtig, maar de omgevingen daarin tegen zien er een stuk minder mooi uit en geven de game letterlijk een slecht beeld. De campagne heeft een mooie tijdsduur, maar aan de moeilijkheidsgraad mankeert wat. Tel daarbij op dat de andere modi van de campagne afhankelijk zijn en je ziet dat de game zichzelf nadelig be√Įnvloed. Dat is jammer, want hierdoor krijgen de prachtige racemonsters van Ferrari niet de game die ze verdienen.

MondoXbox (5.8 out of 10)

Dei tre stili di guida praticamente solo uno √® sfruttabile decentemente, e la rigidissima formula del gioco, completamente incentrata sulla carriera, porta troppi obblighi anche per il pi√Ļ paziente dei videogiocatori. Il confine che porta alla frustrazione √® troppo labile e l'ho varcato troppe volte per ritenermi soddisfatto da questo gioco e per poterlo consigliare ad ogni appassionato. Se non avete paura di imprecare per buona parte del tempo, gli aspetti storici e il mito Ferrari potrebbero comunque portare qualche piccola soddisfazione; per chiunque sia alla ricerca di un prodotto semplicemente godibile e non cos√¨ vicino alla frustrazione, invece, il mio consiglio √® quello di cercare altrove.

GameSpot (5.5 out of 10)

The same is true when you create a game on Xbox Live. Online races allow up to eight players to compete, and they work well, though at this stage, very few people are playing online, and you tend to see the same few cars and tracks appear again and again. Ferrari Racing Legends all but squanders its greatest asset--a vast collection of fantastic cars--by locking most of them behind campaign challenges that quickly become tiresome. Ferrari enthusiasts may squeeze some enjoyment from this game, but it's far from being the elegant, finely tuned celebration the Ferrari legacy deserves.

As much as Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends looks the part ‚ÄĒ with 50-plus vehicles sporting fantastic detail inside and out ‚ÄĒ its humdrum and overly difficult career disappoints, while spotty handling and physics keep this simulation strictly for diehards.

Level 7 (5 out of 10)

Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends innehåller de flesta Ferrari-modeller, från tidigt fyrtiotal till nutid. Tyvärr behöver man tampas med en onödigt svår kampanj för att låsa upp dem. Kort och gott: ett kompetent bilspel som förstörs av dess höga svårighetsgrad.

Test Drive Ferrari Racing Legends non dona pressoch√© alcuna soddisfazione al videogiocatore; a quello esperto come a quello casuale. Inforcare il volante di una Ferrari 125S e vederla comportarsi in pista come una Testarossa √® semplicemente deprimente. Purtroppo anche il lavoro ‚Äúdi contorno‚ÄĚ al gameplay non funziona quasi mai: la modalit√† di gioco principale pare essere strutturata per incatenarci in una progressione senza respiro e le modalit√† collaterali dipendono dalla prima in maniera assolutamente esagerata. Il comparto tecnico infine, che mostra la cura che ci si poteva aspettare da un titolo celebrativo solo in alcune sue parti, lasciando tutto il resto completamente allo sbando. Una produzione, in sostanza, consigliata solo a chi fosse talmente legato alla Ferrari ed alla sua storia, da collezionare qualsiasi cosa ad essa collegata.
