 Post subject: A new king
PostPosted: Tue Apr 03, 2007 8:52 am 
The king is dead, long live the king!

What am I talking about? Well, road racing sims for the PC. For about a decade, the category has been ruled with an iron fist by Need For Speed. But the series had been slipping for several years now, and finally a worthy challenger appeared...

The ancient Test Drive series has returned to its place as the ruler with the newest edition - Test Drive Unlimited.
I've gone a bit more in-depth in my LiveJournal, and I don't want to repeat myself here... so go check it out.

... Test Drive? 8O
Man, that brings back old memories...

Anyway, as you were evil and didn't post any screenshots in that journal entry, I checked out what Gamespot had to say about it - and they were a little less enthusiastic. Still, might be worth checking out - I've been looking for a good racing game for a while.


[EDIT]
Damn you. You made me boot up Test Drive 2!

You said that as if it were a bad thing. :)

Anyway, TDU has many problems, but as I don't play online, and haven't played a game on a system which comes anywhere near the recommended specs in years, none of the problems really apply to me. I'm used to slow games and jerkyness.

Incidentally, for a quick driving fix I use Live For Speed, which is slightly less hardware-hungry and a whole lot more realistic.
