Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends
Test Drive trying again? really?
After the debacle that is test drive unlimited, I can't believe this company would have the gall to try again. I never felt so burned by a franchise in my life. I wouldn't even touch this game if I found it in the 5 dollar bin.
What is this?
Huge fan of TDU1 and 2, despite the flaws of both, 2 especially. I've been anticipating new DLC content for TDU2, but I don't think they're gonna charge $40 for a Ferrari-themed DLC. If this were simply a standalone, I would assume there would be more car brands apart from Ferrari, unless they're trying to compete with that "Ferrari Challenge" game that came out two years ago. I guess I'll have to wait to find out, but this currently makes no sense.
Don't Judge a book by its cover
This game consists only of Ferrari's. Before you rant on my Username being Enzo (yes I like Ferrari's) This game is focused on only Ferrari's and in case you didn't know their is easily over 70 Models of Ferrari's made since 1940. Also since the game has less cars than Forza 4 it can have more of a focus on Physics and Graphics (not saying Forza Doesn't have enough of that already) But I think it'll be a good game But if your going to get it just wait because most likely sales will be low therefore price will drop quick. Oh one thing if you don't have Forza 4 then buy it.
Theres a couple more than 20 different Ferrari models ever made. So it is not worth it. I mean if your a Ferrari fanatic or lover then maybe. People should instead buy Forza 4 and get more than maybe 12 different Ferraris plus over a hundred more cars of different companys. Not worth it to me.
Not for most
First, the starting in black and white and changing to color after the flag falls is a disaster. I don't know how many times I ran off the track because I couldn't see it. Second, I had to crank up the brightness on my t.v. because the shadows in the game are so dark that you can't even see the racing line. Finally, unless you are a pro at racing games, expect to advance about 1/6th through the game before you can't get to the next level - and that is driving as a novice. If you want to have fun driving a Ferrari, get Forza.
What is this gonna be?
I am a fun of racing games but there is no info on this game so it probably will be awful.
It's 40 bucks, so obviously it's a standalone. But it's only Ferraris? It would be ok if it were Lambo or Lotus. But we're talking about Ferraris. No. Just. NO!!!! I would hate to be a suxxor who buys a game where you only drive Ferraris.
Only for hardcore gamers
Most gamers will probably not want to put in the time and effort necessary to beat the numerous, sky-high challenges in the career mode, and without beating those challenges, the vast majority of the game (both cars and tracks) remains locked (even in arcade and time trial modes). An extremely frustrating and disappointing waste of money for me.
Something To Remember
Remember, Atari owns the Test Drive name, but, just like Call of Duty and Need For Speed, is made by different companies. TDU and TDU2 is made by Eden Games, while this is being made by Slightly Mad Studios, who made Need Speed Shift and Shift 2 and the upcoming Project CARS. So look at Shift 2 before you decide, not Test Drive Unlimited 2
New Test Drive
The Test Drive series have not been the best, the first one with unrealistic graphics and bad gameplay, and then the second one not even being a real racing game. But, forgetting about those, this looks like it could be promising. As long as they keep it to a true racing game, with a good career mode, it should be worth buying.
