Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends
Pass on this one
WOW, what a huge disappointment, graphics, gameplay etc all feel like i stepd back into the 80's gaming shame because i really was hopeing this title would be at least as good as testdrive 2's graphics/gameplay but this game FAILS terribly.. every car handles the same, all over the place no balance etc..
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.
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.
Best Ferrari Game Ever!!
Everything about this game is fantastic, I own a couple Ferrari's and have driven them on the track. Let me tell you the handling is very simalar, I drive with a CSR elite wheel and this game does it plenty of justice. If you are a Ferrari fan and a race fan, this game is a must have. Enjoy it and hope to see you on the track.
This game is great!!! Slightly Mad have made a cream puff. Everything is beautiful about this game. My only critique is that they should have put more Formula 1 cars. Otherwise it is very realistic and worth the purchase. This one is a keeper.
Not a Sim
In no way is this game a sim racer. It's a good pick up and play. Actually it feels like a Shift 2 update. It has the physics of Shift 2, but the cars handle much better than Shift 2.
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
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.
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.
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.
