Slightly Mad have been working on a Ferrari game for some time now previously known as "Ferrari Project," but got into legal troubles. The engine was subsequently used in Shift and Shift 2 and it will finally be released next year under the Test Drive brand.

Without EA holding them back, hopefully it will be a more realistic racing simulator than Shift. Question is, will it do for Ferrari what Need for Speed: Porsche unleashed did for Porsche?

Maybe with this being separate from EA, and with the whole EA/Porsche thing, maybe Turn 10 will allow the 360 version to have the 458, just for this game?

Yes, the full name is officially uncovered as Test Drive: Ferrari Legends. Bad here is... it will be released only for PS3/XBOX 360 on 28th February 2012 :/

Hopefully Atari might think of PC port. Awaiting for more information ;)

Pretty underwhelming game I have to say, with trademark wobbly SMS driving physics. There are some nice vintage Ferraris in this game that you don't see in Forza, but other than that I'd much rather drive the Ferraris in Forza. :p On the upside, the selection of tracks is nice, seeing as most of them are from Shift 2.

My cover art looks different however, so I'm not sure if the cover we've used for the page is the US version. Can anyone clarify?



Weirdly, I have a PAL version and yet the publisher on my cover says Rombax when I thought Big Ben were publishing the European version.

Pro Street was mediocre. Best thing in it was the tuning... Undercover had a bad storyline that made no sense. (Why would the cops be after an undercover cop? :??:) But the worst storyline plothole was Need for Speed Most Wanted 2005. Mia was so obvious. She always kept saying "I can't belive how deep this goes..." About the racing scene. Not to mention Ronnie all of the sudden went from a Supra to a DBS. :P

sajmon14 PL (234)

To me the best is HP 2010. Easily the best released on Xbox 360 / PS3, and the best in recent years.

AutoTracker US (61)

2016-03-08 00:39

I also at least have one GOOD thing to say about Rivals, best Xbox One / PS4 NFS release so far. :D It actually had day and night, while the new one of course is only night. And it is an actual cycle rather than what we have in '15, where some areas are always set at a certain time. Even with the name of the system, Dusk to Dawn, I before the release thought it was going to be a night cycle where it starts at dusk and goes to dawn, and then resets. And it is always raining in '15, while in Rivals there's a dynamic weather system. And the cars in Rivals seemed more driveable than in '15. For instance, in Rivals you could actually predict where cars are going to go, while in '15 there's no predicting. And finally, you all know it is damn fun to be the cops :D which you can't be in '15. :( Maybe in a future update. Even though when you're a cop in Rivals, it's kinda annoying in Freedrive when you're doing a speedlist and you've finished and you're heading back to your command post and you get caught up in all these chases, because just like '15, online only game. Gives you more speed points though :D

And that is why Rivals is better than '15, and therefore best next-gen NFS released so far.

If you're a fan of Japanese cars, then HP 2010 is not the game for you. I mean, you do get some good Japanese cars at the beginning, but as you get later on they kinda disappear.

Are you really supposed to see the interiors in The Run? I don't remember any sort of interior camera view in-game. The only time I remember you seeing interiors in The Run is the opening cutscene where they crush the Porsche. <---SPOILER ALERT

The only NFS i really liked was Hot Pursuit (2010), I couldn't really get on with the popular titles (Underground, MW)

The graphics in The Run were quite nice at the time but everything else is just horrible. And bad as Rivals was, it is still better than the '15 Reboot (talking about the map and the Day/Dawn-Cycle)
