Coinciding with the release of Test Drive 4, and the rebirth of the series, Test Drive Off Road was the start of a mini spin off series for the franchise. Originally set to be called Dirt Racer, the game took the premise of the original titles and switched the action off road, allowing the player to take control of rugged SUVs as opposed to the traditional exotic sports cars. At the time, fans of such vehicles would have rejoiced at such a prospect, as similar titles were in short supply. However, the comparatively sluggish nature of the game felt somewhat jarring compared to the fast paced action of the previous instalments, particularly with the absence of the thrill of driving down a traffic infested road at breakneck speed. Also of disappointment was the fact that only a mere 4 licensed vehicles were available, although this was rectified in future successors. All in all then, Test Drive Off Road succeeded in offering a dose of, admittedly now dated, arcade action, but was no substitute for the premier Test Drive series.

Something that also puzzled me was that this was the first Test Drive to feature car damage - it seems most likely therefore that the manufacturers voiced no objection in the depiction of visible damage, unlike the prestigious and hard nosed car manufacturers found in other games.
