very very fun game, i finished this game since 4 years ago, but its the only really destruction derby-like never made, for me its more good than flatout.

8-Ball, Bus derby, drive a ambulance or hearse véhicule in a derby session, the caravan race, cars football etc etc the choice for a game like this is impressionant.

Look this video : www.youtube.com/watch?v=smr5sSVdKTI

I agree, this is probably the most authentic destruction derby experience to date, as it incorporates a variety of real life events.

Test Drive: Eve of Destruction was known as Driven To Destruction in Europe.

yes my game is the european version, but the language is in english and called driven to destruction. This game with test drive off road 1& 2 its the 3 Test Drive special of the Test drive series

There are several vehicles missing at the moment. There's also a 1968-1969 AMC Javelin, an AMC Gremlin, a 1966 Ford Ranchero, a 1973-1977 Chevrolet Malibu wagon, and a Willys postal Jeep, among others.

I'll add in those two cars and the other vehicles that are missing in the game as soon as I learn to use gamebridge. ;)

So, judging from all these positive comments and without the usual negaitve review or user debate, I take it this is highly recomended? It looks worth the money, can't believe I've never played it! Definitely my choice of cars, even if they're banger racers. There's just one question I need to ask... To complete the package, does it have a decent soundtrack? Eg: Rock, metal, metal, rock? :lol:

I love this game! It covers a genre of driving you can't easily find. I don't know of many other games that have a Demolition Derby Mode. Also, there is only one '66 Ranchero.

Now I just made new pics for this game. My older pics have poor quality, so I made some better pics. And not to disappoint you, takumi, but the pics you posted are from other websites:

I also posted 2 Rancheros, I'm sorry. So I'd like to ask if I can post some more pics as comments, please. Oh yeah, I'm also making new pics for Saints Row, as well.

Thanks takumi, I've posted a few more cars (which haven't been validated yet):

- Chevrolet Monte Carlo
- 1957 Chevrolet Bel Air (Taxi)
- A hatchback (I didn't know what it was)
- 5 unplayable vehicles

Are you sure you don't won't any new images for the other vehicles? And I'm still working on new images for Saints Row. ;)

Good job, Black Bart. Did any of the cars have game names?

Black Bart US (84)

2010-06-05 16:27

Thanks, and yes, the cars (except for the unplayable cars) do have games names. At first, I didn't think they were that important, but since many other racing games have names of their own, I guess I should give them out.

Recently bought the game. I agree with all the above comments that it's fun, but personally I would have enjoyed it more a few years ago when I was really into games like these. That's just me, though. The arcade mode is fun, even though not all cars and tracks are available at first and earning reputation points to unlock them can take a while. I enjoy the free-roaming ability of career mode, despite it being limited, but the career events are much more frustrating than fun. Aside from that, the car selection is extensive, the graphics are good, the handling of the cars vary but are otherwise acceptable and the dirt tracks are hard to drive on but the track scenery designs are respectable. :)

I'd say my only real disappointment is the soundtrack - Aside from the game menu tracks and various metal sound effects, the driving soundtrack is made up of songs that are mostly pop-punk garbage. What's worse is that there is no function to choose songs to drive around to - no ability to create a playlist. Yet with only seven songs in the entire game, there's not much of a point. :mad: Yet again, that's just me who likes to complain. :D :lol:

However, I must admit to the fact that it is one of the best games I've bought for a while. ;)

Black Bart US (84)

I wasn't really satisfied with the soundtrack, either.

just decided to have a read through the IGCD driving test and discovered alot of the details are completely wrong

2 players split screen multiplayer: No // Should be yes
Number of competitors in split screen 2 players: 0 // I think there are 12 AI drivers in 2 player split screen (can't remember for definite its either 8, 10 or 12)
4 player split screen multiplayer: No // Yes
Number of competitors in split screen 4 players: 0 // Unknown, personally haven't had a chance to try 4 player
Online mode: No
Number of competitors in online mode: 0
Quality of multiplayer: Bad // It may be personal opinion but the multiplayer is pretty good, as you have access to all features/modes/vehicles/tracks from single player

Damage to the scenery: No // Wrong! dynamic objects can be smashed (barrels, fences, signs) also barrels that are on fire can set the hay bales and wooden signs on fire if they're knocked into them
Depth of field: Wrong: Clipping or fog near // what the **** is that suppose to mean?! if this is representative of the draw distance then it should listed as far/good
Quality of the background and sky: Good
Dust effects: No // Wrong again, dust rises from the trails of the cars

During a crash, the vehicle: bounces without loss of speed // vehicles do actually slow down following impacts

Mechanical adjustments possible: No // vehicle upgrades are available

Mechanical management: No // vehicle upgrades are available

Nicely said buddy, but I prefer Overdrive in 3rd and this game in 2nd. The first favorite of my Test Drive game is Test Drive 6 personally. No offense

I love this game been playing it for years...they need to make and updated version of it, and personally I think the "Top" looks more like a Plymouth Horizon than a Chevette, just saying..

In my opinion, this is the spiritual sequel of the Destruction Derby franchise, unlike the disappointing DD Arenas

carcrasher88 US (22)

Gonna have to agree. I tried Arenas a few years back, and I didn't particularly care for it. This game, on the other hand, is excellent.
