Test Drive II & the duel
« on: December 24, 2002, 06:58:20 PM »
The best racing game after stunts (in my opinion) is Test Drive II. The music of this game is awesome and the driving its very comfortable. I always thought that Stunts is a kind of mix between Indianapolis 500 and Test Drive II. We know about TD2 because its almost the same team of designers, but the INDY500 have a lot of similar things, like the clouds, the replay management, the graphics when the cars exploid...
I only miss that in stunts there isn't the Ferrari F-40 (best car by far in the 70-80's).


My top 5 oldie racing are:
1. Stunts
2. Test Drive II
3. Grand Prix Cycles (next version of grand prix circuit)
4. Indianapolis 500
5. Iron Man (off road blabla)

Test Drive II & the duel

i love indy car racing and formula one grand prix grammond.

those times i play cycling manager and ride my bike. I cant do what armstrong can do, but its nothing about the bike's weight or brand.

i also recommend to babies the fantastic car and driver and the awesome need for speed. but nfs isnt an oldie yet.
It is reasonable to expect that genetic influences on traits like IQ should become less important as one gains experiences with age. Surprisingly, the opposite occurs.

Test drive series... Good memories.
The 1st I raced was Test Drive 1, on my Commodore 64 ! :D
Then came TD 2 (aka The Duel), but the 1st "revolution" was TD 1.

About Car and Driver : that's a great game too. I can still remember that on my 1st PC I was unable to put all details on because the game was much too slow then :!:  :lol:

Indy 500... How many hours I spent on this one ! Great game. Very fun to drive. Very fun to race at the wrong side and create awesome crashes when u are on a 10 laps race and undestructible !!!  :lol:
I remember that I managed once to create such a huge one, just on the start/finish line, that it was impossible to race on the road ! All cars were crashed. ALL :!: And I finished racing alone, going thought the pitstop at every remaining turns.
But I finally get bored of these crashes because there was only one single road to race... :(

I've played TD1 on the c64 too, it rules there.
I remember when I first acheieved to go on the last stage, (of course with the second most beautiful sportcar in the world, the Lotus Esprit), and I was going with keeping the speed rules to maker sure I'll finish :P
