Test Drive

Test Drive is perhaps the longest running driving simulation franchise in the history of computer gaming. The first version came out in 1987 and the most recent game bearing the name was released last 2006. “Standard” game play options in current games such as being chased by police, playing a radio, and getting to use real cars (if you could call driving a $200,000.00 car, “reality”) was largely attributed as innovations of this game. Cars featured in the early versions of the series include:
