There are a lot of friv games with the words Test Drive in the name. Surely once someone even removes the full story of the series. It’s interesting: “Test drives” on store shelves for almost 25 years - and during this period they were thrown to extremes more than once. They managed to visit a cloud of platforms, saw the death of Commodore, Atari and CGA-graphics. Test Drive already "went to school" and had as many as 11 incarnations (three projects and eight collections and additions) when Need For Speed appeared in 1994 . Back in 1990, Test Drive 3 offered a pack of innovations: a free world, in some places polygonal graphics ... even a butterfly could sit on the windshield, and the wipers turned out to be indispensable in a blizzard or rain.

And then the series suffered in all serious. In 1997, for some reason, she decided to compete with Need For Speed . Mice ate the free world, cars lost their cockpits, instead of at least pretty sprite-pixel images - clumsy 3D models in an ugly, completely voluminous environment from the dawn of computer graphics. But the series inherited the problems of the predecessors from the eighties: terrible control, strange physics, silly AI. By the fifth part, everything had become generally bad. I myself remember - it was impossible to play. A common complaint is that computer opponents overtake, leaving no chance. So it was.

Along the way, another Test Drive Off-Road was produced . The first is terrible inside and out, the second is better, with an economic system. The third is simply the development of ideas. In the main series, things got worse:Test Drive at number 6 did not fix the problems - poor appearance, annoying handling and ironic attitude of AI. The police regime was only pulling out - for those who were fed up with Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit.

Now you have some idea of ​​the series - and you understand that the first Test Drive Unlimitedbecame a real return to the roots and rebirth. A boundless island, kilometers of smooth roads, shops, a camera in the cockpit, full steering wheel support, at least a slightly functional interior and a pleasant nobleness of luxury cars with a touch of pleasant modern technology. GPS inside Nissan 350Z duplicated map! Delight, albeit flavored with bugs. Motorcycles turned out to be completely uncontrollable, and the friv game quickly exhausted itself - www.friv4online.com as soon as it got into a real car, the excitement of the simulation evaporated. However, this was a breakthrough - after decades of all kinds of scary bullshit, it’s directly manna. The return was successful, the second part went in the same direction.

Ibiza! The sea, the beaches, the invigorating breeze and rich guys cut into expensive cars. We literally dive into this life - a fast-paced career from a parker without work to a racer in a prestigious competition. The plot is purely cosmetic. Here is the competition “Crown of the Sun”, but one of the participants broke his leg in three places. And now our hero, whose appearance can be set at the beginning, has to go from the lower steps to the very heights. On the way, so as not to be bored, looking at clothing stores, hairdressers, buying houses - you can even use the services of a plastic surgeon. Over the years, a proven scheme ... and it is unlikely that this can be written in pluses. The "Competition" looks absolutely fake, the show-offs of the "Crown of the Sun" flavored with kilograms of pathos (and in some places the voice acting does not coincide with the movements of the lips) cause rejection.

But the island is really huge. Ibiza is not inferior to Hawaii from the first part. True, there is not much difference between them (although, due to the size of the territory, I probably might not have enough to see enough in Hawaii). Lush greenery, hundreds of kilometers of roads, beautiful sunsets, a sapphire ocean ... The second part looks better, the colors have become juicier, and the asphalt plays with glare and reflections after the rain. Technological progress is noticeable. At the same time, the system does not die under the onslaught of graphics - many will be able to enjoy the scenery of Test Drive Unlimited 2 (hereinafter TDU2 ).

Especially good islands are revealed in the review races. Over a hundred kilometers along a winding route. The timer in the upper corner ruthlessly measures more than 50 minutes. This is a unique feature of TDU2.. Among the rest, such long races can only afford Gran Turismo 5 , but even there they are circular. And here the panorama is constantly changing. We rush past the fields, what is growing there - we don’t understand, like wheat, light beige spikelets surround the road on both sides. We give in to gas, at a speed of 270 we fly to the southern tip of the island - overlooking the ocean, the sky and water merge into a haze. The path runs right at the cliff, only a small chipper separates from falling down. A sharp turn - the sun is blind, but this does not interfere with the movement. Radiance fills the interior (the view from the cockpit is good), the world is covered with golden glaze. Gradually, the colors fade, the last rays bounce off the car body, real-time sunset flows into the night, stars and a huge moon come onto the scene.

Ibiza is green: a carpet of grass covers everything in the area, but there are few other plants, mostly shrubs and large trees. They do not allow the earth to remain “naked”, but at the same time pacify zealous lovers of “cut” the path. It is necessary to turn off the smooth asphalt - one way or another kiss with the flora. But this is not everywhere - in some places the trees seem to surround, turning into a full-fledged forest. Hawaii met such arrays more often. Meanwhile, the track leads to the city on the shore.

A beautiful bay, the flickering lights of expensive hotels, the sky is overcast, the light of windows replaces the stars, the first drops of rain worms crawling on the windshield ... We do not need windshield wipers - we can’t turn them on for nothing. There are no showers here, drops are simply smeared, and grip, as expected, is getting worse. The rain ends relatively quickly, the sky clears, morning is coming. Blackness gives way to azure, the first rays timidly cut through the darkness, distracted for a second - dawn floods the sleepy city to the brim.

So feels TDU2. The world is whole, and racing is just its small pieces, subject to general laws. We share a single picture on the tracks inside the island, coast, off-road, at night, day or in the rain. And it doesn’t matter which of the steel horses is under us, except that the smearing at speed is better noticeable.

in TDU2a lot ... at least at first glance. Shops are generously scattered across two islands. Mercedes, Bugatti, Audi, Chevrolet, Ford, Ferrari and the gang of European supercars - Askari, Koenigsegg, Spiker ... Classic again - Lancia, Mustang, Lotus. A curiosity - SUVs "Tuareg", "Mercedes" ML series, Audi Q7, Range Rover and others. Not 1000 cars, as you know where, of course, but everyone has a well-developed interior, there is even some interactivity. But the poor - instead of some interesting functionality, there are only three options: lower the windows, fold the roof (if she knows how) and flicker with turn signals. You forget about the activation button after five minutes of driving. Flashing yellow lights on half-empty tracks will only be a true pervert ... hmm, connoisseur. Inside the car, however, you can turn your head, considering the richness of the finish, but ...

The main nuisance of TDU2 is clumsy , unnatural cars (this means rude, gracefully made, otherwise someone in the comments doubted my knowledge - hello to him). Models are like plastic, although the world pleases the view. It turns out the tragic discrepancy between the object and the environment. TDU2 at the same time resembles the oldest GTA in terms of technology : San Andreasand the unknown race of the middle arm of the year 2005 commercials. When looking at the body, an unpleasant feeling does not leave - instead of the gloss of expensive paints, a cheap Chinese toy. In the cabin, this taste is slightly weakening, but even in the best fireballs, the interior looks unconvincing. GPS in the center console of some cars treacherously destroys at least some kind of dive. He looks alien. Remember the old movies: it’s always easy to see if the TV is working in the frame, or the image is superimposed separately. So it is here. Someone even noticed during one of the streams that the Gran Turismo 5 TDU2 is complete ... as Jay said. And due to the incomprehensibility of the iron horses - in one of the first stages.
