Urbanoutlaw Posted August 24, 2008 Share Posted August 24, 2008 Got a good cheap game? tell us about it. No flaming/fanboyism (but you guys already know that). A couple weeks back I picked up Test Drive: Unlimited (X360) to kill a little time w/ my kid for $17 from one of the local Gameshops & was pleasently shocked. TDU is one of the best games X360 I have. The scenery looks more like PS2 Gran Turismo but is collision modeled so you can drive across fields & through trees. The map is huge & detailed & there's plenty of side missions to earn $$$ for cars. The handling is good for all the cars & so far I've been able to win races w/ ALL the cars I've bought & they drive decently. The roads are well modeled & the GPS is one of the better ones I've seen. X360 version supports online racing. You start at an airport to set up your player & after a short cutscene you get off in Hawaii w/ $200k, rent a car to drive to a real estate office & car dealer, then take your first race & drive back to your house. Once done, you're turned loose to explore a surprisingly detailed island of Oahu (the big island). After only a couple hours I racked up some decent $$$ & bought several good cars. My collection so far (after playing for a week)- Audi Quattro TT Coupe. First car, fun to drive & wins races in it's class. '73 Firebird Trans Am. Good muscle car for $30k '6? Jag XK Coupe. One of my favorites from GT4, does well in it's class '06 Mustang GT. It's a 'Stang, duh. '71 Challenger. Old school Hemi, can keep up w/ the Jag. Shelby GT500. Old school 'Stang, duh. AC 289. Direct predecessor to the Shelby Cobra, this car moves & is the first time I've seen decent handling in a game. Dodge Viper SR10. Just not my favorite but still handles better than cars in other games, needs tuned. Lotus Espirit V8. Bargain @ $50k. Tune to max performance for another $65k. My favorite so far is the Shelby Daytona Coupe ($1 mil). Short version, great game for under $20. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
