Test drive overdrive is a good game, but can't compare to Need for speed or Midnight Club.
Just like need for speed hot pursuit 2 it had normal racing and Pursuit racing. It also had drag racing which was only availible in the manual transmision.
As the game was made by Atari and it had a rather large wait between the loading starting, and finishing, you were able to play ping pong while it was doing so. This was quite a good feature, but didn't win over most of the fans.
The multiplayer was great, as it has loads of cars and quite a few modes. This is great if you like playing with friends and family, but otherwise, it isn't needed as much.
I think this game is good, but not good enough to beat Need for speed or Midnight Club.
Overall............ 7 / 10
