Test Drive 5 offers 28 supercars but leaves you wanting to take the bus - partly because the line-up is a bit, and partly because their wobbly 3Dfx interpretations look a bit suspect, but mostly because the programmers have again failed to capture the authentic 'feel' of a car. Sweep along any of the 17 courses and it seems like you're moving the tarmac rather than the wheels.
Not one vehicle conforms to its real-life counterpart - dash down the twisting streets of Moscow in a Nissan Skyline GT-R and you're effortlessly outpaced by a Chevrolet Corvette. The Skyline has been described by the motoring press as the quickest point-to-point car on the planet; the Corvette is a crude American bathtub from the late sixties. You get the picture.
Smaller niggles include the lack of a rear-view mirror, no damage, and the way the car loses speed when you stray onto the pavement. Multiplayer is the only area where the game improves, enabling six players to squeal around the streets and smash into one another. Test Drive 5 remains a carbon copy of its predecessor, albeit with a few extra go-faster accessories. A look back to the review of Test Drive 4 reveals that Charlie Brooker was similarly unimpressed. Given that he's never actually been behind the wheel of a car, his criticisms of its poor handling and over-clinical gameplay are all the more revealing. It makes you wonder why developers Pitbull haven't been able to rescue the venerable Test Drive moniker from the long sliproad to indifference.
