Test Drive Off Road is the Dirt, snow and gravel part of the acclaimed Test Drive series. The program features 4 actual off-road vehicles; The Land Rover Defender 90, The Jeep Wrangler, the Chevy K1500 Z71, and the awesome Hummer. The game features a cool, actual music soundtrack by the group Gravity kills.

There are some parts of the game that I didn't like. For instance, it was rather hard to control using a Joystick, and the dumbest thing is that I kept bumping in to trees and loosing control. Now, you may be thinking, so what, you crashed into trees, big deal. Well, now, if you were driving a Chevy K1500 Z71 (Monster truck) and a tiny little tree blocked you from moving, you would think the same way that I do. All-in-all, TDOR is still a very good game, and very original, since there are a lot of racing games, but not too many off road racers. I recommend this game on the basis if Sounds, graphics, performance, and originality.
