TDU: Lamborghini too

TDU: Lamborghini too

After Aston Martin last week, it's now the turn of the Lamborghini cars from Test Drive Unlimited to be unveiled for our enjoyment.

Very nice, I like the car models in this more than PGR 3.. they seem more realistic.

Nice, but not enough cup holders for my liking.

now these pictures raise some questions...

Do we have to pay extra for the nav-system?
And will the nav-system have a male or female voice?

What about licensing some cars from the Burnout series?^^ That would be much cooler than these boring Lamborghinis imo.

First time I've ever seen the word boring and Lamborghini in the same sentence......

Car models look awesome.

Well for starters, all the burnout cars are completeley made up, and they are not licensed. Well they might be now as burnout cars, but not otherwise.

This is why X360 matters. I want this game right now.

That's the difference between a childs game and a grown ups game. ;)

That's the point. I think they are more interesting because of being specially made up for the game.

Then they wouldn't be so great in another game, right?
(they're all based on real cars anyway, as you can see)

Test drive has always been about driving "simulated" real world cars.

burnout cars look like hot wheels
Commented on 2006-04-08 15:48:05
What do the cars look like in game though? these look like photo mode pics.
Commented on 2006-04-08 17:48:00
The Burnout cars are really boring, and not very good looking really.

Give me some real life masterpieces like these Lambos, and im ready to rumble :)
Commented on 2006-04-08 18:01:07
I have to agree that the game will probably look awful if these are all photo mode pictures

not always true, i had test drive 6 and i hope in no way were simulated or even attempted, the only thing was they were real world cars, but that was total arcade racing..... but i do remember the first test drive game i played to for my apple IIe and i remember they did go for simulation, i played that for hours on end, good times..........

That's partially due to the image quality though...you put perfect AA on PGR3 and it's pretty gorgeous too..but it's not what the game actually looks like..sorta like this isn't a good indication of what TRU will look like. (as it looks significantly worse in game, from what little we've seen, imo)

^^my fondest memories of this franchise are back on the Apple //..neat.

well, the quotes were there for a reason, but I was mainly referring to the modeling.
