Atari proudly announced today that a few more or less legendary cars from Aston Martin would be available in Test Drive Unlimited. So here are a few "ingame renders" of the DB4 GT Zagato, DB9 Volante, DB9 coupe, V8 Vantage and Vanquish S V12.

Looks as good as PGR3 now.

PGR3 and Test Drive's graphics both have strengths in certain areas respectively.

The rear leg room In those Astons is totally crap.
Pics look great you can almost smell the leather.

Good grief this game looks good. I wonder if it will look that good online.

I don't think people buy those cars to use as "family cars."

wtf? Blim have you been lurking around and taking pictures of my many cars again??

Don't make me sick Roxwell on you!

The visuals of this game are quite amazing. I'll only seen little snippits of gameplay and im still not sure about this game.
Beautiful looking cars though.

It keeps on improving in every set of shots I see. Is there any word on an official launch date yet ?.
Commented on 2006-03-31 22:22:15
June my man. Im loving it.

im getting more and more hyped for this game the more i see it. just owning some of these classics will be cool but doing it all in a virtual world is great. buying cars via menu's etc is very unrealistic. i cant wait to walk around the lambo or aston showroom and purchase a new diablo or a db9

awesome!

I don't believe that image quality for a second..but nice details.

Don't have a lot of faith in the Test Drive franchise anymroe--but they do have some interesting concepts.

You have to be on drugs to compare this to PGR3. Look at the 12th shot, check out the wheels. They have no depth, your car is running on paper-thin alloys... Nice shaders, poor models.

Those pictures look insanely awesome! WOW!

Hey, what do you know about punani? :P

the cars arnt as high poly and there is some shoddy texture work here and there, but its getting better.
Commented on 2006-04-01 01:03:28
Nowhere near the quality of PGR3 as far as the cars themselves, but not that bad. The interiors I don't like AT ALL. They look too cheap--flatness all the way. In fact, nothing is done better than PGR3's cars. The reflections seem to be on par, but everything else.........NOTHING.

Oh and I know some people will say "WTF? Are you crazy?" So i'll give examples.

The rims are still 2d :| Check picture 12

Door handles are also 2d :| Check picture 17

Interiors are generally flat, using bump mapping and normal mapping I guess to makes things look more like they should, it doesn't quite work. Check picture 6

The emblems are also part of the painjob, check pic 12 again.

Don't get me wrong, I'm very interested in the game, I'm just stating that graphics wise, there's no comparision and that's a fact :D

in terms of how many cars will be on screen, i dont think it was ever going to beat pgr3. But i am very interested in this game. I imagine it will look pretty good in motion.

Isn't that the most beautifful car you've ever seen!?(the vanquish)

game looks pretty good, btw.
Commented on 2006-04-01 03:02:26
Well if this game truly runs in 720P and not in 600P or something like PGR3 and uses AA it atleast does beat that last game in one department.

About the game

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker Personally i find Kojima rather overrated. Yes MGS and MGS3 were fantastic, 2 wasn't nearly as good, same for 4 and 5....nah. (47 minutes ago)

    nostradamus @jmd749: Kojima Productions is independent. wrap that and give it away to your other half. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX @Tiz: "Individual skill" still drives top players to become top players in OW. The team with the better comp *and* better players is going to win. (1 Hour ago)

    GriftGFX @Tiz: Eh.. "more dependant on individual skill" is one way to look at it. (1 Hour ago)
  • jmd749
    jmd749 @droezelke: it's awesome that one of the greatest minds in game development is given funding and respect. And using a hardware specific engine for his new game suggests he'll be a Sony 1st party dev. (1 Hour ago)
