Test Drive Unlimited is quite unlike any other driving game. How on Earth could anyone think it possible - or sane - to try and replicate a tropical paradise etched with some 1000 miles of roads, featuring no load times when roaming, accurately-rendered cars from over two-dozen manufacturers (including detailed dashboard views) and a sickening number of race-based challenges? We don’t know. But Melbourne House, thankfully, hasn’t even stopped to get snagged on such a question - it’s just knuckled down, crammed everything in from the Xbox 360 version and squeezed out something of a technical marvel.
