PC.IGN heeft een review van Test Drive: Off-Road 2. Het idee achter die Test Drive spellen is meestal wel leuk maar de uitvoering is vaak klote (neem bijv. Test Drive III waarvan ik door de extreem irriterende besturing nog nog steeds getraumatiseerd ben). Zo ook met TDOR2:
The worst aspect of this game is the poor, uninspired graphics. The visuals are so incredibly bland, flat, blocky, and lifeless I actually checked to make sure my Voodoo2 card was still seated correctly in its slot. After taking apart my system and determining that indeed my Voodoo2 card was connected correctly, I hit the screen a few times just in case my monitor was on the fritz. No such luck -- the graphics really were that bad … even in 3Dfx. To make matters worse, Test Drive Off Road 2 suffers from serious clipping problems. Sometimes you can drive directly through a tree, other times you'll slam into it and flip your vehicle.
