Test Drive 6 has a variety of single player and multiplayer gameplay options that should please most racing fans. The game is setup where the player begins with a set amount of cash for which he or she can use to buy a car from to use in the races. One can compete in single races or tournaments for which you must place bets on to enter. Other modes include cop chase, where the player tries to arrest other cars (or the other player in two-player mode), and Pink Slip, where the two players race for ownership of the other’s vehicle.
The driving physics are actually quite realistic and are different for each of the numerous licensed vehicles in the game. In addition, the player can customize the car’s engine, brakes, tires and suspension, which all significantly affect the control and handling of each vehicle. While the driving physics are pretty much true to life, the crash physics are definitely not. There are massive crashes that create flips and wrecks that just wouldn’t happen in real life. This, of course, isn’t necessarily a negative feature because it helps create a fast-paced arcade-style racing game.
