Thank you! I was trying to remember that other Destruction Derby game I had played, other than DD on N64
I would pay full price for a modern remake/re-release/HD skin of Test Drive: Eve Of Destruction, barring it had online multiplayer.
Loved the hell out of that game. Unlocked all of the odd little Feats, beat the story/campaign a few times, and played it in split screen with friends for countless hours.
That was seriously the BEST game in terms of content, car selection and the amazing game modes. It had every derby version you could hope for, from straight arenas, figure 8's, push off, School Bus races, trailer races, chain races...Hell it even had Detention (School bus tries to eliminate racers doing laps) and Gauntlet (Hearse has to survive laps with several racers trying to immobilize it). I'm probably going to go launch it here later just because typing this is making me want to play again.
Besides that, the dang game had the option to fire exploding chickens from your car and/or make it rain exploding chickens. What more could anyone ever want from a game? ;_;
tbh beamng.drive looks more promising, as far as physics and destruction goes
Better soft-body physics representation. Much, much worse practical use so far. And NCG just does a better job looking damn fantastic and being freaking beautiful with sending bits of car flying and giving you full reign to smash everything.
I'll take the destruction of cars and full environment of breakables in NCG over BeamNG Drive right now.
