Test Drive 5 is a cross-platform racing game, released on the PlayStation and Windows in 1998. It is the fifth entry in the Test Drive series of video games.

In the world of computer games, a product lives or dies according to how well it compares with similar products. This is, of course, old news for any serious gamer. After all, you're not going to fork over $40 for one game when you get a much better one for the same amount, right? Case in point: Test Drive 5 from Accolade and Pitbull Syndicate. While the game is a decent arcade racer with great graphics, plenty of cars, and a ton of tracks, it simply falls short of its number one competitor - EA's Need for Speed III - in almost every conceivable way.
