3D Driving School 5 [c]
Rating: 4.4/5 - 134 people has rated this post
3D Driving-School combines interactive driving training and excitement of a race. 3D Driving-School provides 21 exercises developing driving skills and reaction on city- and country-roads, and preparing for an examination. We drive across Europe to get ready for such a trip, or just to play and get some pleasure
The countries to drive through are Belgium, Germany, France, the Netherlands, and Great Britain. As you see, we can try both right- and left-side driving. Do you remember the joke about a European Blond, fascinated by London's sightseeing while going by taxi, and suddenly finding herself sitting at the driver's place, moving on the centre strip and not having a wheel to turn away? Personally I find trips through Paris, London and Berlin especially interesting, though driving on country-roads surely has its fans too.
Though gripping and entertaining, 3D Driving-School, first of all, helps prepare for a driving test. It supports keyboard, joystick and wheel. The latter is advisable to really turn a game into a simulator. There are 3 levels of proficiency: Rookie, Beginner (learning without mirrors and looking around), and Normal (actually preparing for the examination). You can choose a vehicle among some cars and motor cycles
The Options section allows to set keys for driving actions, test your joystick or wheel, tune engine and driving noise, as well as the sound of instructions, etc. Instructions are available in English, French and German. During the first 10 exercises we train basic driving skills in a small town Gobesdorf. And here we can choose traffic rules of different countries France, Germany, Belgium, and the Netherlands.
3D Driving-School's graphics and sounds produce an excellent impression. To become fully realistic, the atmosphere of driving lacks just one element - nobody except you violates traffic rules. As for the rest, the necessity to simultaneously keep to traffic rules, watch the speed and deal with oncoming traffic and pedestrians develops reaction, grips attention and arouses interest. Country-side roads are picturesque and not that easy to deal with.
The development section gives an evaluation of your present driving skills. I turned out to be a worse driver here than in reality. At least, I hope so. Pressing the Diploma button, you get a list of possible faults and the amount of penalty points you managed to get at a certain level. If you have passed all exercises at the "normal" level meaning not more then 60 points in total, you are allowed to take a driving test.
