Added DiffLines:

* ContinuityReboot: ''Unlimited'' could be a fresh reboot of the entire ''Test Drive'' series.



* LighterAndSofter: ''Unlimited'' uses bright colorful graphics and more soothing music, opposed to ''Overdrive'' which relys on dark tones, SeriousBusiness storyline and HeavyMetal music. The WideOpenSandbox helped this trope.

* DarkerAndEdgier: The storylines and the graphic styles are much grittier than the previous installments. To be fair, it is the darkest entry in the entire series.

Added DiffLines:

* QuicksandBox: Due to the fact that players can do anything from completing side-quests, buying cars, customizing their houses, finding wrecks, finding picture locations, and [[LastLousyPoint finding all of the roads]] in a world that has no invisible walls, many players quickly put off completing the main races.

* WantedMeter: A neat variation. The "Traffic Violation" meter only goes up when you hit another car, signs, turn without indicating or blow past a stop sign when you're actually close to a cop unlike other games where they magically know you're doing something wron. It also goes up when you hit a government vehicle such as a firetruck or ambulance. It's disabled completely when riding a [[{{CoolBike}} bike]] since, because the player is easily knocked off the bike by collisions, a chase on one would be one sided against the player.
