The last five or six games (if it doesn't seem much, think again!) I've played weren't satisfying at all, not that surprising of course as they all were crappy. Now, even half an hour of Bombastic couldn't cheer me up anymore. So, I actually started to believe that videogames were no longer the inexhaustible spring of joy in my life. Then Ford Racing 3 ogled between the assignments. Other critics didn't seem to have a particular interest in this game, on the contrary even, so I thought it was everything or nothing: if this game doesn't cheer me up then I quit playing games, so will I? You'll have to read the review to find out or you can jump to the conclusion if you want to cheat.
2K Games has been pumping out a fairly steady stream of Ford-licensed budget console titles recently, the newest of which is Ford Racing 3. Featuring over 50 Ford models from the past, present and future, Ford Racing 3 runs the gamut of street, track and Off Road racing genres in a no-frills sort of way. Still, for a $15 title, Ford Racing 3 is a respectable release.
Ford Racing 3 is a game which will keep Ford racing fans happy, but not many other people. This has been done much better in other games, especially one by a certain Polyphony Digital. Perhaps a rental at best.
The ongoing Ford Racing series is apparently not for me. I'm not a casual gamer, I'm not particularly into budget games (unless they're good), and I guess I just like basic things. You know, like fast cars, good handling, smart, or even somewhat decent, AI, and a little decoration. You know, some kind of presentation. Some small sense of style, or even just a little effort. These are all the basic things missing from Ford Racing 3, and I'm really just skimming the surface.

Ford Racing 3 is a missed opportunity that comes last in the arcade game race.
