ToCA Race Driver 3 is, without a doubt, my favorite racing game since Bump ‘n’ Jump on the Intellivision, and I’m glad this one ended up back on my desk. The racing options/styles are so deep and graphics/performance so great that I imagine I’ll be playing this one for some time to come. Racing fans are going to be thrilled with it, and even those who have no interest in auto racing could get a kick out of it if they can get past the learning curve.

Ludzie z Codemasters, pomimo tego, że stworzyli grę dopracowaną i trzymającą fason, nie odbili się zbytnio od poziomu, jaki prezentowała ich poprzednia produkcja. Rodzi się więc pytanie czy warto kupić grę, która tak naprawdę serwuje nam to, co już widzieliśmy, lecz w nieco odświeżonej formie z nielicznymi urozmaiceniami? TOCA Race Driver 3 jest mimo wszystko grą godną polecania w każdym calu nie tylko fanom wyścigów. Ze względu na nieco obniżony system realistyki, będą bawić się przy niej równie dobrze zwykli, nie zaprawieni w wyścigówkach gracze. Najnowsza TOCA dała mi zajęcia na kilkanaście wieczorów i bynajmniej nie uważam tego czasu za stracony, a wręcz przeciwnie – świetnie się bawiłem. Polecam ją każdemu, kto na widok kierownicy nie obraca się w odruchu wymiotnym a przy prędkości wyższej niż 60 km/h traci przytomność. Wszyscy inni powinni być zadowoleni z zakupu gry.

Toca Race Driver 3 to godny następca poprzednika. Gra posiada naprawdę wszystko aby można było bez zastanowienia okrzyknąć ją najlepszą grą wyścigową 2006 roku. Wiem, że obecny rok nadal trwa i król może zostać zdetronizowany, widząc jednak jakość nowego działa Codemasters oraz biorąc pod uwagę fakt iż nic równie dobrego nie szykuje się na horyzoncie jestem pewny, że każdy komputerowy kierowca bez zastanowienia sięgnąć powinien po Toca Race Driver 3 nawet jeśli kilka pudełek dalej widnieją tytuły o podobnej tematyce.

Taking into account that Gran Turismo isn’t released on the PC, TOCA is probably the best racer I’ve ever played on the PC. Every single aspect is top-notch, and it all adds together to make an immensely enjoyable experience. The ‘tutorial’ is integrated into the game via your Scottish crew, and it just feels like the whole game is seamless. The variety and quality featured in the game is fantastic too. All in all, just like an expensive coffee, TOCA is an amazing blend of various components to form a top-quality product.

V8 Supercars 3 is a pretty much must own game for Australian racing gamers and also offers a lot more bang for buck than just the local series. Codemasters have produced one of the finest and complete racing games ever made and even if you don't like the V8 Supercars (Are you Australian?) then you will find something to like in this huge plethora of racing series. Absolutely positively must buy title!

DTM Race Driver 3 is een game voor iedereen die van racegames houdt. De simulatiefan voelt zich hier net zo snel thuis als de beginner die de moeilijkheidsgraad gewoonweg wat lager instelt. Beiden zullen ze zich als een kind in een snoepwinkel wanen met een ongeziene variatie aan bloedmooi weergegeven en stuk voor stuk kwalitatief sterk uitgewerkte racedisciplines

TOCA Race Driver 3 continúa el buen hacer de su anterior versión, aunque las diferencias son mínimas y se notan más en cuanto a opciones y pruebas, más variadas aún que en TRD2. También se han mejorado los desperfectos de los vehículos y algunos efectos gráficos –por ejemplo, los reflejos sobre la chapa-. Más polígonos por coche y por escenario, pero sin ser un cambio brutal. La física sigue siendo estupenda y se ha seguido mejorando, accesible pero que da opción a los fans de la simulación para hacer el juego más realista con la inclusión de más parámetros en las características de los coches que le dan un toque de simulador serio al 100%.

If you're a racing fan then TOCA Race Driver 3 is definitely a great choice and arguably the definitive PC racer. It has more game modes and racing disciplines than any game before it and it's smart enough to cater for beginners and racing nuts alike. World Tour and Pro Career game modes will take a long time to get through, and the online play will keep you playing for many months to come. It's hard to think of anything else the guys at Codemasters could have crammed into the game, and the way they've managed to retain such a high level of quality throughout the whole experience really is extraordinary.

TOCA Race Driver 3 is about the best complete game I have played for PC games. I rarely come across a game that meshes so many different parts to make a complete game so very well made and fun to play. The game starts you off racing and then explains how the whole thing works with your very own Scottish crew chief. You can race in Classics, GT, Oval, Touring car, Off Road and Open Wheel racing with a bunch of other special types like Honda and toy cars.

TOCA Race Driver 3 may not be the perfect racing game in terms of physics and feel but there's no other game that can match the outrageous number of different racing styles at such a consistent level of quality. The sheer variety of races and the gradually increasing difficulty makes the game very challenging and ensures tremendous replay value. You don't have to be a hardcore racer to get into this game, but you're bound to be one by the time you complete all of the races.

Gra jest trudna. Zapomnij o wygraniu wyścigu za pierwszym razem. Czasem będziesz musiał próbować, próbować i próbować. Następnego dnia znowu. Ale warto. Toca jest bardzo miodna i zapewnia potężną dawkę adrenaliny i endorfiny. Ta gra uświadomiła mi, że seria Need For Speed to tylko prościutkie zręcznościówki, mające niewiele wspólnego z symulacją jazdy samochodem. Dałbym maksymalną ocenę, ale muszę odjąć punkcik za irytację, o którą przyprawia mnie jechanie po raz piętnasty tego samego wyścigu.

Cóż dodać na koniec. ToCA Race Driver 3 warta jest wydanych na nią pieniędzy. Mało który tytuł da Wam tyle rozrywki. W zasadzie znam tylko jeden – ToCA Race Driver 2. Zaskoczeni? Lepsze jest wrogiem dobrego, bo obydwie te gry są wyśmienite. Gdyby nie to i drobne błędy, które znalazłem podczas obcowania z grą, ocena byłaby (naj)wyższa. Codemasters, czyli w wolnym tłumaczeniu “Mistrzowie Kodu” z całą pewnością zasłużyli sobie na ten tytuł. Enjoy!

Przewrotu nie ma... ale kawał solidnej roboty jest! ToCA Race Driver 3 jest idealnym symulatorem jazdy dla wszystkich fanów motoryzacji. Ogrom jaki gra ze sobą niesie nie pozwoli się znudzić prze kilka dni... tygodni, a może nawet i miesięcy. Niesamowicie szybkie, dynamiczne, nieprzewidywalne wyścigi w trybie dla pojedynczego gracza, zyskują jeszcze podczas gry w internecie.

TOCA Racer Driver 3 is not only an impressive showcase of motorsport, but an impressive showcase of the abilities of Codemasters to deliver a all-round very good driving game, despite including almost every bit of four-wheeled action under the sun.

As such, that makes our job of explaining what TOCA Race Driver's about that much easier, because most of you'll know the drill by now. You'll know already that the handling's consistently excellent, that the damage modelling is among the best around, that the graphics are about as good as they get on current gen systems, and what a vast beast of a game it is. Just as before, it's a game that covers all bases but never dilutes the experience. It really is an all-encompassing pot pourri of contrasting vehicles and driving disciplines, and is basically brilliant at making the idea of mastering every kind of four wheel driving discipline around seem hugely entertaining. But you knew that already, didn't you?

There's no shortage of modern racers, but most of the current crop seem obsessed with the atittude of tuner culture more than racing itself. ToCA Racer Driver 3 has no truck with that: it's all about the driving experience.

I’m going to start this review by making an excuse; an excuse for the enormous delay. An excuse that isn’t entirely due to my own weakness. We namely received a review copy of DTM Race Driver 3 before it hit the shelves. But destiny decided to bruise this same copy, giving it scratches all over the place. As a result I became a frustrated reviewer, who, after receiving a decent copy, didn’t have the power to meet the deadline. Is the score suffering from this lame excuse? Of course not, but beware as your reading pleasure may vary from time to time, due to my uninspired gibberish from time to time.

Das Spiel ist definitiv ein „Muss“ und wird nicht nur Motorsportfans gefallen.

Mehr Motorsport geht nicht: DTM Race Driver 3 schreibt auch ohne kitschigen Storymodus Geschichte - dem unglaublichen Spielumfang sei Dank. Schnulzig, peinlich, lächerlich - die seifenoperähnliche Hintergrundgeschichte von DTM Race Driver 1 und 2 mit Nachwuchs-Rennfahrer Ryan McKane in der Hauptrolle kam bei den Fans überhaupt nicht an und bleibt beim dritten Teil folglich auf der Strecke.

Es machte mir unglaublich viel Spaß, dem Kollegen Sauerteig mein Heck zu zeigen. Gut, er ist ein Anfänger (hehe!), doch dank der einsteigerfreundlichen Steuerung schaffen es normalerweise auch Greenhorns schnell, in die virtuelle Welt des Motorsports einzusteigen. Und die ist bei DTM 3 riesig. Ich war nie ein Fan großer Worte und kann deshalb locker auf die Seifenoper im Karriere-Modus verzichten. Also: Sie haben einen Termin! Am 24.

The key to the success of the ToCA brand, and what ultimately will set ToCA Race Driver 3 apart from its competitors, is variety. By variety, I’m specifically talking about the breadth of the motorsports experience, including event types, car classes, series, circuits, and more.

DTM Race Driver 3 hält für jede Klasse eine Vielzahl an Serien parat und ist diesbezüglich die klare Nummer Eins unter den Rennspielen. Erfreulich sind zudem die Trennung zwischen Simulation und Arcade sowie die vielfältigen Einstellungsmöglichkeiten vor den Rennen und in der Box, die sowohl Anfänger als auch Profis ansprechen. Einzig ein paar Ungereimtheiten im Rennablauf wie fehlende Einstellungsmöglichkeiten während Trainings- und Qualifying-Sessions, der Verzicht auf Zwischenzeiten, keine wechselnden Wetterbedingungen sowie die ausbleibende taktische Komponente beim Benzinverbrauch trüben den insgesamt positiven Eindruck. Überzeugend ist neben dem ausgereiften Schadensmodell und dem gelungenen Fahrgefühl vor allem die aggressive KI, die zwar manchmal etwas zu übermotiviert ans Werk geht, aber insgesamt für ein tolles Renn-Feeling sorgt – genau wie der starke Audiobereich.

Erst die Enttäuschung: Wo ist die motivierende Story des Vorgängers? Doch dann die Erkenntnis: Was brauche ich Wut und Freude in Zwischensequenzen, wenn bereits jedes Rennen seine eigene packende Geschichte erzählt? Ich gewinne trotz Reifenplatzer und Not-Boxenstopp meine erste Fahrt auf dem Istanbul Speed Park, zerlege mein Rallye-Auto kurz vor dem Ziel in sämtliche Einzelteile. Einzig auf die Unfalldramen mit der undisziplinierten KI hätte ich gut verzichten können. Fans der widerstandsfähigen DTM-Tourenwagen können mit dem Blechkontakt prima leben. Bis auf kleinere Realismuskompromisse (nur einer statt zwei Pflicht-Boxenstopps) stimmt nahezu alles – von den Originalstrecken über die Flaggenregeln bis zur Superpole. Nicht zu vergessen das Sahnehäubchen: 59 weitere Meisterschaften und das bislang abwechslungsreichste PC-Rennspiel.

ToCA 3 is an excellent racer, and a must for any fan of any form of racing. It replaces and raises the bar in all categories, mixing a huge amount of quantity in styles, cars, and tracks, with a truckload of quality. Simulation fans will get their fix, but arcade fans (like me) can still enjoy this impressive assortment of styles and challenges associated with them. ToCA 3 always has that fun arcade way out by including Go-Carts and Monster Trucks, and the damage can actually be taken right off. In the end, ToCA 3 has reached podium position, and looks as if it will be there for while.

TOCA Race Driver 3 is a different tack for Codemasters, and for the most part it works. Not only is the game filled with cars to race, car disciplines to pick from, and an enormous amount of replay value to enjoy, it also manages to healthily balance noobs and hardcore gamers. The later stages of the game really put you to the test with extremely fast and powerful cars, each one demonstrating the full evolution of that particular discipline. TOCA 3 is both fun and frustrating, depending on which route you take, but no one can say that it's shallow or poorly programmed. The game is beautiful, it offers an impressive array of authentic vehicles from old to new, and all of the classic race courses from Nurburgring, Oschersleben, Laguna Seca, Manama Bahrain International, Bathurst and others are there. It's definitely a worthwhile addition to your racing game collection.

About four years ago Japanese publisher SEGA brought PS2 gamers an arcade port of Ferrari F355 Challenge. The title highlighted the Ferrari's singular brilliance, giving gamers a realistic and terrifically challenging port. Codemasters, the long-time racing development and publishing team from Europe specializing in European car simulations, has for years given gamers simulation style games. Critically and commercially, these games have done exemplary in Europe, but in the US their reception is mixed. Some games do well, others, well, meh. TOCA Race Driver 3 is, in a way, Codemasters way of maintaining its racing morals, if you will, while broadening the game to newer levels for the huge US racing market.

TOCA 3 proves that video games do not need 10 buttons to be capable of entertainment value. It's an enjoyable experience, especially the multi-player with friends and family. There's so much content to offer in TOCA 3 that you'll be squealing in glee. This game has a full single-player experience and it takes TOCA racing online, as well as split-screen. I won't go so far as to say "there's simply nothing like this" as far as gameplay is concerned, like I did with TOCA 2, but if you want an assortment of racing types, there really is nothing like this.

If you're after a comprehensive racing title that'll last you a long time then TOCA Race Driver 3 is the game for you. Chuck in a split-screen multiplayer mode, online play and all the other usual modes (time trials and all that jazz) and you're sorted for a long time to come. If there's one complaint it's the precision necessary to succeed in completing some of the championships. In a lot of the more difficult races one mistake and your attempt to win is over, and while you'd expect a degree of skill to be involved in it, the winning or losing of a race due to missing the line of a corner by a millimetre can get mighty frustrating. This fact is compounded by the sensitivity of some of the controls, with even the minutest of touches of the analogue stick when necessary, sometimes seemingly insufficient. Otherwise, TOCA Race Driver 3 is a definite improvement on the last in the series and a title that would sit proudly amongst anybody's games collection.

That said, if you're a fan of any kind of motorsport at all, you do need to grab yourself a copy of TRD3. Let's face it, thanks to Codemasters spectacularly managing to squeeze an entire sporting genre onto one DVD, as well as the ability to take your skills online should you finish the mass of races on offer, there's some serious miles to rack up before tiring this game out. In fact, given the mass of content, it could be the only driving title you'll need for the entire year.

Najnowsze wyścigi Mistrzów Kodu cieszą, ale też skłaniają do zastanowienia się nad stanem gier na blaszaki. TOCA Race Driver 3 szokuje może nawet nie tyle swoim rozmachem, co pomysłowością twórców, ich zdolnością do wcielenia w życie symulacji mało znanych w obecnych grach klas pojazdów oraz przejęcia kontroli nad tymi z którymi konkurencja sobie nie poradziła.

Dodatkowo - dopracowana szata graficzna, rewelacyjny dźwięk i dziesiątki godzin, jakie przyjdzie nam poświęcić, aby zgłębić wszelkie opcje najnowszej odsłony ze stajni Codemaster, tylko potwierdzają klasę tej produkcji.

Codemasters' TOCA Race Driver series has always been about two things: solid, simulation-based driving, and an insane amount of racing variety. Unlike most other racers out there, TOCA skips the usual methodology of sticking to one main type of racing and overloading the package with a ton of licensed cars. Certainly TOCA does have quite a few licensed vehicles, but they're spread across such a wide assortment of racing disciplines that at times it seems like no two races are ever alike. TOCA Race Driver 3 is the latest game in the series, and it's every bit as good as its predecessors, if not markedly better. The variety of race types has grown significantly, the driving remains a great deal of fun, and the game still presents itself extremely well.

TOCA 3 es un juego más que correcto, que conserva la filosofía de juego de sus anteriores entregas y que harás las delicias de los que gustan de correr en diferentes categorías de manera fácil, rápida y sin excesivas complicaciones (algo que consigue con creces la Gira Mundial). Se echa un poco de menos el no contar con una simulación más completa y sin más añadidos nuevos que le den nueva vida al título, pero aún así es uno de los imprescindibles para todo aficionado a la conducción. Y cuando superemos todos los modos de juego, nada mejor que medirse vía red o internet hasta doce jugadores, para demostrar quién es el mejor al volante.

ToCA Race Driver 3 jest bez wątpienia produkcją godną polecenia. Niemniej osoby, które pokusiły się o zakup poprzedniej części powinny obadać ją w sklepie, ewentualnie zaznajomić się z demem gry. Wydanie ponad 100 złotych na grę – od poprzedniej części różniącą się de facto bardziej rozbudowanym parkiem maszyn, możliwością lekkiego tuningu wozów, kilkoma nowymi trasami oraz trybami gry – może po jakimś czasie okazać się nietrafioną inwestycją. W wyścigach najważniejszy jest bowiem model jazdy, a ten nie zawodził również w poprzedniku...

Augmenting the openness of the World Tour mode is a Pro Circuit mode that concentrates more on each type of racing, offering more depth to your experience if all you want to do is race classic cars, for instance. The one area where I feel this game misses is in its storytelling. Despite this missed opportunity, TOCA 3 contains more racing than you can shake a checkered flag at.

The last TOCA shot itself in the foot instead of putting the pedal to the metal by restricting players with a linear career structure.

This really is a great, diverse game. It's not purely arcade and it's not purely sim. The move away from sim seems to have made some of the graphics a little lower end than competing products, but it is still a very solid experience anyhow, and you're unlikely to give a damn about a dodgy looking texture on a sign as you flash past it as 160 mph anyways. There are still some very impressive effects to be had, and the graphics are really very far from shoddy. Aurally it's not bad either, there are some nice sound effects, but once again, they suffer from a similar lack of refinement as the graphics.

Einerseits begeistert mich DTM 3 mit einer riesigen Auswahl an Motorsportligen, von denen einige (wie etwa die DTM selbst) exzellent umgesetzt sind. Andererseits sind viele Klassen richtig öde, denn dort treten identische Autos gegeneinander an. Sicher: Das hat mit Herstellerlizenzen und nicht etwa mit böser Absicht der Entwickler zu tun. Trotzdem sieht es halt stinklangweilig aus, wenn 20 identische BMW-Williams über die Piste heizen. Fahrerisch gibt sich DTM 3 keine Blöße, richtet sich aber - Simulationsmodus hin oder her - klar an Einsteiger. Das stört mich allerdings weniger als das teils arg pingelige Bestrafungssystem oder die selbstmörderichen KI-Piloten.

DTM Race Driver 3 blijft desalniettemin de beste racesimulator die er vandaag de dag te verkrijgen is, en zou in principe in elke raceliefhebber z'n collectie moeten zitten. Toch rijst de vraag of gamers die zich de vorige versie aanschaften nu weer in hun geldbeurs moeten tasten om meer van hetzelfde in huis te halen. Akkoord, de game is een stuk uitgebreider en heeft daarbij niks aan kwaliteit ingeboet, maar écht fundamentele nieuwe zaken zitten er niet in.

Overall, ToCA 3 offers an in-depth, wide-ranging experience for anyone who enjoys racing games.

Solid physics, nice menu design, and serviceable graphics round out the package nicely.

Il aurait fallu que le jeu franchisse un cap graphique supplémentaire pour que sa note soit plus élevée. Son richissime contenu en fait une des forces en puissance sur consoles et ses quelques côtés délicats à maîtriser ne seront pas suffisamment nombreux pour repousser les plus sceptiques. Une fois de plus, Codemasters a accompli sa mission et peut se targuer d'être à l'origine d'un des meilleurs jeux de courses actuel.

Para concluir, o que podemos dizer deste novo ToCA? A editora tem vindo a repetir-se na série Colin McRae, mas a série ToCA tem crescido. Não me refiro apenas ao essencial (mais pistas, mais viaturas, mais provas), mas à forma como os menus se apresentam mais simples e organizados, os campeonatos menos lineares e mais diversificados. Apesar do jogo ser essencialmente mais virado para o arcade, o modo Pro Career é capaz de agradar aos mais exigentes. Isto, claro, abstraindo-se do realismo extremo de um GT Legends. O mau de tudo é que existem diversos géneros de corridas, que tal como no jogo anterior só estão lá para marcar presença, com uma jogabilidade que deixa muito a desejar.

Codemasters has always been at the head of the pack with its racers, including hits like Colin McRae and Pro Race Driver. TOCA Race Driver 3 is yet another offering that has that new-car smell to it. Regardless of which type of racing you prefer, you're guaranteed to find plenty to like about this game. Have your driving your way, while still getting enough substance and structure that doesn't feel like a mere test drive.

V8 Supercars 3 is clearly the best game in the series. There is a lot of content in the game and a wide range of vehicles and tracks keeps the experience fresh. As we said at the beginning of the review, this game is going to sell despite what the gaming press think of it, thankfully though the game is a lot of fun and if you're after a simulation title that has an unprecedented amount of variety then you can't go past V8 Supercars 3. Alternatively, if you're just after a game where you can pretend to be Craig Lowndes for the evening then this is still a wise choice.

Dobre namiešaný pomer medzi arkádou a simulátorom robí z ToCA Race Driver 3 dobrú voľbu pre tých, ktorých nebaví NFS a na GTR si netrúfajú. Rozmanitosť a pokrytie takmer všetkých elementov závodenia zasa umožňuje hráčom vybrať si presne to, čo im najviac sedí. Je tu pár chýb, nevýrazná AI súperov, ale klady určite prevažujú. Kto v škôlke, keď sa ho pani vychovávateľka pýtala, čím chce byť, odpovedal, že pretekárom, nemal by si nechať Race Drivera ujsť.

he game is at its weakest when it takes the action off road, the rally offering feeling dated and the dirt racing somewhat floaty, but that’s okay because you’re never forced to even try them. The rest of the game makes up for their loss at least six times over, making it unquestionably the most comprehensive example of the genre. It’s a jack of all trades that for once proves to be master of most.

Il était attendu, il est arrivé. Il nous dépasse en trombe et franchit la ligne d'arrivée dans un bruit infernal d'acier frottant contre le carbone, de gomme frottant contre le tarmac. Lui, c'est TOCA Race Driver 3, la nouvelle épopée de la route. Présentation...

TOCA Race Driver may not be a racing brand that's so easily read on the lips of racing fans as, say, Forza Motorsport and Gran Turismo 4, but, damn it, it should be. Over the years, as the series has grown a bit in luxurious options, it's really gotten better and better, and the company continues to stride towards driving realism greatness...even if Micro Machines is still bouncing about somewhere in the back library. The company continues to push ahead with TOCA Race Driver 3, the most impressive entry yet and a game that's more loaded than a double banana split from an ice cream shop.

If you're the type of person that goes for two or three appetizers instead of deciding on an entrée and juggles half-a-dozen girlfriends instead of committing to just one, have I got a racing game for you. Codemasters' ToCA Race Driver 3 lets you jump behind the wheel in an unheard of 35 different racing disciplines. Is it all too much? Is it overkill? While the game isn't without its problems, it does manage to tie together all of these ways to go too fast and deliver a monster of a game for racing fans.

Czy TOCA 3 jest bezkonkurencyjna? Mimo swoich wad, tak. Po pierwsze obecna jej konkurencja jest znikoma. GTI Racing oddaje graczom samochody jednego tylko producenta. Evolution GT jest duuużo bardziej zręcznościowa w porównaniu do nowego Race Drivera. Ford Street Racing zbędę milczeniem. Najgroźniejsi konkurenci dopiero nadchodzą. Ale i tak TOCA 3 pomimo kilku uchybień powinna wyjść ze zbliżającej się batalii z podniesioną głową. Inwestujcie w tę grę, bo mimo wszystko naprawdę warto.

Malgré ses quelques petits défauts, ce TOCA Race Driver 3 reste un bon choix pour qui aime les jeux de courses orientés simu-mais-pas-trop. Il a pour lui des atouts assez imparables, comme une variété inégalée et une durée de vie colossale qui devraient satisfaire un large public. On pourra regretter quelques petites légèretés au niveau du gameplay, de la réalisation ou encore le peu de réelles nouveautés par rapport à un deuxième épisode déjà bien garni, mais rien de vraiment rédhibitoire. Les seuls autorisés à passer leur chemin sont les amateurs de simulation pure, qui peuvent garder leurs sous en attendant GTR 2 ; pour les autres, engoncez-vous dans le baquet de TOCA Race Driver 3, vous ne le regretterez pas.

Ce verdict reste globalement positif, évidemment. Tout va bien, ça roule mais le messie tant attendu mériterait bien une petite résurrection, dans trois jours, trois semaines ou trois mois, sous forme de patch peut-être pour que les joueurs le vénèrent deux mille ans.

Overall then I can’t recommend this game enough. Casual racers will love it for the sheer variety. Play on the default difficulty levels without the pro-sim stuff and it’s a good, wholesome, fun arcade racer (see that – ‘fun’ – an element all too often missing from racing titles). Sim freaks like myself can still get a superb racing experience by cranking everything to the hardest setting, as long as you remember that it’s not a true simulation and never will be! Sure you can tweak the car setup before you race and stuff like that, but they’ll always be arcadey bits (Laguna Seca in the Palmer Jaguar and I only had to brake for the corkscrew and the penultimate turn… I don’t think so!). Again though, that’s because the emphasis is on fun. Ultimately, there’s something here for everyone and not only is this a worthy edition to the Race Driver heritage, it’s also without doubt the best in the series.

Codemasters' new racing game, "DTM Race Driver 3" (or Toca Race Driver 3) is a fine new racing experience. You have the opportunity to race with a lot of different vehicles, even karts and RC's and the circuits to race on are amazing! There's a lot to be unlocked, which makes the replay value for this game very high. Besides the well known story mode, Codemasters also included a Championship mode that lets you just race which whatever you want! Equiped with decent graphics, top notch sound and Xbox Live, "DTM Race Driver 3" is again a true new race experience on X-Box. However, play the game with a steering wheel and pedals and life will be a lot easier.

TOCA's evolution has been a rocky one. Despite the number "3" in this game's title, the series has actually been around a long time. It's gone from stuffy British touring car simulator to poorly licensed junk -- see Jarrett & Labonte Stock Car Racing -- to a melodramatic, story-driven rise through the worldwide ranks of auto racing. Race Driver 3, however, gets the formula just about right: loads of different motor sports to run and very little of the overwrought story to go with them.
