    A very straightforward title that bowls you over more with its sheer numbers than its flash. [Mar 2003, p.92]
  2. The first impressive thing that you will notice about GT Advance 3 is the fluid movement and no slowdown in the gameplay. Everything runs quickly and smoothly.
  3. I found this game too tough to really get into it. Racing fans who don't mind a stiff challenge should get a real kick out of it.

    Just a darn good game unto itself... The framerate runs at an unbelievably smooth 60 fps and allows for some very fast and clean looking tracks.
  5. 60
    Essentially an add-on pack for the original with four dozen new tracks, 97 cars to unlock, and that sort of urgent Euro-beat music that apparently must be included in every racing game.
  6. 60
    The controls are responsive and the ride is smooth. Add to that an impressive sense of speed and plenty of content (including head-to-head link battles) and you have a very attractive model on your hands.

    It's good, and the only game in which I've been able to drive an RX-8 (my favorite!) but the graphics aren't all that good, It's good, and the only game in which I've been able to drive an RX-8 (my favorite!) but the graphics aren't all that good, and it can't really be taken seriously with track names like "Dump Line" (gross!) and "Plastic Bomb" or "Doco Moco"(what?) Still, the controls work well enough. Full Review »
