  1. On one side, beautiful graphics, superb notes, great handling and sexually arousing Group B driving. On the other, inconsistent obstacles, inauthentic modern cars, a confused brand and a small evolutionary step means that, to many, it quivers towards Yet Another Rally Game. [PC Gamer UK]
  2. Thankfully the development team also reduced certain impractical elements from CMR 3 such as excessive spinning on tarmac and asphalt. It's no biggie, but it feels a bit more realistic and straightforward, that's all.
  3. The PC version's equally excellent driving gameplay, better graphics, and added, competitive online mode make the game every bit worth purchasing.

    I have started playing this game when I was a kid, it was awesome. The car models are great, graphics ok, but the best is the gameplay. TheI have started playing this game when I was a kid, it was awesome. The car models are great, graphics ok, but the best is the gameplay. The cars are easy to control, but you need some practice. The games looks like an adventure, because you visit a lot of countries. Great game. Full Review »

The graphics impressed me; the swaying blades of grass and tree branches, the light reflected off the Japanese asphalt, the rain drops sliding across the windshield, and the cars themselves are all beautifully rendered. The distant backdrops however are quite poorly done. The car handling is as good if not better than any rally game I've played. Why Codemasters refuses to show us the cracked windscreen from the cockpit view baffles me. The replay is well done, however the car movements appear at times unatural. One more point, I think a poor job was done conveying the sensory impact of hitting bumps and flying over road dips while driving from the cockpit viewpoint. One gets almost no sense that their car has just taken flight or landed with a thud. This was something that was captured almost perfectly in Warthog's Rally Cahampionship Extreme. Full Review »
