  1. 90
    For each item that was updated and modernized, something else was left in the DOS stone age, leaving my mouth hanging open in shock
  2. The huge number of options creates great diversity and replay value, although the options can be a bit difficult to deal with for the novice.
  3. 100
    So utterly complete that comparing it to consumer racing titles like "F1 2000" from EA is pointless. This is on another level entirely; another plane if you will.
  4. PC Gamer
    Not the most advanced F1 sim on the market, but it's the most immersive and enjoyable. [Nov 2000, p.143]
  5. Solid gameplay based on legitimate physics code and a very credible AI component, which should come as no surprise, it’s in the bloodline.
  6. Da Gameboyz
    Hands down, the best Formula 1 driving simulation I have ever played, and I have tried them all.
  7. If you intend to play it properly, you'll discover that it's enormously complicated. Frighteningly so. And that's what makes it so good.
  8. This simulation possibly incorporates the most detailed aspects of Formula One racing ever put on disk, making for an ultra realistic driving experience for gamers patient enough to master the controls.
  9. CNET Gamecenter
    Even with its flaws, "GP3" is the pinnacle of contemporary Formula 1 simulations.
  10. Spank!
    I very much intend to retire from the human race and hibernate with this game.
  11. CheckOut
    Easily the best racing simulation ever created.

    Fantastic, and very realistic. If you play it the way it was meant, its extremely enjoyable and difficult.
