  1. Novice or expert, TOCA is your game. The sheer range of features and novelties make this game an absolute pleasure to play. Get it now!
  2. It’s all this wide variety of racing elements and making sure it all works well in a total package that makes TOCA Race Driver 3 an awesome game.
  3. Every year Codemasters puts out a new version, and it's as sure a bet as anything in this industry that it will be even better than last year's--and that once again it will be mostly ignored by U.S. gamers. [Mar 2006, p.44]

    If there's one complaint it's the precision necessary to succeed in completing some of the championships.
  5. TOCA 3 boasts an awesome variety of racing disciplines, and it backs that boast up with some really excellent driving mechanics.
  6. Improvements in the level of detail on offer from the damage modelling to the multi-layered audio, continue to present the game with ever greater realism, and no-one could ever accuse the developers of a lack of variety in the vehicles.
  7. 65
    As it stands, Race Driver 3 suffers from too much variety and not enough substance.

    many different cars, many race courses, good graphics of the cars. In the end you have many games in 1, because you can drive everything here,many different cars, many race courses, good graphics of the cars. In the end you have many games in 1, because you can drive everything here, even mowing machines lol.
    The problems are: bad KI and bad implentation of the tuning part of this game. I wanted to tune my cars, but in the end I didnt because of that.

    It's good, plays well and look sweet. However we've been there and done that. It's very similar to Toca 2. The range of It's good, plays well and look sweet. However we've been there and done that. It's very similar to Toca 2. The range of vehicles is impressive but after a while you've driven them all and the interest starts to drop. Still good for a blast though when you're stuck for something to do. Expand

    Is it possible for a game to have too much content? In the case of ToCA Race Driver 3 the answer is yes. Codemasters should have narrowed Is it possible for a game to have too much content? In the case of ToCA Race Driver 3 the answer is yes. Codemasters should have narrowed their focus a little bit and spent more time improving AI. At higher difficulty settings the computer controlled cars turn into suicidal speed-freaks that think nothing of crashing through you to improve their position. This overly aggressive approach results in a highly unrealistic and frustrating experience. The handling is about the same as ToCA2, which means enjoyably relaxed. If your looking for a simlike experience pickup GTR or GTR2. And the handling of some of the open-wheeled classes are laughably bad. Graphics are a mixed bag. Tracks look quite good during a race but strangely bad during replays. Cars for the most part look very nice though some of the cockpit views are quite awful. The Lotus 49 looks especially bad with its stationary dashboard gauges, no steering-wheel with hands and octagonal front wheels. I think ToCA2 is the better game and if you have that one there really is no reason to get this version. Expand
