    Compare driving the cars in CMR3 to the rally cars in GT3, and see which game feels realistic - Gran Turismo wins hands down! The cars in CMR3 have no apparent mass and turn in very strange ways. There really is very little feeling of the cars' physics, and the views are a let down - it is very hard to place the wings (fenders) in relation to the terrain when you choose any of the Compare driving the cars in CMR3 to the rally cars in GT3, and see which game feels realistic - Gran Turismo wins hands down!

To summarise, this game was a BIG disappointment! Collapse

Un épisode de la "célèbre" licence trop paresseux et bâclé pour s'y attarder, ce serait une totale perte de temps. Expand

    The physics, sense of speed, handling and graphics are dazzling, top-notch effects that rocket this game to the top of the heap. On the other hand, the sheer lack of game modes is disturbing.
  3. That, combined with the absorbing way the game draws you into the season, through neat animations and an impossibly stylish menu system, makes this the motor sport title to own - for purists and weekend drivers alike.
