    Exellent detail in the cars and scenery will keep you staring at it for days. Everything said about bad handling is rubbish, it's called REALISTIC! I wonder if the people who comment on the bad handling have ever actually driven.

    Great graphics but playability not up top CMR 2. You don't know what position you are in- very frustrating!

    This is not a game - it´s pure realism and may be frustrating to some users - those who love real rally action will love cmr3

    Apart from the fact that you have to be Colin Mcrae in championship mode, this game has it all. I can't stop playing it.

    Best rally sim ever....even better than the rallying area on GT3. Its all bollocks about the cars on it handling realistically...on the tarmac races there close to perfect but on the rallying part they dont slide or skid how a real car would. Where as CMR3 is perfect.

  1. Codies made too many changes from CMR2 (the front end and in-service menus) and not enough (the graphics!) at the same time.

    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.
