  • Summary: With the addition of two new courses (a downtown Tokyo circuit and the Monte Carlo Grand Prix course), an impressive range of cars (from Vipers to Cooper Minis), and a soundtrack featuring everything from Lenny Kravitz to Jimi Hendrix, this highly anticipated title is finally ready to be driven.

    Everything a racing game should be. It's tough, challenging and ultimately educational.

    From the little details on the cars up to the driving physics, everything is dead on. I know a little bit about racing concepts (speed limits? What are those?), and the game executes them with near perfection.
  3. 100
    The feeling of jubilation once you have Gold awards for every area of every test is immeasurable.
  4. 94
    Every fan of racing will find something to love in GT3, and purists will find a veritable Mecca of cars, tracks, and realism.
  5. 90
    While it has its flaws, is by far the best console racer on the planet, and betters its predecessors in nearly every respect.
  6. By far the most crafted and exceptional driving game around, but something or even anything new wouldn't go amiss.

    This game is great. The graphics are groundbreaking and put GT2 to shame. The lack of damage will surely be re-dressed in GT4!

    It sucks. It's way too long to get money and it's boring.
