    This game is an empty experience. While the graphics are okay and the physics are quite good, its too boring. The gameplay consists of riding an empty highway and flashing other cars for a duel over and over. It is not hard to beat rivals. There is no car damage. There is not really any way to lose the game. Running into the side-rails emits no sparks. Wangan is a better game series and soThis game is an empty experience. While the graphics are okay and the physics are quite good, its too boring. The gameplay consists of riding an empty highway and flashing other cars for a duel over and over. It is not hard to beat rivals. There is no car damage. There is not really any way to lose the game. Running into the side-rails emits no sparks. Wangan is a better game series and so is NFS: Underground of course. The soundtrack sounds energetic until you realize the riffs are similar to White Zombie. You shouldn't spend any time with this one on PS2. Expand

  1. PSM Magazine

    Next to "Midnight Club 2," TRX3 looks dated and downright boring. [Jan 2004, p.48]
  2. Official U.S. Playstation Magazine
    40
    All the features added to Genki's long running game of after-dark street racing are cursory at best and cosmetic at worst. [Jan 2004, p.130]
  3. This is the best yet in the series. The addition of licensed cars, more rivals and highways, and a few new gameplay twists make this one fine racer.
