Drive top spec rally cars including Peugeot 206, Subaru Impreza, Ford Focus and many others. All cars modeled with an incredible level of details. Cars display real physical damage and visible dirt every time your car takes on hazardous terrain Hugely realistic car physics and handling. Features stunningly rendered locations with extreme driving conditions (snow, safari, mud, asphalt). [Infogrames] Expand

  1. The sheer quality of V-Rally 3 from its graphical detail and effects through to the depths of the Career mode shines through. It’s only the lack of a multiplayer option that spoils the party.
  2. The feeling of brute force in even the smallest of cars is wonderful... Gearheads will love it. [Jan 2003, p.132]
  3. Great speed, perfect control, gorgeous/detailed visuals, plenty of licensed cars, well-designed locations, customization options galore and a menu/option interface to die for easily make V-Rally 3 the best rally game of 2002.
  4. Aside from the usual -- parts loosening and eventually falling off, real-time deformation, etc. -- the cars in V3 accumulate dirt, mud and snow, in real-time including build up on the windshield that fades in progressively as you complete each leg. [Jan 2003, p.74]
  5. Fans of both the series and racing titles will lap this up (no pun intended).
  6. 75
    If you think that you're up to wrestling with sensitive controls, then V-Rally 3's formidable package would be well worth investing in.
  7. While nothing new in rally games it still has that something special that will pull you back in.

    Great single player experience......but do not be fooled by the multi player aspect.....it is one racer at a time....not true multi player.

As a multi player game it is VERY lacking, but as a single player game it is outstanding. Collapse
