    WRC 3 is a big step forward when compared to previous games. Milestone uses the WRC license very well - every new game looks considerably better. Better graphics is on par with better driving experience. The game is overall much better but some fans can be put off by a DiRT-y career mode. Still - it is the best rally game out there right now.

    Far from perfect in achieving true simulation, but still fun and with loads of content. Absolutely recommended for fans of racing games, since its customizable difficulty makes it accessible for everyone.

    It's commendable that WRC 3 aims to give a full rally experience – complete with the need to repair cars between stages - and not dilute it with other forms of off-road racing. Despite this commitment to the sport and the fact that the game has some fun moments, its middling execution only goes so far.

    WRC 3 has no challenger this year because there is no DiRT or other rallye game on the market. Milestone improved the game compared to the prequel but there are still some weak-points. The loading time is to long, there is still no split-screen mode and it's absolutely difficult to get started with WRC 3 if you are a newbie.

The physics are fairly good: decently realistic, never too frustrating, and quite rewarding when you get it right. It's fun to go from tarmac to gravel and "feel" the difference. I wish it had longer stages and more of them, but whatever. I got Dirt 3 and this at the same time and I'm spending much more time on this. You can sit down, spend 35 minutes and do an entire rally of 7 stages, which is pretty enjoyable. Full Review »

It's not a bad game because it presents a challenge. Full Review »

Where the Dirt games have spun off into other themed racing events, this game purely focuses on rally racing.

    Beware you will not like this game if you are looking for an arcade style racer. The driving is fantastic if you are a fan of games like Dirt series, Gran Turismo, Forza, etc.
